We don't always put ourselves first. Instead, we look out for our families, our friends, our coworkers and all of the other people in our daily lives.
But September is Self-Care Awareness Month, and we're taking this time to remember how important it is to refuel our own batteries and treat ourselves to self-care on a regular basis.
There are different types of self-care. For some, taking the time to read a good book with a cup of coffee is the ultimate mental recharge. For others, treating yourself to an at-home spa night is the epitome of luxury. Maybe it's cooking up your favorite meal, lighting a candle and cuddling up under a cozy blanket for a movie night. Or maybe it's giving yourself the time to move your body and sweat out any extra stress with a workout at home.
Whatever your self-care routine is, remember to make it a priority and show yourself the love you deserve. If it means making yourself a self-care checklist to ensure you set aside the time, try that too.
Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite self-care products, from candles and bubble bath to hair masks, skin care, blankets, workout gear and more to help you unwind.
