3 Ways To Prioritise Yourself, According To Model Jess Purchase

Adding these tips to our routine, stat.

The daily demands of life can take their toll on the best of us. For Sydney model and endota spa ambassador Jess Purchase, her jam-packed schedule of social commitments, work, and travel leaves little room for leisure. To create balance, she makes self-care a priority.

“We’ve become so accustomed to being ‘go go go’ all the time, that we forget how good it feels to prioritise ourselves and look inwards,” Jess says. “A healthy and happy mind and body means you can be so much more productive in all other aspects of your life… There’s nothing selfish about making time for yourself a priority.”

For those of us looking for a little guidance, the model shares her advice on starting your own wellness routine, to recharge and reconnect with yourself.

“Start with one thing at a time. It’s so easy in the age of social media to feel like you need to commit to a million self-care activities, but really, investing in one or two things at a time that make you feel good will help you stick to them,” she says. “Once you have them under your belt, you can try for a couple more.”

Here Jess reveals the nourishing yet simple ways she puts self-care first.

1. Soaking up the sun

“The sun’s rays never fail to boost my mood, so when I’m feeling stressed, I always endeavour to go for a walk or an ocean swim to soak up some Vitamin D – of course always while wearing SPF50+.

I always notice a day where I’ve been too busy to go outside. Without fail, these days turn out to be less productive, often resulting in a lack of concentration and focus. While it takes time out of my day to dedicate to self-care practices, they allow me to show up as the best version of myself in my everyday life.”

2. Frequent facials

“Regular facials not only help my skin to look its best with a tailored treatment plan that combats my concerns, but it’s a chance to take time out and engage in something that makes me feel relaxed, calm, and connected. The Intense Radiance Facial from endota spa is my favourite to brighten my skin and enhance my glow, leaving me refreshed and ready to take on the day.”

3. My skincare routine

“Without fail, I dedicate time each morning and night to my skincare routine. Not only for the obvious benefits to my complexion, but also to instil a sense of relaxation and purpose into each day, helping me to recognise the power of the simple things in life.

I’m no skincare expert, and so often I find it hard to know that the ingredients I’m putting on my skin are good for me and good for the planet. That’s why I love endota’s Organics range, which only contains certified organic and natural ingredients. It will always have a permanent place on my beauty shelf, as I truly believe what goes on my skin is just as important as what goes in my body – and it works.”
