The ‘Everything Shower’ has long been a staple in our weekly routines, but 2024 has ushered in a new era of self-care with the rise of the Everything Bath. This elevated cleansing ritual has taken the internet by storm, especially on TikTok, where a viral video has captivated millions with its transformative effects.
In a TikTok that accumulated an astounding 5.5 million views, a creator shared her secret to achieving the ultimate in cleanliness and relaxation. The star of the show? Our very own Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile bar soap. According to the enthusiastic creator, using this soap for a hardcore exfoliation is the key to a deep cleanse that will leave you feeling like you’re “on cloud nine.”
The TikTok sensation claims that this method not only removes layers of dead skin but also eliminates build-up from body washes and lotions, reducing the dreaded “strawberry skin” and improving overall skin texture. The video concludes with a bath filled with the remnants of shed dead skin, making this exfoliation technique the ultimate method for removing stubborn dry skin.
To help you recreate this indulgent self-care ritual at home, we’ve compiled a step-by-step guide:
Step 1 – Bring the Hammam to You:
Instead of heading to a spa, the creator recommends creating your own Turkish ‘Hammam’ experience at home. Heat your bathroom to a steamy temperature using a little heater, ensuring to turn it off before entering the bath or shower.
Step 2 – Soak in Pure Bliss:
Fill your bathtub with hot water—just water, no additives. Allow yourself to soak for a generous 20-30 minutes before introducing any oils or body products.
Step 3 – Exfoliate with Gusto:
Begin the exfoliation process by using an exfoliation glove on your body.
Step 4 – Dr. Bronner’s Magic Touch:
After exfoliating, wash your body with any Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile bar soap of your choice, using a loofah for an added touch. Our favourite is the Rose scent, as it is perfect for calming redness and soothing the skin.
Step 5 – Complete Your Routine:
Finish off the pampering session by going through the rest of your hair and body routine as usual.
This Everything Bath experience, fuelled by our bar soaps, is not just a trend; it’s a game-changer in the realm of self-care. Try it for yourself and discover a new level of cleanliness, relaxation, and rejuvenation right in the comfort of your own home. After all, as the creator wisely puts it, “It’s one of those things that once you do it, you can’t not do it.” So, why not treat yourself to the ultimate Everything Bath today? Your skin will thank you!
