I've been a self-care fanatic since I was young. Which was unusual for an 80's teen. I wrote about it before but basically I had a bad reaction to deodorants, which burned my skin, and there began my organic beauty journey, in a nut-shell.
It wasn't until I gave birth that my self-care regiment became obsolete. I was lucky to get sleep, and long showers were a thing of the past. I fell off the wagon and hit the ground hard. Eventually I started to regain my rituals. Which started with me spending on quality products.
The idea is to invest into your self-care, which your mind will internalize value. I'm not talking about shoes or purses but soaps, lotions and products that go onto your skin. Allow your skin to feel luxury.

Below are a few pointers, five to be exact, that address how you can adopt you're very own self-care ritual. Recognizing your body as a fresh canvas, full of life.

Take back some time in your week to complete the ritual of your own self-care. Make it a priority! From one busy female to another, no one else will take care of you, unless you do first. Value yourself to make or keep a self-care, toxic-free, lifestyle.
