Happy New Year to all our loyal and new readers!
We still can’t quite wrap our heads around the fact that 2020 came upon us so quickly, but we are excited to officially be in the New Year and look at the year ahead as a blank canvas ready to be filled with exciting adventures and new opportunities.
This is the time of year when it’s almost impossible to escape all the “New Year’s resolution” style posts making their rounds, but we have something a little different for you.
Unlike last year, and years before, when your goals may have been focused primarily on work or “getting ripped” in the gym, why not make 2020 a year where you focus a little more on your self care goals that will help to benefit you physically as well as mentally.
In our latest post, we share a few realistic skincare and wellness goals to help you feel your best, because when you feel good, not only do you look good, but you’re better able to dedicate your time and energy into all those other pursuits.
So take some time out to chill and relax as you read our latest post and make this year one to take things a little slower; often slowing down can help to attract more good things to you than you realize!
Do this every morning to improve your mind and gut health
Instead of immediately reaching for your phone to scroll through insta, followed by a hot coffee, why not put that phone down and allow yourself to enter into your day in a more mindful manner?
Think of three things you are grateful for upon waking and envision one thing you plan to achieve for the day. Imagine yourself at the end of the day having achieved this and carry that sense of accomplishment and excitement with you into your day.
Before enjoying your cup of Joe, sip on a mug of warm water with the juice of half a lemon to help wake up your digestive system and gently detoxify your liver.
Lemon water helps to flush toxins from the system and the Vitamin c boost will make for happy, glowing skin.
Wait at least 20-30 minutes before enjoying your brew.
Go greener with your skincare to help reduce your carbon footprint and to enjoy healthier skin
We’re all aware that we need to do our part towards protecting this precious earth, but we aren’t judging you if you have no idea where to begin.
In fact, we are here to help you out with that!
Your skincare products are a great place to start.
Conventional products, made with unsustainable packaging and synthetic ingredients all negatively impact the earth.
Many plastics cannot be recycled, causing them to end up in landfills and pollute the planet, and synthetic ingredients put our wildlife at risk when they swirl down the drain, entering our waterways and streams.
As a member of greenamerica.org we’re very mindful about this and are proud to share that our products will help you to ensure you are doing your part towards living a greener life.
We use plastics that are easy to recycle, and have a high local-to-the-cusomter demand for the recycled plastic material.
For example, we use PET bottles, that have a large number of recycled uses, including fibers, clothing, non-food bottles, moldings, strapping and so on.
Turn your skincare routine into your new nurturing ritual
Last, but not least, make sure you really make the most of your skin care routine.
If finding time for yourself is hard with your busy schedule, then the time you take to apply your skin care products every morning and night, is the perfect time to really enjoy that “me time.”
Put your phone away, pay attention to what you are doing and gently massage your oils and lotions into your skin for at least a few minutes,
Not only will you feel a little more relaxed, a massage is a great way to enjoy an instant skin radiance boost!
We hope these goals inspire you to live a healthier, more mindful life this year.
Here’s to a healthy body, calm mind and happy skin all year long!
