2) BRUSH UP Dry brushing before bathing is an easy way to exfoliate, boost circulation and even minimize the look of cellulite (it’s true). Not to mention that it just feels so darn good. The EcoTools Dry Body Brush boasts a wallet-friendly price tag and looks pretty displayed in your bathroom. $5.

5) NEW FLAME Perhaps the quickest way to turn your bathroom into a Zen retreat? Light a candle. The scent of Bath and Body Works’ Eucalyptus + Spearmint 3-Wick Candle nails that perfect spa alchemy of equal parts calming and invigorating. All that’s missing is the cucumber water. $25.
