These decadent tub strategies can turn an ordinary soak into an enchanting, tension-relieving, spa-like experience.
- Submerge your ears. Its an ideal way to destress and chill out. You can hear your heart beat and breathing which can lead to a calming meditative experience.
- Save your soles (or his) with a watsu stroke. Watsu, a form of muscle-relaxing shiatsu massage that is performed underwater. Try it on your feet by using your thumb to press small circles from the base of your toes to your heels.
- Follow a 20 minute soak with a quick shower. A cool rinse is a great time to slough off those skin cells that have softened in the tub and also the cool water will stimulate your immune system.
- Multitask with a mask. before you get into a warm bath, apply a thick layer of clay face mask, and place a washcloth in a bowl of cool water near your tub. The bath's hot steam will help the mask absorb, and after 10 minutes, use the cool cloth to wipe away the clay and refresh your skin.
