How often do you think about your shower routine? You probably bathe yourself without really thinking about it, but believe it or not, there is a right way to take a shower. While you probably get plenty clean with your current method, we’ve jotted down some of the essential tips to make your me-time experience more efficient and better. 

Read on to the ultimate, simple and most effective bath time cheat sheet & thank us later. 


  • Don’t scrub your scalp with your fingernails 
  • When you scrub your scalp with fingernails you might end up hurting yourself. Your fingernails carry a lot of bacteria and dirt and you also might end up transferring the same into the scalp which is very unhygienic and also unhealthy for your scalp. If you’re applying shampoo you can use a hair scalp massager instead to stimulate hair growth and regulate blood circulation. 

  • Don’t use extremely hot water
  • Did you know that taking a shower with extremely hot water can cause dry scalp? Hot water can end up damaging your scalp and also damage your hair follicle. Instead, you should shower with lukewarm water. 

  • Don’t scrub your body too hard 
  • Scrubbing is an essential part of the shower routine. But scrubbing yourself too hard can damage your skin and you might end up with rashes. Instead, you should gently scrub your body to get rid of any dirt or grime. 


  • Use a moisturizing body wash 
  • How your skin feels post your shower is very important. Your skin should always be clean, hydrated, moisturized, and nourished. To ensure you have eternal moisturized skin get your hands on Santoor Hydrating Body Wash. This hydrating body wash makes skin soft, supple and healthy. It also stimulates blood flow bringing about a freshness and liveliness to your complexion with every bath. Enriched with the goodness of virgin coconut oil and moringa extracts in the Santoor Body Wash hydrates your skin and gives you soft and moisturised feel for the #NoFilter look.

  • Use a loofah to exfoliate your body
  • Loofahs are an essential part of any shower routine. They are used to scrub dirt and dead skin cells off your body. Natural loofahs are made from gourds, but there are a lot of different types of loofahs made either from other natural materials like coconuts or from synthetic material. These are meant to be washed after every use and kept dry when not in use to prevent the growth and spread of bacteria. They’re great for cleaning and exfoliating your skin to make it soft and smooth.

  • Rinse your skin and hair thoroughly with water
  • Often, you might end up with residue of the shampoo or the face product in your hair or face. This residue might cause scalp irritation or rashes on your face. Hence, take your own sweet time to rinse all the products off your skin and hair thoroughly before you step out of the shower. 

    If you are in a rush and unable to follow a full-fledged shower routine, then this ultimate cheat sheet is your savior to maintain your skin’s health.
