There’s nothing overly indulgent about letting yourself slip into a fragrant, scented bath from time to time, especially if those 10-15 minutes you have in the shower every day are among your only chances to really relax all day. If you’re feeling over-stressed and over-worked, make it a priority to carve out some time in your day for a luscious bath.

This would require you to put your regular shower gels and body soaps away and replace them with something a bit more, shall we say, exotic? Bubble baths, bath oils, bath bombs as well as salts and pearls are all among the numerous items you can indulge in after a long day of work.

Using a mixture of said ingredients isn’t an altogether bad idea, either. A good helping of bath salts added to your moisturizing bath oil or bubble bath will be the perfect way to help exfoliate your skin and heal any imperfections, while the soothing properties of the latter will nourish your skin and give it a healthy, hydrated glow.

Don’t forget to invest some thought into the mood you create. If you’re going to carve out some time in your day for a relaxing bath, you might as well make it count with some music, candles and all the fixings.
