Having a routine is not always a bad thing. Especially, with Olay’s new Foaming Whip Body Wash (find out why below). You can get a lot out of your shower when you establish steps that not only leave you with glowing skin, but can make the process enjoyable. Here are my favorite steps to the perfect shower:
Set the mood! Putting on some relaxing music before bed, or fierce music before going out on the town can set the tone for your activity.
Get The Right Temperature
Who else is guilty of loving scorching hot showers? Unfortunately, hot showers are not the best for you because, they strip your skin of its natural oils which can lead to dryness and irritation. Setting the water in between cold and warm will open up your pores and remain pleasant to the touch.
Nothing says millennial like maximizing your time. Take the time to add a facial or deep hair mask before you lather and/or exfoliate. The steam from the shower will open up your pores and allow the nutrients from your deep conditioner and/or face mask to penetrate way past beneath the surface.
Lather in Luxury
It is extremely important to not only choose a body wash that feels great, but also that takes care of your skin. That is why I have been loving Olay’s new Foaming Whip Body Wash. It’s lush lather and weightless feel leaves my skin fresh and soft to the touch. Typical body washes become too watery once you dispense into your hand, which ultimately ends up going down the drain. The Foaming Whip Body Wash is such a rich formula that you can literally dispense it into your hand and flip the product over and it won’t fall. You may be asking, #WillItFlip? Believe me, it will! It automatically takes my routine from dull to dreamy! The body wash comes in three delectable scents: Birch Water & Lavender, White Strawberry & Mint, and Shea Butter. The Birch Water & Lavender is my favorite for a nighttime shower right before I hit the hay because the lavender scent is so soothing and relaxing.
Luxies, if you are looking to elevate your shower experience make sure to follow these steps and try Olay’s Foaming Whips Body Wash. It completely flipped my shower routine, and it’s only $4.99. You can find it at your local retailer (here) or on Olay’s website (here)
