Lessen Soak Time in the Tub
After a long and tiring day, it seems like a tempting idea to bask and relax in the bathtub. It really is. But doing it longer than necessary can damage your skin. However, if you really enjoy taking a bath, you can add nutrients to the water from salt scrubs, oils, or moisturizing soaps.
This will help keep your skin nourished and moisturized. Also, don’t forget to additionally apply a moisturizer, oil or lotion after you get out of the bath and dry off.
