Five Ways to De-Stress


With so many holiday parties, work events, and chores like Christmas shopping looming on the horizon, not to mention the stress of everyday life, we Beauties sometimes need a little time to unwind and relax. Here are five ways to take some time out.

1. Take a bubble bath.

Turn down the lights, pour in some bath salts or bubble bath, and turn off your phone for 45 minutes. This is your time to enjoy a long hot soak and forget about the day’s troubles.

2. Indulge in a massage.

Never had a massage? Shop around for the best deal, then book an hour-long massage. Getting pampered always makes a girl feel better, and your muscles will thank you for it.

3. Burn some candles.

Lighting a scented candle—even in the daytime—is a great way to relax. Choose a scent such as lavender to calm and soothe you, and light the candle an hour or two before you go to sleep. It will help you have a longer, deeper snooze.

4. Give yourself a foot scrub.

During fall and winter your feet are often in tights or socks and can become dry. Give yourself an exfoliating foot scrub, then rest your feet in a bowl of warm water and rose petals.

5. Snuggle up with a hot chocolate.

Sometimes just taking an hour to enjoy a yummy hot chocolate (with marshmallows!) and read your favorite magazine while the leaves fall outside is absolute bliss.
