Shower Secrets For Softer Skin
Is it really possible to shower your way to softer skin? It’s a curious thought, but yes it’s possible.
If it’s possible then, why moisturize after bathing, if I’m getting softer skin in the shower?
For those not so obvious reasons, there actually is a difference. First off, I would never recommend not using a moisturizer after showering, because taking steps in-shower to soften the skin, doesn’t necessarily ensure nourished skin. On the contrary however, having hydrated skin does help with softening it. (The wonders of the human body)
Pulling double duty in the bathroom can actually enhance your skin’s results and appearance.
Several body products and natural methods can help you achieve softer skin. Here are just a few:
Keep in mind, shaving is a natural and affective way to exfoliate. Shedding the dead skin whether using an exfoliating product or a razor will help to achieve softer, and luminous skin.
2. In-Shower Moisturizers
These products are genius- think of them as a conditioner for your body. Typically they’re used post-cleansing, much like a hair conditioner is, and gets rinsed off right before you’re ready to dry off. These also help to nourish the skin, which in turn can soften it over time with continued use.
3. Body Washes/Soaps with Hydrating Ingredients
I’ve found that this tip is especially useful for getting softer skin in the shower. Being conscious of the products you put on your body can help you to discover what does and does not work for your skin. Hydrating soaps that put moisture back into your skin rather than stripping it, are some of the best kind. Dial’s Ultra Fresh Hydrating Body Wash with Coconut Water and Bamboo Leaf Extract is one of my absolute favorites!
4. Using A Softer Water Setting
How many of you knew that harsh water pressure and/or temperatures could negatively affect your skin? It’s true. By changing your shower head setting to a gentler one (if you have the option) is a very simple way to shower yourself to softer skin!
Lastly, don’t forget to slather on your favorite lotion or cream once out of the tub. Dry skin is the very opposite of soft skin after all!
