Between working a full business day, getting my fitness fix, and winding down in the evenings with my significant other, the quietest, most private moment of my day is when I'm in the shower. Using Skintimate's all-new sense-drenching body-care collection (my favorite is the Bloom line), I turn my shower into a relaxing oasis where I can collect my thoughts and focus on how I'm feeling and why. The Bloom collection features daydreamy notes of rose, lotus, and sandalwood, which instantly helps me feel calm and leaves my skin supersoft.
To get the most out of my experience, I listen to one of the three custom mindful shower meditations developed by Skintimate with expert Shauna Shapiro, PhD. Each meditation is based off your mood and the kind of energy you're looking to cultivate. Whether I want to feel relaxed and grounded or more energized, each meditation is designed to be paired with a specific scent to heighten your experience.
Consisting of body wash, shave gel, body butter, and more, the Bloom collection pairs with the "Boost Your Confidence" meditation. I listen to this one for a feel-good burst of self-love and strength. Dr. Shapiro advises filling your bathroom with natural light and fresh air and thinking of the shower as a place of safety and nourishment. Before you get started, try setting an intention for compassion and relaxation. After I've completed the eight-and-a-half minute meditation, I feel an instant sense of peace and empowerment.
