Shower cream: express hydration in the shower


If you don't have the time or inclination to take the time to apply a body moisturiser, there are quick and effective solutions to moisturise your skin in record time.

Well-moisturised skin doesn't just look good on the outside. When your epidermis is well nourished, you don't experience any signs of irritation, itching, redness, or even allergies or dermatitis. The problem is that it's not always easy to maintain a good level of hydration throughout the day, whether it's because you don't have enough time or you don't feel like it. The good news is that it is definitely possible to simplify your routine and speed up the process by using special products in the shower.

Here are a few suggestions for products that will help you get beautiful, well nourished and delicately scented skin in no time at all. No more excuses!

Step one

Focus on cleansing your skin

Start by cleansing your body to prepare it for a moisturiser. When showering, remember to avoid using hot water. High temperatures are bad for your skin because they interfere with your body conserving the water it needs. So it's better to take showers in lukewarm water or even better - if you can - cold water. Grit your teeth, it's for a good cause!

The next step is to choose the right soap for your everyday use. Avoid frequent use of deep cleaners. Opt for gentler products, like Ucuuba creamy soap from the Ekos range.

Step two

Moisturising in the shower

Once your skin is clean, this is the ideal time to apply an effective shower cream. This product forms a protective layer on the surface of the skin that doesn't rinse off. It allows the active substances in the product to penetrate the skin and nourish it deep down; also protecting from external aggressions, such as changes in temperature, air humidity or pollution.

Compared with traditional versions, this product generally provides longer lasting hydration. This makes it the ideal choice for women who don't have the time or patience to pamper their body after showering.

Who is this product for?

Suitable for everyday use, these shower creams are suitable for all skin types, all year round.

For skin that is excessively dry all over or just in certain areas of the body, products containing oils or moisturising lotions may be more appropriate. Try our Triple phase Shower Oilsand Ekos Castanha or Ekos Caca Shower Creams.

On days when you notice your skin is particularly dry, supplement these treatments by applying a special after-shower cream.
