Self care isn't selfish

For over two thousand years February has been declared the month of love.  When we think of love, we often think of partners, family and friends …but there is one person in your life who deserves your love the most… and that person is you ♥️

Self love, self acceptance and self-care are essential to mental health and wellbeing. Taking time to take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually may seem like a daunting task but the positives effects it will have may restore balance and reduce stress in other areas.

Are you getting enough sleep? Do you get your body moving? Are you eating a balanced diet? Simple tweaks to routine can give dramatic effects, go to bed an hour earlier, take a 30 minute walk everyday, add a piece of fruit into your diet as a snack. Write down your goals and see what you can achieve over the course of a day, building up to a week, a month and eventually it will become routine.

Life can be extremely busy, but are you making time for your friends and family? Catching up for a coffee and chat can boost your energy (and not just form the caffeine).

Are you taking the time to switch off from work, or stressful situations? Have you read a book or magazine that inspires you lately? Make sure to include activities in your day that make you feel happy.

If you know that you are struggling to keep up with life and feel like you are burning out, take the time to write a self care plan to remind yourself to focus on yourself.

Work with your skintone and the cosmetic effect that you want to achieve. We are all lucky that we have unique faces.. play up the features you love and play down those you don't.
