This year, we will be bringing you exclusive beauty shelfies, each with a different focus on different aspects of your wellbeing and beauty needs.

To kick off 2019, and because we know how stressful January can be with the return to work, we are bringing you the best beauty products to beat stress and keep anxiety at bay.

This Works Stress Check Hair Elixir

Hair holds onto scent more than any other part of the body, which is why you should be applying natural essential oils onto it to help reduce stress, anxiety and tension.

This Works Stress Check Hair Elixir is made from a blend of chamomile, patchouli and neroli to help support you when you are feeling a little fraught and stressed.

Additionally, tamanu oil helps to hydrate the hair and keep it glossy and gorgeous, so don't worry about the elixir drying out your delicate locks.

Darphin Vetiver Aromatic Care Stress Relief Detox Oil Mask

When the stresses of everyday life take their toll on your skin, it can appear, dull and dehydrated.

The Darphin Vetiver Aromatic Care Stress Relief Detox Oil Mask is made with a blend of 99% natural ingredients including vetiver, French lavender, marjoram and golden flower petals. These help to tackle the signs of stress and strengthen the skin's natural barrier to prevent further irritation.

Upon application, the mask feels incredibly cooling on the skin and helps your mind to unwind thanks to the soothing essential oil blend.

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil

Aromatherapy Associates bath oils are some of our favourites for when we need a relaxing pamper night.

The De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil contains essential oils of rosemary, chamomile and frankincense to help relieve tension, anxiety and stress and leave the mind and body beautifully relaxed. Plus, thanks to its blend of natural botanicals, skin feels soft and soothed after use.

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix

Perfect if you want to tackle the signs of stress on your skin as you sleep, the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix works wonders to rejuvenate and revitalise.

Fortified with a marine ingredient known as padina pavonica, the lightweight formula melts into the skin to smooth out the skin and combat the effects of stress, fatigue and pollution.

Due to its very creamy texture, it doesn't feel heavy or greasy on the skin so would work on all skin types.

Mio Liquid Yoga Space Spray

Make your home and your personal space calm and zen-like with Mio's Liquid Yoga Space Spray.

Made with lemon, cypress, mint and lavandin, the spray helps to alleviate tension, stress and anxiety and even help with headaches thanks to its powerful and soothing scent.

Follow up with the Mio Liquid Yoga Bath Soak for a totally relaxing experience, which also helps to soothe aching muscles.

ESPA Muscle Rescue Balm

ESPA's Muscle Rescue Balm is perfect for soothing away muscular aches and pain caused by tension and stress.

Infused with cooling peppermint and eucalyptus, alongside warming clove bud and West Indian Bay oil, the balm melts into the skin to rejuvenate tired limbs and leave you feeling relaxed thanks to its calming scent.

Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Cream

For when your skin is super stressed out, your regular moisturiser just won't make the cut. Instead, opt for a super soothing formula to reduce redness, inflammation and aggaravation.

We love the Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Cream, which has been specially formulated with a blend of mushrooms such as Reishi, Cordyceps and Chaga to help reduce the effects of external aggressors on the skin.

Made without chemical nasties, the cream is suitable for the most sensitive of skin types and will help to repair damaged skin, reduce irritation and inflammation and relieve stress.

Sarah Chapman Liquid Facial D-Stress

A facial spritz designed to reduce the signs of stress, Sarah Chapman's Liquid Facial D-Stress contains a unique Smartsome™ X50 targeted peptide to strengthen the skin's natural barrier and keep it shielded against external aggressors which could cause damage.

Super soothing and calming, it's perfect to use post-cleanse and throughout the day when you want to refresh your makeup.

Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser

When skin becomes stressed, it can become irritated and sore to the touch, which means you might need to switch out your usual cleanser.

Dermalogica's Ultracalming Cleanser is a gel formulation that feels incredibly soothing and cooling upon application with the skin. Suitable for even the most hypersensitive of complexions, it contains lavender, raspberry and echinacea to reduce inflammation and redness.

You can use twice and daily, but we find it works brilliantly in the mornings when skin can appear a little puffy.

Valmont Eye Instant Stress Relieving Mask

They might be a high price point but the Valmont Eye Instant Stress Relieving Mask are perfect at reducing signs of fatigue and leaving the eyes looking bright and refreshed.

With incredible decongesting and anti-fatigue properties, the eye masks deliver a smoothing effect that reduce dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.
