Fresh Sake Bath

Sake isn't just for drinking. Inspired by the ancient bathing rituals of Japanese geisha, Fresh's Sake Bath ($82; is a favorite in the beauty world—and for good reason. The formula is made up of more than 50 percent real sake, which, because it's fermented, contains amino acids and enzymes that help soften and smooth skin. Paired with gingerroot and pine extracts, this sake soak increases circulation and body temperature. It might make you a little sweaty, but that's a small price to pay for seriously soothed muscle aches and pains. While it's definitely on the pricey side, a little bit goes a long way.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes

Magnesium has been getting a lot of buzz lately because it's an essential nutrient for good health, yet a majority of adults don't get enough of it. One way to get more of the mineral is by taking supplements, but another is transdermal absorption (through the skin). Enter Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes ($12.75; Different than Epsom salts, they're extracted from the Zechstein Seabed in Northern Europe and are more easily absorbed by skin. Soaking in one to three cups for about 30 minutes will hydrate skin, reduce inflammation, and leave you feeling super chilled-out.
