First of all, a hot water bath can be very relaxing. So after a tiring day, a hot bath can definitely do you good. Also, hot baths can sooth aching muscle as well as improve blood movement in your body. To enjoy a hot bath even better, here are some tips for you to consider:
- Keep the ‘radiators’ cool – Your body has ‘radiators.’ These are parts that are perfect exhaust for body heat. These parts include the head, the feet, and the hands. Keep them cool as you take a very hot bath. Doing so will help prevent fatigue as well as minor headaches.
- Keep hydrated – Before taking a hot bath, it is very important to drink at least one tall glass of water. When you take a hot bath, you sweat a lot. Of course, you do not want to get dehydrated. And if you feel very thirsty after your bath, do not hesitate to drink another glass of water.
- Avoid a very hot bath – When you take a hot bath, you have to avoid bathing in boiling hot water. Very hot water can be damaging to your skin. That is why people who bathe in very hot water usually suffer from dryness of skin as well as irritation. Take note that the most relaxing baths are the ones with tolerable, mildly hot water.
- Enjoy a body massage – Hot baths are more relaxing if you massage yourself. Massage your neck, you shoulders, and your thighs. If you are to bathe in a tub, you can always use a massage ball or even a tennis ball. Trap it under your body and let it massage your back.
