Bake In Body Moisture at Home

Bake in Body Moisture with a Relaxing at Home Spa Body Treatment!

I wanted to share with you a luxurious way to pamper yourself at home. I learned this little trick at a Spa once while I was in between treatments. I had just had a massage and had an hour till my next treatment, I felt all oily from the massage and wanted to shower off before my next treatment. The Masseuse stopped me, told me to put on my spa robe, lay back and let the oils seep into my body. I was so glad that I did because while I laid there, the oil quickly dried and my skin became so soft and moisturized. Not only is this something that you can do at home that is relaxing, but is very good for you skin, and easy to do. I will tell you how I like to do it.

  • I like to take a long relaxing bath or shower (your skin takes it moisture best right after). 
  • Apply the oil all over my body.
  • Put on a fluffy long cotton robe. 
  • Lay back and let the oil bake into my skin for about a half hour to an hour.

Perfect for the Treatment

Here are my Three Favorite Products that I use at home for this treatment:

CVS Cocoa Butter Body Oil
This is my favorite oil to use for this treatment at home. It smells so good and leaves my skin so moisturized! This product is rich in essential oils that are known to lock in moisture and boost you skin's moisture barrier.

This Oil does not leave my skin as oily as the first. I use this one when I don't have as much time to let my skin bake in the oil and need it to dry faster. This Oil has many benefits besides just moisturizing which I love. It is also recommended for scars, stretch marks, uneven tone, aging and dehydrated skin. It is formulated for use on both the face and body. I have only tried in on my body.

Bath and Shower Oil "Madurai Jasmine @ Mogra"

I got this Shower/Bath oil when I had a subscription with Glossybox and it is one of the only products during the time that I was a member that I would repurchase. This one is perfect for when you take a bath because you can just add two capfuls to the running bath and soak in it while the oils seal in moisture. You come out of the bath feeling so moisturized that there is no need for any additional moisturizing. You can just pat dry and immediately put you robe on and relax.

Final Thoughts:
I hope that you enjoyed this post and that you try it out. I would definitely do it in the evening so that you have the time to put on your robe and just lay back and relax. I also love to make it even more spa like and put on some relaxing music and even some soothing eye gel pads and just fall asleep. I really want you to try this, so if you do let me know.
