Self-care is a major buzzword these days. I’m always on the move—making connections, building my brand, and taking life by the horns—so sometimes I forget to slow down and take care of myself. But it’s important to practice self-care, and paying attention to your skincare regimen can help.
Brighten Your Skin, Brighten Your Attitude
I started Pretty Biznez to help others achieve the royal look they were born to have. However, it’s about more than just looking good—it’s about feeling good, too. When we look good, we feel good about ourselves. When our skincare regimen actually shows signs of improving uneven skin tones within a matter of weeks (or even better, days)…well, that makes us feel good about taking the time to care for our skin. That’s what I call self-care.
Just like any other calming routine, such as yoga, meditation, or even a weekly bubble bath, your skincare routine has the power to improve your mental health. Here are some ways to practice self-care while caring for your skin.
Make It a Routine
Skincare needs to be routine if you want it to work. Why not use your regimen to pump yourself up every morning? Start your day in a positive place so you can get the most out of it—and look fly doing it.
Not a morning person?
Take time every night when all the work is done to wind down with a soothing wash or facemask.
Put on Your Favorite Music
Who’s your favorite recording artist? While you’re doing your skincare routine, use music to get you into the mindset that you want to be in. If you’re getting ready for work, something upbeat will do the trick. It’s amazing what a nice beat can do for your mood.
Getting ready to call it a day? Try something a little more soothing—some light R&B or Jazz should do it. Really sink into that tub of bubbles. Treat yourself.
Do It After You Work Out
Another great time to practice your self-care skincare regimen is after you go to the gym. You’ve treated your body to a great workout. Why not treat your skin, too, for a win-win? Exercise increases the flow of vital nutrients to your skin, helps prevent and heal acne, repairs skin that is damaged. Washing your face and body immediately afterward can help prevent blemishes from forming, but doing your full beauty regimen following exercise will help lock in all that pretty.
Gateway to Self-Care
As the above shows, skin care doesn’t have to be boring. You can do more than stand in front of the mirror while cleansing or moisturizing. In fact, keeping up with your skincare routine might even make you want to try other types of self-care. Go ahead—make yourself feel good about YOU!
