And while it may be tempting to lounge in your towel for more than a few minutes post-rinse, you should try to apply your lotion ASAP after stepping out. “If you wait too long, you miss that narrow window of opportunity to really trap and seal those nourishing ingredients in the skin before all the water evaporates off the surface, further compromising your skin,” board-certified dermatologist Whitney Bowe, M.D., previously told mbg.
If you’re looking to rinse, moisturize, and be on your way, then you’ll want a product that absorbs quickly. Let us recommend our go-to for all-day hydration: The mbg postbiotic body lotion.
This formula is packed to the brim with ultra-hydrating ingredients that will help replenish the moisture lost from the shower and summer sun yet fully soaks in within a few minutes so you don’t have to leave the house with a sticky layer on your skin.
