DIY Beauty: Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Baths

These baths are fun, easy, and above all else, amazing for you. All one does is chooses a favorite tea: It could be green, white, chamomile, peppermint, spearmint, etc. and puts one tea bag into a tub of warm water when it's still filling up. Now mind you that caffeine can be absorbed through the skin, so if you want a gentle pick-me-up, then go for a green or white. The caffeine and antioxidants will soak into the bloodstream through the skin, and leave it feeling soft, plump, and revitalized. Also, the tannins will tighten the skin and help diminish wrinkles over time. Non-caffeinated teas will do the same thing. So depending on if it's early or late in the day, or if caffeine is just not desired, choose the tea accordingly.

Second to this, one can also add beautiful fruit slices to the bath to infuse it with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. My favorites are apple, orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, strawberries, and melon. Depending on the season, choose which fruit appeals to you. Not only is this a wonderful form of aromatherapy, it's also a way to give your body extra nutrients to make your skin it's best. All of the wonderful vitamins and essential nutrients will infuse the bath water with what the skin loves. Just like the tea, they'll be soaked up through the skin and into the bloodstream. Over time, this ritual will soften skin and leave it glowing.

So give it a try! These baths are perfect anytime throughout the year. They can be cooling and refreshing during the warm months, and warming and soothing during the cold months. Make sure to soak for a minimum of 20 minutes, or for as long as desired. Let these plants do their magic, and enjoy the time off.

This luxurious form of pampering is also eco friendly because it's all natural. When the bath is over, use a bowl to collect the tea and fruit so that they can be easily composted and sent back to the earth. Either that, or the fruit can be used to freshen the kitchen as well by using it to clean the garage disposal. It's that simple!

Cheers and here's to happy, healthy living.

  1. Wow, this does look easy! So do you just cut up the fruit and stick it into the bath along with the tea bag?

    1. Yup! You can either leave it in there to steep more while bathing. It's quite the tranquil experience. Or you can take the fruit slices and tea out before you get in. It's completely up to you.
