Happy new year! If you didn't enjoy enough bubbles during your New Year's Eve celebration, you get a another chance today. National Bubble Bath Day has arrived!
Life offers us lots of choices. So, when it comes to personal preferences such as a cup of coffee or tea, still or sparkling water, cats or dogs, or a Mac or a PC, we need to choose wisely. The same goes for bathing methods. Most people develop a fierce loyalty to a bath or a shower--rarely both.

Baths and showers provide their own unique benefits. However, baths offer something that showers can't. They allow us the opportunity to schedule quality time for ourselves. At the end of a long, hectic day, you can fill up the tub with warm water, light some candles and incense, read a book and relax your tired body. Plus, a bath helps take weight off of your feet, joints and muscles, which ultimately serves as a revitalizing way to relieve minor aches and pains.
With frigid temperatures gripping most of the country, the time has arrived to embrace National Bubble Bath Day. So start running the warm water and check out the following bodycare products. They're designed to soothe and soften your skin, as well as stimulate your senses.
We're stoked for a soak. How about you? Bubbles optional!
