Who else wants to stop taking showers?

I used to take a wonderfully long shower every day. Even when we moved to California and my skin started to tear because it was so dry. I bought better lotions and kept showering every day. I never imagined I could stop taking showers back then.

[wp_ad_camp_5]Then I had a baby.

You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? The baby’s small, so you shower only when someone else is around to make sure they’ll be fine. Or when they begin to walk, you want to be sure they don’t kill themselves, while you’re jumping into a 5 minute “shower” so you won’t smell bad at the end of the day.

Less Showering

I got used to less showering and realized my skin was happier. So, I’ve kept a schedule of showering every other day or two (except if I’ve had too many hot flashes, worked out, or it’s summer). It really depends on how yucky I feel or smell.

Anyway, after chemo and surgery, when things started to get back to normal, and I had less down time for self-care, I started to wonder how I could keep a self-care schedule that worked with increased activity.

As I looked around my bathroom I noticed pampering products that were languishing. Languishing because my self-care was always on the back burner. After all there was never enough time. So one day I decided to take more than ten minutes in the shower.

The scrubs and oils finally started looking used. Then, in December, I received the dry brushing brushes that were on my wish list. To say they changed my life would be an understatement, they have transformed the way I shower!

I still don’t take showers everyday (don’t judge me) even though my kids are old enough to leave alone. But when I do take a shower, it becomes a full blown spa experience that I’d like to share with you.
