My Daily Self-Care Routine!!

I love promoting self-care and these products are affordable and make me feel great so I just have to share!

Self-care is so important in not only helping you relive stress and tension, but if you do something that makes you feel good/confident it helps boost self-esteem and your overall mood. Self-care can also improve health. I have had a hard time finding products that I enjoyed or didn’t make me breakout or just leave my skin feeling gross. Now, that I have found products that I actually enjoy using I have noticed a change in how much better I feel by just simply taking time to taking a few minutes to just do something for me.

So, in this post I just wanted to share what products I enjoy and how I have been able to incorporate these products in my daily routine.

Facial Scrub

I use a Neutrogena Deep Cleanser facial scrub while I am in the shower. I use a silicone facial cleansing scrubber to help  rub the cleanser in.

I found both of these items at Wal-Mart but they can be purchased online as well through Amazon and other websites.

Snarky Bar

I love to use a snarky bar in the shower because it exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling super clean!! I also use it on my feet which makes them feel super soft and helps with the calluses I start to get on my heels.

This is one on of my more pricey purchases, between $11-$16, but the good thing is they last a long time! Because snarky bars are so big I like to cut them into smaller portions,which also helps with them last longer.

Chunk

After I get done exfoliating I use a chunk bar of soap. I love using chunk bars because they last forever. I purchased it for $9, which seems like a lot of money for soap, but it has been almost two months and it is still going strong and doesn’t look like I use it almost every day!

Moisturizer

I always make sure to apply a facial moisturizer every night before bed. I have noticed that this has really helped make my skin look much better and not as dry, especially in the winter.

I rotate between brands but I prefer to use the Beyond Belief or the Neutrogena brands for facial moisturizer. They are under $10 and can be found at either Sally’s Beauty Supply, Amazon, or Wal- Mart.

Body Butter

I like to try to put lotion on every night before bed because I just love the way it makes my skin feel. I recently found a whipped body butter that I use daily.

I purchase this item for $22 and was impressed with the amount of product that was in the container. I also discovered that with this product a little goes a long way, which is awesome!

I purchase the snarky bars, chunks, and body butters online from Perfectly Posh. The link provided below will take you to Perfectly Posh’s website and from there you will be able to look at all their awesome products and the good thing is it is all under $25.

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog and will take some time out for yourself because self-care starts with you and is not selfish.

BioFreeze is a pain reliever that provides temporary pain relief for aches and pains of sore muscles and joints associated with backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains and can be used up to to four times a day.

I enjoy using Biofreeze on many of my clients, especially if they suffer from chronic pain. I prefer the 360° Spray, but there are also roll on and gel Biofreeze products to use.

For any current/future massage therapist that are reading my post you can request product or event samples. They even customize the samples with the name of your business and phone number! I also like to take samples with me to events to hand out to people with my business card. I even keep samples in the massage office to give to clients.

For more information on Biofreeze or for any LMT’s that would like to order samples you may visit the link below.

Earn money for your groceries!

I love saving money whenever I can! I recently found an app called Ibotta that allows you to save certain rebates on groceries to redeem for money later! Since I grocery shop a lot I figured I would give this app a try and I have not been disappointed.

I have earned almost $50 doing this! The first money rebate I got back was a $25 gift card.

How to get the app:

  • Go to Google Play Store
  • Download Ibotta App
  • Log in through FB or e-mail

How it works:

  • You pick rebates from certain stores such as Wal Mart, Hy Vee, Dollar Tree, etc.
  • Whenever you redeem those rebates you just take a picture of your receipt and scan the item’s bar codes.
  • The rebate is usually credited to your account within one business day.
  • Whenever you are ready to cash out you pick how you would like to receive your rebate earnings. You can choose from gift cards to different stores or other options.

That’s it!! How easy is that!!

You should be able to enter the referral code below on your app in the referral code section to earn a sign on bonus!

Rice Heating Pads DIY

Just finished up my DIY project of the day! I made up some rice heating pads to sell at my upcoming vendor events! It was easy, inexpensive, and didn’t take a lot of time.

You can microwave rice heating pads for 1 – 2 minutes, they get hot extremely fast so be sure to touch the rice heating pad before setting it on your body.

All you need is…

Fabric ( I used a scrub top.)

Rice

Sewing machine

Essential oil (optional)

 

Then…

Prep the fabric by measuring out how long you want it, cut it then sew it.

Leave an opening at the top to pour the rice in. You would add the essential oil to the rice and stir before pouring the rice inside.

Once you are done pouring the rice in the fabric sew the top off.

 

That’s it!! How easy was that! Like I said super fast and easy.
