THAT girl. That girl is someone who leads the most perfectly balanced life. That girl is someone who wakes up at 5 in the morning, drinks lemon water, works out, makes a wholesome breakfast and reads before starting work! Phew, sounds tiring to even think about it but also damn aspirational. To be honest, we’ve all attempted to be THAT girl by gathering our spirits to cook healthy food everyday and say no to the food delivery apps while trying to find the best gyms around us and paying their yearly subscription for only ending up in a pile of fries with a subscription we use once a month when motivation strikes. But we say it's 2022! It’s high time we take care of ourselves and our body by becoming the best version of us. So here is a mini sneak peek into the life of THAT girl with a shower care routine that will leave you and your body feeling pampered, relaxed and shining from within!
01. Prep for shower
Prepping is an essential part of this shower routine as you need to bring your body and skin to an absolute state of relaxation. Head into your washroom and light a few scented candles to set them on a platform (please be wary to keep it away from any electrical/inflammable source). If you have a bathtub- fill up warm water and put your favourite bath bomb or bath salts into it with a few drops of lavender essential oil. You can even put in a little milk and rose petals for extra nourishment. You can even play some relaxing music or nature sounds that best suit you. Once you’ve set the mood in the washroom, take a body brush and dry brush your skin in order to pre-exfoliate it and get rid of the surface dead skin cells. Anybody else craving for this right now?
02. Hair care
Once you’ve stepped into your shower and wet your hair- it's time to start your haircare. Take the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Shampoo to pamper your hair with some good ol’ nourishment and moisture. Infused with argan oil and keratin oil it not only tames frizzy hair but also nourishes and smoothes your locks. Just massage it into your scalp and feel your scalp relax. Imagine you’re sending all the love you could to your hair for being with you on good days and bad. Follow this up with the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Conditioner or if you’re feeling like treating your hair to some extra love (which you definitely should) - use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask to deep condition your hair. Just apply some of it from mid-lengths to ends and rinse off after 3-5 minutes. Enriched with Marula oil this mask smoothens, nourishes and moisturise your hair to give your tresses a new sheen of life!
It’s time to give your body some good loving and cleanse off all the pollution, grime and bad jujus! Pick the Love, Beauty & Planet’s Murumuru Butter and Rose Moisturizing Body Wash and lather it up on your skin. It has a long lasting smell which will leave you smelling divine and it hydrates your body like a dream. You can use a glove scrub at this point to remove dead cells and exfoliate your skin. Or you can go for the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Crushed Macadamia and Rice Milk to scrub and nourish your skin further. Honestly, there’s just something so invigorating about scrubbing your body that gives any shower an instant luxury feel while making you feel smooth and pampered by the end of it.
04. Pamper your body
Once out of the shower use a microfiber towel or cotton cloth to pat your body and hair dry. Apply the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum to instantly control frizz and give your hair shine. Next when your body is 90 percent dry, take the Vaseline Calming Lavender Body Lotion that will instantly soothe your senses and deeply moisturise your body making it satin soft! This is also a great time to sheet mask with Pond’s Nourishing Sheet Mask With Vitamin E And 100% Natural Avocado to pamper your face with some supple loving!
05. Some affirmations
It’s time for some affirmations to assert your self love and seep it into your mind, body and soul. Say affirmations like: I am doing my best everyday and I am proud of myself, I am strong, I am beautiful, I am grateful for what my body can do, I radiate beauty, I radiate joy, I love my natural hair, my hair enhances my beauty, My hair is healthy, strong and shiny. Try these while standing in front of the mirror to comfort and affirm it to yourself. You deserve all the love in the world and I’m rooting for you to become the best version of yourself every single day. xoxo
