Do you get a little down around February 14? You should know that you’re not alone, but also know that it shouldn’t be this way. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be for couples, gifts, and fancy dinner reservations; it should be a celebration of all love, including loving yourself! This expression of affection starts with self-care and being positive and comfortable in your own skin.
Self-care, loosely defined, means taking care of yourself and feeling your best so you can be your best. A great start is with pampering yourself on Valentine’s Day!
Take Care Of Unwanted Hair
When practicing self-care, a great start is to accept the imperfections of the body, and accept that it’s okay to change what you’re uncomfortable with, too. It doesn’t have to be drastic, or painful, or involve radical transformation – you can feel so much better about your body and yourself with the tiniest of changes. Lasering off stubborn hairs, wherever they might be, is a very small thing to do, but it can really change how you see your body!
When tackling this, you should be comfortable. At Cabelo, we use the Soprano ICE hair removal device, a revolutionary laser hair removal technology used in spas around the world. It uses multiple laser wavelength settings to guarantee a speedy, painless hair removal experience. As we said, it’s a small change that can have a lasting impact on how you feel about your body!
Enhance Your Eyes
Confidence often starts with the eyes, and people spend so much time trying to enhance this confidence. Unfortunately, the eyes are where we have the most trouble applying and controlling our makeup. If you hate fighting with your mascara, eyeliner, or brow pencils, a few short treatments will save yourself the time and effort that goes into this part of the care routine!
Renew your confidence with semi-permanent lifts curls, tints, and eyebrow henna. The lift and curl work with your natural lashes to extend and define them, with results that last for weeks, even months! The trained professionals at Cabelo use the Elleebana Lash Lift system; the soothing treatment lasts no more than 20 minutes, and you’ll walk out with luscious lashes. The tinting process brings eye-popping colour, and the natural dyes of henna can sculpt and frame your face to perfection. When you look in the mirror after it’s all said and done, you’ll see the best possible you.
Relax This Valentine’s Day!
Self-care is taking care of yourself, for yourself. Taking care of the body is one important aspect of this; taking care of the mind is another! So do what you need to do to declutter your brain space: draw up a warm bath, put on your favourite music, pour a glass of wine… whatever helps you relax! It will help you focus on what’s important and approach upcoming challenges with renewed energy.
The way we talk about this holiday makes it seem like it should be all about the love of someone special in one’s life, but you are special! Loving ourselves makes it easier to give and show love to other people. So this Valentine’s Day, focus on making yourself happier, healthier, and more in-control over yourself!
