Tips & Tricks: Shower Time
As opposed to plain soap, body washes fall under the TLC for skin category… But how do you choose the right daily body cleanser for you?
- As per skin type: For as much time as we spend in it, most of us don’t know very much about our skin, especially what “skin type” we have. You may have: a “balanced” normal skin, a “shiny” oily skin, an “itchy” dry skin, a “reddish” sensitive skin or a “ping-pong” combination skin. Choose a body wash that made for your skin as opposed to any thing off the rack.
- Read the labels: Though body washes and cleansers just came in bottles? Wrong. You have so many “types” to choose from: mineral bath salts, foaming gels, bath oils, moisturizing bath bars, bubble bath, bath sponges, exfoliating soaps and antibacterial washes. Which to choose – no one product can be your skin’s elixir so it’s best to choose several different products, by rotation. You can use an exfoliating wash one day and vitamin-E enriched one the next and finally a purifying wash once a week. Do remember to consult a dermatologist if your skin gives you considerable problems, or if you have a skin condition such as rosacea before buying a new product.
- Scented or unscented? Most cleansers you’ll encounter will have some type of perfume added – you choose to smell like a mango or frangipani – plenty choice available. The downside is that you may find a great product, only to discover you smell like a big apple. Also sensitive skins don’t react well to the chemicals and perfumes. Unless you love scents and like layering – choose an unscented product that gives you all the benefits but no smell.
