When was the last time you took a nice, relaxing bath? Especially one thatcan prevent breakouts in order to maintain clear skin? Having troublethinking back that far? Yes, I know! The number one excuse I usuallyhear is that there just aren't enough hours in the day. But if you take a serious look at your schedule, and designate 10-30 minutes once a weekfor "me" time, you'll be very happy you did it, believe me. Here's why...
This super-rejuvenating bath uses a powerful combination of herbs andessential oils that relax and sooth the nervous system, easing mentaland emotional strain. And the warm moisture derived from the mixturecleans the pores and moisturizes the skin in order to keep the skinclean and prevent breakouts.
Using herbs like this in an herbal bath allows the essential oils from theplants to be taken in through the pores of the skin, which are opened up by the warmth of the water. Excess sebum is removed and the herbal ingredients with these cleansing properties are then able to clean your pores to prevent them from being clogged (which could be the beginning of a breakout!). You will also get a more powerful effectsince the herbs are being inhaled and going directly in to your pores.
Try doing it on a Sunday when you're getting ready to start your week...
- 1 or 2 essential oils (any combination of lavender, thyme, chamomile and/or lime flowers)
- bath tub full of water (not hot, warm)
Add 5-10 drops of essential oil(s) to the water. The larger the tub, usecloser to 10 drops. The water should be warm, not hot, comfortableenough to submerge your body. I want you to feel as much relaxation aspossible, but please watch that you don't nod off or fall asleep! Relax in the bath for 10-30 minutes depending on the time you have. Repeatweekly.
So get ready to de-stress, keep your skin looking great long-term and even reconnect with your loved one. *wink wink*
