Luxury Baths, DIY-Style 🛀

Haha, yeah i’m not much of a DIYer. There’s a million different products out there designed to be added to a bath that will actually have an effect. My recommendations:

  • Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution (i like the lavender scented ones)
  • Anything Lush (luxury bath oils run ~$3.50)
  • Aveeno Active Naturals Soothing Bath Treatment
  • Fresh Sake Bath (will change your life)
  • Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak
  • Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Honey Bath

However, I don’t think bath DIYs are a bad idea! Unlike facial skin, the skin on the body tends to be thicker and less sensitive. I think if you’re going to do DIY, body care is well suited to that.

  • Oatmeal has a long history of being used in baths to soothe skin.
  • Milk contains lactic acid, which provides a mild exfoliation to the skin.
  • Essential oils provide aromatherapy.
  • Red Wine or Sake provide antioxidant and fermented goodness. Extra relaxing. (save a glass for yourself 😉 )
  • Apple Cider Vinegar makes your bath water more acidic, which keeps your skin at a balanced pH. It’s also antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.
  • Honey is antimicrobial, antioxidant, and moisturizing.
  • Green Tea is antioxidant rich and soothing.

Enjoy, and try not to get bath water on your face!
