The ultimate self-care guide for Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is a couple of days away and is often associated with grand romantic gestures. We tend to overlook the most important relationship of all: the one we have with ourselves. Let’s shake things up a bit this year and prioritise self-love with thoughtful gifts that promote wellbeing. This blog is your guide to self-care and wellbeing.

1. Skincare Essentials

Make time for yourself (this should be your top priority)! If you don’t have one already, develop a skincare routine (morning and evening) to help your skin look and feel its best. A great routine can help prevent acne outbreaks, address dryness, an uneven skin tone, and premature wrinkles and it can also help protect your skin from environmental pollutants.


2. Relaxation 

Explore ways to de-stress and re-centre. Recharge your mind and body with wellness products and activities that will help you unwind and relax. Book yourself a professional body massage or facial treatment. If you’re pressed with time or looking for a budget-friendly option, at-home activities work just as well. Draw yourself a warm bath with bath oils and salts to unwind after a long day. Add a face mask, grab a book, and a glass of red to make it even more special.

3. A little indulgence

Choose items that bring joy to you or your loved ones. Sometimes it can be as simple as a box of decadent chocolate truffles, your favourite aromatic herbal tea or speciality coffee.

4. Self-Reflection

Keep a gratitude journal and jot down your inner thoughts and feelings to nurture your inner self. It’s a self-reflection aid that helps you appreciate the little joys in life. Adult colouring books also offer a therapeutic outlet for self-expression – helping you to reconnect with yourself and explore your creative side.

Valentine’s Day is about love and while we tend to splurge on our partners, family, and close friends, we forget about ourselves – but remember that it’s just as important to make time for ourselves.
