If it’s been one of those days (or weeks, or even months), more than just your nerves may be frazzled. From unkempt hair to gnawed-up nails, stress takes a toll on your appearance—not to mention the number it does on your insides. But I’ve got good news. You can tackle tension and tend to your looks in one easy step with these soothing, pampering products.
Soak it up. Relaxation, that is. Slather on a rich, luxurious lotion in your favorite scent to calm both your skin and your mind. Aromatherapy Body Cream by Aura Cacia is an all-natural, intense moisturizing cream infused with 100% pure essential oil. Apply it all over for silky-soft skin and the stay-with-you aroma of nature’s most famous stress-busting flower—lavender.
Wash away worries. If that five-minute morning shower is the only escape you can get (I’m talking to you, busy Mamas!), make the most of it with a sudsy shampoo that doubles as a tension tamer. EO Chamomile & Honey Shampoo nourishes hair with natural ingredients while therapeutic essential oils send your troubles down the drain.
Make it a spa day. No need to schedule an appointment! Create a relaxing getaway right at home by soaking in a Queen Helene Original Batherapy mineral salt bath (great for easing tight muscles and hydrating skin), followed by some down time with an Earth Therapeutics Soothing Beauty Mask (pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes for cooling relief for tired, puffy eyes). A few spritzes of Aura Cacia’s Renewing Rose Aromatherapy Spritz, and you’ll be ready to get back to the grind—with a beautiful, healthy glow.
