Give Yourself a Self-care Treat: Unique Relaxing Products to Buy this Christmas
If anything good happened this year, it’s probably the increased importance of self-care. Since so many of us struggled with anxiety due to the uncertainties of the pandemic, we turned to self-care products to keep ourselves balanced. Unlike before, taking care of oneself — even if that meant skipping work to sleep in — is no longer frowned upon and regarded as selfish. Instead, it is now deemed as an essential activity to maintain good mental health.
Hence, this Christmas is the perfect time to treat yourself to lasting self-care products. The goods listed below have truly pumped up the self-care game, making the ultimate relaxation doable at home.
- Lavender Heat Pillow
You’ve probably heard of heat pillows that you can pop into the microwave. A lavender heat pillow is the same, only it comes with the added benefit of infusing you with a calming aroma. It’s the perfect sleeping companion on restless nights.
- CBD Products
There are so much controversy and mixed opinions surrounding CBD, but the studies so far are all promising, and some doctors have even started recommending it. But before buying one, seek approval from your doctor first, and make sure that you’re buying from a legitimate and safe source.
You can take CBD in different ways. Many people prefer the oil or tincture varieties, which are consumed through a dropper placed under the tongue. You may have seen this type of CBD in viral videos of children suffering from rare kinds of seizures. There are also topical CBD oils for pain, if you only want a good, relaxing massage.
Other types of CBD are edibles, creams and lotions, capsules or pills, and vapes. Using the last one is the fastest way to feel CBD’s effects. However, you should use it with caution, because the jury is still out on whether vaping CBD damages your lung tissues.
- Mini Skincare Fridge
The little fridge you see in beauty gurus’ vanities lately is hitting the stores. It is the perfect self-care gift if you need a cleaner place for your jade roller, under-eye masks, moisturizers, and serums. Since cold temperatures can close down our pores, the skincare fridge easily won the favor of skincare-savvy ladies and gentlemen. You can even sneak in a beverage there to avoid a trip to the kitchen at night.
- Cooling Eye Orbits
If you hate the smell of cucumbers or just the feeling of the veggie against your skin, upgrade to cooling eye orbits. It is a pair of donut-shaped cooling stones that help reduce the puffiness on your eyes. They’re contoured so that they’d sit perfectly on your eye sockets without sliding down. And since they need to be cold, you can also put them in your mini-fridge.
- Facial Humidifier
Restore your skin’s glow by using a facial humidifier. The device emits a cooling mist for up to 10 hours straight. Just put it on your desk or nightstand, and let it do its magic as you work, read, or just lie down.
- Book Subscription Box
If there’s no bookstore near you, and ebooks just don’t satisfy you the way physical books do, sign up for a book subscription box. There are several ones around the U.S., such as Owlcrate, Tailored Book Recommendation, BlackLIT, Unplugged, and Book of the Month, to name a few. For around $10 to $60 a month, you’ll regularly receive a brand-new read at your doorstep.
- Finger Labyrinth
At first, you may find this product odd and useless, but once you figure out how to use it, you’ll never want to get rid of it. The Finger Labyrinth, which is developed by Bamboomn, is a circular tray with dents the width of a finger. All you have to do is trace or feel those dents with your finger, and you’ll feel less stressed. It is a perfect tool for meditation, or just for working on a desk.
- Percussive Therapy Device
If you’re an athlete in training, or someone dealing with chronic pain, a percussive therapy device will be your best friend. It looks like a gun, but instead of bullets, it will hit any sore spot on your body with a pulsating tool. You can also use it after an intense workout session to relax your muscles.
- Acupressure Massage Rings
If acupuncture needles scare you, try out acupressure massage rings instead. They’re stainless steel rings you can run along your fingers. They’re the perfect self-care treat if you’re a writer who barely leaves their computer.
- Facial Roller
Massaging your face with a facial roller, such as jade, rose quartz, or any other gemstone boosts the effects of your skincare products since it allows the products to sink into your skin further. What’s more, it aids blood circulation, improves lymphatic drainage, and reduces the puffiness and wrinkles on your face.
With these wellness products in your stash, your nightly self-care routines will almost feel like a spa, luxurious, and sophisticated. You definitely deserve it, being the hustler and boss that you are.
