While the nation is in a state of mourning and people are looking forward to a long weekend in which to take some precious time to relax and reflect, it’s a good time to think about taking care of yourself. Most of us do the bare minimum when it comes to looking after ourselves, especially if you’ve got a spouse or kids to also take care of, but the old adage of “never pouring from an empty jug” is especially true right now. It’s okay to feel as though you need to take some time for self care, and we’ve got five suggestions of how to do so:

Take a Bath

We know it’s a cliche to suggest taking a warm bath, but there is actual scientific evidence to back up the fact that your brain and nervous system can benefit from bathing. Submergence in water can reduce pain and inflammation and also calm the nervous system, reducing the levels of stress and anxiety in the body and improving your mood. To enhance your bathing, add a little Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil, which is a naturally relieving and intensely calming blend of oils that shrugs off daily fatigue, slows a racing mind and readies you for undisturbed, restorative sleep.

Use a Mask

Face masks are a fantastic way to pamper yourself and indulge in some self care as they usually require you to sit still and actually relax for at least ten minutes! Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask is a skin balancing and calming mask, is ideal for sensitive, blemish prone skin and has a delicate lavender fragrance, which contains linalool, a sweet-smelling alcohol, which has been proven to make your body send relaxing signals to your brain.

Try Some Self Massage

If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we really prefer having certain treatments done by a professional, but it IS possible to have an at-home facial massage which is almost as good, and there are lots of tools to help us do it. From gua shas to jade rollers, these tools can help to drain fluid from the face and prevent water retention. Hayo’u Clear Quartz Beauty Restorer will help soothe tired and stressed skin in just one minute while Skin Abode Cryo Queen Ice Roller will de-puff, plump and firm the skin.

Treat Your Feet

If you’re living an ultra-active lifestyle and are on your feet all day, your soles may be paying the price. Take a look at the bottom of your feet, and chances are they won’t look freshly pedicured. While you can’t exactly stop moving, try combatting the effects of your busy life with a home pedi, using Voesh 4 Step Deluxe Pedi in a Box Chocolate Love. Each product is individually packed with the right amount for a single pedicure and is enriched with key ingredients to give your feet the nutrition they need.

Get Some Sleep

One of the greatest luxuries in life is being able to get at least eight hours of uninterrupted sleep but it’s no secret that many of us find it tougher to fall asleep due to various factors, such as stress. Take control of your surroundings so that you manage to get some beauty sleep. Try using a heated eye mask, a pillow spray to help you sleep better or even drinking a cup of hot chamomile tea before bed. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is the best-selling deep sleep pillow spray and is proven to help you fall asleep faster and wake feeling more refreshed.
