Lukewarm Bath with mild soaps

To protect sensitive skin, taking a lukewarm bath would be helpful to cleanse and moisturize the skin.  Soaps can dry the skin so it is best to use mild bar soaps or non-soap cleansers that do not contain harsh ingredients and artificial fragrances that can be irritating to the skin.  Mild soaps that contain witch hazel, aloe vera, vegetable oil, herbal oils, evening primrose oil, olive oil, coconut oil, chamomile, lavender, rosemary, and peppermint, are the best for soothing, refreshing, and moisturizing the skin.  After a lukewarm bath, the skin should be air-dried or dried by patting the skin dry gently with a towel, avoiding brisk rubbing.  Using lotion afterwards can help seal in the water absorbed into the skin during the bath.
