Who likes to take a bath?

I love taking baths and hope that you’re like me. Who doesn’t like to spoil themselves for a while. I’m all about baths. I’m even planning to buy a house just because it has a spacious tub, isn’t that silly. Well call me silly because I want that tub. I want all the spoiling I’ll give myself in it.

When I shop for my bath product I always go for bath sets. Why? Because they give you neat things to play with and enjoy when spoiling yourself and taking a bath. 

This time we’ll talk about Ginger Baths. Ginger is a rhizome, an underground stem commonly confused as a root, that originated in the southern part of China. It has been found that ginger is very rich in antioxidant, which is used in skin care products. Antioxidants helps prevent damage to the skin, and it can be apply topically to help damage skin. Also, ginger is invigorating and moisturizing, and has been used for anti-inflammatory treatments. So good news, when we are having a stressful day accompanied with a puffy-face we can treat ourselves to a delicious ginger therapy spa at the comfort and expense of our home.

For that special day, buy a ginger bath set. Start preparing your bath. For a very cold day there’s noting better than a warm bath. Pour some bubble bath soap and salt. When you are ready to take your bath add the bath fizzers, if available. Use every single sponge and massager that’s in your basket. You have to spend quality time with yourself. For your face we can use this recipe. Prepare this mask before your bath and while enjoying yourself apply the mask. You have to get:

¼ cup of fresh ginger
2 teaspoons of sugar
Juice of ½ lemon
4 tablespoons of water

In a food processor or a blender process the fresh ginger, the lemon juice, and water. Blend until you have a paste with a smooth consistency. Before applying the ginger mask, add the sugar to the mix. Apply the mask, avoiding the eyes, and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Gently massage for a few minutes before rinsing. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. Apply your daily face lotion and some of that body lotion that came with your bath set , and you are set to go.

After this spa treatment you’ll feel more relax and invigorated. Like a new born person. So enjoy and nice bath.
