Only the best is good enough for your daily body care
In our ever-stressed times, a lot of emphasis is placed on getting things done as quickly and efficiently as possible. We take our coffee "to go", check our e-mails on the way to the train, and our sport has to be "high intensity" so that we can just be somewhere else again quickly. Many of us forget, in all the hectic pace of life, that there are things that need patience and dedication to work, and simply won't be accelerated. One of these things is personal hygiene.
In most cultures there are forms of ritualized body care: the Scandinavian sauna, the Turkish hamam, the Japanese onsen, the Greek bathing culture. They all have one thing in common: personal hygiene is not only seen as a means to an end, but celebrated. You take the time to concentrate only on yourself and your body and leave everything else outside the door.
Even though you may not have access to a spa or other wellness facility at the moment, you still have the opportunity to do something good for yourself and your skin in your bathroom.
