So, bath time. Something we thought was a no-brainer, but there are a few things we should keep in mind to be the best bath ever! And at the end of a long workday, what is better than sliding into a warm, comforting bath? Remember, even though our state of mind is at ease—is our skin? This blog post is dedicated to our dry-skin friends and those who want to prevent the itch.
Do indulge in oil.
Hot water is not what leaves you with scaley, itchy skin. It is actually soap! To prevent this, be sure to add oil to your bath or run a bubble bath that already contains it. Save the sudsy soap for the end of your bath, right before you plan on leaving your warm, safe haven. Have
you tried our Pure Argan Oil infused with Lavender? Ahhh, all the calming feels.
Did you know Lavender reduces blood pressure and heart rate? We also find that it can improve sleep and who doesn’t like the sound of that? There are so many benefits of lavender!
Don’t stay in for more than 15-20 minutes
Though it may be tempting, staying in a pool of warm water for more than 15-20 minutes will cause that prune-like skin texture that we all know and do not like. When prune like skin occurs, the top layer of skin has lost a great amount of water. If you do decide to stay in warm water for longer, be sure to thoroughly moisturize the skin as soon as you leave your bath!
P.S. It is recommended that if bath salts are used, to only remain in the bath for 10 minutes.
We particularly love our Natural Body Lotion which comes in an aroma of either Vanilla or Berry Citrus. This product is surely the way to nurse your skin back to hydration because it features nourishing ingredients such as Vitamin E, Organic Jojoba Oil, and Organic Sunflower Oil, to name a few. Seal in hydration!
Do a quick clean of your tub
Before you decide to spend the next 15-20 minutes in the tub, assure yourself that it is sparkling clean! If you can’t do a deep clean each day, at the very least use a paper towel or cloth to remove soap residue, bacteria, stray hair, etc.
Don’t shave before
Now, some people think shaving is an excellent bath activity when boredom may occur, but keep in mind that hot water is an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and germs. If you were to shave before or during a bath, your opened pores will let those germs in—ick! Instead, enjoy your bath, take a quick shower right after and shave then!
We hope these tips will help you have the bath of your dreams!
