Why it’s Important to Change up Your Daily Routine

Having a Routine and consistency is important for our day-to-day lives. It keeps the equilibrium in our busy schedules, but what happens when our routine becomes boring, stagnant or just plain non-beneficial?

5 Essentials to Pack on Your Next Getaway

The last thing a getaway should be is stressful.

Enter the art of minimalism; a beautiful, simplistic, back-to-basics way of being that can help make your vacation time more relaxed and enjoyable. A getaway should be about unwinding your mind, restoring your energy, experiencing the unexperienced, and taking in a new perspective. That’s why when it comes to packing – the less you take, the better.

If you’d like to prioritize experiences over possessions on your next vacay, here are the only 5 things you really need to think about packing. Now, isn’t that liberating?

1.

One Core Outfit

Why not give yourself a break from making decisions about what to wear? Every decision we make throughout the day takes up little bits of mental energy (this is called decision fatigue), so the more we do to cut them out – the better. Pack as many variations as you need of one core outfit (including basics, of course), and you’ll be giving yourself more time to spend on doing what you actually want to do on your trip. Oh, and your core outfit should always include protective items – like a hat if you’re heading somewhere sunny.

2.

Skincare

It’s important to stick to your skincare routine and care for your complexion with consistency. When you’re transitioning into another climate, no matter how slightly different the temperature might be, your skin will know it – keep feeding it the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, even when you’re in another time zone. To pack your skincare efficiently, get a hold of some travel sized containers and bottles. Squeeze the perfect amount of cleanser, moisturizer, body butter, and importantly, sun screen, you think you’ll need. This will save you precious suitcase space, and make your luggage much lighter.

A good book

Whether it’s a novel or a journal – something to read, or write in, is always a good idea. A trip with your favorite E-Reader or physical book is the way to go. Taking a book about the history or nature of the place you’re going to will add extra intrigue and wonder to your vacation. Journaling about the activities you did is also a great way to wind down each night!

An Eco-Friendly Tote Bag

Fold a tote bag into your suitcase so you have a compact, but handy, bag to use during the day on your trip – especially useful if you plan on going to the beach or shopping local products. A tote bag will save you (and the environment) from having to use plastic bags – and many of them nowadays are made with snap locks to keep your valuables safe.

Self-Cooling Water Bottle

Keeping well-hydrated is non-negotiable. When you step outside your day-today routine, you need to be a bit more mindful of what you put into your body. A self-cooling water bottle is the safest way to ensure you always have a cool sip of water – no matter where you are. Listen to your body and it’ll thank you for it.

Are you a bit puzzled as to why you might need a hair mask if you’re perfectly happy just using your shampoo and conditioner?

Please, allow us to guide you into the wonderful world of hair masks – and describe exactly why our new Healing Power Hair Masque is not just a haircare luxury, but a necessity.

And just a quick tidbit to remember, hair masks aren’t a new trend – people all over the world having massaging masks into the their locks for centuries!

1. Protection

We put our hair through a lot. There’s blowdrying and straightening, curling and gunky product. There’s coloring and bleaching, and let’s not dismiss the damage that can happen from bad hair elastics. But, our Healing Power Hair Masque has come to the rescue. One of its main ingredients is Banana Oil, which is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins – all working to help soften the hair and protect its hair natural elasticity, preventing it from breaking.

2. Growth

Did you know that your hair has it’s own personal breaking point? Everyone’s does. It’s the length your strands get to where they’d rather fall out than grow any longer. But the stronger your strands are, the longer your hair will grow before splitting. If you’re trying to get a few more inches out of your hair, our Hair Masque will help get you there. It goes straight into the roots for a deep, intense conditioning treatment – meaning your hair will gradually get stronger and grow longer.

3. Restoration

If your hair’s been feeling a little flat (or weak, frizzy, unmanageable, etc…), a Hair Masque will help restore it back to its happy, healthy old self. Using nature’s most reparative natural ingredients and processing them through ColdPress Technology® – our Hair Masque is filled with natural oils that work super hard to heal your hair, and it gets right to the root of the problem, too. Your tresses will come out of the shower looking visibly stronger, healthier and glossier. Yes, please!

4. Hydration

Hydration is key for healthy, shiny hair. The Avocado Oil in this Hair Masque is moisturization central – it helps hydrate and rejuvenate the scalp. A rich source of proteins, amino acids and vitamins – Avocado Oil works to soothe the scalp and promotes long, strong, healthy hair. It deeply penetrates, meaning your hair is healthy from the inside out.

5. Shine

Unlike just your ordinary conditioner, our Hair Masque works its way deep into the hair cuticle – rather than just working the surface. Its bucket-load of hair-saving vitamins and nutrients deeply nourish hair –and restore lustre and shine

Masks contain vital nutrients that will help bring your hair back to life. They help nourish dry locks and provide a serious dose of moisture. Eventually, you’ll notice that your hair becomes softer, silkier and more manageable. Use hair masks twice a week if you want hair that looks beautiful and fabulous.

6. Manageability

Hard-to-manage hair can be hard to live it. It’s frustrating and time-consuming, and we can’t have a busy lady like you fussing and fretting with unruly locks every morning. That’s where Hair Masque comes in – because masks are the unsung heroes in the realm of hair manageability, and ours is particularly powerful with its secret weapon of Banana Oil – which creates order, shine, growth and even controls dandruff! It’s our little miracle formula is restoring balance and control to disorderly tresses.
