  • If you're a really clean person and don't like the idea of "bathing in your own muck", you could take a quick shower beforehand.

  • As you're running the bath, light some candles - there's nothing more relaxing than soaking by candlelight.

  • Light some incense sticks too to fill the room with a lovely scent. Lavender is a good choice for relaxation.

  • Remember to keep sipping water if you're in a hot bath - these can dehydrate you due to sweating. Alternatively, drinking lemon juice will help prevent a headache afterwords.

  • Your bath should be warm, but not hot! If it's too hot, it'll dry out your skin and hair, and can also cause dizziness. Really, it's best to go as cold as possible, but no one wants to soak in a cold bath so just pick a temperature that's comfortable.

  • Keeping your towels and PJs (or whatever you're changing into) on a radiator while you're in the bath means such a nice feeling when you get out to get dry! With long hair, it's always useful to have separate towels for your body and hair so you can just 'turban' your hair as soon as you get out.

  • Add bath salts! These can not only fragrance the water but can release muscle tension and improve common irritations like insect bites and callouses. Add these before bubble bath as doing so after tends to dissolve the bubbles.

  • Next add bubble bath under running water. I suggest using a moisturising/nourishing one as you'll already feel relaxed from the bath salts and incense.

  • Adding essential oils can make it feel like you've just entered a spa! For relaxation, try 10 drops of lavender. For muscle aches/headaches etc. try rosemary oil. Frankincense can help you sleep and clary sage can help give you peace of mind when you're feeling mentally agitated.

  • Adding a few drops of coconut oil to your bath will moisturise your skin as you soak! With this tip and the next, you can probably avoid having to moisturise after your bath if you're feeling lazy!

  • Honey is another ingredient you can add to your bath to moisturise you. Try getting a cup of hot water and adding 2 tablespoons of honey (1 at a time). Stir as you add the honey and it will melt in the water. Pour this in your bath and you won't end up with lumps of honey at the bottom!

  • Make your own DIY scrub with olive/coconut oil, honey and sugar. Apply this to your body, rubbing in circular motions then just sit in the bath and let it soak off.

  • When you're having a bath is the best time to apply a face mask as you've got time to let it absorb into your face and you're certainly in the right place to rinse it off!

  • Placing cold cucumber slices or cotton pads soaked in ice cold water over your eyes can reduce puffiness while you soak.

  • When you get out of the bath, 'pat' yourself dry with the towel rather than rub to prevent dry skin. Immediately after, moisturise your body. This is the best time to do so as your pores will be open.

  • Final tips for the perfect bath:

    - Keep the door closed as you run the bath and whilst you're in it. This will help steam accumulate which will open and cleanse the pores in your skin.

    - Take at least 30 minutes to have a relaxing bath.

    - Use a cellulite massager in the bath to help remove and prevent cellulite.

  • - If you can bare to, finish with a cold rinse. This will be good for your skin and will seal the cuticle of your hair, making it shinier and ensuring moisture is locked in.

    - Invest in a bath pillow if you intend on spending a while in the bath.
