Bathing soaks are a great way to indulge and take care of your skin. Especially when it comes to homemade bathing soaks which give you a more natural and wild edge over the many chemically enhanced products in the market. All homemade soaks are 100% natural and by making them yourself, you know exactly what went in them so there is no chance of a buyer dissonance. Let’s talk about some interesting bath soak recipes that can be easily made and are very reliable:
Honey soaks can be made using the following ingredients:
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup dried powdered milk
Olive oil contains vitamin A, D and E, which is great for the skin as it increases smoothness, hydrates and kills dryness. Honey on the other hand has healing properties and expunges impurities, while milk contains lactic acid that cleans and exfoliates the skin. Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl and mix thoroughly in a pitcher of warm water. Now pour the solution in the bath tub, taking care to stir so that it dissolves evenly in the water. You do not want lumps to gather in the tub. Get inside the tub and relax in the soothing water for 20 minutes.
The following ingredients go into making this wonderfully fresh soak:
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- A few drops of peppermint oil
- ¼ cup lemon juice
The preparation method for this mixture is slightly complex but the results on your skin will be very rewarding. What you need to do is first blend the Epsom salts such that it becomes powdery instead of granulated. Mix lemon juice in it and pour this solution all over the water surface evenly before stirring. This will further ensure that the solution is evenly mixed with the water. Next, add a few drops of peppermint oil and you are set. The bath should now smell of lemon and peppermint.
Go into the water and kick back and relax or read your favorite novel. You can also experiment with various ingredients depending on your taste and the results after several successful attempts. By this time, you will also have an idea of which one of the bathing suits will be ideal for your skin.
These soaks usually work like a charm and make your skin gorgeous with continued use. When getting out of the water, never rub yourself with a towel to dry up. Instead pat dry your body since that prevents your skin from getting dry and keeps it moisturized. Once you have dried your body, gently rub olive oil in a smooth circular motion to give it a hydrating shine. Leave overnight for extra care.
