Now maybe you're not a regular soaker and prefer the take long hot shower but there is something to be said for a good old soak. Plus there are some amazing benefits to getting some use out of your tub.

 

Soothe sore muscles

If you’ve overdone it on leg day or have a muscle cramp from not moving from a weekend long Netflix marathon then a warm bath is just what you need. Think of a warm bath as an allover heat pack that helps to relieve sore muscles while also relaxing them and improving flexibility. Take your bath to the next level by adding in some bath salts that contain Epsom salt such as MUD Muscle Mud Recovery Bath & Body Mask. Epsom salt contains Magnesium which is absorbed through the skin when added to water to ease muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints.

 

Encourage sleep

If you’re having trouble sleeping, try a bath before you go to bed. It works in two ways to encourage sleep. Firstly, it helps to relax your mind and body and secondly, the drop in temperate makes us sleepy. When your body temperature drops at night, it signals the body to start producing melatonin which is the hormone that helps us fall asleep. You can kick-start the drop in temperature by having a warm bath with MUD Original Mud Detox Bath & Body Mask, letting yourself cool down when you get out and then jumping in-between the sheets.

 

Smooth skin

When you soak in the bath, the warm water and steam help to open up the pores, leaving your skin clean, smooth & soft. Add in some hydrating bath products, like The Soak Life Salty Bath Soaks, to leave your skin feeling even more hydrated but try to avoid bubble baths as they generally contain soap or detergents that can dry out the skin. Since the pores will be open, this is also the perfect time to pop on a face mask.

 

Reduce Stress

A bath is a great stress reliever. The warm water will help you relax and make you feel safe. Take the time to light a candle, pop your phone on silent and leave it in another room and just focus on the now. Life is stressful and fast paced and we are constantly being bombarded with information so it’s more important than ever to take time out for yourself.

 

Reduce cold & flu symptoms

When you are feeling achy and stuffed up, there is nothing better in the world than a warm bath. The steam from the bath helps to clear out congestion and the warm water helps relieve sore and achy muscles. Add a couple of drops of an immune boosting essential oil such as lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, rosemary, tea tree and thyme or try the MUD Immunity Mud Recovery Bath & Body Mask.

 

So what are you waiting for? Go run that bath, kick back and chill, baby, chill.
