For many of us, our daily washing is done in the shower, but the time spent in the bath is when we take a little longer to unwind and pamper ourselves. Baths are great for relaxing muscles, making us sleepy before bed and generally washing away the stresses of the day, so we thought we’d introduce you to some of Elemis’ bath and body products to make your bathing experience even better:
Hot water by itself will do a pretty good job of soothing your muscles, but this Aching Muscle Super Soak from Elemis increases the effect by using powerful aromatherapy deep heat treatment which relieves aching muscles and joints after exercise and physical work. It’s great for easing period pains, swelling and stiffness and even boosts a sluggish circulation to improve healing.
Bathing is the perfect first step of exfoliation, as it helps to soften dry, dead skin cells, ready for removal. The Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush is made from natural cactus bristles which help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation and softening the skin. Regular brushing can stimulate the flow of the lymph glands and reduce swelling in the hands and feet.
This oil is designed to work as part of an anti-cellulite routine and is ideal for application after a bath (and a thorough brushing with the product we mentioned above!). It contains a powerful synergy of sea buckthorn, sea fennel, lemon and juniper, which combine to nourish, detoxify and stimulate the skin, help to smooth the appearance of cellulite and can even combat the build-up of toxins caused by poor diet, stress and lack of exercise.
If the aim of your bathing is more to energise yourself, then this scrub from Elemis is perfect for you. The peppermint scent invigorates the senses and gently cleanses and smooths the body, whilst removing tired skin cells. It removes dead skin cells and deep cleanses whilst gently stimulating the skin and is especially effective on problem areas such as feet, knees and elbows.
As well as doing an incredible job of buffing the skin to exfoliated perfection, the combination of ingredients in this Salt Glow actually helps to stimulate your metabolism, making it great if you’re focusing on diet and exercise, or even if you’re just feeling a little sluggish. It also improves skin absorption, meaning that any other products you use on your skin will be even more effective than usual.
