The term “self-care” is everywhere these days, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The idea is to make sure to fill your own cup and that you are doing things for yourself. As women, we can’t lose sight of this. I know we love to do for others and I know much like me, darling, you are busy! So, are there quick ways for you to care for yourself and give yourself a respite to decompress while accomplishing a goal? And how can we accomplish self-care?
Personally, I like to take long showers and long walks. I enjoy taking America out around the town and coming home to make coffee and breakfast for myself and my Ultimate Concierge. That to me is self-care. However, self-care looks different for everyone.
There Are Simple Ways to Self-Care
Fortunately, I think the beauty industry has caught on and has created products that not only make us stop and relax, but are good for us too. Bath bombs with nutrients, aromatherapy shower steamers, lotions with relaxing essential oils, face masks that improve moisture or reduce oil all have those “self-care” properties while also taking care of something else. You can’t exactly run errands in a sheet mask! It forces you to sit down and think or read or watch a short television show while still accomplishing something else that is good for you. What is better than accomplishing two things at once?
So let’s talk about some quick ways to accomplish self-care for women over 50.
What’s more luxurious than a face mask? Many can add moisture and help clean your skin. Here are products to treat your face and yourself!

Tea is full of calming properties. Instead of reaching for a glass of wine, try a glass of tea instead. Make sure it’s caffeine-free so you don’t get jittery, and hop into a nice bath or watch a nice movie.
