The bath or shower is the best place for you to take care of your beauty routine and skin care needs. Take for example, in the shower or bath, apart from cleaning your skin – you can do all the pumicing that is necessary.
You may not aware that water-softened hair is easier to shave and the warmth of the water makes the skin more receptive to lubrication. One quick and easy way to achieve a good body skin tone is to add a moisturizing product to your bath or to use a body shampoo in the shower. Somehow, if you don’t or have forgotten to add a skin softener to the bath water, you may apply a good moisturizer-replacement lotion after your bath. What you need to do is to massage in the product until it disappears, this shall apply to include your hands and feet as well. This can be done either during or after a bath or shower and for treating specific skin problems.
Tiny pimples: This is especially noticeable on the legs, but can affect arms and bottom too. Tiny hard spots are the direct result of bad circulation. To get rid of this, a daily circulation booster treatment in the form of massage shall be used. In your bath or shower, use a loofah, coarse bath mitt, pumice stone or stiff circulation brush and a good lathering soap to remove the dead cells. You should then lubricate your skin by using a good nourishing cream. Knuckle it in — working up from the ankles, all round the calves and thighs. Then smooth in hand and body lotion, until it is completely absorbed.
Rough, dry, scaly skin: This is often the direct result of exposure to more extreme weather conditions and is most noticeable on the legs. The ideal solution is to soak in a warm bath to which a few drops of oil have been added. Wash with vegetable oil soap or use a bath additive instead of soap. When you use soap, make sure that it is rinsed off completely as soap residue can cause scaling. It is advisable to dry yourself thoroughly by a friction movement. You may then massage the affected parts with concentrated body oil.
Wrinkles: These always appear first on the face and hands. Other body parts such as knees, armpits, elbows and between the breasts are also vulnerable to wrinkles.
How wrinkles happen are due to the gradual loss of the skin’s elasticity, this is and is a natural part of the ageing process. Studies have shown that people with fair skin seems to age more quickly; although you cannot stop wrinkles from appearing but you definitely can slow down the ageing process. What you can do is after the bathing and after the thorough drying, you should apply a body moisturizing lotion and to pay more attention to the elbows and knees.
As always, choose a body lotion that suits your skin type for a youthful and beautiful body skin tone.
