Now, more than ever, I’ve made self-care a top priority. When I’m feeling my best, I’m a better mom, business owner, wife and friend. One of my favorite ways to self-care is through skincare, so there are a few things that have become a part of my routine. Believe it or not, a lot of the things I do don’t take a lot of time – having three boys doesn’t leave a lot of free time – so even if I’m squeezing in a facial massage with my morning coffee or lathering on a face mask before bed, a few minutes is all the time I need to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. So, I wanted to share a few of my self-care essentials that I absolutely love and cannot live without.
