Self Care When You Don’t Have Time For Self Care

This “self care” post was sponsored by Neutrogena as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. All opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Self care. That’s like a buzz word these days, right? I can’t scroll through Pinterest for longer than 38 seconds without seeing a post dedicated to teaching me how to take care of myself and up my self-care game. 

Despite the self-care craze, finding the time for self care is not easy. (And yes, I understand the irony of me saying this on the heels of a 3 day self-care vacation, but STILL. That was the exception, definitely not the rule.) 

If I’m going to be honest (and I am, because that how I roll around here), when I first accepted this collaboration, my idea was to share my love for taking bubble baths and using Neutrogena Rainbath, which I’ve used for years. As I prepared for the post, I thought about my last bubble bath. And then I thought some more. And more. Until I realized that I haven’t taken a bubble bath in…OVER A YEAR. 


Well, there goes that idea.

That’s when I realized that as a busy mama, self-care doesn’t look like lazy mornings and long bubble baths anymore. Gone are the days of weekly mani + pedis, regular root touch-ups and silky smooth legs. (Who’s got the time to shave? It’s almost winter, anyway.)

These days, little moments of self-care go a long way: Waking up 10 minutes before my kids so I can slam a cup of coffee while it’s STILL HOT. (Do you hear the angels singing??) Breaking out the good wine just because it’s Tuesday night and the baby was extra clingy today. Cozy socks. 

And, turning my shower into a mini pampering experience with Neutrogena Rainbath. It cleanses and conditions my skin without leaving behind a heavy, filmy residue like so many other body washes. It’s available in 5 scents: Original, Pear & Green Tea, Pomegranate, Ocean Mist and Fresh Plum. 

If you prefer a bath (teach me your ways), it doubles as a bubble bath. OR, if you shave your legs even in the winter (are you a unicorn?), you can use it as a shaving cream, too. 

Moral of the story? If you’re a busy mama who doesn’t have a whole lot of time for self care because you’re so busy taking care of everyone else, Neutrogena Rainbath is a must-have. Head to Walgreens or walgreens.com to pick up yours today. You won’t regret it. 

As always, thank you for stopping by! See you back here tomorrow…
