Want to take the stress out of your beauty regime? Then why not run a relaxing bath and let the bubbles beautify you as you soak.

The health benefits of bathing aren't to be underestimated.

Bathing in warm water opens up pores and cleanses your skin from the inside out, leaving you soft and supple.

The hot water also helps to lift out harmful toxins, so your skin is fresh and gorgeously clean.

A soak in the tub also lowers blood pressure, plus the increase in blood circulation improves all bodily systems by increasing the rate of nourishing blood cells to damaged tissue.

Here are some beauty bath goodies to try:

Weleda Chestnut Toning Bath Soak

Enriched with horse chestnut and arnica, this toning soak promises to help loosen taut muscles, improve circulation and ease tired limbs. It also supports natural recuperation from tiredness and fatigue.

Cowshed Udderly Gorgeous Bath Salts
