We all know how important it is to have a consistent beauty routine, while also practicing self-care. While the two can mean very different things for all of us, it’s important to take care of ourselves from the inside out. We all love massages (yes, please), baths, and some overall “me” time, but what we’re putting into our body matters too. We’ve partnered with HUM Nutrition and some of our favorite influencers in the wellness space, to chat a little bit about self-care and the importance of getting those proper nutrients. Gotta live long and strong, ladies!

Create & Cultivate: The digital world never sleeps. How do you unplug?
Andee Lane: It's really hard given that it is a crucial part of my business, but I take a mandatory day out of the week to completely unplug and focus on self-care. Whether it's a workout or pampering myself with a mask that "me time" is imperative.
C&C: While we love a good face mask, it’s important that we focus on prevention + long-term self-care vs. damage control + quick fixes. What are some ways you invest in your inner-health?
AL: Investing in your inner health is a MUST and the earlier you start, the better! I invest in my inner health by being super mindful of what I put into my body, exercising consistently and also taking vitamins religiously. HUM gummy vitamins are so tasty and effective its been easy to stay consistent– and I love the convenience of their money-saving monthly plan options.
C&C: How do you find the time to make “me” time?
AL: It's extremely difficult at this stage in life chasing after two little ones, running a business and building a new house but my motto is "do what you can when you can." It's hard but... make it happen! Carve out that hour a day to detox and take for yourself.
C&C: Walk us through your ideal self-care Sunday.
AL: My ideal self-care Sunday would start off being technology free. I'm glued to my phone and computer so shutting everything off is the first step! Spending one on one quality time with my kiddos followed by doing something active for myself (usually a workout or yoga class that I like) and ending the day with a healthy meal and some sort of beauty/pampering treatment would be the perfect self-care Sunday for me.
C&C: If you could only pick one self-care hack, what would it be and why?
AL: Honestly taking vitamins and supplements would be my top self-care hack. It's quick, easy, convenient, beneficial and takes two mins! I’m all for a good sheet mask but find vitamins go beyond the surface and provide longer-lasting results with less effort.
C&C: When you don’t have time for your normal self-care routine, what do you do to keep stress and anxiety at bay?
AL: For me exercise is key! Whenever I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed If I sneak in a quick 30-minute workout (even if it's just at home) that always helps tremendously!
C&C: Is there anyone you look to for self-care inspiration?
AL: My kids actually! I see these little guys watching everything I do so I definitely want to set a good example for them so that they know the importance of self-care!
