If you can’t step into a spa for that much needed soak, turn your tub into your own personal spa! Surround the tub with glowing candles, soft background music if you like, a good book, or simply just relax in the peaceful atmosphere as research shows that taking a hot bath an hour before bed can help you to sleep.
Feel like Cleopatra
Cleopatra was famous for her beautiful skin. Her secret was that she soaked in baths of milk and honey. Modern laboratories now know why milk worked such wonders for her skin: the lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, a natural material that dissolves the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Milk can cleanse the skin down to its deepest layers. Honey is softening and moisturizing skin.
This secret beauty formula couldn’t be simpler.
Combine 5 HONEYSTICK
(1/4 cup of honey) with 2 cups of milk, add some crushed lavender buds or a few drops of scented oil, for a wonderful relaxing fragrance.
Add to your bathwater, enjoy. Soak for a good 20 minutes. Gently rub your skin with a washcloth or loofa to slough off the dead skin. Rinse your body thoroughly after soaking.
The spa-bath experience is more than unwind time. It’s a great way to hydrate yourself and soak in skin loving oils that soothe, nourish and moisturize your skin, aiding in elasticity, cell renewal, anti-aging and overall skin health. Leaving you with a natural glow and general well being.
