For many people, the arrival of the new year is like a breath of fresh air.
Especially leaving behind the stresses of 2020.
2021 is a great time for setting some personal goals, protecting your mouth, protecting mind, protecting your body.
While the weather is dark and raining, don’t feel down beat. Take that time to give yourself some extra care.
Here is five tips to accelerate your pro health journey.
1. Protecting the face.
Winter skin gets dry and needs that extra moisture that the Summertime would usually bring. Causing breakouts and flaky skin.
If you tend to have those dry patches, exfoliation can deep clean your pores and help keep your skin clear. It also increases circulation and can boost your skin’s natural healing process.
We suggest using a gentle, non-irritating exfoliant like Ocean Saltdaily for brighter, clearer skin.
2. Protect your natural moisture.
A cooler shower is better for your skin and hair because it doesn’t strip them of their natural protective oils. Some studies show cold water can even trigger happy memories. During the winter, the key is to start warm and slowly turn the heat down.
Take advantage of cool-shower and the natural benefits. Experts advise that shower water should never rise above warm.
It’s great for circulation and alertness too. An extra bonus: you’ll save money and energy while you’re at it.
3. Protect the body with a lightweight moisturiser.
Winter is the best time to try a fast-absorbing moisturizer that won’t leave you feeling greasy or shiny.
A rich, non-greasy body lotion with Cocoa Butter and Beta-Carotene for an instant dewy finish.
To use, apply a few drops to your fingertips and smooth it all over your body. Gently pat it onto sensitive areas. It absorbs in moments and will leave your skin soft and hydrated.
4. Protect your thoughts.
Tune into how you're feeling. If Stressed? Take a moment to step away and recharge. Don't keep going, Rome wasn't built in a day.
Set boundaries to conserve energy. This is huge! Say 'No' to things that will tip you over the edge. Your inner peace means a lot.
Use mindfulness to limit your exposure to negativity. The consecutive lockdowns have meant we spend more time on our phones and social media platforms this is great but also can feel like an invasion with everyone's thoughts negative or otherwise spinning around. Take a second to call up a friend you haven't spoken to in a while and laugh, speak your thoughts and share any concerns.
The most powerful of all. Trust your gut. It will let you know when something is not right or when it's perfect for you. It's your natural compass, listen to it.
