Say No to scolding Hot Showers
Choose a temperature that’s hot, but not too hot. You wouldn’t choose to burn your skin in the sun daily, so why do it in the shower? We all love a hot shower especially in winter, but you don’t want to scold your skin. Extended, burning showers strip the skin of its moisture and wash away the protective oils. This can lead to broken capillaries, dehydration and removing your skins protective barrier. Always avoid running your face directly under the hot water of the shower, opt for a face washer so you can monitor the temperature with your hand before applying to the face. Check your skin in the mirror after your shower, if its looks bright red, blotchy and irritated it’s a sure sign you’re scolding the skin.
