5 Ways to Make Your Bath Better Than Ever 5 Ways to Make Your Bath Better Than Ever 5 Ways to Make Your Bath Better Than Ever

There’s nothing like a long, relaxing bath at the end of a hectic week instead of your usual quick shower. If you’re taking the time to treat yourself, you should pull out all the stops. Whether it’s a 10-step skin care routine or a few hours parked in front of the television, everyone has their own way to de-stress and relax. After all, we could all use a little pampering. And when it comes to your bath there are some serious upgrades to make. This is your guide to getting the most out of bath time, with the help of face masks, hair masks, and more.

Bath Improvement #1: Smooth on Face Masks and Hair Masks

You should treat yourself before you even step foot in the bathtub. While the water’s filling up, start with masks. First, the L’Oréal EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask. After a quick shampoo, put your wet hair in the cap and secure. Next, use a facial cleanser to wash your face before applying the L’Oréal Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, which is perfect for dull and tired skin.

Masking while you bathe is the perfect way to treat your complexion and your hair while the rest of your body soaks. This is also the perfect time to get your bath ambience all set up. Light some candles, turn on a soothing playlist, and get yourself in the mindset for peak relaxation.

Bath Improvement #2: Try Different Bath Products

Soaking up bubbles is your time to relax, and there are a lot of different ways to make your bath therapeutic. First, the aroma. Use a scented bath product to take your bath to the next level. As far as the products go, there’s no limit to the options out there. From bath bombs to bubble bars to bath oils, each of which is available in a myriad of shapes, smells, and sizes, there’s sure to be something out there that suits your bath time needs. Whether you want to try a cute holiday-themed shape or a bath bombs that makes your bath look like the ocean, you’ll be sure to have almost as much fun creating your perfect bath as you will relaxing in it.

Bath Improvement #3: Bring an Activity

For some people, laying in a tub doing nothing can actually be more stressful than not. If that’s the case for you and you want to find a way to be productive while relaxing, either find a book—a summer beach read or guilty pleasure, of course—to read or listen to your favorite podcast.

Bath Improvement #4: Go all out with your body routine

There’s no better time to pamper every inch of your skin than when you’re in the tub. That means shaving your legs, doing a body scrub, or even using a scalp scrub (if you chose not to do a hair mask) while in the tub. Like we said before, if you’re taking the time to take care of yourself, go all out. You know you deserve it.

Bath Improvement #5: Shower off

Taking a post-bath shower will help rinse off any salts or oils that are still on your skin as well the face mask and hair mask you put on earlier. Finish washing your hair while showering and once you’re squeaky clean it’s time to moisturize. Apply lotion onto wet skin and pat to dry. Wet skin absorbs things more easily than dry skin, so moisturizing right after your bath will ensure a deep hydration for your body.

Editor’s tip: Once you’re out of the shower, it’s a prime time to moisturize your face too! Apply a night cream, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask to end your night on the right note.

After that, wrap yourself up in a fluffy robe while you comb your hair and finish your skin care routine. Leave your candles burning and the soothing music on—it’ll feel just like a day at the spa. Speaking of which, here’s How to Have an At-Home Spa Day with Our Face Masks
