FYI: You're Showering All Wrong
Tired of unruly hair and dry skin? It's time to give your showering routine a facelift
The fix: You've made it this far -- it'd be tragic to sabotage your entire shower by getting sloppy once you step out onto the bathroom mat. Use a fluffy towel to lightly pat, not scrub or rub, your body. Then, lock in moisture by applying oils and lotions within five minutes of exiting the shower and before opening the bathroom door to take advantage of the humidity, damp skin and open pores.
As for your hair: "Gently squeeze excess water with a towel and never wring your hair," says Mitgang. "It's fine to wrap it up in a towel if it's only up there for a few minutes. Really, you want to let it breathe and start drying right away to get all that moisture off of your scalp."
