Creating and developing a self-care routine is crucial in maintaining a strong relationship with yourself. Actually, being able to take care of your body and to treat it as your temple is quite therapeutic.
A good self-care routine can also help you become more self-confident. You will feel better in your own skin and more empowered to action your day.
How to create your own self-care routine when you’re busy?
If there’s one thing that I completely understand nowadays, it’s how challenging can be to balance your career with your life & well-being. However, it’s SO important to take some time out just for yourself. If not, you’ll soon feel like you’re running a marathon. It’s actually OK to have leisure time and to use it however you like.
Your self-care routine shouldn’t take too much of your time actually – if time is a constraint for you. For example, you can start by paying attention to you when you wake up. Your skin will need hydration, you might want to take a shower, do anything that feels refreshing. With a great morning routine, your day will flow with positivity and your productivity level will increase significantly.
You should also dedicate a bit of time for your self-care routine before you go to bed . Therefore, even if you’re busy you can save one or two hours per day only for your self-care 🙂
My updated skin-care routine
I’m into more organic and more natural products lately. I was able to find some very exciting organic brands on the Notino website, so I had to try them for myself and share my experience with using them today.
First of all, I run a warm bath and apply a sheet mask. Actually, running a warm bath does wonders from time to time. It will relax you and set the a calm mood for the night. You blood will flow easier and you will be able to breathe much better. Moreover, it can also improve your immunity system, because the higher temperature is killing bacteria.
Then, I add this bath foam from Natura Siberica to the running water for it to lather. It smells divine and leaves my skin so soft. I highly need the hydration right now as I’m currently on my Roaccutane treatment. If you have dry skin, you have to try this.
Up next, I wash my body. This body wash – Fiora Siberica from Natura Siberica is very different from all the products I have used before. At first, it smells very strongly as straweberries, then it fades away. And that’s a GREAT aspect – it means it’s truly organic. As the label states – its ingredients are 99% organic.
When I have more time, I apply a body scrub too. This one smells so nice as honey & cinnamon – it reminds me of a sweet shop. Also, scrubbing your body is very beneficial – it will improve your circulation and it will also help in removing dead skin cells from the body’s surface.
After I dry my skin with a fluffy towel, I apply a hydrating body butter which is highly needed for me these days. I love the Rich Siberian White Body Butter by Natura Siberica as it’s VERY heavy. The benefits of using body butter are many but my favourite one is how well moisturised your skin is after you’ve applied the product.
In the end, I love the smell of the Dolce & Gabbana The One perfume. Therefore, I spray it on my wrist before I go to bed.
All things considered, having a self-care routine is really therapeutic. I love spending time with myself and I believe everyone should focus more on themselves, at least from time to time. What is your skin-care routine and what tips do you have for mine?
Until next time,
Miss Andrada 🙂
