Self care is important. What is self care? Self care is the self initiated actions you take for your own overall health and wellbeing. Self care can be simply allowing yourself 20 minutes of peace and quiet, treating yourself to a nice meal, exercising, or pampering yourself. I treat my hair and skin to a self care ritual every weekend and I am careful to protect this time and make it a priority. I will share with you time to time my self care regimen and the products I use to make myself happy.
Because this is a hair blog let’s start with the hair. I washed my hair with Suave Naturals Daily Clarifying Shampoo. It has been a while since I last clarified my hair and my scalp felt like it needed a nice thorough cleaning. Next, I deep conditioned with Shea Moisture 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque. I realize I have not posted a full review of this masque so I will post it up next week. In short the masque gets the job done. After applying the DC I detangled my hair with my fingers, covered with a plastic cap and let it sit for 25 minutes.
I love skin products probably more than I love hair products. I love South of France bar soaps they smell so good and make me feel fancy. My bathroom currently smells like a field of lavender after using it. I exfoliated my hands, elbows and knees with Shea Moisture Olive & Green Tea Body Scrub. Lastly, I hooked my feet up with Mr. Pumice Pumi Bar because there is nothing cute about cracked or callused heels.
Cleansed my face with TGIN African Black Soap. It is very effective and mild enough for daily use. Black soap is great to use on oily and combination skin as well as skin that is acne prone or suffers from eczema or psoriasis. Next, I exfoliated my skin with Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask which is my bae skin care product. My skin always feels so good after using this. Lastly, I slathered on Freeman Acai Purifying Clay Mask which is good for all skin types.
What do you do to treat yourself? Have a favorite product you think I should check out? Leave a comment below. Cheers.
