Despite all the time enjoying the sun, sand and surf, summer can be just as stressful as winter. That’s because one of the drawbacks of being an adult is having to work even when it’s beautiful outside. But there’s something you can do to relax this summer: hang some eucalyptus in your shower.
The trick is trending right now on Pinterest (up 317 percent year over year) with users hanging fresh branches on their showerhead arms away from the water to take advantage of the soothing aroma. But that’s not the only way you can tap into the benefits of eucalyptus. The potent plant can also be found in numerous beauty products, from toners to shampoos and even acne treatments. In addition to its ability to help us de-stress, eucalyptus is antibacterial and antiseptic plus it invigorates as it soothes. Pretty cool, right?
Here are 10 eucalyptus-based beauty products that’ll save your skin, along with your sanity, this summer.
