January Jones might be best known for her portrayal as Betty Draper, but she's a woman of many talents, including, as her Instagram followers may know, an art form-esq bathing ritual and the perfect bathtub selfie. In her new column for The Violet Files, Jones holds court from her tub as VIOLET GREY's very own intrepid bath critic. Much like a research scientist or a restaurant reviewer, she'll examine new products each month and delivers her verdicts on the good, the bad, and the beautiful. Below are some of Jones' two cents on etiquette, but in the full file you can see more of her do's & don'ts' and the quartet of bathtime products she can't live without. January Jones 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 anot - United States - Tuesday 25th October 2016 (2 images)
