Self-care Sundays are a great way to make taking care of yourself a regular part of your routine. I carve out some time every Sunday for myself, and it's made a huge difference in my life.
So, I'm encouraging everyone else to make self-care Sundays a part of their lives, too.
If you're like me, you spend most of your time caring for other people. I'm a daughter, a mom to a human and my fur babies, a wife, and a full-time blogger. Those are just a few of the hats I wear, and with those hats come a lot of plates to spin. If I'm not diligent about caring for myself, everything falls apart.
Ideas to Make Amazing Self-Care Sunday
Self-care is an integral part of our physical, mental, and emotional well-being, so if you're burning your candle at both ends, running on fumes, or generally a walking cliche of doing too much for everyone else and not enough for yourself, this is the post for you. I have some amazing ideas here that will help you.
I say it's time to give yourself the gift of self-care this year. All that new year, new you talk we hear? That starts now, and it starts with these ideas!
Franz Skincare’s Jet Plus Microcurrent Facial Dual Mask
A good mask is always a great addition to any self-care routine, and the Jet Plus Microcurrent Facial Dual Mask is a great one.
This lightweight, fast-absorbing microcurrent facial mask can be used as a makeup primer or as a powerful hydration boost any time of day.
Its Tissue X microcurrent technology is proven to tighten and tone skin while reducing puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles and decreasing acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and redness.
Renew Line from MyCHELLE Dermaceuticals
The Renew Line from MyCHELLE Dermaceuticals features products packed with Retinol to help leave skin healthy, youthful, and glowing. I love this line because it's effective, affordable, and has zero toxic ingredients.

Unbound Glo Candles
Unbound Glo Candles candles help create a relaxing environment for your self-care Sundays. They're cruelty-free and eco-friendly, and they come with a QR code that links to a curated Spotify playlist to help you relax even more.
These candles feature feel-good, mood-boosting fragrances that help create the perfect atmosphere for your mood. It's also a woman-owned small business, which I love!
You can even wash and return the empty jar, and you'll get a 15% discount on your next order.
To decompress and foster your creativity at the same time, you can't beat the Original Buddha Board. It's inspired by the Zen idea of living in the moment, and the kit includes a classic drawing board that uses only water.
Draw or doodle while you relax. You can enjoy your creations in the moment, and they fade away as the water dries, freeing you up to make more artistic creations later.
The standard Buddha Board kit includes:
- 12" Buddha Board Canvas
- Waterproof stand with water reservoir and grooves to hold the brush and canvas.
- Premium bamboo paintbrush with thick, ultra-soft bristles.
You can also get the Mini Buddha Art Set featuring a 5" square portable Buddha Board that folds into its own small easel stand, a small water trough, and a small paint brush.
PJ’s Soaps & Bombs
For those of you who love long luxurious baths to help you decompress and take a little me time, PJ's Soaps & Bombs is the way to go.
Their unique aromatherapy bath products include shower steamers, bath bombs, oatmeal bath powder, and various soaps and lotions.
These are small-batch products made with simple, cruelty-free ingredients by a husband and wife team in their kitchen. I think that's really cool!

Malkia Essentials Vegan Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub
To pamper your skin, try Malkia Essentials Vegan Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub. This vegan scrub always makes my skin feel soft and smooth. It's like a mini spa treatment at home.
Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil help reduce dark marks on the skin and uneven skin tone, and they help soothe eczema. It also hydrates dry skin while exfoliating and nourishing with vitamin E oil.
On top of being environmentally and animal-friendly and nourishing, this stuff is just plain fun because it smells like pink lemonade!
