Self-Care Sunday

You all know how much I love to talk about self-care and self-love, because it is so important and so often forgotten. Self-care can be so simple, yet still have such a huge impact on how you feel each day. Suffering from post partum anxiety and depression has taught me that, and it has deeply been ingrained in me.

I went a really long time not taking care of myself, and always putting myself last. I know this is the case for so many moms, and it really doesn’t work so well. I have learned to work in little things throughout my day and routine to practice self-care that I need. It really is the little things that add up and make a huge impact on us.

One of my favorite self-care steps is exfoliating. It’s so simple, but it makes my skin feel and smell so good and it’s just the little something I need sometimes! I exfoliate 2-3 times a week using Ili Scrub Coffee Scrub. This stuff is made in Hawaii using organic local coffee, organic coconut oil, organic sugar, Hawaiian sea salt, essential oils, and vitamin e. They are pure, and natural which I LOVE, and they smell incredible! I wish I could have you all smell my bags right now, they are so so good. My personal favorite is the coconut cacao coffee scrub. It smells go amazing, and is so great for your skin. Cacao + coconut + exfoliating to me is just brilliant because they all have such great benefits.

Cacao protects against free radicals, is full of magnesium, omega fatty acids, and vitamin c to promote cell repair and blood flow. Coconut is high in protein, super moisturizing, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Exfoliation removes old skin cells, revealing the glowy, newer skin underneath. It also encouraged cell regeneration, causing your cells to turn over quicker.

I love exfoliating in the shower, and when I exfoliate my face, I like to use a mask after because I know my skin is going to absorb it so much better!

Cheers to self-care, the little things, and a Sunday well-spent.
