Why you're showering the wrong way
Here's how to do it right, according to dermatologists
A long, hot shower is sometimes a highlight of our day, what with its ability to relax our muscles and both literally and figuratively wash the grit away. But the way you've been showering your whole life might actually be harming your skin.
"Skin care starts in the shower," board-certified dermatologist Mona Gohara told Well+Good. "It involves what you’re cleansing with, how frequently you cleanse your skin, how you shave, and how you exfoliate. Everything that happens in there really, really matters—not just for your face but for your entire body and your microbiome."
We all assume we know how to shower because we've been doing it our whole lives, but you're probably making mistakes without even knowing it. Click through to learn all about the tips dermatologists recommend for how to have the most optimal shower experience for healthy, glowing skin.
