Many of us are hard at work, whether we’re working from home, joining social justice events, and even navigating today’s climate. We must be gentle with ourselves throughout these unsettling times. A self care day can make a world of a difference.
Our homes have become our safe spaces away from the world’s troubles. Spending time indoors doesn’t mean we should neglect our well being. Creating the perfect at-home spa treatment day consists of exfoliating, body care, nail care, and facials. These five Black-owned wellness brands are just what you need for your next self care day.
