While we used to view self-care as more of a luxury—you know, something we’d fit in when we could find the time—many of us now seriously take the ever-prominent wellness “trend,” making sure to prioritize it amidst the commotion of our incessantly busy lives. Although, why? Because life can be stressful, for one thing. In the end, taking care of oneself, in whatever capacity, is *key* to developing a positive outlook and overall sense of wellbeing. While some people might prefer reading, breathing exercises, or yoga, for those of us who love beauty, self-care involves a night—or even just 15 minutes—of pampering with some of our most sensually satisfying cosmetics. Scrubs, face rollers, and—well, we won’t give it away.
Here are a few of Ulta Beauty’s products that we absolutely adore and urge you to buy for your upcoming night of self-care.
Osea Bestsellers Set for Face + Body
This skin-loving set includes ultra-calming formulas with ingredients drawn from the sea and sun, simulating a trip to a tropical island. Add a few drops of the Undaria Algae Body Oil to your bathwater to ease any tension in your body, and while you’re in there, use the Ocean Cleanser to give your face a deep cleansing massage. After a soak, moisturize with the hydrating Atmospheric Protection Cream and Hyaluronic Sea Serum before applying more Body Oil for good measure.
Treehut Tahitian Vanilla Bean Shea Sugar Scrub
A lavish body scrub is the epitome of self-care. This plush one uses sugar and shea butter in place of salt to soften skin, and as soon as the lid is removed, the warm, comforting scent of vanilla bean melts away stress. Take your time as you purposefully rub it into your skin, paying particular attention to your feet, elbows, and knees. Spa-ahhh.
Ouai Scalp & Body Scrub
Two things: Head massages are incredibly relaxing, and since your scalp is made up of skin like your face and body are, it requires the same level of care. This popular scrub from Jen Atkin removes buildup from products like dry shampoo and pollution while nourishing and balancing the skin on the scalp with coconut oil and water-binding plant sugar. And because hair grows from the scalp, as a result, your strands will appear healthier, bouncy, and shinier. Oh, and did we mention how absolutely divine it feels and smells?
