This Is How We Do.
Hello. Hello. It's both of our dinner with me to the naked Beauty podcast. Today's episode is all about how to upgrade your shower experience. I love a good long shower and I'm also looking for ways to optimize my shower. Now, I mention this in the episode but I live in an apartment. I live in New York City and I don't have one of these big luxurious bath tubs to be quite honest with you. Like we have one very small bathtub downstairs. I cannot remember the last time I took a bath there, and I really I just said downstairs, which is confusing because I live in an apartment, but it's like a it's like a two-level like a little duplex situation. So we had a shower situation that also is a bath in the guest bathroom. But yeah, I am always looking for ways to improve my shower experience because I don't have a bad. So whenever people do like poster cars or talk about self-care, they're always looks Jerry dating. And lodging in this like big, gorgeous bathtub with bubbles and I can't relate, it's not my experience so shower.
Show me all the time. And as I said, I love a good shower and anything that you love, you can always upgrade. You can always optimize. So I asked three amazing women that I had on the podcast how they upgrade the shower experience. First, I talk to Ava. She is the founder of China haunted Beauty, which, you know, we love that. I talk to British. He's one of the co-founders of Wild Wings Beauty, but she's also a holistic esthetician, and I also talked to Charlotte Palomino. She gives great tips on how she upgrades her shower experience that she uses in her hair. All amazing. Women all great ships. I guess I will pause now and stay with some of my Subs are for upgrading your shower experience. So obviously, what you're washing your body with sets a really big tone in terms of a shower routine. So I love soaps. I'm really trying hard not to use body wash, necessaire, sent me. A bunch of body washes and a body polish and they were nice. But I'm really trying to use soap because it's better for the environment has less water, use and the packaging is usually more sustainable. So for scopes,
You want to support an amazing black owned, Jean company redo is amazing, redoux. They have some of the best soaps I have ever tried. The founder. Asia is like such a Visionary, love that product. I think they want one of the glossy a grants as well. But just really, really, really great. So which I only meant to say it's for like, they're cleaning products. But they also have incredible bar. Soaps saje, love their soap. So get a good soap. I think that makes a big difference. A good body polish. I like live for a body polish in the shower and sometimes what I do is I add soap to my homemade DIY brown sugar scrub. So, I'll add a little bit of the Castile soap, like I used to dr. Bronner's, and I added to the scrubs, as I'm like, scrubbing in exploiting. I'm also cleaning my body was like, I love, but right now, my body polish and also using a great body polish from milk and honey. So milk and honey makes a great body polish. I use their lemon and vanilla one, it smells so good.
Very very, very critical of body polish is like, I don't think any sense commercial body scrubs are good because I make my own and I really like that one. If you're a DIY clean like me and you want to make your own body polish. I will stay here is a big tip. I used two different types of experience all do like other like a white sugar and a brown sugar, I find sea salt to be a little too coarse for my personal taste, but I think it's not just about adding in oils, I add with shea butter. Now I make my own whipped shea butter which is like hard core, but you can also just take an existing store-bought, shea butter mix that with your brown sugar or white sugar in your oils and it's such a gorgeous texture and then if you want his add in that second layer of fragrant, just find great essential oils. I love Sandalwood, I love Rose. I love lavender. I left Citrus. If I left right now. I love Tangerine. Add and your essential oils into that body scrub and it's just like so luxury and so perfect. I'm going to do a video on this, on my Instagram, naked Beauty Planet, so make sure you're following me on Instagram if you want to see the whole
Video. Okay, that's a body oil in the shower. I used to get out of the shower and apply my body oils and lotions. Now, I keep them in the shower while your skin is still as long as it's like wet, but I just like applying the oil in the shower, I find an iMac warmer in there somewhere, but I just got out of the shower and my calls and I was like what? My towel, speaking of towels have a really good towel. Now my husband's Turkish but you guys know I love Turkish towels. I think turkey makes the best towel so it do a search for good. Turkish towels. I like a large towel, I don't want to feel to have a skimpy little how I like a towel with some surface area, that's very soft. I also tend not to buy white towels. I think people love to look up like she quite towels. But for me personally, as a makeup where I just like I always get them dirty and it's just like never the same good white. So I do like a like a light blue towel or like a great hell which is like neutral and is very cheap and almost done with my list a good REI.
Now, I used to buy store-bought razors. I used to be like a Venus razor girl. I love Flamingo, razors. I think Flamingo has a really great razor. Is it comes to the shaving cream, but you can use whatever shaving cream. I don't think it's that important but I think Flamingo has such a nice razor. I really like it and I think I even though I'm not some of that, shaves often I shaved like every 6 weeks to be very honest, but when I do, it's nice to have a really nice razor that leaves you with a very smooth, close shave and a candlelit shower. Now, I did this once on New Year's Eve, I did with my husband and it was really fun. We turned on all of the lights, we let a bunch of candles in the bathroom. And we took like a candlelit shower, which was really loves late. One of my guests Maya Allen described as this is something that she does and she absolutely loves doing just turning off the lights. I turn your lights down low putting on like a sexy playlist, lighting candles and like going into a shower. I can't lie and say that do that often. I did it one time, but it was great when I did it. So take that with you.

