It is a very foggy day here in Florida. The sun looks like it wants to peek in but the fog is in the way. Mother earth is talking and flowers are popping even though it is still our winter here.The flowers and birds tell me spring is on the way.
How’s life going for you? Staying safe and healthy I hope.
Today is self care Sunday. I don’t really know who started and declared it a day but I seem to always honor it and do something for my face,skin and body on Sundays. Not just the basics of skin care but do a bit more. How about you? Do you enjoy and partake of a little R&R too?
The first thing I like to do is plan a drink. It can be a pitcher of water with fruit or veggies infused.
It can be a pitcher of Champagne cocktails or as simple as a sipping a cup of coffee like cafe au lait I make at home or an aromatic cup of tea.
And today I have decided to do a fresh TEA bath treatment. Let me show you how I make and do it.
Fill green tea in a Muslim bag, bundle in cheesecloth or paper tea filter from a gourmet or tea store.
Run a warm 🛁 water bath water .
Place the tea bundle in the bath water.
If you have muscle aches or want a bit more to the bath add some Epsom salts to the bath water.
The tea helps with stress, body aches, swelling and A just a plain tired body.
Day or night the time is right!
Remember to always make time for you as you take care of your family too. But you have to practice self care and self love ❤️ to be able to continue to take care of others. Theres only one Beautiful YOU!
I’ve had my share of making up sports celebrities from NFL football players, sportscasters for FOX Sports, ABC, NBC,CBS and more. It is work with a view in the sky box some people envy and would be thrilled to be in my shoes!
My husband often says I am so ungrateful because between powdering their faces I read Allure magazine and European & Asian fashion magazines.
Now I find myself loving doing my thing, cooking and getting some yumminess ready for my husband to enjoy if he happens to watch the game. And taking care of ME and enjoying some self care time.
So with the pandemic I have more time and not on a plane ✈️ on the weekends for work. Sunday is now my day.
While the Super Bowl goes on I will cleanse, steam, detox,hydrate my skin, help my eye area, sip and play away! I might catch the half-time show. I’ll see how that goes.
If you’re not much into football?
Perhaps you’ll join in on the fun from your house and get all the essentials you need and want to use on your face and body. You may not have to look far. You might just have these kind of things at your house.
So here’s my plan.
I’ll cut up a fresh lemon 🍋 and 🍊 orange and make fresh fruit infused water but not from tap. This time I’ll prepare it with sparkling Perrier water for a fun twist.
After I wash my face I am going to steam my skin with my Mini Nano Facial Steamer. So refreshing, helps the pores and makes my skin look dewy too.
I’ll rinse my face with Intrinsics natural cotton cloths.
Afterwards I’ll pull up all my hair away from face and into a ponytail and apply a honey hair mask that is like an Asian sheet mask for your hair. They work wonders!
I’ll use some Vitabird Vitamin C Powder to brighten the skin.
Next I’m going to use a Korean Beauty AKA K Beauty Cucumber 🥒 Face sheet mask.
I’ll use my Agate Gemstone Facial Roller to help massage yes goodness and ingredients in.
Then I am going to use my Inna Organic eye mask and give a treat to my eye area.
Keeping our skin well moisturized is so important and I am so crazy about Honey Chai lotion by FarmHouse Fresh. I’ll even leave it on my feet sometimes and put them in a pair of clean white cotton socks overnight.
While these are working their magic I’ll apply my Tealiscious Green Tea lip treatment on my lips. Great to use a bit outside the lip area as well. Especially if you have sun damage and or smoke or vape. Gotta take good care of those lips. Nowadays especially since we are wearing face covers and 😷 face masks even more!
If you’d like and have the time … earlier in the day or later while the game is going on. There is nothing like a bath! Really! A shower simply won’t do! Light up a faux or real candle,set the mood with your fave music 🎶 and get in a warm not hot bath. Either a bath bomb like a invigorating Watermelon scented Bath bomb by Bath Nectar or a bunch of bath bubbles.
Get lost in the bath and let those cares go away from the day or week! It not only makes you feel good but smells good and cleans your skin beautifully!
I hope you have a fabulous Super Bowl Sunday if you live in the USA and that you take some time even if it’s just 10 minutes for you.
