I don’t know about you, but my showers vary greatly day to day. The standard is probably 10 to 15 minutes of your typical shampoo, conditioner, soap situation. Sometimes it’s a literal three-minute body rinse, dodging the stream so my hair doesn’t get wet. And on the opposite end of the spectrum is a 30-minute (at least) self-care ritual that has come to be known as an “everything shower,” or an elevated shower routine.
An “everything shower” is pretty self-explanatory, although the exact meaning can vary from person to person — it’s a shower where you do literally everything there is to do to clean and pamper yourself, an elevated version of your typical shower. A DIY spa session, if you will. There’s prep involved. (On TikTok, #everythingshower has more than 125 million views.)
My ideal “everything shower” routine begins before and continues after the actual shower. Sure, when I’m in a rush, I resent the time it takes to shave or moisturize. But when I have nowhere to be and can really go all in, it feels indulgent and relaxing and I emerge with newborn baby skin. I’m a squeaky-clean, silky-smooth seal. I sit on my couch in a cozy robe, sipping lemon water, watching reality TV and feeling fresh. It’s all part of the experience.
My ultimate dream shower consists of some products I currently use, some that have piqued my interest, and others I’ve tried in the past but wish I had permanently in stock. Let’s begin.
