How to Choose the Right Bath Salts
There aren’t many better feelings than sinking into a warm bath at the end of a tough day. Whether it’s been a long day at work or you’ve pushed yourself through an intense workout, a bath can be incredibly rewarding, especially with the addition of bath salts.
Bath salts can enhance your wellbeing routine, making sure you have precious time to yourself whether you need to unwind or re-energise your body. They are full of natural minerals to cleanse and restore your skin and tired muscles, resulting in a spa-like experience in your own home.
Bath salts can come in a variety of different forms, perfectly suited to specific needs so you can better look after your mind and body; there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to caring for yourself! So, how do you choose the right salts for the occasion?
If you’re feeling stressed
Busy schedules can result in feeling stressed and burnt out, which has only been exacerbated over the last 12 months by Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions. It’s important to find your own way of de-stressing and taking a time out, even if it’s just for an evening. Taking some time back for yourself can help your mind to rest and gives you the chance to make sense of the things that are leaving you feeling uneasy.
Our Mindful bath salts are designed to restore some balance and calm in the midst of your busy week. Using a combination of both Epsom salts to relax your muscles, and Himalayan salts to cleanse your skin, ingredients also include frankincense and bergamot essential oils, along with CBD to create a tranquil bathing experience.
Our review panel revealed that 84% of people who used Mindful bath salts felt less stressed afterwards. Why not try meditation while you’re bathing, creating the ultimate stress-free zone?
If your skin needs some TLC
Your skin can be incredibly sensitive to the world around it. Some chemicals in cosmetics products may irritate your skin, with stronger chemicals sometimes stripping it of its natural moisture, so it could be beneficial to choose products with natural ingredients. If you have particularly sensitive skin, or you experience flare-ups of eczema or psoriasis, it’s important to find the right products that can cleanse and soothe your skin.
Specialist, natural salts are rich in nutrients that can help the skin’s natural barrier to work effectively. Dead Sea salts in particular have an abundance of magnesium and potassium, both of which can help you achieve soft and healthy-looking skin. Dead Sea salts are renowned for supporting natural skin healing, soothing and restoring skin, so if you’re looking for natural relief and some TLC for your skin, give this a go.
If you’re aching after exercise
Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or you’re a professional athlete, the aches and pains after exercising can be very uncomfortable. For your muscles to relax, three minerals are needed: magnesium, potassium and calcium. Without good levels of these minerals, you might experience spasms, tension and soreness. Magnesium in particular is responsible for over 300 actions in the body, while sulphate can help to detoxify the body and help it recover after exercise.
Together, magnesium sulphate is a powerful combination for recovering your muscles. Epsom bath salts have been used for years to help athletes of all levels relax and prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). The natural magnesium and other minerals found in Epsom bath salts soothe tired, aching muscles, making these salts a crucial part of many leading athlete’s routines when training for large events.
To elevate your recovery process even further, our Recover bath salts combine the power of Epsom salts with eucalyptus essential oil and white willow. These ingredients create a fragrant scent that can help you feel revived and relaxed.
If your skin needs a refresh
Everyone deserves a pampering session now and again, with the chance to refresh your skin and take care of it. Your skin can be affected by a number of different triggers, from your mental health to your hormones. Treat yourself to a refreshing bath at the start or the end of your day, as part of a healthy skin routine.
The right bath salts can help to elevate your bath, providing the perfect environment to cleanse your skin.
