Decadent Winter Bath-time Routines To Indulge Your Skin While You Soak


Warm up this winter with beauty rituals that elevate your bath time to a ‘scentual’ art form. 

We all know the power of a good bath. Sinking into that foaming, fragrant tub after a long day does literal wonders for the nervous system.

But what if, apart from the emotionally and physically cleansing benefits, the humble bath also added power to your beauty routine?

Humans have been taking languid baths since Adam and Eve discovered they were naked, and kween Cleopatra took it to the next level by submerging in litres of milk for her skin smoothing routine.

Thankfully, you don’t need to buy out the daily isle at Coles to get similar skin boosting benefits, because the following modern bath-time finds will leave you more glowing, scrubbed and rejuvenated that the most regal of Egyptian queens.

 


REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil

You will feel like you’re floating in rose petals with this decadent bath oil that softens, moisturises and leaves a delicate scent on the skin. Known as the Queen of flower oils, Rose Otto is one of the world’s most precious essential oils. Rose Oil’s exquisite scent is also known for its stress relieving and soothing properties, this bath oil will leave your skin ever so soft and your mind relaxed. The oil also feels weightless and leaves no greasy traces on the skin, that can be common in heavier winter creams.

 

OUAI HAIRCARE Scalp & Body Scrub

Even though the tub is a space to relax, we love a multi-tasking product. Thus, this literal head-to toe-scrub nails two beauty birds with one stone (or shall we say, granule): perfect after a long soak to soften the skin, both your scalp and body will drink up this nourishing concoction. Ouai Haircare calls this a “weekly detox for your hair and skin”, thanks to a blend of probiotics and sugar crystals to buff away impurities, balance natural bacteria levels and reveal fresh, radiant and softer skin.With a rich texture and gorgeous fragrance, you’ll feel like you’re indulging in a salon body treatment at home. The granules work beautifully to exfoliate the skin, relax the scalp and leave you feeling baby-soft, soothed and supple.

Josie Maran Cosmetics Unscented Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter 

If you love to experience the decadence of a rich cream in winter (and frankly, who doesn’t?) this post-bath perfection will nourish you through the cooler months.  Composed of 100% pure argan oil spun into a rich, creamy butter, it’s lightweight and fast-absorbing yet intensely nourishing. Infused with shea butter, avocado oil and antioxidant-rich white tea extract to repair dry, damaged skin and fight free radicals.

KORA Organics – Essential Body Wash

Get ready to indulge in some aromatherapy, because any stresses will literally melt away the second you inhale this delicious, aromatic blend of organically sourced Essential Oils, Ylang Ylang, Noni Extract, Sandalwood, Rose and Patchouli.  Free from Parabens and skin irritants, you’ll be doing good for both your skin and your soul. Both cleansing and hydrating, this gorgeous wash is perfect to substitute for a bubble bath, or froth up on your loofah to invigorate and  provide the skin with all over anti-oxidant protection.


 

Ovvio Organics Soft Bristle Dry Body Brush 

We’ve all heard of dry body brushing, but what does it actually do? According to leading naturopath and Ovvio Organics founder Anthia Koullouros, dry brushing can help you effectively remove dead layers of skin and other impurities, rejuvenate the nervous system, contribute to healthier muscle tone, help to regulate body temperature and prevents premature ageing!

This natural dry brush, with a detachable handle, is made with natural fine boar bristles to softly stimulating fibre tones and cleanses the skin.
