How Bathing Can Improve Your Health
Taking a cold bath in the morning can prepare you for a whole day’s work. Taking a warm bath in the evening can prepare you for a good night’s sleep. More than the temperature and cleansing of the body, do you know why your body reacts this way from bathing and do you know the other benefits of bathing?
Taking a warm bath can open up your pores and help the body easily flush out harmful toxins. These open pores can also cleanse your skin and when you put on moisturizers, your skin will be more receptive to them. According to studies, soaking in a warm bath for at least 20 minutes can help you lower your blood sugar level by up to 14%. A warm bath can also help relax your muscles and joints and relieve you of the common symptoms of flu and stress.
You can have an aromatherapy bath by adding drops or aromatherapy oil in your bath. Adding a few drops of jasmine can relax your mind while keeping it focused at the same time. A few drops of chamomile can relieve you of anxiety and stress and consequently let you sleep better. To double the skin care benefits of bathing, while your skin is more susceptible to accepting nutrients, infuse milk in your bath to get baby soft and baby smooth skin.
Soaking your feet in cold water can drop your blood sugar levels as well as your overall body temperature and prepare you for sleep. The changes in the bath products manufacturers are selling obviously show that bathing does much more than cleansing. There are soap bars that offer moisturizing benefits, some offer skin whitening benefits, some offer antibacterial properties, some include milk content in the soap, and others have scents that offer different benefits – whether to calm and soothe or to rejuvenate.
With exciting products, bath related products are also considered trendy yet practical to give as gifts such as for colleagues during Christmas or during special occasions such as weddings as bath wedding favors. Expect this industry to continuously offer more innovations as bathing and its health benefits are becoming more and more known to people. So next time you take a bath, know that its benefits are more than skin deep, and that bathing daily can improve your skin, your looks, your health, and ultimately, your overall well-being.
