My personal fave
This little baby is one of my all-time favorite self-care products for confidence building (when I’m feeling achy, tense and stressed and really need an extra push)! I don’t think I go more than a couple of days without using it (it’s that good!).
It can be used everywhere. I’ve used it on my shoulders, mid and lower back. I’ve even used it on my neck. The attached strap makes it easy to position it anywhere you’d like and the motion reverse control is a wonderful feature not all back massagers have. Plug it in, sit back and relax with 3 adjustable speeds.
WHY THIS LIST?
I posted recently about using the strategy of repetition to build foolproof confidence, and thought a follow-up about self-reward was important.
Because it shouldn’t be a one-time thing.
Get into the habit – the repetition – of rewarding yourself for your achievements big and small.
(I would actually say we should all be rewarding ourselves for the small wins more often because they’re the ones we usually overlook.)
To help make it easy to reward yourself for your amazing awesomeness, I want to share with you 9 of the best, most effective self-care products for confidence that I know of and use that you can use to reward yourself and boost your confidence – right now.
SELF-CARE PRODUCTS FOR CONFIDENCE #1: REWARD YOUR EYES
Our eyes tell us (and the world) a lot about how we feel, so it’s important to take care of them because feeling good about ourselves is a proven confidence-builder.
A great way to give yourself a boost in this area is by taking care of the skin around your eyes.
Soothing eye products do a big job on one of the most delicate parts of our bodies.
They nourish and hydrate, which is critical for the under-eye area where the skin is more sensitive because there aren’t as many oil glands or collagen as other areas of your skin.
Providing benefits like reducing puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, under-eye patches are extremely popular among self-care products for confidence – for great reasons.
The Dermora 24K Gold Eye Mask – packaged in convenient travel-sized packs – these under-eye patches are a terrific way to give your eyes the spa treatment at home or on the go.
Sit or lie back in your favorite chair (they may slide off otherwise) and put them right under your eyes. There’s no sticky adhesive to pull at your delicate skin, and you can feel a cooling while they go to work. It feels seriously good. After just 20 minutes, your eyes will begin thanking you for this self-care reward.
Eye creams are another great self-reward option for anyone looking to celebrate themselves with a little extra pampering.
I’m in my 50s, so the added features, such as SPF and anti-aging properties, RoC Retinol Correxion Under Eye Cream make it a wonderful option to combat puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles and more (at my age or any age).
Formulated in concentrations designed for fast absorption, serums are another great self-care option.
TruSkin Vitamin C Serum is a hugely popular option with collagen-boosting, skin-brightening properties beneficial for all skin tones and conditions.
And what I love is that serums can be used by themselves or with creams and under-eye patches. Combos for the win.
SELF-CARE PRODUCTS FOR CONFIDENCE #2: REWARD YOUR FEET
Our feet are the foundation of our entire body, giving us the support and balance we need for posture, movement and general well-being.
When our feet are tired – we are tired. When they feel good, we feel good. And since we know that feeling good physical helps us feel better mentally, giving our feet a little extra TLC is a smart move all around. And using any – or all – of these self-care products for confidence is a boss move any day.
Callouses, rough patches and dry areas don’t just make our feet feel bad to the touch – they affect how our feet feel in socks, shoes, slippers and walking around in general.
Foot peel masks have gained popularity in recent years because they tackle several problems at once. Plus, it can be oddly satisfying to watch the progression of the peel working over the week or so it takes to run its cycle.
Put on the special Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel booties and sit back for an hour while 16 natural extracts go to work. Over the next week, dead skin and callouses will peel away revealing the soft, smooth skin. This is one of my all-time favorite self-care purchases and my absolute favorite foot peel. I’ve even given tot to people as gifts.
2. Foot Baths
A good soak is like a vacation for your feet. Add acupressure massage points, vibration and heat and you may never want to take your feet out of your foot bath (at least that’s how I feel).
The Zircon 5-in-1 Foot Spa puts paradise one step closer by including all of the above plus Tea Tree oil and Epsom Salt, which are great for easing muscle pains and cramps, treating toenail fungus (because hey, it happens) and keeping your tootsies in top shape.
I literally feel like a new person after every foot bath I do.
3. Foot Creams
Now that you’ve treated your feet to a rejuvenating foot bath and peel, reward yourself even more with a great foot cream to help keep them feeling and looking amazing even longer.
O’Keeffes for Healthy Feet Foot Cream is a fan favorite in this area. This fast-acting foot cream is famous for being odorless and extra-moisturizing with increased levels of allantoin (renowned for its ability to hydrate skin).
It’s not greasy like some creams, so you can use it by itself or under socks.
SELF-CARE PRODUCTS FOR CONFIDENCE #3: REWARD YOUR BACK
Where your eyes are a window and your feet are a foundation, your back is what gives your entire body structure and support.
When our back hurts, it limits what we’re able to do, like social activities, spending time with people, even sitting comfortably. When we’re not able to do things we enjoy, that impacts how we feel about ourselves and can damage our self-confidence.
Back health is a great reward for everyone.
Talk about instant relief. Back stretchers work wonders without the wait or driving to the doctor’s office or sitting in the lobby until it’s your turn. It’s always your turn when you can do it at home.
Back stretchers come in many variations and all have immediate benefit for relaxing tense muscles, increasing blood flow and helping to flush away stored lactic acid, a major cause of muscle fatigue and soreness.
The 321 Strong Foam Roller is a great way to get started on back stretching because it’s lightweight but features 3D massage zones that heel like it does when a physical therapist is working with you. Plus, it comes in a bunch of cool colors and patterns, so what’s not to love, right?
This is gaining popularity for a great reason – it works.
Red light therapy is getting exposure to low levels of red or near-infrared light. Red light is similar to infrared, but we can see it and our bodies feel it as heat. Our cells soak it up, converting it to energy which helps speed repair and muscle recovery.
Save yourself time and money from expensive trips to spas and salons with the Lifepro Red Light Therapy Belt, which is lightweight and portable so you can take it anywhere. Use this belt to position the red light therapy LED strings right where you need them to experience self-care technology in action.
Relieve muscle soreness and tension with acupressure, massage and heat. This works for all muscle groups throughout your body and is especially rewarding everywhere on the back.
The Papillon Back Massager with Heat can be used everywhere. I’ve used it on my shoulders, mid and lower back. I’ve even used it on my neck. The attached strap makes it easy to position it anywhere you’d like and the motion reverse control is a wonderful feature not all back massagers have. Plug it in, sit back and relax with 3 adjustable speeds.
Each of these make it easy to put self-reward (and confidence building) on repeat!
