Few spaces are more sacred than a Southern woman's bathroom. This multipurpose room is a workshop where she primps in the morning and also a relaxing retreat where she unwinds at the end of the day. Whether her bathroom is neatly organized or drawers are bursting with beauty products galore, here are 10 things you're sure to find in every Southern woman's bathroom.

Monogrammed towel set

Whether received as graduation gifts or wedding presents, a Southern girl is sure to have at least a few sets of monogrammed towels in the linen closet.

Hot tools

Curling iron, blow-dryer, straightener—there's sure to be a fleet of styling tools at the ready. Check out this video for step-by-step instructions for mastering the perfect blowout.

Few Southern women leave the house without applying makeup—or at least swiping on lipstick or a coat of mascara. A fully stocked collection of makeup is sure to be either displayed on the counter or given its own drawer.

Skin Care Regimen

Southern women are loyal devotees to their skin care regimens—from a trusted makeup remover to a deep cleanser to a revitalizing moisturizer. There may be multiple steps to the face-washing process, but we've learned that you can't take shortcuts when it comes to healthy skin care.

Shower Cap

Shower caps are kept on hand for days when a shampoo isn't necessary and a blowout needs to be preserved when hopping in the shower.

Baby Powder

Our grandmothers swear by baby powder for managing sweat. It can also be used for eliminating grease from day-old hair.

Mani-pedi tools
