I used to have a Self-Care schedule.
Sundays – nails
Mondays – deep condition hair
Tuesdays – exfoliate
Wednesday – Alpha Hydroxy arms
Thursday – face mask
Friday – Use Back Buddy
Saturday – Candlelight shower
That worked well for many years. Now however I have to use the heavy duty dye for my hair that takes 25-30 minutes instead of the quick color. So now I have a monthly spa day instead so I can use that tedious waiting time.
I bring in music (no candles as I am mixing chemicals.)
Hair dye for my hair.
Take off pedicure polish and clip nails.
Wash, exfoliate and use a sensitive skin peel. I also exfoliate and peel a couple times a week.
Time to shower and rinse hair dye. I also do a good shave instead of my normal quick shave below the knees while my deep conditioner is working. I use my pumice stone on my heels.
After I dry off I put on heavy duty moisturizer that smells like lavendar instead of my Neutrogena body oil and moisturize my face.
I put on my cozy, dark blue robe and give myself a pedicure while watching something good.
Sometimes I’ll use a heating pad while my toenails dry.
Lastly I use my Back Buddy.
Doing all my monthly beauty rituals at once saves me time and saves me having to remember to do it all throughout the month. (I post a checklist inside my bathroom cabinet.)
I schedule my next Spa Day as soon as I complete one.
