Today we will share our secret tips on all the things you need while taking a bath: Maximize and spice up your routine with these 6 shower essentials you will love!
Start With a Good Cleanser
Start by removing the debris from your skin and makeup residue by unclogging your pores from dirt and sweat using a cleanser. It’s important for you to first check if the cleanser you’re using matches your skin type. If you apply a cleanser for dry faces, and yours isn’t, it might become extremely oily!
Shampoo and Conditioner
After wetting your hair, use your shampoo. It’s good for your hair if you mix both the conditioner and shampoo every few months for a little variety. Try not to wash your hair every day: that will only damage your scalp and cause split ends.
We recommend using a sodium-free, no-sulfates shampoo. Also, try concentrating the conditioner on the middle and end sections of your hair. Remember to let the conditioner sit for at least 5 minutes before rinsing—if you like, you can use this time to shave and other things!
After washing your hair, start exfoliating your body and face (with a special face exfoliant) with a scrub, at least once a week. Also, if you’re a self-tanner, concentrate on the rougher areas like feet, elbows and knees.
The most annoying part of shower for some, this depends on your personal taste, and how fast your hair grows. Some girls shave their armpits every day. Others do it every week, and others, never at all. Remember to use a shaving cream (bonus points if it’s also moisturizing!), and, if you’re using a non-disposable razor, store it in a dry place afterwards.
Now it’s time to be completely clean by using a nice-smelling body wash. Try using one with a thick consistency (that means that it’s really moisturizing), which is extremely helpful to smoothe your just-shaven skin, without leaving buildup or residue. Don’t forget to wash behind your ears too!
After stepping out of the shower, if your hair is too dehydrated, try using a hair mask, then throw on a shower cap, and let it sit for a few minutes for a maximum hydrating effect!
