Setting Self Care Goals for the New Year

I recently saw a quote that said “What if the only resolution you made for the New Year is to love yourself more?” This year, I totally agree. In years past I’ve either set no New Year resolutions at all. Or I had some pretty lame ones. A recently memory hop on Facebook reminded me that I once made a resolution to stop calling boys in their twenties twelve when they’d hit on me in social settings. While at the time I felt like that was me trying to be a kinder person to strangers, it actually taught me a very important lesson. Changing bad habits is hard. However, it’s also totally worth it.

So this year, I’m going into the New Year with resolutions to break my most unhealthy habits. In fact, these goals are so important to me that I started them a full two weeks early. 

Between losing my grandmother earlier this year when her organs started shutting down due to heart failure, and my dad undergoing three heart surgeries for blocked arteries, heart health has moved to the top of my list for health priorities. This means not just cutting sugar, but also other foods that cause inflammation including red meat, chicken and pork. I also gave up alcohol. (All of these things support not just heart health, but also help reduce the occurence of my fibromyalgia flare ups.)

Setting Self Care Goals for the New Year

I’d been heading in the direction of giving up these things since the end of summer. By the time December hit, I’d lost 20 lbs. and gone down two pants sizes. Not only do I look better, but I FEEL better. So I’ve also added on push ups (I’m up to sets of six toe push ups followed by twelve knee push ups) to my weekly routine for strength, and I’m trying to stay more active. Sometimes this just means lots of dancing. Other days it’s simply getting out and walking. I can’t wait for the weather to take a turn though, because I’m so ready to start hiking again. I feel strong and healthy. And my mental health, along with my physical health, has improved as well. So I really feel like I have all over body wellness. 

Some of the most important things I’ve learned as I struggled to overcome PTSD and depression aren’t just related to diet and exercise however. They are also about mindset. These accomplishments include:

  • Saying no and not feeling guilty about it.
  • Setting boundaries and walking away from drama as well as toxic people and relationships.
  • Learning to let go of my anger.
  • Finding healthy ways to reduce stress.
  • Accepting life as life happens so I’m better able to adapt to change. (A must as a blogger as algorithms are constantly changing!)
  • Journaling to help break bad habits.
  • Accepting the limitations of my body and not pushing myself to do more to my own detriment.

What’s great about all of these things is that they all relate back to self care. Thus emphasizing the importance it plays in our daily lives. It’s one of the reasons why I created a free printable self care journal for you (my lovely readers!) to use in the New Year.

Of course, outwardly caring for bodies is also an important part of self care. It’s why I included printable skin care and face mask recipe cards as part of my printable self care journal. So you can use the following homemade lip scrub recipe as one of your journal recipes. Or customize it to make it your own!

Summer Beauty Recipe Inspiration

I grew up on trips to Myrtle beach every summer until I was sixteen. Most of those years, we saved money by camping out in a campground. Not only did it give me a greater appreciation for the outdoors, I also learned that you should ALWAYS wear flip flops when using a campground shower. (Thanks, Mom!)

One of my favorite things about staying on a beach campground was the lack of hotels. Sure, there were lots of people, but there were no hotels to mar the skyline. Just beach and plants and trees. It was easy to make daily discoveries of beautiful shells, sand dollars, tiny crabs and clams in the sand.

Much like my early adventures in a hometown creek that fed into our river, I always tried to take at least one of my live discoveries home with me. While at home, I tried to create a habitat for crawdads I caught. At the beach, I took baby clams and other small (yet to be identified) creatures home in a bucket of sand and water.

Being that Myrtle Beach is a good 8-9 hour drive from my home in Virginia, these tiny sea creatures never managed to survive the trip. However that didn’t stop me from trying. Being the stubborn girl that I was (and still am apparently) I tried again year after year, until the camping trips ended. My parents, probably in their wisdom to never argue with a strong willed little girl over something so simple, never protested. Although I’m not sure how they DIDN’T looking back. An eight hour drive in an old school Dodge van with zero air conditioning and sea water left quite the lingering aroma.

Making Beach Themed Seashell Soaps

My DIY seashell soaps are a nod to those carefree summer beach trips of days past. They are reminiscent of time spent outdoors in the sun and sand. Long days hunting for seashells and mysterious creatures hidden just under the sand as the waves roll in and onto the beach.

What makes this summer beauty soap project so easy?

Made using a melt and pour soap base, this soap making tutorial incorporates pre-made soap embeds into the recipe. This eliminates some of the challenges that come with working with embeds as a beginning soapmaker. It also saves you money, as you’ll only need one soap making mold for this soap tutorial. This helps reduce the otherwise more expensive costs of investing in multiple soap making molds. There’s also no need to work with lye. So if you’re still not ready to make cold process soap, then this soap making project is perfect for you!

Beautiful melt and pour seashell soap embeds for making creative DIY beach soaps for summer.

Save on materials & time by purchasing pre-made elements for your summer beauty recipes.

