There’s nothing better after a long, exhausting day than a relaxing bath. It’s a chance to decompress and forget about your worries from the day. But the benefits go beyond improving mental health; they also benefit your skin! Let’s take a look at the 4 different types of baths to draw to improve your skin after your tub installation.
The best way to soothe dry, itchy skin is by adding oatmeal to your bath. Because of its healthy fat content, it provides relief to any skin irritation. In addition, oats contain natural cleansers that clear pores of dirt and oil and proteins that restore moisture to the skin. Oatmeal also helps with bug bites, poison ivy, and sunburns, making it a perfect bath for both the summer and winter.
According to WebMD and Mayo Clinic, bleach baths can help lessen the symptoms of eczema. Adding a small amount of bleach to your bath can kill bacteria on skin, therefore reducing itching, redness and scaling, which are all painful symptoms of eczema. For a safe and effective bleach bath after your tub installation, the Mayo Clinic recommends adding ¼ cup to ½ cup of bleach to a 40-gallon bathtub filled with warm water and soaking for just 10 minutes. Make sure to apply a fragrance free moisturizer after your bath to replenish the moisture in your skin.
After a long day outside, whether you’re doing yard work or sunbathing, your skin is in need of a detox. Replenish your skin and feel refreshed with a baking soda bath bomb! Adding baking soda to your bath, fun bath bomb or not, is perfect for exfoliating, detoxifying and acne-fighting.
After your tub installation, the best bath ingredient to slow down the signs of aging is Epsom salt. Epsom salt is full of magnesium, which is a key component in anti-aging and bodily functioning. Just add 2 cups of Epsom salt to your bath up to 3 times a week, and you should start seeing results!
