The Only After Bath Skin Care Routine You Need
Who doesn’t love a good shower? Whether it’s an instantly rejuvenating morning shower or a long bath after a hard day at work, the time you spend in the bath is special. This is where you often get your best ideas, and it’s a place where you can fully relax your mind. While you might have got your bath routine down to a T, having a set post-shower routine is also equally important. We’ve got 7 post-shower tips for you to follow for healthy and glowing skin.
Step 1: Wash your face
Yes, this may sound funny but many skin experts recommend cleansing your face post-shower. This is because the water temperature you use while having a bath may be a little on the hotter side whereas when you cleanse your face in the sink you can use colder water. Hot water tends to strip the natural oils from your skin which isn’t good for your delicate facial skin. So it’s best to wash your face in the sink post your shower.
Step 2: Pat dry with a soft towel
It is recommended that you pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it with a towel. Try using a soft towel that does not damage your skin. Most people swear by bamboo towels that are soft and do the job without harming your skin.
Step 3: Use a microfiber towel to dry your hair
When you step out of the shower, wrap your hair up in a microfiber towel to wick up the moisture, damage-free. Using a towel instead of a hairdryer is better for your hair as the heat of a hairdryer can cause significant damage. Moreover, microfiber towels are way lighter than a regular tower and have a loop button to ensure your hair stays wrapped securely while you can carry out your other activities.
Step 4: Moisturize
This step is a no-bargain. Moisturization post-shower is mandatory, no matter what your skin type. A shower takes away the moisture of your skin and it is essential to replace the same with a good, hydrating moisturizer. While your skin is still damp, the moisture can be locked in and made to seep into your skin.
Step 5: Show some love to your nails with a cuticle oil
Your nails are often ignored while taking care of the skin. When your skin is soft after a shower, it is best to apply some cuticle oil that helps improve the health of your nails. Slowly massage it on each nail and you will notice a difference in just a few days of daily application.
Step 6: Apply your hair products
It’s now time to tend to your hair. Treat your hair with a detangler spray and slowly apply it all over your locks. Follow up with a leave-in conditioner and a serum for shiny and hydrated hair.
Step 7: Dab on the sunscreen
Last but not the least, use sunblock and pat it all over your body. This is another non-negotiable step that ensures your skin is well protected from the sun’s harmful rays.
These post-shower tips will ensure your skin and hair are well taken care of. The extra couple of minutes spent will be well worth the time as you notice the changes in your skin and hair.
