3 tips to stop dry, itchy skin after a shower

  • 1

    Give skin the moisture it needs

    One of the main causes of itchy skin after a shower is dryness. And often, this is caused by grooming products that strip away the natural oils which help keep your skin feeling healthy and lock in moisture.

    Try using a milder cleanser like our Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body + Face Bar, which is made with ¼ moisturizing cream and helps skin feel healthy, strong and hydrated. Another option is Dove Men+Care Advanced Care Dry Repair Face + Body Wash, which is clinically proven to help restore extremely dry skin.

    Adding a moisturizer to your daily grooming routine can also make a big difference. Dove Men+Care Hydrate+ Face Lotion is formulated to protect your face against dryness, while Dove Men+Care Replenishing Hand + Body Lotion leaves rough, dry skin on the rest of your body feeling nourished with 48-hour moisture. One top tip when moisturizing: Apply your lotion to skin while it’s still wet, to help retain maximum hydration.

    Try hypoallergenic skin care

    How to get rid of itchy skin after showering often comes down to the products in your routine. So, try a hypoallergenic cleanser and moisturizer to help reduce dryness and itchiness. Start with Dove Men+Care Advanced Care Sensitive Calm Face + Body Wash, which is hypoallergenic and specially formulated to calm and cleanse dry, sensitive skin. 

    After your shower, give skin some added dryness protection with Dove Men+Care Calming Hand + Body Lotion. It also has a hypoallergenic scent and helps nourish and comfort skin with 48-hour moisture.

    Turn down the heat + pat dry

    Hot water can dry out your skin and leave it feeling itchy and uncomfortable. So, try turning down the temperature and trimming the amount of time you spend in the shower. Excessive drying with a towel can also chafe your skin and strip away its moisture, so try patting it dry instead.
