Learn How To Relax Your Mind, Dissolve Stress And Revitalize Skin
Taking a few moments for ourselves is NOT something to feel guilty about. As women, we tend to put everyone else first, husbands, children, friends, employers, whoever! It is our nature – and probably for good reason since we generally operate on the nurturing side of care-giver. But, let’s face it! We don’t have to be this person to everyone else all the time. We need to nurture ourselves as well!
Learn how to relax your mind and skin by taking a few minutes to unwind with delicious scents and therapeutic massage. Take yourself on a mini-vacation away from it all using the following advice from our expert contributors:
Sculpt Away Stress While Supercharging Your Skin and Senses
Treat yourself to a stress-busting beauty treat by massaging a deliciously scented, complexion-beautifying body lotion from head to toe. As far as fragrances go, choose coconut to take you back to your favorite tropical getaway, citrus for an invigorating wakeup call or lavender for a soothing floral aromatherapy experience.
The best body lotions contain the following ingredients: peptides, antioxidants, Emblica fruit, green tea, Acai berry and Hyaluronic acid. This combination of ingredients firms and evens out skin tone while reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Multitasking moisturizers combat stress by beautifying skin in many ways in just minutes while providing aromatherapy benefits.
Dissolve Stress and Revitalize Skin
Soaking in a bath seems like a custom that disappeared around the time women stopped wearing dresses to do housework. But a relaxing soak in a tub filled with sea salts is not only relaxing for your mind but also good for your skin. Sea salts help to draw out toxins and allow minerals to soak in. That is why taking time for a “tubbie” is making a comeback – and for good reason. You will feel relaxed, refreshed and your skin will be glowing. Keep the water warm (not too hot) and add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sea salts with relaxing essential oils. Don’t forget to moisturize immediately after drying off – and layer on more relaxing scents by using a lotion with calming essential oils.
