You’re a guy. Your morning ritual consists of a quick shower using only the basics: a bar of deodorant soap (Coast, anyone?) and a shaver. If it’s a special occasion, you may use aftershave. You’re out the door quickly and you pride yourself in taking less time to get ready than your female counterparts.
But consider this: everyone, regardless of gender, benefits from having softer, healthier skin, a better night’s sleep, and a stronger libido - which can all be yours if you take regular baths. Bathing, particularly when using sea salts, delivers valuable nutrients and minerals to your skin that help protect and nourish it - making it softer, smoother, more supple, and able to defend against harsh elements. Bathing also lowers your blood pressure and has a wonderful calming effect, so bathing at night time is a great treatment for insomnia and other sleep disorders. And yes, bathing can actually increase your sex drive. The warm water and the invigorating effect of bath salts will increase your circulation - ‘nuff said. Not to mention, you’ll feel more relaxed, healthier, and smoother to the touch.
Try taking a bath instead of that quick shower twice a week - you won’t regret it!
