Fall in Love with Self-Care with These Easy Practices

Self-care has become something of a puzzle to many of us. No matter how much we talk about it and say we want to practice more, it somehow manages to slip through the cracks of our busy lives. But caring for yourself doesn’t have to be so hard. There are so many ways to integrate more self-care into our lives and help us all to feel more positive and confident in ourselves. These are a few of our favorite practices that make it easy to keep up with our self-care and feel the amazing effects that come along with it.

Find a good skincare routine
Good skincare is an essential part of taking care of ourselves. There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning to find a fresh zit in the middle of your forehead or that you have dark circles under your eyes. Finding a good skincare regimen will help to make those moments few and far between so you can wake up every day feeling refreshed and bright, helping you to always put your best face forward.

Pamper yourself
Make a point of taking a day or a weekend once a month to completely indulge in treating yourself to something that makes you feel elegant and relaxed. Make an appointment at your favorite spa for a day of mani-pedis, massages, and treatments entirely for yourself. It is so important to take the time to remove ourselves from our busy worlds and zone into our own minds and bodies. What better way to do that than a day of pampering and complete relaxation?

Wear comfortable clothes
Nothing is more frustrating than spending the entire day fidgeting and pulling at your clothes because they are so uncomfortable. No one likes jeans that dig in or a bra that feels like it’s cutting off your circulation. It is crucial to find clothes that fit and feel good on your body. Instead of wearing those tight pants, opt for a flowy dress that makes you feel pretty and lets you breathe. Rather than squeezing into that push-up bra you always wear, put on a super comfy one instead.

Take time to unplug
We live in a world that is completely run by screens. We can’t even go to the bathroom without bringing our phones along with us. Although our technology is a huge and important part of our lives, there is such a thing as being too connected all the time. Take some time to go for a walk without your phone or headphones, sit on the porch and read a good book, or even spend a whole weekend in the woods with no cell or internet connection. Taking even 30 minutes a day to completely unplug and disconnect from our digital worlds, can make such a huge difference in our lives.

It can be so easy to get wrapped up in our demanding lives. We are busier than ever before and putting more on our plates than we ever have. With so much packed into our schedules, it isn’t hard for our self-care routines to get lost in the mess. Fitting in some small things that can easily become part of our regular routine is one of the best ways to add some self-care in and help us to be our best selves at all times.  

 

 

Your A-to-Z Guide to Skin Care Today via WSJ

THE CULT OF skin care seems to have reached a fever pitch, with women (and men) accumulating costly, pleasingly packaged products to arrange in their bathrooms at a new pace. Self-taught enthusiasts, known as the “skintelligentsia,” exchange hyper-detailed info about ingredients and regimens in Sephora comment sections and on Reddit Subs like “Skin Care Addiction.” Ingredient apps like Think Dirty help aficionados weigh the difference between mugwort and St. John’s wort. If you’re more of a casual dabbler in the world of serums and sprays, however, the industry’s rapidly changing trends require a bit of an explanation. Where to start?

“It’s good to experiment with skin care,” said Danuta Mieloch, aesthetician and founder of New York-based Rescue Spa, “but make sure you have the basics down first.” (You know: cleanse, moisturize, SPF.) Once a simple regimen is in place, you can explore the hallucinatory range of procedures, from calculable to kooky. We gathered 26 of the buzziest elements of skin care today, but as Ms. Mieloch cautioned: “With skin care it’s almost like a pair of jeans—what’s good for some is not always as good for the others.”

New York Girls Can’t Stop Talking About…

LOTION P50 1970

“The allure of Biologique Recherche, a mysterious skincare brand beloved by so many influential women (especially in New York) was almost lost on me, as there’s not a ton of explanation on the internet and it’s infamously difficult to procure. I would forget about it for months until another low-key, glowy-skinned individual touted it as her secret weapon. What even is this? I’ve thought to myself many, many times. But here’s the thing, one application will demonstrate exactly how incredible this toner is for your skin. It’s a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid and keeps breakouts at bay, pores smooth, and your skin’s texture super even.” — Hallie Gould x Byrdie

“Jesus in a bottle,” “life-changing,” and “The Best Beauty Product in the World.”

You can order online from Shop Rescue Spa.

The ultimate question, of course, is whether or not it’s worth your money. I, and the rest of the P50-loving world, say yes. If you can spare the price, and choose the right formula (go see that esthetician, if you have to!), it will make a huge difference, and you will wonder how you ever lived without it. I do, as I pat it into my skin every night, and then climb in bed and turn out the lights and dream of salt and vinegar chips.

A Celebrity Dermatologist’s Science-Based Skin-Care Routine

On using P50 in the mornings: My bathroom looks like Sephora. I love to test new products and am lucky enough to be sent a lot of them. I use a micellar water in the morning. I am a fan of Biologique Recherche P50 lotion. I know a lot of people don’t like it because of phenol. But if you read the studies, it’s not dangerous, plus you can get a version without it anyway. It makes my skin texture look prettier, and it diminishes the appearance of pores.

On sheet masking to slow down: I also love the little eye patches that makes my eyes look brighter. I do have the Valmont ones...  and Valmont eye creams. I found out about Valmont from Rescue Spa — it’s my heaven.
