Today I’m just quickly going to review a bath salt. It’s starting to get cold and there is nothing more soothing than a warm bath. I bought this bath salt from J-list and it was really cheap for the amount you get. In Japan they believe that sweating is beneficial. Sweating not only promotes good health, but has beauty and weight loss benefits also. For centuries, different cultures have promoted the healing effects of sweating through steam baths and saunas.
For the skin: The skin is the largest organ in the body and through the pores it plays a major role in the detoxifying process alongside the lungs, kidneys, bowels, liver and the lymphatic and immune systems. The skin produces cool sweat to regulate the body’s elevated temperature. It also has the ability to transform toxins from lipid-soluble or oil-based, into -easier to eliminate- water-soluble forms. Sweat carries toxins out of the body and flushes them through the pores. A bath or sauna induced sweat followed by a shower cleanses your skin far more thoroughly than just taking a shower. It makes it soft and healthy with immediately noticeable effects.
For the body: The heat of a bath diffuses the pain and relaxes tired muscles. A bath in the evening will leave tense muscles and sore limbs totally relaxed. It increases and improves the rate of blood circulation and breathing and helps you to lose weight.
The writing on the bottle says:
汗だし: sweat, 手足の冷え: cold hands and feet, ミルキーイエロー: milky-yellow,
ホニージンジャー: honey ginger
It is supposed to make you sweat and give warmth to your body. The content is in powder form and has a strong apricot color. When I first opened the bottle I was kind of surprised about its smell. The honey smells strong and a little artificial. The product does not foam but it gives the water a nice orange-yellowish, warm color. I stayed in the bath tub for about one hour and after the peeling, the facial mask etc. my skin dried and after a while I could feel how it started to sweat. I love the immediate effects of taking a bath! My skin feels moistured and looks refreshed and even-toned. For the face I used Origin’s Clear Improvement charcoal mask and Clarin’s Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream. For me they work wonders! Used in a combo they clearly free my nose from blackheads and brighten up my complexion.
And last but not least: I ordered something from Cherry Culture. I’m going to review everything as soon as it arrives!
This weekend we’re going to have grape harvest! I will be back on monday and show you some pictures of it! Stay tuned and have a nice weekend!
