Self Care: Why It’s Needed And How To Go About It

Self care: the act of doing something in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. When thinking of beauty we often just look at what we need to do to make our exterior look like we are okay. But sometimes we need to reflect on what we need to do to make sure we are feeling good both inside and out. There are ways to incorporate beauty into your self care routine. Giving yourself time to relax and have a mini spa day is one the best ways to care for yourself. It can give you time to reflect on things if that is what you need or give you some time to forget about all the stresses of life.

As a working college student, I can relate to having a lot of stress and getting overwhelmed by things. When things get too hard for me to handle I have a few things I like to do to give myself a break and one of those things is a at home spa day. I spend the day doing my own pedicure, taking a bath with my favorite bath bombs from LUSH, washing my hair, doing facials, essentially I go the whole nine yards.

You can also do the same. Take a day for yourself soak in a nice bath, go through your whole beauty routine in depth and take your time with it. Do multiple sheet face masks. Sheet face masks are awesome to relax in. Meditate or do some yoga. Take the time to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your face and body because when you feel good about yourself you start to show off that self confidence. And we all know beauty starts from within. So if you feel good about yourself it will show on your exterior.
