1) Give yourself an extra 5 – 10 minutes for your shower routine

Wake up 5 – 10 minutes earlier in the morning if your shower is part of your morning routine. You’ll be amazed at how having a less rushed, more relaxed shower routine adds a feeling of luxury, whether it’s adding that extra time to pre shower, in shower or post shower. And if you have an evening shower, give yourself an extra 5 or 10 minutes as well.

If you find getting up earlier is tough then keep a glass of water at your bedside table and drink that as soon as you wake up. Hydration increases energy levels. Or do a few mild stretches to get your blood flowing while you’re waiting for the water to warm up.

2) Add Seasonal Scents to your showers

Shower steamers, essential oils, scented body washes, sprays and lotions all add to a luxurious shower routine and evoke a spa feel. Enjoying some bright citrusy scents is a really quick way to give yourself a little mood boost. You can have fun mixing and matching scents like lemon, orange, lime, and tangerine and feel a little hint of the summer season.

Balsam fir, cedar, peppermint or cranberry for winter scents. Consider hanging eucalyptus or other botanicals and herbs, such as rosemary or mint leaves where the shower steam can release their scents.

Cinnamon, apple, pumpkin spice and rosemary for autumn scents and spring scents such as lemon, and florals like rose and lavender.

3) Invest in a good quality shower head.

A rainfall shower head allows your body to be doused with water and creates a rain shower that feels incredibly luxurious.

Enjoy a wonderful shower with a shower head that offers a variety of spray settings that provide different shower experiences.

Have two shower heads, with a detachable wall mounted sprayer as the second.

The lights in this shower head let you know if the water temperature is safe for your skin. If the light is red (especially flashing red), the water is too hot, if it is blue, it is warm and still safe for your skin, but if it is green then it is cooler and a great temperature for your skin and hair.

A water conserving shower head is great for those of us who are water conscious and want to help keep those water costs down.

4)Add Easy and Luxurious Shower Accessories

Elevate your showers with self care gifts such as a shower foot massager that gently massages your feet and improves circulation. Or try a scalp massager that stimulates blood flow to the scalp. You’ll love the feel of luxury towels made of 100% Turkish cotton, and swap out your old, tired bath mat for a new one, and let your toes sink into a comfy and cozy luxurious bathroom mat.

One of my favorite luxury shower routine things to do is have a warm towel or bathrobe waiting for me after my showers.

5) Self Care Before your Shower

Give yourself a special treatment such as a deep pore facial cleansing mask or an olive oil fingernail or toenail soak. Make sure to have time blocked off for your shower, whether waiting until after the kids are in bed, or before everyone else is awake in the morning, or during the day if it’s less busy.

6) Turn down the lights

Dimming the lights starts the process of soothing our senses and creating a feeling of calmness and peace that helps you to focus on the experience at hand.

7) Give yourself a scalp massage

The ideal time to massage your scalp is while you’re in the shower.

8) Brush hair when wet, before shampoo

You don’t want to ruin a luxury shower experience with having to fight with hair tangles and the discomfort that brings. As well as using a hair conditioner after shampooing, brushing or combing your hair at the right time is important.

The best moment to untangle hair is before using shampoo, on wet hair. It makes the time after your shower that much more pleasant when you don’t have to fight with knots and tangles in your hair.

Another way to add to your luxurious shower experience is to add decorative touches to your bathroom. Whether that be through body brushes, soaps, and beauty products displayed in a creative way, or beautiful and soothing artwork, or whatever is meaningful and brings pleasure to you.

Also, maintaining a clean bathroom that is clutter free creates an atmosphere that makes a huge difference. Showering in a clean space promotes relaxation and more enjoyment.
