Achieving a Perfect Bath

Sometimes you need to soak in a bath to ease your muscles. Get rid of tension and refresh your senses in the perfect bath. While running the water and sitting in it is important, that’s not how you achieve the perfect bath experience. Here are several things that you can do to maximize your bath-time to make it a perfect experience every time.

Clean your bath room. Nothing is more disgusting or upsetting when you sit down in the tub and notice dirt, grim, and mold in places. Make sure your tub, floor, and other surfaces are clean. Pick up toiletries and other garbage in the area. Cleanliness is important in the immediate area.

Set the mood. Light a candle, incense, or spray some air freshener to cleanse the air. These items help ease the sense using aromatherapeutic scents. Set the atmosphere to fit the feeling of your mood. Scented candles are a great source of calming the nasal and visual senses.

Turn on the tunes. Begin your audio therapy to achieve a relaxed state-of-mind. Play music that helps you feel stress-free. Find your happy medium whether it’s calming ambient, soothing nature sounds, or soft jazz. Make sure whatever music that is played will make you relaxed. If you are constantly surrounded by noise, having no music on can be a calming experience as well.

Start the water and infuse it. Monitor the temperature to ensure the water isn’t too cold or scalding hot. You’ll want it to be more of the hotter side though to allow you to sit before feeling cold. Add your desired bath products to infuse the water with body-loving nutrients. Epson salts and soaks are great for longer, deep muscle soaking. Bath bombs add aromatherapeutic scents to your bath. Vitamin oils and essential aroma oils boost the moisturization of your skin. Adding dry herbs to your bath water is the same as seeping tea bags. Liquid soap in the form of bubble bath provides visually soothing cleansing aids. Decide on what works for you.

Soak, scrub, and lather. When you dip into the water, be prepared to indulge in your relaxing moment. Immerse yourself in the water and begin to soothe your skin. After soaking for some time, begin your scrubbing of dead skin. Make sure you take time to be as through as you need to be. Use your bar or liquid soap to clean your skin. Lather the soap to your desired amount and work your way over your body. You may use various scrubbing agents like towels, sponges, brushes, loofahs, and more.

Rinse and dry. Don’t rush your bath by speeding through the last moments. Some people may run fresh water to rinse while others might turn on the shower to rinse. Just don’t startle yourself with a drastic temperature change. After you’ve rinsed, towel dry. Make sure you pat dry your body without completely drying your skin.

Soothe and Moisturize. Moisturize while your skin is damp. Waiting too long to apply reduces the amount of hydration that is trapped in your skin. Use your favorite product to have your skin feeling smooth and smelling great. Lotions, body butters, crèmes, and oils are all wonderful to use during this time depending on what you want.

 

A relaxing bath is a powerful emotion that can care your mood throughout the day and night. Leaving the bathroom doesn’t mean that you have to leave the calm mind behind. Try to stay relaxed as your go into your next task. To keep your aromatic calm heightened, light a candle, incense, or aroma room freshener. The power of a relaxing bath doesn’t’ just clean your body, it calms your mind and eases your spirit too. Explore your bath time to achieve new heights of relaxing aromatherapeutic pleasure.

Three Important Steps to Healthy Skin

It’s incredibly important to take care of your skin. It’s one of the first signs to show the signs of fatigue or aging. Whether it’s preventative, the quest to look younger, or general upkeep, there are three important steps you can take to attain healthy skin. Ultimately you should be cleaning, scrubbing, and moisturizing your skin. Lacking in one area can cause your skin to have sensitivity issues.

 

Cleaning

Cleaning your skin is a very important process in the quest to have healthy skin. Throughout the day, we come into contact with a lot of bacteria, dust, chemicals, and other foreign agents. Once on your skin, these foreign agents can cause havoc on your external and internal health. Bacteria that grows on your skin will clog pores and cause other skin sensitivities to occur. Dirt blocks your pores as well making it harder for your skin to release toxins. That buildup may happen in the form of acne. Free radicals in the environment break down our skin and other bodily cells to prevent them from working as possible. Cleaning your skin ensures that you remove as much harmful skin agents.

 

Exfoliating

A lot of our bathing habits is about removing dead skin from our body. Many people want smooth, soft skin that has little to no blemishes. There are many towels, scrubs, sponges, and more on the market that help exfoliate your skin to leave it feeling soft.

Body scrubs are a great method of exfoliating because they remove dead skin and moisturize at the same time. Regardless of the scrub being sugar, salt, or oil-based, body scrubs can be a great asset in keeping your skin smooth. Make sure your body scrub has vitamins, minerals, or other nutritional oils in it to ensure your skin has everything possible to be healthy. The smooth, revitalized skin you achieve from exfoliating with body scrubs are amazing. Whether you’re combating dry skin, wrinkles, toning, or cracked skin, exfoliating with body scrubs will alleviate and prevent those problems.

 

Moisturizing

Moisturizers keep the skin soft and hydrated for long periods of time. Depending on the type of moisturizer used, the effects may be more exaggerated. It’s important to constantly keep your skin moisturized with lotions, body butters, creams, and oils. These semi-solids to liquids will aid in the repairing functions of the skin by adding nutrients to the skin and bloodstream.

There are several variables to consider when choosing the best moisturizer. First, ensure that it has essential vitamins and minerals that can be helpful for your skin to heal and maintain itself. You want to make sure that the moisturizer isn’t too heavy or light on your skin. Certain heavier oils may leave your skin feeling gooey and super shiny. Other oils may require multiple applications throughout the day or can even make your skin feel drier. Consider the longevity of moisturizers. Some oils and butters absorb faster into the skin than others. Will you have to reapply the moisturizer every couple of hours or once a day? Find a moisturizer that is going to work for your skin type.
