5 EASY WAYS TO INCORPORATE RAW SUGAR INTO YOUR EVERYDAY

At Raw Sugar, we believe skincare should be simple. Our philosophy is all about taking mother nature’s purest ingredients and making the very most of their nutrient-laden prowess.

That’s why Raw Sugar is committed to carefully crafting products that are:

1. Processed through ColdPress Technology® to lock in all their very useful skin-loving vitamins, minerals and enzymes and feed your skin until it glows.

2. Eco-friendly – they’re vegan and free of any nasty parabens and sulfates, plus our packaging is made with post-consumer recycled cardboard and sustainably-sourced bamboo.

3. Good for the planet – Our Raw Sugar initiative means we #livetogive and donate a bar of soap to people in need for every single purchase you make.

So if you want to get some #rawlovin into your everyday life, here’s how to slip it seamlessly and simply into your routine – no extra effort required

FACE IT!

Raw Sugar’s range of facial care is gentle on sensitive skin and gives your complexion a vitamin-rich boost that uplifts from the outside in. With cleansers, moisturizers and polishes in our range of face-lovin’ goodies – we’ve got all bases covered. Simply add a pump of cleanser in the shower in the mornings and carry around a moisturiser for when your face is in need of some mid-day hydration.

IF WE’RE TALKIN’ BODIES…

If you shower in the mornings, you’ll love starting the day fresh with our great range of body washes. If you’re an evening bather, however, our range of soaps have massaging nubs that your tired body will treat as a soothing, relaxing spa-like end to your day.

GETTING HANDSY

Keep a bottle of our nourishing hand wash in the bathroom and kitchen – they’ll keep hands soft, smooth and clean. For extra cleanliness, we also have a range of hand sanitizers you can conveniently carry around in your hand bag to kill germs when you’re on-the-go. Easy.

BUTTER ME UP

Raw Sugar’s range of lush, rich, nutrient-packed body butters are best taken after a shower with their besties, Raw Sugar’s body washes! Your post-bath skin will drink them right up and be well-equipped to properly absorb all their vitamins, goodies and delicious scents. Hot tip: carry one around in your handbag to quickly hydrate dry elbows, heels and knees.

SCRUBBING UP WELL

The last step in becoming a fully-fledged Raw Sugar babe is our yummy range of body scrubs. Keep one in the shower and use it to exfoliate 2-3 times a week – or before events where you want super glowy, dewy, hydrated skin.

WELLBEING & YOU: Feel better, fresher, healthier with 10 easy everyday tips.

Stress less and laugh more. Worry less and do more. Procrastinate less and produce more.

We all know that’s what we should be doing, right? But sometimes life gets in the way and our wellbeing takes a backseat. But, the path to mental and physical wellness doesn’t have to be hard. There are small things you can incorporate into your everyday routine to help maximize your wellbeing and increase your productivity by spades. Because, truly – a little self-care and self-love go a long way.

1.

Make time for relaxing activities.

Every day, put aside a little time to simply indulge in something that eases your mind and feeds your soul. Have a passion for crochet? Love reading? Find cooking therapeutic? Be it going for a scenic walk or engaging in a spot of gardening, it’s important to schedule the things you love doing into your everyday and make them part of your routine.

2.

Find your form of meditation.

Find time in your day to feel present – even if it’s just for a small pocket of 5 minutes. Some people like yoga. Others like to meditate. But for some of us, writing our thoughts down in a journal, doing some breathing exercises or reciting positive affirmations is just as effective a form of mindfulness.

3.

Treat yourself kindly.

We tend to our own harshest critics. Our expectations of ourselves can be sky-high, and when we fail to meet them – we enter a spiral of disappointment. But when we show ourselves the same level of kindness and compassion we show others, magic happens.  Be tender to yourself during hard times. Encourage and reward yourself after small wins. The result? Soaring self-confidence.

4.

Sleep, sleep, sleep!

Whatever you do, try not to skimp on sleep. Sleep enables our bodies to repair themselves and our brains to consolidate memories and process information – without enough of it, our immune systems weaken, and we’re more prone to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. 7-8 hours a night, plus a short power nap or two during the day, will work wonders for your energy levels, health and general state of mind.

5.

Eat well.

Eating a nutritious, balanced diet doesn’t mean doing a rigorous 6-day juice cleanse or avoiding the foods you love in favor of an unsatisfying garden salad. It just means listening to your body and eating in moderation. Try to consume as many wholefoods – plus fresh fruit and vegetables – as you can, and cut back on processed goods, sugar and caffeine. That doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in chocolate cake – you can! Just make sure you’re balancing it all out – and you’ll feel more productive, energized and invigorated.

6.

Move it!

Try to fit in regular exercise. Working up a bit of a sweat will help to reduce stress levels and improve your overall health. Try to find an activity you enjoy –  a daily walk along the beach, a pilates class, or even jumping on the trampoline with the kids for 10 minutes a day.

7.

Stay hydrated.

All hail the healing power of water. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day can enhance cognitive function for a more alert, productive you, it can support digestion, kidney function and detoxification, and it also works wonders for your skin.

8.

Treasure your relationships.

Spending quality time with people whose company you genuinely enjoy not only makes you happier – it can help you live longer, too! Studies at Brigham Young University in Utah have shown that fostering strong relationships with friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues can improve our lifespans by 50 percent. Pretty impressive, huh?

9.

Do some good.

If you’re kind to others, the universe will be kind right back to you. Evidence shows that helping others is actually beneficial for your own mental health and wellbeing. It helps reduce stress, improves your emotional wellbeing and even benefits your physical health. And remember, a good deed is a good deed – no matter how small it may seem.

10.

Stay positive.

The power of optimism – it’s real. Eliminating negative self-talk is an incredibly effective form of stress management – and it even has positive impacts on your health. Looking at life with a glass-half-full approach just means that you understand unpleasantness in a more productive way – you hope for the best, rather than anticipating the worst. It can take some practice, but once you get there – life suddenly becomes more rosy.
