Posted on

2. They can help fix some skin or muscle issues you may have.


You can add anything to your bath water to enhance your experience. Got sore muscles? Add epsom salt. Got skin issues? Add some milk to moisturize. BOOM.


4. Two words: BATH BOMBS.

Any excuse to go to Lush really.

6. "But you're sitting in your own filth." Actually, you're not.


Dirt tends to settle away from skin and people aren't actually *that* dirty so the amount of dirt in your bath is very minuscule. And by soaking, you're actually getting all of your dead skin cells off of you. So in a way you're getting cleaner.


8. Baths also have huge health benefits.


According to this study, taking a hot bath will lower your blood sugar levels by 10%. And it also lowers glucose levels. It's like exercising but you're lying down and getting clean.

10. In fact, you can do MULTIPLE things at the SAME TIME.


In addition to music, you can drink while taking a bath! Eat while taking a bath! Read a book (carefully) while taking a bath! The possibilities for multi-tasking are endless. Just make sure it doesn't involve anything electric and you're golden.
