Over the years I have really sucked at taking care of my skin. My skin care routine sucked. I do the basics like wash my face and lotion up. Okay if I’m honest I’ve even skipped those things on occasion because I’ve been in a rush. For awhile I really didn’t care to take care of myself. Everything for me for awhile was just really on the backburner. At times I didn’t even think I was worthy of being first. But I am making changes to put myself in the forefront. I have made great progress. Now I am improving my skin. So this Self Love Monday is a praise to my skincare improvements.
I recently started giving myself facials at home. I found a facial scrub that costs $1.99 and bought it. It was the store brand product. For the past week I have been consistently using it to wash my face. I noticed that I really enjoyed the way my skin felt afterwards so I have been making sure I have time to do it . It is really relaxing. I will put the scrub on and then go on about my business for about 5-10 minutes before I wipe it off. Taking those few minutes to focus on me felt great. The results were amazing. I’ve also been drinking more water. I am also seeing the results of that. I am really enjoying these improvements. I was really impressed with myself for changing up my routine to make room to things like that. The more I make sure I am taken care of the more I can improve on taking better care of the other people in my life.
I am so proud of myself for the changes that I have made in my life and the changes I will continue to make. They are really beginning to pay off. I just hope to continue everything that I am doing. I slip at times but I always come back to what’s important which is me. I am working on making myself happier. It feels so good. Do you have a skin care routine.
