Make more of the coconut milk concoction and rub the leftover milk on parts of your skin that need the most moisturizing.
Use a container that is not easily breakable, since the container may slip and fall in the bathroom.
Consider using other ingredients , such as salts, soaks, scrubs and a sea sponge.
If you do not want to make the bubble bath concoction yourself, you can buy a premade product.
When you buy a coconut milk product, check the ingredients to see what other substances are in the product. If the coconut milk is not high on the list of ingredients, the product does not likely have much coconut milk.
