Self-care Sunday: My ULTIMATE Bath Routine

Being a fulltime mom is amazing and I’m really grateful for the opportunity, but it can be quite exhausting and time-consuming as well. It's actually pretty hard. That’s why I think it’s really important to take a little break every now and then to clear my head and to recharge my battery. I love to go outside and get some fresh air while Jeremy spends some time with our little pineapple. This is one of my favorite things to do! Another great way for me to relax is by taking a warm bath with lots and lots of bubbles and amazing products! I mean, who doesn't like a pamper night?!

In today's post, I would love to share my ultimate bath routine and some of the products that I use to give my body and skin a little something extra. I like to try and use different products from time to time, but I'm only going to discuss a few of my favorites today to give you a little peek in my stash, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy!

My amazing bath routine starts with lighting up some scented candles and cleaning my face with a cotton pad and micellar water. In the meantime, I fill the tub with hot water, bubbles and a lot of color. I love the smell of coconut, so I use coconut bath & shower from Kruidvat for some nice bubbles, which reminds me of palm trees, warmth and sunny days. This definitely brings back a lot of nice memories, even though I haven’t traveled much in my life yet. Still, I’ve had some amazing summer breaks in the past.

To add a little bit of magic, I use a bath bomb from Kruidvat as well. They aren’t expensive, they smell amazing and the colors are great. I’m also obsessed with bath oil to make my skin really, really soft. I currently use the extra soft baby oil from Nivea. This product is amazing and I will definitely buy this again. The main reason why I bought it in the first place is for my little baby. I'm a huge fan of Nivea and I really want to try out their baby products.

I always listen to relaxation music while I'm having a pamper night and I love to do some meditation as well. I just breath for a few minutes to clear my head and to get inspired again. Meditation is just an amazing way to connect with your body. It's really calming and it feels so, so good.

Anyway, it's time for a little scrubbing to exfoliate my skin and to remove dirt, oil and other impurities. It also increases the blood circulation and it makes my skin extremely soft. I think it's pretty important to use a scrub every now and then. I mean, it has a lot of benefits and it's really good for your skin! I'm currently obsessed with the cleansing scrubgel from Kruidvat because it contains bamboo extracts, jojoba and a lot of other amazing ingredients. I don't know much about bamboo, but I do have some experience with jojoba. Jojoba oil is extremely hydrating and it really improves the condition and elasticity of the skin.

I'm super, super skeptical when it comes to facial masks. My skin is extremely sensitive and it took me a while to find the right one that doesn't dehydrate my face. I used to work as a saleswoman for a beauty company and that's when I discovered the Glacial Marine Mud Mask, an amazing product from Epoch. This product is extremely gentle and it works really, really well for me. I really recommend this mask if you have a sensitive skin as well. The results are amazing. It gives your skin a beautiful and healthy glow and it really cleans the pores to reduce and prevent pimples. So I apply the product with my hands and leave it on for about 10, 15 minutes. In the meantime, I enjoy a cold drink, close my eyes and relax for a while.

If I could, I would do this every day! It's so relaxing, especially when it's already dark outside. I just love a good pamper session. I mean, who doesn't? A little bit of skin care, a little bit of shaving, lots and lots of bubbles, sign me up, please! I love to take a bath with my little girl as well and she seems to like it too. Normally, she's pretty stressed when we give her a bath, but she's always happy and calm when she's with me.

Anyway, it's time to clean my face and to take a nice, little shower. I do have quite a few shower products, but my ultimate favorite is the concentrated shower gel with the scent of lotus from Yves Rocher. It smells so good and it is such an amazing product to use! I basically grew up with this brand because my mom is a huge fan of their products as well.

The shampoo that I use to treat my hair is the Classic 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner from Adrélon. I'm literally obsessed with this shampoo because it makes my hair so soft and healthy. They actually don't sell it anymore in our local drugstore, which I'm definitely not happy about. I recently bought a shampoo from Nivea to try out. I've already tried so many different shampoos in my life, so I'm pretty curious about this one. My hair is extremely difficult, let me tell you that. It literally has a mind of its own! But I have faith in this shampoo and I can’t wait to test it out!

It feels amazing to take a little break and to relax every now and then. A bath is just the perfect way to get energized again, don’t you agree? I think it’s really important to take care of yourself, even though you don’t have much time. I try to take a bath once a week, which is just perfect. I don’t have to worry about my little girl either, I know Jeremy takes good care of her!
