Summer Baths: Soak in Honey, Lemon, Rose, Sea Salts

1. Honey and Vinegar Bath

To a bucket of water, add a cup of vinegar and a teaspoon of honey. This is very effective and reduces irritation as well as retrieves tiredness. This special summer bath will leave the skin feeling smooth as well as treat sunburn.

2. Rose Oil and Honey Bath

The summer months with strong UV rays often make the skin dry and patchy. To lessen the effect, fill your bucket or tub of water with the following ingredients:
3 tsp olive oil
2 tsp rose oil
2 tsp honey
2 tsp of your favourite perfume or eau-de-cologne

3. Mogra – Arabian Jasmine FLOWERS

Mogras are easily available during the summer months and they provide a wonderful cooling and sensuous effect on the skin if added to your bath water.

4. Body Scrubs and Cleansing Grains

A simple, easily available natural exfoliator like grains of sand was used centuries ago in parts of the African sub-continent to cleanse and smoothen the feet as well as remove dead skin.One can keep a jar of ready-made cleansing grains in the bathroom and reach out for a handful of natural scrub by mixing the following ingredients which will help you remove summer tan as well as keep your skin silky soft:
2 cups dried powdered green peas
1 cup gram flour
1 cup dried orange peel powder
1 cup dried lemon peel powder
1 cup powdered almonds
