When the temperature dips, nothing feels as good as a hot, steamy shower or bath. But before you crank out the hot water consider keeping the temperature lukewarm and only stand under the spray for five to seven minutes. (Trust us, it’s longer than you think!) A lukewarm shower followed by a quick blast of colder water at the end is actually more beneficial to your skin because it keeps it from getting too dried out. And your skin isn’t the only thing that benefits from cooler temps, your hair is better off when you use cool water, especially if it’s colored. Last week we talked about keeping your skin moisturized—here are a few more tips for staying smooth and soft. A hydrating body wash with a built-in scrub is a great way to exfoliate even the driest of skin. To keep your skin looking its best, consider adding Hyaluronic Acid serum to your skin care routine. The formula we’ve created acts as a humectant by retaining water to achieve healthy skin-hydration. A soothing lip balm (bonus if it has an SPF) is a handy must-have to keep your lips from getting chapped and cracked. Hint: It makes a great moisturizer in a pinch, too. Now that you know the best ways to keep your skin hydrated, check back next week for our tips to keeping your hands and nails in tip-top shape!
