Avoid Steamy, Hot Showers
Hot water can be known to strip delicate lipids from the skin. “Take shorter warm, not hot showers and apply moisturizer while the skin is a little damp,” says Dr. Anne Chapas, a New York City-based dermatologist who is the founder and Medical Director of Union Square Laser Dermatology. “Hot water causes water to evaporate quicker than lukewarm water. Stick to lukewarm showers if your skin is dry.”
