Why bathing regularly is important

Some people don’t take a bath every day. While there’s tons of conflicting advice about how often you should be bathing, this group might have it right. It may sound counterproductive, but a bath every day could be bad for your skin. Some dermatologists only recommend bathing every other day, or two to three times a week. Many people take a bath at least once a day, either in the morning or at night before bed. Depending on the day and your activity level, you might even take two or three baths. There’s no arguing the importance of personal hygiene. But while some people take a bath every single day, in many cases it doesn’t have to be a part...

Food for healthy skin

Looking to make your skin its best? Along with smart habits -- like wearing sunscreen every day -- check out what's on your plate. From fighting free radicals to smoothing fine lines, some types of foods are packed with the good stuff for glowing skin.

How to create your own detox bath

Carving out alone time to de-stress, unwind, and meditate in our busy schedule can be tough. Balancing family, work, and relationship obligations leaves little time to “indulge.” But allowing our bodies (and minds!) time to rest and rid themselves of toxins is essential to staying healthy.

We expose ourselves to toxins on a daily basis, from sources like pollution, processed foods, and pesticides. And when we don’t release these toxins, it’s reflected in our health and the way we feel throughout the day. That is why creating a detox bath for yourself...

Bathing and its mental health benefits

The older you get the more stressed you get. Whether it is from work, school, or the environment we live in. Every one of us gets stressed and from time to time, our mind needs a break from all of this. Some of will choose to go out for a vacation day to maybe remove the stress from our body. Others choose a spa day to detox your body from toxins. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to take a whole day of break from everything. So why not just take a bath to help release the mental stress or negativity you have been absorbing all day? If you think that taking a bath will not help your mental health, well...

Prepare your body for summer

It’s begun. Ads, magazine articles, and social media posts related to the topic of “getting in shape” for your summer body. All these posts telling us how our bodies should look and that “healthy eating” and “exercise” isn’t enough until we get the ideal “beach body.” As far as I’m concerned, these ads are playing on our insecurities and what society tells us is “beautiful.” They are trying to sell us their diet product (by the way, the diet industry is a 60-billion-dollar industry) or wanting us to purchase some sort of exercise plan. All so we can get in shape, be healthy and look good. Well, first of all, health comes in many different shapes and sizes. Expending too...
