A nice warm bath is the perfect way to relax after a busy schedule. In fact, there are many good reasons to step into the tub...
Hydrotherapy at home
No need to go to the spa to enjoy the benefits of a hydrotherapy bath. What is hydrotherapy? It's simply using water as a treatment. Warm water has always been used to relax or to soothe muscle aches and menstrual cramps. However, make sure to follow these simple rules to make the most of your bath:
Control the water temperature: it must be between 20° and 37°C, depending on your likes and needs.
To tighten and stimulate blood circulation, use cooler water, i.e., 20°C.
For muscle toning, increase the temperature to 25°C.
However, if you want to relax and allow your muscles to recover after a long day, the ideal temperature is 37°C.
Add bath products: they are essential in helping you relax without drying or damaging your skin. Choose your bath products according to the desired results.
If you want to relax, use bubble bath, sea salt, milk bath or clay.
If you are looking for a toning effect, choose essential oils, toning mousse or Epsom salts, which revitalize and refresh your skin.
A healthy break
Bath time is the perfect occasion for a face and body scrub.
Warm water causes pores to dilate and open up, making it the ideal time to apply a moisturizing mask. Relaxation guaranteed.
We like: Caudalie Crushed Cabernet de Scrub, which contains crushed grape seed, brown sugar, grape oil, and lemongrass essential oils that exfoliate, drain and smooth the skin. For anyone looking for deep exfoliation combined with a slimming action.
After your bath
When your break is over, it's important to dry off properly and to moisturize your skin. Apply body milk or a moisturizing cream to prevent dry, irritated skin. Since bath water is high in calcium, it can dry out your skin.
We like: Bioderma Atoderm Cream, a fragrance-free moisturizing lotion that nourishes, restructures and moisturizes dry to very dry sensitive skin.
