7 days of self care: easy ways to de-stress during the holidays

7 self-care rituals for your busy holiday schedule

At Kenvue, we believe that moments of everyday care add up. That’s why, as the holiday season looms, we want to empower you to lean into your well-being at a time of year heavily focused on others and overwhelmed with to-dos.

So, what do you do when you’re in need of some self care and don’t know where to begin? Try these Kenvue-approved ways to unwind and de-stress.

Monday: Try a cleanser that helps you wake up

Take a deep inhale while gently massaging your face with Clean & Clear’s® Morning Burst Hydrating Foaming Cleanser. This best-selling gel cleanser uses vitamin C and ginseng to wake you up with a fresh citrus scent, while removing dirt, oil and impurities that build up overnight.

Tuesday: Practice meditation or light yoga

Meditation or light yoga can provide calm and balance during this busy time of year. Refocusing your attention on something calming can allow you to stay centered and maintain inner peace.

Wednesday: Take a bubble bath

Transform your bathroom into an at-home spa experience. Johnson’s® Bedtime Bubble Bath isn’t just for little ones — it’s blend of floral aromas is designed to be soothing, making it a perfect addition for a relaxing nighttime routine.

Thursday: Clean one room of your home

We’ve all heard the saying, “Clean space, clean mind.” Cleaning a small area of your home will allow you to feel productive and can stimulate the release of endorphins, which naturally reduce stress levels.

Friday: Apply a face mask

A face mask is a self-care go-to. The Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hydrating 100% Hydrogel Mask quenches dry skin and contours to your face for optimal absorption. Plus, it’s made from a unique “hydrogel” material that holds up to 50 percent more essence than a paper face mask. Apply, then sit back and relax for up to 30 minutes. (For ultimate hydration, follow with Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Water Cream, which contains hyaluronic acid, a dermatologist-recommended hydrator.)

Saturday: Go for a 30-minute walk outside

Being physically active is important for overall health, and a quick 30-minute walk outside can do wonders for your mental well-being. Even better, walking can serve many purposes: use the time to phone family and friends or head somewhere local to run an errand.

Sunday: Swap your scent

Switch things up and try swapping your hair-care scent with OGX Hydrating + Teatree Mint Shampoo and Hydrating + Teatree Mint Invigorating Scalp Conditioner. This hydrating combo is designed to stimulate the senses while leaving hair strong. The nourishing blend is formulated with Australian tea tree oil, which helps invigorate the scalp — plus, the peppermint, iced vanilla and tea tree scent makes for an all-around sensory experience.
