Seasonal stress, too many sweets and a whole lot of celebrating can take a toll on your mood and skin. Here are four tips to help you stress less and get your glow back during the hectic holiday season.
1. Soak It Up
Our recipe for the perfect relaxing bath is simple: Fill the tub with hot water, dim the lights, grab a book and add a handful of this miracle-working bath soak. Gigartina Therapy Bath is made with pure powdered seaweed and leaves your skin feeling silky-soft and hydrated. It’s also loaded with lavender and plumeria to help you chill out, no matter how much your mind may be racing.

2. Exfoliate and Glow
Sweep away dead skin and holiday stress with our Plant-Based Body Brush. You can control how much pressure you apply, but the sisal-fiber bristles on this dry brush truly feel like heaven. Follow with a warm shower or, if you’re feeling brave, a quick blast of cold (channeling Wim Hof) to energize from head to toe. After the shower, give yourself a full-body massage with our skin-softening body oil for spa-level relaxation vibes and unbelievably glowy skin.
3. Plump Up the Moisture
If ever there were a moment to go extra on moisturizer, this is it. Freezing temps, blasting heat and too much party can wreak havoc on skin. We love face oil for supercharging skin with moisture, but our Essential Hydrating Oil goes one step further: It plumps skin and reduces the look of fine lines. It’s also loaded with geranium plus seven other soothing oils. Here’s a trick: Smooth a few drops between your palms, inhale deeply and pat into skin. The smell alone will relax you more than a two-week holiday. Seriously.
4. Zen and in the Zone
It’s 1 a.m. Do you know where your mind is? Blissfully lost in dreamland, thanks to this soothing relaxation oil. Our Vagus Nerve Oil helps melt away every last inch of stress and promotes a sense of perfect well-being. A must-have for a stress-free holiday. Apply a few drops of this targeted treatment to the back of your neck before sleep and any time you need a deeper level of grounding and zen. Bonus: The chamomile-and-juniper-oil blend smells absolutely incredible.
