We all know that we need to take time for self-care for our mental and physical health. But do you consider your skincare routine part of your self-care routine? The benefits of giving your skin a little TLC does not only impact your appearance, but your mental health and wellbeing too.
Having a routine is proven to boost your mood and decrease stress levels. Even something as small as your skincare routine can increase feelings of comfort and calm. Make sure you set aside time every day for your morning and nighttime routine. Just like making your bed is proven to lower stress levels and improve your mood, so can your skincare ritual.
When you take time in the morning and night to give your skin some love, you are also setting aside time just to focus on yourself. These 10 minutes of quiet, self-care time are so important for you to refocus attention on yourself and remind yourself that you’re deserving of TLC too. Our favorite addition to our skincare routine is pampering ourselves with the Skin Wise Organics Purifying Detox Masque. There’s no better way to spend some me-time with a masque on and our feet up.
If you start taking care of your skin, you can begin to implement self care into more aspects of your life too. Skincare is just the beginning; self-care should be integrated in your emotional, physical, personal, and professional life. Once you see the benefits of giving your skin a little love, you’ll be able to see the benefits for your whole self too.
