Why Does Showering Dry Out Skin?

Read Transcript

Well, the showering itself is not so much a problem as the temperature of the water. So if the water is super hot, the hot water is actually stripping your skin of moisture and then staying in the shower too long is also making it such that your body's going to dry up, because you're in there too long.

You have to remember the minute you get out of the shower, you have to immediately put your moisturizers on that's when your skin is best able to receive moisture. You put on your moisturizer all over and you get in and out of the bathroom quickly.
