Did you know that the lips on your skin is 75% thinner than the rest of your body? A lip sleeping mask is the easiest way to pack a punch of moisture to your hard working pucker. Apply a thin layer of this over your lips at night and you’ll wake up to soft, kissable lips.

The Hasayan Rose facial mist was a limited edition facial mist made with Desi Gulab that has been brought back on popular demand. It blooms seasonally in the city of Hasayan and smells absolutely lovely. In summer, I always carry a small bottle of facial mist or rose water in my purse. Spritz a little onto your skin after your morning commute and see how it instantly cools and refreshes you! I’m guilty of using it as my mid-afternoon pick me up when I’m feeling those post-lunch snoozies.

If you’re not a DIY kinda gal, there are a whole bunch of shea butter bath, body and hair products you can pick up.
