by Natashya Khoo on Aug 26, 2022
With a recession right around the corner, and the term ‘quiet quitting’ exploding on the internet, it’s no secret that we’re all stressed out, burnt out, and just plain tired. In a season like this, it’s more important than ever to practise self-care.
You might be thinking- what can a bubble bath & a nap solve? Long-term, not much. But it’s necessary to cultivate small moments of rest, release and peace. To help you with that, here are five local brands for you to curate a self-care experience that works for you!
- 5Luxe Scents Co.
- Good Juju
Self care activity: Winding down after a long day
Brand: Candles from 5Luxe Scents Co.
Whether it’s a stuffy room, or if you just need some warm light after a long day of looking at blue screens, a candle is an age-old way to set a calm, peaceful ambience in your home.
5Luxe offers a variety of scents for you to curate a self-care experience that works for you. Their candles are paraben and cruelty free, and are made from a coconut and soy wax blend.
Self care activity: Releasing pent-up tension
Brand: Vibrators from Erosu
We’re all for sex positivity and self-pleasure; we believe that they both contribute to our mental and physical wellbeing. This is where Erosu comes in! They are a local brand that specialises in toys designed for solo and couple sex play.
Choose from a range of beginner-friendly toys to items that are for the more experienced. Let loose!
Self care activity: Getting cosy on a cold night
Brand: Socks from Good Juju
It’s been pretty chilly lately with the rainy weather, so slap on a cosy pair of socks, grab a cup of hot Milo and you’re all set for a snuggly night in. Good Juju’s socks are bright and colourful to mirror your personality, and are suitable both for cosy nights or for a workout session.
If a workout session is your idea of self care, though…
Self care activity: Freshening up after a workout
Brand: Deodorant from JOI
It’s important to take care of yourself after a crushing exercise routine because your body just went through a lot of strain. After a cold shower, roll on some deodorant from JOI to feel refreshed and confident.
Their deodorants come in two sizes and are perfect for if you’re at home or attending a gym class after work.
Self care activity: Once a month comfort
Brand: Organic pads from REFINED
It’s not easy being a menstruator, especially if you’re the kind who bleeds for more than three days (and for the three-day gang, we’re jealous). REFINED has a line of pads and pantyliners that are made out of organic bamboo so that they’re good for your body and for the environment.
For the eco conscious, they also have reusable period underwear!
