What You Should Put in A Sexy Self-Care Package
If there was ever a time to send yourself a sexy self-care package, it's now.
It can be tempting to only make time to pamper the lovers in our lives, and this can lead us to neglecting ourselves.
Self-neglect? We're not here for it! So, here are some basic steps to compiling a sensual self-care package.
The right atmosphere
The first step in building yourself a racy self-care package is finding something to help you set the right mood.
We get so accustomed to creating an amorous atmosphere for others that we can forget to show ourselves the same level of TLC.
Light a candle, pick out a sexy playlist, put on a little perfume – because self-care is all about going that extra mile for yourself.
Self-care essential 1: lube
Why wait for a special occasion to treat yourself to some sexy essentials? You are the special occasion!
Start by getting yourself some luxurious lubricant. We're all guilty of just sticking to one type of lube and not bothering to explore what's out there, so when it comes to building a sexy self-care package we should try and live a little.
If you're a fan of all things multipurpose, maybe Lovehoney Harmony 2 in 1 Massage Lubricant is the friend you haven't met yet? For those of you who are all about premium ingredients, a lube like Sliquid Organics Natural Silk Hybrid Lubricant has your name on it.
Self-care essential 2: storage case
Another essential that many of us convince ourselves we aren't deserving of is a sex toy case. Surely a case is only for people who own more sex toys than they can count, right? Wrong!
If you love your cock ring collection so much, why would you keep shoving them in the back of your sock draw? Treat your toys with the care they deserve by keeping them safe and secure.
The Joyboxx Hygienic Sex Toy Storage System is the ultimate sex toy storage system – it even comes with a Playtray that you can rest your favourite toy on when you're done with it.
Self-care essential 3: toy cleaner
If you own a sex toy but don't own any sex toy cleaner, what are you waiting for?
Keeping your toys so fresh and so clean is basic self-care. Grab yourself some Lovehoney Fresh Toy Cleaner and go to town on your toy chest.
Some sexy attire
Sometimes a little wardrobe update is all you need to get your mojo back. You don't need to go all out, just treating yourself to a new pair of sexy knickers or boxers might be enough to get you feeling yourself.
Having said that, you're the one in charge of your self-care, so don't hold back! Sometimes you just need to get yourself a wet-look catsuit.
Take time to explore
What toy or kink have you been thinking about trying? We can't say what it is for sure, but something sprang to mind, didn't it?
Don't be shy! Push the boat out and try something different. It's normal to feel a bit unsure about the unknown, but Lovehoney has a smorgasbord of support standing by if you need it.
There are product videos and buyer's guides galore, blog posts about getting to grips with a new toy, and you can take a deep dive into Lovehoney's YouTube channel.
Don't forget to indulge
There must be a sex toy do you know you'll love but isn't a part of your collection yet. If funds aren't the issue (and that is very valid issue) what's holding you back from getting the toy of your dreams?
Maybe you feel like it has to be your birthday before you can splash out, or perhaps you're the kind of person who is more comfortable with buying gifts for others than you are yourself.
Self-care is often mistakenly equated with frequently spending large sums of money on yourself, and that's not what engaging in self-care is about at all. However, if the thought of ever treating yourself is kind of scary, that could be something to work on.
Sexual happiness starts with the way we treat ourselves, so take these ideas and show yourself some love and affection – that's an order!
