Bathing and Your Beauty

There was a pries in Bavaria who once said "Water contains healing powers." Whether or not you believe this to be true, you've got to admit that water does have a marvelous capacity for stimulating lazy circulation. Better circulation means a better blood supply, a better blood stream rich in all the nourishment that your body needs.

Water is, moreover, the only thing that can soften your skin. Dried calloused skin will remain so if it is soaked in oil; soaked in water, however, it will soften.

Every woman owes it to herself to spend a little time on her body every day. Make bathing your daily ritual.

Whenever you bathe, make sure that bath water is either tepid or a little warm. Ideally, bath water should be at a temperature just a little above body temperature. A hot bath is weakening; it is also hard on your heart and skin, while a cold water bath constricts blood vessels.

We need soap and water to cleanse our bodies while bathing. Unfortunately, however, while removing dust and dirt from our bodies, we also remove natural body oils with it.

Like the skin on your face, the skin on your body also needs nourishing. Just as you need to nourish and moisturize your facial skin each time you wash it, always remember to give your body a moisturizing massage when you come out of the bath. In winter (and especially if your skin tends to be even a little dry) always add a few drops of bath oil to your bath water.
