The rule of thumb when it comes to showering is that, unless you have gotten very sweaty, you don’t need to shower every single day. However since most of us were raised to feel a bit icky when we skip the daily cleanse, knowing the proper way to shower is key for keeping your skin soft and dewy. First, turn down the heat and keep it brief. There’s nothing more relaxing and luxurious than a long, hot shower but it will leave your skin dry and irritated. Stick to lukewarm water and limit yourself to 15-20 minutes.
