We are bath-advocates here at Etta + Billie! Bathing is luxurious and an instant mental health booster - but it can also cause different skin reactions for different skin types. Especially when involving a long soak! As many of us dive deep into self care, personal reflection, and a slow pace of life at the start of the year, we thought it would be a perfect time to analyze what product we recommend for your skin type. Check them out!

Dry Skin

Dry skin requires extra hydration (duh) but also less frequent exfoliation and abrasion. For our customers with dry skin, we recommend dropping 7-10 drops of our Bath and Body Oil into the tub (or even more if you want a more aromatic tub experience). If you are a weekly bather and like to exfoliate in the tub, then make sure you use a body scrub that's loaded with nourishing oils that leave a layer of moisture on the skin. We recommend exfoliating every other week to avoid irritation. Lucky for you, our body scrub bars have organic cocoa butter and organic shea butter! 

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin means you have to be extra careful! All of our products are gentle enough for sensitive skin, but you just want to make sure you know how to use them. Much like with dry skin, we recommend dropping our bath and body oil into your tub while its filling. This will provide lasting moisture while the essential oils have a mild enough effect to calm the skin's surface. Rather than using our bath and body scrubs, sensitive skin is best suited to use any of our soaps, bars or liquids, to cleanse and refresh the skin's surface! 

Normal to Combination

For combo to normal skin types, bathing means you can so the full spectrum! Bath and body oil, weekly exfoliation with our body scrub, as well as concluding your bathing experience with a rinse of either form of our soaps. Always remember to exfoliate gently and not be too abrasive on the skin (even if your skin is easy-peasy). As you wet and loosen your body scrub bar, rub slowly in circles to remove dead skin cells and reveal glowing skin! 

For every skin type, it is important to make sure you always follow your bath with a deep moisturizer. The Etta + Billie lotion is a wonderful option for a non-greasy hydrator that is organic and loaded with amazing ingredients. And finally, we recommend our original scent profile of Lavender for all bathing products - its just the best way to unlock that calm energy you need these days. Happy bathing!
