As well as facial skincare this week I thought I'd pop a post in about body skincare. Recently I've been getting back into baths - I think it has something to do with the fact that I'm doing a lot more exercise and baths just seem a whole hell lot more relaxing than showers. In the bath I feel like I have more time to focus on sorting out my skin as well.
When I'm in the bath I start off with cleaning my skin - I've been using Bayliss & Harding Skin Spa body wash. It smells amazing and incredibly fresh thanks to the basil in the scent. It's beautiful and so luxury. Next up I use L'Occitane Shower Oil - yes I know, shower oil and I'm in a bath. However, after exercise this is pure bliss. It warms upon application and instantly relaxes the muscles. It's perfect for moisture as well. A touch pricey but it's great. Next up, exfoliate! I cannot impress upon you how important it is to exfoliate your skin, it gets rid of all the dead skin cells and leaves your skin super super soft. My favourite is the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub - this smells absolutely incredible, so sweet and yummy. Enough to eat it - just don't! This leaves my skin amazingly soft and it helps not to encourage blemishes on my body as well. Lastly I do my face, which means one thing - face mask! I love doing this last because it means I can pop it on, then relax for ten minutes in my bath. My mask of choice is currently the Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minutes Mask, it's perfect for my skin at the moment and I love it.
Of course no bath is complete without a couple of candles, my one of choice at the moment (no photographed) is Bayliss & Harding's Strawberries and Cream candle. Sweet and gorgeous, I absolutely love it.
What's your bath routine?
