Across all genders, self-care is important! Taking care of your skin, hair, and body are the beginning steps to self-care. Incorporating a few simple steps into your morning and nighttime routines will make a huge difference in how you look and feel! These tips will help you or the man in your life freshen up and begin each day with a little self-love!
Tip #1 Start With Your Hair Care!
Self-care does not have to be overly complicated. If you spend a little more time choosing the right products that you already use every day, it will simplify your get-ready routine. Listening to your hair and scalp needs will guide you in the right direction of listening to your body’s needs in general!
Typically, less is more when it comes to applying products! Start by finding the proper shampoo and conditioner. Consider your scalp and hair needs and carefully choose your products based on those needs. Remember, your hair and scalp needs may differ! Pick a shampoo for your scalp and a conditioner based on your hair. You can read more about finding what is right for you by visiting the “How to Pick the Right Shampoo and Conditioner” blog post or begin browsing the shampoo and conditioner section on our website!
Tip #2 Set Some Self-care Time for Yourself
Finding some time to take care of yourself can seem impossible at times. However, if you plan ahead and commit to taking the time, it will be rewarding! Set a reasonable goal for yourself and what you know you will be able to achieve.
During this designated time, do something to nurture your mind and/or body. This could be meditating for 5 minutes or taking some time to write a list of to-dos to get yourself organized for the day. In the morning you will want to do something that will help you set up and refresh for the day. For example, every morning you could take the time to wash your face and nourish your beard with the Pura D’or Beard Oil to feel refreshed! If it is midday, maybe you need a break and will want to stretch for the time. If you take the time at night, do something that will help ease your mind before bed. Ultimately, use this dedicated time to take care of yourself and do anything that brings you joy!
Tip #3 Exercise, Sleep, and Communication!
Although it can be a challenge to listen to our bodies and what they need, it is important to do so! If you are exhausted, let your body rest! Getting enough sleep is vital for your health. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep a night!
Another way to set your body up for success is to exercise! Exercise is beneficial to both mental and physical health. Even if you go on a 5-10 minute walk a day, you will begin to feel a major difference in how you feel overall. A little morning or afternoon stretch is also a great way to get your body moving and loosen up! Commit to exercising at any level of fitness that works for you and your body!
Lastly, surround yourself with positive people and a support system. A great way to take care of yourself is to talk to those around you and express your needs. Communication is key to a healthy mind and relationship. Don’t be afraid to talk about how you feel and get support and help when you need it! You can also always get things off your chest by writing them down as well. Either way, it will feel great to let any burdens out.
Overall, self-care can be as simple as taking care of your nails or finding the right products, but what is most important is that you are listening to your mind and body and nurturing their needs! Browse our website to begin giving your body the spa treatment it needs!
