After you’ve dashed to work, powered through your day, then jacked up your metabolism with a butt-kicking workout, what’s gonna help you unwind? No, it’s not the latest episode of Downton Abby. The answer is lavender.
Lavender is one of the most beloved botanicals and for good reason: It can help you calm down, breathe deep, and—ah, yes!—smell amazing, too. Which is why JĀSÖN®, a pioneering beauty brand (nixing harsh chemicals since the 1950s, when petroleum-based creams were all the rage), designed an entire collection around it.
The products are paraben- and phthalate-free, and available at Whole Foods, so you (and your wallet) can feel good about making them staples in your gym bag.
Here are three picks to turn locker room time into a veritable spa…
JĀSÖN® Calming Lavender Body Wash ($15.75)
When you’re soaked from head-to-toe after a spin class, and only have five minutes to shower before it’s on to the next thing, you want a body wash that’s going to Chill. You. Out. This one’s got lavender and marigold extracts to do exactly that, plus Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to help replenish thirsty skin. Think fresh, not frazzled.
JĀSÖN® Calming Lavender Deodorant Stick ($7.49)
This hardworking deodorant relies on totally non-toxic baking soda to help neutralize odor, and grapefruit seed extract, known for its antimicrobial properties, to keep stinky bacteria at bay. Lavender and Vitamin E mean this deodorant’s also a skin softener. Because, yes—even your underarms deserve a little TLC.
JĀSÖN® Calming Lavender Hand & Body Lotion ($9.99)
Nothing strips your skin of its natural moisture like sweating for 60-minutes straight. But this non-greasy lotion has vitamins C, E, and exotic Kukui Nut Oil to help ensure long-lasting post-workout hydration. Make like a masseuse and rub gently into your skin to reduce tightness and soothe weary muscles.
