What Comes First Self-love or Self-care?

Leading up to our taking part in Nitika Chopra's upcoming Summer Self-Love Celebration event, we invited the Talk Show Host, Beauty & Lifestyle Expert, Self Love Guru, and self proclaimed Spicy Indian Woman slash Soul Sister to write a guest blog post for Sonäge readers. Below she opens up about her own journey towards self-love (hint: it started with self-care) and even dishes on her current favorite product from our offerings.

I believe self-care comes first. In fact, I believe self-care allows you to access self-love. This was something I discovered when I was at the lowest points in my life suffering from psoriasis and arthritis. When life felt really bleak and any possibility felt far away, something in my heart told me to pick one way to nurture myself and my body.

So I began exploring different ways to do that through skincare. Soothing my sore skin with natural products and loving my fragile body through long baths. I would use lotion, oils, and the power of intention to appreciate and care for my body more deeply.

Ever since then, I’ve cultivated a love for myself that I never thought possible. And skincare is something that I’m completely obsessed with as not just a pleasure, but an absolute necessity on my journey.

So when I was recently invited to Sonäge’s Beauty of Balance event in New York City, I knew I had to attend and explore their products. Let me tell - you this company’s message is completely heart-centered and honest, and I’m so excited that they are also dedicated to the Self-Care Revolution.

Sonäge is committed to providing customers with the safest, most environmentally friendly, natural, non-toxic, and highly-effective products on the market--they’ve even coined the term “The New Natural” to showcase their level of care. They’ve balanced the very best in research and skincare science with the most carefully curated natural ingredients.

Self-care isn’t just skin deep, it’s an important part of living a more conscious, full, and balanced life. Women want, deserve, and need to take a few minutes out of their busy days to create beauty and self-care rituals that can reinvigorate, renew, and refresh us. Sonäge products deliver the same healing and relaxing aromatherapy and the same inspired, energizing pampering you’ll find in the best salons and spas.

Right now, I’m in love with their face exfoliator and have a few more of their amazing products ready for testing out in my skin care routine. If you’re feeling drawn to this amazing brand and want to practice more self-care yourself, I highly recommend getting yourself something special. Make time for self-care and self-love and encourage the women around you to do the same. 

Looking to renew and refresh like Nitika does with her favorite exfoliator? Try our Gommage Exfoliating Gel. Ideal for all skin types, it produces an enzymatic elimination of dead cells that allows for cellular rejuvenation and leaves the skin clean, fresh and velvety smooth, without the microbeads.
