How a Warm Bath Benefits Your Body Posted on 08 Jul 13:09 , 0 comments

Of all the ways to treat your body well, a warm bath is among the easiest and most beneficial.  

In addition to soothing tired, achy muscles, it can also help cure bouts of insomnia by relaxing you and raising your body temperature. Once you slip between the cool sheets of your bed, your body starts producing melatonin, which invites sleep.

 

A warm bath is a way to treat yourself well. Add a comfortable bath pillow, some luxurious bubble bath, soft music, and a good book for a relaxing retreat where the troubles of the world melt away. Water has a therapeutic quality to it and provides relief for a number of different health conditions including the common cold.

Hot water opens stuffy nasal passages and loosens tight muscles. Relaxing fully releases endorphins in the brain, which relieves the intensity of the pain you feel. If you add a few drops of essential oil to your bath, you benefit from the brain-boosting and stress-relieving qualities of sage, bergamot, and lavender.

Bathing in oils helps moisturize skin. It sloughs off dead cells, which often cause redness, dryness, and itchiness. Using a good moisturizer following a warm bath prevents skin from drying out further and causing discomfort.

The next time you want to treat yourself good, draw a warm bath, add some bubbles, and soak until your heart's content. Castle Rock Essentials' Bath Gift Set comes with an organic Blackberry Sage soap bar, bubble bath, and sugar scrub. It also has a comfortable, waterproof foam bath pillow.

It makes pampering yourself easy when you have all the right tools available for therapeutic soaking. So the next time you need a little luxury or healing, fill up the tub and climb right in. You'll soak your cares away in no time flat.


Tips for Keeping Your Summer Pedicure Looking Nice Longer Posted on 24 Jun 12:10 , 0 comments

Open toe shoes are a summer staple. With that being said, you better have a pedicure before leaving the house in sandals or flip flops. Because you’ll be spending so much time outdoors, it’s important to maintain your pedicure for as long as possible. You don’t want unpolished toes from wreaking havoc on your social life, now do you?

The following tips keep your summer pedicure looking nice longer:

  • Keep your feet smooth with a pumice stone. Between pedicures, remove dry and calloused skin with this handy tool. Instead of having rough looking feet, you’ll keep them pretty by tackling foot problems before they worsen.
  • Trim your toenails to keep them looking neat. Use sharp clippers and be careful not to chip your polish. Remember to do this frequently to avoid your toenails from growing long and causing your pedicure to go by the wayside.
  • Moisturize your feet. Hot weather has a tendency to dry out skin. Avoid this problem by slathering on the lotion whenever you can. Pay close attention to your cuticles. Apply cuticle oil after touching up your polish.
  • Don’t forget the top coat. This is what strengthens your nails and adds shine to your polish. Keep some on hand to apply after touch ups. That’s why it’s always recommended to bring your own polish to the salon. You’ll have it with you whenever you need to fix your pedicure.
