A guide to the perfect bath

A guide to the perfect bath

A long bath can solve a multitude of problems. After a long day, nothing can relax you more than a indulgent soak.

Whether you want to detox, relax or soothe your body if you’re feeling a little under the weather, choosing the perfect temperature and products for your bath can help make your bathing experience a wonderful one.

The detoxifying bath

Sometimes your skin needs a serious detox. Our dedicated skincare routines make sure all the oil and impurities are drawn out of  our complexions but we often neglect the skin on our bodies.

A very warm bath can open up your pores and encourage sweating which allows your body to release toxins and impurities. Such a cleanse will only enhance the natural radiance of your skin, leaving your skin supple and glowing. Warm to hot baths also work wonders on your muscles, working to relax and ease tension so you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

The ESPA Detoxifying Bath Oil is the perfect addition to your hot, detoxifying bath. Enriched with Cypress and Juniper Berry, the Bath Oil cleanses and purifies your skin whilst its uplifting Grapefruit scent stimulates the senses.

The de-stress bath

Let your worries melt away with a relaxing bath. Taking a little time for yourself and having a long, relaxing soak can really help you to de-stress and can leave you rejuvenated, ready to take on any challenges which may come your way.

Soaking for 10-20 minutes can help to relax your muscles, ease any tension and give you some much needed head space.

The Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil is the perfect product to help you unwind and relax. The nurturing powers of Vetivert, Camomile and Sandalwood help to calm the body and mind, making your bath a truly relaxing experience.

The indulgent bath

Although baths have many benefits for our overall health and wellbeing, often we have a bath just because we want a little time to indulge and treat ourselves. Creating a spa-like bath experience from the comfort of your own home is the perfect way to give yourself a well-deserved pamper.

Begin by choosing a luxurious oil for your bath. We love the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil as the indulgent combination of Moroccan Rose Otto Oil, Geranium Oil and Sesame Oil nourish and hydrate your skin whilst you bathe. Follow by cleansing your skin from head to toe with the Aroma Cleanse Alguaromes Toning Shower and Bath Gel from Decleor, a rich cleansing gel which tones and invigorates your skin.

Complete your spa-like bath routine with a rich, hydrating body cream to lock in the skin’s moisture. The Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter delivers intense moisture and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.
