In the cold weather we are all tempted to soak in a long hot bath or shower, but that is not a good idea for many reasons among which are the following:
First, the heat breaks down the skin lipid barriers which help the skin stay moisturized, making it dry and flaky.
Second, it causes the hair to be brittle, weak and easy to break.
Third, pores will open up and the skin will easily attract dirt to enter and causes acne.
The best solution is a lukewarm bath or shower. Its harder said than done, and I am reluctant to do so, but for beauty benefits lets do it!
