Be Your Own Valentine! The Ultimate Self-Care Routine

We love Valentine’s Day because it’s the ultimate holiday for self-care! While we’re spending time with our loved ones and enjoying those champagne and candlelight dinners, it’s easy to forget to take care of our number one Valentine: ourselves. That’s why the Beauty Supply 123 team has laid out the ultimate self-care routine — perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any day you feel like you need a little TLC! 

Start with a warm bath. 

We can picture it now: soft bubbles, a glass of white wine, our favorite tunes or podcast playing from a speaker as we ease into that delightful warm water. Take it up a notch with a bath soak, like this Andrea Body Spa Anti-Stress Bath Soak, which is infused with chamomile and vitamin E for ultimate relaxation. Let the hot water soothe sore muscles after a long day. Breathe in, and say it with us: Ahhhh…

Exfoliate. 

Exfoliation isn’t just for our faces: dead skin and buildup from our everyday lives makes our skin rough and dry. You can use a salt or sugar scrub like this Body Buffer peppermint scrub, or simply lather up your favorite soap with an exfoliating tool like these FantaSea exfoliating gloves or this bristle brush from Kingsley. Exfoliating removes dead skin and other buildup, giving you a beautiful baseline to build healthy skin on. 

Lather and rinse.

It’s important to exfoliate before you use your cleaner because your regular skin cleaner will clear away all that gunk that comes to the surface after exfoliating. If you’ve already used a dedicated exfoliator, make sure you use a light, gentle cleanser like this olive oil infused body wash from CHI Naturals. Too much exfoliation can aggravate your skin, leading to unnecessary redness and breakouts. 

Try a soothing mask.

Next, take a few minutes to relax with a soothing face mask. Choose ingredients designed for relaxation, like the calming hemp oil you’ll find in Body Drench’s face mask collection. Close your eyes and drift away for a few minutes while the healing, moisturizing goodness sinks into your skin. Don’t forget to rinse your face after you use a face mask — or, if there is excess product on your skin once you’ve removed the mask, gently rub the product into your cheeks with soft circles. 

Moisturize. 

As a final treat to your skin, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Adding moisture back to your skin is one of the biggest steps of a self care routine that people forget to follow. After scrubbing away your skin’s natural oils, it’s critical to add back in that comforting, nourishing moisture. We like simple moisturizers like this skin-hydrating lotion from Satin or Miami Masks Anti-Aging Daily Defense Face and Body Lotion. For a little more flair, try something like this Tahitian Monoi Oil from Body Drench.

Don’t forget your feet! 

While you’re at it, don’t forget to pay special attention to your feet! Your feet take a beating each and every day and deserve a little TLC of their own. Exfoliate with a pumice bar or a foot file, then moisturize (never forget to moisturize!) with your favorite body lotion. For some extra locked-in moisture, apply a generous amount of lotion to your feet and then slip on a pair of Spa Sister Moisture Enhancing Socks overnight. You’ll be shocked at how soft and supple your feet feel in the morning! 

Get a good night’s sleep. 

Finally, tuck yourself in for the ultimate self-care treat: A good night’s sleep. There’s no better self-care routine for your skin, your energy levels, your mental health, or your total body wellness than healthy, restorative sleep. Want some tips for a great night’s sleep? Lower the temperature in your room, snuggle up in some cozy blankets and pillows, set up a sleep podcast or a white noise machine, and cut out as much light as possible. If your blackout curtains aren’t quite cutting it, try a sleep mask like this oh-so-adorable Counting Sheep sleep eye cover. And enjoy those forty winks you oh-so-deserve!


No matter what you’re doing for Valentine’s Day this year, we hope you take some well-deserved time for yourself. A self-care routine is an amazing way to show yourself some extra love and set you up for a restorative, productive spring ahead! For the best in self-care, hair, nail, and other beauty products, the catalog here at Beauty Supply 123 has all the answers. Happy Valentine’s Day from the Beauty Supply 123 team!
