11 Detox Baths That Aren’t Messing Around

Detox baths may be a bit of a fad, but that doesn't mean they're baloney. If you're sick of everyone talking about them, then we challenge you to take one and see if you can stop talking about it.
Therapeutic bathing is nothing new. It's one of the oldest treatments for virtually everything — illness, injury, vitamin deficiency. While we always raise an eyebrow at the term "detox," there's no arguing the benefits of a high-quality soak. The added bonus is that it makes you look great. A hot, steamy bath naturally gets the blood flowing and makes your skin more glowing than not. Throw in a bunch of essential oils, natural exfoliants, and deep-cleaning ingredients, and you're going to look as good as you feel.
We've rounded up some classic, curative recipes you can DIY at home, plus the best of the shoppable detox baths available. Do yourself a favor and scrub out your tub, and then pick the one that sounds like your jam. Good luck getting out.
