When was the last time you took a nice, relaxing bath? Especially one that can prevent breakouts in order to maintain clear skin? Having trouble thinking back that far? Yes, I know! The number one excuse I usually hear 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 week for "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 and essential oils that relax and sooth the nervous system, easing mental and emotional strain. And the warm moisture derived from the mixture cleans the pores and moisturizes the skin in order to keep the skin clean and prevent breakouts.
Using herbs like this in an herbal bath allows the essential oils from the plants 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 effect since 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, use closer to 10 drops. The water should be warm, not hot, comfortable enough to submerge your body. I want you to feel as much relaxation as possible, 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. Repeat weekly.
PS - I welcome the opportunity to get to know you better, so if you have any questions, or just want to say "Hi", please come over to see me on Facebook. I would love to converse face-to-face.
