Once the semester begins, you may notice a shift in your schedule. Hanging out with friends, polishing your nails, or even eating and sleeping may not be able to compete with work. While work should take priority, so should your health. Whether it’s once a day, once a week, or once a month, schedule time to take care of your body and mentally unwind. Trust us; your brain, hair, nails, and skin will thank you. Rejuvenate and re-energize with one or all of these nine treats designed to make you look and feel your best.
