3 Self-Care Ideas for Valentine's Day Because You Should Love Yourself First

Posted on

Mood: In a committed relationship with myself.

Whether you’ve got a bae, or you’re more single than a unicycle this Valentine’s Day, we think the best way to spend Valentine’s Day is by practicing self-lurve. Because the wise words of RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” Here’s how…


  1. Clock off from the Interwebs

 If ever there were a day to take a break from social media, Valentine’s Day would be the one. In case you’re worried about missing anything, we can give you a quick rundown:

  • A bunch of sappy couple pics with lengthy captions
  • Lots of chocolate and love heart emojis
  • Someone holding an obnoxiously large sized bouquet of roses
  • A few token funny posts about being single
  • A whole lot of other stuff you’ve probably seen a zillion times

 Now you’re all caught up! So put that phone down and take a time out girl.


  1. Get all nature-y

Grab a friend and head out on a walk somewhere green. There’s something therapeutic about being in nature, plus more oxygen from trees = better breathing. See? Instant relaxation station.


  1. Bathroom pamper sesh

Is there any better feeling than the full shebang? We’re talking shower, exfoliate, shave, wash hair and emerge feeling as silky smooth as a newborn fresh out of the womb. But don’t let it stop there this V Day, lather yourself in moisturizer, slap on a facemask and kick back on the couch for a Gossip Girl binge sesh. Bliss.


Tip: not only do avocados make an excellent topping for toast, they’re also a great facemask. We love mashing one up with vitamin e oil for a hit of hydration.


Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Shoes are my bae,
And that love is true.
