Feeling run down? Tired and wanting a recharge? It’s time to take care of yourself — here are a few ways you can have the ultimate self-care day!
Self-care has become a huge “thing” around the internet and society and it can get a bit overwhelming but it’s so important to take care of yourself. It can also become a bit frustrating to take time for yourself when you are so busy running around doing it all — how and when can you fit it all in? But you have to keep in mind…you can’t pour from an empty cup. So think of self-care days as a way of refilling your cup!
Awaken Your Senses
Sense of smell is a big one, so start off by lighting your favorite candle or diffusing your favorite essential oil. Use something soothing and relaxing, or something invigorating.
Set The Mood
Even if you aren’t much of an exerciser take 5-10 minutes to do some stretching and breathing exercises. This really sets the mood and gets you feeling relaxed and peaceful.
Jot It Down
Have a journal — write in it! You can jot down what you are grateful for, acts of kindness you want to do — anything positive and motivating!
Drink something you rarely indulge in, have that extra bite of chocolate, whatever it may be — treat yourself, you deserve it.
Pamper Your Skin
Take the extra time to really pamper your skin on self-care days. Wash your face, apply your serums, use a face roller and finish off by applying the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Maxglow No Mess Sleep Mask — it’s been amazing on my skin! It’s an overnight hydrating face mask that attracts and locks in hydration for a more radiant, dewy complexion — it’s also mess-free! It’s perfect if you are looking to even your skin tone and have softer, more luminous skin. As you can see, the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Collection is designed to enhance your natural radiance and give you a lit-from-within glow. Each soy enriched product targets tone and texture. Aveeno is more than just your cleansing and moisturizing brand!

I also wanted to mention, for all of my makeup lovers out there, that I’ve been using the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Maxglow Serum + Primer for the last few days. The two-phase formula of this serum and primer is both lightweight and fast absorbing. With moisture-rich soy and kiwi complex, this facial serum and primer illuminates and leaves skin feeling moisturized and oh-so-soft!
I found both of these products at my local CVS, which is such a convenient beauty destination for all of my makeup, skincare and self-care needs! AND beginning on 12/16 until 12/30 you can Buy One Get 50% off Select Aveeno at CVS! Perfect time to stock up on your Aveeno essentials, or try these new products.
End the day by spending some dedicated alone time, read a book, listen to a podcast, catch up on YouTube videos, binge a new Netflix series. Anything to help you finish off the day relaxed and happy.
