We caught up with this beautiful, young artisan, who is also one of our founders on the Inside Outer Beauty Marketplace. She reminds us that self-care is a work in progress. There is no formula, no one prescription, no fuss. Find what works for you and stick with it.
Where are you from? Where do you live? And what are you creating?
My name is Nyheir, founder of Three IV Seven. I create hand poured candles. I was born and raised in Brooklyn but currently live in Delaware.
Share with us some of the self-care rituals you practice
My night skin routine has become my daily ritual. That time has become my time to recharge after the end of the day. I’ve struggled with acne my whole life and since I have found a routine that truly works for me, I make sure to stick with it.
I don’t have a weekly ritual but I do have a bi-weekly therapy session. It’s a decision I went back and forth with for a year before starting. I started virtually last year and have loved it so far. I struggle with telling people what I am going though but having a space to emotionally dump, get support and tips has been amazing.
Hair and nails are two things that are a must for me monthly. “My crown is my glory” is the perfect way to explain how I feel about my hair. I love trying different styles and taking care of her. When I was younger doing my own nails was my go to “feel good” activity and I enjoy it even more now having someone else do them.
I don’t currently have a annual ritual. But something I want to start doing is an annual solo trip.
