It’s no secret that “self-care” is currently having a major moment on social media. It’s almost impossible to scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing an influencer or celebrity preaching “self-care,” often attached to an #ad for a pricey meal delivery plan, vacation destination or spa service. Seriously, who thinks encouraging a “life-changing” facial at a trendy LA salon (with a hefty price tag of over $600) is self-care? Sounds more like a self-inflicted burden of debt.
If you’re a mere mortal, it’s a safe assumption that your bank account doesn't reflect the expendable income required to support a luxury lifestyle. Still, it doesn’t mean there aren’t awesome (and economical) ways to treat yourself to a little TLC.
