Self Care Sunday - Turmeric + Honey Reviving Face Mask
January 2018 // By Natalie Jean
Hello friends and blog readers! So excited for this new little "segment" on A Tiny Traveler Blog. Not sure if it'll be every week, every other week, every month. Who knows! But at the moment, I have a few new products, self-care practices, and thoughts about the whole concept of self-care that I want to try out and share with you.
Today, I am sharing a new face mask that I got at Home Goods (surprisingly) and I loooove it. It's called Turmeric + Honey Reviving Face Mask from Pearlessence. From what I can find online, its T.J. Maxx's beauty brand. (Correct me if I'm wrong!) I found some other items from them on Amazon too and they look awesome.
The application was really easy and after 15-20 minutes I washed my face and felt so fresh. My skin felt hydrated and refreshed and I definitely will be using it again. I love when I can find things at stores that I normally wouldn't expect to find (like a face mask in Home Goods). After the face mask, I spent some time listening to a new record, Leon Bridges, and then watching a new show on Netflix. It felt good to just have a little time to myself and relax.
Something that I have realized about self care lately is that a lot of girls on social media and in the blogging world seem to idolize it. They're shout "treat yo' self" from the rooftops and think that buying a new dress or taking another day all to themselves is all there is to self care. Yes, these things are nice and can brighten your day, but its not all there is to the idea of self care.
Self care is so important! But it goes so much deeper than a bubble bath or face mask. Its all about taking time to listen to your emotional, physical, even spiritual needs. Do you need a nap? Should you put screens away and go for a walk? Are you getting enough water or vitamins in your diet? When was the last time you read a book to better your life or prayed or spent time with your family? Self care is so much more than material.

I just wanted to take some time and encourage you to not only enjoy a face mask while listening to soothing music in the glow of candles, or veg out on the couch to your favorite movie with a glass of something fancy, but really listen to your body. Care for it in every way you can!
