Have you tried an ‘Everything Shower’?

From gua sha facial massages to the ice water face plunge and putting chia seeds in everything – self-care trends and rituals that set your own standard are here to stay.

One viral TikTok wellness trend we can really sign off on is the ‘everything shower’ – an intensive, extensive ritual that takes care of your whole body, from head to toe.

If you’re as intrigued as we were by this idea, keep reading – we’ve put together everything we know about the everything shower, along with a sample schedule to get you started.

First off, what exactly is an ‘everything shower’?

As the name implies, an everything shower is a luxurious opportunity to take care of your whole body from top to bottom. This can include washing (naturally), conditioning, exfoliating, hair removal (hello!), and moisturizing. It’s like deep cleaning your home, but this time, it’s for yourself using all the health and beauty products in your toolkit. An everything shower could be the perfect pre-date prep or just plain good self-care.

As you can imagine, tackling all these beauty tasks takes a long time – typically two to four hours (!!), to be exact. But before you fear for your skin (no one likes prune fingers and toes), your water bill, and the earth, you won’t spend every minute in the shower or tub. A healthy amount of prep work and post-shower steps are involved, too.

So what are the benefits?

Dedicating this time to caring for yourself at least once a week can improve your mood in a big way. After all, cleanliness is next to godliness, or so some people say. Good personal hygiene and feeling clean are linked to increased self-confidence and overall positivity, plus more productivity.

How do I take an everything shower?

Wondering where to even begin? Your version of an everything shower will depend on your personal hygiene preferences and practices, but we’ve put together a helpful sample routine to get you started.

One of the best things about this self-care trend is that it’s completely customizable, so you can add and remove steps depending on what makes you feel like your best self.

Veet’s guide to an everything shower:


1. Set aside ample time for your new routine. Then, set the stage for total relaxation. Light some candles, get your aromatherapy on, and cue up your favourite playlist on your waterproof speaker (Harry Styles, binaural beats – choose your adventure).

2. Take care of any pre-shower practices on your list. This could include a thorough face cleanse to remove any makeup and residue, applying a hair mask, and completing a dry brush routine for increased circulation and blood flow.

In the shower:

3. We like to work from head to toe in the shower. So, first up, hair. Rinse out any pre-shower hair treatment you applied, then go ahead and wash your hair. Pamper yourself with an extra-deep head massage,or opt for a scalp scrub tool. Next, use a conditioner or a hair mask and a detangler, and finish off with a leave-in treatment.

4. Then, focus on your face. You could use a face mask if you’d like or treat yourself to a second cleanse with your favourite product.

5. Next up is your body — some options here include exfoliating and cleansing with a luxurious body wash. Now is also the time for hair removal if you choose to do so (body hair is a deeply personal choice!). Our Veet® PureTM Cream – In Shower products would be the perfect addition to your everything shower routine.


6. Moisturize! Liberally apply your holy grail body lotion and face creams. You could also add another haircare product to this step.

7. Now is also the time for additional hair removal practices here if that’s part of your wellness and beauty routine, with products like Veet® ProfessionalTM Underarm Hair Removal Cream and Veet® PURETM Wax Strips for Face

8. Now all that’s left is to enjoy the benefits of your new self-care routine. Put on your coziest pajamas or lounge set, climb into bed and enjoy a warm beverage (soothing chamomile tea?) with your favourite show or a good book.

Congratulations! You’re now an expert at this fabulous TikTok wellness trend. (Can we add this to our resume?).
