There’s hardly anything more inviting than a warm bath enhanced with essential oils and bath salts, especially after a long day. Light the candles, start your playlist, but before you slide into the water, consider adding one more step that will make your bath soak even more indulgent: a rejuvenating facial mask. This combination of treatments is meant to be enjoyed together for the ultimate self-care experience.
Bathing and Masking: A Perfect Pair
Here are some of our favorite bath soak and mask combinations. Mix, match, rotate, and discover new pairings for yourself.
Relax and Unwind
We recommend this relaxing bath soak to release the stress of the day and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Run the water a bit later in the evening when your body is ready to let the worry of the day drift away.
Add lavender essential oils and skin-soothing oatmeal to the tub to create a gentle, calming mixture. Keep the room dimly lit with candles and play soothing background music.
Apply a soothing, calming mask that will help relieve the symptoms of stress that show up on the skin, such as redness, puffiness, and dullness. Look for all-natural formulas with hyaluronic acid and replenishing oils.
Rebalance and Renew
Feeling emotional? Fatigued? When we feel out of balance on the inside, very often, we can see the signs of it on our faces. To restore balance to your mind as well as your skin, try this detoxifying bath and face mask combo.
For the bath, shake in Epsom salt and a cup or two of apple cider vinegar. This natural, multi-use remedy is excellent at rebalancing the skin’s Ph levels and helps to address breakouts, soothe irritation, and treat excessive dryness.
For the mask, opt for something cleansing and clearing. Look for a collagen sheet mask or hydrogel mask with a powerful detoxifying agent such as activated bamboo charcoal. Bamboo charcoal acts like a magnet, attracting dirt and other environmental stressors trapped within your pores and pulling it all out for skin that is renewed and rebalanced.
Rejuvenate and Rejoice
Whoever said that we needed any reason to take a bath? Soaking in the tub “just because” is as valid a reason as any! A little self-care is the perfect way to uplift and energize any time you need a little pick-me-up. During a rejuvenating bath session, focus on things that make you feel alive, happy, and sexy!
For your bath, first, create a simple hydrating syrup by mixing a few cups of water with organic honey until the honey dissolves. Add a hydrating almond or oat milk and pour into a warm bath and soak up all the nourishing, moisturizing benefits for skin that is invigorated and supple.
If you really want to feel super fancy, try a face mask infused with precious gemstones such as the Diamond Radiance face mask by KNESKO. Made with GEMCLINICAL® technology and charged with Reiki healing energy, these masks are the perfect complement to any rejuvenating bath soak and face mask combo treatment. All diamond face masks are made with marine collagen and pure diamond powder for skin that is noticeably brighter, glowing, and energized.
