NIVEA® Shower Tips & Ideas

Whether taking a quick shower after the gym or indulging in "me" time, discover ways to make the best of your shower experience.

Different approaches to showering


In a rush? Master the quick shower.

Focus on cleansing when you are in the shower and you will be surprised by how much time you could save.

The quick and efficient shower

It is no secret that modern day-to-day life can be hectic. People want to shower as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Cutting down on the time you spend in the shower while keeping clean is certainly possible, but requires a certain amount of planning to ensure that it is productive and a comfortable experience.

First and foremost, make sure you have everything you need ready, whether it be certain shower products, your toothbrush or your loofah. You don’t want to be getting out of the shower half way through to grab anything and lose valuable time!

If you are in a hurry, set yourself a maximum time limit and stick to it.

How to have a relaxing shower

When you are not restricted by time, you can afford to pamper yourself in the shower. Why not dim the lights, fill the room with your favorite fragrance and really wind down?

It is also a good idea to choose shower products that are rich and indulging if you are having a relaxing shower. Treat yourself to NIVEA Silk Mousse Body Wash and enjoy the indulging mousse with silk extract to help leave your skin clean and noticeably silky soft. Or if you prefer to pamper your skin with a luxurious scent, NIVEA Care & Hibiscus with almond oil provides your skin with intense, long-lasting moisturization and no greasy feel.

A relaxing shower is about more than just washing yourself. It is about soaking up the atmosphere, forgetting your worries and enjoying your "me" time.

Time to unwind: The relaxing shower

On the other hand, some people like to take their time when they shower. Enjoying a steaming hot shower is one of life’s little moments of relaxation, in which you can let the stress of the day fade away.

The key to a good shower: Preparation

Preparing for your shower in the right way will help you to save time and be more organized.

Before hopping in the shower, it is important to decide how much time you want to spend and what you want to achieve. If you don’t wash your hair every day, make sure to plan the days you do want to wash it in advance. That way, you can leave yourself extra time without having to rush.

If you plan on going to the gym, try to plan your shower for after. Likewise, if you prefer showering as soon as you wake up, make sure you  leave enough time. A rushed shower may leave you feeling stressed, which is not the way to start your day.

Plan your products

Before you step into the shower, it’s a good idea to decide which products you are going to use on your skin and hair so that you can get them out ready and have a clear plan of action in your mind.

Preparation Tips

  • Put a shower cap on if you are not planning to wash your hair
  • Brush your hair through if you are planning to wash it
  • Use a body scrub to remove dead skin cells
  • Heat up your bathroom to a comfortable temperature
  • Choose your outfit that you are going to wear for the day so it is ready when you get out of the shower.
