As women, we have the tendency of putting ourselves last when it comes to self care. Whether we have children, are married, work full time, are single with two dogs (ahem), whatever the reason, we don’t always make the time to care for ourselves. Life is chaotic. The ease in which we so easily forget to put some time aside to treat ourselves takes no effort on our part at all. What does take effort is trying to remember to put that extra time aside. The importance of self care is essential in my opinion for our overall mental, physical and emotional health. It doesn’t need to be something that takes away from what you would do as part of your daily life, rather, I’m going to give you a few ways to incorporate it as part of what you already do.
I used to think that it wasn’t important to take care of my skin. I figured no matter what I did, my skin was eventually going to experience the signs of aging and that as that. Mind you, I was in my late teen’s, early 20’s when I thought so. After expressing interesting in makeup and learning how important skin care was, I began to understand the significance of self care.
I’ll be honest, I don’t always follow my own regimens religiously. I’m human after all and sometimes I just want a few extra minutes of sleep or I’m just too lazy that day to do anything. And yes, I have fallen asleep with my makeup on before and no, the skin care goddesses will not smite you. Your skin will not hate you forever if you do it once or twice (or three times). However, for the most part, I stick to a consistent regimen and that’s what I’m sharing with you today.
