If you're anything like us, you reserve Sundays for a little R&R. It's a time to unwind, slather on a face mask, (maybe) turn off your phone, and show your mind and your body some love. Designating a specific time for self-care rituals is a great way to end the weekend—and in turn, kick off the week ahead—on as much of a high as possible.
While these wellness practices might come in many forms—going on a hike or journaling, for example—it never hurts to have some products on hand to make the most of your at-home spa day. And that's why on Friday afternoons, we're exceedingly thankful for the glorious convenience of Amazon Prime. Now that we're finally in the weekend mindset, we can order said products tonight and still expect them to arrive on our doorsteps by Sunday.
So in that TGIF spirit, keep scrolling to see the beauty products we're ordering now for #SelfCareSunday.
You're bound to find this clay powder hiding in the vanities of just about every Byrdie editor and for good reason: This single-ingredient product is incredible as both a deep-cleansing mask and a spot treatment, as the clay sucks out grime lodged deep in our pores. (Translation: Blackheads, begone.) Add it to a bath, and you've got a detoxifying, skin-softening treatment.
If you aren't foam-rolling yet, Sunday is a great time to start. It's a foolproof, gym-free way to stretch out your muscles, improve your posture, and deeply massage the oft ignored connective tissue that holds your body together. All this translates to a more aligned, slimmer, de-bloated you. (It actually mimics the moves you might do on a Pilates reformer.)
If you're looking to add a little bit of adventure to your meal prep, look no further than Moon Juice founder and all-around wellness guru Amanda Chantal Bacon's first-ever cookbook. The recipes are eclectic—think Salted Maple Reishi Granola and Turmeric Cider Pickles—but everything we've made is absolutely delicious, and it's a surefire way to break anyone out of a cooking rut.
