Given that bath time is one of womankind’s most indulgent rituals – the sort of thing that almost needs to be planned out, given the fast-paced lifestyle so many of us are accustomed to – it makes sense to make it as special and pampering as possible. What differentiates a languid bath from the banality of a morning shower is obvious: it offers an escape from the stresses of daily life, and it can be a means to other ends, as well. Using restorative, healing and aromatherapeutic products can make a world of difference in how she feels – not just physically, but mentally, too. Cue these comforting additions to any bath routine, guaranteed to leave her in a relaxed state of mind and body.
Make a tub full of warm water even more enticing with some help from The Seaweed Bath Co. Bath Powder. Infused with a cocktail of effective and natural ingredients, including detoxifying seaweed, moisturizing argan oil and calming lavender essential oil, this blend is like a miracle in a tub. After a 20-minute soak, she’ll feel like a new woman.
If a beach trip isn’t on the agenda right now, she’ll find even more reason to sink into a tub full of Philosophy Cabana Girl Bubble Bath. Scented with a juicy, tropical-inspired blend of guava and coconut, this true-to-life fragrance envelops her with its decadent aroma and thick, luscious, foamy bubbles.
Cocoa Butter Scrub
What better way to smooth skin and reveal a softer finish this summer? Made with crushed rice and fine almond shell powder, The Body Shop’s Cocoa Butter Scrub is an intense exfoliator that makes quick work of even the driest skin. Bonus: It smells like dessert!
Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter
The easiest way to seal in moisture and reap the hydrating benefits of those bath products? With a thick, creamy emollient like Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter. Just as dreamy as it sounds, this rich moisturizer is quickly absorbed into the skin and scented with a light, pleasant fragrance that actually lasts.
