Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
Maybe it was a night of drinking. Maybe it was too much refined sugar, salt, or carbs — only to follow it up with a 2am bedtime.
Cue puffiness, bloat, and angry, inflamed skin the next morning. The kind of irritation that even the best face mist can’t quell. And the kind of carbohydrate-induced water retention that takes a day or two to resolve, sending your cheekbones on an extended vacation.
