When there’s a chill in the air, you may be tempted to spend more time in the shower with the water as hot as you can stand it. That temptation will be even stronger if you have created your ideal personal bathing space with beautiful Jacuzzi® wall surrounds and built-in seating, so you can bask in the steamy warmth of a relaxing shower while taking a load off your feet.
However, it’s important to consider that cold winter air tends to deplete the moisture in your skin. You may want to take shorter or cooler showers during the winter because bathing in hot water can further dry out your skin. In fact, some dermatologists recommend showering only every other day during the winter, unless exercise or some other activity has made you sweaty or dirty.
You may also want to avoid washing your hair every day during the winter because that can rob your scalp of the natural oils it produces to protect your hair from damage.
How a New Jacuzzi® Shower Can Help
One way to keep your skin from drying out in the wintertime is to be diligent about applying moisturizers. Experts recommend using lotions or gels immediately after you get out of the shower to rehydrate and increase your skin’s capacity to hold water. However, you may be tempted to skip this skin care routine because you’re shivering after you step out of your warm shower and into the colder air in your home. You just want to towel off and get into some warm clothing as quickly as possible!
Fortunately, there are plenty of in-shower moisturizing options on the market. These lotions, oils, and body conditioners are designed to be applied to wet skin when you turn off the water and before you step out of the shower. But where will you put them so you can easily reach them without getting out of the shower?
If your shower is outdated, there’s a good chance that it has only a built-in soap dish designed to hold skin-drying bar soap. Perhaps you’ve added a wire shower caddy that hangs from your showerhead, but it probably won’t bear the weight of all the shampoo, hair conditioner, wet-skin moisturizer, and shaving cream containers you need to keep your hair and skin looking its best during the winter.
When you have a new Jacuzzi® shower installed in your home, you’ll be able to design a bathing space that’s tailored to your needs. You’ll not only have a selection of showerhead styles to choose from but also a variety of accessories, including built-in shelving to hold your assortment of in-shower skin and hair conditioners.
