Monday — it's generally the most stressful and the longest day of the week. It could be we're tired from the previous weekend, have a lot piled on our plate or are just yearning for the next five days to pass quickly so it will be Friday again. Whatever the case, 5 p.m. rolls around and you could use a little self-care to ease your mind and help you drift off to sleep. These stress-relievers can take the form of aromatherapy, comfy PJs, facial tools, CBD-infused beauty products or products that just feel luxurious on your skin. We've rounded up a bunch of our faves to help melt away your stress, lull you to sleep and help you deal with a case of the Monday blues.
Give yourself a relaxing face massage in the comfort of your own home. ReFa's double rollers replicate an aesthetician's touch, simulating a lymphatic drainage facial. Scoop and knead your way to firmer skin, decreased facial tension and swelling. Enjoy a gentle microcurrent to increase circulation and make your tired skin glow. Even better, there is a built-in solar panel so you can easily charge without batteries or plugs.
Created by celebrity manicurist Mazz Hanna, this soothing, crystal-infused face and body spray is something you'll want to keep on hand 24/7. Mist your face or spritz yourself from head-to-toe with the hydrating, organic aloe and lavender elixir. Inside the bottle, you'll find a piece of clear quartz (known for bringing about clarity, consciousness and open communication). Use any time you need a moment to yourself to relax, refocus your energy and breathe in the gorgeous lavender scent.
We love unwinding with bath bombs after a long, stressful day. The fizzy, aromatic blend of sodium bicarbonate and essential oils helps soothe overworked muscles and prep you for sleep. These bath bombs also contain 25 mg of CBD oil, which is great for relieving pain and inflammation (minus the psychoactive effects of THC). Just a 30-minute soak in the tub will leave you feeling good as new. We love the Relax blend, which contains a dreamy blend of chamomile, frankincense and lavender.
This multi-purpose skin and hair balm treats dryness and has a calming, stress-relieving scent. It's formulated with beeswax, brazil nut oil, cocoa butter and rice bran oil and can be used as a split-end mender, overnight hair mask or a dry skin treatment. The silky balm absorbs quickly and is perfumed with sweet orange oil.
