The Best After Shower Products For Your Skin & Body
It's no secret: the secret to the smooth, glowing Instagram skin we all covet is your after shower routine. Once you step out of that steamy sauna, the next 10 minutes are key into preserving that moisture and locking it in for the next 24-48 hours. Here at Edith & June, we've tried so many products to achieve that soft look, and we think we've nailed it.
Step One: Mask On
Before you even open the bathroom door, locking in that steamy moisture is the best way to prevent the drying effect afterward, so applying a hydrating mask will keep skin from becoming tight. Our favorite thick, moisturizing mask is the Leahlani Meli Glow that you can apply to warm, dry skin and leave on for about 15-20 minutes while you finish the rest of your after-shower routine. If you want a thinner, less noticeable mask, the Josh Rosebrook Hydration mask, is a thin mask that turns invisible on the skin and allows ultra hydration, plus you can leave it on for as long as you like, and use as often as you'd like a week.
Step Two: Lotion On
Another quick step is to apply lotion while your skin isn't wet but still supple and damp. Applying your body butter or lotion as quick as possible helps to seal in any moisture, and some moisturizers actually work better when applied with a little bit of water. Our absolute favorite is the Juice Beauty Green Apple moisturizer- it's light, smells faintly like apples and leaves the skin supple and smooth while drying quickly for relief from that sticky feeling. It's also $20 for a tube that lasts about 3 months, you can't beat that.
Step Three: Glowy Body Oil
Once your lotion has dried, we love to apply a body oil with a little shimmer- not disco ball status, but a little something to look extra healthy. We love the Kopari Coconut Body Glow for an instant luscious look without overdoing it-plus a touch of color for the paler ladies.
Step Four: Mask Off, Facial Mist
Now's the time to remove your mask and follow up immediately with a hydrating facial mist. The Hannes Dottir Mineral Mist is another great mask with a hydrating collagen boost to help plump skin and keep it cool, especially after a hot shower.
Step Five: Reduce Any Puffiness
And our last step to glowing skin? Jade Roll it to perfection. Using a rose quartz or jade roller is an amazing way to reduce any inflammation and puffiness around the eyes and the face. It also stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, for a glowing complexion without the heavy exfoliation.
