This blog post on Skin Care for Self Care is written by the lovely Tova. A Body Shop At Home Consultant. You can join her Facebook Group here.
In March lockdown began and within a few weeks it put my life on hold. Suddenly I was furloughed, which meant I couldn’t work my job. I kept thinking it was a good thing because I was able to focus on my children and keep them happy!!
But I soon realised this was my problem. I was focusing on my children. And in the process forgot about myself and that I needed to be looked after too. I realised that I needed something for me. Something to keep my mind away from my children and my household chores for a few minutes every day.

A Skin Care Journey
It was at this point that my friend became a Body Shop At Home Consultant. I started following her journey. And decided that I wanted to earn some extra money. So, I joined her team and also became a consultant.
I was learning about skincare and moisturising your body and suddenly I was looking after my physical self! I had a skincare routine which I started doing every morning and suddenly I had 5 minutes to myself to do that. For a few minutes every day I focused on myself, and suddenly it felt so good.
I started noticing my skin and different ways I could help me be a better me. Not for the sake of my business but for the sake of my mental health.
I do a skincare routine that focuses on my skin for me and it feels amazing, Skincare can really help with self care.
