**Advertisement Feature**

If you ever find yourself stuck at home with nothing to do, you can make the time more productive by reconnecting with your body. Self-care is a necessary aspect of living and crucial to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. Stress is an inevitable part of life, and having a moment to take care of yourself regularly is one of the best ways to cope. 

Plan Early 

Having a set time and date for self-care makes the whole experience feel like a treat that it is. Consider planning early, and make it a regular thing. Having something to look forward to is exciting and will want to make you do well at work or school. 

Plan out the beauty products, cosmetics, and other items you want to use for your regular ritual. If you have a packed schedule, you may want to order products online to save effort, time, and sometimes money. You can have the items delivered at your doorstep, and you don’t even have to brave the stores on your day off, so it’s more convenient this way. 

Have a Day for Organic DIY Skin-Care Products 

According to naturalists, products made from organic ingredients are better for the human body. Fortunately, there are plenty of easy do-it-yourself recipes that you can try at home. Ingredients for some recipes may already be in your kitchen. Some essentials you can make and use are lip scrubs, natural deodorants, hair masks, and makeup remover, you could even try something such as a lash serum so that every part of your body and face is receiving some TLC. 

Before delving into this, identify ingredients you are allergic to, and seek alternatives or recipes so you won’t break out or get rashes. Additionally, do a swatch test first if you’re not sure about allergies. 

If you think you’ve made an effective product, you can even try selling organic skin-care items online. 

Have a Long, Relaxing Bath 

Remember those great bath salts and bombs you’ve splurged on at one time and are stashed in a cabinet somewhere? It’s time to treat yourself with those. If you only found time to pamper yourself, soaking in a relaxing bath is a great way to unwind. As you take your time basking in the scents of your bath products, feel free to light a candle to make the mood more calming.  

You can add in essential hands if you have one on hand. Lavender and chamomile are great picks. Turn it into a spa day by drinking tea on the side (or wine or any liquor of choice). Add a relaxing playlist while you’re at it. 

Exfoliate and Put on All the Masks 

Stress elicits a particular chemical response in the body that will cause your body to break out in acne, make it oily, and cause other skin problems. While the best thing you can do for the current pimples is a spot treatment, you can treat your skin by exfoliating it to get rid of dead skin from the surface. 

A skin treatment should follow to take care of any skin issues. Pay attention to problem areas where the skin is dry, like the cuticles and lips. If there aren’t any, you should always moisturize after to hydrate the skin. A good face mask is also a great way to enhance moisturization. If you have one for your hair, feet, and hands, you can do those too. 

Try a Face Massager 

A full body massage sounds heavenly, but you need an appointment for that on most days. You can get body massagers if you want, but if you want to try something new, get a face massager. It works on the face by soothing out tired facial muscles from smiling in front of customers all day or from furrowing your brows in concentration. The face massager should be used in tandem with serums or oils to make it roll smoother. 

No Perfect Formula 

There is no one-size-fits-all formula for caring for yourself. The best way to discover the perfect self-care routine is to listen to your body and to learn what it needs. Find out what things bring you joy and make you feel good. Practicing mindfulness and self-care doesn’t have to be shoved on one specific day. 

You can make the time a few minutes a day. It doesn’t mean you have to do it alone too. Self-care can mean having a conversation with a friend or watching silly movies to make you laugh out loud. It can also be an extra hour of sleep or walking in nature for a few minutes to feel refreshed.
