Beauty refresh: 7 Products for the best self-care session this weekend
Pamper yourself, stat
A couple of reasons why I'm in love with this rich, hydrating mask: it's multipurpose—use it as a sleeping mask, leave it on for ten minutes for an intensive treatment, or apply on targeted areas that are dry; it smells amazing (perfect for a mood booster at the end of the day); and it has actives to protect your skin barrier.
Tip: Use it with the moisturiser and serum from the Hydra Beauty range for optimum results.
I'm not big on mists but this one is pretty impressive—low on the fragrance, high on the hydration, and great as a toner or for a mid-day spritz. Key ingredients include glycerin (a humectant that helps retain moisture in your skin) and meadowfoam seed oil, and you can even spray it on to prep skin before makeup.
The skin's biome is a tricky thing to balance—harsh products will annihilate the good bacteria while not keeping it clean enough may give you more skin dilemmas (i.e. fungal acne). This serum is packed with an 'Actibiome' complex (prebiotics and probiotics), ATP and extracts from Centella asiatica to equalise skin, reduce redness, and keep your skincare routine to a minimum. Swap this for your extensive toner-emulsion-serum combo for stress-free skin.
A foolproof de-stress tip that only takes five seconds: roll on this scented must-have around your wrist, neck or even temples of your forehead to uplift your senses. I'm a fan of this nifty aromatherapy must-have for its woodsy scent—juniper berries, copahu, rosewood and cedarwood to whisk me for a forest therapy session in the woods.
Before you start to question the necessity of cleansing oils for your locks, we're going to answer you anyway with a resounding “yes”. If you have dry, damaged hair and a flaky scalp, you should most definitely add this to your haircare ritual. Made with 100% natural castor seed oil, this formulation is non-greasy and lightweight, perfect to distribute all over your hair for a glossy finish and to whisk away the grime and buildup from your scalp.
Nothing spells self-care quite like a bath addition to rejuvenate your senses, like this new Aesop body cleanser. Thanks to a purifying blend of essential oils (petitgrain, jasmine, lemon rind and grapefruit rind), showers and baths will never be the same again. Now, cue a deep breath.
A portable aromatherapy diffuser that's ergonomic, looks this good, and can be used anywhere—what else can we ask for? It's sleek enough to make a statement on my vanity and workspace, but also functions just as well. Fun fact: it's the first ever beauty diffuser that can work continuously for up to 25 minutes.
