Frequent Shower Mistakes

Shower time seems to be one of the best times in a day for different individual reasons. For some it's a time to reflect on past events, seek solace, get inspiration, and most importantly, hydrate and cleanse the skin from dead skin cells to open up the pores and retain moisture.

In a bid to ensure our skin is rid of dirt and dead cells, sometimes we unknowingly make certain mistakes that derail the goal of having healthier skin. 

Mistakes hurting the skin;

Hot Showers; Lovers of hot showers will definitely not love this information, but it needs to be said. Hot showers aren’t very good for your skin and here’s why; Your skin maintains moisture by producing natural oils, but showering in hot water can strip away those oils and leave it feeling dry and flaky. Hot showers can also trigger an inflammatory response in your skin, which can lead to dryness, redness, and itching. To avoid these uncomfortable skin conditions, keep the water warm.

Long showers; Hot showers aren’t the only factor that can dry out your skin; staying too long in showers can do it too. Spending a lot of time in the shower can remove your natural body oil. Ensure you limit your shower to 5-10 minutes.

Bathing Loofah (sponge); Bathing loofahs are great for exfoliating the skin, but ensure you clean them weekly. You can do this by soaking it in hot water and vinegar, or you put it in the washing machine. It is clinically advised you change your loofah every month.

Washing your body first; "A lot of times, we make the mistake of showering first before we wash our hair. It is best to wash your hair first and then wash your body, you need to do this because some shampoos and conditioners can irritate delicate skin or aggravate acne if not washed properly.
