How often do you make time for yourself? I am guessing most of you, including myself would respond with ‘not much’ or ‘never’. With our everyday lives getting so busy and people planning their days within minutes, it often seems like we never take time to relax and care for ourselves.
With the winter months rolling in so much of my ‘me time’ is spent on beauty and skin care. Whether is be a hair treatment, face mask or lotion session after a bath – those things make me feel pampered and spoiled, without breaking the bank. I also feel more refreshed and my skin and body thank me for it.
No matter the season, I am a lotion addict. I know I have talked about it before, but my skin dries out so easily and the feeling of dry hands will literally make my cringe with goosebumps. Not only do I lotion after every shower or bath, I carry hand lotion to work usually lather up again before before.
Whether you love lotion or not, taking care of your skin can allow you to feel indulged and boost the vitamins and proteins in your skin while locking in moisture. I’ve started using the Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt Collection since it has Active Naturals® and actually leaves my skin feeing moisturized without any residue. In addition to including the essential vitamins, lactose and proteins in the yogurt blend the Body Wash doesn’t dry my skin out like so many others I’ve tried, which is helpful during the Chicago winter. The new scents also don’t hurt – apricot and honey and vanilla and oat, yes please!
Have you guys tried the new line? I can’t reccomend it enough, especially for those with easily dried out skin. Make sure to take a little time for yourself soon – enjoy a long bath, put in a hair mask and lather on the Aveeno® Body Yogurt, I promise you will feel rejuvenated!
What do you guys do to relax? Reading in bed, listening to some music and having a cup of tea are my current favorites. Disconnecting from everything and really relaxing has become a priority for me and had really helped with my everyday anxiety.
