Extra “How To” Tip
As good as it may feel, avoid showering with hot water. Hot water will cause itchiness and dry skin. Instead use moderately warm or cool water. You can turn your bathroom into a steam room by running hot water before you start showering. This will help open up your pores. Block the gap under your door with a towel so the steam cannot escape. Moisturize immediately after you step out. This will allow your product to soak in a lot of effectively. Additionally, make it a New Year’s resolution to drink more water.
