view gallery VIEW GALLERY

It's cold outside, so draw yourself a deep bath and luxuriate in our pick of relaxing and invigorating goodies

1. Midnight milk soak

£18, LifeNK, spacenk.com

A warm milky drink is recommended as a soothing sleep aid, so take the treatment a step further with this sugar-based soak that will have you nodding off in no time.

2. Mineral seaweed bath crystals

£24, Sai-Sei, spacenk.co.uk

This new range inspired by ancient Japanese bathing rituals, and made with minerals from the Japanese Alps, has a light and fresh fragrance.

3. Huile Précieuse

£40, Diptyque, diptyqueparis.com

A drop in a bath acts as an emollient, replenishing and protecting dehydrated skin thanks to sweet almond, argan and macadamia nut oils.

4. Bracing silverbirch thermal muscle soak

£18.50, Molton Brown, moltonbrown.co.uk

Thermal salts with extracts of linden and birch combine to help flush toxins and soothe aching muscles.

5. Matcha Tea Body Soak

£37, Origins, 0800 731 4039

Matcha, an intense green tea famed for its antioxidants, is an acquired taste. But this product, from Dr Andrew Weil's range, will revive and refresh, leaving your skin glowing.

6. Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil

£26, REN, renskincare.com

Extracted from rose petals, the essential oil in this treatment soothes sensitive skin, leaving a sensual fragrance, and helps to relieve stress.

7. Crème de Pistache

£31, Laura Mercier, available nationwide

Almost good enough to eat, there are hints of vanilla, almond, pistachio, hazelnut and praline to soften the skin while boosting moisture levels.

8. Bath wash

£16, Conran, heals.co.uk

This new collection from Sir Terence Conran comes in two unisex varieties. One evokes old-fashioned cologne with the smoky richness of oudh wood and spicy cardamom.

9. Pomegranate Noir bath oil

£52, Jo Malone, 0870 034 2411

Fruity notes of pomegranate, raspberry and plum mingle with heavier notes of patchouli, frankincense and spicy woods to create a blend that leaves skin silky-soft.

10. Therapeutic bath crystals

£10.99, Burt's Bees, Boots nationwide

Infused with essential oils, these sea salt crystals are apick-me-up for a tired body and soul, with scents of eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon.