And I'm asking $2 because living in New York City. I don't have like one of those big luxurious that's that. People have great for you to have them but like, I want to know, how do you make your shower experience at a premium incredible experience but it takes me time for my shower. So trying to get all your things together. While your shower is heating up at 11 dirt and or eucalyptus and or tea tree in the shower, close the shower right after I let the steam Vibes. Yes, if you smoke, marijuana light up,
The time when you light up, before you go in the shower because you are here for the driver, okay? Do I need to get into the shower?

All legs, back neck fat, all the things went. Okay, obviously when you shine turn the shower on.
Open yourself. You turn your shower off cuz it's like, oh my God. Okay, I'm bad for the environment.
And so I can just really go in and also I think always have a good shower playlist or a good podcast. I listen to a podcast, I listen to in the shower at the receipts podcast. I listen to you. How do you love, how do you listen in the shower with a speaker speaker? Outside? I have been known to bring my iPhone into the shower and it's caused speaker damage in there and then I have everything else. Okay, okay. Now I wash my face first, so that I can keep it on and then rinse off at that. Cuz I was like a black and brown stove or I use Clear. I love them. Do you spell horse?

So now we're in the shower so after you done like you in there get it as hot as you can take it. Don't get your face in it. Super hot shower because you don't want to talk with broken. Capillaries. Get it as hot as it is reputed. Stealing stay another 4 minutes, then turn it all the way cold baby. Get it. Nice and chilly and psyllium goes before turning off and get under there.

I will try tomorrow morning and last but not least, he has Charlotte. Charlotte is one of the founders of juice skin and just a skincare, Fairy Godmother and she likes to call herself and I love her tips as well. She also gets into a little bit of hair care which is a Seer from Charlotte. I want to know when you would like to have the time but there's like a Saturday afternoon in your life. I wanted to talk like a banging shower, like I just want to have the shower of my dream, but if they create the most ideal shower environment,
Back situation, it is a standing situation, only right? It's like we're in the, I don't know, like, boarding school, or whatever. Like I always, get a candle situation. Going because candles smell amazing, you're beautiful. And I absolutely love handles and make everybody has a set of witch candles. Do you like? So I've been really into Preston Conrad pressing Conrad homes handles. I think they're really good. I think they're good for the price and also like, I love like standall Woody's son. But Sandalwood sourcing can be a little bit off by Mike. For me, is like looking into that, looks like pretty important and then other way and acts like they have good ones as well or is totally local spots. Like, I'm a very big proponent of just like shopping around me and like to have a cup.
The next thing I do is I might leave the shower on a little bit and I know it's wasteful and I'm very sorry about the water but I'll leave it on super hot. But you can't I can't actually because I have rosacea prone skin in terms of water but I love looking like a little lobster on my way out of the shower but it is so bad for my skin but I can still get like a little bit of that, right? Like that's really what I want and then I always do. I mean really into bikes crumbs for my hair, like for my scalp like salt scrubs with in it. So I actually sometimes I'll put and I will grab my own self and I love that. And then I actually use of the product, but I always flatter myself and their eucalyptus, shea butter after a shower and I love to spread bars. What shampoo and conditioner? Do you use because you have beautiful hair?
Thank you. I've been using brown briogeo, a lot and the scent is made my hair about once a week. I don't want nothing in high school and all my friends, I or not anymore. I don't know where the, where the where it lies, but I'm not going to lie. I love the goop, like scalp scrub. Like there are scouts come shampoo, but you can also just put salt in your shampoo. Okay, I love all the shower. Just thank you so much. Always
All right, so therefore all of their tips you guys feel inspired, you guys just feel like you want to jump into a shower right now because listening to that, I cannot wait for my next shower. I'm actually like actively anticipating it. I forgot to tips in my insurance. I'll just, you know I might Pass Trail a shower filter. So Trinity who is the founder of gold came on the podcast and she said, getting a shower filter is a game-changer and it's likely the huge difference in like the help of her natural hair. I did get a shower filter, it's not in my shower upstairs. It's in that shower downstairs. We missed you. So I get to use it every so often and I really like my shower filter. That's great. And then face mask, sometimes, I don't like sitting around with a face mask on. So, what I'll do is I'll put a face mask on before I get into the shower and then I'll rinse it off when I'm out or at the end of my shower and turn the temperature down because really hot water is not great for your face. Also guys that rose water shower ideas that David and I had at the start of this episode.
I think we're on to something but still let me know. Maybe, maybe we're just doing too much and thinking, too much, but I think it's a great idea. I also absolutely did not know that you're supposed to turn the shower off, as you are soaking yourself down. So, I learned a lot this episode. I hope you guys did to thank you so much for listening. I'll be back next week. We can you ask for
