Trying to get away from the heat? Get in the bath!
Hear us out: baths can be a fun and refreshing part of your summer. And we’ve got a few tips and tricks to turn your bathtub into a cool, soothing oasis that’ll turn hot summer nights into cool ones.
It might seem unusual, but jumping into a cool bath isn’t anything new. In fact, it’s known as a quick and easy way to bring down your core temperature, reduce stress, help wake you up, and even keep your skin and hair looking their best.
The coolest bath bombs
Adding a bath bomb to your cold bath kicks the experience up a notch. Our fizzers are packed with sodium bicarbonate (the stuff that makes ‘em fizz) as well as refreshing and soothing oils that’ll ensure your bath bomb fizzes easily in colder water. We’d suggest avoiding bath bombs, like Butterball or Over And Over, which are packed with butters that need warmer water to melt completely.
If you want to keep your cool both in and out of the bath, ingredients like the peppermint oil in Intergalactic, are ideal. Peppermint’s tingling effects will help keep skin feeling cool while you soak up all this fun bath bomb’s goodness, and it’ll also stay with you after you’ve emerged from your cooling oasis.
Citrusy ingredients like lime, lemongrass or lemon can also give your bath and skin a refreshing boost. Dive deep into the depths of your cool bath and Yellow Submarine's tropical perfume of Brazilian orange, lemongrass and coriander oils. Or grab Big Blue, which is packed with lemon and lavender oils, as well as fine sea salt for a relaxing oceanic experience, while Avobath’s soothing lemongrass, mashed avocado and olive oil blend will rejuvenate your body and mind, while keeping skin soft and hydrated.
After sun solutions
When you’ve spent too much time in the sun, soothing ingredients are in order. The lavender oil found in Ickle Baby Bot and Twilight will not only offer comforting relief, but lavender is also known for its relaxation abilities, so you can lie back, cool down and leave the tub feeling ready for a good night’s sleep. Bubble bars can also ease sunburned skin. Milky Bath, packed with soy milk powder, cocoa butter and extra virgin olive oil, is a good choice if you're feeling sensitive. Or try Mint Bubble Brush - a reusable bubble bar made with cooling peppermint oil for an instant icy freshness. The bubbling bristles will even let you create swirls of blue in your frothy white bubbles as an extra bathtime treat.
No tub? We got you.
Hop in the shower with our shower jellies! Pop your favorite one in the fridge or freezer and its icy cold touch will help invigorate skin on hot summer days and nights. There’s also Outback Mate and Maypole Soaps, which can help boost that frosty feeling thanks to a heaping dose of tingly peppermint oil.
