Soothing Soak

Basin bath salts stationImage by Theme Park Mom via FlickrA relaxing soak at the end of a hard day can be one of life's pleasure, life is stressful but a soothing soak with some few ingredients you can turn your tub into a mini-spa.

Bath oil- If you have dry itchy skin especially during the winter months, you can add a few drops of baby oil which is very economical or any bath oil, skin so soft by Avon or other  that you may have for about 10 to 15 minutes. Just make sure to be very careful as the oil will make the bath tub slippery so sit on a mat and be very careful getting out of the tub. ( If you have a skin condition please consult with a physician before)

Bath Salts-If you have hard water you can add 1/2 cup of table salt, baking soda and your favorite bath salt to your bath water. This helps make the water much softer.

Vinegar- You can add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to a few inches of warm water make sure its not hot in the bath water. The slightly acidic solution helps to rise away soap residue that are left behind and can irritate sensitive skin.

There are many other products out there in the market that you may want to try just make sure that you are not allergic to the ingredients used.
