2PEP UP YOUR MOOD

Prima (UK) - - Pamper Time -

A warm bath can leave you feel­ing as if you’ve hit re­set, es­pe­cially if you throw in en­er­gis­ing aro­mas and get your blood pump­ing with a vig­or­ous head-to-toe scrub.

ADD… Grape­fruit es­sen­tial oil to wake up the senses and up­lift you. Mix eight to 10 drops with a cou­ple of ta­ble­spoons of al­mond oil to en­sure it dis­perses into the wa­ter prop­erly.

DO… Watch the heat. The ideal tem­per­a­ture for a bath is be­tween 36 and 38°C – any higher and you’ll feel more slug­gish than be­fore. For a fi­nal en­ergy boost, try an all-over blast of cool wa­ter from the shower.

TRY… Neal’s Yard Reme­dies Grape­fruit Or­ganic Es­sen­tial Oil, £7.50 and Al­mond Oil, £12; Soap & Glory Bub­ble In Par­adise Re­fresh­ing Body Wash, £6.50; Soaper Du­per

Zingy Gin­ger & Sea Salt Body Scrub, £10.
