Whilst we may have fought against bath-time as a child, it’s now one of our favourite indulging treats. Can you class bathing a hobby? Because it’s essential to our self-care and wellness routine. The heat from a long soak acts as a tension release, relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to the skin.
Research has also shown that much like spending time in a sauna, baths can help reduce the risk heart attacks and help lower blood pressure. If that weren’t reason enough spend some time in the tub, it’s understood that the skin releases endorphins when we’re in warm water, in a similar way to when it feels the sun on our skin – no wonder we emerge feeling extra-relaxed.
We’re advocating making time-out to turn bathing into full-on calming ritual, treating your hair, skin, face and body in the process. For an extra-luxe bathing experience, we go all-out, lighting a candle, listening to this soothing Meditation Music mix and insist upon a low-light situ.
This, paired with our edit of the best products will help you create a premium bathing experience. You’ll be transported to a spa-esque retreat within your own home, coming out feeling nourished and new.
