March 7, 2023
March is Women’s Month, and it’s a great time to prioritize self-care. We often experience stress in our daily lives, and it’s important to take a break and do something that helps us relax. Stress triggers the production of cortisol, which can affect our skin’s ability to retain moisture and promote overproduction of oil. So, take some time this month to engage in activities that help you de-stress and relax.
FATS ARE THE WAY TO GO
To maintain healthy skin, we need to consume good fats such as avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, and omega-3s. These fats help keep our skin moisturized and healthy while supporting healthy cellular growth and function, soothing inflammation in the body, and providing us with energy.
When washing our face, we often forget that the temperature of the water can impact our skin’s health. Washing our face with water that is too hot can strip the sebum from our skin, which can zap the moisture and hydration right along with it. Instead, try to wash your face with lukewarm water. Massage our Awakening Milk & Honey Cleanser into your skin for a full 60 seconds to really get the most out of your daily wash.
CLEANING MAKEUP KITS & BRUSHES
Of course, cleaning the face won’t be maximized if your makeup kits and brushes are dirty! It’s essential to wash your makeup brushes regularly to prevent bacteria, oil, dirt, dust, and sweat from building up. Without regular cleaning, all that grime is just being applied right back onto your face every time you put your makeup on. This can result in clogged pores, inflammation, and unwanted breakouts. Try to make it a weekly routine to give your makeup brushes a good wash.
Exercise has numerous benefits for both the body and mind. It helps promote healthy blood circulation, which carries oxygen and other essential nutrients to all of our cells, including our face. That healthy dose of nutrients helps give our face an instant glow and overall radiance. Don’t forget your post-workout skincare routine, either. Make sure to give your face a good cleanse to wash off any dirt and grime.
Hydration is Key
Hydration is crucial when it comes to caring for your skin. Drinking enough water each day can sometimes get boring, but you can also eat your water by consuming fruits and veggies with high-water content like watermelon, strawberry, cucumber, and cantaloupe. Application of topical products is also a good way to help your skin hydrate as it helps maintain your skin’s balance and can reduce inflammation and puffiness.
