The long weekend has just passed, and already, real life has sucked out all our glow and energy from the vacation. (Or it feels like it, at least.) Here, we tell you the things you can do to revive your skin and recharge your body.

Go for a warm shower

We know the weather is hot, but a warm shower can help ease tight muscles. Plus, it is scientifically proven that it can improve oxytocin levels, making you feel less stressed.

Exfoliate your face

Dead skin buildup can make your complexion look ashy and haggard. An exfoliating facial cleanser can lift dirt and reveal new skin in a jiffy.

Use a mask

Mimic the feel of a spa by spoling yourself with a facial mask that can revive tired skin. You may opt for a sheet mask (a Korean favorite), a wash-off mask (a widely available choice), a sleeping mask (an overnight salvation for the face), or a facial massage cream.

Give yourself a scalp massage

Another way to ease tension is by giving yourself a scalp massage. This helps improve the blood flow and can even aid in hair growth. Finish the whole experience by applying serum on the ends of your hair to prevent flyaways and buhaghag hair.

Pay attention to tired legs and feet

Let us not neglect the most abused parts of the body: the legs and feet. Soothe the pain and ngalay with a cooling lotion while kneading tired muscles.
