With most countries going into lockdown and the rest of us observing social distance and self-isolation, stress is inevitable. For many people, stress is triggered even without all these bigger problems at hand. They deal with it on a daily basis whether they are at work at home. It is a serious mental health issue that is the gateway to tons of other health problems, both physical and psychological.

And that is why we observe National Stress Awareness Day on April 16th. This day is when we talk about everything from the reasons behind stress and coping strategies. One tried tested way to relieve stress is retail therapy. But today, we won’t just talk about random beauty buys that will make you feel better. We will, in fact, talk about beauty buys that are meant de-stress you.
