Every night before going to bed, I spend a few minutes in the bathroom washing my face, brushing my teeth, and applying various moisturizers, face masks, and serums. While some may call it frivolous, it's actually one of the few times throughout the day that I spend totally alone in the quiet and has become one of my most beloved and calming rituals. An act of self-care like spending some time taking care of your face can be comforting, soothing, and can help someone reduce stress. If you're interested in incorporating skincare into your daily routine, here are some options for you to try!
