Between apocalyptic headlines, travel bans, and Royal Family drama (can someone please cut Meghan and Harry some slack?), it’s safe to say that these are rather stressful times. But stop tugging at your hair in nervousness because Savoir Flair has compiled the ultimate guide to help you unwind, de-stress, and disconnect.

Whether you are self-isolating or don’t feel strong enough to face the world – we don’t blame you – now’s the time to invest in yourself and show your mind, body, and soul some love. From a pick-me-up pod to a soothing soak and mood-boosting supplement, discover 10 ways to transform your beauty routine into the ultimate self-care routine.

Set the Mood

One of the best things about a spa? The smell. And thanks to Neom’s portable ‘Wellbeing Pod’, you can bring that spa scent straight to your home with just the touch of a button. It works by consistently releasing a mist into the air, scented with whichever essential oil blend you add to it. There’s one to sleep better, help you de-stress, make you happy, and even boost your energy levels – and they’re all 100 percent natural and organic. It also features a low-energy LED light with calming hues, it humidifies the air around you, and the gentle trickling sound it emits instantly calms the mind and soothes the soul – regardless of what life throws your way.

Focus on Your Face

Pajamas on, it’s time to apply the ultimate pampering product: a face mask. The only problem? Picking one. At a time when stress, anxiety, and a lack of sleep are wreaking havoc on our minds and bodies, it’s important to remember that skin suffers too, which is where 111Skin’s ‘Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask’ comes to the rescue.

The go-to face fixer for the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and practically every Victoria’s Secret Angel under the sun, it combines cutting-edge hydrogel technology with Damascus rose, colloidal gold, and hexapeptides to load skin with moisture and antioxidants. The result? Soother, softer, firmer, brighter skin that will leave you looking like you’ve just returned from a tropical vacay – not cooped up at home.

Ignite the Flame

Nothing sets the mood better than a calming candle, but one that doubles up as a skin-soothing massage oil? Even better. Seed to Skin’s ‘Massage Candle’ provides a soothing scent of vanilla, rose, and precious oud to promote serenity and calm before melting down into a decadent body moisturizer rich in argan oil, shea butter, and coconut extract. Whether you use it to create a soft, scented flicker while you soak, as a comforting body cocoon, or both, it’s a self-care must-have.

Find Some Calm

Mindfulness, meditation, or even just a moment of calm can make a world of difference when your actual world seems to be turning upside down. Whether you need a soundtrack to accompany your soak or are turning those 20 minutes of awkwardly sitting with your face mask on into a meditation session, the Calm app can bring some much-needed, well, calm to your pampering routine. You can transport yourself to the shores of the sea or to the midst of the mountains with its soothing playlists, or you can totally shut off your mind with one of the many meditation programs – the perfect escape for when you’ve exhausted your Netflix list.
