If bathing were an Olympic sport I’d no doubt be a gold medalist. From perfecting the water temp and maximising my immersion-time-without-wrinkles, to creating the best mood lighting and bath-reading techniques, I’m definitely at elite competition level.
But with any great talent, also comes great responsibility, so it’s only fair I share my fave bath-time treats with you, beauties!
Best for bubbles: Abhana Bath Foam
Make like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and immerse yourself in a luxurious bath of bubbles (rich sugar daddy optional extra). Available in a variety of flavours to suit your mood.
Best for hydration: Pure Fiji Coconut Milk Bath Soak
For a soak that smells so good you’d want to drink it (if it wasn’t your bath water that is), you can’t go past this ultra-nourishing milk. Pour in a quarter of a cup to your tub and you’ll be instantly transported to a tropical island!
Best for relaxation: Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Relaxing Bath Tablets
Who needs headache pills when you can pop one of these tablets into your bath and soak your stresses away? And don’t be alarmed if your water turns blue – it’s just the sea algae extracts doing their work!
Best for re-engergising: Botanics of Australia Revitalizing Bath Butter with Lemon Aspen
Who says a bath can’t gear you up for the day ahead? Dissolve a bit of this rich cream into the water, wait for the fresh lemon scent to fill the room and you’ll feel revitalised in minutes.
Best for sore muscles: AHAVA Dead Sea Bath Crystals
Packed with minerals from the Dead Sea, these wonder salts have proven therapeutic properties guaranteed to alleviate any aches and pains. Add to running water for best results.
Best for soothing: Aveeno Active Naturals Shower & Bath Oil
Sensitivity sufferers splash around with this fab buy that soothes and improves skin concerns such as dryness, flakiness and eczema. It also works wonders on sunburn for those (hopefully rare!) times when sun protection slips your mind.
