Sure, taking a bath is a nice way to get cleaned up.  But in Ayurveda a bath is so much more than that.  A bath can actually be therapy!  It relaxes the muscles, opens up the pores, and restores moisture to the body tissues.  A bath can also clear the mind and balance emotions.  Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?  It's easy to prepare a healing bath, and here are a few guidelines:
-Use cleansers that are moisturizing.  The idea is to help the skin absorb the water and rehydrate.  The skin's moisture balance is essential for the overall health of the skin.
-Make sure the bath water is pure.  Use a water filter if necessary.  The water should be comfortably warm, not too hot or too cold.
-Take your time in the bath, relax and breathe deeply.
-Set the mood in the room with natural aromatherapy and soft lighting.
-Moisturize your skin after the bath.
