Everyone loves a good bath, right? What better way to unwind after a horrible day at the office... but some people are clearly more serious about bathing than others, because January Jones considers herself a bit of an expert on the whole thing.

According to Violet Grey, Jones — who you may now refer to as "January Jones, the bath critic" — has "refined the ritual of bathing (and the bathtub selfie) to an art form." And in her new column for The Violet Files, she speaks all about her bath-time rituals, including the pros and cons of what makes a good bath.

If you've been dreaming of the day when you will finally find out the secrets of what makes a bath worthy of an A-list actress, this is your chance. According to Jones, you should try out unconventional baths, like the "kitchen detox" (which will have you soaking for 20 minutes in a pound of sea salt and a pound of baking soda). She also suggests that the perfect bath-time ritual includes trying out a new book — just don't get it wet.

Other pro tips from the bath critic herself include: leaving yesterday's takeout far, far away; to avoid making phone calls (especially to your boss) while submerged in water, and lastly, whatever you do, don't make your bath too hot.


She also offers up some information on the products you should try out, including, Susanne Kaufmann St. John’s Wort calming bath, as well as the brand's detox oil scrub. Plus, no bath is complete without the Eve Lom cleanser and the Yves Durif comb.

So in conclusion, make sure your bath is super-fancy!
