This article really needs no introduction, who doesn't like a long, hot bath? Here I will be sharing with you some of my favorite self care treatments and give you some to-die-for tips that I guarantee will make your experience so much more enhanced!
Music. Whether bath or shower (or doing my makeup...), my music is always playing. This puts me in the vibe and I really get the time to enjoy myself. I love using a shower waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Some of my favorite shower/bath songs: - Sabrina Claudio, Truth is - Sia, Loved Me Back To Life - Alan Walker, Lily - Lexie Liu, Mulan - Rihanna, Consideration - Ava Max, Salt - Sia, Stargate - Sia, Diamond Heart - Ava Max, Anyone But You - Dance Monkey, Tones and I - Maroon5, Memories
Set the mood. This is my favorite part! Light up some candles and set up a romantic scene for yourself. I love placing my healing stones around the tub, throw in some rose petals, bath salts, essential oils and have a glass of champagne or ros'e to go with the vibe. This is your time to get creative and really work on self appreciation. Some of my favorite healing stones: - Amethyst – Probably the most useful for stress relief. - Smoky Quartz - Helps with feeling more grounded. - Rose Quartz – Helps with remaining calm and keeping an open heart. - Citrine - Helps with balancing and aligning. - Carnelian – Helps with sexual energy and love.
Your products. Your actual bathing routine is as important as setting up the mood. I always like to use body scrubs, butters and exfoliaters to help get rid of any dead skin cells and feel fresh and new! Tip: Make sure your products have good fragrances that make you feel amazing and more connected with yourself.
Shower. After your relaxing bath it's always best to take a shower with water running from the shower head. The reason for this is because you don't want extra oils, scrubs, dirt etc. to stay on your body after a bath. Never take your shower in the same water as you bathed in, this will have a counter effect on your hygiene.
After shower products. Here are some of my favorite after shower products I always use: - Victoria Secrets/ Pink body lotions (I have a whole collection I love to use!) - Organic Deodorant - Coconut oil/ Jojoba oilo/ Castor oil for my hair. I always like to rotate as each oil has different beneficial properties. Tip #1: Castor oil is for fast hair growth and volume. Tip #2: Start from the bottom up. Never put oil to your scalp. Tip #3. This is more of a reminder but make sure you don't overuse the products. All you need is a little drop and that should be enough for long, thin hair. For thicker hair you can use a bit more. - Vitamin E oil for face - Nightly serum and moisturizer - Clean towels are a big thing for me. Make sure you tap your face with your towel and use 2 different towels for your face and body. Towels attract an insane amount of bacteria so they should be changed every so often or buy antimicrobial towels.
