A few tips for an excellent bath at home

I wish to talk about "self-love” today. One of the best ways to express and enjoy this beautiful feeling is a relaxing bath! Here are a couple of tips:
1. Rinse the bathtub with warm water, create the atmosphere, light up candles or frankincense (be careful with fire!). The room should be warm.
2. Play some nice music.
3. Fill the bathtub with pleasantly warm water (around 37-40°C).
4. Use salts and/or essential oils. The salt is good for muscle and joint pains (300-500 grams of sea salt or 1kg of regular salt).  Essential oils are good for aromatherapy (lavender – for relaxation, eucalyptus – if you have a cold, chamomile – against stress, orange – for good mood, etc.). The oils should be added by drops (6-10 drops). You can also add a cup of apple cider – it will soften and calm your skin..
5. You have to bath for 20 minutes at least but not immediately after the meal – it burdens your stomach, circulatory system and heart. ⠀
6. Bathing more than twice a week is not recommended (hot water makes your skin drier).
7. Take a warm shower after the bath and then let your skin cool down slowly for the pores to close.
8. Once your bath is over, don't forget to spoil yourself by an air humidifier and a perfumed body milk lotion.
If you suffer from varicose veins, cardiovascular problems, fever, skin injuries, or if you have just undergone a surgery, you should keep away from hot water and consider another way of taking care of your skin. Find the tips on our Instagram!
