5 Tips + Products for Post-Holiday Recovery
Partied a little too hard this holiday season? Then your skin needs a little love—and these 5 products + some handy little recovery tips to go along with them!
This Balm Concentrate is a LIFE SAVER. I mean, it's already easy on the eyes... but your skin will rejoice when this balm comes into play! May's skin collection is hand-crafted, using only the best, exotic and nutrient-dense ingredients. They're always sourced and harvested mindfully, and in a sustainable manner. But, let's get to The Blue Cocoon: It melts to touch, has a cool, calming effect and the blue tansy completely erases any feelings of anxiety. It magically releases heat and provides nourishment and relief to delicate, inflamed and irritable skin. Use this and the results will yield a quiet, clear and calm complexion—you'll and never look back!
HOW TO USE: Use it to repair and restore skin on your face, your body, your lips, your under eyes...it's incredibly versatile and oh so lovely.
This right here, is a must for recovery. No one wants an annoying headache all day... so, grab yourself one of these incredible roll-on aromatherapy oils by Vitruvi and feel your tension and headaches dissolve into nothing but serenity. It's comprised of pure essential oils in a base of almond and castor oil, blended to release tight muscles, tension and stress (or even a late night) that can be the cause of pesky headaches. The scent is refreshing and the oil blend somewhat cooling with ingredients such as peppermint, camphor and eucalyptus.
HOW TO USE: Roll it directly onto the sides and base of your neck. It'll feel cooling, and somewhat tingly. Then, massage it into your neck and shoulders and breathe deeply.
Over-coiffed, dull and dry brittle party hair... be gone! This incredibly hydrating hair masque moisturizes and restores all hair types - yep, you curly and color-treated gals especially! With ingredients such as organic coco creme, organic oats, organic aloe vera gel and wild-harvested seaweed extract..this masque is definitely bringing those dead strands back to life! The scent of this product is an aromatherapeutic sensory experience! With organic essential oils including rose, sandalwood and lavender... ooh la la! Your tresses will be feeling soothed, hydrated and healed in no time!
HOW TO USE: Apply this conditioner like masque after shampoo, about twice a week. Leave it on for about 3-15 minutes (I always opt for longer), making sure to use a heat source like a warm towel or hair wrap to encourage deeper hydration and healing. Then, once the time is up..rinse!
Late nights can bring many things, but one thing in particular... dark circles. Don't worry, this Eye C treatment is formulated to protect and renew your delicate (yet possibly tired) eye area. Loaded with antioxidants, humectants, peptides, fruit acids and rare botanical extracts, this product will revitalize the skin around your eyes, as well as minimize the fine lines and dark circles you have bestowed upon yourself. ;)
HOW TO USE: Gently dab the treatment under your eyes with your ring finger after applying your full face moisturizer, morning and evening.
Hydrating yourself is probably more important than all of these other products and things I've mentioned. Without water... you're nothing. Okay, a bit dramatic, but you get the idea! These glass water bottles are awesome: glass + silicone, BPA-free, phthalate-free, dishwasher safe and they're perfect for fitting most cupholders too! Plus, they have a small opening for no-spill sipping, a perfect
no-leak seal, they're doing your body good and they are 100% adorable. WIN!