While you can make your own melt and pour soap embeds for my beach soaps, this can be challenging and time consuming. Therefore I chose to use pre-made seashell soap embeds that I purchased from a fellow soapmaker. I used seashell soap embeds that I purchased from Spruce Mountain Soap to make this soap making project both simpler and faster.

My seashell soap is the perfect summer beauty recipe for cleansing your skin on hot summer days. Made with a blend of fresh litsea cubeba and peppermint essentials oils, these fun beach inspired soaps help to brighten and energize dull skin.

Why Use a Lip Scrub with Sugar?

Believe it or not, your summer skin care routine can have a lot in common with your winter skin routine. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, then you know you need to drink more water and moisturize skin. The same can be said for your lips! The sun, like dry winter air, can dry out your lips and cause chapping. A homemade lip scrub with sugar, like my pink lemonade lip scrub, is an easy natural solution to remedy dry or chapped lips from overexposure to the sun.

Using a homemade lip scrub with sugar not only exfoliates your lips to slough off dead skin cells, it also hydrates lips to help replenish lost moisture. Therefore, with regular use, my pink lemonade lip scrub with sugar will make your lips appear softer, more supple and healthy.

(You can find the DIY lip scrub and cranberry body butter recipe below.)

Pistachio Macaron Body Butter Recipe for natural winter skin care.

I was especially excited to try Wholesale Supplies Plus’ cranberry body butter that comes with this kit as to contains not only a blend of some of my favorite ingredients – shea butter and jojoba oil, but it also contains Cranberry Fruit which is packed with antioxidants. However, as the cranberry body butter – and the resulting products this kit creates – are unscented, I added a few extras to make it a little more fun.

You can feel free to customize your lip scrubs and butters with your favorite scents and flavors or leave the rich and luxurious cranberry butter fragrance free to accommodate those who may have allergies.

To make your own cranberry DIY lip scrubs and body butters, follow the lip scrub and body butter recipes and instructions below. Or visit Wholesale Supplies Plus’ Lotion and Skin Care Library for the original version of the recipe.

Winter beauty tips and natural winter skin care recipes: DIY lip scrub and homemade body butter recipe to exfoliate and moisturize skin this winter for natural beauty.

DIY Lip Scrub (And Body Butter Recipe)

Ingredients:

1 lb. Crafter’s Choice™ Cranberry Butter Blend
1.5 oz. white cane sugar
4 ml flavor oil of choice (optional)
.3 oz. fragrance oil of choice (optional)

(Or buy the kit here.)

Instructions for Making the DIY Lip Scrub:

You’ll need a few tools and materials to make this DIY lip scrub and body butter. To get started you will need a digital kitchen scale, a microwave, ten oval lip balm tubes, 5-6 3 oz. low profile jars with lids, a few plastic droppers, spoons for mixing and a beaker or glass pyrex measuring cup.

How to Make a Natural Cranberry Lip Scrub - Simple Beauty DIY

I really love the little beaker that comes with this kit as it makes pouring lip balms as well as DIY lip scrubs super easy and mess free.

To get started, weigh out 1.25 oz. of the cranberry body butter into the beaker, then melt in the microwave. (It took about 50 seconds for my batch to melt.)

Once the cranberry body butter blend melts, measure out three Tablespoons (approximately 1.5 oz.) of white cane sugar and stir into the melted butter. (If you want to use a flavor oil for your DIY lip scrub like I did, use a plastic pipette or dropper to measure out up to 4 ml of flavor oil and stir into the mixture. I used 2 ml of a chocolate flavor oil and 2 ml of a strawberry flavor oil to make a chocolate strawberry DIY lip scrub!)

Alternately if you prefer a lip balm rather than a scrub, simply omit the sugar.

This plastic beaker makes pouring lip balms a snap!

Allow the mixture to set for several minutes and thicken slightly then stir again to distribute the sugar evenly through the melted butter. Then slowly pour the mixture for your DIY lip scrubs into each of your lip balm tubes.

To prevent air bubbles, lightly tap each lip balm tube lightly halfway through then fill each tube with the remaining mixture.

Strawberry Chocolate DIY Lip Scrub

Once your DIY lip scrubs have completely cooled, simply cap and label.

For homemade gifts I thought these looked super cute decorated with washi tape and little labels that I made in Open Office.

To use your DIY lip scrub, gently rub the scrub over lips to help remove dead skin cells, then rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite lip balm. (If you added a flavor oil try not to eat it!)

DIY Homemade Cranberry Body Butter Recipe

How to Make the Body Butter Recipe:

To make your homemade body butters place the remaining cranberry butter into a large glass pyrex measuring cup or bowl. Melt in the microwave until almost fully melted.

Remove the melted cranberry body butter blend, then stir to complete the process. (This will help to prevent the cranberry fruit from settling to the bottom.)

I wanted to scent my body butter, so I also stirred in .3 oz. (by weight) of Pistachio Macaron Fragrance Oil.

Once you’ve mixed in your fragrance, if desired, pour into your low profile jars. (The kit recommended filling five jars evenly with product, however, I found I had enough to actually fill six.)

Allow to cool, then screw on the lid and label. Again, washi tape is a simple and easy choice for decorating your jars!
