Don't rush to get dressed immediately after your bath. Wrap yourself up in a cozy robe and rest for another 20-30 minutes. Let the body cool down and the moisturizer (you don’t forget about it after bathing, right?) Is well absorbed. The advice is also suitable for those who shave in the shower: if you immediately put on "street" clothes, then irritation on the skin is possible.


Do not eat immediately after your bath. A healthy break for a comfortable digestion process is 45 minutes. A glass of warm water or herbal tea right away is a great idea. By the way, after a plentiful meal, you should also not immediately run to the shower (you can even faint from such a quick change of actions) - you need to wait an hour.

Rubbing with a towel

Rubbing your skin hysterically with a towel, trying to dry it quickly, is a bad idea. So long before irritation, especially freshly shaved places. Instead, gently blot any remaining water. If possible, it is advisable to wrap yourself in a clean large towel and walk in it for a few minutes so that all the moisture is absorbed. By the way, the same rule applies to hair: in a wet state, they are especially vulnerable, they require careful care - you do not need to twist and squeeze them with all your might.

Application of funds

It is pointless to apply deodorant or moisturizer on a still wet body, since the care products will not be absorbed and have no effect, since they will actually be pushed out by the water. Dry well and then apply all the necessary beauty artillery.

Cleansing Mask

After the bath, the skin is steamed, and it's time to apply a mask, but not a cleansing mask, because you have already done this procedure. Excessive scrubbing (read: scrubbing) is also bad, so the skin can dry out.

After taking a bath, the pores are opened - it's time to make a moisturizing mask for the skin: apply milk, cream or body oil.
