Hello beautiful ladies – and gents! This past month has been insane, and I know a lot of y’all can relate. It feels like every single aspect of my life has been turned upside down. From having to do school from home, to not being able to hangout with my friends, the change has been stressful and emotional, as I know it has been for y’all as well. However by staying home not only are you protecting yourself and people more at risk, you are also helping healthcare employees all over the world as they struggle to keep up with numbers during this healthcare pandemic and I just want to say THANK YOU! You’re amazing 🙂
That being said, lets get into the post! During this extremely stressful time, it’s important to remember to take care of the person who matters the most – you! Self care is SO extremely important, I can’t say it enough. One of the things I’ve learned is best mental health, is taking 1 hour a week to have a relaxing detox bath. This has so many benefits its impossible to cover all of them in this post, but the three are: inflammation, balancing skin Ph, and relaxing tense muscles. Not to mention it can bring you back to your “little kid playing with rubber ducky” days. So without further ado, the detox bath necessities:
Bubbles are honestly just so much fun. It’s physically impossible to say bubbles without smiling, so I guess you could say they are a remedy for frowns.
Epsom salt helps a lot with balancing skin Ph levels and relaxing muscles, so it’s kind of a 2-in-1 combo. Relaxing your muscles helps your body naturally reduce stress and anxiety. When your skin’s Ph is unbalanced, it will tend to be either too dry, too oily, or have more redness, but Epsom salts really help combat that. I actually use a bath salt combo, which has both Epsom salt and sea salt in it.
I’ve never really been into essential oils, but I use a lavender one almost every day. This helps prevent muscle inflammation, which I’m genetically prone too. It also is proven to help balance skin Ph, and reduce redness in the skin.
Ok, last but not least, you need a relaxing, self confidence playlist, with music you adore. Personally, I’ve been soaking it up with some country Taylor Swift, but sometimes I just turn on some calming spa music. (Yes, that’s a real genre…)
Thank y’all so much for reading my post! I hope y’all are staying safe during these crazy times, and know that I’m praying for you!
