Women face a lot of daily stress…and then stress even more when it shows on our face! If you can sneak away for a little me-time, pull double duty with a relaxing treatment that will leave you glowing and ready to, ahem, face the world. Many facials include scalp, hand, feet or neck massages — or that 15 minute pick me up can be tagged on simultaneously for a small fee without extending your time away from juggling all those home-and-family balls. If you can’t spare the hour, check out these at home helpers that can help you fake it until you make it through a stressful time.
Make a Clean Start
Sebamed’s Clear Face Cleansing Foam’s coconut oil-based formula naturally conditions stressed skin and regenerates the skin’s natural protective barrier, while helping to prevent the formation on new pimples. Pregnancy-friendly — no salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide or retinoids.
suki exfoliate foaming cleanser uses a 100% toxin-free raw sugar scrub with organic lemongrass to gently buff away dead cells, pollutants and other debris, for smoother, glowing skin. Alpha hydroxy acids and acai extract promotes firmness, and chamomile and olive oil softens dry skin.
Mask Your Tiredness
Flora*py Masks will make you want to pull sheet duty. The coconut fiber material, infused with natural botanics to suit your every need or mood, settles onto your skin bringing a bonus boost of aromatherapy. We love the arnica rose and soothing yarrow lavender.
Squeeze in a little faux island time with the pre-mixed 7th Heaven Creamy Coconut Mask soufflé with Shea Butter and turn on some tropical tunes as you kick back on a lounger.
The Eyes Have It
G.M. Collin Instant Radiance Eye Patches deliver quick relief from tired, stressed out eyes, providing a visibly younger and relaxed look in just 20 minutes using a touch of pearl powder to reduce dark patches and a hydrogel texture for cool revitalization.
Belli Eye Brightening Cream, from the company known for natural prenatal beauty goodies with an eye to bump-to-breastfeeding safeness, soothes as the gel instantly seeps into tired and irritated sensitive tissue around the eyes.
