There’s nothing more exciting than making time for yourself throughout the day. One of the things I like to do is to set aside 15-20 minutes daily for myself.

Regardless of how the day starts or how it will end, knowing that I’ve made time for me makes it easier to focus on others as well.

Why?

Taking time for yourself can be a blessing when you’re feeling overwhelmed. It’s been my secret to finding happiness in everyday things.

Why Invest In Self Care

When you make time daily for yourself, you’re investing in your sanity. You won’t be able to properly care for others if you’re not feeling your best.

Take it from a former overworked mama. It’s not a pretty sight when you continue to place your needs at the bottom of your To-Do list.

Investing in self care means making yourself a priority. It’s not selfish to do this — it’s necessary.

By placing your needs before someone else’s, you’re giving yourself the time you deserve.

You know the saying, “you can’t fill from an empty cup”? Well, it’s true.

You deserve the same (if not more) attention than you give others. Start making time for yourself.

With time, you’ll notice a change in your everyday life. You’ll even feel refreshed and excited to take on the day.

Inexpensive Self Care Ideas For Skincare

Removing the dirt from the day is as simple as a bedtime shower. Your skin craves water — it actually needs it more than anything else.

Replenishing your skin and cleansing it daily — even two to three times a day — can be a blessing to your skincare routine. This is important for your face as well.

If you’re looking for ways to help yourself or a friend improve their self care routine, then you might want to invest in some products.

My inexpensive self care ideas for a bedtime skincare routine includes the following items:

  • Hemp oil soap;
  • Micellar cleansing water
  • Lavender oil; and
  • Reusable cotton round pads.

My bedtime skincare routine starts with washing my face with hemp oil soap. Then, I use a round cotton pad to apply the micellar cleansing water.

With two cotton pads, I safely remove any makeup residue from my forehead line. I use the second pad throughout my face.

Then, I take a clean cotton pad and dampen it with water. Using one to two drops of lavender oil, I wipe down my face.

While I brush my teeth, I let my face airy dry. It’s an easy step that helps it sit on my face.

Most nights I apply this bedtime exfoliant. It’s one that can be left on overnight.

Self Care Gifts For Family And Friends

Baskets are a great way to give someone (or a family) a treat for them to enjoy. It’s one of my go-to holiday gift ideas.

Gifting a friend or family with time for themselves is a great way to remind them of how much they mean to you. I do this for my husband and myself.

The holidays can be stressful, and self care activities are always in style. With everything going on, you’ll need moments to yourself.

If you’re looking for ways to gift someone with a self care kit they can enjoy, then give the following 7 items a look:

A handy water bottle to stay hydrated during the day.

An exfoliating brush to help care for your skin.

A facial cleanser for sensitive skin to freshen up your face.

A spa set to use during the week.

A self care travel kit to take with them.

A set of budgeting envelopes for those who like heading to the salons.

A microfleece towel for wash/deep conditioning days.
