Self Care Means Taking Care of Yourself This Holiday Season
As the temperatures drop and signs of winter begin to display themselves, thoughts of the holiday season quickly come to mind. That anticipation of gathering with loved ones, preparing special meals, and making wonderful memories sparks a tinge of excitement.
Then, just as quickly as the excitement came, it is overshadowed as you recall the chaos too. From the crowded stores to the long to-do list, the holidays can be bittersweet.
A major key to enjoying the winter holidays is taking time out to take care of yourself. Stress, long hours of preparation and the colder, drier air can wreak havoc on your skin. Here are three ways to help you de-stress, feel your best (and enjoy healthy glowing skin) as you embrace the upcoming festivities.
Tip #1 Stay Hydrated
The holidays can be demanding as we fit more tasks into the preparation for events. In the midst of the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to forego one of the easiest forms of self-care, and that’s drinking plenty of water. Hydrating the body inside is essential to feeling your best, and just as important is nourishing your skin from the outside.
Natural products such as coconut oil will help rehydrate the skin and prevent signs of aging. Another option is the hydrogel mask that we offer. It will give you that spa experience while replenishing your skin with vitamins C and E, aloe vera, and collagen stimulating nano-active gold. The ready-to-use sheet design is used by 5-star spas and is one of the easiest ways to pamper yourself.
Tip #2 Find Solitude
When celebratory preparations have you on your feet all day, wind down with some personal time. Yoga and meditation can offer multiple benefits for re-energizing the body, mind, and soul; a great way to enjoy solitude. Finish the day off by treating yourself to our eye mask and foot detox bundle. The all natural eye masks will rehydrate the sensitive skin and remove puffiness around the eyes while you sleep. Likewise, the foot pads offer pain relief and improve sleep with infused calming essential oils such as lavender or rose.
Tip #3 Enjoy a Fun Activity
Be sure to take a step back and enjoy the winter months while you can, but don’t forget to moisturize before venturing outdoors. An all natural shea butter will provide long-lasting moisture and is rich in vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids, which are great for protecting your skin from cold, dry wind.
Taking time out to savor the season whether you enjoy playing in the snow with your kids, or admiring the scenery on a brisk walk, choose an activity that will get your heart pumping and encourage laughter, fun, and relaxation. After all, the best part of any time of year is finding time to spend with loved ones.
These are just a few suggestions, there are multiple ways on how to pamper yourself at home. At Doppeltree, we make self care easy, so you can look and feel your very best. After all, you should pamper yourself regardless of the time of year, because you’re worth it!
