The last time you were asked how to use body wash was probably when you were a child. Your parents were checking how far they had succeeded in training you in ‘real-life’ skills. Now as an adult, using body wash is second nature. We enter the shower, grab whatever is lying around, quickly scrub ourselves and then dry. Job done right? Job not done. What if we were to tell you that there’s a proper way to use body wash?
HOW TO USE BODY WASH: CHOOSING
With the variety of products in the market today, choosing a body wash to use that is right for you can be difficult. The best products are those that hydrate your skin. Look for products that contain softening ingredients, such as Oatmeal extract.
It’s also important not to use any products that are harmful to the skin.
HOW TO USE BODY WASH: APPLICATION
Unlike eating cake, when it comes to applying body wash, more is not better. In fact, when it comes to how to use body wash, it’s more like a Van Gogh painting: quality over quantity. Using too much lotion will dry out your skin and take away its natural oils.
When using the body wash, place only a small amount on to a flannel and scrub all over. Using a flannel is better and cleaner than using your hands.
HOW TO USE BODY WASH: WASH IT OFF
When it comes to how to use body wash, this step is carried out wrong more times than people inserting their USB sticks the wrong way round. Do not, I repeat, do not let the suds simply run off you. Instead, use a flannel to exfoliate your skin, making it feel softer and rejuvenated.
HOW TO USE BODY WASH: COMING OUT OF THE SHOWER
After coming out of the shower and drying off, your body will feel clean and refreshed. Many of you will go to the mirror, check yourself out, wink at yourself then get ready for the day ahead. Sadly, there is one more step, but a glorious one it is. To lock in the natural moisture of your skin, always apply a moisturiser liberally over the skin to keep it feeling fresh and healthy.
As we mentioned earlier, there’s a large variety of body washes in the market today. Which ones are best?
