Don’t let stress get the better of you.

By: Hannah Baxter

The world is a scary place right now, no point denying it. It seems like every time we open up our phones or check a Twitter notification, someone somewhere has done something terrible. From politics to the environment, we sure we’re not alone in saying that sometimes you need to give yourself a mental break to just relax. For us, that involves some good old-fashioned self-pampering in the comfort of our own home. You don’t need much to set up a private spa for one—just a few key products and accessories, and you’ll feel your heart rate returning to a normal human level. Just remember to leave your phone in the other room—this is *you* time. Check out everything we recommend for a blissful at-home chill session.

If you’re having a hard day (week, month, year) it probably shows on your face. Continue your at-home spa after a bath with some indulgent skincare, preferably your favorite mask, a sculpting facial massage, and a face oil packed with skin brightening and nourishing ingredients.

Massaging your skin increases circulation, bringing more oxygen to the tissue, which results in a brighter, glowier you. Five minutes with this face roller will brighten even the most sallow of skin and give you cheekbones for days.
