Five Skin Care Products You Should Add To Your Post-Shower Routine

Haven’t we often heard that moisturizing your skin immediately after the shower and while the skin is damp works wonders? If you thought it didn’t make much sense, we would break your long-resting thoughts. A leading celebrity dermatologist, Dendy Engelman, MD, FACMS, FAAD, from New York, said that the next few minutes exactly after you step out of the shower are the most crucial.

Regardless of the oil or lotion you use, greasing your wet skin allows the product to penetrate and lock the moisture. Oils, creams, and moisturizers usually seep in through the dermis and trap the water on the skin. So, it is no wonder that the skin absorbs these ‘anti-aging actives’ easily. While there are products aplenty that would prove beneficial, Dr. Engelman believes in cocooning the skin with items that contain anti-aging ingredients. Think of ceramides, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid, and you’ll know how these will work like magic potions for you. Take a look:

Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Lotion

Thank god for products that don’t come with heavy price tags! This is one such item from the house of Vaseline that will not only allow you to go easy on the pockets but ensure you get hold of a very basic product that will fulfill your moisturizing needs.

The scent is pleasant and sinks exactly after you apply, owing to the glycerin acting as the most potent ‘moisturizer.’ Dr. Engelman prefers this to most other products for it lends the right balance ‘without getting greasy.’ And yes, that’s mentioned on the bottle, which you can trust.

Necessaire The Body Serum

Products that are paraben-free, sulfate-free, and come in fragrance-free options are something most people prefer. Necessaire is one brand that resorts to 100 percent recyclable packaging, which means the purchase is indeed a good one.

Realistically speaking, the body serum is a new concept in the beauty world, but there’s no great or unique ability in it. Thankfully, this product has aloe, glycerin, niacinamide. Dr. Engelman swears by its hydrating benefits.

Necessaire The Body Lotion

The brand has already created quite a buzz with its body serum, as stated earlier. As per Dr. Engelman, the lotion stands out for the mix of three oils- cocoa, marula, and meadowfoam sea oil.

The hydration capacity of the lotion is immense, as it penetrates deep inside the skin. Besides, the ingredients contain a form of Vitamin B3 called niacinamide, a popular skin damage repair ingredient. Alongside this, there are omegas and vitamins to improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness that naturally erodes with time.

Herbivore Natural Jasmine body oil

Are you tight-budgeted? Is the thought of investing in a quality product giving you the jitters? Fret not! Dr. Engelman said that grape seed is ideally carrier oil, which gets inside the deep recesses of the skin and delivers optimum formula based nutrients, like vitamins C, D, E and also linoleic acid, beta carotene, and more.

All these combine to render effective firming and tightening advantages. Herbivore is popular for being a paraben-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and natural beauty product.

Uma Absolute Anti-Ageing Body Oil

Now, this is quite a contrast, and it pays off trying oil instead of a serum! Dr. Engelman says it’s a tad pricey but worth the value. And it’s just because there are many oils combined in it.

For example, Neroli and Jojoba work as effective moisturizers to move inside the dermis and epidermis. On the other hand, there is rose oil containing anti-inflammatory properties. This helps in calming sensitive skin types and the accompanying rashes and redness. Whatever oil you need to help you obtain optimum moisture, this product guarantees you that. To top it all, you have a gorgeous bottle!

The reality is- we all have time, even when we say we don’t! Just like you would squeeze out time to wash those cakey makeup brushes or arrange the desk drawers or clean your closets, you would also care this much for your skin after taking a much-needed shower.

We rarely think about a post-shower routine. But don’t you deserve a little bit of pampering, nourishment, and relaxation for the skin? Of course, you do. So, why not add these products to your shopping list and give your skin the much-needed pampering that it deserves!
