My days are so busy filled with work, all the pets, and of course, Alina, that I rarely get any peace or alone time. I find that the only time I am truly quiet in my thoughts is when I’m showering. Therefore, I make sure that every time I’m bathing, I feel like I’m at a spa! I need to maximize my unwind time to really feel reset and ready to take on the chaos the minute I step out of the shower. Below are some things I do to set the tone for ultimate relaxation as well as some of my favorite in-shower products!
Tip One: Add Ambiance
Light a candle or turn on some spa music to transport yourself straight to the facial chair! I really love Aveda’s Shampure candle right now.
Tip Two: Hang Eucalyptus on your shower head
This has been life changing! Buy a bundle of eucalyptus and tie it around your shower head. As the water hits the plant, it emits the calming smells of fresh eucalyptus!
Tip Three: Indulge in Scrubs and Masks
Don’t rush through your shower time (unless you absolutely have to). I use the time to treat my body with exfoliation scrubs or hair masks! I’m currently loving Osea’s Salt of the Earth body scrub and Sunday Riley’s Charcoal Smoothie. You can also never go wrong with Necessaire’s Body Exfoliator.
My current favorite scalp scrub is Oribe’s Serene Scalp Exfoliating scrub!
Tip Four: Keep Skincare in the Shower
Prolong that alone time by also doing your skincare routine in the shower! Bonus is that you are killing two birds with one stone. I always keep a cleanser or two in my shower so I can remove my makeup and clean my face in peace. Naturium’s Fermented Rice Enzyme Cleanser is currently my go-to!
