So now that fall is pretty much here, and winter isn’t far off, and if you enjoy a cozy night; you’ll be thrilled. There are plenty of ways that the colder seasons can bring joy and happiness; even if you’re mourning the loss of summer, you can still do the little things that will make the most out of the colder days and long, chilly nights. Taking some time to look after yourself and making an effort to get cozy in terrible weather will help to ensure your health and well-being are looked after, and you enjoy each day until spring arrives. There’s no better way to warm up and pamper yourself than with a hot bath; it’s the chance to ease your aching muscles after a stressful week, and indulge in some relaxation.
There a few things you can do to add some luxury and indulgence to your self care sessions and bath time, so sit back and get your notebook out. The following are some ideas and inspiration for those who want to take bathing up a notch and give themselves something to look forward to throughout the autumn and winter ahead.
Set the Scene
First, set the scene, and create an environment in which you’ll enjoy spending an hour or so (or less; it’s your bath time after all). Make sure you have a couple of fresh, soft towels warming up on your radiator so that there’s no chance of getting chilly when you step out of the bath. It’s also a good idea to lay out your warm, comfy clothes or pyjamas for after your bath so you can step out, dry off, and get dressed in warmth.
Ensure you have your favorite book or magazine, eyelid surgery videos (if that’s your thing) or classical music at the ready so that you can begin to enjoy your self care time as soon as you sink into the water. If you have a dimmer switch in your bathroom turn the lights down low, and enhance the setting with some candles, preferably scented options. You’re good to go, so step in and enjoy.
Grab the Pampering Essentials
Make the bath even more luxurious with bubbles, salts, and soaks. There are plenty of affordable options out there, so make sure to keep a few on hand, and you’ll end up smelling like a dream. The right bath milk, or bubble bath, will moisturize your skin and enhance the relaxing experience.
And don’t stop there. Make it even more indulgent and treat yourself to a hair or face mask. There are specialized masks for every skin issue or need. Use the internet to find the best masks in the market for your skincare needs. If you’re feeling creative: you could always spend an afternoon creating your own, so it might be worth looking for some recipes and writing a shopping list. So now you’re ready. Switch off your phone and go have a well-deserved soak.
