Shower Tips for Ultimate Beauty

Taking a shower seems like a no-brainer.  After all, you've been doing it nearly your entire life. Believe it or not, you may not have been doing it in the best way possible all of these years! Lathering up and rinsing off is the main purpose of any shower, but if you follow these simple tips from Serenity Medical Spa from now on, you will begin noticing a big difference in your skin and hair.


Brush your hair. 

The simple act of running a brush through your hair before you get into the shower will distribute the natural oils from your scalp throughout your hair, which helps to condition and balance it. Going into the shower with your hair already untangled will make it a little easier to comb afterwards and breakage will be less likely.  

Keep it short.

The longer you are in the water, the dryer your skin can become.  Ideally you should aim for about 10 minutes, but try your best to never go longer than 15 minutes. 

Don't make it hot.

Hot water feels awesome on a cold day, but it can quickly dry out your skin. Cooler water has actually been discovered to have benefits, like improving circulation, boosting immunity, and even boosting your mood.  Washing in warm water and then finishing with a cold rinse can even make your skin and hair softer and shinier.

Wash your face last.

You shouldn't just start at the top and work your way down, or vice versa.  Begin by shampooing your hair.  Next, pull your hair back like you are making a ponytail and only condition the lower half of it.  Rinse that out well, then proceed to wash your body with a moisturizing soap or body wash.  If necessary, exfoliate your legs before shaving them next.  Save washing your face for the very last. The steam from the shower will open your pores for a cleaner wash, plus all of the conditioner, which isn't great on your face, will be long gone.      

Shave right.

The reason for shaving your legs toward the end of the shower is because the steam is not only great for you face, but it also softens the hairs on your legs, making them easier to tackle.  This will help to avoid razor burn and ingrown hairs.  Another great tip is to shave with body oil.  It keeps your legs soft and it's also good for helping your razor to last longer.  If you don't want to worry about this step at all, Serenity Medical Spa's professional waxing and sugaring services can take care of it for you! 

Pat dry.

Be gentle with the skin that you are in and always pat yourself dry with a towel. Never rub.

Moisturize immediately.

If you are a lotion person, put it on right after you dry off.  Another option is to apply body oils while you are still in the shower.  This locks the moisture in your skin, where you want it to stay.

There you have it.  Nothing on this list is difficult to do.  You just need to retrain your brain until it becomes your natural routine.  The best medical spa at the Lake of the Ozarks offers lots of products that can be used during your shower, after it, and on a daily basis to help you achieve the healthiest and most beautiful skin possible.  We would love to sit down with you the next time that you visit Serenity Medical Spa and talk to you about all of your options.
