This year, resolve to make more time for yourself. A hectic lifestyle coupled with daily stress can cause harm to both the mind and body. Even though it’s important to de-stress so that you feel good, it’s also essential for you to find an enjoyable way to relax to help decrease the formation of internal free radicals which can lead to premature aging and cell degeneration.
Keep your stress levels down by eating well and breathing properly; learn to balance stress, take time to relax your body and mind regularly and be sure to get an adequate amount of sleep. A simple way to relax and turn the world off (all technology included) is to enjoy a soothing bath. You don’t need to visit a spa to have a treatment-like bath experience. Follow these simple tips and make your next bath blissful!
The ideal bath temperature should be a little warmer than your body temperature (between 36 and 41 degrees Celsius), but not so hot that you are uncomfortable. Let the room fill with steam to open up your pores.
Exfoliate your body before going into the bath. you can sit in the bath with the exfoliating product on your skin. The sugars or salt will dissolve, and the essential oils will deeply penetrate your skin.
