A Bath Fit for a Queen
To prepare for your special spa day, it’s imperative to set the tone. Nothing can be quite as relaxing as a candlelit bath. To ensure your bath is the ultimate in relaxation, start with the lighting. Forget the overhead lights and use your aromatherapy candles around the bathroom to create a romantic glow. Relaxing music is also a must, just keep your music player safely tucked away from any water source. Drop your favorite bath fizzy into the tub as the water is running and you are set for a great soak.
De-stress in the bath while using your face and hair masks, luxuriating with moisturizing body washes. Allow the chaotic rush of your everyday life to fade away.
After your delicious, energizing bath, when you emerge feeling fresh faced and impossibly relaxed, be sure to baby your skin with your favorite moisturizer, taking the time to massage the lotion into your muscles. Wrap up in a warm, fluffy robe and slip your feet into an exquisitely soft pair of sheepskin slippers to ensure your feet feel as good as the rest of you.
Spend the remainder of your day of rest curled up with an enjoyable book, guilt-free as you sip your favorite drinks and indulge in your favorite chocolates or other palate pleasing treats. This day is all about you. Tomorrow you can face your madcap world again, completely recharged and ready to go.
