So Glossies, we’ve got our makeup and face skincare routine down to a tee, but what about our shower skincare routine? Could this be something we need to focus on?
Showering can either feel like a rushed part of our day, or it can be the perfect time where we get to relax, practise mindfulness, and take a moment to pamper ourselves…
If you’re a GLOSSYBOX subscriber, you will have seen the March digital magazine which discusses some of the amazing products included in the month’s edit, including four magical beauty buys and one of two shower essentials!
The Good And The Bad…
Even if you’re convinced that you’re an expert when it comes to showering, it might be time for a refresher on the best in-shower beauty products for beautiful, healthy-looking skin. It may be worth reminding you all that a long, hot shower might not be doing your skin any favours. Too much hot water can actually be bad for our skin and skincare experts advise not to wash your face in the shower – is this new news?
However, of course, showers have benefits as well; they allow you to clean your skin, remove dead skin cells which help to clear the pores and allow skin cells to function. When you shower, it obviously washes away bacteria and other irritants that could cause rashes and other skin problems too.
Non Negotiable Shower Essentials
When you focus on creating a shower routine that helps improve your skin, you really will feel the difference, so let’s discuss some shower essentials…
