Best Shower Routine + Body Care Products for Glowing Skin

0  comments

If you are wanting to build a shower routine that gives you an instant glow then this post is for you!

Below you will find a full list of glowy skin products but before we get started in to the actual products I did want to mention that I do have a couple of  steps or tips for glowing skin.

When I'm thinking I want glowing skin it's because winter is out and it's getting hot. 

So we're going to be wearing less clothes; we're probably going to be showing our sleeves, our underarms and legs so that means we gotta be a little bit less hairy.

We gotta shave.

We also want to remove that surface dry skin that we have developed probably over winter and then of course we want to smell good.

So those are the three main steps of what we're going to be shopping for and then of course if you want to add some sort of shimmer for a nice shiny look then that is an optional step.

Removing the Dead Skin

There's two types of exfoliations; a chemical exfoliation and a physical exfoliation.


Chemical Exfoliators are products that go into your skin to help you with the turnover renewal process of your skin. 


Physical exfoliations like sugar scrubs and back scrubbers help you that very moment remove all of the surface issues that you have.

 

With time exfoliating makes a huge difference so the more you do it the brighter your skin will become.

Pro Tip: Using one or both types of exfoliation are great ways to remove and heal body care issues such as Body Acne and KP.

Shower Routine Steps

This is the exact steps you should follow when implementing this glowing skin shower routine.

Step 1: Cleanse

In this step you just want to clean off the surface dirt, sweat and oils accumulated from the day. No need to go rough. A simple wash is just fine.

Step 2: Exfoliate

With your sugar scrub and back scrubber, you want to remove the dead skin. Pay special attention to your problems areas. 

Step 3: Shave

If you need to now is the time to shave. I recommend using shaving oil to get the closest shave possible while still giving your skin moisturization. 

Do Not Skip This Step

After you shave, you exfoliate for a second time. You must go in up and down motions okay not circular. This will cause ingrown hairs. Make sure you go up and down to help the skin to learn to grow out in a singular direction. 

Optional: In Shower Body Oil

In my opinion, oil is what can give you the most glow and shine out of everything in this routine. Oil is long lasting and extremely nourishing on the skin. However, if you don't like that slippery feeling, you can skip this.

Step 4: Nourishing Body Lotion

Before applying any type of fragrance lotion, add something that is nourishing to the skin. Something with a chemical exfoliant is perfect such as Lactic Acid or Salicylic Acid.

Step 5: Fragrance and Shine

Once you've done all the above, now is the time to add all of the fun products. You can go in with a second lotion that has your favorite fragrance. Another optional step is to add more oil or a shimmer.
