I know that many people reading this blog are glad that 2020 is behind us. We have great hopes for 2021. Both in our personal and professional lives, things are bound to get better.
How many of you have dropped your healthy habits in the past year? I have to say I have struggled with my strict diet of no sugar, no flour and no junk food. In the beginning, having more hours at home looks like an opportunity to complete family projects. It was a disappointment. Also, being isolated (with a man who loves his carbs) has taken a toll on my willpower. Now I’m paying the price and see 2021 as the time to get back to my healthy habits. I’m even trying to add a new exercise routine to this mix.
And, along with my changing mission in the new year, I want to be healthier overall…especially in a time when health is tied to immunity to an uncontained virus. I’m sure many of you are nodding. With the coming of the new year, a new vitality to change our way of life.
Whether it’s a new diet, exercise goal, or a commitment to healthier skin care products, a change in lifestyle can affect the way your skin looks.
A big change – such as sweating more after a new workout, extra sunshine from an outdoor running routine, wearing a mask more or simply choosing a new option the foods you eat – can change the texture of your skin or even cause breakouts. In fact, your skin is often the first to show the effects of your new changes, good, bad, or bad. So how exactly do you take care of your skin when you have different habits and routines? Very good question.
If you are healthy in 2021, we welcome and support you every step of the way. We strongly recommend a non-toxic skin care routine in conjunction with any of your solutions. However, it is important to add new products gradually, even those that are not toxic. Anything new, including plant-based ingredients, can be a shock to your system if introduced all at once. Especially when your body is busy adapting to other new variables.
When trying out any new skin care product, we always recommend testing a patch by placing a small amount of the product on the soft underside of your forearm to see how your skin reacts. This is especially important for people who are allergic to plants, as natural products are largely derived from plants.
As you progress on your journey towards better health, here are some tips to make your transition to healthier products a smooth one:
- Inventory. Make a list of all the personal care products you use and study their toxicity on The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Intensive Cosmetic Database. You’ll find that some of your products will rank higher than others, so those are the ones you’ll want to swap first.
- Exchange your product when you run out. When you run out of moisturizer, replace it with a healthy alternative. This will give you time to get used to the new products and make gradual changes to your daily routine.
- Start with night products. After all, they call it “good night’s sleep.” While you are fast asleep, your skin has a hard time working. Give it a chance to absorb the ingredients beneficial to you and rejuvenate. Fortified with antioxidants is a great way to nourish your skin; also you can mix it with your existing night cream, Anti-Oxidant Night Serum or new product Citrine Complete Botanical Treatment.
- Clean your brush. One thing that is often overlooked, but especially important, is to always remember to switch or clean your brushes as you transition to a new makeup look. Bacteria and chemical residue from previous products can build up in the brush and we don’t want anything to affect your new, healthy product.
A healthier, more natural lifestyle is one of the best long-term investments you can make for your overall health and that of our planet. While the results of your toxic-free lifestyle may be gradual, you’ll begin to notice that your skin looks healthier, you feel more comfortable, and have more energy throughout the day. . And – what’s best – These changes will not only benefit you, but also those around you. When you reduce your poison intake, others who share your air are also exposed to less toxins.
