As the mornings and evenings are getting darker earlier, I find it harder to get up to go to work because I basically get up and it's dark, then I'm inside for 13 hours and then when I finish it's dark again. So I find that it's so important to actively take more time out in my days to practise some self care and I thought I'd show you some great new products I've been using from Douvall's.

Douvall's is a leading argan oil brand that features natural skincare, hair care, makeup, and wellness range. It was created by a mother-daughter team, Alicia and Georgia Douvall who created the brand after discovering the phenomenal benefits of argan oil. Their products are designed to not only be multi-tasking but also be packed with naturally derived ingredients that really work for your skin, are organic, and eco friendly. Not only do Douvall's create amazing products for you, they're also a very eco-conscious company. They're committed to giving back to the planet and the community, working with so many different charities including The Haven and a women's cooperative. 

Self Care Routine
Working for 13 hours a day and not seeing any sunlight at this time of year can really give you a knock and can actually affect your mental health so it's so important to actively been adding moments of self care into your day. The lovely Georgia and Alicia kindly sent me a box of their argan oil goodies to add into my self care routine and see how I find them. 

At this time of year, my skin usually takes a hit and becomes really dry especially with wearing face masks for so long at work so the Hydrating Argan cream cleanser couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I've been using this cleanser morning and night, either as the first or second step in my double cleanse routine and in either step it works great. It has tackled even my most stubborn mascara without stinging my eyes or irritating my sensitive skin. This Hydrating Argan cream cleanser has such a relaxing scent so I love scooping a small amount out (with the bamboo spatula that comes included!), warm it between my fingers then massaging it into my skin. I take the time massaging the cleanser into my skin to either reflect on whats happened during my day or to centre myself and focus on what I need to get done for the day/week before washing it off with the 100% organic muslim cloth. 

To compliment the cream cleanser, I've been adding in the Organic Argan Oil moisturiser into my morning and evening skincare as my serum and I'm so impressed. This moisturiser literally has no scent to it so it's perfect for even the most sensitive skin. I've really been loving popping the moisturiser on and massaging it into my skin with a jade roller (usually while listening to a podcast) and it's honestly so nice to take that time to myself during a busy day. I have noticed that taking the time out does help me to quiet my anxious mind more easily cause I can focus on applying my skincare and listening to a podcast, it's become my new routine. I am all about multi-tasking makeup products, especially on the days that I have more minimal makeup/skincare only days. These Argan Lip & Cheek Colour Oils are amazing for this, they have six different shades to choose from and they can literally be used for anything, hydrating lip tint, a cream blush, as a wash of colour on your eyes. I've really been loving using them as hydrating lip tints and I've already got my eyes on a couple of the other shades.

Something I'm really bad at doing is moisturising my body after a shower/bath, usually I leave it too late and just want to get straight into my pjs and crawl into bed. Over the past couple of weeks I've been trying to make every shower a pamper, rather than just showering to get clean and I've really been loving applying the Kelp & Pink Grapefruit body butter which is such a thick, luxurious and nourishing moisturiser with an amazing refreshing scent (perfect for when you just can't get going in the morning!), I really want to try the lavender version of this body butter cause I think that would be amazing to use before bed to help you start winding down and relaxing! If you look at getting anything from this blog post about Douvall's products, please let it be the Argan Multi Balm. I have been obsessed with this balm since the package arrived at my door. This balm can be used absolutely anywhere on your body and is packed with argan, hemp, rosehip, almond, and cocoa butter to help provide intense hydration to any dry or rough patches on your skin. I need to invest in the more purse friendly size because this has been my go-to to apply to my lips, cuticles, as well as dry patches on my hands. I really like that the Multi Balm doesn't leave you feeling greasy so it's perfect for using at work cause I can apply it where needed and then still go about my jobs at work.

How do you practise self care?
