Take The Time To Pamper Your self

Everyone needs quality time for themselves. Women, especially, need that time to pamper themselves a little after that busy day. As that old saying goes, men may work from sun to sun, but a woman's work is never done. That saying certainly stands true; a little time set aside for yourself isn't too much to ask. It doesn't matter if it is late evening, nighttime, or early morning. Take the time and the steps to pamper yourself. Remember that you as a whole are what you are stuck with for life. So treat yourself well and like yourself.
Take a foot soak. Use a small pan or tub and fill it with warm water and add baby oil with vitamin E to soak your feet in.
Scrub your feet. Have on hand your favorite foot scrub and scrub your feet after your warm foot soaking. Sea salt works great, too.

Delight in bubbles. Consider taking a full bubble bath, and add a face mask.
Caress your feet with softness. Have some Footsies or socks ready to put on after applying some cream or Vaseline. Cut the toes out of old socks to sleep in to allow the cream to soak in overnight.
Soothe the hands. Take care of your hands the same as you would your face by applying hand lotion or even your face cream, especially at night.
Spritz the face. Keep a small spray bottle filled with spring water to mist your face during the day and at night.
Deep cleanse the face. Using a clay facial mask (such as the avocado, kaolin and rosemary) on your hands works great and leaves hands soft.

Give all the skin a treat. Don't forget to add lotion to the rest of your body and pay attention to the neck area.
Add moisture to your hair. Keep a spray bottle filled with tap water to mist your hair. This works great on fine hair that is layered.

Use scent to lift your mood. Using vanilla or lilac body sprays will add that special touch after a nice shower or bath.
Treat the legs. Don't forget to put cream on your legs - cocoa butter works great.
Jazz up the teeth. Get in the habit of taking care of your teeth, and don't forget to floss.
Eat well. Prepare yourself a generous meal, relax and really taste the food.
Chill down for the night. Rent yourself a good movie, kick your feet up, and relax. Spend a little time at night to yourself.

No matter if you decide to pamper yourself daily or weekly, take the time. Everyone deserves to be pampered sometimes.
There is nothing vain or wrong about thinking of yourself, for we do tend to put ourselves last.
We were pampered as babies, but now that we are grown we have to do it ourselves.
If you run out of your favorite facial scrub, a tiny bit of baking soda mixed with a little water works great.
For exfoliating your skin, there are many great inexpensive soaps out there that have oatmeal and other ingredients in them.
Drink lots of spring water.
Exercise in moderation and eat the same way.
Use a white nail pencil underneath your nail tips if you're wearing clear nail polish.
Save up money so you can go shopping and treat yourself to a few gifts.
