Unleash the transformative power of a self care ritual. It’s time to glow and flow. This is what you need.
By Ava Wilde
In the wild rollercoaster ride of motherhood, it can be a mammoth task to carve out those precious moments for self-care and self love.
Say goodbye to rushed make-up sessions in the rearview mirror and hello to a self care ritual that will nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
“THIS ISN’T ABOUT ADDING MORE TO YOUR PLATE, BUT SHIFTING HOW YOU APPROACH WHAT’S ALREADY THERE. IT’S ABOUT NOURISHING YOUR SOUL, ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR WORTH, AND TAPPING INTO THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF A SELF CARE RITUAL.”
Rites of Beauty
A self care ritual is so much more than a routine. It’s about savouring every moment, being present, and embracing the transformative power of beauty that goes skin deep. It’s about honouring your body and yourself, engaging all your senses, and creating an oasis of peace and positivity.
Start your day by greeting your beautiful self. Look in the mirror and say a positive affirmation like, “I am strong. I am beautiful. I am enough.” Yes, Mama, you are!
Follow this with a skincare ritual that feels good to you. You could massage your face with a jade roller after applying your favourite serum, or treat yourself to a nourishing face mask.
Listen to your skin, and give it what it needs.
Embracing the Pause
With kids and countless responsibilities, it’s easy to rush through things. But our challenge to you is to embrace the pause.
Enjoy every stroke of mascara, every brush of blush, every sweep of lip balm. Notice the texture, the colour, the sensation. This simple shift from doing to being can make your self care ritual a delightful meditation.
In the evening, see your cleansing routine as an opportunity to wash away the day’s stress along with the grime. There’s something incredibly therapeutic about gently removing your make-up, revealing your glowing, natural beauty. Opt for a soothing cleanser, and follow up with a toner and moisturiser that suit your skin type.
Keen to take it up a notch? Turn this routine into a sensory experience.
Light some scented candles or a diffuser with calming essential oils. Put on some relaxing music or a guided meditation. Make your bathroom a spa-like sanctuary where you can reconnect with your inner goddess.
Finally, remember that rest is a self care ritual too. Ensure you are getting enough sleep because mama, you deserve it!
As you drift into dreamland, take a few moments to reflect on the day’s joys and let go of any worries.
A Beautiful Journey
Remember, this isn’t about adding more to your plate, but shifting how you approach what’s already there. It’s about nourishing your soul, acknowledging your worth, and tapping into the transformative power of self care.
Remember, you’re not just a mama. You’re a force of nature, a goddess, a queen. Your beauty doesn’t lie in a cream or a lip gloss pot; it’s in you. And a self care ritual? It’s just a way to celebrate this beautiful, radiant, undeniable truth.
Embrace the power of a self care ritual and shine on.
