I've talked a little bit about this on my blog...but here it is.

PRE SHOWER ROUTINE

- if i need to shave my underarms, i do it before the shower (PRO TIP, it prevents getting cut etc because the skin is dry and it's easier)

SHOWER ROUTINE

- the order is: shampoo (change between head and shoulders and a different shampoo to prevent regular amounts of dandruff and give hair a change), condition and leave it in whilst washing body (sometimes with loofah) and then wash body and hair out, and then i rinse my *cough* (very important that you do this every time you shower to prevent bacteria etc)

POST SHOWER ROUTINE:

-deodorize (gives it time to dry if you do it first. i use roll on.)
- moisturise my face (it gets dried up by the shower! don't want prem wrinkling)
- moisturise my elbows and knees (first places to have signs of ageing)
- put my everyday jewellery on (fitbit, small hoop earrings, name necklace)
- spray leave in conditioner detangler in my hair
- brush out my hair (i use a paddle brush unfortunately....don't have time for the wide tooth comb! oop)
- put my clothes on (bottoms on last....again, you don't want any kind of bad bacteria or infection from dampness)

i know it sounds a little extensive but i've had more time now in quarantine to take more steps to look after myself. i'm also in a routine so all of this happens in about a 20 minute time slot - i only take 10 minutes to shower.

what's yours?

I don't overthink it. Canonball into a mud puddle. If there's no puddle, I just have to cope without it.

Pre Shower:
• Epilate underarms and legs. Wax bikini area.

Shower Routine:
• Shampoo hair using Bed Head Shampoo - I alternate it with Kerastase (both for blonde hair)
• Rinse thoroughly and repeat
• I apply conditioner and then use a tooth comb to ensure it’s coated my hair well. Use hair clip to tie into loose knot.
• Use loofa to exfoliate body with body wash. I use a foot file if I need to.
• Rinse everything inc conditioned hair

Post Shower:
• Apply body cream straight onto damp skin and moisturise
• Apply hair products and blow dry then straighten hair
• Apply skincare products

Man it’s exhausting being a girl :lol: however usually if I’m having a shower before work I skip steps i.e pre shower

lol okay u asked for it :ahee:

pre-shower
- epilate & wax wherever necessary (sugar wax works)
- get the music blasting

in the shower
- shampoo my hair
- do little dance (NOT recommended, u may slip and die)
- rinse out shampoo, then shampoo once more
- second round of shampooing, i wash my face and brush my teeth
- rinse out shampoo
- get the conditioner going.
- whilst that's on (dyed hair is dry af), apply bath gel and exfoliate the skin
(last three steps only apply if u gotta shave:
- grab random hair mask and apply on hair
- shave (takes friggin forever)
- lastly, enjoy ur skin, soft like a baby's bum)

post shower
- apply sunscreen / face creams
- moisturize skin
- lounge around my hut in towels

this shiz takes ∞, give or take some steps depending on necessity and also depending on which song is on (leaving Bon Jovi singing by himself is sacrilege)

I get in the shower, wet my hair, put my face wash on, then shampoo, then shower gel .. and wash them off in the same order. If I'm shaving I have a bath instead as there's no room in the shower. Then I stand under the water for ages contemplating life, then get out and go and sit on my bed in a towel contemplating life some more, but also browsing social media. Usually until my partner sends out a search party for me. Honestly, I love my shower time!

pre-shower:
i just brush out my hair so there's no knots in it before i wash it
shower:
first thing i do is just wash my body with water
and then i'll put in my shampoo and just massage that into my hair. then i'll wash it out
after that i'll put conditioner in and i'll leave that in for about two minutes. i'll just apply some shower gel and soap and i'll shave if necessary. i sometimes also use a face scrub but it depends
then i'll wash the conditioner and soap off and dry my body and get out the shower (:
post-shower:
after i get out the shower i'll spray some deodorant and moisture my body. then i'll brush my hair out again and put my clothes on. after that i'll just spray my body spray and perfume and im done (:

Take my clothes off, get in the shower, wash my hair and body, get out of the shower, put some clothes on.
Drying yourself in between is probably a good idea, no?
