Let’s be honest: between work, home, family, a pandemic and the 100 things on your to-do list, self-care isn’t always a top priority. But the truth is, in times of stress (and let’s face it – the past year has been beyond stressful), self-care is one of the most important things we can do, not only to relax, but also to fill our cups.
While there are endless ways of practicing self-care, for us beauty lovers, an indulgent face mask, body scrub or pampering skincare regime is always top of the wish-list.
The Body Shop makes self-care rituals easy. With their latest skincare, body and fragrance essentials, made with hardworking natural ingredients, everyday can be a self-care day.
Our editor recently received The Body Shop’s Self-Care Box, an amazing collection of nourishing pamper products to help one unwind after a stressful day. The box included:
