We are all very aware today, that having good hygiene promotes health. What you might be surprised to learn is that Australians spend about $29 per week on hygiene products.
Personal care products like a body wash or moisturiser keep your skin healthy. But what if you want to take it to the next level and introduce a few luxury items into your routine? How can you take your daily shower and turn it into your own personal spa-like experience?
Let us offer you seven luxury shower products that can take you from a regular shower to revitalizing spa!
1. Body Wash
Choosing a body wash to enhance your shower experience is a very personal decision that comes down to scents and texture, we recommend the main focus be on the ingredients and how they nourish your skin.
You want to look for gentle ingredients or an organic / natural body wash that maintains your skin's natural oil balance and refrains from drying it out. It should also have the ability to wash away dirt and grime, leaving you clean and refreshed.
The scent of your body wash is also important because it can relax you and generally improve your mood!
Pamper yourself with exfoliation, a weekly recommended ritual to maintain a youthful glow! Exfoliation is the act of gently removing the dead skin cells that accumulate on top layer of your skin. This prevents a flaking and dull appearance, leaving your skin glowing while improving the hydrating benefits of your moisturisers.
You can exfoliate your face and body, concentrating on rough places like elbows, knees, and the bottoms of feet. It's recommended that we exfoliate 2-3 times a week, otherwise, you may dehydrate skin or cause irritation.
3. Hand Soap
While you might not think of hand soap as a luxury spa product, the right kind of hand soap is important in ensuring germs and debris are properly removed, and that the skin on your hands stays healthy as well. Your hands can be prone to drying out if you don't use the right type of hand wash or you wash too frequently with stripping formulations.
Look for hand soaps that have plant-based and moisturising ingredients that don't strip your skin's oils.
Sulphates are present in many shampoos, but they can be toxic to the body and your hair. While they aid in creating a lathering effect, they also take all your hair's oils as you rinse. Sulphates also cause damage to hair that's colour-treated, causing it to fade quickly.
When you're shampooing your hair, you want to choose products that cleanse and hydrate your hair and are sulphate-free.
After shampooing your hair and ensuring it's clean, a normal conditioner should do the trick to seal in moisture and keep your hair free from tangles. Like your shampoo, look for ingredients that put moisture into your hair while maintaining volume without weighing it down. A great conditioner will leave your hair looking shiny and new—one that you can't wait to use over and over again!
Facial and body masks are an important part of the pampering process. They help draw out impurities in your skin that your facial/body wash may have missed. They also can rejuvenate and repair skin damage when used regularly.
The frequency of using a facial or body mask will vary for everyone due to skin type and the skin challenges you're facing. Generally speaking, you'll want to use a mask 1-3 times per week.
7. Micellar Water
Did you know that you can even pamper your face while you're on the go? With micellar water, you can achieve healthy skin and have a luxurious experience anywhere—especially if you're living a busy life!
Micellar water consists of oil molecules in water that combats bacteria, removes dirt and other debris, while leaving your skin feeling cool, clean, and moisturised. Don't worry if you don't have time to pamper fully—micellular water will do the trick for you!
8. Hand and Body Cream
After washing your skin, you'll want to use a hand or body cream. This ensures that your skin is getting the essential nutrients and moisture replenishment it needs to stay healthy. Daily moisture is lost simply going about your natural schedule, or when experiencing increased stress levels, when exercising frequently, when showering or bathing. When you use a lotion or cream, it seals moisture in and replaces the moisture that was lost.
Skin that's dehydrated has a better chance of cracking or drying out. When skin is dry, it's more susceptible to infections. The cherry on top, moisturising lotions leave you smelling fabulous as well!
Your skin is the largest organ, so what you put on, matters. Your skin absorbs nearly everything that you apply to it and your body will react. This is why it's so important to use natural, organic, and locally-made formulations in any personal care product.
You want to look for ingredients that are plant-based and natural, containing gentle essential oils it any aroma oils at all. At LaGaia, the focus is on providing the most high-quality, bio-available and beneficial natural products that nourish the body, providing a luxurious experience every time you use them.
