How to Feel like an Angel :
Be nice to everyone. Help someone. Encourage someone.
Take care of the environment
Drink a big glass of water after you wake up and then continue to drink water all day long. Not only does drinking water boost skin health, which will make you glow, it also helps your body/brain function properly
Eat a healthy breakfast full of superfoods
Dry brush before you take a bath or shower to promote circulation and for angel soft skin.
Apply a body cream within a minute of getting out of the shower in the morning
Take care of your skin. Have a skin care routine, wash your face twice a day and moisturize for an angelic glow.
Always put on sunscreen, even when it is winter and even when it is cloudy! Protect yourself from sun cancer and from wrinkles.
Only wear clothing that you love. But to truly feel like an angel, wear flowy, femininely cut pieces made with soft, natural fabrics and opt for a pastel color palette. Think silk slips/camisoles, cashmere sweaters, lace, 100% cotton, and velvet accents

Clean your house, have fresh flowers and surround yourself with beautiful things
Light scented candles during the day and unscented candles at night
Spend time outside, even if it is just for a little bit
Take a bath with epsom salts and candles
Afterwards, use a body oil. Sweet almond oil or rose hip seed oil (also my go to face oil as it tightens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and if you are looking for a face oil I 100% recommend it) are my go to oils.
Use a hair mask for soft, healthy tresses. Here are some of my favorites.
Use an eye mask treatment (after you finish your skin care routine). I like the Clear Turn Moist Charge Eye Zone Masks from KOSE (I originally bought them while we were in Tokyo for our wedding and the pharmacist told me they are the #1 selling eye mask in Japan). There are 32 sets in a pack and they only cost around $12.00 and if you keep them in the fridge they are ultra cooling.
Put on clean pajamas
Use a humidifier (hydrated skin = angel)
Put clean sheets on your bed. Freshly washed sheets will make your bed feel like a cloud.
Use a silk pillowcase. It prevents split ends and wrinkles. I get mine from Slip, this one specifically, but there are a few other options on amazon (that I haven’t tried or else I would link them).
Apply hand lotion and lip balm before you sleep for angel I love Weleda’s Skin Food, which is super rich and I truly do notice a difference in the morning. Also, it is claimed to be a La Mer dupe… I am not sure if that is true as I have personally never used La Mer (so expensive lol) but I like to feel like I am getting the same benefits from using it.
Use a silk eye mask to get more restful sleep and to prevent wrinkles. I buy mine from Slip as well and you can buy it here.
I made an angel inspiration mood board with pics from pinterest. You can find all of them, and more here.
