January Jones Shares Rules Of The Bath For Violet Grey
Actress January Jones has become VIOLET GREY’s own bath critic. In a new column, the Mad Men star shares her Rules of the Bath:
· TRY… Unconventional baths such as a “kitchen detox.” Use one pound of sea salt and one pound of baking soda in your warm bath and soak for at least 20 minutes. I learned about this a few years ago from Dr. Linda Lancaster in Santa Fe, and I do it once or twice a week. She recommends various baths to rid the body of toxins from traveling.
· DON’T… Make the water too hot or you won’t be able to stand it for too long, and be prepared to sweat afterward! Don’t do this in the morning unless you are an athlete and it’s acceptable to be sweaty at work.
· TRY… Reading a new book and read for pleasure in the bath—a fun biography or hot new fiction; whatever relaxes and intrigues you.
· DON’T... Get your book wet. I have a little metal tray that goes across the bath for my oils and bath salts and a book holder. And refrain from reading anything work related or any emails. I don’t even read magazines or scripts in the bath—they are hard not to get wet.
· TRY… Separating from your phone. I recommend leaving it at least 5 feet away—it’s good for the soul and the body.
· DON’T… Drop your iPad. I am just naturally really good at not dropping things into the bath, but it’s another reason to keep your gadgets at a healthy distance.
· TRY… Making a call to your crush, or to girlfriends regarding your crush, from the auspices of the tub is generally within bounds.
· DON’T… Call your boss or anyone else who would judge your bath ritual.
