My my my, what a situation we’re in, right? It’s been over a month since Circuit Breaker began and honestly, is anyone else feeling like dousing themselves in lavender oil and calling it a year? We can’t escape the current climate and one of the best things we can do now is stay calm, it's simple but it's true.
What we do to stay calm differs from person to person, whether it’s a home workout, baking, meditation, taking a hot shower, curling up to a good book, or using beauty products that promises to calm and soothe you. We’re sharing our favourite products to help you relax and de-stress. Take some time for yourself and pamper yourself with some of our most relaxing beauty buys.
If your skin is starting to act out from the stress, this Anionic mask is going to help. It acts as a magnet to pull out micro-size pollutants and other impurities from your skin that built up throughout the day. It’s gentle enough on your skin to be used every day, and it contains all the good stuff to boost moisture and elasticity in the skin, while preventing wrinkles and lightening up any dark spots. Remember to turn your phone into Do Not Disturb mode before you put this on for the ultimate escape.
Up your home facial routine with a salon worthy mask - Flowwe’s Regeneration mask with BioCellulose Fiber Mask. The mask is known for its amazing skin adhesion and skin toning effect. Plus, you get to pick a Phyris Essential Ampoule to suit your skin’s needs. If your skin is feeling dry, choose the Deep Moisture ampoule to inject some hydration into your skin. Or if you’re looking for extra radiance and energy, the Beauty Boost is for you! Concerned about fine lines showing up on your skin? The Ageless Ampoule can definitely help plump your skin for a smoother appearance. If your skin is looking irritated, the Calm and Even Ampoule can help relax and reduce redness. While the Stressless Ampoule will help regenerate and tighten the contours on your face. Lastly, Matt and Fine helps to mattify the skin, and refine the appearance of pores, leaving you with a smooth and even complexion.
After a long day, one of the most relaxing things to do is to rub on some natural essential oils and call it a day. There’s an array of essentials oils dedicated to helping you relax, mentally and physically. With so many options out there in the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We’ve round up three of our favourites from Natural Living Asia to help relieve stress, relax your muscles and boost your mood. Curio Elixir’s No 23 Manage My Stress Roll On is pretty self-explanatory. It contains a blend of peppermint, geranium and frankincense, which will help you relieve stress (surprise surprise!), clear your mind and improve positivity. While the No 22 Relaxing Muscles Roll On is a favourite to help relieve any pain on your muscles, joints and tendons. Made with a mix of eucalyptus, sweet orange and frankincense oil, this is perfect to help relax your muscles after a day of sitting at your WFH set up. Lastly, the No 21 Stimulating Mood Roll On is exceptionally crucial in today’s landscape. Rub it onto your temples to help lessen worries and unwind your mind, and indulge your senses in a blend of sweet orange, rosemary and geranium oil. Pro-tip is to rub them on your pulse points (wrists, temples) before you fall asleep so that you can fall into deep sleep and wake up refreshed the next morning.
Put your mind at ease during the day and slather on some sunscreen to protect your skin. Inside this tube contains an uber hydrating, vegan sunscreen that helps prevent premature ageing. It protects your skin from UVA, UVB rays and blue light (the light emitted from your laptop and phone!), as well as environmental aggravations. Highly rated and reviewed, many have touted it as the best sunscreen they’ve ever used.
Did you know that the repetitive motion of brushing your hair helps to ease muscles and calm your body? Your body adapts to a comforting routine and evokes a relaxation response. This can help calm you down and is a perfect way to unwind after a long day. We love a product that does more than it should and this hairbrush from For Beaut is definitely one. Not only does it detangle your hair, it soaks up oil grease and sweat residue with its purifying fibre bristles, while smoothening your hair. The bristles help to create a feeling of acupressure, essential for scalp care which will help keep it healthy and improve blood circulation. After all, there’s little things more relaxing than clean, silk hair.
