Spring is a perfect time to think about taking care of your health. To add a kawaii touch to your self-care, take a look at these picks.
The first thing I think of when I think of health is bandages/plasters. Welly (US) has adorable bravery badges in 2 sizes with matching reusable tins. I love the ice cream set. The bravery badges are marketed to kids, but don’t we all need reminders that we are brave? You can also find Welly products at Target.
Outside the US, Cuteness (EU) and ARTBOX (UK) stock plasters/bandages featuring kawaii characters from San-X, Sanrio and BT21.
Organize your first aid items in an easy-to-spot and totally kawaii Ambulance Box at Round the Clock Mall (CN). Do you think you could resist making the “wee-oooo wee-ooo” siren sound every time you got it out? I could not.
Add some cuteness to health items you already have by using this health-themed clipart from Look Look Pretty Paper to make sweet labels.
Refresh your mask collection with a reusable or disposable Rilakkuma face mask from Daiso (US). The disposable Sakura Rilakkuma masks are perfect for spring. I have the Space Rilakkuma mask and love it and can’t wait to get the Lemon Rilakkuma mask for summer.
Let Noodoll’s Self-Love Stickers (UK) be charming reminders that your mental health is so important.
If you know of someone who needs a pick-me-up, make this DIY Felt Nurse by Miss Tricks Mix. She could make their care extra sweet.
Add some positivity to your Insta feed with motivational self-care and self-kindness cartoons drawn in cute chibi-style by following Chibird.
Or get regular self-care reminders from our favorite lazy egg, Gudetama.
I hope you make time this month to do something to take care of your health, even if it’s just adding a kawaii item to a shelf that makes you smile.
