Winter Self-Care Rituals

Winter Self-Care Rituals - C & Co.®

Winter evenings are designed for lounging at home with family as well as making time for yourself after work.

One of my favorite weekly routines is a foot soak and scrub followed by an intense hydrator and cotton socks. Each week I pencil in self care time and spend 15 minutes giving back to my body for all that it does.

I start this ritual by soaking my feet in a warm basin of Herbal Soaking Salts and Revive Bath Oil for 10 minutes. The organic arnica montana pairs well with organic chamomile & calendula to soothe sore muscles, skin irritations and inflammation.

After soaking, I will then exfoliate each foot and calf with my favorite sugar scrub. I like to dispense just a few spoonfuls into a dish and apply to wet skin working the exfoliant in for a few minutes until the mixture turns into a softer consistency. Because sugar breaks down into glycolic acid, if you leave this mixture on feet for a minute or two, it will provide a plant-based chemical peel to gently remove excess dead skin cells, leaving your skin super soft.

I then re-soak my feet in the herbaceous soaking salts for another minute making sure to rinse the exfoliant from my lower legs and feet.

After rinsing, I dry each leg and foot thoroughly followed by a layer of our intensely hydrating Bergamot & Lavender Body Balm and top it off with cotton socks for the most loved and refreshed feeling.

I hope that you adore my weekly ritual, wishing you a happy January!
