Happy Tuesday Beauties!
Self care is so important both mentally and physically to keep us going on a daily basis. It’s not selfish to take a hour or two to relax and rest your mind! Let’s face it, we might not always have the time or funds for a weekly spa day, but today I’m sharing with you five ways to pamper yourself at home with a d.i.y spa day
• First set the mood! Pick a space in your home that’s quite and relaxing. Light candles or essential oils for relaxation and turn on you favorite, relaxing music.
• Next, mask it! There’s nothing like relaxing with a good facial mask and cucumbers over your eyes with your favorite music playing! Don’t forget to moisturize after you remove your mask.
• Now, it’s pedi/mani time! During this time, I like to squeeze in a deep conditioning with towel hydration. Simply apply a deep conditioning mask to your wet hair and wrap a warm towel around your hair to restore the moisture in hair. This method is equivalent to using a steam dryer. Once I’m done with my mani/pedi, I apply Vaseline to my feet to restore the moisture and put on socks to lock the moisture in.
• Last, I spend the last few minutes of my time journaling.
Self care can be as simple as reading a book or taking 30 mins to yourself. There’s no right or wrong way to indulge in a self care experience. The goal is to restore inner peace. Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Always make time for you.
