Whether you’re sore after a tough workout or your back is full of knots from a long day hunched over your laptop (we’ve all been there!), chances are you could use some of these muscle relaxing products. Soothe your muscles and work out those kinks with some super comforting bath and body care!
Stretch Out Those Muscles
One of my favorite things to do after a long day is roll out my back with a foam roller. You don’t need any expensive tools to get the job done! Just 5-10 minutes of rolling out my back and hips can make a world of difference. This is a super simple way to improve alignment, posture, and stress-level! If yoga is your thing, try some restorative poses (or just spend some a few moments in child’s pose).
Take a Soothing Bath
One of the best ways to relax those muscles is with a soothing bath! Some of my favorite soaks for sore muscles include the Aching Muscle Super Soak from Elemis ($63.50), the Coconut & Hibiscus Dead Sea Salt Mineral Soak from SheaMoisture ($12.99), the Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak from Mio Skincare ($40), and the Mineral Bath Salt Eucalyptus from Ahava ($22). For a budget-friendly option you can pick up at your local grocery store, I love the Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak from good ol’ Dr. Teal’s ($5.99).
Massage In A Muscle Balm
When I have an ache that won’t quit, I reach for one of these trusty salves! For some luxe options, nothing beats the Revitalizing Therapy Gel by African Botanics ($65), the Musclease Active Body Oil by Elemis ($63.50), or the Soothing Muscle Gel by Tata Harper ($42). The Perfect Body Muscle Therapy by This Works ($33) has cooling peppermint and eucalyptus, and it’s perfect for tired feet, shoulders, necks and temples. Looking for a classic? Lucky Tiger Muscle Rub ($12) is a go-to for a reason.
Try A Heating Pad
Sitting down to unwind with a Netflix miniseries? Why not throw a heating pad over your shoulders? This Anti-Stress Microwaveable Heat Wrap ($9.99) is perfectly designed to wrap around your neck and undo a whole day of craning your neck to see your Insta feed. For an ergonomic design to heat your entire back, try this option from Amazon ($24.99) in a cute gingham print. Then turn in early for a good night’s sleep!
