5 Unique Self-Care Products to Freshen Up Your Beauty Routine
For your self-care routine you probably use products that you’ve loved and enjoyed for months. Sometimes though, these products can lose their miraculous effect because your body gets used to them or you might simply get bored with using the same essential oil, moisturizer or shampoo every day.
It is advised to change your beauty routine if not completely but at least partially from time to time. If you worry about having to try numerous products before you find the one for you, Amazon has got you covered! Below is a selection of their beauty products that I have rigorously tested and can vouch for.
Let’s kick this list off with this Indian Healing Clay everyone is talking about. The manufacturer says it is world’s most powerful facial and to my surprise it really is! I have acne prone skin and blackheads on my nose that I was trying to get rid of for years trying different products. After using this clay just once, most of the blackheads were gone and my face was glowing.
I can’t say that sitting with this mask on my face was particularly pleasant as it really tightens up and the skin starts pulsating, but the result was worth it after all. To use the clay, mix it with apple cider vinegar or water until you get a smooth paste. Apply the paste to your face and let it dry. For delicate skin, it is recommended to keep the mask on for 5-10 minutes and for normal skin 15-20 minutes are enough. Wash it off with warm water and be amazed! Slight redness of your skin is possible and completely normal – it will go away in less than 30 minutes.
And remember, it’s a very popular product so it’s out of stock often. If you see it in stock, get one fast!
#2. Tongue Scraper
I never knew I needed a tongue scraper before actually trying one. It makes such a difference, so I recommend for everyone to try it. If your tongue has this white layer like mine did, this tool should definitely be included into your dental hygiene.
Having used this tongue scraper for I week, I noticed substantial changes as my tongue looks much healthier and I got rid of bad breath. I use the scraper twice a day – in the morning and before going to bed after brushing my teeth.
Massaging your scalp stimulates the blood flow which fosters healthier skin and makes your hair grow faster. It also reduces stress and relaxes your scalp muscles. When using this brush while shampooing, you ensure deep cleaning of the scalp.
Another thing I noticed after using this massager is that my hair stays clean longer. Previously I had to wash it every day as it became greasy very quickly but now, I can go without washing my hair for two days! This massager is very safe to use for kids also as it has very thick and soft silicone bristles that will not harm your scalp even if you have sensitive skin but will still do the job.
If you are a fan of aromatherapy, I probably don’t need to explain you all the benefits of this essential oil diffuser. All you need to know is that it works perfectly, it has very subtle and elegant design, and it’s pretty small so you can take it with you to your office. Apart from being a diffuser, it is also a humidifier, so it prevents the air in your space from being dry and stuffy. This is beneficial for your skin as it won’t get choppy anymore and for your immune system as well.
For those who are new to aromatherapy, I urge you to try it with different oils of your choice as it will fill your room with a lovely odour. Depending on an oil, you might get a relaxing or energizing effect. Try lavender if you have trouble falling asleep, orange zest for when you have guests over and eucalyptus if you are feeling sick.
I’ve heard a lot about the benefits that apple cider vinegar has for hair, so I decided to try this set. Besides, I’ve already spent a ton of money on really expensive hair products as well as tried cheaper ones, but nothing seemed to work for me.
The set doesn’t contain any parabens or sulphates that are very harmful for scalp and hair. It contains virgin coconut oil and avocado oil that work great with damaged hair like mine. They make it shine and keep it strong, so I definitely recommend!
If you got tired of using the same self-care products every day, I hope this list will help you shake your routine up a little bit. Select something you wanted to try for a while or make an unexpected choice – it’s all up to you!
