Nothing is less attractive than dry, flaky skin.
Besides how it looks, dry skin is itchy and uncomfortable.
You know you should be moisturizing. But did you know your shower routine and products have a huge effect on the condition of your skin?
For example, your relaxing, hot shower, is sucking the moisture from your skin. Scientists say that the hot, shower water pulls out your body’s water content through osmosis.
If you want to stay smooth, you better be putting moisture back into your skin while you bathe!
