This year was unlike any other. Sure, the holiday bustle was different, but your hustle was just as stressful. Now it’s time to welcome a new year with a new focus—you.
We get it, we are all crazy busy with stressful jobs, family obligations and more. Self-care always falls to the bottom of the list, but it is the one thing that can help you feel refreshed and ready—so you can be available for everyone and everything in your life. Here are a few tips, tricks and product picks from Nordstrom to maximize your me-time and get started on some self-care.
Get to sleep. We all know that sleep can have a huge effect on how we feel physically and emotionally, but there is always more to do and stress stopping us from getting the rest we really crave. Before bed, turn off your devices and take a few minutes to massage your muscles with a hydrating, multi-vitamin cream like The Body Lotion by Nécessaire. Not only will it allow your mind to start to transition to sleep, but it will also hydrate your skin all night long—it’s a win-win.
Supplement your diet. What we eat plays a huge role in how we feel each day. Some of the most amazing self-care foods include fish, blueberries, nuts and green leafy veggies. Plus, you may also want to add a supplement to your daily routine. Choose one that helps with energy, mood and stress management, like SuperYou by Mood Juice. Even small dietary changes can make a big impact.
Make a hair appointment. No, we don’t mean at the salon. Make this appointment with you. It can be challenging to find time for yourself, but you would never miss a hair appointment. Block off time in your planner to do something special for you and your locks. Try a new beauty treatment, like Dominican Forbidden Hair Mask by Bomba Curls—it stays on for 20 minutes, so you have no excuse but to sit and relax while you wait, plus your hair will be hydrated and shiny afterwards!
Round out your routine. Add a little something extra to your beauty routine to really bring out your eyes. Simply applying a serum only takes a few seconds but the results last much longer. Choose a product that helps to protect the delicate skin around your eyes, like EPARA’s Eye Serum. It is a clinically-proven serum that helps reduce bags and puffiness while increasing firmness. Then you can feel great Zooming into every video call with bright, beautiful eyes.
Add some shimmer. It may sound silly, but we all feel a little lighter and whole lot more fabulous when we are wearing a new makeup. Whether it’s a bold lip color or shimmering shadow, like the Breakfast in Bed Palette by Beauty Bakerie, these beauty moments are a small burst of self-care that you can achieve even with the busiest schedule.
