Every good grooming routine starts with a shower. It keeps the skin fresh, the hair shiny and makes your body the ultimate canvas in which to work your magic. The question is: what if you’re not showing correctly? After all, bathing hardly comes with a manual and it’s possible that you might have been doing it wrong for all these years. Fear not, there’s still time to master the art of showering! Let’s look at what you need to know to ensure you’re giving your grooming routine the best possible start.
It’s the more the merrier when it comes to showers, right? Wrong. If you’re quick to jump in the shower then you could be stripping your body of the good bacteria that it needs to thrive. The microbiome on your skin is actually vital for keeping your skin looking healthy and vibrant, but you risk losing this if you are frequently showering throughout the day. Dermatologists reckon you could get away with showering just three times a week, but this figure could be increased depending on your lifestyle and how active you are.
You should aim to get between five to ten minutes in the shower. If you go over this timeframe then it becomes likely that you’ll start to strip your skin of moisture. Of course, it needs this moisture to remain tight and in generally good condition. You should always use moisturiser on a daily basis, but not because you’ve spent too long in the shower. All in all, it’s advisable that you start to keep an eye on the clock when showering if you haven’t been doing so already.
Last but not least, it’s always better not to blast the water to the extent where it’s steaming hot. The high temperatures can rid your body of the natural oils it needs to clean itself, as well as bring blood circulation to your skin. It’s not healthy to be glowing red when you first step out the shower and it can actually make your body resistant to certain grooming products if you attempt to apply them before cooling down.
