While the holidays are my favorite time of year, I’m not going to lie, my mental and physical well-being takes a hit. For bloggers, Q4 is our busiest season. I spend hours upon hours creating holiday content and am up at all hours of the night working on a blog and social posts.
Even getting through the Thanksgiving weekend was a little rough. At one point, my eyes got all swollen and puffy from some sort of allergic reaction to makeup and I slept for 12 hours Saturday night.
What I’m trying to say is the time of year, it’s more important than ever to practice self-care. Today I’m going to share a few of my favorite tips and tricks with you.

1.Get plenty of sleep. Yes, the presents need wrapping, the pie baked and that last Instagram post posted. But all of that can wait until tomorrow. If your body wears down and you get sick, you’ll be of no help to anyone.
2. Take one hour each week and do something for yourself. Go get a manicure, splurge on a massage, unplug and take a bubble bath, take a yoga class. Just one thing for a whole 60 minutes that makes you happy.
3. Pamper your skin. Skincare is so important during the holidays, I head to my local CVS once a month to stock up on skincare essentials. I love shopping at CVS because not only is it a convenient beauty destination but CVS is also curating a destination where beauty and self-expression are always close to home. They also carry all my favorite products!
My favorite skin care products? The Aveeno Maxglow No Mess Sleep Mask and Aveeno Positively Radiant Micellar Gel Cleanser.
Let’s start with the Maxglow No Mess Sleep Mask.
This mask is a part of the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® collection to help give skin a lit-from-within glow. This smoothing and brightening face mask gently exfoliates and helps lift away dull, tired skin. Just what you need during the holidays! The mask had a paddle included so that your hands stay clean for an easy, mess-free application. Peel off the face mask to reveal smoother looking skin with a more even tone and texture! I love when a skin mask is easy and no mess!
Next is the Positively Radiant Micellar Gel Cleanser that is also a part of the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® collection to help give skin a lit-from-within glow. Who doesn’t want to glow?! This gel facial cleanser is from the brand that has been dermatologist-recommended for over 65 years. With moisture-rich soy and kiwi complex, it helps skin feel hydrated, soft and supple.
The AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Collection is designed to enhance your natural radiance and give you a lit-from-within glow. Each soy-enriched product targets tone and texture. I’m more prone to breakouts and dry skin during the holidays, so these two products keep my skin clear and hydrated and leave me with a glowy, dewy complexion.
4. Drink water. This applies to anything in life, but staying hydrated is a must during the holidays. I always have a water bottle with me and when I’m out I always ask for a water.
5. Remember to breathe and have fun! The holidays are stressful and a lot for some but they fly by in the blink of an eye. When you feel stressed, just remember to breathe. This time of year isn’t about the events, presents and all the stuff. It’s about celebrating and being with loved ones, so unplug and have some fun!
