I am in desperate need of self-care, I used to be really good about taking care of myself. However, within the last year, I have fallen all the way off. The only thing I was consistent with was getting a haircut every two weeks.
I know what you’re thinking. How did I let myself get to this state? And the honest answer is that I don’t even know myself. In my mind, I had been thinking about self-care, but I just hadn’t got around to doing it. There are so many things that I want to think about doing in the future. I’ve always loved the idea of a tattoo. My friend likes getting tattoos to make her feel better and they look great. Although, once, she had to look for Toronto’s best ink removal company because she got a tattoo that she deeply regretted. That is my only worry with getting a tattoo as part of a self-care routine. Which is why I’m going to go down another route instead.
Once I realized it’s been ages since I’ve put myself first, I started to think of things I could do to improve my wellness and really commit to my self-care. I bought a foot massager for when I’ve had a long day on my feet, I bought some home gym equipment, and I started thinking about my beauty routine.
As much as I love nail polish, I never go and get my nails done. I also hardly ever polish them myself either. Pre-motherhood I used to go to the nail shop faithfully. I would walk about with a $70 bill, but my brows were waxed, nails filled and designed with a coordinating pedicure and designed toenails.
I also don’t know a lot about beauty products. So when TheStyleMedic suggested we do a Face Mask Friday I was all in. LittleCuteLips and I did a little face mask once, but that is it.
Now let me tell you how it happened…
We each picked a mask, she tried the charcoal mask before so I wanted to try it as well, I know a few people who had previously suffered from acne that use the charcoal mask as well as taking things like cbd gummies UK, USA, and other countries, in order to combat skin inflammation, so this was an extra incentive to give it a try! I purchased the mask probably months prior but it only sat in the drawer. After I mentioned it to Babe he and the Man-Child began to laugh and then told me about all these videos on YouTube. I had no idea, but I already had it so it was a go. He just asked that he could watch me do it. [He didn’t get to watch so I recorded a video for him.]
The mask went on easy, but I felt like I needed more in the packet for better coverage. It did not come with the spatula that I used although it would have been helpful if it did. TheStyleMedic is all thing beauty so she was prepared. Areas to Avoid: Eyebrows, facial piercings, sideburns, and or baby hair
Once it dries it feels like latex. As you pull it off your face you will see all the impurities that were in your skin. That part is gross, but my skin felt amazing after this. It was baby butt soft. I will do this to myself again.
