Moroccan baths: What is it and what are its benefits
Moroccan bath, also known as hammam, is an ancient ritual that took place in morocco ages ago. However, this ritual was passed on from generation to another, and thanks to globalization has become a trend in beauty as well as in the spa world. Moroccan baths have health benefits such as improving blood circulation, removing dead skin, detoxing skin, balancing oil production, and infusing the skin with healthy minerals. Having a moroccan bath nowadays does not necessarily require a spa. You can now do it at the comforts of your own home and without hurting your pocket by following the steps mentioned in this article.
- Moroccan Soap (paste)
- Moroccan Clay
- Moroccan Gloves
- Rose Water (not essential)
- Oil or Hair Mask (not essential)
Start by filling a tub with hot water and soak yourself in it for around 5-10 mins. If you don't have access to a tub and have a shower instead, shower with hot water for around 3-5 mins.
Then get moroccan soap and spread it all over your skin, wait for 5 minutes then scrub your skin with a moroccan glove which is a form of loofah. The scrubbing movement should be from down to up. Start with your neck, then upper body, then lower body. You can apply an oil hair bath, like argan oil to your hair during that time, a pre-shampoo conditioner, apply moroccan clay to your hair (its method or preparation is mentioned below), or you can simply shampoo your hair.
Rinse your body and hair with warm water, then wash your moroccan glove and scrub again to get rid of all the dry skin. If you did a hair treatment you can shampoo your during this step. Rinse again.
Moisturize your hair with a conditioner and get the Moroccan clay (Rasoul clay) or Moroccan Ghasoul and add it in a bowl and add two tbsp of rose water or regular water to it and mix until it becomes a paste. If more water is needed keep on adding extra tbsp of water until its a paste.
Spread the paste all over your body and wait for 5 mins and then rinse it off with warm water.
Be sure to moisturize your body with your favorite lotion after you're done.
