With the beauty industry obsession with self-care growing by the day, this trend has made us look at our everyday routines and wonder if we’re doing everything we should to keep our bodies happy and healthy. In an age where time is of the essence, it’s always useful to evaluate your beauty and hygiene routines and ask, “Is this for convenience or self-care?”
While there are many new products and trends out there that promise rejuvenation and nourishment, there are two classic ways to keep your skin, body, and mind healthy without breaking the bank.
- Introducing Baths to Your Routine
While common culture dictates showers are the most efficient option to maintain good hygiene, baths are still a great way to get clean and be rejuvenated on a regular basis. Bath soaks and bubble baths both nourish skin and revive your body and mind at a deeper level. Taking the time to relax, focus on nourishing your body, and recharge your mind are all important factors of healthy self-care.
Experience a well-deserved escape with a bubble bath formulated to cleanse and moisturize skin. Ingredients like Provitamin B5, Vitamin E, and essential oils are great for sensitive skin types because they gently yet powerfully hydrate skin. Sensitive types should choose unscented bubble bath formulas to protect skin from irritation or inflammation.
Bath soaks focus on soothing muscles, detoxing skin, and calming the mind. Look for bath soaks that use Epsom salt and coconut as their primary ingredients, as these target sore muscles and hydrate dry skin simultaneously.
While showers quickly cleanse skin and hair, baths care for skin at a deeper level. Just like consistent skincare or daily hygiene, bath routines are an important element of all-inclusive self-care.
- Using Perfumed Body Powder
Perfect for those who live in humid climates or deal with excess perspiration during warmer months, perfumed body powder is the self-care transformation your daily routine needs. Potato starch, oat protein, and talc powder soothe dry skin and can be used to treat eczema or dermatitis. This classic hygienic staple deserves a place in your self-care routine to hydrate your skin and keep it dry.
To receive all of the benefits of body powder, start by cleansing skin with plant-based glycerin soap. Follow with a vegan body lotion or cream that moisturizes without clogging pores. Before the lotion fully dries, apply body powder to lock in the moisture and prevent irritation. Body powder has many other uses, including preventing chaffing, smoothing shaved legs, and setting makeup.
Transform your self-care routine by taking the measures to nourish and rejuvenate your body and mind. Recognize what your body needs, depending on season, age, or sensitivities. Treat yourself to luxurious self-care at home with these two timeless personal care essentials.
