There are so many reasons to take a bath: It will relax your muscles, help you sleep better, and moisturize your skin. Here’s a guide to your perfect cruelty-free bath—because you deserve it:

1. Break Out the Bubbly (No, not that kind of bubbly …)

Well, of course this is the first step in creating a luxurious bath. Lush offers a variety of Bubble Bars to add the perfect amount of bubbles to your perfect bath. Or try The Honest Company’s bubble bath—it’s also a winner!

2. Just Add Salt

Bath salts always take your skin to the next level.

3. OK, Maybe That Bubbly, Too!

You may as well relax that much more. Here’s a site to help you find delicious vegan wine.

4. Exfoliate
Whether you make your own simple concoction, such as this DIY strawberry one, or buy a sweet alchemy pre-made, a body scrub is a bathing must-have. 

DIY Berry Soft Exfoliant

8-10 strawberries
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt

  • Mix the ingredients together, then apply to your face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse.

5. Bath Bombs Are the Bomb (Sorry, I had to!)

There’s no way to explain how the Lush Bath Bomb works but to describe it as “a beautiful swirl that benefits your skin and senses.” Try it!

8. Become a Smooth Operator

A pumice stone is great for getting those feet as smooth as can be.

9. Condition

We love to use a detangling leave-in conditioner on our hair, too, while relaxing in the tub.


10. Get Cozy

As if the perfect bath weren’t enough, your body will feel even more pampered stepping into a comfortable cruelty-free robe or pajama set.
