Do You Have to Shower after a Bath Bomb? - Vitabath

Posted by

When it comes to showering after bath time, opinions vary widely. This especially holds true if you used a bath bomb known for releasing tons of foam, fizz, color and other components into the bath water. While there's no written rule that says you must shower after using a bath bomb, it may be a good idea in certain cases when the bath bomb contains ingredients you may not want lingering on your skin.

When to Shower after a Bath Bomb

An easy way to tell if you could use a shower after your bath bomb is looking at the ring around your tub. If you've drained all the bath bomb water from your foaming bath and see a notable ring of color, glitter, suds, smudges or other type of residue hanging around the tub, a quick shower can help ensure that same debris is not left hanging around your skin.

If the color, glitter or other components seem impossible to get off the tub, try using a product that contains surfactants. Surfactants are compounds that double as foaming agents, emulsifiers and detergents, and they can help erase the ring around the tub. A quality body wash or shower gel can help wash away any residue on your skin.

When You May Skip a Shower after a Bath Bomb

If your post-bath-bomb tub shows no signs of lingering residue and your skin feels fresh, nourished and revived after your bath, showering after a bath bomb may not be necessary. In fact, some bath bombs contain nourishing ingredients that enhance and soften your skin. Rather than rinsing them promptly down the drain, you may want to continue to reap their benefits.

A prime example of beneficial ingredients can be found in Vitabath® Foaming Bath Bombs. In addition to minimal, unobtrusive dyes and fragrances frequently based on essential oils, Vitabath bath bombs contain ingredients that are good for your skin. These include:

  • Grape seed oil, which improves your skin's elasticity, softness and moisture levels
  • Coconut oil, which keeps skin hydrated while reducing inflammation
  • Epsom salt, a natural skin softener that additionally fortifies your skin's hydration barrier
  • Antioxidant-rich superfruits such as mangosteen, pomegranate, acai, goji, noni, coffee and green tea

Vitabath Foaming Bath Bombs additionally come in an array of enticing fragrances, which you may want to enjoy as they linger lusciously on your skin after your bath. Drifting off to sleep or continuing to bask in relaxation may be enhanced by the fruity scent of Pomegranate Bellini Blush™, crisp Cucumber & White Tea, exotic Coconut Noir™, soothing Lavender Chamomile,

Heavenly Coconut Crème™ or the fresh aroma of Cool Spearmint & Thyme™.

To Shower or Not to Shower after a Bath Bomb

Making the decision to shower or not to shower after a bath bomb is all about personal preference. If your skin feels like it could use a good rinse to get rid of glitter, funky colors or other residue, by all means go for it. If your skin feels soft, smooth, refreshed and soothed enough to slip right onto the couch or into bed, then that's the right decision for you.

You're likely to have less desire or need to shower after a bath bomb if it contains beneficial botanical ingredients proven to leave you with lovely skin. Shop Vitabath Foaming Bath Bombs today for your luxurious bath experience.
