Self-care can take many forms, and on this International Self-Care Day, we're focusing on taking care of both our body and mind. There is no wrong way to celebrate yourself today, whether it's with a workout or a long bubble bath!
Not yet sure how to incorporate some self-care into your routine today? We have asked two of our Active Wow Ambassadors, @sarahzapmakeup and @__jessdivinelyme__, how they intend to spend their time during this international holiday, as well as their best kept secrets.
What does self-care mean to you?
Sarah: To me, self-care is more about emotional and physical wellness rather than going to the spa or getting your nails done. Taking the time to relax and escape from the world while keeping your body and mind healthy are super important. Using products like Active Wow's Collagen Booster and Glowing Skin have allowed me to take care of my body and skin from the inside out.
Jessica: What self-care means to me is to make sure your health is the main priority always. Most importantly, practicing mindfulness, mental activities such as reading, writing, spiritual/social activities, and spending time with family and friends.
What does your self-care routine look like?
Sarah: My self-care routine is not a night of spa treatments, but little things I do throughout the day to keep my body and mind healthy. Even something as little as drinking water is self care for me. Or using natural products like Active Wow's Charcoal Toothpaste to keep my teeth not only white but clean & healthy. As well as taking a few minutes, either in the morning or at night, to think about all the things I am grateful for in my life and what I have to look forward to in the future.
Jessica: My self care routine is very simple, I love to wake up and take about 60 seconds, clear my mind for the day ahead. Positive thoughts only are what I allow right when I wake up for my day, it sets my mood to remain calm. I struggle with anxiety so practicing this form of self care for me is very important before anything else.
Which Active Wow product is your favorite? What makes it so important to you?
Sarah: Some of my favourite Active Wow products are the Teeth Whitening Pens because I am always on the go! It keeps my teeth looking great during my busy lifestyle. I love how easy they are to use and how great they actually work. I also love the Collagen Booster and Glowing Skin products because your skin health starts from the inside. They are also so quick and easy to use - just pour a scoop into your favourite morning drink & go!
Jessica: One of my favorite Active Wow products would have to be Active Wow’s Premium Teeth Whitening Kit. It's easy to use when getting ready. Fast results that last with a brighter smile. My most important product is the Collagen Booster, I love that I can add it to any drink of my choice and still get all my vitamins in.
