How often do we actually take the time to care for ourselves? I mean really set aside a block of time for self care? For me, my Monday through Friday grind starts at 5:15 a.m. so there is little time for meaningful self care unless I get up earlier. For me that is not desirable as I covet what little sleep I get at night.
Today is Saturday and there is nothing on the calendar. Sometimes you just need a day with no obligations. I decided it was going to be Self Care Saturday for Wendy. What a perfect opportunity to use my new spa products from doTerra. My spa products consist of a Detoxifying Mud Mask, Exfoliating Body Scrub, and Replenishing Body Butter . I included a link for each of these products so you can get more information for yourself.
In the shower I used the body scrub on my face, arms, and legs. The scrub is not harsh at all. It gently exfoliates the skin and makes it feel soft. After my shower, I used the mud mask on my face and neck. You don’t need a lot, only about a dime size amount. Leave the mask on for about 5 minutes. I felt a little tightening as the mask dried. After I washed it off, my face and neck felt very smooth. Lastly came the body butter. I used this on my chest, arms, and legs. It is extremely moisturizing. After I finished my spa routine, my skin felt rejuvenated and I felt refreshed (mentally). It didn’t take that long and was well worth it.
I had my morning coffee outside while I gazed at my wild flower garden and watched my birds feed. Each year my wild flower garden is a pleasant mystery. I never know what’s going to pop up. This year it came back two fold .
I just wanted to share my Self Care Saturday with you. Hopefully you can take a little time to do something for yourself. It’s so important.
