How to Prepare a Moroccan Bath at Home
Just because you don't head to the spa a lot doesn't mean you can't pamper yourself and prepare a Moroccan bath at home. A Moroccan bath is a great way to exfoliate and cleanse your skin thoroughly. It is a simple procedure, that involves turning your bathroom into a steam room temporarily, so here is how to prepare a Moroccan bath at home yourself.
What you will need:
- Black soap
- An exfoliating glove
- Moroccan mud
- Preparing a Moroccan bath at home is simple, just start by drawing a warm bath, so your bathroom can be filled with steam, which will help unclog your pores and absorb the soap as much as possible, resulting in the ultimate exfoliation for your skin.
- Take your time when doing the morrocan bath. Sit in the steam for about 15-20 minutes and just relax. Let the steam work its magic.
- Apply the warm water to your body and until it goes moist.
- Now that the steam has softened up your skin and unclogged your pores, you can start to massage the soap on to your body. Rub it all over your body in circular motions from your feet to your shoulders.
- Once you have applied the soap to your body, it is time to exfoliate. Use the glove, and exfoliate your skin by rubbing the glove up and down your body. This will remove all the dead skin, and you will begin to see grey bits of skin appear.
- After you finished exfoliating your entire body, it is time to take a warm bath. Rinse away the soap thoroughly, and feel how soft your skin is.
-Now you will use the Moroccan mud. The mud usually comes hard as rock, so you need to break the rock texture into small tiny pieces.
- Apply some water to the small rock pieces, and mix it around until you form clay.
- Once the brown rocks have turned to clay, add a teaspoon of yogurt to the clay and mix it thoroughly. The yogurt will give your skin an added softness and glow.
- Apply the clay to your body and leave it there for five minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
- After you're done rinsing off the clay, dry yourself with a towel, just by tapping it gently; do not rub.
Voila, you have just created the Moroccan bath experience for yourself at home!
