Below, explore the best brands and products that beat signs of stress better than all the rest. Get ready to glow, girls.

Skyn Iceland Face-Lift-In-A-Bag – This brand is literally all about “solutions for stressed skin.” They wrote the book. I have only tried their Face-Life-In-A-Bag and I am hooked. The weekly system is meant to turn back the clock. Eyes will look more rested, wrinkles appear smoother and smile lines fade away.

Indi Lee Squalane Oil – This olive-derived Squalane is 100% pure and promotes elasticity, diminishes age spots and hyper pigmentation, and boosts cell regeneration and oxygenation. It’s super natural and suitable for all skin types. I love slathering this all over my face, neck and chest.

Avène XeraCalm – Another brand who has tackled the calming department and is literally dedicated to sensitive skin. Their XeraCalm line is all about lipid-replenishing skincare that directly targets the source of itching, redness, irritation and even eczema. My favorite is the A.D Lipid-Replenishing Balm. I like to use it on those bumpy areas on the back of my arms.

Pai Calm Redness Serum – Have you girls tried Pai? This super natural line is my latest favorite and pre-wedding go-to. The Instant Calm line is fab. Jessica Richards of Shen Beauty told me all about it and now I’m hooked. The Instant Calm Redness Serum is so nice and goes really well with the Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream. I’m hooked on this whole line.

Erno Laszlo Light Controlling Lotion – This stuff takes me back to the 90s when my mom gave my sister and I our first official skincare routines. Years later, I was reintroduced to this magical lotion and it still works. It’s meant to calm redness and reduce surface oil to refine the texture of the skin and tighten pores, eliminating dullness for fresh-faced results. Anti-inflammatory botanicals calm irritation and support natural tissue repair, leaving skin smooth and hydrated. I’m obsessed with the chic bottle too.

Rodin Lavender Body Oil – This is the holy grail of body oils. Period. It’s formulated to relieve and nourish tired, overworked skin. It’s enriched with a calming blend of French Lavender Absolute and Bulgarian Lavender, as well as Rosehip, Neroli and Evening Primrose to help promote collagen production. It’s the ultimate in skincare indulgence.
