Self Help: Charcoal and Lemon Face Mask
It’s been one hell of a start to the New Year 2019, got sick with strep throat, was out of work for a week missing out on some coins. But God knows why he allowed me to be home to rest, heal, and unwind from the stressful work environment.
I took one day that I was feeling more like myself to pamper myself. Have a glass of wine, binge watch my favorite shows (NO LAHH or REALITY TV), and to do some self reflecting. I took that opportunity to focus on a guideline to creating better content and focus on getting back in school. I put my phone on silent placed it in the bedroom on the charger and went into a separate space in my apartment, either in my living room or second bedroom to really feel like i’m getting away.
For me being in my early 30’s skin care is a must, especially when you are aging like fine wine.
Taking the time to self indulge while trying to take care of my skin better, taking this time to focus on meditating and having quiet time to mysel is exactly what I have been needing for a while.
Quality time with just me, myself, and my dog Giovanni and showering myself with a little TLC.
Today I challenge all my fabulous people to do that same take one day a week to pamper yourself and have some quiet time away from the kids, the husband or wife, away from work, just away from reality for a while. Mediate and get deep in thought you never know where you mind may take you and how refreshed you’ll feel.
I don’t get weekends off often so I’m taking full advantage of this month being off on the weekends so I can feel like a normal working class citizen.
I made my own sangria (recipes can be found on Pinterest) and I used my Biore Self Heating Mask along with two lemon wedges to give my skin that extra glow.
