A Tribute to the Bubble Bath

Written on January 8, 2013 at 11:15 am , by

Today is, well, National Bubble Bath Day. And though you don’t have to celebrate, we encourage you to use it as an excuse to pamper yourself. If your New Year’s resolution was gym-oriented or if it was simply to indulge in a bit of relaxation, a bubble bath is a foolproof way of relieving both muscle aches and stress. For most of us, the issue with this luxurious act: a bath takes much longer than a 10-minute shower. If you don’t have time during the week (we understand), set aside one hour this weekend for some “you” time and run yourself a bubble bath—maybe even slather on a face mask while you’re at it. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did.

Here, a few of our favorite bubbles depending on your mood:

An instant tension soother:
L’Occitane Lavander Foaming Bath ($34, Loccitane.com)

A fake spa escape:
Fresh Rice Sake Bath ($80, Sephora.com)

An uplifting energy boost:
Neutrogena Rainbath Revitalizing Grapefruit Shower and Bath Gel ($9, drugstores)
