#1 Temperature

Of course, we all have our temperature preferences, some like it hotter and some cooler. But there is a perfect temperature you should stick to. It is 95 degrees Fahrenheit. If you prefer your water hotter, you should reconsider that, since when the water is too hot, it has a bad influence on your skin, making it too dry and oil-free, which makes you more prone to various bacteria.

#2 Duration

If you like long showers, the effect they have on your skin is pretty much the same as when you make your shower too hot. 10 minutes is more than enough, keep that in mind.

#3 Foam

Many people think that the foamier your soap or gel is, the better. The truth is quite the contrary, since too much foam dries your skin out.

#4 Sponge

No matter how much you like your old sponge, it is better you substitute it with a new one, at least every 4 weeks. The thing is, old sponges are like safe houses for fungus and bacteria, and you certainly do not want to spread them over your body over and over again.

#5 Drying out

You need to do this correctly too. Keep in mind, that rough towels will leave your skin wet, and that is not good. What is more, make sure after you pat yourself dry with a towel, you apply a moisturizer to your body to keep your skin hydrated.
