Working out, taking time out with friends, going on long walks… There’s a lot of ways to de-stress at the weekend, but one of our most enjoyable ways is taking a long bath.
We look at some of the ways that you can make your bath incredibly luxurious. Thanks to some of the tips from Career Girl Daily, we also look at one of our favourite de-stressing products from our store.
Gather all your essentials
Find a nice bath soap, a book or your favourite magazine, some candles, essential oils for your relaxing bath. Transform your bath into a decadent moisture bath with foaming bubbles by twirling a great bath creme under running water.
Add A Scented Oil
Add some scented oil when your bath is halfway full. Lavender or rose oil are great choices because of the relaxing effect.
Dim the lights and make sure your bath is the right temperature. A warm bath is best for relaxing your body. If it’s too hot, you could get dizzy (we don’t want that).
Put on relaxing music and light a few candles
Spotify has some great relaxing playlists. It depends on your mood, but try to find something relaxing, calm and positive. Light a few candles and place them on the edge of the tub.
Bring some snacks
I always love to bring a cup of green or chamomile tea with me. You can even treat yourself to a nice glass of wine, champagne, strawberries, chocolates etc. Whatever you like it’s your special time. Place it within easy reach, but far enough away that it will not fall in the bathtub.
Put on a face mask and tie your hair up
Tie your hair up and put on a face mask. A face mask can be very relaxing when used while you’re taking a bath. Maria Galland Masque Mille Lumiere 1030 — Radiance Mask 1030 allows you to treat yourself to a very special kind of care experience – with a mask that makes the skin feel instantly relaxed, rested and alive. With a long-term effect. An extract of 5 blossoms, consisting of jasmine, lotus, magnolia, frangipani and edelweiss, assists the anti-wrinkle effect of the exclusive TOP•CMG complex and firms the skin.
Fluffy towel and bathrobe
Use some fluffy towels that make you feel warm and comfortable. You can even warm your towel by placing it on a radiator while you’re in the bath. This way your towel is nice and warm when you come out of your bath. Also, make sure your pj’s are already in the bathroom.
Enjoy your bath!
Relax, read a book and forget everything. This is your time to relax.
