Because we could all use some self-care and pampering right now, am I right?
I honestly can’t believe we are half way through November. Anyone else’s mind still stuck in April? It’s been quite the year! 2020 certainly forced us to throw our expectations and routines out the window. And that might feel a bit overwhelming to some of us.
One of the easiest ways to shut out the noise and bring yourself back to a grounding place is a self-care night at home. Now, the word “self care” is definitely overused these days. It’s almost to the point to where you feel pressured to self care, which totally defeats the purpose!
At the end of the day, self care simply comes down to prioritizing yourself. Put everyone else’s needs aside and focus on doing one or two things that bring you joy. Even if it’s just for 10 minutes! It doesn’t have to be some extravagant night with rose petal baths, champagne flutes (although I’ll never say no to bubbly!), and 20 different skin care products.
What does self care look like to me?
It really depends on the week! Sometimes, it’s just giving myself a quick mani pedi. Other times, it’s taking a long, steamy shower and testing out new shampoos or exfoliators. Some days, it’s simply plopping my booty in front of the TV with a big bowl of popcorn and watching all the girly things.
And other days, it’s all of the above!
If you’re a beauty lover, like us, you’ll enjoy this list of must-have self-care products for a little night of pampering at home.
