Bathing, like eating, is one of those few necessary tasks in life that can actually be enjoyable to do when done right. You need to bathe to maintain cleanliness in your personal hygiene. You can either approach bathing as a task wherein you don’t pay particular attention to the products you use. You just go in the bathroom to cleanse yourself and that’s it. On the other hand, you can approach bathing as a luxurious activity. You pamper yourself with perfumed and scented baths and you take long soaks in the tub full of foam and bubbles.
If you fit the latter description, then good for you for enjoying one of the finer yet often taken-for-granted things in life. However, if you fit the former description, it’s time to look at a bath differently and find out what you’ve been missing all along.
One good way to start enjoying bathing is to use natural bath soaps instead of mass-produced synthetic ones. Natural bath soaps glide better on the skin during bathing, and they leave the skin smoother and softer after rinsing because they contain only organic ingredients. You not only get to enjoy your bath more, you even get beautiful and youthful-looking skin in the process.
Answer to Dry Skin
You may want to try milk bath soap in particular especially if you’re suffering from dry skin. It’s also a good soap to use in the winter time during which your skin is more prone to itchiness and flaking. Milk provides enough moisture to your skin without leaving it greasy. It’s a good alternative to oils if you find them too heavy on your skin.
Smell Good for Less
If you’re more particular on smelling good, you can go for a perfumed bath soap containing fragrant oils and herbs. Because it is handmade, you can be sure that you won’t smell like everyone else. In fact, you can even concoct your own trademark scent by making your own soap. There’s no need to for overpriced soaps and perfumes just to smell good.
Having Fun with Your Bath
How about being more fun and playful? Square and round soaps are boring, especially when you can buy customized soaps shaped according to whatever you want. If you don’t want to buy, you can always make them—all you need are molds that are designed to have the shape you want your soaps to have. You can go for hearts, stars, spirals, and even weird geometrical shapes. Shaped bath soaps also make perfect gifts to the people you care for.
