Mois­turise & Chill

Women's Health (South Africa) - - { DISCUSS ! -

Treat skin, lower stress: women who mas­saged their face with skin prod­ucts twice daily for 28 days saw lower lev­els of cor­ti­sol (aka the stress hor­mone), says a study con­ducted at the Univer­sity of Parma in Italy. “Stress makes us feel out of con­trol; rou­tines give back some of that con­trol,” ex­plains Dr Amy Wech­sler, a der­ma­tol­o­gist and psy­chi­a­trist. Any rit­ual can help, but we love Eliz­a­beth Ar­den Eight Hour Cream Skin Pro­tec­tant Night­time Mir­a­cle Mois­tur­izer (R435). The laven­der scent will have you breath­ing eas­ier in no time. Or burn the SoyLites Oud Ori­ent Soy Can­dle (R240) – the wax, made from nour­ish­ing soy­bean oil and Vi­ta­min E, can be mas­saged into your skin once melted.
