Self-care is so important for overall health and well-being, and that couldn’t be more true than during these challenging times. Whether you’re needing ideas on how to relax after a stressful day, miss being pampered at the spa, or just looking for ideas to fill your extra time at home, this post is for you! There’s no better time to give your mind, body and soul some extra love.
Here are a few ideas on how to turn your bedtime routine into a mini-spa session.
There’s nothing better than letting the stress of the day melt away than with a relaxing bubble bath. Turn on some tranquil music, pour a glass of wine, drop the bath bomb in and give yourself some soaking time. If you haven’t tried aromatherapy, consider this the perfect time. Fragrance from certain oils, such as lavender, helps to promote calmness and relaxation. Try diffusing some lavender into the air during your bath to create a peaceful sanctuary.
It may be a little while longer until spas open back up, but why not give your skin a professional treatment at home? Whether you’re testing out a new skin-care line, or sticking to what works, take your time cleansing your face and applying your products. Let them work themselves into your skin. Keep in mind, your skin repairs itself at night, so your bedtime routine should be focused on giving your skin what it needs. Every few days, add a face mask to the menu to keep your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Now it’s time to give your teeth some love! Don’t fall victim to just brushing your teeth quick before hitting the sack. Instead, think of your oral hygiene as another self-care ritual. Brush your teeth really well, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions. Do you prefer toothpaste or tooth brushing powder? Either way, you’ll be in for a treat with our 100% natural ingredients and variety of delicious flavors. Next, try flossing up with our Silk Floss, infused with Mint Essential Oil. Flossing not only allows you to get tiny pieces of food out from between your teeth, but helps to stimulate your gums and lower inflammation. Lastly, don’t forget about your tongue. If you haven’t tried a tongue scraper yet, you’ll be amazed how this device can take your clean feel to the next level!
After your mini-spa session, be sure to pour yourself a tall glass of water. Hydration before bed is so important and allows your body to rid itself of unwanted toxins.
We hope you find some time for self-care and relaxation - in whatever capacity that may be - during these challenging times. Stay strong, stay safe, stay healthy. Sending love from The Dirt!
