Now that 2022 has arrived and the new year is in full swing, it's important to remember to take care of yourself. If the holidays were less than relaxing, give yourself some much-needed downtime in between work and socializing (or not socializing, depending on the current COVID climate in your area).
That being said, stress is a very real factor for just about everyone right now — which is why we put together this list of products that might help you relax and remind you to take a moment for yourself.
This clever massaging contraption will knead your tense traps and stiff neck, all while warming your muscles for some ultimate relaxation. It has two slots you can put your arms in, which can help to release your shoulders so you can embrace a soothing massage.
Let your next bath give you the most with a three-pound bag of luxurious epsom salts. Just add two cups to hot bathwater and soak in the benefits of relaxing magnesium and lavender.
This reusable face mask can be used for either hot or cold facials. Just pop it in the microwave for calming heat therapy or stick it in the freezer to tighten and close pores post-facial.

If you're in need of a quick dose of aromatherapy, these delightful incense sticks will fill your room with a sweet botanical scent in just 10 minutes. It comes in a set of eight and a small mat to place them on.
Is your skin feeling a bit dull or lacklustre from all the holiday festivities? Well, this toner and vitamin C kit might just bring it back from the dead. The packets come separately, so you can decide how much to mix together based on your skin's sensitivity. The toner and vitamin C come with a smaller bottle that you can use to mix them together.
This eye massager is a total game-changer for anyone who stares at a screen for most of their day. Shoppers say it can help relieve headaches, tension and improve sleep, too.
You can combat dry skin this winter with a cool mist humidifier. This one is great for larger rooms because it has a six-litre tank that'll last up to 60 hours. It comes with an app that allows you to control it from your phone, but you can also use it with Alexa so you don't have to get out of bed to turn it on or off.
You can use this handy massage gun to release all your aches, strain and tension, so you can feel more relaxed in your day-to-day. It's small, compact, and the perfect thing to use in between RMT appointments. You can currently get it in black or white.
You can protect your hair and skin while you sleep with a luxurious silk pillowcase. This one won't soak up your night-time face serums and creams, like cotton pillowcases tend to — plus, it'll keep your luscious locks from breaking.
