It is so important to have days where you allow yourself the time to just take care of your body & relax. It might be just for an hour or it could be for a full morning, afternoon or day! I try to do something calming for myself at least once a day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Today I am going to share some of what my self care everyday includes – my routine & the products I love!
Lately my self care on a day to day basis looks like 15 minutes of wearing a face mask or oil & meditating at the end of the day. I do this by turning down the lights to dim in our rim, lighting a candle, closing the door & just being still. The aroma from the face masks I love helps me just take deep breaths & enjoy the moment. Some days I am just not in the mood to meditate & so I will use the face mask time to paint my nails or stretch – maybe even take a hot bath!
There’s so many different ways to go about taking care of your body & more importantly your mind – and for me, using natural products that rejuvenate my skin is my favorite!
I’ve linked 6 of my favorite products below & explain why I love them & how often I use them – to be clear I do not use them everyday! I love being able to mix up my routine & I think your skin responds better to when you are changing things up rather than getting used to one certain product. Here we go!
This is a new favorite! I have been using it for about 2 months now & am seeing such good benefits. It is a combination of moroccan clay, rosemary, fenugreek & shavegrass. What I enjoy about it is that it is an exfoliating mask, but it is really gentle. I use it about once a week after I wash my face in the evening.
It comes as a powder & with each use I just mix a few drops of water with a teaspoon of powder in my hand. From there, I massage it into my skin & let it sit for 20 minutes. After that, I use a soft, clean face towel.. run it under hot water & then softly scrub my face clean with the wet towel.
It’s a little more pricey, but definitely worth it as I’ve used it multiple times & feel like it’s barely used!
This acne & scar removal serum is what that I’ve been mixing into my routine for a few months now! I put it on right before I go to bed, after I use a face mask or wash my face. I mainly use it around my eyes for the anti-aging benefits & on my chin/cheek bones for the acne removal part. It leaves your skin looking & feeling hydrated & tight!
Okay… can you say game changer?! One of the things that I’ve noticed in the last 2 years has been the wrinkles around my eyes & forehead increase. It’s when I smile & for some reason it gets to me because I feel like I am too young for wrinkles haha! But because I squint when I look at my computer screen sometimes or when I’m outside for a long period of time, it’s happening. It’s one of my insecurities & honestly I am working through not being so self-conscious of it.. but it definitely doesn’t hurt to have a product that helps my skin!
So I found this eye cream on amazon a few months ago & it has totally transformed my skin! I am so much more confident because I feel like the amount of wrinkles have decreased as well as just the intensity of them. I also use this cream on my whole face (it says eye cream but on the back it writes that you can use it everywhere!) & I use it every other day or so before I go to bed! I typically switch off between this one & the CLEARstem serum 🙂
You guys know how much I love this brand & I’ve talked about this face mask before – it’s even on my Shop my Favs page! I love using this about once or twice a week. I let it sit on my face for 20 minutes & then use warm water & my hands to gently scrub my whole face & then rinse it off! It cleans my face so well & I am just obsessed with this mask!
I use this stuff almost every day! Whether it’s a few drops in a hot bath or just directly applying it to spots that are sore, it works so well for my aches & tight muscles! I’ve been putting it on my neck & cheeks for the past 2 weeks because of my wisdom teeth surgery & it works wonders!
Tylor & I also use this oil to give each other neck or back massages (part of one of our favorite homes dates, read more on those here!)
This has been one of my favorites for over 3 years! I love using these salts to soak in the hot tub & just relax at the end of the day. It smells amazing & is so good & relaxing for your skin 🙂
Well those are all of my favorites right now! I hope this helps you guys find some new products you love & allows you to just give yourself some time for you!
