Relax, R&R Style

It usually seems quite impossible to find relaxation within your life when there are so many responsibilities coming your way; paying bills, working 9 - 5, meeting unrealistic deadlines, taking online classes, paying bills (again) and other life challenges.

We all have 24hours in a day, but it’s often hard to schedule valuable “me time”. Why aren’t leave periods from work ever enough?

Well… you can make time - if you are intentional about it.

As everyone is different, figuring out what works for you is essential and there are different ways to have “self-care time” even within the chaos of everyday life.

So, why not have a...

Skin care routine

As the mind gets stressed, so does the body and skin - dull outlook, dark under eye and fine lines on the forehead are common. It is important that everyone indulges in some form of skin care routine as a form of self-care and relaxation. This doesn’t have to be every day; we recommend that you make time for your full skincare routine during the weekend, especially on Sundays - you can even share a post on the gram with #SelfCareSunday -  tag us @randrluxury, we would love to see it :)

We have a range of plant powered products to help you with your routine. If you are aware of the benefits plant powered products have on the skin, then you need to start shopping!

Or you could try a…

Once in a while, take some time to unwind in a bubble bath, pour yourself a drink and CHILL. This gives you time to concentrate on YOURSELF. Even if it’s for 15 minutes, it’s enough YOU time which can last for the entire day. Add a few drops of Lemongrass Shea Oil in your bath, to give yourself a refreshing feel and aromatherapy benefits (plus…this will leave your skin super soft too).

Better yet, why don’t you...

Unplug from socials

Many of us are often consumed and overwhelmed with the pressures of social media. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking a break from these platforms. UNPLUG yourself from the world, create your own sanctuary; light up a candle while you read a book, listen to uplifting music, watch an old movie or anything that helps you to relax.

Sometimes, all you need is to pause and catch a break!
