“Bathscaping,” a term coined by trend forecasting company WGSN, reflects a trend developed during the lockdown, but represents something fundamental to all of us. For centuries, various cultures have associated the bath with more than the convenience of cleaning. It is linked to the ritual and the ceremony. It also transmits spirituality and this sense of belonging.
As more and more people found solace in their tubs, the act became an art. There are fascinating videos of bath bombs melting in water and the enchanting feeling of lighting a candle to set the mood in your bathroom. Fashionista reports that the trend that is gripping TikTok with one billion views is #shower, 426 million views for #bath, 206 million views for #showerroutine and 156 million views for #bathbomb.
I have always been a fan of the baths. After a long day, it’s this quick but satisfying reward. This is where one can find some peace and time for oneself without the worry or rush to the next task. We could accumulate a lot of bathscaping material, but I think we have to stick to the basics first.
Dr Teal’s Epsom salt baths are the first thing I turn to. Soaking in it for at least 20 minutes can “revitalize tired, sore muscles and help refresh the appearance of the skin.” All you need are two cups for easy relaxation. They come in a variety of scents to suit your mood, such as matcha green tea and shea butter and almond oil, as well as lavender, eucalyptus, and spearmint.
When you are sitting in your bath, you can duplicate a hair mask. I take the Sun Bum Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. Leave in your hair so it can restore essential moisture, smoothness and smoothness. It is made from amla and bamboo extract and is particularly suitable for colored hair.
In addition to that, I like to use a face mask. Belo Medical Clinics offers the FillMed hyaluronic youth mask from the laboratories. I’m a fan because it contains hyaluronic acid, collagen, and aloe vera. It will make your skin plump and hydrated.
Finish your bath with a good exfoliation. The one I like to reach is Frank Body’s. Their coffee scrubs are 100 percent natural and exfoliate gently. You can either choose the peppermint for an extra feeling of freshness, or the coconut, which reminds me of a fresh latte.
Of course, what is a good bath without a candle? Diptyque is still one of the best for luxury candles. Each of their candles and scents are carefully crafted to ensure the scent stays on without being too strong. It turns your bathroom into your private spa.
