It is important to set aside time each week to spoil yourself and practice the act of self care. What was once seen as an indulgence, is now seen as a necessity for a happier, healthier life. Practicing self care and self love facilitates a healthier mindset and leaves you feeling more confident and equipped to facing the troubles of the day or workplace.
Follow these simple self care practices which can be easily implemented into any lifestyle.
Invest in facials
The skin you’re in, is your skin for life. It is crucial to look after it with a well rounded skin care routine, and regular monthly facials. Facials were once seen as a luxury, that only the most well endowed had access to.
However, with the emergence of more affordable treatments in microdermabrasion, resurfacing peels, and sonophoresis, as well as ease of access to genuine rather than commercial salons, the beauty industry has opened up a new market for everyday people to practice self care through facials.
The benefits of receiving a facial are endless and can target the specific client needs through the use of facial mapping to find your skin type and problem areas. Whether you’re struggling with acne and scarring, ageing and wrinkles or textured skin, regular facials can work to combat those problem areas leaving you feeling more confident in your skin.
Get a manicure
Investing the time and money to get a mani-pedi doesn’t just enhance your external appearance but also benefits your general health and how you feel on the inside.
Not only can you choose your ideal colour and nail shape, to feel beautiful on the outside, getting a manicure will buff dead skin cells and enhance new cell development to increase the circulation of blood and help you feel more relaxed. A mani-pedi doesn’t always have to be damaging or unhealthy. Consider bio-sculpture gel products which are vegan, cruelty free, non toxic, and have a 5 star health rating.
Enhance your brows and lashes
For a feature so minor, your eyebrows have the ability to frame, define and balance your face. There is a certain science behind defining the right brow to your face shape, and most beauty professionals can help you achieve this look. From henna brows, to a brow wax or a brow tint, there are many ways to get the perfect shape and colour to complement your face.
Similarly to eyebrows, your lashes need some attention too. Imagine a world where the trials and tribulations of mascara are non existent. A world where you can wake up, have a shower and leave the house makeup free. This is all possible by investing in eyelash extensions that will change your life and cut your makeup application time in half.
However, if you’re not yet brave enough to conquer extensions, there is a similar procedure where beauticians semi-permanently curl your lashes giving it a lifted look - called a lash lift. Regardless of which one is right for you, both techniques will have you looking amazing, but also feeling amazing.
With autumn just around the corner, it is understandable that you want to hold onto that bronzed summer tan. Fear no more, because spray tans give you the ability to stay a golden goddess all year round.
Not only is it quick and easy to get that perfect streak free tan, but it’s also a lot healthier for you and your body, where the harsh UV sun rays only damage the complexities of your skin. So, enjoy vitamin D the right way and avoid sun tanning by getting a regular natural Naked Tan spray tan to keep that summer glow.
