How often should I be moisturising?
ASCIA recommends moisturising 2-3 times a day, and after every bath or shower.1 This is especially important if you spend a lot of time in dry or hot conditions (like in the air-con at your office or outside in the sun). Also, if water is left on your skin after bathing or showering and then it evaporates, some of the moisture within your skin can be lost.4,5 To prevent this, moisturising immediately afterwards is recommended to help preserve the moisture in your skin.1
To find the best way to maintain your skin's hydration, talk to your dermatologist, GP or pharmacist.
