1. Dry brush before you get in. This will help get rid of any dead skin cells, promote blood circulation and improve the texture. (Read more here)
2. Don't make it super hot, especially in winter or cold weather. The heat can leave your skin frazzled, de-hydrated and with no natural oils left. Keep the temp down and try to only take ten minute showers, good for your skin and the environment.
3. Use your time wisely. Put a mask in your hair twice a week, comb through and leave in for 3-5 minutes before washing out. Also as many times as you can a week lather yourself with coconut oil to help keep your skin hydrated.
4. If you have just washed your hair or just rinsed out your hair mask then blast your hair with cold water before getting out. The cold water will seal the hair cuticles and allow the conditioning product to be more effective, as hot water is drying for your hair.
5. Pat yourself dry, don't rub, especially on your face and neck. You can accelerate the ageing process by pulling at your skin. You can also stretch the pores on your face which will make them look bigger and your skin sag. Use a softer towel like one made from bamboo to limit the effects, a normal towel can act as a harsh exfoliant and upset your skin if you rub your skin with it.
6. It's essential to hydrate your skin after a shower. Moisturise as soon as you get out to ensure your skin doesn't loose moisture. You can also apply perfume straight after your shower to make it last longer during the day. Even though we don't recommend scolding hot showers the warm nature of them will open us the pores of the skin and allow it to absorb products easily before shrinking in the colder room temperature.
