The self-care movement has shown us that it’s okay — in fact, it’s necessary — to take the time to do something for ourselves. So while you may jump in and out of the shower before rushing off to fulfill your obligations, every once in a while we encourage you to give yourself and your skin some extra TLC. With with a few easy shower hacks, you can give your skin the boost it needs to leave you with a glowing countenance. Here’s how:
Step 1: Turn up the heat, but not too much. Steam can loosen dead skin, dirt and debris, allowing you to easily swipe it away. However, water that’s too hot can damage your skin. Use a mildly hot temperature in the shower to prep your skin for the steps to follow.
Step 2: Add askin-loving essential oil or blend to your body wash. Might we suggestCellulite orSoothe & Smooth? Nourishing EOs will give your cleanser a boost while providing your skin the extraoomph it deserves. We recommend using 3 drops of essential oil per tablespoon of body wash (depending on how much you’ll use). Use your EO-infused body wash within the week.
Step 3: After washing and rinsing, take any of our Bath Salts and apply to wet skin. Allow the Bath Salt to sit on your skin, undisturbed, for a few minutes. Then, scrub the Bath Salt into your skin to exfoliate lingering debris.Step 4: EG’sBody Oil collection is a skin shave-ior. Use any Body Oil (orCarrier Oil) to soften arm and leg hair, then shave it away. After shaving and showering, your skin will remain moisturized and nourished following pat drying. The payoff will be noticeably glowing, brighter skin.
