Before you tackle a tough assignment, take a mini break at your desk. Bend down, grab your ankles, and take five deep breaths, Rushworth suggests. "Increased blood flow to the brain will not only energize you but also bring oxygen and nutrients to your skin for a perked-up glow." Then spritz your face with an invigorating mist. "It gives you a boost and hydrates your skin," says Elizabeth Vislocky, lead aesthetician for Jurlique in New York City. Avoid water sprays, which can pull moisture out of the skin when they evaporate. Instead, look for an alcohol-free mist with hydrators like aloe vera. Try Walker's Apothecary Rose Geranium Toner ($16, walkersapothecary.com).
