Long, Hot Showers Cause Dry Skin
“Try to stay out of the shower, keep the showers short, and use a really good moisturizing soap.”
She says you might consider the alternative.
“A bath is actually better with salts and some essential oils to keep your skin moisturized and also detoxed, and then use a thicker moisturizing cream instead of a lotion because it will stay on your skin pretty much all day.”
Pack says you might not think about it much, but water actually dries out the skin, and the hotter it gets the worse it gets. If you prefer a shower, she says a good moisturizing soap will still work, but not if you stay in there for 15 or 20 minutes or more.
