As the mercury rises, everyone tends to shower more. But just as the sun can be drying and damaging to the skin, a shower can have some pitfalls too if certain precautions are not taken.

First of all hot water is a major culprit to dry skin, as it strips the moisture right out. Hot water can cause spider veins on the face and it also creates havoc on the hair with summer time frizzy’s. The solution is to use only cool to lukewarm water instead. 

As it turns out, hot water is not your skin's only shower-time enemy. To further protect the skin try some of these tips.

  • Use a mild, unscented soap
Anything labeled as "gentle" or "moisturizing" is probably a good choice. Using a body wash that also contains moisturizer will alleviate the need to add some on the body after the shower.
  • Leave the washcloth alone
Just wash using the hands, as washcloths, scrub brushes, and puffy-scrubbers are abrasive and perpetuate skin dryness.
  • Pat dry only
After showering, pat and don’t rub dry with a soft towel but it's important to remove all the dampness on the body. By not doing so can lead to chafing, rashes and possible athlete’s foot.
