Showers and Skin Care

Showers are great for acne-prone skin.

The constant flow of running water opens pores and is more effective at removing dead skin cells and other impurities than a bath.

To get the most skin-clearing benefits from your shower, use a gentle cleanser to dissolve dirt and oil on your body, and a different cleanser suited to the skin on your face. After you’ve lathered up, rinse well with warm water. Avoid hot water, which can deteriorate the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

Use a clean towel to pat your skin dry. No rubbing! Your risk irritating your skin more.

Bonus tip: A good workout is great for your skin, but make sure you shower immediately after to remove the sweat and sebum that has accumulated. By giving your skin a clean slate, you’ll minimize the risk of breakouts and keep it protected.
