Skincare as a Relaxation Practice
Self-care is any activity that you undertake purely for yourself. It’s great to have a regular practice of self-care. 😌
Studies have proven that the act of applying makeup, following a skincare ritual, doing your nails, or taking a long warm bath can help calm your nerves.
If we develop a regular practice of self-care, it builds our resilience against stressors. Self-care rituals can change depending on your mood or routine - and that's ok!
How can a skincare routine become a relaxation practice?
- It can become a soothing and relaxing routine
- Helps you wind down after a long day
- Provides structure in your routine
- You can treat yourself any time you want!
If we are stressed out and we practice self-care at that moment, sure, it relieves the stress. But, if we develop a regular practice of self-care, it builds our resilience against those very stressors. Skin-care can be an effective form of self-care, along with meditation or restorative yoga. ✨
