10 Bath Time Essentials Perfect for Winter


No matter where you are, chances are it’s flipping freezing. The last thing you want to do is go outside and trek through the snow or high-powered winds. So if you find yourself home a few more nights than usual, why not make it all about you and soak in a decadent bath.

It’s one of my favorite pastimes because it makes me incredibly relaxed and at ease. I used to take baths a lot because I needed to calm my skin down, but now I love to take one as a great form of self-care.

So, how about you do the same?

Below, I’ve put together a guide to taking the ultimate bath. From everything you have to do before you set foot in the tub to what to apply to your skin right after. Do this little ritual and you’ll feel totally pampered and deeply relaxed.


Pre-Bath Preparation

  1. Select your playlist.
    I like listening to calming music from my Self-Love playlist on Spotify. Just search under Nitika Chopra!
  2. Grab some herb infused water.
    Staying hydrated is super important during winter months. To make drinking H20 a little more special, throw some fresh basil leaves and lemon slices in.
  3. Pick a bath salt.

  4. Apply essential oils.

Post-Bath Self-Care

  1. Moisturize your skin.

  2. Put on light, comfy clothing.

Don’t have time for a full on bath? Do a face steam instead.
