Taking a bubble bath is not only pleasant but also useful. This water treatment cleanses your skin and prepares it for the application of nourishing products. Moreover, it helps you to relax, get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and improve your mood. The herbal extracts, essential oils and other nutrients contained in the product make it extremely beneficial.
The main reasons for taking a bubble bath are:
to treat yourself after a working day and to relieve fatigue and stress;
to moisturize your skin and provide it with the useful components included;
the need to get warm and protect your body during cold;
the possibility to combine water procedures with an aromatherapy course.
Types of cosmetic foams
The optimal composition depends on why you need to use it. Such products can have a relaxing or invigorating effect and contain tonic and moisturizing ingredients, different essences, mineral salts, fruit and plant extracts. The main types are indicated below:
Fruity/berry – these products contain fruit or berry (pomegranate, grapefruit, cranberry, etc.) extracts. They give the product its colour and smell, and also have many beneficial effects: refresh and strengthen your skin, improve blood circulation and eliminate toxins.
Floral – such foams may smell of rose, lavender, peony and other flowers. In addition to the beautiful scent, they have a beneficial composition with natural oils and extracts of medicinal plants.
Coniferous – they have a soothing and relaxing effect. They contain essential extracts of coniferous plants (such as pine, fir and juniper). They have a tonic effect and help to boost the immune system during cold.
Medicinal/herbal – these cosmetic products contain extracts of chamomile, linden, string and other medicinal plants. They have a beneficial effect on the skin and body.
Combined – this type contains a combination of essential oils, plant or fruit extracts and other useful components. For example, a bathing elixir with 24-karat gold contains a pomegranate extract and the finest particles of gold.
How to choose a bath foam?
It depends on what you want to use it for. Cosmetic products with a soothing and relaxing effect are perfect for the evening water procedures (for example, with lavender, cocoa essential oil, linden or chamomile extract). Cosmetics with citrus oils and other invigorating components are suitable for a morning procedure.
When choosing the bath foam at the MAKEUP store, avoid products with a suspiciously low price and questionable composition. Choose more expensive and time-tested natural cosmetics with valuable nutritional composition and aromatic oils instead of synthetic fragrances.
