Rose Quartz For Your Face
Turn your home into an impromptu day spa with the help of a facial roller, an ancient Chinese beauty tool that aims to detoxify the skin, promote lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness and under-eye circles. Some people also find it helps relax the muscles in the jaw. $59 from The Facialist.

Sleep Well 
Research shows that lavender reduces anxiety and promotes sleep, and this spray from Salt by Hendrix can be used on both skin and hair — spritz lightly on yourself or your pillow for instant calm. $18 from Tonic Room.
