Take Care of You!

We don’t need to tell you how hectic life can be—you already know. But we do need to remind you how important it is to take a break every so often and give a little attention to your own wellbeing. And that’s exactly what we’re here for! We’ve got the ultimate self-care day itinerary planned out for you, complete with all the reliable classics for a YOU day that will end with you feeling rejuvenated and ready to face tomorrow with your zen face on. So, put your phone on silent and make yourself something to drink...this day is all yours.

Your Guide to the Ultimate Self Care Day 1. Unplug

The first and most important element of a peaceful day is...well, peace. And sometimes, peace can only be achieved by cutting ties with the rest of the world—at least for a few hours, anyway. Before you begin your ultimate self-care day, remove your phone from the equation. No phone calls, no emails, no social media. This is your time, and the best way to detox from the world is to turn it off for a little while and get some much-needed rest from the pressure of just about everything. And the world will still be there when you turn your phone back on, I promise. But you will have a clearer mind, ready to handle phone calls, emails, and social media with grace.

2. Play Your Favorite Music

The second step in your ultimate self-care itinerary is providing a happy ambiance for yourself, whether that’s through your favorite chill playlist or your favorite TV show. It doesn’t matter if it’s heavy metal or a historical documentary—if it makes you feel at ease, it’s the perfect backdrop for a day that’s all about YOU. And when Netflix asks if you're still watching, the answer is a proud yes, because you earned this.

3. Make a Healthy Snack

When you think of a self-care day, you think of doing activities that will be beneficial to how you feel—whether it’s detoxing from social media or giving yourself a facial. But most people forget that what you eat can play a huge part in how you feel, so why not eat something that will make you feel as good on the inside as you will on the outside? So, this time, try trading the nachos for some hummus and veggies. Or swapping pizza for some avocado toast. Not only will you feel better knowing that you’re taking the high road of health, but your body, in turn, will thank you by bringing your inner glow out. And you might even find a new favorite snack!

4. Smooth Your Skin

Alright, you’ve unplugged, turned on some tunes, and made a healthy snack. Now, it’s time to get down to business. We use makeup to create beauty, but beauty ultimately begins with you and how you feel about yourself. And one of the easiest ways to feel like your most naturally beautiful self is to get smoother skin by removing unwanted hair, even if it’s just peach fuzz that makes makeup application trickier. But be sure to exfoliate first to remove any dirt or dead layers from the surface of your skin. It will make hair removal easier and faster, which are two great things when it comes to this particularly tedious step of the self-care process. And if you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, we totally get it and our professional waxing technicians can help you with your hair removal needs.

5. Get a Facial

Yes, no ultimate self-care day guide would be complete without a good old fashioned facial. There are so many homemade recipes out there, and while not all of them are worth your time, some key ingredients will always be beneficial to your skin. Honey, Lemon, Coconut Oil, Green Tea, Turmeric, Salt, and Olive Oil are just a few key ingredients that can be helpful to your skin depending on what it needs. And if you want a more professional touch, we offer a wide range of facials that can give your skin whatever it may be craving, whether it’s intense moisture or acne treatment.

6. Take Care of Your Nails

Lastly, your hands! Because your hands are almost always doing something, and they deserve a break too. So, give them the full treatment! Remove that old polish and file your tired nails, then moisturize your hands. Then, choose a flattering color to breathe life back into your hardworking hands. Our Nail Spa is the place to go for whatever kind of nail care suits you best, including a 100% organic manicure! So, if you want to take self-care to the next level and leave the work to someone else, let us help you revamp those nails for a new work week.

We can’t say it enough—it’s crucial to take time to step back from the world and care for yourself when life gets too hectic. And this simple, foolproof guide is the only guide you need to get back to feeling your best. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s a timeless plan that never goes out of style, and it’s all you need to reset your mind and body for whatever tomorrow brings.
