In winter our lips often get dry so it’s important to do lip scrubs from time to time! 😊
Today lets make honey & cinnamon scrub! 😀
🔸️ 1/4 cup brown sugar (you can use regular sugar here or even salt but brown sugar is tastier!)
🔸️1 Tbsp. coconut oil (this can be substituted with any sort of oil such as almond, olive, etc.)
🔸️1 Tbsp. raw unfiltered honey (that pretend honey just won’t do)
🔸️1 tsp. cinnamon powder (you can even do ginger powder, nutmeg, or cloves.) …
➡️ Combine ingredients in a small bowl using a wooden spoon, mix everything well.
➡️ Transfer to a small glass jar with a lid.
➡️ To use: Rub a small amount onto your lips in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes.
➡️ Rinse (or you could just lick it off if you really wanted too…😃) off with a wet washcloth and feel the difference!…
Time for 4th part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
🔸️ 19. Embrace and love the things that make you different 💜. This is what makes you special.
🔸️ 20. Realize that beauty cannot be defined. It is what you see it as. Don’t let any of those Photoshopped magazines make you feel like your body isn’t perfect. Even those models don’t look like that in real life 😉
🔸️ 21. Follow your passion 🤩. You know that thing that gets you so excited but scares you at the same time. The thing you really want to do but have convinced yourself it won’t work. You should go do that!
🔸️ 22. Be patient but persistent 💪. Self-love needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.
🔸️ 23. Treat others with love and respect ❤🙏. Treat others how you want to be treated. That doesn’t mean everybody will always repay the favor, but that’s their problem not yours.
🔸️ 24. Learn to say ‘no’. Saying ‘no’ sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a smart person 😉
Time for 3rd part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
🔸️13. Start each day by telling yourself something really positive 🤗. How well you managed to do something, how lovely you look today. Anything that you would say to your friend to make her/him smile – tell that to yourself! 😁
🔸️14. Eat healthy! 🥦 Fill your body with food and drink that nourishes it and makes it thrive.
🔸️15. Don’t believe everything you think 🚫. There is an inner critic inside of us trying to keep us small and safe, remember about that!
🔸️16. Surround yourself with positive people who love and encourage you 💞. Support each other, help each, be good to each other!
🔸️17. Stop the comparisons. There is no one on this planet like you we are all unique in our own way and that’s what makes this world beautiful! 😍
🔸️18. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new 🤩. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before.
You know what’s best kind of self-love/self-care? 🤔 Taking care of your own health! 🤗
➡️ First of all, treat yourself well! 🙏 Have a closer look on what you’re eating 👅. Do you plan your meals and grocery shopping 🗒 or do you just go to a store, buy whatever you see and put it all on a pan just to „throw” something into your belly 🤷🏼♀️? Do you bring enough vitamins, proteins, fiber? 🧐 Are your meals nutritious? 🥦🍌🍜
Now, how’s your physical activity? 🤔 Do you workout 💪, practice some sport 🏀, go for walks , do yoga or pilates🧘🏼♀️? Physical activity has as much impact on your physical health as healthy eating 😉
And now, how’s your mental health? 🧠 Do you sleep well? 😴 Do you feel confident? Are you anxiety free? 😇
Physical health (so healthy eating and regular physical activities) have great impact on mental health too! You know what they say – healthy body, healthy mind 😉
➡️ Secondly, do you examine yourself? 📈📊 Do you do regular blood tests 💉, regular ultrasounds or x-rays of your stomach, lungs or heart? Do you go see a doctor regularly or only when you feel bad already? 😶
I examine myself once a year. I do blood tests, check my heart, my lungs, my stomach and lady parts. You should too! 🤗
➡️ And lastly, remember to seek help whenever you need it 🙏⚠️No matter if it’s something about your physical health or, especially, mental health! If you feel bad don’t hide it away! Go and get some help! 🙏
Winter is so bad for hair! 😖 They get weaker and weaker with every temperature change and constant putting a hat on and off makes them electrify and dry 💔
Try this homemade hair mask to repair them 🤗
➡️ 1. Almond & egg
🔸️1/4 cup almond oil
🔸️1 raw egg 🥚
Combine the almond oil and egg until you get a smooth mixture. Optionally you can just whisk the egg and apply it to your hair 🤗
Section your hair and start applying the mixture to your scalp and through the length of your hair. 😊
Wait for 40 minutes and then rinse your hair as usual.
Use a good shampoo and conditioner, preferably one without sulfates.
Almond oil acts as an emollient.The egg repairs damage in the hair shaft with its high protein content. This is considered to be one of the best remedies for frizz ☺
➡️ 2.Beer mask! 😜
You Will Need
🔸️ 1 pint of beer 🍺
Decarbonate your beer by pouring it into a bowl. Let it sit overnight until it goes flat.
Wash your hair with shampoo and then pour the beer through your hair while massaging your scalp.
Rinse the beer out with cold water. 😊
Beer restores moisture and nourishes your hair 😀. It is also used as a cleansing rinse that removes build-up. This helps keep your cuticles healthy.
➡️ 3.Honey And Yogurt
You Will Need
🔸️2-3 tablespoons yogurt
🔸️1 tablespoon honey 🍯
Mix the honey and yogurt in a bowl.
Apply the mixture on your scalp and hair. Leave it on for 30 minutes.
Wash with cold water. 😊
Do this once a week to restore moisture and maintain your hair.
Yogurt is an effective deep conditioner and honey helps in retaining moisture. It also acts as an emollient and makes hair smoother and shinier. 🤗
P.s. And have some macaroons 😋🤤
Do you celebrate #ValentinesDay? 💕 Do you like it? 🤗
I don’t think there’s any other holiday that brings that much pressure 😰
Before you start comparing yourself or your relationship to others while scrolling Instagram and seeing photos from so-to-seem perfect dates, 🙄 remember that what people post on Instagram isn’t their everyday life 😉. We all pick a photo that we look good on 🤩, we all pick a moment we are happy about ☺ and we usually share good news and positive things about ourselves 👍.
Just because a couple posts a picture of them smiling and having a romantic evening, it doesn’t mean they don’t fight, they don’t have any bad moments or bad days 🤷🏼♀️
No one is perfect and there’s no such thing as a perfect couple 😉. We all have ups and downs. I fight with my husband too and that’s normal 🤷🏼♀️
Another thing – before you start comparing your partner to others and before you become overcritical remember that there are other ways to say „I love you” than buying flowers 🌹 or expensive gifts 🎁. If your partner doesn’t say „I love you” often it doesn’t mean that he/she doesn’t 😉. Maybe he/she’s just not that into words but shows it in everyday small deeds? 🤗 Like covering you with a blanket when you fall asleep on a couch? 😴 Or making you hot lemon tea when you don’t feel that well? 🤧 Or making you a sandwhich even though he/she is tired and doesn’t feel like getting up from couch? 🥪 Those are all acts of love too, remember 😉
And lastly – if you’re single and don’t celebrate V-Day at all just take it easy 🤗. Being single is not bad and you should NOT feel sad that you’re not on some romantic date or that you didn’t get any flowers 😉. Buy yourself flowers ⚘, cook yourself a nice meal 🥘, spend a lovely evening with yourself or maybe with another friend who’s single 😊?
Even thought I celebrate V-Day now with my husband, I’ve been single for 24 years before 😉 and believe me, I’ve been there and I know the feeling but there’s no need to be sad about some holiday, just get out and live that day as any other! 😁
