Why does self-care matter?

We stress the importance of skincare and looking after your body on the daily, however, it doesn't just stop there. Looking after your mental and physical health is just as important. Learning how to be happy in your skin, reduce stress, take time out for yourself and feel fit and healthy.

Here are our five top tips for taking better care of yourself.

  1. Your body is your temple. Start treating it like one.

Your physical appearance is the first thing that other people notice about you and is essential to confidence. We recommended taking some time out for yourself to have a little pamper! We love a hot bath! The perfect relaxant, muscle detox and mind clearing treat to take a little time out.

Top tip: Add a few drops of our Re:Fresh or De:Stress Oil to your bath for ultimate relaxation. Boosting with Gotu Kola, this skinfood superhero was traditionally used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to lift brain fogginess and help improve skin conditions.

2. Make sleep part of your self-care routine

Sleep has a huge effect on how you feel emotionally and physically. A good sleep can improve your concentration and productivity. Not only will you feel well rested but the impact it has on your health is major. Your body repairs itself whilst it sleeps and is known to reduce signs of stress and anxiety.

3.  Take care of yourself by taking care of your insides

Eating right has an impact on your health, well-being and feeling of vitality. The types of food you eat impact your mood. The better you eat, the better you feel. And the better you feel the more confidence you gain. Try introducing foods high in antioxidants. Nuts, fruits, beans etc are sure to keep you fuller for longer and have great health benefits.

4.  Go outside.

Literally, just go outside! Stop feeling tired and fatigue and boost your immune system. As little as 15 minutes as day outside can help clear your mind, boost mental health and improve blood pressure. Walking is a great activity to improve your physical health as well!

5. Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate.

You're probably tired of hearing about how important it is to stay hydrated but if anything, this should be at the top of the list! Not only for survival of course but your health! Water is known for helping cardiovascular health, helps muscles and joints work better and helps cleanse your body inside and out!
