RELAXING BATH TIME


When it's cold outside I hunch over; I cross my arms, bring my shoulders to my chin and generally walk around looking like a very cold, very old lady. Combined with late nights hunched over my laptop, and a few sessions at the gym, my muscles are in need of some serious relaxation. My new house has a bath, so Sunday evenings are reserved solely for pamper time.

I start by running a hot bath and adding two handfuls of Radox Herbal Salts Muscle Soak; I find this really helps my body to relax and it's cheap too. I then like to add in a little treat from Lush; one of my favourites is the Avobath. It contains lots of mashed avocado and olive oil, so brilliant for dry winter skin. It has a very strong, lemongrass scent, so if you're not a fan of strong scented baths I wouldn't recommend this, however, it's a great mood lifter and really helps me to mentally prepare for the week ahead. Sunday's for me are mostly spent at home, so it's rare that I'll be wearing any makeup, but if I am I'd usually take it off with a hot cloth cleanser, and then apply a face mask. Recently I've rediscovered the Good Things Five Minute Facial which also contains avocado to moisturise, and green clay and kaolin to cleanse. I love applying a face mask in the bath because the steam really helps to open pores and increase the benefits of the mask.

I then hop in, relax and let the products get to work. What bath products have you been loving recently?

  1. I've got a bath myself, but I hardly ever take a soak in it. That avocado Lush Bath Bomb looks divine, though, hope you're feeling all relaxed now! x
