It’s no secret that I take self-care very seriously. We have the obligation to look after ourselves properly so that we are able to present our ‘best self’ to the world. For today’s post, I am showcasing a few of my favorite ways to make sure I look and feel my best — with an added Valentine’s Day theme!

Starting with one of my favorite cruelty-free and vegan products: LUSH Lip Scrub! LUSH carries many different flavors, but “This Kiss” is the perfect little Valentine’s pick me up. This lip scrub is made of food-grade, delicious vegan ingredients. You simply apply a small amount to clean lips, scrub with small circular motions and lick off the excess.
I’ve recently discovered Valentina’s Home-Brewed Pure Body Care while exploring the beauty section of Whole Foods. These Magickal Mineral Bath Salts are lovely. Run a hot bath, and mix in these salts for a detoxifying and sensual experience. With the scent of chocolate and roses – the True Love variety screams Valentine’s Day!
Roses are a classic gift idea this time of year – why not put an unexpected twist on the idea with 1,000 Roses Body Lotion by Andalou Organics? In their words:This ultimate skin food blends rosehips and argan oils with fair trade shea and cocoa butters to smooth and soften dry skin.
Soothing rosewater, rose stem cells, pomegranate antioxidants, and ultra-hydrating aloe vera effectively protect skin’s moisture barrier and stimulate healthy cell renewal for an all-over body treatment.
Fruit Stem Cell Science renews skin at the cellular level, blending nature and knowledge for visible results.
You can find Andalou Organics at Whole Foods and Earthfare. I also use the 1,000 Roses Eye Revive Contour Gel.
Lastly, you may want to consider this Love Potion elixir by Aura Cacia Essential Oils. This spicy-sweet blend of mandarin orange, lemon, cardamom, sandalwood and other fragrant essential oils are perfect for setting the mood. Place a few drops into an essential oil diffuser and let the magic happen. Find my favorite essential oil diffuser: Here.
