MILK & HONEY BATH
Cleopatra, ruler of Eqypt and one of the most beautiful women to walk the earth, bathed in milk and honey. Arguably the best way to get soft, supple skin, all over your body. The lactic acid in milk is very exfoliating, while honey is very softening and moisturizing. The key is using "full fat" or powdered milk and pure honey.
How to take a milk and honey bath:
Pour 1-2 cups of milk (or 1/2 c. full-fat powdered milk) and 1/2 c. honey under running, warm water.
For best results: do a dry brush treatment before you escape into the tub.
While your wallet might not like a bath of Champagne, your body will love you for it. A Wine or Champagne Bath is insanely decadent and also a highly effective treat for every skin type. The polyphenols in red wine are incredible anti-oxidents and the tartaric acid in champagne lightens the skin and helps reduce discoloration and fine lines. Both red wine and champagne are also great for cleansing pores and then reducing their appearance. It may sound wasteful, but you can use wine or bubbles that have gone flat or bad, so don't throw out the party leftovers
that have been in the back of your fridge...bathe in them.
How to take a wine or champagne bath:
Simply pour a glass (or more) of red wine or champagne into your running bath.
Soak for 20 minutes.
I know what you are thinking...really? But getting back to bathing basics can make you feel like you just left the spa! It's been proven that your body actually soaks up the magnesium in epsom salts when you bathe in them. Magnesium relaxes you, soothes aching muscles, regulates blood pressure, and regenerates and heals skin cells. The Epsom Salts themselves, reduce swelling, heal bruises, and detoxify your system.
How to take an epsom salt bath:
Add 1-1/2 to 2 cups epsom salt to your running bathwater.
If desired, before adding the salt to your bath, drop in 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil to the epsom salts.
