Our daily mental health is just as important as our everyday clean skin care routine. With input from the creatives in our team, we put together our favorite home activities to keep our minds productive, yet well-rested, leading to overall better skin during quarantine.
Mindful Movement With Black Swan Yoga
This Austin-native, donation-based, mindful movement organization is one of our go-to destination for regaining balance, both in the physical and mental realm. They may have closed their doors, but thanks to the dedicated instructors & social media, they are now live streaming their videos on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. Just check their website for their allotted times so you don't miss one!
Create Healthy And Delicious Recipes
Perhaps you're also struggling with sudden food cravings coming out from boredom or stress. Instead of feeling guilty, get hands on with simple, healthy recipes. We've been loving Deliciously Ella's Blueberry Banana Smoothie (loaded with antioxidants) & 6 Vegan Sisters' Protein-Packed Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, mmmm.
Take A Bath With These Relaxing Salts
This Erbaviva Relax Bath Salt is just as its' name suggests, pure relaxation. Made from therapeutic grade sea salt and infused with lavender, rose and neroli essential oil to help relieve all the stress or tension you've bee feeling lately.
Another worthy of mention is Plant Apothecary's SUPER SOAK, a powerful organic blend for the ultimate healing bath. Carefully crafted with purifying sea salt, organic eucalyptus, peppermint & lemongrass essential oils - perfect for relaxation after a yoga routine.
Massage your soothed skin afterwards with Erbaviva's Relax Bath Oil and you've got your ultimate spa scrub treat at home!
Light A Candle & Start A Daily Gratitude Journal
Even Keel's Essential Oil Candle: 03 is hands down the top seller of their three. It's a lively blend of Citrus Peels and Indian Lemongrass, grounded in notes of Indonesian Clove Bud & Japanese Cypress. Fuse this non-toxic room edition, and begin to journal what you still have, what you know is true & a list of people you care about and will reach out to.
Sheet Face Mask & Relaxing Music
Acure Beauty's Brightening Biocellulose Gel Mask fiber is made from nutritious fermented coconut, which creates a close contour of the face to evenly distribute the goodness of kale, niacinamide (vitamin B3), ascorbic glucoside (stable vitamin C derivative) and noni fruit.
To detox further, depuff and refresh the eyes with Acure Beauty's Detox-Depuff Charcoal Lemonade Under Eye Hydrogels. Key ingredients include: activated charcoal, lemon extract and German chamomile extract to calm and rejuvenate the skin.
While awaiting your mask to fully transcend its qualities into your skin, we suggest closing your eyes and listening to Pink Noise on Spotify.
