Guide to the Perfect Bath
Alexa Pulitzer's Chandelier shower curtain

Call us crazy, but what ever happened to bath time? No, a shower doesn?t count. We?re talking about luxurious alone time in a deep soak.

Here, our guide to spa-like bliss, right in your bathroom:

Bath Salts With formulas capable of everything from soothing muscles to easing digestion, sea salts elevate any bath experience. We?re partial to Aveda Stress-Fix Soaking Salts ($40), which wash away tension with powerful lavender aromatherapy.

Exfoliator Dead skin is gross. Loofahs are fun. Case in point: this Cleanlogic mesh brush ($6) with an extended handle for hard-to-reach spots (we?re looking at you, middle back).

Candle Archipelago?s Verbena Blanc jar candle ($30) has a soothing fragrance of verbena, lavender and thyme. Plus, the wooden wick mimics the sound of a fireplace--can you say ?om??

Decor A dingy shower curtain kind of puts a damper on the whole escaping-reality attempt. Alternatively, you?ll feel properly regal alongside Alexa Pulitzer?s Chandelier shower curtain ($50).

Tunes Need a few mellow tunes to drown out the day? Set up some portable speakers, plug in your smartphone and listen to our relaxation playlist.

Book If you can withstand the urge to zone out, try losing yourself in Jennifer McMahon?s suspenseful new novel, The One I Left Behind. Just leave your Kindle out of it--technology hovering over water is not our idea of Zen.
