9 steps to the perfect bath time.
Create the atmosphere. Start by lighting a couple of your favourite candles and gather all your bathing essentials in one spot. Make sure your towel and robe are nearby and start running your bath.
Make sure the temperature is right. A little on the toasty side means it’ll stay perfectly warm for the duration of your bath.
Choose your fragrance. It all comes down to preference: bubble baths, bath oil or bath salts… whatever works for you and if you’re soaking regularly this will give your body to chance to relax and reset.
Supplement your soak. Add a couple drops of essential oil: lavender essential oil is a great help for setting a bed time bath! And of course, if your skin needs little extra hydration, add in milk, like Cleopatra used to do, or a touch of coconut oil.
Always remember to hydrate. Since your body will be prone to sweating out toxins, always drink a glass of water while in the bath, or perhaps a detox tea.
Stay unplugged: opt, instead, for your favourite book or magazine and relax.
Let the music play: Soft jazz, ambient or classical are all perfect choices for relaxing in the bath. Keep the volume low, just enough so you can hear it, and let yourself be taken away to a more relaxed place.
Masks anyone? Use your bath time to add in a beauty treatment. Apply a face mask or a hair mask that can stay on for more than 30 minutes.
The finishing touch. Apply a good moisturizer after getting out of the bath and wrap up in a cozy robe. Your skin will thank you for the extra care!
