Bathtime Beauty

Images – Pinterest

If you know anything about me you know I love a good bath. The hot water, the bubbles that smell amazing, and quiet time. After posting my bathtub pamper routine I decided to share with you lovely readers, something that I found incredibly interesting.

Did you know that there are a million more options to enhance your bath time than just bubble bath, oils or bath bombs? Apart from rose petals, I never thought to add anything organic to my bath. In reality it’s a bit of a duh moment, we are always trying to detox and treat our bodies naturally so why not go straight back to the basics?

Enhance your me time with something you can’t find in the beauty aisle – add any of these to the hot water and enjoy.

Tea Bags – anti-aging properties that detox and balance the skin.

Honey – Softens and smooths the skin.

Jello Powder – Hydrates and soften the skin plus it smells amazing.

Milk – Soothes and calms irritated skin.

Olive Oil – Hydrates and strengths the skin’s outer layer, also great for anti-aging.

Salt – An anti-imflammitory that helps relieve pain.

Lavender – A great stress reliever that helps you wind down at the end of the day, is also   great at soothing inflammation and muscle strains.

Lemon – Shrinks pores and helps to refresh and revive your body.

Ginger Root – Wonderful for cold and flu relief as well as relaxing muscles.

Baking Soda – Calms and soothes irritated skin.

Cinnamon – Great for treating rashes and detoxing the skin.

What do you like to add to your bathtime?
