The only thing better than taking a relaxing bath is pampering yourself with a luxurious in-bath treatment. Designed to soften skin, exfoliate, and otherwise take your self-care to the next level, bath treatments are a must-have in everyone’s body care routine.
Different Kinds of Bath Treatments
Depending on what you’re using, there are a few different types of in-bath products that you can use as a treatment (and as a way to add a little touch of self-care to your bath).
One kind is bath bombs; they are super satisfying to watch dissolve and release skin-nourishing ingredients into the water for you to soak in. Other treatments include body scrubs, oils, and aromatherapy baths.
Benefits of Bath Treatments
Other than creating a spa-like experience right at home, using an in-bath treat actually helps your skin. Here’s the thing - we all know that a long dip in the bath softens skin - so let’s take advantage of that.
Hydrate Dry Skin
Some bath and shower treatments come as body oils. Think of the like cleansing oil, but instead, for your entire body. If your skin is dry, shower oil could be right for you. The oils in the formula moisturise the skin and gently rinse away without stripping and drying the skin.
Some in-bath treatment products are meant to be used as scrubs, exfoliating away dry skin. Soaking in the bath helps make any dry skin easier to scrub away for super soft, smooth skin.
Soothe Irritated Skin
Others have soothing ingredients added to hydrate and calm irritated skin while in the bath. These could include Centella Asiatica or Oat Extract, proven to soothe skin and reduce redness.
