Turn down the heat. This is my current focus, and it's the perfect time of year to work on it. Hot showers dry out your skin, and if you have eczema like me, your skin needs no help in the dry department. After getting in the shower, I turn the heat down just below where I like it.
Focus your shampooing on your scalp and nape of neck. My hair has to be shampooed each time I shower. So to avoid drying out my ends, I mainly shampoo my scalp area.
If you're prone to oily hair, avoid conditioning your roots. My second day hair is incredibly oily. When I condition my hair, I start at the ends and work the conditioner up, using only the little that is leftover near the scalp area.
Keep a few different face washes around. This is one of my most important tips. The condition of my skin fluctuates so much that I need to have a few different products on hand to treat my skin's needs. I have three different face washes that I rotate accordingly.
Rinse with cold water. Your face, your hair, and according to "How to be Parisian Wherever You Are," your boobs. . . I'm serious, one of the book's writers claims that the change from warm to cold keeps them perky by increasing circulation. As for your hair and face, cold water is excellent at locking in moisture. I try to end my showers with with a burst of cold water while rinsing my conditioner out.
Pat your skin with a towel, leaving skin damp. Your skin is softer right after your shower, so forget rubbing yourself dry with a towel. Instead pat yourself dry leaving your skin slightly damp.
Use a soft t-shirt to dry your hair. Ok, I'll admit I'm terrible at this one, but I'm trying. Regular towels can be rough for your hair, but a soft t-shirt or any soft cloth will dry your hair without damaging it.
Moisturize within 5 minutes of your shower. Preferably when your skin is freshly towel dried. The dewiness leftover from your shower will help moisturize your skin when mixed with lotion.
