Go back to school looking better than ever! It’s that time of year again! The start of a new school year is always exciting, but it can be nerve-wracking to prepare for. We bet you have the perfect outfit picked out for each day of the first week but have you made the time to book a facial? What about a massage? While you’re scrambling to figure out your class schedule, we’ve compiled a checklist of spa treatments and some of our favorite beauty items to help you look your best and lower some of that stress and anxiety. 1. Get a Massage If you’re feeling stressed out about the new school year, then it’s time for you to book a massage. Research has shown that massages help to lower cortisol levels – the stress hormone that leads to extra fat around our abs by up to 50%. This also helps to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression. Research has also shown that massage therapy can help you sleep better, for multiple reasons. Massage increases delta waves, which are linked with deep sleep. In addition, massage activates the parasympathetic part of our nervous system, allowing your body to relax and sleep easier. 2. Get Glowing Skin Regular facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering! They are a great way to ensure your skin is healthy and glowing and they have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin. You might as well start incorporating a facial into your routine at least once a month while you’re young – it’s best to be proactive instead of reactive! Extra Bonuses: Try some of our favorite skincare products that will work wonders after your next facial! Pratima Healing Neem Oil Courtesy of Pratima No one wants to start the school year with acne. Or t-zone redness. Or blackheads. (Jeeze, the list can go on and on, can’t it?). But look no further, because the skincare gods have graced us with Pratima’s Healing Neem Oil. From ingredients such as avocado, fatty acids and lavender, this is your new Holy Grail Oil. Put it on after your toner at night, and wake up with less irritated and more refreshed, glamorous skin. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment Courtesy of Juice Beauty Who has time for tired eyes and fine lines? No one. Thankfully, Actress-Turned-Lifestyle Guru Gwyneth Paltrow understands that. That’s why she created an eye treatment for her organic beauty line that will hydrate your eyes and reduce wrinkles. Think of giving your under-eyes a smoothie full of juices, nutrients and antioxidants- because that’s what this product essentially is. To apply, start from the inner corners and gently move to the outer. Then, rub in any extra serum and you’re good to go!
