5 Beauty Products That De-Stress Your Mind And Your Body
As much as we try to lead stress-free lives, sometimes ish happens. And at times the stress of life takes a toll not just on our minds but on our bodies as well, including our skin. While there’s no substitute for the gym, therapy, or a healthy diet to cope when trouble strikes, there are some worthwhile beauty products to keep in your arsenal when both your body and your mind need a pick me up. Here are five of our favorites.
If you’re a stress crier, this duo should be your go-to. The Cucumber Gel Mask helps soothe, hydrate, and detoxify skin via Cucumber, Papaya, Chamomile, Pineapple, Sugar Maple, Orange, Bilberry and Aloe. And the Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Patches do all of the above plus de-puff, which is crucial if you’ve been tossing and turning at night and losing sleep.
Next to quitting that job that has you telling anyone who will listen how much you hate your job, this aromatic treatment is your best move. Just a few swipes on your body’s pulse points — insides of wrists, temples, and the sides of the neck –help lessen feelings of irritability, relax, and center you. You can also rub into the palms of your hands and breath in deeply for more immediate calming.
Environmental stressors and pollutants can also affect your skin, causing dryness, damage and irritation. When that happens the last thing you want to do is irritate the skin more which is where this anti-stress body wash comes in, incorporating micellar water which cleanses away dirt and impurities without requiring harsh scrubbing. Combined with the gentle cleansing Dove beauty products are known for, you can’t go wrong.
When you’re stressed it’s hard to focus and you’re likely lacking energy as well which is where these capsules from ORB can help. Formulated with caffeine; Huperzine A and Cognizin, which increase alertness and combat mental fatigue; plus the amino acid L-theanine, these pills supports a calm but alert mental state to help you push through and tackle your day head on.
This mist helps soothe skin irritations while also providing hydration. But it’s the formula of organic lavender flower water, noni fruit extract, aloe vera, and bergamot water that also help destress and relax the body and mind.
