5 Ways to Spoil Yourself

Being a modern woman is anything but easy. Between your professional responsibilities, family obligations, and trying to find time to hit the gym so you can maintain peak health, it’s normal to feel like you’re constantly performing a juggling act in a circus. Because you do so much for others, you probably have virtually no time left over for yourself. And although you’re not the type to complain, you do deserve to treat yourself!

If you can’t remember the last time that you temporarily slowed down and just did something for yourself, it’s time to break that streak. Since it’s been so long that you’ve done anything of that nature, you may have literally forgotten what options are available. If you don’t even know where to start in terms of spoiling yourself, here are five ideas to help you get started:

Combine a Long Bath with a Facial: The perfect bath is all about the details. This means you need candles, your favorite music and soothing bath crystals. In addition to letting your entire body relax, you can enjoy the feeling of rejuvenation by giving yourself a facial. Since you’ll be in a warm environment and won’t have to rush, you’ll be able to fully wash your face. Follow this with a good peptide cream to help prolong your youthful looking skin.

Have a Girls’ Night Out Dinner: When was the last time you were able to have a few hours with just your closest girlfriends? Since their schedules have probably been as packed as yours, it’s time to stage an intervention for your group. Whether it’s by email or phone, tell them that you’re all going out for a girls’ dinner and you’re not taking no for answer!

Buy a New Color of Lipstick: A new shade of lipstick can refresh your look and really make it pop. Not only is the experience of looking for the perfect color of lipstick a lot of fun, but once you receive your order, you’ll feel great whenever you put it on.

Have a Solo Wine and Movie Night: If there’s a night when your house is going to be empty, don’t feel like you have to clean it or do anything else that could be labeled as productive. Instead, take advantage of this opportunity to truly relax. Whether there’s a new movie you’ve been wanting to see or a classic that you want to watch again, pair it with a delicious bottle of wine and you can count on having a really enjoyable evening.

Even if you take less than an hour for yourself, you’ll find that this experience is the perfect way to recharge your batteries!

Lipstick 101

Your lips are one of the most prominent features of your face. When someone looks at you, chances are they will notice your lips in less than a second. Because they are such a visible feature, you always want your lips to look their best. The most effective way to accomplish this goal is by using a quality moisturizing lipstick.

The reason you don’t want to simply use the first tube of lipstick that you come across is because low quality lipstick can smear or give your lips an unnatural appearance. Since the goal of lipstick is to enhance the natural shape, size and color of your lips, you don’t want a product that ends up looking like paint.

If you want a lipstick that’s always going to look great, here are the five traits you need to look for:

Long-Lasting: A good lipstick should last for at least 5 hours. That means you can go through your entire day and only have to reapply once. One reason you shouldn’t settle for lipstick with a short lifespan is because you don’t have time to constantly reapply it throughout the day. Another reason this trait is important is because you don’t want to have to constantly look in the mirror to see if your lipstick appears faded or has started streaking. A quality lipstick will give you the confidence that goes along with knowing that you always look great.

Quality Shades: It seems like there are an endless number of lipstick colors available. However, there’s a big difference between the quality of many shades. By choosing a lipstick that has a vibrant color, you will not only be able to make your lips look great, but also brighten your skin tone and ensure that your teeth always look sparkling white.

Designed to Complement: Unless you’re buying lipstick for a stage production, you don’t want anything that’s too outrageous. Instead, the best lipsticks are ones that use their own color to complement your natural lip color. If a lipstick completely masks your natural lip color, it’s probably not one you should purchase.

Moisturizing: Since you’re going to have lipstick on all day, you don’t want it to make your lips feel dry. Instead, you want a lipstick that includes ingredients that provide a continuous source of moisture to your lips.

Affordable: High prices aren’t a guarantee of quality. In fact, most lipsticks that cost $30 or more are primarily driven by their marketing instead of their quality. You can easily find higher quality options that cost about half as much.

How Do You Know If a Lipstick Has All 5 Quality Traits?

The easiest way to figure out if a lipstick possesses all five quality traits is to read reviews from people who have actually bought and used it. Now that you know what to look for in lipstick, you’ll be able to quickly evaluate reviews and determine if a specific lipstick has everything that you expect.

Don’t Forget Your Skin Care

Your beautiful lips will look even better with anti-aging skin care products designed to reduce wrinkles and moisturize your skin. Make a dedicated skin care regimen part of your daily routine.
