The bath – a time for spoiling
For Japanese women, the bath has not only a cleaning purpose, but is a complex ritual of skin care, purifying and relaxing, based on several stages. First, the impurities and the dead cells are removed, and the blood flow is activated by exfoliation: a massage of the skin while under the shower, using a special bath glove and a special exfoliating gel. Then it's the main bath, which has to contain careful chosen nourishing ingredients and very fine aromas: soy milk, sandalwood oil, marine salts, rice water and cherry flowers. The water temperature should be a little higher than usual, about 38-39 degrees Celsius. To respect the original formula, make yourself a cherries or green tea that you savor during the bath. After 15 or 20 minutes of relaxing in the water, put on a cotton bath robe and stay 10 minutes in the bed, under a blanket. Then apply on the skin 2 layers of body butter enriched with almond oil.
