By making time in your busy schedule that’s devoted specifically to self-care, you can actively lower the stress-producing hormone called cortisol, according to a recent report in Psychology Today. But you don’t need science to sell you on an at-home spa-day, because who doesn’t want to feel and look better without even leaving your bathroom?
These treatments have you covered from head-to-toe, (literally) so you can spend an afternoon exfoliating, polishing, and nourishing, or you can choose to do them ad hoc, whenever you feel like a little pick-me-up. In either case, create a luxe at-home spa experience by unplugging for the duration of your treatment. Deep breathing from your abdomen can help make sure your lungs receive enough oxygenated air, lowering your cortisol levels and easing anxiety, according to a report published by the Harvard School of Medicine.
Products on this list help increase cell turnover, plump and hydrate skin, feed hair, and smooth feet, diminish the appearance of cellulite and much more. So, get ready to relax, and create an indulgent at-home spa experience in the privacy of your own flat.
