When it comes to relaxation, every inch of our bodies needs attention and pampering when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Relaxation is a practice that requires that all of us is at ease and there are three new products that will help you reach destination relaxation. To start your relaxation process, Body Polish Dual-Action Exfoliating Body Scrub jumpstarts your pampering during your nightly shower. While you shower, apply Body Polish and scrub into your skin in circular motions to exfoliate dull, listless skin cells to reveal vibrant, more youthful-looking skin. The exhilarating scent of grapefruit oil, lavender and eucalyptus calms and soothes frazzled senses.

Aft you get out of the shower, the relaxation continues with A-Lift Retinol Body Treatment that helps hydrate your skin overnight for you to awake to renewed skin that looks healthier and younger. Bakuchiol is a botanical ingredient that will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin elasticity. Before you go to bed and after you get out the shower at night, apply A-Lift and it will help improve the look and feel of your skin for a head-to-toe glow that unveils the look of more youthful-looking skin.

Dry Skin Brushes are fantastic for waking up lackluster skin that needs a pick-me-up at any time of the day. This brush isn’t used with a body wash, but it’s used alone, and the results will leave you and your skin calm and relaxed. When the soft, gentle bristles brush against your skin, they help wake up your circulation and the soothing feeling gives you a calming effect that boosts you right into relaxation mode.

These products can be used every other day and you can work up to daily use as your skin can tolerate them. After a night of relaxation and rejuvenation, your skin will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new day. Take the time for yourself and let go of the stresses of the day and allow your mind, body and skin to relax and create your own personal at-home spa day. Happy National Relaxation Day!

Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum
