September is Self Care Awareness Month and I have been making a conscious effort to take care of myself this month! I think it is so important, especially now, after spending so much time in quarantine, to take care of yourself and your mental health. So, I wanted to share with you a few of the ways I have been taking care of myself.
If you follow me on instagram, you know how much I truly enjoy exercising and taking time out of my day for working out. I use Tone It Up's App for work out videos and toning moves. I have been using these girls' work outs for years. I love how they keep the moves and routines different, so you never get bored. My friend Alyssa Cerrachio, is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, and she does IG Live Work Outs, which I also really enjoying doing and sometimes even partake in. I met her when I took her classes at Athleta's Studio in NYC and I just fell in love with her energy and how she challenges you and strengthens you during her work outs.
I also really enjoy taking baths. I have been using these bath bombs for the last few months. Their aromas are so relaxing and bath bombs are always a fun to use!
The biggest change for my self care for September is that I have started using Nira's Skincare Laser. I created this YouTube video to show you how it works and what I have noticed from using it once a day for a week. I'm really excited to continue using my Nira, to see how my fine lines and wrinkles fade away. This is definitely a product you have to keep up with and continue to use. You can get 10% off your Nira by using code "ALLYSON."
I'm also obsessed with doing my nails and keeping them healthy and well-manicured. I find it so relaxing to paint my nails. I usually do them at least twice a week, depending on how quickly they chip. I swear by using Duri's Rejuvacote Nail Growth & Strengthener and Seche Vite's Quick Dry Top Coat. Once those two are in the formula, you are guaranteed a great looking manicure!
Lastly, just in time for this post to be published, I received a care package from Zaaina Skincare that included their lavender bath bomb, lip balm, face & body soap bar and lavender soy candle. Anything lavender scented, immediately relaxes me and it was incredible how I could smell the lavender before I even opened the package! I used the candle immediately and I loved how the aroma of the candle filled up the room. The lavender lip balm was incredible as well, I loved the smell. It wasn't super long lasting but it was moisturizing.
Most of these items, I mentioned are listed in my Amazon Shop for easy shopping! What are some of the ways you focus on self-care and YOU!? Let me know in the comments below!
