Y'all Doing Alright? How I Prioritize My Mental Health With Skincare, Appearance & Content Creating
Long time no see! Listen, life has been lifing on my end - but what else is new?
As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to an end, I wanted to write a blog post on how I've been intentionally managing stress in my life.
Skincare - or skincAIER as I like to call it
I have prioritized investing in my skincare routine and trying new products that don't irritate my skin. Now I actually found some really affordable skincare products on Amazon that I've been loving. These Grace & Stella 24K Gold Mask really give
me spa vibes and allow me to relax and tune out for the day! You should try one out, I have it linked below!
I also ensure that I have a consistent skincare routine - day & night! I've been loving this new Lancôme Advanced Génifique Face Serum - it's a pretty penny but worth every dollar. I've also added Grace & Stella Eye Cream to prevent bags/dark circles under my eyes and their Rose Water toner which sprays so nicely, I dare to say better than Mario Bedescu!
You can find my skincare favorites that have been making me whole here on my Amazon Storefront!
Appearance - because who doesn't want to look good to feel GOOD.
To be honest, 99% of the time I am in scrubs. So that caused me to neglect buying new clothes for myself. I decided to make a wishlist of clothes to get back into the swing of investing in my appearance. After becoming a mom, my body changed in unfamiliar ways and I really felt like I lost my style - so lets get it back together friends!
My Wishlist will always include the following types of products: a staple, "something pricey" & a "girl you're crazy" option! Here's my list for May!
My staples finds that I want to buy are from H&M & Zara - here's a top I'm eyeing for the Renaissance Tour! My "something pricey" is some designer shades - I really want to start a good collection so here are a few I've had my eye on & lastly my "girl you're crazy" option is a Goyard Saint Louis tote - now hear me out! I found this website called Vestaire Collective where you can buy & sell luxury items! If I get my eyes on a good deal with a few discount codes - it's mine! lol
Lastly, CREATING is keeping my mental intact.
I've had the opportunity to work with a few brands this month like Fabletics, Gaia Herbs Pro & Topicals ! I'm so blessed to have the opportunity to build and expand my personal brand. I've also created my own personal content about mental health and dental health and how they impact each other - check it out here!
I pray that you prioritize your mental health always. The older I get, and the more challenges I face, I realize that if my mental state isn't healthy, I'm of no use to anyone. Not my patients, not my family, not my friends. It is not selfish to prioritize you, and I hope that some of the ways I focus on my mental can benefit you as well.
