We know sometimes you may just want to hop in and out of the shower, but shower time is the perfect time for BEAUTY, so you should be taking full advantage! To help you use your time efficiently and make sure you are getting the most out of your shower, we’ve come up with some tips and steps for your shower routine!
After you’ve jumped in the shower and have had a little time to let the water hit you from head to toe and relax, the first thing to do is wash and condition your hair.
While waiting for the conditioner to work, use this time to do an all over body exfoliation, like with Repêchage Sea Spa Glow Natural Exfoliator, to slough off dead skin cells and keep your skin refreshed. Also, make sure to incorporate a deep conditioning mask like the Repêchage Hair Spa Seaweed Mask, in place of your normal conditioner, at least 2 times a week. If you’re one to color your hair or blow dry and straighten often, a 10-minute deep conditioning treatment is a must! This hydrating seaweed mask will help to repair stressed-out tresses, and strengthen damaged and chemically treated hair (while also protecting it from further damage!).
Now you’re probably wondering, what about your face? If you’ve been in the routine of washing your face first or during one of these steps, its time to kick that habit. Between the chemicals and substances from your shampoo and conditioner you want to use your cleanser last to remove any residue from product that may be on there. Proceed with a gentle mask, such as the One-Minute Exfoliating Mask, to exfoliate your face. The steam in the shower will soften the skin and enhance for an even deeper cleanse and exfoliation. Follow with a soap free gel that cleanses naturally, such as Repêchage Sea Spa Body Wash, for your entire body. Just like your face, you should wash your body last to clean off any residue, especially from shaving. If you have some shaving to do, make sure a body wash comes afterwards (not before!)
Lastly, after getting out make sure to apply an all over body cream, such as Repêchage Vita Cura® Triple Action Body Soufflé with super rich and moisturizing ingredients like African Mafura Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Mango Seed Butter. Apply a layer of a soothing oil afterwards, such as the Repêchage Vita Cura® Triple Action Nutrí Oil that has blend of exotic oils to give your skin extra moisture and a beautiful sheen finish. If you’ve been in the sun, this is also great to help seal moisture and provide après soleil relief! For areas that need extra intense moisturization, such as elbows, knees, feet, and a sun damaged décolleté, a richer and thicker cream like the Repêchage Vita Cura® Triple Action Nutrí Créme will help to alleviate that dryness and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Hot showers will dry out your skin, so if your turning up the temperature, make sure to moisturize from head to toe afterwards!
