2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Tell us your solo relaxation tips!

2022 Self-Care Check-In Challenge2022 Self-Care Check-In Challenge

 

Welcome to 2022, Beauty Insider Community! At this point, the importance of โ€œself-careโ€ is talked about so often that it sometimes almost feels like a chore. Which totally defeats the purpose, right? Self-care is important, but itโ€™s meant to be restorative and enjoyable. ๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ Thatโ€™s why weโ€™re reviving our Self-Care Check-in Challenge, this time with weekly inspiration for themed rituals and beauty resolutions to incorporate into your own self-care routines.

 

Check back weekly and let us know in the replies: How are you committing to the self-care theme of the week? Share your tips and tricks, or just get motivated by others (you can even check out @haleyvvvv's 2022 Beauty Resolutions/Goals  thread for more inspirational beauty resolutions to kick-start your new year)! And if a certain theme doesnโ€™t speak to your personal self-care needs, skip it! But donโ€™t forget to stop by to cheer on your fellow BIC-ers. ๐Ÿ“ฃ

 

  • Week 1 (1/5 โ€“ 1/11) โ€“ Getting active (โ€ฆand if contouring is your cardio, thatโ€™s cool too!) ๐Ÿ…
  • Week 2 (1/12 โ€“ 1/18) โ€“ Taking care of your hair ๐Ÿ’‡โ€
  • Week 3 (1/19 โ€“ 1/25) โ€“ Improving your sleep routine ๐Ÿ˜ด
  • Week 4 (1/26 โ€“ 2/1) โ€“ Trying a new wellness trend (supplements, CBD, gua sha, oh my!) ๐Ÿ”ฎ
  • Week 5 (2/2 โ€“ 2/8) โ€“ Staying organized and productive ๐Ÿ“š
  • Week 6 (2/9 โ€“ 2/15) โ€“ Setting a skincare goal for 2022 ๐Ÿ˜š
  • Week 7 (2/16 โ€“ 2/22) โ€“ Meditating and mindset ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€
  • Week 8 (2/23 โ€“ 3/1) โ€“ Relaxing solo (how do you like to unwind when you get a minute to yourself?) ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿปโ€

@ashleeeyc  Such great products! I love them! 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

My hair and scalp have been very dry and flakey this winter! Iโ€™ve really been loving my amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask for giving my hair an extra boost! I also have been using the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL which I got in Fabfitfun but Iโ€™m not really sure how I feel about it 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

@Kim888  That amika hair mask is so good!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

@Kim888 That amika mask is truly one of my most repurchased products on this site.

This week i'm doing โœจhair masksโœจand using a new shampoo that smells ๐Ÿ˜ฉ ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿผ sooooo good. doing wonders for my mane! < 3

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

Week 2- spent my money on some Olaplex no. 3-4&5 for my multi texture fine hair, my hair has less flyaways less mess and more curl and volume, my hair has been given a second life and I plan to make this life the best one.

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

@Bloodlovetears  I agree. I was highlighting my hair for years and I finally went back to my natural colour and my hair feels so good!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

Week 2 - Taking Care of Your Hair - I started off today with freshly blow dried hair. I don't blow dry my hair very ofter anymore because of the time it takes and I want to minimize damage. Tomorrow (Day 2) I plan of curling it with a wand and adding some Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo 5.5 oz/ 184 mL . On Day 3 I will end up wearing in a high pony tail with some more dry shampoo if needed. Day 4 I will wear in a bun. On wash day I will put in some scalp oil JVN Complete Pre-Wash Scalp & Hair Treatment Oil 1.7 oz/ 50 mL and let air dry naturally (curly). I will wear my hair up for the remainder of the week and finish up with a mask. I am definitely due for a cut. I don't know what kind of cut to get. I always go for something similar to the style. My hair is cut one length at the perimeter and then some layers through out. I want to try out curtain bangs  but dont know if I can pull it off or if i will work with the cut I already have

@Mellmars1185  Canโ€™t wait to see what you end up doing!!! I always completely change my look after a few years!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

The living proof dry shampoo is a fave of mine as well @Mellmars1185 !

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Share how you're committing to hair care this season!

Week one: got my running back up to 7 miles, and this week I got a pretty fast time considering Iโ€™m coming back to it from the holidays.

 

Week 2: finally tried out the Wow hair spray that supposedly acts like a Brazilian blowout. While I donโ€™t think it was effective for me, I rarely take the time to dry my hair properly but always feel more confident when I do. 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

@TeamBIC Years ago I used to wash my hair everyday. Now I just wash my hair 2 times a week. After changing my hair washing routine, I noticed that my hair wasnโ€™t as dry. I make sure to apply hair oil before I start shampooing and a hair mask twice a week.  

After Iโ€™m done, I apply a leave in styling cream, frizz control oil, and leave in conditioner. Something I have been doing since I was a teenager. 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

I'm new to this and kind of missed the boat on the first week! I wasn't terribly active but did go for a polar bear dip in the ocean, which was very fun and bracing and exactly what I needed, so I'll count it!

 

For personal self-care, I'm trying to commit to washing my face before bed every day and wearing my night guard. We'll see. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

Week 1 (1/5 โ€“ 1/11) โ€“ Getting active

Admittedly, I was not very active this week... It was a "travel" week for me despite only being gone for ~1.5 days it really took a lot out of me. It's been freezing up north here so my desire to be outside even for a second more than I have to has been exceptionally low. Currently I am gearing up the courage to take my (small) dogs out for a walk in this insane winter cold front. I will be layering up on several fuzzy jackets and so will my dogs (it's freezing here... don't judge us). To combat the cold on my skin I'm currently doing a small pick me up with my LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Vanilla , my #Drunk Elephant Mini Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL , the coveted Drunk Elephant Mini Protiniโ„ข Polypeptide Moisturizer 0.50 oz / 15 mL and of course my tried/true Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl - Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Hand Cream For how cold and frigid it is, I'm really going to consider this quick 10-15 minute walk a win on the part of me and the little pooches. Wish us luck!

@QueenMarceline Enjoy your walk! It is so cold where I am that my car would not start today! Stay warm! I mentioned in another thread that I learned keep a hot water bottle at the bottom of your bed helps keep your bed warm all night! 

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

@QueenMarceline  we must be in the same area of the country because I basically have the same weather forecast and I agree - it's FREEZING here.

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

@AMK721 Are you in the midwest too? I'm currently in Michigan and having a hard time exiting from underneath my electric blanket LOL

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

@QueenMarceline  ding ding ding... yes, I'm in Michigan as well lol. Lived here most of my life so you'd think I'd be used to our winters but nope!

Re: 2022 Self-Care Check-in Challenge: Whatโ€™s Your Self-Care Goal of the Season?

@AMK721 Haha! How funny that you got that from the weather app. I will never get used to the winters here, so completely understood ๐Ÿ™‚
