- The Water is Too Hot & You Take Too Long
This one about broke my heart. I love a long hot shower. That sounds amazing right now. Truth is it actually leaves your skin feeling less than awesome so we rub down in body butters and oils to try and seep some moisture back into it. Both hot water and extended exposure to it can dry out our skin. Try to cool down the temperature and cut down your time (10 minutes is average) and see if your skin feels better.
2. You Use a Loofah or Sponge
I really am so sorry to tell you guys this – but that loofah thingy you love traps a ton of bacteria in it that can end doing more harm to your skin. Replace your loofah with a Snarky Bar – they’re just as quick and easy to use.
3. You Don’t Pat Your Skin Dry
Rubbing your skin, face, and hair dry with a towel can be more harmful than you realize. Instead, try gently patting your skin dry to prevent irritation, and do the same to your hair to prevent breakage and frizz.
4. You Wait Too Long To Moisturize
in addition to rubbing dry I bet you dry off completely before applying lotion, body butter, or oils…. am I right? This is a major skin foul! Moisturizing while your skin is still damp is key! Try applying you favorite Posh Moisturizer before you skin is completely dry to lock in hydration for healthier looking skin. Better yet, apply Good Hydrations In Shower Lotion before you step out!
I hope this little post helps you achieve your skin care goals and get you ready for the fall/winter skin challenges to come.
