Stress and the holidays…they (unfortunately) tend to go together.
And often, the people who are the most stressed-out put themselves at the bottom of the list, when it comes to care and pampering. So here, dear giver, is a handy list of self-care gifts to help add calmness back to the holiday season. They’re designed to help you feel refreshed, restored, relaxed, comfy, and joyful straight through the new year, and they’re all available on jet.com. You might want to take a “one for me, one for you” approach and spread those calming vibes around.
A K-beauty leader, May Coop has bottled the “secret sauce” to help keep skin looking fresh during the cold winter months.

Nearly 15 years into the sonic-cleansing-technology game, we’re bigger fans than ever of the Clarisonic. The two-speed Mia uses a gentle back-and-forth movement to create a vacuum effect, gently helping remove dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin’s surface and pores.
