What Self-Care REALLY Means

What Self-Care REALLY Means

Do you find yourself rushing as wash your hands, or brushing your teeth in a mindless trance, or drying your hair as quickly as you can, and barely notice the face looking back at you as you stand in front of the mirror?

Sadly, the weeks and months and years go by so quickly that you might not remember the last time you stopped and REALLY looked into the eyes of the face staring back at you.

When we do look at ourselves, it's often in a critical manner focusing in on every fine line, every wrinkle, and perceived imperfection. Eyes too wide, nose too big, lips too thin, and so on and so forth. 

As you know, I'm a strong advocate for practicing good skincare and while it's been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, I think the thing that drives me the most is I know that when I look and feel my best, I'm able to be a better version of me. For me, that means a better mother, better wife, better daughter, better friend and better colleague. I no longer buy into outdated thinking that self-care is selfish. 

I also know that when I work my skincare magic on the clients I serve, they leave feeling a little bit better and seem a little bit lighter. 

So when I am sharing my knowledge of esthetics and skincare with you, my hope is that it will inspire you to take better care of YOU. That you'll look in the mirror and see the face looking back at you - and look her in the eyes and decide - she is worthy of the best of self-care.  

She deserves to feel more connected to herself. She deserves all the things that ignite her soul on fire! And, my hope is that you come to the realization that all she needs is right there looking back at her.

Instead of looking outside ourselves for what we need, that we learn we have it within ourselves to be the best version of who we want to be.

When we understand this, it shines a whole new light on the meaning of self-care.
