We know that for real, sustainable, and meaningful self-care, you need to go deeper than a face mask. Self-care, at its core, is about connecting with yourself, grounding your emotions, and tending to your own needs. However, sometimes in the pursuit of this radical self-care, you just might want to stop and apply that aforementioned face mask.

Here, we listed some of our favorite advice from experts on achieving your ultimate self-care ritual, well beauty ritual.

Pick-and-choose what works best for you, adapt them to your life and routine, and have a happy little Sunday:
