Self-Care at Home
In light of everything going on in the world around us, it’s now more important than ever to practice self-care. Today I wanted to share some of my all-time favorite self-care essentials.
Let's start by highlighting my favorite beauty essentials. If you’re like me, you want to look “golden” even when going to the beach is not an option. I love self-tanner, especially tanning water. To keep your skin nice and healthy make sure to use your favorite hydrating cream often! Hydrated skin is glowy skin and who doesn’t love that? For extra hydration, try glow spray or serum for a natural glowy look at home.
Another way to achieve that “glowy” look is with my favorite DIY sugar scrub. It’s super easy, smells great and makes your skin so soft! You only need a few simple household ingredients; 2 cups of Brown sugar, 1 cup of solid coconut oil and any other extra additions, for example, essential oils or vanilla extract.
To make your DIY sugar scrub follow these two simple instructions:
- Stir together the brown sugar, coconut oil, and your essential oils or vanilla extract until the mixture appears smooth.
- Now your sugar scrub is complete and you're ready for an at-home spa day! Make sure to store the scrub in an airtight container. This scrub will last for weeks.
While practicing social distancing you should still try to keep your normal routines, and that includes doing your hair. For effortless waves or a beachy look, try a wavy spray or sea-salt spray to change things up. Another way to change up your look is with hair accessories! I’ve personally been obsessed with headbands, hair clips and printed scrunchies. You can elevate a simple look real quick with these trendy accessories.
I hope you enjoy these easy self-care tips and my favorite DIY to do while at home.
