Treat Yo’ Self! Michigan-Made Products Can Help

By: Amber Ogden | December 13, 2017

With the stress of the holidays among us, it is easy for us to become consumed with doing for others around the clock. But it is imperative that self care is implemented. We get so busy in our day to day, that we forget about ourselves and the need to recharge our own batteries. With cold temperatures, snow and the potential for winter blues to set in, it’s important to adhere to a self- care plan. Get a massage, grab a good book, slather on some smell-good body butter, or just treat yourself to a sweet treat like cookie dough. Come on really, who doesn’t like cookie dough?!

8am
Wake your winter skin up with an organic facial from  Bee’s Beauty Bar and Spa. All facials are created with the customer in mind as they are perfectly customized to your skin type. 12 Days of Christmas is also the the perfect way to gift yourself with one day promotions, giveaways and favorite beauty products.

It’s never too early to shop. So why not stop at Bath Savvy for some treats for your relaxing night time routine?! Who doesn’t want to smell like vanilla cupcakes all the time? I would love that!  So, pick up some Vanilla Cupcake Body Butter. But before that you’ll need to take a  relaxing bath. Cleanse and wake up dead winter skin with an activated charcoal bath bomb. The winter winds can be wicked while you are out and about, but Vegan Lip Butter will smoothly take care of all your cracks and wind burn from the mean winter winds.

It’s Lunch Time. 7 Greens Detroit Salad Company is the perfect healthy choice. In self care, it’s important to get your greens in. 7 Greens makes sure that all salads are fresh to order. There are a plethora of veggies to choose from like Kale You Later or Woodward Cruise. Tired of salads? That’s ok, fill up on a Popeye Bowl full of brown rice, feta and grilled chicken.

Fill your belly with a tasty, fresh black bean burger from Woodbridge Pub or maybe a midwest grass-fed angus beef burger instead. Everything is fresh to order for the customers. There are healthier options too, such as the Cherry Chicken Salad with chicken breast, dried cherries, mixed greens, goat cheese, walnuts and drizzled cherry vinaigrette.

Grab a candle from Lavish by Nature to set your relaxing evening ambiance. If you can’t decide which to go with, their scented candle “Purple Haze” will melt you right into your bubble bath.
