Because August 15 is National Relaxation Day, we thought we’d put together a list of some of our go-to skin care and wellness products that help us wind down after a long day. If you’re in the market for soothing products you can buy for whole-body relaxation, then check out some of the deals from our Self-Care Sale below! You deserve the treat, Gorgeous.
FOR CALMING AROMAS
One of our favourite ways to make stressful days in the office a little better is lighting a candle from Happy Island. With so many unique scents to choose from, there’s sure to be a fragrance that tickles your fancy—from the crisp smell of freshly laundered linen to tropical scents that bring the beach into your bedroom! The best part? Each candle is hand poured with love and comes in gorgeous packaging that’ll look amazing on any nightstand.
For those that love the calming scent of lavender, this all-around surface spray is a must-have! With distilled sugarcane alcohol and cleansing oils, this spray is lovely for a quick aromatic cleanse for hands, sheets, car interiors, and more!
FOR DEEP FACIAL CLEANSING
The most important step for any skin care routine is cleansing. For those that enjoy wearing makeup, it’s highly recommended for you to double cleanse; this revitalizing cleansing balm from Banila Co. is your best bet. It glides onto the skin like a dream, melting away even the most stubborn waterproof makeup with ease! Simply massage the product into the skin, emulsify with a bit of water, and rinse to see the magic happen. Because this makeup remover also contains Resveratrol, it even leaves the skin feeling firmer and more nourished after every use!
What’s more satisfying than giving our skin the deep cleanse it deserves? These adorable mini facial cleansing brushes are perfect for getting the dirt out of every nook and cranny on our faces. It comes with two different kinds of bristles: 1) coarse bristles for getting a thorough cleanse on the oiler parts of our face, such as the t-zone, chin, and hairline, and 2) fine bristles for delicate areas like the cheeks and under eyes. Plus, its compact waterproof designs make it incredibly easy to use (and snap cute photos of for the ‘Gram) so it’s suitable for even the newest of skin care newbies. Use this with a gentle foam cleanser for best results!
Before layering on your serums, it’s good to have a toner to prep your skin! This toner from Dear Klairs is highly sought after for a good reason: it helps alleviate dryness, reduces inflammation, and balances out the skin’s pH level. With a balanced pH level, the serums that you use after this toner are boosted and are able to perform to the best of their ability!
FOR DETOXIFYING TIRED SKIN
No relaxation regimen would be complete without a bit of exfoliation! These peeling pads from Neogen are the perfect combination of chemical and manual exfoliation, as each gauze pad is soaked with natural exfoliating ingredients that renew the skin from within while its textured material sloughs off dead skin cells at the surface. But remember: don’t get too addicted! While it may seem satisfying to scrape away at our skin every day, it would be best to limit your exfoliation to twice a week!
There’s nothing like a good face mask to help soak away your daily woes! This fizzing charcoal bubble mask from Rude Cosmetics comes highly recommended for dullness, dry skin, and minimizing the appearance of pores. With its naturally extracted apple juice and bamboo vulgaris sap, this mask gives amazing hydration while its charcoal material helps draw out impurities from your skin—plus, the bubbles give it an added element of fun!
FOR A SMOOTH BODY
Don’t forget your body, now! While we typically think of our faces when we say “skin care”, we shouldn’t gloss over giving our bodies a good scrub once in a while. We love this smoothening scrub from Zenutrients because it’s packed with antioxidants, giving the skin a firmer and more renewed appearance with every use. Plus, its incredible aroma is sure to brighten any coffee-lover’s day! Apply this to your damp skin after cleansing in the shower up to twice a week for optimal results!
After you refresh your skin in the shower, make sure to always bring back its moisture with lotion! This intensely hydrating lotion is amazing at bringing dull, rough skin back to life; it also provides long-lasting moisture so you don’t dry out throughout the day! Because its hypoallergenic, paraben-free, and 100% natural, this lotion is recommended for all skin types—even sensitive skin!
