Know this - A Hot Shower Causes Dry Skin
Dr. Savitha Suri Bookmark and Share
Our skin has small oil glands dotted all over it. They secrete a natural oil to keep our skin soft and help to prevent drying of skin. The cells of skin also contain protective layer made of fats and proteins. This layer locks the moisture and protects our skin from harsh outside environment. Exposing ourselves to harsh climate and taking long hot water shower strips off the natural oil on skin and they can also disrupt the protective layer of fat and protein.

Hence avoid long hot water showers to prevent the dry skin condition. Ayurveda acharyas recommend a luke warm water bath instead of hot water. A “just warm” water bath helps to retain the natural oil from oil glands of skin and also protect the protein –fat protective layer of skin. Warm water also balances doshas present in skin.

Warm water bath for a short time increases blood circulation through skin and helps in increased supply of essential nutrients and oxygen. It removes the dirt and excess grease accumulated on skin.

Start your day with rejuvenating, healthy, just warm water bath.

I have tried this and when one takes longer bath with hot water, the skin starts drying up. This is true in country like USA where hot water shower is generally taken.
