Salts – Epsom and sea salts help detoxify skin. If you tend to have oily skin, or your feet always seem too “hard”, adding salts to your bath will surely help take care of the problem.

Essential Oils – This can be anything from lavender oil for relaxation, to lemon oil for invigoration, but add a few drops to the tub while the water’s running and the scents will take care of all your needs.

Honey – Cleopatra knew of the joy of honey way back in the day, and nothing’s changed. I know that these days it’s a little more expensive, but honey’s great for soothing irritated skin, softening, and detoxifying. (Tip: Use honey especially when you’re using oils in the tub, and it will keep the oil from sitting on the surface of the water! Mix them together before adding to the water.)

Mineral Oil, Olive Oil or Baby Oil – SUPER soft skin on the way when you drizzle a little of any of these oils into your bath water. Use caution, because you don’t need too much, and the more you use, the less bubbles you’ll get should you choose to add them.

Bath Fizzies - Whether you purchase them or make them yourself, bath fizzies/bath bombs add soft bubbles and can release wonderful aromas and essential oils into your bath.

Milk. Yes, milk. – It’s actually best to use milk powder, but milk has VERY cooling, soothing effects on skin. If your skin is super sensitive, or you spent a little too long in the tanning bed, milk will help take care of what ails you.

What are some of your favorite things to add to the tub before you enjoy a nice, relaxing bath?

    Most http://www.42room.com/nfl-jerseys-c-8.html nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys display the team’s primary logo in the centre of the chest, while some also display secondary logos on the shoulders. Each player in a team’s lineup for a game must have a different number displayed on the back of their jersey, as well as the player’s surname above their number on the back of their jersey. While not required, teams typically place their numbers on each upper arm as well. Team captains and alternate captains wear the letters “C” and “A” respectively on the front of their jerseys. Jerseys have a loop of fabric sewn into the inside jersey back, called a “fight strap” or “tie-down”, which must be secured to the player’s pants during a game, to prevent the jersey from being pulled over the player’s head in a fight.
