The end of Summer is here, and I had a ton of fun. I will admit, however, that year after year my self-care rituals tend to take a bit of a beating over the summer months. I have WAY less time for myself, as I try to navigate the kids’ busy schedules as well as my own. Not to mention the fact that Summer weather can really wreak havoc on my hair, skin, and nails. I usually come out of summer with lovely memories…and the need for a major glow-up. I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about beauty and self-care rituals, so I thought I would share a bit about how I get myself back into shape in terms of investing care into myself and my needs. Fall is a great time to commit to better routines. I’ve been involving Marlowe a lot more in my rituals as well! She doesn’t necessarily partake in them if they’re not age-appropriate, but I like to have her learn from me what it means to allow yourself that time just for you and whatever your body or soul is craving. As a woman, I hope she learns from me that it’s ok to take care of yourself and to find rituals that make you feel beautiful, strong, and relaxed. Also, to have a facial hour with my daughter in matching pajamas I designed is just too much fun. I couldn’t resist! LOL. I hope you love some of these self-care products as much as I do!
Animalz Tiger Moisturizing Sheet Mask
Marlowe loves these cute little animal face masks!
Self-Care Sunday Nourishing Face Mask
I like this nourishing, simple face mask that’s gentle enough to use for a Mommy + Me moment too!

Speaking of masks, these hydra cooling, firming patches are incredible for stressed-out and aging summer skin!
Macadamia Professional Natural Oil Nourishing Deep Repair Hair Mask
I like to use this mask on both me and Marlowe to combat dry hair from the beach and pool!
Epielle Hydrating Foot Masks
These moisturizing foot masks are a must after the wear and tear of the beach.
Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel
For sloughing off dead skin cells, I swear by these exfoliating pads! I always get back to using them come fall, after I’ve backed off them a bit during the sunnier months of the year.
Unwind Bath Gem
To de-stress in the bath, I love to use these bath bombs with CBD! No kiddos, though!
Lavender Harvest Foaming Bath
For soothing time with my kids, we like to use this heavenly lavender bubble bath. It helps us get to sleep easier at night.
Retinol Reform® Treatment Serum
Retinol at night is a must for me after summer, and this one by Shani Darden is my favorite because it’s gentle but effective.
Moon Dew 1% Bakuchiol + Peptides Retinol Alternative Eye Cream
This is a great anti-aging eye cream as well!
Mini Detox Shampoo
Product buildup, sunscreen, and skin cells can make hair dull. I use this detox shampoo once a week to get shiny hair back!
Silicone Scalp Massager
This scalp massager feels AMAZING on a tired scalp and helps stimulate growth.
No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment
I love this hair treatment after the elements make my hair dry and brittle during the summer. It’s a workhorse!
Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool
If you don’t have a Gua Sha tool yet, they’re a must for self-care moments, and I have this one!
G.Tox Ultimate Dry Brush
If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how much I love a Dry Brush for lymphatic drainage and to combat skin sagging and dimpling.
Ultra Restore Body Butter with Hyaluronic Acid
I slather on this body butter to lock in skin moisture and prolong my bronzed glow!
'REPLICA' Mini Candle Set
These candles are a bit of a splurge, but I love them, and the mini set makes it affordable.
I just love this! I put some items in my basket for my college student. I figured she could do a end of summer self care with some of the girls on her floor. Thanks for these great suggestions. 💚
aww I love that! You’re such a good mama!
