Is the summer heat getting to you? We know. And the worst part is that either your vacation is over or it can’t come soon enough so that you can cool yourself off in the sea. And who wants to drag themselves to the pool through this heat? So, how can you cool off? It’s simple – take a bath!
No, not the warm steamy one – we don’t want you to feel even hotter on this heat. Rather than that, we are giving you a step by step guide to taking the perfect summer bath at home to help you cool yourself off. Here is how to do it:
Step 1: Preparation is the key!
Take every product and accessory that you will need into a box and bring it with yourself into your bathroom. Making constant trips from the bath to your room because you want to use a product that you thought was already in the bathroom will only make you feel the heat even more.
So, instead of running around to gather your things in the middle of the bath, take the nearest empty box and fill it out with everything that you might need.
Extra Tip: Choose products that have a cooling effect to cool yourself off even further.
Step 2: Cold water is a must
A cold bath can help jolt your mind and immediately leaves you revived and ready. It sharpens your focus and helps you complete tasks more easily. Not only that, but it also makes your skin healthier! Read more here. For your cold bath, experts suggest the temperature to be somewhere between 20°C and 30°C.
However, if you need to cool off a bit more, then you can make the water a little colder than that. Soaking for at least 30 minutes into cold water won’t only make you feel cooler in the summer, but it will also reduce your core temperature, making your whole body colder.
The key is to relax. However, if your bathtub isn’t the most comfortable one, then we recommend to get yourself a bath pillow, and cool yourself off while you relax in your bath!
Step 3: Bringing out the luxury spa at home experience
If you’d like to give yourself the whole deal, then we have a few tricks to bring out the luxury spa experience at home, without causing extra heat.
Refreshing drinks only!
After your soak in the bath is done, all you need to do is wrap yourself in the soft embrace of your bath towel. However, don’t linger – especially if it’s a bulky one because that will only bring back the heat. Instead, use a thinner towel like a hammam towel to dry yourself off faster.
We hope you will enjoy your perfect summer bath at home!
