Buying blooms is probably the easiest way to treat yourself that doesn’t require waiting 2-3 business days for it to arrive at your front door. A) who has the patience? B) Delivery is expensiiiive. Head to a florist and create a beautiful bouquet of flowers that you can skip home with on the same day.
Following a daily skincare routine will help reduce feelings of stress with a sense of structure. Facts. So, if you feel like an unorganised hot mess, take 10 minutes out of your day, morning and night, to beautify your skin. All’s right in the world as long as you hit all your skincare steps.
RECOMMENDED DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE ESSENTIALS:
Vital C Hydrating Facial Cleanser by IMAGE Skincare is a-maz-ing for all skin types, especially dry skin. Infused with high levels of vitamin C for its antioxidant and brightening properties, it’ll cleanse the skin whilst providing free radical protection and boosting radiance. And makeup? Consider that gone too.
A hyaluronic acid serum that packs one hell of a punch? We gotchu. Add SKINCEUTICALS HA Intensifier into your daily skincare routine to increase hyaluronic acid levels in the skin by up to 30%, visibly softening fine lines and wrinkles with long-lasting hydration.
Guarding you against skin-ageing UVA and skin-burning UVB rays, ZO Skin Health Daily Sheer SPF 50 is essential for everyday use. With mega hydration to restore and repair the skin’s barrier, you can double up on protection from harmful bacteria, pollution, and dirt.
What would a self-care guide be without facials? But probably not for the reason you’re thinking of. Sure, it’s nice to put your feet up and have someone else take over your skincare routine sometimes, but monthly facials can actually help to minimise stress and anxiety. Pressure points are found all over our bodies, including our faces, which when massaged can help to relieve these feelings.
RECOMMENDED MONTHLY FACIALS:
Alongside a daily skincare routine, our Bespoke Deep Cleanse facial treatment will help you maintain radiance by unblocking pores and decongesting your skin with a combo of bespoke techniques including LED therapy, enzymes, and light chemical peels. It’s giving glazed donut.
Whether you’re trying to prevent premature signs of ageing or claim back your youth, we highly recommend IMAGE Skincare Signature Face Lift. Vitamin C and fruit enzymes work together to brighten the skin by blocking melanin production and lightly exfoliating the surface to encourage cell turnover, while aloe vera and hyaluronic acid soothe irritation and add volume.
Next up in our self-care guide: at-home spa nights, because you can’t always go to an actual spa. Especially if one of your new year’s resolutions was to save money. We’re convinced a single spa night can pretty much solve anything, at least for a few hours until you actually want to deal with it. Skincare + sauvignon blanc = pure bliss.
RECOMMENDED SPA NIGHT ESSENTIALS:
A spa night calls for a Rose Quartz Gua Sha & Facial Roller Set. Made from the finest Rose Quartz, they work to soften fine lines and wrinkles, increase circulation for better nutrient delivery, reduce puffiness, detoxify, and define the contours of your face.
Bringing the studio to you is Circadia Staycation Kit, designed to brighten, hydrate, and revitalise your complexion from the comfort of your own home. Featuring exclusive Circadia skincare products usually only available in the studio, you’ll receive their Lipid Replacing Cleanser, Caviar Lime and Passionfruit Enzyme Mask, Marshmallow Whip Hydrating Mask, Vitamin C Reversal Serum, and Post Peel Balm.
It’s okay to occasionally ignore your notifs and just ~be~ with yourself. Constantly having your phone on means you’re always available to others, which is e-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g. No one has the mental capacity to be on all the time. Even your phone needs to recharge its battery.
But before you sign off, make sure to let your loved ones know what you’re doing. Anyone who doesn’t instantly reply in this day and age where our phones are glued to our hands will most likely set off a search party. *Texts mum “BRB, I’m ✨self-caring✨”*.
