In today’s economy, indulging in a fancy spa or intensive deep-moisturizing salon treatment may seem out of reach. It needn’t be! Without getting into extravagant, and over-the-top oils and exfoliates, without having to spend any more than one to three extra minutes each day, you can motion as in the shower. Allow for some excess cream or lotion to remain sitting on the skin. If possible, allow yourself approximately one to two full minutes of standing, naked in the bathroom. This will not only allow your pores to fully get the advantages of the steam continuing to circulate in the room, but also give the rest of the epidermis (top layer of skin) a chance to fully absorb every last drop of moisture.
After your chosen moisturizer has been fully absorbed, if you have exceptionally dry skin, it may also be prudent, while still in the steam-filled room, to double up: re-moisturize your entire body, this time with a thinner layer of cream, and wait another moment before dressing to allow full absorption.
Be sure to use a skin-type specific moisturizer on the face that includes an SPF of at least 15 in order to enjoy the full benefits of your steam shower in both the short and long run. For an added ‘glow’, after applying your facial lotion/cream and before exiting the washroom, very gently, quickly and lightly use your fingers to slap the apples of the cheeks to further improve the circulation.
Walk out of your bathroom, feeling rejuvenated, pampered and fully moisturized! Who needs an expensive, time consuming spa? You’ve got everything you need right at home.
