Detox baths are meant to help rid toxins from your body, through your skin, using heat, steam and other ingredients. They have also been said to be healing, good for the skin, helpful in aiding your immune system and more. While there isn’t a lot of scientific research to back up whether or not these really “work”, they have been around for centuries and still remain popular. I say, give it a try and decide for yourself if it’s something you want to incorporate into your life! I personally enjoy them.
There are many “recipes” you can follow for a detox bath. Various essential oils can always be added and make quite the difference. Here is one recipe I like to use.
- Drink lots of water during and after your detox bath! It is dehydrating.
- Keep a towel nearby as you will also sweat a lot (as if you were in a sauna!)
- Take it easy after the detox bath until you have your energy back. It is normal to feel quite tired.
- Don’t rinse off right away. Your skin might feel a bit tacky at first but if you’re going to rinse off, wait at least an hour.
