Guys, A Shower Shortcut You Can’t Afford

Shampoo should not be used as a body wash, since it will lead to dry, damaged skin.

44/365 better late than never

Your mornings are hectic โ€” eat breakfast, watch Sports Center, take the dog out for a walk, watch more Sports Center. I get it. And I get that you want your grooming routine to be fast. But if you’re using shampoo for both your hair and body wash just to save a few seconds in the shower, Iโ€™m telling you, itโ€™s not worth it.

Shampoos are designed to get oils off your hair, so when you use them on your body, you actually strip needed oils off your skin, leading to dry, damaged skin. Always wash with a moisturizing soap that helps lock moisture in, such as Dove Men + Care Body and Face washes.

For the record, ladies, this goes for you too. But I figured you already knew that.

  1. Haha, my bf uses that soap. He only likes it because it has lather. Really found a hard time finding him a soap that isn’t drying but has the bubbles ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. What is it with guys and skin care? I had to drag my boyfriend to my esthetician to get his dry skin looked at, but he uses Glymed Plus for Men products now and he’s happy. Really, once they get a good product and they see it works, they take the time with their skin.

  3. Hahaha..funny! I used to to this before when I woke up late to go to the office..lol
