One of the best things you could ever do for yourself is self care. We spend all our days caring for everyone around us – spouses, kids, parents, siblings, friends who need us. It’s such a great joy to be able to help the people you love but I believe that in order to give your best self you need to take care of you first. You are the source and your well being is so important because everything you do flows from it.
Every week I reserve Sunday as my day to rest, recuperate and recharge myself for the new upcoming week.
I call it my Pamper day. It’s nothing fancy, really easy to follow and it leaves me feeling relaxed and ready to take on the new week!
Here’s what I do:
Deep exfoliation of my face
Full body scrub
A lot of people underestimate the importance of exfoliation the body too. It’s also bound to get dead skin so it’s good to exfoliate to rejuvenate the skin and the circular movements help with blood circulation too!
For this I use the Beauty Factory’s Tissue Oil Salt and Sugar Body Scrub. I love the smell and it leaves my skin feeling silky soft and squeaky clean!
On top of your standard/ daily 3 step (cleanse, tone, moisturize) it’s important to go the extra mile with a face mask at least once a week. Face masks help to hydrate the skin, pull out impurities, and keep your bare face glowing!
I love trying out different sachet face masks which you can find at your local pharmacy. My favorite brand for these is the Montagne Jeunesse brand. They have a variety of masks for all skin types in many different flavours. They are affordable and my skin has taken really well to them.
I tried the Tea Tree and Spearmint cloth mask, my skin loved it and I’ve been using it since! I’m prone to breakouts and this has really helped.
After all of this I slip into some comfy pjs and watch a movie or read a good book.
