If you’re like most people, showering or bathing is a daily routine that usually consists of shower gel and shampoo. However, there are many other items in the bathroom that could be used to make your shower more relaxing. One key item to include is heaters. These tips can help increase comfort during shower time by adding soothing warmth without drying out the skin with excessively hot water use.
Add a bath mat for comfort
A shower mat not only prevents slipping but also offers comfort and support for the feet when you step out of the shower or tub onto a cold bathroom floor. Primarily, it’s important that the water heaters system works well. Consider adding two mats side by side rather than one long mat so that your legs are covered from the front all the way up to around mid-thigh as well. If you have an older shower with chipped tiles or corroded grout, consider updating them before taking a shower and risk cutting yourself on rough surfaces while barefoot in wet conditions.
If this isn’t possible because of budget constraints, look into alternatives such as sealants that can protect existing tile work until money allows replacement later on.
Add a few drops of lavender or peppermint essential oil to the water
These essential oils are known for their relaxing properties. Lavender oil can be found in shower gels, scented lotions, and body sprays, while peppermint is commonly used in shampoo and shower gel form as well.
The next time you want to turn up the heat on your shower routine, think about these tips first!
Adding a few simple items that will help make showering more comfortable before stepping out of the shower with skin that feels renewed rather than red and irritated from overly hot water use or standing barefoot on cold floors in wet conditions. Using products with lavender or peppermint essential oils added into them can also provide additional benefits, such as promoting relaxation after long days at work when all you really want to do is wind down and get ready for sleep.
Install a showerhead that has multiple settings, including “massage” and “pulse”
A shower head that has multiple settings can provide an invigorating showering experience, as well as a relaxing shower at the end of a long day.
That is because shower heads with “massage” and/or “pulse” settings provide water pressure that can help soothe aching muscles. In addition, showering for long periods of time is something to avoid since it can dry out the skin. Instead, focus on keeping your showers short but sweet while still getting clean by using shower gels or body washes designed specifically for quick yet effective cleansing without drying everything out.
Hang up your towel in order to save time when you get out of the shower/bathtub
Even if you shower or bathe in the morning, it’s a good idea to hang your towel up by using an over-the-door shower caddy instead of leaving it on the floor where it can easily get wet. Doing this makes getting dressed easier and doesn’t require additional time when cleaning after showering as well.
If you’re not sure what kind of shower caddy would be best for holding towels and other items while showering, look into options that are rustproof so they don’t damage bathroom walls with water spots from condensation forming as steam rises off showers during use.
Put on some calming music while you’re bathing/showering
This will help make it more relaxing and enjoyable while showering, which can help you get the most out of your daily shower.
Adding calming music during bath/shower times provides people with more benefits than just keeping the shower itself relaxing. Listening to music while in the shower makes it easier for people to focus on other activities, such as reading a book or even catching up with friends and family members who are showering at different times during the day but still want some time alone before getting ready to start their days.
Use mild soaps and shampoos instead of harsh ones
Harsh, heavily perfumed shower gels and shampoos can wreak havoc on sensitive skin.
Instead of using soap or shampoo that is scented with heavy undertones such as lavender or peppermint oil to promote relaxation after showering, opt for milder soaps and shampoos instead since they are gentler on the skin but still effective at cleaning it without drying out certain areas like your face in a negative way.
This doesn’t mean you should just use bar soap since even those come in several different varieties based on their strengths when cleansing while showering.
It’s easy to make your bath or shower more relaxing. These are just a few of the ways you can make your bath or shower more relaxing. They’ll leave you feeling refreshed and ready for anything!
