Lately, there has been a lot of talk about self-care. As our lives get busier, prioritizing self-care becomes increasingly important. Many of us think of self-care as meditation, a day at the spa or even spending quality time with friends. While these are all great ways to relax, there is much more to it!

The concept of self-care is about empowering individuals, families and communities to practice healthy habits, prevent disease and cope with illness or disability to achieve optimum health. Taking better care of ourselves by utilizing the products available to us not only helps Canadians lead healthier lives, it also alleviates strain on our healthcare system! Making a commitment to practice self-care has so many benefits.

That’s why Bayer, a global health products leader, is working to educate consumers on how Better Self-care for a Better Life can make a difference in quality of life, while improving healthcare sustainability.

Year-round, I prioritize sleep and exercise, and take a multivitamin to balance out my diet, and while I wear a facial moisturizer with sunscreen year-round, when summer comes I am even more vigilant about sun protection.

I have definitely been soaking up this gorgeous summer by the pool, and I use Coppertone Clearly Sheer Face daily before going outside (I like it because it’s lightweight and breathable and designed not to cause breakouts) and I also use both Coppertone Clearly Sheer Whipped (which the kids love) and spray formulas on the rest of my body. I’ll be totally honest: preventing skin damage or even cancer is my first priority, but there also is an element of vanity to wanting to keep my skin safe from the sun’s rays…and I think that’s okay!



In support of International Self-Care Day on July 24th, I challenge you to share your self-care practices with me. To help get you started, Bayer has created a self-care calendar with one tip for each day of the month – I think my favourites are 10 and 24!



I am also giving away ten $15 Amazon gift cards (giveaway open to Canadians outside Quebec) so you can purchase your favourite self-care products!
