How I Take An Eco-Friendly 'Everything Shower'
I have a fairly extensive routine (using all Parrotfish products) and still keep my everything showers around 10-15 minutes max.
Before my everything shower even starts, I put a shower steamer on my shower floor in a place that avoids the direct flow of the stream. Because I'm usually a nighttime shower-taker, the Chamomile Blossom Shower Steamer is my favorite – it's the perfect combination of scents to unwind. However, if you're a morning shower-taker and want a citrusy scent to wake you up, in that case, we have the Pomelo Posy Shower Steamer, or if you have sinuses and need something to alleviate congestion, our Eucalyptus Tea Tree Shower Steamer is perfect.
I start with my Argan Shampoo Bar, and after shampooing, I rub the conditioner bar on my hair and use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the product. I love to comb my hair (whether it be solid or liquid conditioner) while I'm in the shower to detangle my strands.
Before using one of Parrotfish's soaps to clean my body, I will always lightly exfoliate using our Coffee Clementine Exfoliant. I'm prone to acne and inflammation under my armpits (where my sports bra sits) and on my bottom. Exfoliating these areas help remove dead skin cells and dirt that could contribute to clogged follicles from sweat after a workout. My Coffee Clementine Exfoliant is one of the bars I can't be without.
Next, I will wash my body with my Rosemary Apple Cider Soap Bar (it's my husband's favorite, so it's always in our shower!). Our soaps are extra moisturizing with ingredients such as olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter – so using one of these bars after exfoliating will help nourish your skin.
Lastly, I wash my face with our Lavender Teak Soap Bar. It contains activated charcoal, which helps combat oils. It also has calendula petals to provide a gentle exfoliant, and the essential oil combination has antibacterial properties to help reduce redness, wrinkles and other signs of aging, making this a perfect bar for your face.
After I'm done with my shampoo, conditioner, exfoliant, body soap, and face wash – my shower steamer is just about finished, acting as an hourglass to let you know your everything shower has come to an end.
