Taking a detox bath offers you two different experiences: your skin gets relaxed, soothed and reuventated. At the same time, salts used in this bath draw out the toxins from the body, allowing your body (and skin) to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

This detox bath contains salt, like many other body bath recipes. Salt is a great ingredient as it cleanses the skin, but also pulls out the excess water accumulated in the body. This draws the liquid and any toxins out efficiently.
Or, use baking soda. Baking soda is great when it comes to regulating skin's pH.
Another thing to consider is adding essential oil. This is not necessary but if you are looking for a relaxing experience, for example, you can add some lavender oil to the bath. If you are in need of some energy boost, add eucalyptus or peppermint oil. As I said, these are optional and even without them, this bath is good enough to create a great detoxifying experience.
