Use perfume straight after showering

By spritzing your favourite scent as soon as you hop out of the shower and before getting dressed, the moisture on the skin will help lock in the fragrance for longer. So no need to worry about your perfume fading throughout the day and you’ll avoid any damage to your clothes too.

  • Do extra tasks as the shower water is heating up.
  • Use a revitalising shower gel like NIVEA Lemongrass & Oil Shower Gel, as it’s much more practical than bar soap.
  • Avoid washing your hair every morning if it doesn’t get greasy easily.
  • Invest in a shower timer to remind you when 5 or 10 minutes is up – it’s easy to get carried away otherwise!
