Bath Time is Beauty Time

Bath Time is Beauty Time

I dont know anyone that doesn't enjoy the luxurious feeling of a lovely hot bath with all the bells and whistles. It makes you feel like areal queen being treated to a wonderful psa treatment, even in the comfort of your own home. I mean you gotta have candles, not just any but the lovely sented ones and some soft music just to set the mood as well as some rose petals in the water. A heaven fit for any queen!

Make bath time your time!

 A restorative ritual
If you want to make the most of your bath, it helps to gather together everything you need before you start: whether you prefer a sponge, flannel or bath mitt, oil, bubbles or salts, your favourite soap or bath gel, a soft towel or two, and creams and moisturisers to apply to your freshly cleansed skin...

There are plenty of products on the market that will cleanse, tone, relax, hydrate and revitalize your skin and transform an ordinary bath time into a luxury pampering session without breaking the bank. It's important to create the right atmosphere, too, so you may want to add soothing music and scented candles to complete the ritual.



Time and temperature

The ideal duration of a bath is between ten and 15 minutes, depending on whether you want it to relax or invigorate; if it's the latter, you shouldn't stay in the water for more than five minutes. Water temperature is vital, and, particularly for a relaxing effect, the bath should be deep enough for the body to be well submerged

A bonus for your skin

To complete the beauty treatment, you can take advantage of the time in the water to apply a face mask – cleansing, moisturising or relaxing. Then switch off the outside world for a short while: close your eyes, listen to the music and breath in the fragrance of the bath oil or the candles. When you rejoin the world, everything should be back in proportion and easier to deal with. I love doing a hair mask too.

Bath Bombs or Fizzies - What's the difference?

Bath bombs, bath fizzies, fizzy bath bombs and more... who's knows what the difference is and what they do?!

We've investigated to find out and thought it's something worth sharing!

You'll be glad to know that there is no major difference between a bath bomb, bath fizzies and fizzy bath bombs.

Generally speaking bath bombs come in a solid form and bath fizzies are available in a grain form, which is also known as bath salts. However, you will often come across bath bombs that are referred to as bath fizzies.Why is this?

Quite simple really... a solid bath fizzie is a solid form homogeneous mixture that is made up using amorphous grains. By including sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and other ingredients to add to the colour, scent, aroma and therapeutic benefits, you create what's more commonly known as a bath bomb.

Both bath bombs and solid bath fizzies are nonreactive when dry, however, add them to your bath and watch them dissolve, whilst fizzing throughout your bath.

What is the Difference Between Shower Gel and Body Wash?

Shower gel and body wash are both forms of liquid soap that are appropriate for cleansing the body. The primary difference between the two is texture. Shower gel has a firmer, gel-like consistency while body wash is more like liquid soap or dish soap in consistency. Another difference between the two, though slight, is their concentration. Much like the difference between perfume and eau de toilette, shower gel frequently has a higher concentration of fragrance and tends to go farther than body wash. Shower gel and body wash are both popular alternatives to bar soap for cleansing, especially amongst women. Their preference could be attributed to their convenience of use and storage, but is most likely attributed to the wide variety of scents available. Shower gel and body wash may also be more appealing than bar soap because they frequently include moisturizers.

Remember:

  • Take the time to rest not just your body, but your mind: focus on pleasant thoughts.
  • Keep the bathroom warm and comfortable, not excessively hot.

  • Why not try a relaxing herbal tea – in a unbreakable cup, of course, to avoid accidents!

  • Never get out of the bath suddenly – particularly if you find you're getting dozy – as you may become dizzy or slip.
