Relaxation techniques: the power of a bath
Finding time to de-stress is key to keeping yourself feeling calm and ready for whatever life has to throw at you. Here are six ways a relaxing bath can help you unwind…
A few mindful minutes.
Lying in warm water can help you feel restored by providing a moment of calm for mind and body. After a long day, it’s the perfect place to mull over anything that’s been playing on your mind and will help set aside any worries you have. Try to practice slow breathing to create a sense of peacefulness and enjoy a few moments of soothing solitude
Helping recover after exercise.
After a tough workout, one of the best ways to feel relaxed and recovered is to treat yourself to a good old soak. Even 10 minutes could help to make you feel renewed – ready to face your next challenge
Skin care benefits.
Your bath combines relaxation and skin care. The steam from a bath helps loosen dirt and debris from pores, to help keep your skin looking beautifully clear. Try also adding in a gently exfoliating product, like Dove Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Cream Bar, which helps buff away dead skin while cleansing. Plus, the mild formula and ¼ moisturizing cream help to leave skin feeling soft and smooth
Preparing for bed.
A warm bath is a great relaxation technique for sleep, and we’re on board with anything that enhances our precious hours in bed. Our temperature naturally dips before our body is ready for sleep, so raising it slightly before you hop between the sheets allows a sharper drop, for a deeper sleep
And then there’s using a relaxing bath as an excuse for some me-time. To fully unwind, try playing soothing music and adding a beautifully scented product like Dove Shea Butter Beauty Cream Bar. Its rich lather and warm shea butter and vanilla scent will contribute to your indulgent atmosphere and help you feel relaxed and cared for in no time
Leaving skin beautifully scented.
Finally, a relaxing bath is the perfect way to leave your skin smelling gorgeous. Pick products that use scents you love. Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Wash with Coconut Milk and Jasmine Scent is beautifully scented to envelop you in comforting, warm fragrances while it gets to work cleansing and moisturizing your skin
