My Hygiene Routine

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

I have to keep reminding myself that this is a lifestyle blog as well and not just a beauty/makeup blog. So with that said, I wanted to share with you my favorite products hygiene wise. These are products I use in the shower on a daily basis. I'm not going to focus on what I use to clean off my makeup because I'm saving that up for another post! So here we go!

 If you know me, I take my teeth very seriously. I use the Colgate Advanced Whitening Toothpaste on a soft bristled toothbrush twice a day. I use the Listerine Cool Mint Mouthwash after brushing and flossing. I floss every night using the Oral-B Glide Floss.
So to clean myself in the shower I use Dial Yellow Bar Soap. I find that this cleans off all the dirt and oil that accumulate on my skin. I don't think it contains fragrance so it doesn't irritate skin. With that said it has a very clean scent that wont conflict with your perfume later on. It is also the best (for me) to use "down there", because it gets rid off any feminine oder. By the way, I use a washcloth because it cleans my body the best. 

After I use the Yellow Bar Soap, I love to use the Bath and Body Works Shower Gel in 'Paris Amour'. Bath and Body Works has millions (not really millions) of scents to choose from. I love the Paris Amour scent collection because of its glamorous rosy scent. I use the shower gel after the yellow soap to add a bit of fragrance to my skin. I don't use this "down there" because its fragrance can throw off the pH balance. This also adds moisture to my skin.
After my shower in the morning I use the Bath and Body Works Body Lotion in 'Paris Amour' all over. As I said above, I love the scent. It is pretty moisturizing too so it is the perfect body lotion. I get so many compliments when I wear the lotion. 

After my shower at night I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil, yes. All over my skin. I like to apply this when my skin is still damp so the Olive Oil isn't too think on the skin. This is a great moisturizer to keep the skin soft with out much fragrance to annoy me when I'm trying to sleep. 

For deodorant I use Arm and Hammer's Essentials Natural Deodorant. This is an amazing deodorant to use because it is made with a natural (without parabens or aluminum) formula. It contains baking soda to keep odor at bay and has a clean fresh scent. After trying this, I will never use another brand. 
I think that's it for my hygiene routine. I hope this helped any of you who need recommendations when it comes to this.
