If you are like me, you love tapping into that Queen side of your self and are always looking for more self care ideas to amplify that energy and increase your self worth.
The Falsehood of a Masculine Dominant World
We live in a world, where woman are programmed to believe that they must do more achieve more and take action more in order to be seen as a true Queen.
We believe that if we only deserve to treat our selves minimally only after everyone else has been treated.
However, this is a huge falsehood once we realize that we are already enough, and that nothing outside of us should determine our worth but our selves.
Why are self care practices so important?
One of the foundational mindsets of a Queen is that she sees her self as worthy of being treated with only the best of the best. She doesn’t settle for mediocre.
These self care ideas really tap into that mindset and are the basis for the why.
Stepping into this higher level of awareness of your worth and giving it a permanent space in your mind is not always easy and takes practice.
One of the simple ways in which you remind yourself of your value is through self care. However you can further remind yourself of your “queen-hood” by taking that self care routine up a notch and indulge yourself in some royal pampering.
That’s right, its time to get bad and boogie with it, because ultimately how you treat your self sets the tone for how others treat you. Long gone are the days where we need to feel guilty for treating our selves to the highest degree.
There are many ways that you can sneak in some boogie pampering and many of these dont take much time out of your schedule at all. Lets get into these self care ideas and learn why they are effective.
1. Spa Facial Mask
There is just something about kicking back with a “bev” of choice and a nice creamy face mask as you binge on your favorite series. Face mask are a great way to show your skin some love after a long week, trip, or stressful experience.
2. Boujee Candles
When I say boujee… I am not talking about those candles that you can find at target or home goods.
I am talking about those super luxurious once that make your place smell like a 5 star boutique resort hotel! The ones you question why you are spending $30-$60 on.
Splurging on just one of these and using it for bath time or just to make your place smell expensive can really up the way you see yourself. If I was visiting a queen, I would expect her to have the finest of goods in her home.
Therefore, it is only right that a queen likely has 1 or 2 of these in her repertoire. You can find more affordable luxury candles if you are not feeling a splurge just yet. I will list some below.
3. Egyptian Cotton Towel
This self care idea is a basic but often forgotten about. An Egyptian cotton towel provides a nice luxurious way to wrap your self up after you have emerged from bathing.
The feeling of being cocooned in a giant fluffy bath towel after a hot bath just really cant be compared.
4. Silk/ Satin pillowcase or Head scarf
A Queen always protects her crown, and that includes her own locks. Cotton pillowcases tend to make breakage happen much easier since the fabric is literally pulling and snagging at your hair.
Sleeping with a silk or faux silk pillow case or head scarf is much more supportive to your hair as it protects against the snagging that occurs during a nights rest.
5. Regular Manicures/Pedicures
When we are busy or stressed, it can be easy to get stuck in a routine of neglecting your hands and toes.
However, going for routine manicures and pedicures can add some more beauty into your life and remind you that you are a feminine creature who deserves to take it easy once in a while.
By making the effort to keep your hands and toes done, you are showing yourself and the world that you value your self and are putting your self first.
6. Avocado/olive/coconut oil on Eyelashes
Putting oil on your lashes has the ability to naturally moisturize them resulting in increased hydration and lash growth.
I love doing this trick to naturally lengthen and boost my lashes.
Simply start by taking a clean mascara wand or spooly and dip it lightly into either avocado, olive or coconut oil. Gently run the spooly over your lashes.
You can purchase an empty DIY mascara tube and spooly for super cheap and pour oil into to make it even easier.
Be careful to use a light hand as you want to avoid getting any oil into your eyes. Do this morning and night and you will have a much more affordable way to longer lashes in a couple weeks!
7. High Grade Magnesium Bath Salts and a Good Quality Bath Scrub
Let me tell you something, you have never bathed in bath salts until you bathe in high grade magnesium bath salts.
Magnesium is a trace mineral that we are often depleted of due to the modern day diet.
Some forms of magnesium are not as pure as others so it is best to pay attention to quality and not necessarily price.
Magnesium is needed in our system especially at night to relax the muscles, ease racing thoughts, and regenerate your system.
Especially given the stressful and overwhelming times we are living in, a high grade magnesium bath can help clear up a lot of the stuck energy we are feeling right now.
Adding a magnesium salt bath to your repertoire can be the equivalent of a royal bath in that you are giving your body true nourishment.
You should be able to find magnesium bath salts at your local natural grocer.
My favorite type of Magnesium bath crystals that I highly recommend due to the quality and grade are Secret Energy Salts – Magnesium Bath Crystals
For a good bath scrub, I prefer Frank Body Scrub
8. Skin Care Routine
Having a daily and nightly skin care routine is important to maintaining healthy skin and a fresh appearance.
Everyone is different when it comes to skin needs, how ever you can learn what works best for your skin by understanding your skin type.
Consider implementing a gentle cleanser, toner, and moisturizer at minimum into your routine every day.
You can take your skin care routine a bit further and achieve highly coveted glowing skin. The Striped Bare Clear Skin Program is a full guidebook that reveals hacks on how to finally achieve clear skin. This guidebook is valued at $97.00 but is available for a short time practically for free.
9. Nightly Oil Your Body
Along with your face, the rest of your body deserves all the love and care you can give it.
This is an ancient Ayurveda practice that can help to balance and restore what I like to refer to as the largest organ in your body, your skin.
As you are preparing for bedtime, take a luxurious oil of your choice and slowly rub it in all over your arms, neck, shoulder, back, legs, etc.
As you rub it in, remind yourself that because you are a queen, your body deserves to be treated like one.
10. Luxury Lingerie Set
Having some gorgeous luxury lingerie on hand for a special occasion or for whenever you feel like being sexy can really boost how you feel about your body.
A Queen loves and adores the shape she is in and therefore she loves to adorn her body with beautiful lingerie to show off her natural curves and unique essence.
Lingerie shopping for something that is comfortable and sexy can be a challenge so I recommend the following brands.
Fluer of England for gorgeous lingerie in an array of sizes ( I am not sponsored by Fluer of England, just really love their lingerie!)
Bluebella for sexy lingerie pieces
Bras n Things for both functional and sexy pieces
11. Silk or Soft High Quality pajamas
Invest in a nice pair of well made silk or faux silk pajamas. Even if they are not actually silk, sliding into bed in pajamas made of a nice soft fabric against your skin sends you to sleep feeling like the juicy feminine Queen that you are.
12. Slow Morning
Be mindful of how you spend your mornings. Give your self enough time to where you can chew your breakfast slowly, meditate, journal and just really sink into being present in your body.
This practice helps you to get out of the trap of always rushing around and not spending enough time on your self. A Queen always takes her time to make sure she is well set, remember that.
13. Clean Environment
Be mindful of your environment and make an effort to keep it clean and well maintained.
Having a cluttered environment can lead to cluttered thoughts and emotions and every one in a while a good clearing is needed.
Work to level up the surroundings in your home little by little so you can feel like royalty. If that means getting rid of old outdated items that are taking up space, get rid of it and start fresh!
As always it may be hard at first to add all of these self care ideas in your daily routine. Play around with practicing a few self care ideas and then work your way down the list.
