Understanding the importance of self-care is vital for your overall well-being.
5 Things the Most Discerning Women Never Scrimp On

The most discerning women know that paying a premium price for a luxurious item or experience is a wise decision, especially if it can improve their well-being. Its value is not found in its price tag, rather in its ability to enhance their way of life. We list some of the most important things that any discriminating woman would spend on for the sake of her self-care:

1. Fitness Club Memberships

We can all benefit greatly from the stress-reducing effects of exercise-not to mention its long-term health benefits like weight control and lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. Instead of spending money on baubles you have enough of, splurge instead on regular mind-calming and body-strengthening yoga or Pilates classes.

2. Healthy and Nutritious Food

Your body, energy, and mood are affected by the food you consume, which is why it's worth paying more for fruits, vegetables, and meat that you know were farmed sustainably. By spending more on organic products, you'll be saving more money on healthcare in the long run.

3. Spa Treatments

Massages and spa treatments have gone from being considered a luxury service to being recognized as a therapeutic health activity. Deep-tissue massages, acupuncture, reflexology, and natural therapy are worth spending on as these are found to improve blood circulation, calm the central nervous system, and help the body get rid of toxins.

4. Travel

This generation's adage couldn't be more fitting: Spend money on experiences and not on material things. Nothing relieves stress as much as traveling. A change of scenery, escaping into the unknown, meeting new people, exposing yourself to diverse cultures-these are all travel experiences that can recharge your body, broaden your perspective, and replenish your soul.

5. Luxury Skincare

The skin is the body's largest organ, which is why discerning women invest in a skincare regimen that they know will protect and repair it. A lot of pricey skincare products charge more because they include patented ingredients and technology (and leave out ingredients like parabens and phthalates) that aim to treat specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles or enlarged pores.

La Mer's Genaissance de La Mer range-a collection of anti-aging products which include Genaissance de la Mer The Eye & Expression Cream, Genaissance de la Mer The Infused Lotion, and Genaissance de la Mer The Serum Essence-were formulated with the aim to target specific anti-aging concerns in mind. The range is made from ingredients both rare and hard to cultivate, making it their most luxurious range yet. Each of the products contains La Mer's Genaissance Ferment-an ingredient derived from sustainable forms of the rare pom pom red algae that helps boost collagen production to give the skin a lifted look. It also includes the Smooth Finish Ferment, which is formulated from the sweeping lead brown algae (known as the "retinol of the sea") to help accelerate the skin's natural renewal process, resulting in refined-looking skin.

By investing in products like these, you're also investing in the technology that can help lead you to more youthful-looking skin. Find out more about Genaissance de La Mer by visiting its website. La Mer is exclusively available in Rustan's Makati, Shangri-La, Alabang, and Cebu.
