    Spoil Yourself With a Hot Towel Treatment

    You too can re-create the luxurious feeling of a hot towel treatment at home, and benefit at the same time from fantastic dividends for your skin and hair! Hot towels are used in massages, aromatherapy treatments, beauty therapies, men’s grooming, and in health spas for very good reasons. The heat is not only extremely comforting and relaxing, but it has other benefits as well.


    Hot Towel Treatments for Your Skin

    hot towel wrapped around a man's faceHeat softens up men’s facial hair before a shave, and also opens up the pores on the skin. Barbers know this and have been offering hot towel treatments to men for centuries. Re-create your own barber’s shop treatment at home. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to your towels before heating them up and applying them to your face and neck.

    Popular scents include lavender or lemon, or try peppermint to soothe a headache, eucalyptus for congestion, or geranium or orange to aid relaxation. Simply apply a few drops to the middle of your towel, and then dampen it with hot water. You could then heat the dampened towel in the microwave for about 30 seconds if you like. Just squeeze or wring out any excess water first, and then place the towel on a microwave-safe plate or dish.

    Men can benefit from this treatment before a shave - and men and women can enjoy a hot towel treatment before a facial! The heat will open up the pores before you apply a face mask. A few drops of coconut oil on a hot towel will help to soothe acne.


    Hot Towels for Improved Hair Conditioning

    So that’s your face taken care of, now let’s look at how awoman in spa wearing a towel around her head and covering her midsection hot towel can help improve the shine and condition of your hair. Heat helps to open up the hair cuticle so that hair conditioner can penetrate deep down into the hair shaft. Hot oil hair treatments can be bought from stores, or you could use coconut oil to condition the scalp and your hair. Rub the coconut oil into your scalp after washing your hair, and then put on a shower cap. Then, cover your head with a hot bath towel and let the coconut oil soak in for at least 30 minutes. Afterwards, you should rinse thoroughly and shampoo your hair to remove all traces of the coconut oil.

    Try using hot towels as part of a massage, or wrap a hot towel around the feet before a relaxing foot massage. You can heat a towel up in the tumble dryer for a few minutes, or use hot water or a hot pot instead of a microwave. We all know that a warm or hot towel feels fantastic, particularly after a bath or shower on a cold day, so let's enjoy those sensations and take maximum advantage!
