It’s Valentine’s Day season, and love is the word on everyone’s lips.
We’re big believers in the notion that love should be observed in all forms. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, fresh off the market, or completely spoken for – the kind of love we can all celebrate and nurture this Valentine’s season, is with the person we spend most of our time with: ourselves.
Picture this: you’re strolling the aisles at Target, picking up more than you probably should and putting it into your basket, when you hit the personal care section. You know you need a new body wash, but the shelves are full – there’s just so many choices, and you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options.
If there’s anything we’ve learned on our journey so far, it’s that life is all about balance.
When it comes to your complexion, there’s so much conflicting information about what really works. Some say there’s nothing better than healing on the inside to beautify the outside, while others swear by nourishing their skin from the outside in.
The bathroom is meant to be a ‘sanctuary’ – a place to escape the outside chaos, rejuvenate, and restore mind, body and soul. Truth be told, more often than not it can be the last place you’d want to hang out, thanks to an array of overflowing shelves, mismatched towels and out-of-date toiletries. Sound familiar? If so, we’ve got the lowdown to get your bathroom back on track, looking spick, span and stylish in next-to-no time.
If you guys haven’t noticed 2018 was all about selfcare for me. Taking care of my body physically and mentally was the a big factor this year and although I may have shared my skincare products this year, that doesn’t mean I wasn’t taking care of my whole body.
Did you know that the Egyptians referred to Aloe Vera as the plant of immortality? Now, that definitely sounds like something we want in our skin care routine. Contrary to popular belief, Aloe Vera can be used on your skin all year round, not just for those annoying burns during the summer time. Fun Fact: Aloe Vera is from the cactus family and its leaves provides a clear gel that can help to topically heal and soothe skin. This makes it a perfect and naturally-derived ingredient for sensitive skin.
The New Year can be a tough start after enjoying the holidays with family and friends. Indulging in big meals and enjoying a glass of champagne or two may have been a blast, but don’t wait until February to get back into your rhythm. Avoid getting caught up with outlandish resolutions for 2019; instead, get a fresh start for the year ahead by setting some achievable goals starting with your skin care routine. We’ve put together eight of our top resolutions to give you soft glowing skin for the year ahead.
This holiday season, I am always looking for affordable gifts for my friends and family that show how much I appreciate them. Personally, I think the gift of taking time to pamper yourself is the greatest gift of all. My favorite way to gift pampering and self care to others is Raw Sugar’s gift sets!
