Taking some time out to soak in a big sudsy bath is one of life’s simple pleasures. A hot, deep soak not only relaxes the body but also relaxes the mind too. Whether you’ve spent the last nine hours sat at a desk or just finished a tough session in the gym, taking a bath is an amazing way to naturally alleviate muscle strain and relieve stress and anxiety. We’ve rounded up some top tips to ensure you make the most out of your evening soak.
The key to having started the perfect bath actually starts before you enter the water. Before climbing in, scrub away dead skin cells and boost your circulation with an exfoliating scrub like the ESPA Exfoliating Body Polish. Apply all over the body, focusing on particularly dry areas such as the ankles, knees and elbows. For skin benefits that last much longer than your soak, try using a face mask that works well with steam like the Chantecaille Detox Clay Face Mask. Formulated with Kaolin Clay, the mask is infused with innovative botanicals to help to control and hydrate the skin.
