In today’s fast-paced culture, the ritual of bathing has for the most part been replaced by the ease and convenience of a quick shower. And yet, bathing or soaking in a bath is truly one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. It also happens to be essential for hydrating the skin during the seasonal weather changes as well as for de-stressing the mind and relaxing the body. In this issue of Beauty Guru, we explore some of the most effective and luxurious bath products, each created to enhance all of one’s most important cleansing rituals—regardless of the means.
