5 Products to Help You De-Stress the Look of Your Skin
From never-ending to-do lists to struggles at work or home, stress can plague the best of us. While a one-way ticket to a carefree tropical island seems like the perfect remedy, I think we can all agree that that’s not always possible. This is why having a strong skin care routine is so important because—from wrinkles to breakouts to dark circles—stress can show on our skin in a big way. Help to fight the visible signs of stress we turn to skin care products, like the five we share below!
Decleor AROMESSENCE™ Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum
This natural serum is formulated with the very best essential oils of neroli, sandalwood, petitgrain, sage, parsley, and juniper berries to help comfort skin that’s been exposed to daily stress. It can hydrate skin, refine the appearance of skin texture, and restore a radiant-looking complexion. What’s more, the aromatherapy from the essential oils can help you unwind as you enjoy the scent of the serum. Use in the morning, before your day cream. Warm two drops of the oil in your hands and press into a clean face and neck, massaging gently in upward sweeping motions.
Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer
Stress can have both short-term visible signs and long-term premature skin aging effects on the skin including skin fatigue and redness. Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer—formulated with rose gallica botanical extract, mannose, and chamomile—helps to reduce these visible signs. The lightweight formula diminishes the signs of stress while helping to repair the skin barrier making it less susceptible to the effects of ongoing daily stressors.
