E!: What advice do you have for people who struggle to make time for themselves?
HD: You need to take the time for yourself whatever that means. It's spending time with your girlfriends or going for a long walk on the beach or dyeing your hair. I make sure to manage the expectations around that and my family is so happy for me to spend time doing anything I indicate is important to me

I have learned to communicate my expectations, like ‘Hey, I'm going to be checked out today. So, if you need something, talk to your dad. I'll be back at this time if you want to do something."

Setting those expectations and communicating them with people in your life, so they're aware of what's going on is great. They have a clear message and it's amazing because they do want me to have time for myself.  

Heidi D'Amelio's Self-Care Must-Haves

Madison Reed Radiant Hair Color Kit

"I like these kits because they come with everything and it really is so easy. Starting with a good foundation helps the whole thing go smoothly. They even have barrier cream to put on the hairline so I don't stain my skin."

Heidi's Tips: "Start out with a clean countertop. I lay everything out in order and make sure I have read all the directions so I know exactly what to expect."

More From Heidi: "I can just dye my hair anywhere and I don't need anything aside from what's in the box. It's really easy. When I think about finding the time to get to the salon and do the whole thing it just stresses me out. Sometimes, I will wake up in the middle of the night to dye my hair. It's when I have the time and everybody's sleeping."

Heidi's go-to hair dye has 3,400+ 5-star Amazon reviews and 26,500+ 5-star Ulta reviews.

This jump rope comes in 6 colors and has 11,800+ 5-star Amazon reviews.

Morphe X Ariel Signature Look Brushes and Sponge

"Dixie turned me on to the Makeup by Ariel brushes and the beauty sponge. They're the best. I took her advice on those and she was so right."

Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment Precision Lip Crayon

"Charli got me on the Patrick Ta lip liners and I love them."

More From Heidi: "Charli is my lip liner queen. She has so many lip application steps. There are so many. I can't do all that. I kind of thought a lot of these lip liners look the same, but she is like 'No, and I'll show you why.' She has explained everything to me."

Heidi D'Amelio's Stress Relief Hacks

This gua sha comes in 9 colors and has 23,900+ 5-star Amazon reviews.

Heidi's Tips: "I've watched tons of videos and I tried to learn more about lymphatic drainage and how to do it. It just helps with blood flow and it's supposed to help with fine lines. For me, the biggest thing is just relaxing. If I don't have it with me, I'll do the motions with my fingers after putting on moisturizer."

Heidi D'Amelio's Pet Parent Hacks

Elegx Pet Grooming Bath Massage Brush With Soap and Shampoo Dispenser

This pet grooming brush comes in 7 colors and has 1,200+ 5-star Amazon reviews.

Heidi's Tips: "I love a good routine. The top thing for dogs is routine. You would think they know how to tell time because they always eat at 5 and then like clockwork at 4:30 they are ready to eat."

Heidi D'Amelio's Favorite Dancing With The Stars Hack

Super Stick It! Tape

"My favorite product I learned about from Dancing With the Stars is the body tape. The clothes need to keep everything under wraps. Let me tell you, there is so much movement and the clothes do not move."

More From Heidi: "I have been using the body tape ever since. I bought tons of back stock. They have thin ones and thick ones. That was my biggest product takeaway that I still use."

E!: What are some tips for those of us who want to regain our confidence? 
HD: One thing that I enjoy doing that has really helped me with my confidence is doing one photoshoot a month. Some of them are bigger than others. Some of them are just with my phone, but it just helps me to feel comfortable moving my body in front of the camera. I just get so much more confident every time I do it and I keep learning.

E!: Planning ahead for that and knowing it's coming up is probably another way to help you feel accountable. 
HD: Just having something on the calendar is helpful. I think anything that you can do that pushes you out of your comfort zone can give you that confidence to do things you didn't realize you could do. Recently, I spoke on a panel for D'Amelio Footwear. This was a room full of people and I just felt so good and after. I really felt my confidence growing. I was so proud that I did that. I just feel so much more confident and that was just a few days ago.
