3 DIY Recipes for a Cooling Summer Bath

cooling-summer-bathMost of us associate bathing with cold and winter days but we forget that swimming in the sea is the most natural version of a salt bath, and who doesn’t like that? 

The skin and body has different needs in the hot weather so the role of the bath has to change too.

As in the winter we want to warm our skin up and detox, in the summer it’s important to cool the body and soothe the skin.

Hydration is very important, therefore any ingredients need to reflect this as well.

Good things to add would be aloe vera gel, milk, honey, peppermint or tea tree essential oils to hydrate the skin and soothe.

It’s important to remember about hydration and cooler temperature of water which should be closer to our natural body temperature like 35-37 degrees instead of 38-41 degrees during winter.

Finally, there are certain substances that should be avoided like acids or citrus essential oils as they can make your skin more sensitive to UV rays.
