Relaxation baths, a moment of relaxation from the stress of everyday life. But what about the skin? The answer is in bath additives. Bath additives are products that you can add to your bath water to help you get healthier and more radiant skin.
Bath accessories are products that you can add to your bath water to help you get healthier and more radiant skin. As relaxing as a soaks in the tub for two hours, there is still exfoliating + cleansing & moisturizing going on.
- Sea minerals that cleanse – Himalayan salts with detoxifying properties, Dead Sea Salts rich in therapeutic minerals perfect for sensitive skin (plus they smell like it).
- Epsom salt which contains natural sulfuric acid to fight signs of aging by stripping away dead cells + leaving chemical – free pores then Witch Hazel known best for its healing anti-inflammatory acne properties.
Witch hazel is a plant whose leaves are used as an astringent.
It is also used to soothe skin conditions such as acne, sunburns, and insect bites. It can also be used to help prevent the spread of certain kinds of infections. Witch hazel has been used medically for centuries and is one of the most popular herbs for dermatological treatments. It can be found in liquid form in most pharmacies.
It is recommended that you use witch hazel preparations on your skin three times a day or before you go out into the sun to protect yourself from burns. Witch Hazel may cause problems when taken by mouth, but should not cause problems when applied to the skin.
So how exactly does this all work?
When you take a bath, minerals get trapped in dead skin cells which clog pores. Bath additives such as sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) help loosen dirt/debris from those pores while magnesium salts open them up again. Epsom salt will also help relax sore muscles after exercise or long days due to its high magnesium and sulfate content.
Find what type of product works best for you (e.g., salt or oil) based on preference and consistency with bathing habits.
The most important thing to remember about these bath additives is that they are not meant to be a substitute for soap in the shower! If you want your skin to feel clean, use both products together!
