How To Take The Perfect Bath, According To Science

Aren’t baths the best thing to exist? Counting your blessing, count it twice! As what they provide us with is second to none. It is pretty clear to us that baths were originated for the body cleanliness purpose, although many people feel like baths are disgusting as to them it feels like they are soaking their body in their own filth. Whatever the false repercussions and objections have been created, baths are still liked the most. Apart from all cleaning your body and all, baths are so meaningful and are also meant to be taken for relaxing yourself. Most of us do not bathe every day to clean ourselves, but we do it so that our tiredness can die out and be fresh again. Well, by using a little science, you can get hold of the most perfect heavenly bath formula. A little bit of science won’t be of any harm; in fact, it would enhance your bathing experience to another level. 

What Does Temperature Have To Do With Bath?

•You know how it is suggested that drinking cold water isn’t good for your health instead, drinking slightly warm water improves your health, right? The same is the case with the bathwater. Temperature plays a crucial role in enhancing the profitability of your bath. Even if you add nothing in that water but if the temperature is just about right, then you would be amazed to see what difference temperature makes. 

•When we talk about warm baths, people usually set the temperature of their bathwater to 100-degree Fahrenheit, which is perfect. However, after going through a couple of researches and studies, what we have gathered so far is that different temperatures of warm bathwater can give you different results. If you are going for a bath specifically to clean yourself, like squeaky clean, then the warm water temperature should be 112-degree Fahrenheit. We don’t know the reason behind this as it wasn’t revealed, but the statement is very solid and genuine. Taking a bath in 112-degree bathwater will wash away anything and everything.   

•However, to reduce the loss of moisture from your skin, which becomes a common problem with aging, any oldie shouldn’t be taking just hot burning baths because it will make their skin very dry, reddish, and itchy. 

•The other bathwater temperature could be any number that you are comfortable with. No strings attached; if it was a hot day outside and you want to jump into a bath after coming home, then you would feel much better in a cold water bath than a burning hot water bath, right? So, you can also set the temperature according to your need at the moment. 

•If you want to have a good night’s sleep, then you should try taking a neutral temperature bath, and by neutral, we mean your body temperature. It will relax down your nervous system.

•Taking room temperature baths is also very impactful and relaxing; usually, people feel comfortable in-room temperature bathwater as the temperature is just about right according to the existing weather. 

What Does Time Have to Do with Bath?

•The time you spend in the bath is an essential thing to consider. Usually, an average human likes to spend 20 minutes in the bath, which is optimum. However, taking a 10 minutes bath before sleep can significantly improve your sleep routine. 

•At what time you take your bath is also a thing to ponder your thoughts upon as different times of the day will have different impacts on your body. Usually, a morning or evening bath is suggested by the experts as taking a bath in the morning specifically will help you come out of sleep to start your day. If you experience stiffness in your muscles and joints after waking up in the morning, then taking a bath will ease that out too. Mornings are the best time for bathing though taking baths two hours before sleep will improve your sleep. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, then you should take a bath two hours before sleeping; you can thank us later. 

Final Word:

Following a perfect science-infused bath regime will itself advance your bathing outcomes; nevertheless, you can try using some products too to make it a bit more advance. You can add essential oils like lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, lemon oil, etc., into your bathwater. Add anywhere between five to twenty drops of any essential oil in your bath water just before stepping into it to prevent the oils from evaporating. Keep in mind that not all essential oils are good; some, like clove oil, peppermint oil, etc., can irritate your skin. You can add bath bombs into your bath water to have that bubbling fancy bathwater. The choice of scents and all that comes in bath bombs make it even more exciting as you can try a different bath bomb every time, and you will still be left with countless more to try.
