Trying to find the balance between what needs to be done, versus what has to be done. When life gets hectic, I try to carve out some time for myself and indulge in a little pampering. Some the things that I do include:
Book a mani-pedi or a relaxing massage. Stress goes down and you'll feel more relaxed. And you'll look great too. Making yourself a priority helps to increase your self-confidence and happiness.
Go for a walk or head to the gym. Getting your exercise on will increase endorphins and give you a natural, healthy glow. You'll feel better knowing that you're engaging in an activity with positive health benefits. If exercise isn't your thing, look into a yoga class. Renewing yourself in mind, body and spirit helps to achieve inner balance and beauty.
Have an at-home spa night. If you have children, arrange for your partner to watch them for an hour. Light a candle, put your hair up, soak in the tub, put on a face mask and enjoy. There are so many beauty products available now that allow you to duplicate a spa experience at home. Some of these products include sheet masks, exfoliating treatments, hair masks, aromatherapy candles and massage lotions/oils.
The best inner glow comes from being happy and well-balanced. Make sure that you're practicing good self-care by eating right and drinking eight glasses of water a day. Having beautiful skin, looking and feeling healthy and having a nurturing skincare regimen will help you look and feel your best. That translates into an inner glow that you won’t have to fake... it will be real!
