Pressing Pause and Relishing in the Moment

For me, self-care is being in the comfort of my sanctuary and pampering myself from head to toe. This is a simple luxury that reminds me that I need to press pause on the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relish in the moment. It is also a simple luxury that makes me feel beautiful.

Life can feel like a “one woman circus” for many women at times since it is a constant juggling act of balancing the demands of everyday life. With the demands of everyday life, it is easy to neglect other aspects of our lives outside of the family, work, and home, including practicing self-care. This is mostly due to the fact that some feel obligated to take care of everything and everyone else while putting our own needs on the back burner. While others may view self-care as an act of selfishness, self-care is vital for our health and state of mind. It helps us become a better version of ourselves by helping us find balance, re-ignite a zest for life, de-stress, and gives us a sense of empowerment.

For me, self-care is being in the comfort of my sanctuary and pampering myself from head to toe. This is a simple luxury that reminds me that I need to press pause on the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relish in the moment. It is also a simple luxury that makes me feel beautiful.

Feeling beautiful gives me unwavering confidence that makes me feel like that I can take on the world. That is why taking care of my skin is important since it helps me feel confident about my age as well as my appearance. I don’t have any qualms about my age, but I do want to age gracefully since Father Time is slowly, silently, and steadily ticking away. I strive on taking care of my skin by wearing sunscreen, using quality skincare, and limiting my usage of makeup since it can be taxing on the skin.

Using a gentle body cleanser in the shower is another way that I take care of my skin! 3 in 4 dermatologists say that women often damage their skin in the shower, thinking they are caring for it. When it comes to cleansing, all skin deserves gentleness. This is why 88% of dermatologists advise women to use a gentle cleanser when showering. Only Dove Body Wash is made with 100% gentle cleansers, is sulfate-free and is the #1 dermatologist recommended body wash.

I nourish my skin in the shower with Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash. I love that it gently cleanses the skin without stripping natural oils or damaging it in the process. Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash also lathers beautifully, ensuring that I only need to use a small amount for it to last longer!

It works vigorously at nourishing the skin, making it feel soft and smooth.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash is an affordable luxury enables me to turn an ordinary bath or shower to a spa-like experience. It can be purchased at food, drug, mass, value, club and online retailers nationwide.

What is one simple way you practice self-care?
