Over the last year, most of us have adopted some or the other daily rituals that bring us peace and happiness. It could be something as simple as just staying off your phone for the first half-hour after you wake up, or taking time to indulge in some skincare. For me, having a beauty routine is very relaxing. It adds some structure to my day, keeping the constant feeling of worry (about the pandemic) and uncertainty at bay for a while longer. So, to share this little joy with you, I have listed out five products that are 100 per cent relaxing to use, full stop.
Tell us your favourites in the comments! We love to hear from you…
House Of Beauty Ice Globes, Rs 3699
Ice facials can reduce puffiness, and these globes with their stems go a long way in massaging your face and minimising pores. Simply pop them in the freezer for 15 minutes and massage your face. P.S: They work very well to reduce the redness and size of bulging acne.
Laneige Lavender Water Sleeping Mask, Rs 1890
The lavender version of the cult-favourite sleeping mask not only soothes the skin but relaxes the mind. It’s great for all skin types but works especially well to refresh and quench dry skin.
Sacred Salts Wooden Bath Brush, Rs 1699
If you love getting an oil massage, dry brushing should be a natural progression that will help you feel relaxed and calm. Brush your body before you go for a shower to exfoliate skin and improve circulation. Remember to begin from your feet to your neck in long strokes. If you find the brush too harsh for your skin, add a few drops of oil on the bristles to soften them.
Nykaa Naturals Gua Sha Stone - Rose Quartz, Rs 1999
In case you missed it, Gua Sha facials have a really good reputation for improving circulation and blood flow, as well as de-stressing skin and sculpting it. For an added dose of soothing, pop your stone in the fridge for 15 minutes and then use it.
Tangle Teezer Scalp Exfoliator & Massager, Rs 900
Healthy tresses begin at the roots, and this massaging brush will not only give your scalp a good massage but also remove product build-up and dandruff, allowing hair to grow in a healthier environment.
