The Art of Embracing Femininity in Self-Care

  • Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:12

Self-care is important so you can be the best version of yourself every day. You work at your best when you are well rested and your body and mind are refreshed. Self-care is not selfish; it is the crucial time for you to spend on taking care of yourself.

We live in a world where we are always busy, always doing something, always taking care of everyone else before ourselves, and doing our best to balance work, life, home, and stress. Women are often very in tune with their emotions and feelings so they tend to respond best to self-care activities that ease intense emotions during stressful times.

Some women use their makeup routine or the time it takes to do their nails as self-care time. Some women soak in the bathtub for a few minutes with the company of scented candles and soft music. Others may read a book or go for a run.

All women are unique individuals and self-care is an individual process to each woman. If you find investing in your appearance and focusing on yourself relaxing, take a look at these self-care ideas that embrace femininity.

Look within

When you are doing your makeup, nails, or moisturizing your skin, you are able to focus on yourself and your appearance instead of what is bringing you down. These few moments may be the only ‘you time’ that you have to yourself in a day and many women capitalize on that alone time. These quiet moments are a great opportunity to reflect and explore your thoughts and feelings within.

Invest in the future you

You can be creative and experiment with different colors and shades while you figure out what looks best on you. You are not doing this for anyone except yourself. You want to look your best for yourself. When you invest in your appearance, you are investing in the future you.

Be spontaneous

When it comes to makeup, many women are highly cautious and particular about their appearance when it comes to new looks. Sometimes you have to play into spontaneity and rock out a bold color that you love.

It is not about perfection. It is about doing what you want to do for yourself. One of the best outcomes of encouraging spontaneity through makeup and beauty routines is that you may find a look that you love.

Breathe in

Aromatherapy can be incredibly useful during self-care. You can use scented candles, oils, bath salts, scrubs, blends, and masks for aromatherapy during your morning routines, or while winding down for the night, or while soaking in the bathtub.

Lavender is one of the most common scents used to ease stress and allow your mind to heal. Other scents are citrus, eucalyptus, mint, and chamomile. These scents encourage relaxation and tranquility.
