When you're juggling a career, a personal life and a family, it's hard not to get stressed out from time to time. But stress is damaging to your body - it can lead to premature aging, eye wrinkles, stomach troubles and even insomnia, among other problems. If you want to kick back and relax after a long day, here are a few tips to turn your home into a virtual spa.
First, light a few scented candles. Aromatherapy has been shown to promote relaxation and calm, as well as boost mood. A light, fresh, tropical scent, like the Elemis Spa At Home Quiet Mind Temple Balm, will help ease your mind and transport you to a faraway isle where all your troubles just melt away.
A long bath is another great way to pamper yourself. Soaking in a warm tub helps you get some alone time, where no one - not your kids or your ringing cell phone - can bug you. Add the right beauty products and your bath can become a space that's good for your skin and hair as well as your mind.
Once you step out of the tub, don't forget the anti aging moisturizer. Gently massaging your skin with a product like Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is an easy way to forget your worries and take care of what matters most: yourself.
