A few pointers for a great detox bath
First of all, before doing any kind of detox, talk to a health professional you trust to make sure it is safe for your individual health — better safe than sorry. In addition:
- Make sure your detox bath is very warm, but not too hot.
- Drink plenty of water before getting in the bath.
- Bring a bottle of water to sip on so you don’t get dehydrated.
- Have a cool towel on hand to cool your head and face as you soak.
Make sure not to stay in a detox bath longer than 30 minutes. If you feel yourself getting lightheaded, or if you’re simply feeling off, exit the bath immediately. Put on a robe right after your bath to keep warm, and drink plenty of cool water. Take it easy for a few hours and let your body relax. Give your body a break between detox baths — don’t take more than three detox baths per week.
