I love self-care! I always feel so refreshed and put together, it’s like my life makes sense. It’s not all about face masks and pedicures though and it shouldn’t be an occasional thing. I like to keep an arsenal of everything I need for a nice relaxing ‘self-care Sunday’ so it’s right there when I need it! It is essential that you have everything you need so you don’t stress yourself looking for your items and you can restock when necessary. Here are my favorite items for a perfect self-care day!
One of my favorite self-care rituals is skincare. Using a Jade Roller and Gua Sha Stone really helps with any puffiness because it stays cold no matter how warm my bathroom gets. It helps iron out any fine lines that you see creeping up and it really feels so nice and refreshing. You can grab both here.
