Warmer weather is coming! That means more plans , community events, family BBQs and more to be added onto your already overflowing to-do list. As much as you want to do everything, it is important to practice self care. Even when you think you’re having fun, you can still become burned out.  So what are some self care must-haves that you should buy? Let’s take a look! 

1. A Good Reusable Water Bottle 

The best way to take care of yourself is to stay hydrated. Especially during these summer months, you have to replace all of the sweating you are doing! Here are my top 3: 

  1. Buzio Insulated Water Bottle
  2. Hydracy with Time Marker
  3. Brita Stainless Steel Filter Bottle

2. Portable Smoothie Maker

This is something that I learned about through Tiktok! This portable smoothie maker can make smoothies, protein shakes, milkshakes and more. For under $30, I think this is a great appliance to own and also a great way to take care of yourself. Also, this can take meal prepping to an entire new level! 

3. Sunscreen

Since there is going to be more time outside, Sunscreen is so important to add into your daily skin care routine. It’s also important to find a product that does not contain harmful ingredients and does not test on animals. Here are some options: 

  1. Blue Lizard Sensitive Sunscreen
  2. Cerave AM Face Moisturizer with Sunscreen 
  3. Sun Bum Suncreen Spray

4. A New Book

Whether you like to read on your phone, tablet, or print—reading is so good for your overall health. Real Simple stated: “One 2009 study by Sussex University researchers showed that reading may reduce stress by as much as 68 percent. “It really doesn’t matter what book you read, by losing yourself in a thoroughly engrossing book you can escape from the worries and stresses of the everyday world and spend a while exploring the domain of the author’s imagination,” cognitive neuropsychologist David Lewis​ told The Telegraph.” All of the reasons to support your favorite authors, local bookstores, and more!

5. Ice Roller 

If you want to cool down, relieve puffiness in your face, or soothe the pain from your headache then an ice roller should definitely be incorporated into your self care routine! This Escora ice roller is just under $20 and has amazing reviews.

6. Mud Mask 

Mud masks are known to be great for antibacterial benefits, exfoliation, and removing excess oil on the skin. This Dead Sea Mud Mask is for the body and the skin and is cruelty free! You could even use your ice roller afterwards for extra benefits to your skin.
