As Valentine’s Day approaches once more, it’s the perfect time to show yourself some love. After all, who’s going to take care of you if not you? There’s nothing more rejuvenating than allowing yourself to indulge in something you love, and no better time to go for it than V-Day. No need to limit self-care to just Valentine’s Day, but make sure to incorporate at least one day for yourself.
How about some self-care ideas to get you started?
1. Take a hot bath.
Who doesn’t love relaxing in the tub with sweet-smelling bubbles, salts, or aromatherapy oils? Bring in a couple candles. Turn on some soft music. Maybe even bring a book or a magazine. Bath time is the ultimate “me” time, so leave your phone behind and unwind!
2. Open that bottle of wine you’ve been saving.
Or pick up a new one! Choose something you know you like—and why not take that glass into the bath with you?
3. Do a sheet mask treatment.
Sheet masks are almost as relaxing as facials—you have to take time to sit back and let the mask do its thing. Enjoy some relaxing music or meditate while you treat your skin. By the time the mask is ready to be removed, your stress will be as well. We recommend #HappyHour Tencel Mask for your happy time.
4. Pamper those tootsies.
Take a few minutes to massage all those tiny muscles in your feet—it can have an impact on your whole body! While you’re at it, why not paint your toenails a fun color?
Even better, how about combining all four of these things into one night for the ultimate in self-pampering? It’ll be the perfect night to head to bed early—which you’ll want to do anyway, because you’ll be so relaxed! Before you know it, you’ll be making time for yourself more than just one day a year.
