All you need to know about the shower flower.
As its name suggests, the shower flower is an accessory shaped like a flower. Its various petals are made from plastic or foam. It is used to cleanse and exfoliate the body. To use it, simply:
Apply a few drops of shower gel to the heart of the flower;
Cleanse the entire body by performing circular movements.
The shower flower is primarily valued for its cost-effectiveness. Indeed, the use of this accessory does not require a large amount of cleansing product. Moreover, it dries quickly. Once wrung out, the flowers fold back easily. In addition to this, their honeycomb petals are designed to gently exfoliate the upper layer of the epidermis. As a result, dead cells are removed, which prevents the occurrence of ingrown hairs. One of the drawbacks of the shower flower is the onset of irritations caused by the plastic and the exfoliation process.
A closer look at the washcloth.
Found in most bathrooms, the washcloth is an essential for body care. Whether made from cotton or synthetic fibre, it allows for the cleansing and exfoliation of the skin. Once dampened, this shower accessory aids in scrubbing the skin, thus removing dead skin cells. It can be used for cleaning the face and the entire body.
Some models of washcloth can help to firm and drain water. To do this, it is appropriate to make circular movements with the washcloth.
However, it is recommended to regularly change your washcloth to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. Similarly, it is advisable to use a different washcloth for the body and the face.
Other accessories for pampering oneself in the shower.
If you're still undecided between a washcloth and a shower puff, here are some other accessories you can use for showering:
The back-washing strap:
Whether made from bamboo or microfibres, this accessory takes the form of a long strip of coarse fabric. It is equipped with two handles that make it easy to hold and allow it to be rubbed against the back. The back-washing strap is particularly used to provide a self-massage under the shower.
The loofah is a variety of gourd originating from Mediterranean countries. It can be used as a plant-based sponge once dried. This unusual accessory stimulates microcirculation. Once wet, it swells and becomes flexible.
The small brushes:
These are used to enjoy a gentle exfoliation while in the shower. Once a week, lightly rub your face and décolletage with the granulated area after applying your usual cleansing care.
