There’s always beauty to be found in simplicity, and there’s nothing quite like the transformative power of a shower. It’s the AM espresso shot that ensures you’re ready to face the world. The pre-night out prep that makes you feel like a radiant goddess. And the end of the day, a soothing shower can really help you wind down, switch off and truly relax.

Scrub + Exfoliate = The Body Beautiful Shower

Yep, we may have mentioned it several thousand times, but we sure do love a bit of multi-tasking. Taking two minutes in the shower morning or evening to use an effective exfoliator really is a fantastic use of your time – and done daily, you’ll definitely see results. After all, who doesn’t want toned, glowing skin? We don’t need to tell you, but there are LOADS of useless scrubs out there (a shower gel with microbeads does not mean you’re a scrub, dear…), but these ones really do what they say on the tin – and get the RIH Skincare Seal of Approval. Okay, we’ve just made that up, but they’re good!
