Make yourself a priority every once and a while.. It’s not selfish, its necessary.
Homemade Calming Mask- A Mommy-do fav
A calming and hydrating mask is easy to do and perfect for the summer heat. Cucumber is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits. It will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated while greek yogurt is perfect for a gentle exfoliation. The combination of the two will leave you feeling refreshed in a quick 10 minutes. Add honey for an extra umph in your moisture levels.
Wash your face and leave your skin damp. Rub a generous amount of the yogurt mask onto your face and neck and allow the mask to dry completely (about 10 minutes). To remove, rinse skin with a warm water and gently buff with a soft cloth. Follow treatment with your moisturizer of choice.
Slice cucumbers and place them on your eyes if you choose to do so. Lay down, relax and enjoy your well deserved “me-time” mommy!
“I am taking care of myself today!”
Do those words sound familiar? I was admittedly the first time mom who would tell myself this message repeatedly, yet I would never follow through. When it got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t recognize myself anymore both inside and out, I decided that I needed to be done with the excuses. I didn’t want to glance in the mirror and see a worn down, tired, and unhealthy version of myself.
