An intrepid quest to find the best....

Candles lit – not one but several. Hot st­eam rises off the water as clouds of fluffy lather float along the surface. Aromatherapy oils fill the air and have turned the water translucent. It’s 6:30am and I’m in the bathtub. Surrounded by complete and utter silence (and the best bath products) – this is my time.

When it comes to the tub we always assume long baths are the reserve of the evening. Sure, after a long stressful day in the office / running errands – delete where applicable – there is nothing better than a long soak in the tub. But there’s something about taking time for you in the morning that I am wholeheartedly embracing. Twenty minutes. That’s what we’re talking about.

I’ve always associated taking some me-time in the evening with guilt; that’s when I should be completing that tax return or finally unpacking that box from our move six months ago – generally anything on my life-admin list that seems to find itself to be low in priority. But it’s just twenty minutes, which is enough to get away with.

If nothing else, it seems fairly timely. Now that the clocks have gone back and we both leave the house and return in the dark – bath season is firmly upon us.

Best Bath Products 01

 

Best bath products: what to use:

Scrubs

From sugar and salt scrubs to scrubs that give your body a glow, gently exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal soft and smooth skin.

Oils and Moisturiser

Keeping your body moisturised throughout the year is important. In the winter the cold air leaves your skin dry whilst in summer all the exposure to the sun dehydrates your body. Body oils soak deep within the skin to leave it moisturised all day long.

Masks: face and hair

Try the Radiant Glow Express Mask from Sisley, the red clay leaves your skin with a radiant glow and it takes just 3 to 5 minutes. Why not try a hair mask too like this Intense Treatment Masque by Windle & Moodie which gives ultra softness to dry hair.

 

For sleep

Baths have been proven to help you get to sleep. It’s something to do with temperature. Your body heats up in the tub and followed by the rapid-cool down once you’re out that relaxes you and sends your body into sleep mode.

 

Effective time management

As much as we’d all love a few extra hours in the day, sadly that’s not going to happen. Anyone got Tempus on speed dial? So it’s all about effective time management.

Here’s a handy list of things to try while your bath is running:

  • Prepare your breakfast / lunch for the day
  • Meditate
  • Lay out your clothes for the day (if you haven’t already done this)
  • Pop those ingredients in the slow cooker and turn on.
  • Watch this GIF to reduce your anxiety

 

Crafting the perfect atmosphere

When it comes to crafting the ideal setting candles are firmly at the top of the list. We could wax lyrical about candles all day and therefore have adopted a more is more attitude. So why not get a few on the go? This classic like Feuille de Lavande by Diptyque which is full of fresh leafy notes which evoke calm or this Menthe & The by Kerzon candle which bursts with invigorating mint to get your senses going.
