Though we all love a long, relaxing shower in winter, you may need to cut back on your time in there if you want to protect your skin. In fact, winter is the time to be extra gentle on your skin, which includes less time exposing your skin to water and from drying out excessively.

In addition to taking shorter showers, it’s also important that your showers include cooler water. Hotter water dries out your skin just like the cold air of winter, which only compounds the damage done to your skin. As an added bonus, you won’t be as uncomfortable stepping into the cold air of your bathroom if you’re showering with cooler water. (2)

Specifically, hot water is particularly damaging to your epidermis – the outermost layer of your skin. This can lead to the reduction of key oils your body naturally produces, and the potential damaging of your skin’s protective barrier, thus limiting your skin’s ability to retain moisture. (3)

 

QUICK TIP: The inflammation created by winter showers can lead to peeling skin similar to a sunburn, as well as itchiness. Protect your skin all winter long with the therapeutic grade essential oils found in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY WASH! (4)

 

It’s simple: hot showers are dangerous to your skin, but they can be especially dangerous to your skin in winter. This is because your newly dry skin actively seeks out moisture in winter that can often be hard to come by. What results is dehydrated skin that is in desperate need of both moisture and retention.

 

Taking shorter showers doesn't have to mean you have to be any less clean. Enjoy freshness all day and night with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ACTIVATED CHARCOAL BODY WASH today!

 

For best results, it’s recommended that you limit your showers to no more than ten minutes and warm water. It’s also essential that you MOISTURIZE immediately after you shower, which will help lock this essential moisture into your skin as you re-enter the dry, winter air. (5)

This is so important because longer and hotter showers can actually aggravate certain conditions like rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema, as well as cause the worsening of allergy symptoms and the chances of skin infection. (6)

TIPS TO BETTER SHOWERS

 

You have microorganisms on your skin, and they’re important. As a matter of fact, they’re so important that losing them directly leads to a loss of protection for your skin. Winter showers can remove these essential microorganisms, leading to skin problems that can worsen once you step outside. One way to prevent this is by reducing your use of harsh over-the-counter soaps and shampoos.

It’s also important that once your shower is over, you don’t dry yourself harshly. Instead, simply pat your skin dry without rubbing. And as far as what you can do before your shower, close your bathroom door, which will add steam into the bathroom and increase the humidity in the room, thus boosting the health of your skin. (7)

 

Cool showers can smell great too! Enjoy the refreshing smell of lemongrass all winter long with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY WASH today!

 

You may argue that the damage to your skin is worth it because of that terrible cold feeling you get once you step out of the shower, but here’s a quick tip to prevent this: simply cool down the water before the end of your shower, then dry off before stepping out. This will lessen the sudden rush of cold you may feel and help you to protect your skin. (8)

 

QUICK TIP: During your short and cool showers, don’t forget your hair! Nourish your hair and protect yourself from dryness and bacteria by using GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL HAIR OIL today! (9)

 

Now that we know how to shower, let’s talk about some of the benefits cooler water can not only have for your skin, but your overall bodily health. Cooler showers help to raise the blood flow to essential organs, boosting your flow of blood and clearing your skin as a result of the elevated circulation.

And just like many things that may seem scary at first, it may take some time for your body to adjust to these cooler showers. And if you need time to ease into these showers, that's fine too. You don’t have to go all-cold in the shower, but even less than a minute in a cold shower can help your body. (10)

It’s also important you analyze how often you shower. Overwashing your body – just like those of us who overwash our hands to the point of dryness and cracking – can lead to unevenness in your skin. Be extra careful to only wash when you need to, and with the right ALL-NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS, which will help you achieve your BEST SKIN HEALTH EVER ever despite the cold!
