I would like to take more care of myself. Any tips ?
Well … That’s a hard one, as taking more care of myself was my main New year resolution. I think that taking care of ourselves should be our top priority as we only have one body and soul and we’re meant to spend our whole life in it. You sometimes have to be selfish and to worry about yourself first. I went through depression last year and taking care of myself changed everything to me.
Allow yourself 30 min to 1:00 a day to take care of yourself. Take a bath, buy some new makeup and other beauty products : I love to smell yummy so I like changing my routine and try loads of new products.
Learn how to love yourself but if something in your appearance makes you uncomfortable work your best to change it.
Take care of your hair by washing it 2 or 3 times a week top, use a heat protector if you blow dry your hair but try to dry your hair naturally as much as you can. Always use conditionner, use castor oil on your roots and coconut oil on your length twice a week.
Never go to bed with some make up on. If you have pimples use a face wash or moisturizer containing Benzoy peroxyde because this does wonders : it erases dark marks from previous pimples, cleans the skin and prevents new pimples. Do face masks 2-3 times a week. I also use a facial cleansing brush with my regular face wash once a day.
Moisturize, Moisturize and Moisturize ! I have oily skin so I used to think that my skin didn’t need moisturizer … I started using some because the Benzoy peroxyde dried out my skin a lot. And my skin has never looked that good !
I exfoliate my skin everyday too with my regular shower gel and a bath lily (is that how you english people call that ! 😅 ?!) and once or twice a week with some brown sugar scrub. Love the one from Sephora by the way ! 😍😍😍 And of course … I moisturize my body everyday.
Something else that works wonders is applying, with an old mascara comb, castor oil on your eyelashes and eyebrows if you want them to grow way faster. I use castor oil to make my nails grow faster too.
Finally never underestimate eating healty. No need to do a drastic diet to lose a bit of weight if you need to, just eat healthy in good proportions, workout a bit and you’ll feel so much better ! I suffered from panik attacks. The people who went through that too know how bad you feel… I felt like I was going to faint every time … So I started eating after every single panik attack and I could have 3, 4, 5, 6 panik attacks a day … I gained 20 lbs because of my anxiety and the simple fact of eating better changed my life. Buying new clothes never felt so good :)
Hope this helps a bit 😘😘
