With deadlines, essays and exams slowly taking over our lives, don’t forget to look after yourself when you need it most. We’ve all fallen asleep on our keyboards with a face full of make-up, and stressed about our stress spots, so we’ve rounded up five powerful products that will help you carry on studying with a fresh feeling face.
Lush Dream Steam Toner Tab
This wouldn’t be a list of de-stressing beauty products if Lush didn’t make an appearance. Tired skin and a scattered mind will both benefit greatly from this toner tab from Lush. With calming ingredients of rose, lavender, chamomile, and tea tree, popping this tab into a bowl of hot water creates a steam full of calming essential oils. It’s guaranteed to give your skin a hydrating and soothing cleanse, and your mind a bit of peace.
Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads
These pads have been a life saver for my skin during many an exam season. If clay masks seem a bit messy and inconvenient, there are other ways to prevent and eliminate stressed skin that are much quicker and easier. These pads, containing spot fighting salicylic acid and hydrogen peroxide, work to exfoliate your skin, reduce redness and shine, and claim to improve your skin after just three days. I find they are most effective to use just before bedtime to let the ingredients work their magic overnight. Clearer skin is one less thing to worry about with these pads in your night time routine.
1001 Remedies PurAir Purifying Spray
This handy little bottle provides a versatile and frankly magical mist. Not only does it contain wonderful scents like cinnamon and peppermint, but it also contains ravinsara, a sweet aroma which is also antiviral and antibacterial. When our bodies become stressed, our immune systems weaken and we become more susceptible to germs and bugs. But this powerful mist can protect you from germs in the air so you can stay on top form during exam season. Ravinsara also works wonders on reducing stress and fatigue, so your mind can stay on top form too.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Facial Clay
What better way to pamper yourself when you’re feeling completely overwhelmed with deadlines than a face mask? Renowned for its deep pore cleansing properties and all natural ingredients, beauty bloggers swear by this stuff. This clay improves blood circulation, removes dead skin cells, and extracts dirt and oil from your pores, leaving you with fresh, detoxified, glowing skin. You can also use this clay as a target treatment for breakouts, which often pop up during this tough time of the year.
