As we near the end of summer, and the beginning of fall, it’s a great time to re-evaluate your self care routine. As you are vividly aware, this is the time of year for back-to-school shopping, schedule changes, and ALL. THE. THINGS. In order to be present and at your full potential, you must take care of you. Here are a few easy ways to focus on your well-being that don’t take a lot of time, but the benefits will be SO worth it!
Wash Your Face
You’ve read the book, but do you actually spend time removing the build-up that has taken permanent residence on your face? This is a great way to leave the day behind, nurture your sensitive skin, and feel great about taking care of yourself.
How Often: Daily, for best results.
Product: Our Skinny & Co. Cleansing Balm is our favorite way to clean, hydrate, and pamper your skin, because it is a multi-use product. Our favorite part? The ease of removing stubborn waterproof mascara! Try it. You’ll thank us later.
Exfoliating is a great way to feel fresh! From your head to your toes, exfoliating has numerous benefits. Scalp/Hair: Work exfoliator into scalp to remove dead skin and dandruff buildup on your scalp. Rejuvenate lifeless locks by rubbing exfoliator from shaft of hair to tip. Shampoo out after 5 minutes. Skin/Face: For arms, legs, and other areas of the body, use a nickel-sized amount and work into skin, washing off with warm water. For face, use a finer exfoliator and gently rub from hairline to chin, taking care to work into creases. Hands/Feet: Use exfoliator for an at-home manicure and pedicure! Focus on areas where skin has roughened due to excessive use. (We see you going barefoot!)
How Often: Weekly
Product: Our Skinny & Co. Sugar Scrub is great to leave in your shower or bath for focused exfoliation on body parts. Our Facial Scrub is a finer scrub to use on your face as part of your nightly routine.
Soak It Up
Pamper your skin! Your skin is your largest organ, and products begin to absorb into your bloodstream in just over 20 seconds. By focusing on clean beauty products with no synthetic chemicals, you can make sure you are feeding your body from the outside in! Adding lavender coconut oil to your bath will immediately relax you, and nourishes your entire body. Using a nontoxic body melt at night locks in the moisture of your body and gives it time to soak in for a full-body hydration.
How Often: Daily/Weekly - depending on your showering/bathing routine
Product: Skinny & Co. Body Melt is great for using in a bath, or for using as a full-body moisturizer. Choose from Lavender/Almond, Rose/Jojoba, or Marula/Argan for specific benefits and scent.
