Busy. That word, we hate saying it but it just slips out.
We get it though, life is busy, where does one even find the time to set aside for some regular R&R? Somewhere between; waking up on a Monday, a quick skincare routine, working, eating, drinking water, socialising, exercising, sleeping, and keeping up with pop culture and current events with a side of mindless scrolling, watching an entire series and bedtime on Sunday, before the fun begins again?
Just take five.
Rest and relaxation or self-care, whatever you like to call it, helps us stay present and grounded - there are different dimensions of self-care and wellness but ultimately it's about taking care of your physical and mental health. It's important to set aside time for yourself to re-energize and fill your cup; do the things that make you feel like you have your shit sorted, boost your mood, and make your hair shine and skin glow a little brighter.
This is our version of GTL: Gym, Tan, Laundry - like a shot of self-care for busy people. It's multi-mask, relax; all you need now is to take five minutes alone. We have everything else sorted. These are our recommendations for a dreamy mask duo, and something to read or listen to:
