Self-Care from your Pantry 

Self Care from your Pantry 600X400 - Self-Care from your Pantry

 

Wow. What a few weeks! We know it can feel hard to find time for yourself when you’re stuck at home – especially between work and taking care of the kids. But take a deep breath and walk away from the TV, because it’s time to focus on yours truly and practice some self care-antine (see what we did there?). 

Here are some ideas on how to practice self-care from home:

 

Bath Time 600X400 - Self-Care from your Pantry

 

Take a Bath: 

Unplug from the world and hop in a nice warm bath (bubbles optional). 

No need to fight off the toilet paper hoarders at the store, here are some DIY bath soak recipes for you to try!

  1. Epsom Salt: famous for its ability to relax and soothe stiff joints
  2. Green Tea: dive into a bath of antioxidants by throwing ten green tea bags into a warm bath
  3. Oatmeal: blend some oatmeal into a smooth powder and throw it in the tub for a moisturizing bath (we know those over-sanitized hands could use it)

Give yourself an at home facial: 

Who needs a spa? Give yourself a much needed facial at home in just a few simple steps. 

  1. Start off by cleaning your skin with warm water and a cleanser.
  2. Gently exfoliate with a scrub. Don’t have one? Try using honey and brown sugar or baking soda.
  3. Steam your face over a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes (feel free to add some essential oils).
  4. Apply a mask. Don’t have one left from your Christmas stocking? Try combining one egg yolk, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon of olive oil with half a cup of oatmeal.
