Clear and Glowing Skin With Essential Oils

Raise your hand if you are a busy woman? Self-care is always the first one on the list that we take for granted or we fail to do. Moms can attest to that. We get so busy taking care of our household, we sometimes forget that the best way to pour love on others is to first pour love on ourselves. There is a truth in this famous quote, "You can not pour from an empty cup".

I get it though mama. We hold the fort. We make sure everyone is well-fed, safe, nurtured, and loved. We are our children's' chauffeurs, nurse, personal shopper, and cheerleader. There are a lot of behind-the-scenes that our husbands may not know such as planning and coordinating the flow of our household. I once told my husband that mind is like a computer, with many tabs or windows opened throughout the day.

Honestly, I sometimes go to bed without even washing my face! I am just tired. I do not have time to pamper myself. However, it is very important to practice self-care.

Remember, we can NOT pour on an empty cup.

There are many ways we can practice self-care:

1. Drink plenty of water.

2. Yes, you have time to read a book. Just sit down and immerse yourself in a good book. I am reading Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. And purchase two books to read after,  Uninvited by Lisa TerKuerst and Change Your Brain Change Your Life by Dr. Daniel Amen.

3. Eat healthily. This will take extra effort on our part since it needs meal prepping. Make sure that we have healthy snacks on hand.

4. Exercise and be active. That's it, I said the bad word! I don't like it either but it is very essential. Aside from the benefit of losing weight, regular exercise releases good chemicals that improve our brain sensitivity and mood. Need more convincing? READ HERE.

5. Get plenty of rest. This is a challenging one especially when we have babies at home and even small children. But do your best to get a minimum of 7 hrs of sleep. Rest when you can. Nap is divine.

6. Have a skincare regime. According to Northwestern Medicine, regular skin care is necessary as it is not only a surface-level concern.  Buying skin care products can be overwhelming due to the wide array of choices in our beauty aisle. Start with a good cleanser, moisturizer, and a sunblock. Stay as close to natural products as much as possible,
