Try this moisturiser hack for softer skin in half the time
It’s hard enough to find time to work, socialise, exercise, catch up on episodes of The Crowns and do a decent skin care routine twice a day, let alone adding head-to-toe moisturising into the mix.
But while we can’t reduce your work hours or attend your gym classes for you, we can offer you a speedy moisturising hack to guarantee smoother skin in half the time.
We understand complaining about having to moisturise seems like a total ‘first-world problem’, however, the struggle of standing on cold bathroom tiles with no clothes on is REAL.
Not to mention the time it takes waiting for the moisturiser to absorb before you can get dressed again.
But while avoiding hypothermia is important, so is having year-round soft and smooth skin.
The good news is, you can now have one without the other (yes, that means soft skin without the hypothermia and…. hypothermia without the soft skin?).
Moving right along, shall we?
As it turns out, you can now ditch the time-consuming step of completely drying off from your shower before applying your moisturiser. How, what and why? Because moisturising your limbs while they’re still damp will actually lock in the moisture more effectively. And when it comes to speeding up the waiting period, rubbing moisturiser into damp skin rather than dry takes half the time to absorb.
And, to do you one better, these ‘in-shower moisturisers’ can be used before you even step out of your steamy comfort: NIVEA In-Shower Rich Body Lotion, Sensori+ Detoxifying & Rejuvenating Shower Oil Toowoomba Carnival 4350, Jergens Wet Skin® Moisturiser with Hydrating Coconut Oil
