For softer, smoother legs
Are you a Bath Beauty? I certainly am. I absolutely love my baths at the end of a busy day.
So how do I manage to keep my skin from drying out and actually reap benefits from my baths?
First of all I never use plain, ordinary bubble bath liquids, or scented and artificially colored bath salts. They might smell nice, but they are bad news for your skin and health in general, as they get absorbed into your body.
So what's the alternative?
Buy only 100% natural bath products or follow my simple and inexpensive bath beauty ideas.
Dry Skin Prevention
Do you absolutely have to have a steaming, hot bath, but hate how it dries out your skin?Apply baby oil before jumping in the water. It will create a barrier that guards your skin from drying out.
When running a bath add a heaping cup of powdered milk and a drop of your favorite essential oil to your water.
Milk contains lactic acid that will assist your skin in getting rid of dry, dead layers. The milk protein will help in retaining moisture and adding softness.
The result? Soft, smooth and very touchable legs!
Sea Salt or Epsom Salts
Add a handful of sea salt into your bath water.
It will detoxify your skin and gets rid of bloating and water retention. So it's a must, if your legs get puffy.
To help your tired legs relax, add some essential oils to your hot bath. Choose your favorite scents for total body and mind relaxation.
Are you wondering which ones work best for achy muscles?
Choose from the following:
- marjoram - to improve circulation
- rosemary - to stimulate
- birch or eucalyptus - to relax
- lavender - to calm
I add essential oils to all my baths as the scent helps me relax to the max! And adding a scoop of powdered milk makes it a truly heavenly experience.
