I’m stressed. There’s no point trying to beat around the bush about it. Between wedding planning, and a rather last minute out-of-state move, I’ve been getting less sleep and feel wired in general. My emotional rollercoaster ride was definitely showing in my face, until I took a moment to regroup and work in some stress-busting beauty products into my routine. Keep reading to discover a few of my go-to beauty products that relieve stress.
1. Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift
This one’s a budget bender, but there’s no denying that this stuff works. The Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift came out only last month, and it’s the only thing my eyes can tolerate right now. Not only have they been super puffy and dark due to stress, but my seasonal eczema has kicked in hardcore. The thin but hydrating leave-on eye mask combined with the cool message applicator soothes my irritated and tired eyes. It’s expensive at $65 a tube, but I saw a difference overnight with most of the eczema completely gone, and no dark circles or puffiness to be seen. That counts for a lot in my book.
2. L’Occitane Aromachologie Pillow Mist
There are certain scents that can instantly put me in a calmer mood, and this is one of them. This pillow mist combines essential oils with natural scents for a relaxing atmosphere. Made with essential oils of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium, it’s a fresh fragrance that totally balances my mood. I spray it on my pillow and top of my comforter at night, and climb in for some subtle aromatherapy. It doesn’t leave behind wetness or residue, just a gentle scent that eases me to sleep.
3. Freeset Donkey Milk Aqua Skin Gel Mask
Face masks are a great way to force yourself to relax… especially when you’re wearing a sheet mask. I’m always forced to take a second and breathe when wearing sheet masks, since it’s hard to move around in them to multi-task. This gel sheet mask made with donkey milk purifies the skin, increasing clarity while also delivering a punch of hydration. After 15-20 minutes of zen, I’m left with super radiant skin and a relaxed mood.
4. Zapzyt Maximum Strength Acne Treatment Gel
I recently shared how this acne spot treatment helped keep my skin clear during my period, but it’s also coming in clutch for my stress acne. It’s a maximum strength treatment that’s intended to treat those stubborn pimples that just won’t go away, or keep popping back up. I use it as a last resort, if my Curology treatment isn’t doing the trick. It helps reduce the size and redness of zits overnight so that they’re manageable under makeup.
5. Covergirl Outlast All Day Soft-Touch Concealer
When all else fails, concealer saves the day. This new long lasting concealer from Covergirl has a built-in soft applicator to apply directly from the tube. You can cover the dark circles or unsightly blemishes with this creamy concealer, and they’ll stay hidden all day.
