Skin Sin Series: Long, Hot Showers


For many of us, the temperature outside is steadily dropping. When you’re cold, what’s better than a long, hot shower? I personally love to indulge in a relaxing, steamy shower, but I’ve decided to stop: hot water can dry out the skin by stripping some of its natural, necessary oils. For some of us, the skin gets even drier during the fall and winter months. Worse, excessive showering in very hot water can really cause problems for people with skin that is already super dry.

Turn down the temperature while showering or bathing and you’ll do your skin a favor. It’s also a good idea to spend less time in the shower or cut back on how often you shower if it really isn’t necessary. Don’t forget to take the time to indulge in one of our luxurious body washes to enhance your shower experience. After your shower, catch some extra warmth and sip some hot apple cider or cuddle up with a loved one.

Save your skin and resist the urge to take long, hot showers…
