Show Yourself Some Love with the Easiest Self-Care Routine Ever

Valentine’s Day puts a lot of emphasis on others. But how do you show yourself some affection? While there’s nothing wrong with a thoughtful gesture for your nearest and dearest, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to give yourself some well-deserved affection. Ready to show yourself some love?

Light It Up

First, instantly lift your spirit by adding invigorating fragrance to your space. Indulge in a scent that energizes and boosts your mood, so you feel nothing short of fabulous. Whether you’re into candles or incense, there’s no wrong way of doing it.

For incense, we recommend UMA Pure Calm Wellness Incense or UMA Pure Rest Wellness Incense.

For candles, we recommend Quintessence Paris Tubéreuse or Nomad Noe Dreamer in London.


Next, show your face and hair some TLC. Nothing feels as luxurious and indulgent as a rich mask. Optimize your time and transform both your skin and hair in a matter of minutes.

For the face, we recommend Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask, Embryolisse Hydra Mask or Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask.

For the hair, we recommend Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask or Sisley Paris Regenerating Hair Care Mask.

Drink Up

We love a good glass of vino as much as the next person, but may we suggest swapping out the alcohol for a feel-good drink instead? Opt for something packed with powerful nutrients that will enhance you from the inside out.

We recommend Moon Juice Magnesi-om or Golde Matcha Tumeric Latte Blend.

Dive In

Nothing is more calming and uplifting than some me time in the bathtub, so flood yourself with some good energy (literally). While you let your masks absorb and sip on your drink of choice, submerge yourself in your favorite bath salt. Soothe your skin, calm your nerves, and melt away the tension with restorative bath salts.

We recommend Lord Jones Bath Salts or The Sacred Ritual Bath Salt Release.

Roll It Out

After rinsing off and moisturizing, use an effective facial roller to replicate a professional face massage at home. De-puff and tighten the skin while draining unwanted toxins. Go ahead, put your best face forward.

We recommend ReFa Carat Face or The Sacred Ritual Clear Quartz Facial Roller.

Pucker Up

Finish with your favorite shade of red. Nothing feels sexier than a flattering red lip. No matter what you have planned for the rest of the day, it’ll leave you feeling powerful and ready to conquer the world.

We recommend Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick Valentine’s Day Set, TOM FORD Beauty Lip Color Matte, or Givenchy Le Rouge.
