All you need to know about Shower
What is the difference between body wash and shower gel?
Texture and consistency are the main differences between body washes and shower gels. Shower gels are better for people with oily skins as they contain more soap, while body wash is usually more creamy and like a liquid soap rather than a gel.
What is the best way to use a shower gel?
This depends on how you prefer to cleanse. Some people prefer using a sponge, loofah or wash cloth, or a bath lily, while others prefer to squeeze the gel directly into the hands and lather up. There isn't really a wrong way to use shower gel – it's whatever works best for you. Just remember to rinse it off thoroughly.
What do I apply to my skin after using a body wash?
After showering, your skin can lose moisture, as lukewarm or hot water can strip your skin of its essential oils. Apply a body lotion or moisturiser when you get out of the shower, ideally while your skin is still slightly damp, as this will help your skin to rehydrate and get back any moisture that it lost previously.
Can I use shower gel as a shampoo?
It isn't generally advisable to use shower gel on your hair, rather than shampoo. Shower gel is designed to clean the skin and remove oil and impurities, and it can therefore be overly drying to hair, making it more brittle and prone to damage. While using it once (when you've run out of shampoo) probably won't harm your hair, regular use will.
