As a rule, we cream or oil ourselves after showering, which seems logical to us, of course. As far as oil is concerned, however, this is exactly the wrong approach. Care oil should always be applied before showering.
Maybe that sounds a little strange at first. However, when we are not taking lukewarm or cold showers, the water and heat deprives our skin of its natural oils.
This in turn is logical, as heat dissolves fats and once this protective barrier is gone, the water on our skin evaporates much faster and dries it out that way. To prevent this, it is important to build up and strengthen this protective shield of fats so that your skin doesn’t dry out while showering.
Oil is an occlusive substance. Occlusive means to close. Oil seals our skin in a certain way so that the moisture is retained and not lost.
