Taking a bath after a long and stressful day sounds fun but it can be boring at time. Especially when you do it all the time. But wait, there could be a fun way to take a bath. Experiment with trying to add beverages to your bath! It sounds insane but it is actually helpful. Not only you can have fun while doing experiments, finding out what are the other benefits of the beverages you are drinking to make you body healthy, but you can also relax in your bath once you find out which drinks can help your skin and your well-being. Let us find out which beverages are good to add in your bath, why you should try adding them in your bath, and how are you going to add them in your bath.
Lemon and Cucumber water. Everyone knows that lemon and cucumber water is a good way to detox your whole body. But this beverage is also good when you add it in your bath. Lemons contain vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, and are a source of plant compounds called flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Not only that, lemon also very little protein, fat, carbohydrate, or sugar, and it contains only trace amounts of other vitamins and minerals including potassium, folate, and some B vitamins. Cucumbers contain a range of vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients that might help prevent a variety of conditions, including cancer and diabetes, as well as keeping bones, skin, and muscles healthy. Cucumbers are high in antioxidants and other nutrients. By adding them to water, they make a glass of water more nutritious and antioxidant-rich. These are the antioxidants that are in cucumber: calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin A, and vitamin K. Proper hydration can help the body to flush out toxins and keep the skin healthy. Cucumbers are also rich in vitamin B, which can help with acne and other skin problems. Now that we know the benefits of both Lemon and Cucumber, all we have to do is add them in the bath water and soak in it for 15 to 20 minutes. For more relaxation, you can also add in a few leaves of Basil.
Tea bath. Drinking a cup of tea is soothing and it also have a few health benefits, such as detoxing your digestive system. It is also a good beverage to add in your bath water. Here are a few popular teas you can add in your bath:
Green tea. A popular choice for a bath soak, green tea can help reduce muscle pain. It’s also soothing and softening for the skin, helping to relieve redness. Because it’s loaded with antioxidants, a green tea soak can also have wonderful anti-aging effects, helping your skin to recover from environmental irritants.
Black tea. Black tea helps to reduce inflammation, making it a great tea to help soothe your skin and relax any irritated muscles. The tannins in black tea are also extremely cleansing and help to close pores, making this a great choice for a soak if you deal with any body acne. This also makes it helpful for reducing itching, making it an awesome choice if you’re dealing with bug bites, irritated skin, or sunburn, because it helps speed up the body’s healing process.
Peppermint tea. With a cooling effect on the skin, peppermint tea is naturally invigorating and rejuvenating. It also helps to open up nasal passages, easing any congestion you might be feeling and helping you to feel more revitalized. It can also help to reduce inflammation, soothing burned and irritated skin. When combined with Epsom salts, peppermint tea makes an incredibly detoxifying bath.Milk Bath. Taking a bath in milk is very common and very ancient. Even Cleopatra did it so her can be as glowing and as beautiful as ever. Milk baths are beneficial to moisturize the dry skin as milk contains fat and proteins that help to soften and soothe the skin. Lactic acid present in the milk can act as a natural exfoliator, which is beneficial for women over 65 years of age. While it might seem like just a wasteful decadence, there's actually a reason why milk is good for your skin. The lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, which helps cleanse the skin and release dead skin cells. That allows the skin to rejuvenate itself more quickly, resulting in radiantly glowing, satiny smooth and soft skin.
