Shower time. The time to wash the day away and feel refreshed and clean in your skin again. But don’t underestimate the importance of a proper shower routine and how it can impact the look, feel, and function of your skin. Simple things like water temperature, the order you use your products, or even patting yourself dry can create a tremendous difference for your skin’s health. The good news is that there are a few simple rules that can help not only make you feel bright & clean but can also help your skin stay soft & healthy. When you set up a proper shower routine, you’ll find your journey to healthy, glowing skin to be in arms’ reach.
Step 1: Too Hot... Too Cold… Just Right
Who doesn’t love a nice, hot, steamy shower? But wait, you should probably turn the temperature down. Too hot of water can strip your skin’s natural oils, which can further lead to flaky, dry skin and make it harder for moisture to absorb. Instead, you should opt to using lukewarm water, which will cleanse your skin without possibly damaging it. Not too hot...not too cold… just the right temperature.
Step 2: The Art of Washing
You step into the running water, are you reaching for your exfoliant or cleanser first? Your hand should be reaching for your cleanser. Cleansing before you exfoliate helps in removing dirt, makeup, sweat, or any other products you’ve had on. Now you have a clean base to exfoliate. Exfoliating is a great way to promote skin cell renewal, but too much of it can also make your skin weak, we recommend no more than two to three times a week. Now, you should cleanse again. This will help in removing any dead skin cells or gunk that was gently coaxed out of your pores through the exfoliation. The cleanser your using matters too, as many soaps are drying rather than nourishing, so try and find one that is creamy and composed of natural ingredients and no harsh chemicals or fragrances.
Step 3: Pat Dry, Don’t Rub
The waters turned off, and you’re reaching for that towel to dry yourself. Don’t rub, instead pat your skin dry. Rubbing your skin dry too harshly can cause itchiness and irritation to your skin, leading to dry skin patches flaking off and spreading. Instead, gently pat your skin dry, working from your head all the way to your toes, and spending extra time on skin folds. The type of towel you use can also play a huge role in your skins health. Plush Egyptian or cotton towels are soft and perfectly absorbent for your skin, but cotton blends work just as well, as long as you are delicate in the process. Pat gently in order to leave your skin slightly damp, to allow for the next step to work the best.
Step 4: Lock In The Moisture
Now it’s time to nourish and revitalize your skin with proper moisture. Since you just stepped out of a shower, your pores are going to be open. Take advantage of your slightly damp skin and grab a thick moisturizer. Many experts agree that when the skin is still slightly damp, it can absorb and hold moisturizers and moisture in the skin. Use a natural lotion to ensure your skin is receiving the best care.
The Perfect Cammellatte Shower Routine
To make the most out of your Cammellatte products, we recommend the following shower routine.
Step 1: Camel Milk Face & Body Soap
Wash the day away first.
Our Camel Milk Face & Body Soap is a mild, multitasking soap bar that cleanses without artificial fragrances. The Soap is handmade with real fresh Camel Milk, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil and other natural ingredients and will gently clean the skin and revitalize it with a boost of vitamins and minerals. Lather it and generously clean your body, hair, and face, pulling out dirt and debris to give your skin a visibly smoother and softer texture. This soap won’t leave behind a squeaky clean feeling, but instead will leave you smelling delicious and silky soft.
Step 2: Camel Milk Body Lotion or Body Butter
You stepped out of the shower and gently patted your skin dry. Now’s the time to reach for your moisturizer.
For overly dry and mature skin, we recommend the Camel Milk Body Butter. This rich, luxurious body cream is high-performance skin care and a beautiful ritual for your body all in one. The cream melts into your skin, helping repair dry skin, leaving it more moisturized, so it looks and feels silky-soft, smooth, firm, and glowy. The thick, creamy texture holds in more moisture, making it perfect for dry, flaky and aging skin. If you pair it with our Camel Milk Face & Body Soap, you’ll achieve the most desirable smell, as these scents are the same and stack perfectly together.
If you don’t have overly dry skin, or prefer lighter texture, we recommend the Camel Milk Body Lotion. This lotion is lightweight and is able to penetrate deep into the skin’s outer layers, providing lasting hydration. The body lotion is thick and creamy with a smooth, luxurious feel that will make your skin feel soft and moisturized. The smell is fresh and light, perfect for those who don’t like strong fragrances.
