How to prepare a relaxing bath.
First you should look for a moment of the day in which we can be quietly with no prolems or responsibilities.
Fill the tub with water and introduce any oil, medicinal soap or bath salts that you like.
Heat the water until approximately 30 to 32 ºC, since at this temperature the steam produced by the hot water will open the pores of our skin, allowing an easier absorption of vitamins and minerals from the products combined with water.
Considerations to take into account.
To increase relaxation, we can turn off the bathroom light and instead light up with candles.
Music is important to achieve absolute relaxation, especially instrumental.
It is highly recommended that the duration of the relaxing bath does not last more than 30 or 40 minutes, since we could end up with weakening or fatigue.
After the bath, it is very advisable to give us a cold shower so that the pores of the skin close preventing of getting sick, as well as allowing us to adjust the temperature of the body with that of the environment.
You can complement the relaxing bath with the application of a relaxing oil or cream so that the skin stays hydrated for longer time period.
