A long hot bath is seen as the pinnacle of selfcare. The combination of hot water, salts, and oils, perhaps a candle and some relaxing music, is conducive to reducing stress and instilling a sense of calm. And while a bath is still our relaxing go-to, the Everything Shower is becoming equally important. Less focused on the pampering side of selfcare, the Everything Shower involves condensing all our shower rituals and every step of maintenance, in one shower session.
What is an Everything Shower?
Originating on social media where content creators shared their three-hour weekly showers, the Everything Shower has taken on a life of its own. It has become a weekly head-to-toe routine that includes pre-shampoo hair treatment, a thorough exfoliation, shaving (if you partake), a face mask, and just about everything else you can imagine. Read on for our Everything Shower checklist.
Your Everything Shower Routine
Begin with exfoliation
An Everything Shower must have an element of exfoliation. Double up your body cleansing step to incorporate a body buff with Exfoliating Body Wash. This luxurious exfoliating body wash leaves skin feeling silky smooth and perfectly moisturized thanks to its blend of strawberry seeds, lightweight oils, and skin friendly naturals. Dampen skin and apply a generous amount of Exfoliating Body Wash to the palm of your hand or a shower mitt and work into skin in large circular motions.
Scent layering is crucial for the Everything Shower. Your shower’s steam will mingle with the fragrance, adding a pampering tone your shower, while scenting your skin with fragrance that will last long after you’ve dried off. Try Almond Coconut, a seductively warm combination of Coconut, Almond, Vanilla, Heliotrope, and Musk, Néroli du Sud, a sensual blend of Orange Zest, Neroli, Lavender, and Verbena Ambre Vanille, a warm comfort of Amber and Vanilla, infused with fresh floral notes of Tangerine, Tiger Orchid and Heliotrope, and enhanced by Almond, Brown Sugar, Coconut and musky Sandalwood.
Layer up on moisture
After shampooing, conditioning, masking, and shaving (if you choose to), it’s time to moisturize. Massage a few drops of oil into your skin while it’s still damp from the shower to seal in hydration. Opt for a formula that not only hydrates but conditions and protects skin with antioxidants such Aromatic Bath & Body Oil. Enriched with Baobab, Jojoba, and French Plum Seed Oils, this silky oil provides 48-hours of hydration and a lingering delicate scent. Winding down for the evening? Try Ambre Vanille with Almond, Brown Sugar, Coconut, and Musky Sandalwood. The fragrance Néroli du Sud, is uplifting with Orange Zest and Neroli, making it the ultimate hydrator for the morning.
Once the oil has had a chance to settle in, apply a generous layer of Serum Body Cream to treat skin, improve firmness, and add an extra boost of moisture. The silky formula contains French Olive Oil, French Plum Seed Oil, and Glycerin and has been proven to instantly hydrate and soften skin, and boost radiance, smooth, and support the skin barrier for up to 48-hours.
Finish with scent
Whether you are going out or staying in an Everything Shower must always finish with a mist of fragrance. The Eau de Parfum collection is a series of deliciously addictive fragrances with hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested formulas. Choose from soft and sensual Ambre Vanille, seductive Almond Coconut, invigorating Néroli du Sud, and luxurious Vanille.
