Now that winter is here, it’s the perfect time to stay in have a luxurious relaxing bath and snuggle on the sofa with a hot chocolate! So, we’ve put together a bath-time bliss guide to show you how to create the perfect oasis.
Set the Scene
To create a tranquil environment clear away any clutter so that the bathroom is neat, tidy and ready for some pure relaxation. Switch on your iPod dock to soothing music and light a sumptuous scented candle like NV.’s strawberry and cardamom symphony candle which is made from natural soy wax and is luxurious and utterly divine!
Bath & Body
While your bath is running, pour in a generous amount of bath oil ~ we love the Jasmine and Vanilla Organic Bath Oil from LuLu and Boo. The sensuous blend of exotic Jasmine, Orange, Ylang Ylang and Vanilla will help relax the mind and the body as well as pampering skin to leave it feeling silky soft.
Your bath is now ready for you. Lay back, unwind and relax.
Once you’re ready to really treat your skin, throw in a bath bomb. Funky Honey’s Cupcake Bath Bomb in Very Berry Cherry’ is delicious – simply twist the icing off the top and use as an exfoliator to get silky smooth skin and drop the cake in the bath to see it fizz away.
Lavender is also known to help relax, de-stress, and relieve tension in the body, so try a lavender-based body wash like the Deep Steep Lavender Body wash from CutECOsmetics.co.uk. Lather the body wash so that it gently and effectively cleanses your skin from head to toe.
Although baths create a serene, relaxing environment – it is always best to wash your hair in the shower under clean water. We love the Rosemary and Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner from The Natural Revolution which combines rosemary to help stimulate hair growth, superbly hydrating sandalwood and finished with jojoba oil – an antioxidant rich in vitamins and minerals.
Stay under the shower and bring your skin to life with an exotic body scrub like the Mocha & Lime Body Polish from The Natural Revolution. With a blend of cocoa butter, coconut oil and lime, this body polish is not only nourishing, softening and protecting but it smells delicious and is good enough to eat!
Caring for your Skin
Continue your pamper session and moisturise your body with a gorgeous scented lotion. The Deep Steep Grapefruit Bergamot Body Lotion provides a light, everyday moisturiser while boosting your skin’s natural ability to rehydrate.
Now that your body is relaxed and smelling wonderful, pull on a pair of comfy pyjamas, sit back, relax and apply a face mask. Try a rejuvenating mask like Lulu and Boo’s Fruits and Vitamins Brightening Mask – it is anti-ageing and packed full of fruit extracts rich in vitamins and minerals. What’s more, face masks offer the extra nourishment your skin needs during the harsh winter months!
Pamper session completed. We hope you now feel relaxed, calm and stress-free. Ahhh, bliss.
