So friends, Lets get started!
With my increased hand washing post pandemic, I find that my hands have become extremely dry and flaky. I have combated this by applying the All Natural Oatmeal & Coconut Unscented Lotion to my skin three times a day. First, beginning when I awake in the morning. Next, right after lunch . And Lastly right before bed. Routine is so vital when it comes to great long term care of skin! Because the Ajaba Naturals lotion does not leave behind a greasy residue, the pores in my skin are easily penetrated and the feeling of softness lasts for hours at time. (Even with my constant hand washing and sanitizing) The All Natural Oatmeal & Coconut Unscented Lotion has a moisturizing formula that is gentle on sensitive skin, however it packs major moisture for even the driest of skin. Leaving skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated. I am positive you will see improvements in your skin after the first week of using this routine. Happy Moisturizing Friends!
Now, Lets talk Wellness and Mindfulness!
Here are a couple tips to keep you Centered, Healthy and Happy! This week try focusing on good drinking habits. This has nothing to do with happy hour, but everything to do with focusing on Water! What we put into our bodies matters so much. And so this week I suggest swapping sugary drinks with water as well as incorporating water with all three meals in your day. You can even get a little fancy if you want to throw in a cucumber, some fresh mint or lemon. But it is totally not necessary. Our skin thirsts for water. And your skin will be thankful for the minor adjustment to your diet. Water is known to also get rid of toxins in your system, and studies have shown that it can help with skin issues, such as acne. Overall water is a simple way to add hydration back into your body and assist your skin with achieving natural glow and repair. So get your shine on this week! And I'll catch you next Monday with some new tips! For those of you who like a little extra in your water try this recipe!
