‘Everything Shower’ is the TikTok trend that's still going viral after months.
So, what exactly is an "Everything Shower"?
If you haven’t yet heard of the infamous Everything Shower yet, don’t worry - it’s basically exactly as it sounds; It’s your chance to share your favourite in-shower self-care routine and everything that makes your shower experience amazing.
From massaging and exfoliating to masking and shaving, the Everything Shower routine can be a game-changing experience for your skincare.
The hashtag has been used by over 391 million people worldwide who are claiming that it's the new pinnacle of self-care, with some suggesting that an Everything Shower can be “better than sex.” (we'll leave that to you to decide.)
If you’re into personal grooming and love the idea of a self-love session in the shower, the sit back and relax as we show you how to take an Everything Shower.

1. Set the mood
Start your Everything Shower routine by dimming the lights and setting the mood. It's time to transform your bathroom into a personal care sanctuary in preparation for your first Everything Shower experience.
Creating a heavenly hideaway is one of the keys to unlocking a world of relaxation, rejuvenation, and most importantly, self-care.
Start by getting rid of anything lying on the bathroom floor or around surfaces, you might even want to start by giving your shower a quick scrub down so that it's fresh for you - there’s nothing like a bit of feng shui to set the mood.
Next, lower those lights and spark up your favourite scented candle. Pick a suitable Spotify Playlist that and let the soothing melodies of your favourite music perfume the air. Remember to use a waterproof speaker that can sit safely either inside or outside of the shower.
This initial step of your Everything Shower routine allows your bathroom to transform from a practical space into a personal self-care oasis.
Oh, and don’t forget to lock the door to avoid any unwanted interruptions!
2. Wash your hair
Hair washing is often the first on the Everything Shower agenda. Start by wetting your hair then lathering up with your favourite shampoo. Double shampooing seems to be a common practice in the Everything Shower trend, but it might not be necessary for you. And if you're considerate towards water usage like us, then you might like to skip the extra shampoo.
If you have a scalp massager, use this to stimulate blood flow and cleanse those roots!
Next, you can either lather on a mask and leave it to soak in while you continue on your journey, or you can skip straight to the conditioner and get into those tips.
3. Exfoliate your body
Exfoliation is a great way to leave your skin looking and feeling amazing. You only need to exfoliate once a week, or if you have sensitive skin, every other week might work better.
You can exfoliate using a body scrub or if you like a more natural feel, try a loofah to buff away those dead skin cells.
We recommend trying the Body Buff Duo by Make My Shave for a unique exfoliation experience.
This crafty combo includes a mini soap bar and an Egyptian fibre loofah. The soap bar is laced with natural ingredients including tea tree essential oil and activated charcoal particles that help absorb toxins and excess oil from the skin's surface.
To exfoliate, use gently circular motions across all areas of you body.
4. Smooth your shave areas
If you are shave positive then no Everything Shower routine would be complete without a premium shaving experience.
While shaving often feels like a chore rather than an important part of your self-care ritual, it is one of those acts that can leave you feeling refreshed and confident.
If you haven't yet tried Make My Shave, this womens razor is a game changer for any girl who loves to feel super smooth. Not only does the razor look and feel exquisite, but the 5 super-sharp vegan blades will take your skin from fuzz to flawless in seconds.
The Make My Shave razor also has a water activated Aloe Vera & Vitamin E-infused moisturising gel to support the glide and leave your skin feeling buttery smooth.

5. All Over Body Wash
Now that your skin is satin-smooth and feeling fabulous, it’s time for a final wash in all those areas you love the most.
From your head to your toes — and everything in between — use your favourite body washe or soap bar to give your beautiful body a final once over for your Everything Shower routine. This final in-shower step clears your skin of any remaining hairs, dead skin cells or products left behind.
Give yourself as much time as required, but remember to be mindful of wasting water.
6. Moisturise to finish
Even though your in-shower routine may be complete, your Everything Shower isn't finished just yet!
The grand finale is to pat down your skin with a clean dry towel before treating your body to an all-over moisturising experience.
Moisturising and hydrating your skin after a shower helps to maintain the skin's moisture balance, keeping it softer and more supple. Because long showers and shaving can leave skin feeling dry, moisturising helps to protect the skin and leave it feeling nourished.
