Using a bar soap in the shower can give you that feeling of clean which feels great, up until you walk out of your home and realise your skin is way too dry. Yes, even with the humidity of Singapore, your skin can still be dry. Think about it, it is quite inefficient to take a bath and strip your body of oils then replace it with lotion. What is this time saver? The body wash.
Why Use a Body Wash
It may look like it is just a fancy way to shower, but it is actually very good for your body’s moisture. Dermatologist Erin Gilbert who practices in New York City told Business Insider that many bar soaps are designed to give you that squeaky clean feeling you get after a shower. Bar soaps are created to take away oil, and sometimes it takes away too much. A body wash on the other hand does not.
Dr. Hauschka Lavender Sandalwood Calming Body Wash is soap-free so it cleanses skin but very gently. It also soothes the skin and moisturises it. It may take a bit of getting used to, but the body wash and loofah combination is a hard team to beat when it comes to skin pampering.
What To Look For In a Body Wash
Read the labels of the body washes as there are different types and scents for different needs. Look for the lavender scent for a relaxing and calming effect. It is perfect to use after a long day at work. Or even to slowly start your mornings. Dr. Hauschka’s Lavender Sandalwood Calming Body Wash also tones and revitalises the skin with its sandalwood essential oil ingredient. The avocado oil with plant-derived glycerin moisturises skin and the sunflower seed oil adds to its relaxing effect.
What You Don’t Know About Body Wash
Body wash is your best bet if you want more moisturised skin. But if you really want to keep your skin’s moisture, follow up each bath with lotion. When you shower, it is best to wash it off with warm water. And do not make the mistake of squeezing too much out and wasting the product. A little goes a long way, and that’s what the loofah or washcloth is there for. To give you a bit of lather. If you are a germophobe, the body wash is the most hygienic shower option because bar soaps are often shared and then sit in the shower collecting bacteria.
