2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge

Ready or not, 2023 is here, and the Beauty Insider Community is kicking the year off the best way we know how: with our annual Self-Care Check-In Challenge! Whether or not you’re a resolution-maker, there’s something kind of satisfying about the idea of a β€œfresh start” 🧼 and while we’re big supporters of maintaining boundaries and practicing self-care all year round, it doesn’t hurt to have a little extra motivation to set healthy (and/or relaxing) habits.

 

Think of this thread as the place to check in with your fellow Community members and share how you’re practicing different types of self-care – they can be inspired by our weekly inspo prompts, or based on your own unique self-care needs or beauty intentions. If one theme doesn’t speak to you – by all means, skip it! You can still stop by to cheer on your fellow Community members! πŸ€—

 

  • Week 1 (1/4-1/10): Perfecting your nighttime skincare routine
  • Week 2 (1/11-1/17): Adding some movement to your day (and post-exercise relaxation!)
  • Week 3 (1/18-1/24): Spending extra time on body care (dry brushing, exfoliating treatments, bath time?)
  • Week 4 (1/25-1/31): Organizing your beauty collection (it can be therapeutic!) 
  • Week 5 (2/1-2/7): Relaxing with home scents and candles β—€
  • Week 6 (2/8-2/14): Experimenting with a new-to-you wellness trend (supplements, rollers, CBD…)
  • Week 7 (2/15-2/21): Getting a good night’s sleep
  • Week 8 (2/16-2/28): Trying a healthy scalp and haircare routine

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

Although I try to avoid fragrance in my day-to-day life (skincare, work) I enjoy a familiar scent. My signature scent is Carolina Herrera Very Good Girl Glam and that tends to spill over into scents I gravitate towards such as candles, room sprays, etc. Scents that share the same notes not only bring me back to a familiar spot, it empowers me

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

And, don’t forget AROMATHERAPY in business!!!  It uplifts us, clears our breathing and passageways, calms us, brightens us, invokes us with sensuality and date night!  The date night one - the perfect gift for your date as a surprise, in a little box just snuck onto the table while they’re not looking!  

 

Why?  Bc this is what we love about the spa!!!!  And shopping - we remember you, and we love to come back!!!  Especially to buy the beautiful scents you have in your shop!!!!  

 

This world here is forgotten (scents in business) so if you have a business - remember your diffuser and try out some of your blends here!  And some of your favorite candles - that you can sell too!  A little bit of you and your favorites, to share with the world.  

some of my favorites are the layered candles - these I discovered at a pajama shop in balboa by the water, in Orange County - and it was the candles that i go back for - and the one of a kind jewelry, and the cool one of a kind books next to the candles that you can’t find anywhere but in the small boutique - this is why they’re my favorite and I seek them out bc of what you can find here that you can’t find anywhere else!  

remember this when gifting to self and others and when opening business!  It’s the perfect gift set to say I love you - a beautiful candle, a really cool book, and a beautiful piece of jewelry - things you get to keep for life and one that you get to keep gifting!

and, I’ll create a little place online where we can add additions to the little hidden gems I’ve found so we can all share with one another these!

 

(....this message is for her to share all of her favorites with us! Bc she has so much to share! She loves to share and I want her to work in editorials and share them there and open business and share her love of life and world with us too!  Bc this is what lifes about)

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

Essential oils are my next favorite go to in the scents department!!!  


In a water diffuser at home so your home is always perfectly scented to your tastes!  

Bright and citrusy for the morning time, eucalyptus for the congested, feeling under the weather time, something lavender-mint that’s cooling and calming for bedtime....there are so many of them!!!!  Individual scents and perfect pairings made by others!  

 

Insiders Tip: The smell test is always best - as our body will tell us what we don’t like and what’s just soooooo lovely, cheery, relaxing, the one, calming, etc for us.  
It’s one of our best guides in life!

 

And, you can add them to the bath with some bath salts for a perfectly luxurious spa bath at home!

 

and, you can add them with a carrier oil to a little roller ball and make your own perfume or cologne for you and your loved ones and your little ones!!!!  

....

I wanna try making my own scent at the scent factory!  Maybe I’ll open one so we can all try this and I’ll call it: The Scent Factory, of course!  I love to open business. Makes me happy.

 

 

 

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

I keep a giant bag of tea light candles on hand, and on occasion - I turn off all the lights and light candles all around with a few of my favorite scented ones for aromatherapy and sit by the fire and have some tea or wine and just listen to some music and fall asleep to candlelight.  A record player is a pretty cool addition here.

 

the tea lights burn themselves out.  I blow out the big ones (or cover them and let them put themselves out). And fall asleep by the fire and candlelight.  

 

Dont put them near a drafty window or chiffon like curtains, or with kittens jumping and playing but, without danger around.  It’s a nice addition to life.  And test it out one day..... keep them on one night and watch....when you’re not looking, they’ll put themselves out for you!

beeswax candles are my favorite...they’re the most beautiful!  

 
....

Insiders Tip: IKEA sells a giant bag all year round for under $5!  Which is a pretty sweet deal!!!!! .... With these, you can have a night in, once a week as a check-in, wind-down, relaxing ritual.  And, the perfect night in with a home cooked meal snuggled up next to your loved ones!  With a board game or two, it makes the perfect date night!

Great tips, thanks!

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

What type/kind of #CBD is a good product to get started with? I've been wanting to try it for the longest time but its so many different products I don't know where to begin. Thanks for any suggestions. @Encourage @inspire @uplift @motivate @empower

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

I love to wind down in a bubble bath with my candle lavender spa by wood wick burning. It’s just so relaxing and the scent is amazing! 

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

I'm definitely doing that tomorrow. I don't know if I want to use my ##Moroccanoil bathset or my new ##SoldeJaneir bathset both smells absolutely amazing

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

ohhh I’m going to do this!

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

To relax and unwind I like doing little spa moments at home. It can be anything I have on hand. Like a face mask, a hair mask, a scented bath bomb and it's just a little heavenly self care moment. 

 

I love Nests candles for spa scents or Lush's assortment of bath bombs, I have a box full of those scented beauties.

My nest favorite is

#NEST New York Grapefruit Candle 

And the Galaxy bath bomb from Lush is my top pick from thier lineup.

I've been wanting to get a nest candle. I really don't care for anything in the citrus category. Do you have any other nest candles you could recommend? I'm more into the floral and masculine scents. Well I hope you are having an amazing day/night 

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

What a lovely way to unwind @CynthieLu! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

A spa moment at home… such a cool self care relaxing experience @CynthieLu!

Re: 2023 Self-Care Check-In Challenge: Week 5 - Relax and unwind!

I'm big into relaxing in my tub when I can @Saradestin

Relaxing with soy melts combinations, of β€œJasmine β€œ & β€œSandlewood” melting away.  Reading a book in the solarium as the warmth sun is piercing it’s way on my face!
