Do you guys remember a few years ago when the Twittersphere was divided over people who washed their legs in the shower vs. those who didn’t? I’d like to pose a question that is perhaps a little less controversial: Do you moisturize your entire body after you shower?
For most of my adult life I didn’t, much to my college roommate’s dismay. We shared a room for years and I still remember her meticulously rubbing Aveeno lotion all over her body as she smugly told me that she always moisturizes from tip-to-toe every single time she bathes. I will concede that her skin was extremely soft.
