If you're like us, you've probably stumbled upon the self-care side of TikTok. One trend currently piquing our interest is the luxurious shower trend known as #showertok or the “everything shower.” This is a multi-step routine that features a number of products to tackle all beauty rituals in one, long relaxing shower - the perfect form of self-care after a long day. Shaving your legs, exfoliating your skin, and indulging in a luxury shower gel will leave you looking forward to your weekly well-deserved shower routine.
While most #showertok or everything shower trends are about making time for yourself and giving yourself some much-needed TLC, many routines can be excessive. If a 10-step shower routine isn't in the cards for you, don't worry — we've got a solution. We've crafted the ideal shower routine so you can step away from endlessly scrolling and concentrate on creating a process tailored to your preferences.
Here's what you need to know:
Preparing properly before showering is important if you want to commit to the #showertok trend. With the right tips and tricks, you can revamp your everything shower routine, relax, unwind, and truly experience self-care benefits.
Exfoliating before showering is a great way to buff away dead skin cells and prepare your legs before shaving. If you exfoliate outside the shower, we recommend a gentle exfoliant like The Essence. Our 3-in-1 exfoliant, toner, and hydrating elixir is perfect for your face and beneficial for the skin on your legs. The exfoliating acids in our formula will help buff away dead skin cells on your legs, leading to more radiant skin. To apply to your legs, pour it into your palms and massage it directly into your skin before showering.
Apply a Facemask
A high-quality, nutrient-rich facemask is one of the best ways to target skin concerns and supercharge your everything shower routine. When you're ready to jump in the shower, you can rinse off the mask and commence your favorite self-care routine!
The Face Cream Mask features a silky, cream texture and is the perfect boost of hydration for all skin types. Our formulation instantly hydrates dry skin and helps eliminate premature signs of aging; consistent use will leave you with a smoother, firmer, brighter complexion. We recommend leaving it on for 8-10 minutes before washing off in the shower. During our clinical trials, participants measured their skin was 360% more radiant, and hydration was improved by 164%.
Set The Mood
#Everythingshowers are all about prioritizing you! It's about making time for yourself and your self-care rituals. Before jumping in the shower, set the mood by playing music, lighting a candle, and disconnecting from your cell phone. We promise you won't regret it.
The Perfect Shower Routine
Once you've set the mood, exfoliated your legs, and prepared your skin, it's time to kick off your #showertok routine. When honing your everything shower regimen, always keep your needs in mind. Here's how to begin:
Pamper Yourself With a Luxury Shower Gel
A luxury shower gel will leave your skin silky smooth and give you the extra boost of hydration your skin craves before you shave your legs or under arms. When searching for the best shower gel, look for hydrating ingredients and clean formulas that won't strip your skin or cause unnecessary irritation.
The Body Cleanser, our replenishing body wash formulated with coconut oil, comforting eucalyptus, and copaiba resin, cleanses, hydrates, and softens skin gently while soothing irritation and retaining skin moisture without causing any dryness. In our 12-week user-proven trials, 99% of participants reported that their skin felt purified, while 100% agreed that the scent left them feeling revitalized and relaxed.
Hydrate Your Hair with a Clinically-Proven Shampoo
Never skip your shampoo. A good quality formula should help neutralize the oils on your scalp, eliminate dandruff, and strengthen the individual hair follicles. If you aren't using a high-quality shampoo in your shower routine, you may experience excess sebum production or scalp dryness, leading to dandruff, dryness, and discomfort.
With The Shampoo, you can kick off your #everythingshower routine with a clean, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Our formula cleanses, hydrates, and moisturizes your scalp and hair, leading to a revamped appearance with impeccable luster. During our clinical trials, The Shampoo increased hydration by 84% and shine by 233%.
Replenish Your Hair and Scalp with the Right Conditioner
A high-quality shampoo is nothing without a conditioner. To improve the look and feel of your hair, prioritize your scalp health and hydrate your ends with a nutrient-rich conditioner.
Our nourishing formula, The Conditioner, helps to eliminate damage and improves moisture retention. This popular product contains an innovative blend of B5, oat kernel oil, and castor seed oil — three hair-loving superfoods packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Parched ends? You can also apply The Conditioner as a mini 5-10 minute hair mask during every shower for an extra boost of hydration. In our user trials, 100% of participants agreed that their hair felt nourished after use.
After Showering, Treat Yourself
Once you've achieved a sense of relaxation, you should proceed with a post- everything shower routine. Here's how to continue it outside of the shower.
Strengthen Your Hair with the Leave-In Hair Treatment
A leave-in hair treatment is an excellent add-in post #everythingshower. Whether you're struggling with dryness or want to treat your hair to some extra TLC, a leave-in hair treatment is perfect.
The Leave-In Hair Treatment replenishes, strengthens, and softens strands - think of it as a moisturizer for your hair. Not only is it ultra-hydrating, it can also reduce breakage and improve past damage. Participants in our 12-week clinical trials said The Leave-In Hair Treatment increased hair shine by 330% and hair smoothness by 185%.
Rejuvenate Your Scalp With a Scalp Treatment
A scalp treatment can help eliminate product buildup and dead skin cells from your scalp. Without a scalp treatment, the hair follicle can become clogged leading to irritation and inflammation.
The Scalp Treatment, our innovative serum formulated with nourishing and renewing actives, helps to stimulate natural growth, reduce shedding, restore your scalp's natural pH balance, and protect against environmental stressors. During our 12-week user trials, 95% reported reduced scalp dryness, and 94% indicated that their hair felt stronger.
Lock-in All Day Moisturization
Applying moisturizer after showering is essential to retaining moisture, preventing dryness, and safeguarding your skin barrier. Skipping this step after exfoliating and shaving can result in dryness and discomfort. Therefore, we recommend applying a body moisturizer or oil to damp skin for improved absorption, leaving you with the soft, supple skin you desire as part of your #everythingshower routine.
We recommend applying The Body Cream, our thick, ultra-nourishing moisturizer with hydrating botanicals and a multitasking moisture complex. This clinically proven formula will promote healthy barrier function and help you achieve smooth more even-toned, supple skin with every use. In our 12-week user trials, 100% of participants agreed that The Body Cream left their skin intensely moisturized and hydrated, while 98% agreed it protected against rough, dry patches and chapped skin.
