The 3-item Shopping List for Better Skin
Shower supplies that are tried and tested
(SPOT.ph) The key to getting healthy, flawless skin is in the number of baths you take in a week, according to a U.S.-based dermatologist.
Dr. Casey Carlos, a dermatologist, shared with Today.com that, "it’s not how often you bathe, but how you bathe matters." She recommends taking short showers with lukewarm water, and scrubbing only potentially smelly parts (read: underarms, genitalia), then moisturizing your entire body right after. Too much washing and scrubbing damages your skin by stripping it of natural moisture, leaving it dry and extra-sensitive, which leads to flaky, itchy, or blotchy skin.
Here’s a quick three-item shopping list on shower necessities that will do less damage to your skin.
