You scrub your scalp with your fingernails 1
Although scrubbing your scalp might feel good, you're actually doing more harm thang good since it can cause scratching and flaking. Instead, use your fingertips to work up a lather.
Your soap doesn't contain any moisturizer 2
Using a body soap without moisturizing is really damaging to your skin, since it can seriously dry it out. This is especially bad during the winter months, so try to buy bars that advertize "moisturizing" on the label.
Your shower is too hot and too long 3
It's hard to say no to a steaming, hot shower in the winter... but don't overdo it. Showering for too long and too hot can deplete your skin of the natural oils that are meant to keep it moist.
You scrub your body during washing 5
Loofahs and washcloths can be too harsh on your skin, especially as most of us scrub way too hard. Opt for a baby washcloth instead and keep it gentle.
Your razor has too many blades 6
The more blades your razor has, the more you're likely to cut yourself and damage your skin. Instead, try a 2-blade razor and focus on technique.
You don't rinse well enough 7
Lingering products can lead to skin irriration and and clogged pores, so it's vitally important that you rinse off all soap and conditioner.
You wait to apply lotion 8
For the best lotion results, use the heat and steam of the shower to put on moisturizing just minutes after hopping out of the shower.
