Crunchy leaves, first snowfalls, mittens and holiday lights. What’s not to love about this season? Maybe the stress. Despite being a season full of love and giving, the holidays are actually pretty stressful sometimes. Think about it. You have to buy presents for everyone and make sure they like them. You have to plan whose house you’ll be going to and which relatives you’ll see. There’ll be great convos but also some unwanted ones from THAT cousin (we all have one). There’ll be little arguments about being late to a party or making sure the food you cooked tasted good enough. Holidays are fun, but they also can be a little draining. That’s why we wanted to remind you of one of our favorite things to do during the holiday season. Ready?
Treat. Your. Self.
That’s it. It’s really that simple. The holiday season is about love, giving and happiness. What better place to start all of that than with yourself? Make sure you’re treating yourself right and taking time off to take care of yourself amongst all the hustle and bustle of holiday season. dome BEAUTY’s mantra is “Clean, Beautiful You”. Makeup and beauty aside, that starts with self care. Here’s a little guide to a self care routine that you should dedicate to yourself one of these days. It’ll keep you relaxed, fresh and happy. What more can you wish for?
Start off with a nice, warm bath. That’s right, not a shower. A bath. Throw in your favorite bath bomb maybe. Definitely add bubbles and some salts; it doesn’t matter how old you are. Baths are a good way to truly relax your mind and body while you can have some peace and quiet to yourself. We recommend throwing on a lighthearted tv show on a laptop or TV nearby and sipping on your favorite drink. It may sound silly, but something as simple as this will put your mind at ease and allow you to truly be with yourself by yourself. No outside influences needed.
After your bath, be sure to moisturize with a good body lotion or cream. This will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and have you feeling like you’re on top of the world. Throw on your favorite pajamas or a plush bathrobe and play your favorite music as you apply a face mask. Face masks are self care day essentials! They’ll have your skin feeling brand new, and who doesn’t want that?
Post face mask relaxation involves two of our favorite things. Food and movies. Hello delivery apps! Now is your time to shine. Pull up your favorite delivery service and order that food you’ve been craving for weeks. No judgement, no feeling bad. You deserve it. Once you’ve placed your order put on your favorite feel good movie and cuddle up on the couch with a cozy blanket. Now THAT is my idea of a perfect holiday season night.
End your self care day with a cup of hot cocoa and some stretches before you get into bed. Be sure to change your sheets before you sleep. Nothing beats fresh sheets after a bath and having the whole night for yourself. See? This doesn’t seem to hard, right?
