Gift guide for your conscious friend

Gift guide for your conscious friend

One way or another, this pandemic pushed us towards mindfulness, thoughtfulness, awareness, you name it. As a life-threatening situation, it made us delve more into the human condition, all the risks we are facing on this planet, and how much responsibility we take for these. We feel now more willing to redesign our lives and become conscious of how our actions, decisions, and attitude affect others. In this general climate of introspection and collectivity, getting back-to-normal might turn into a much more sophisticated game. I’m already scratching my head trying to figure out what to gift my friends and family...

So, why are anti-oxidants good for you? and which ones are our fav.

  Anti-oxidants are found in many fruits and vegetables. Most commonly, anti-oxidants can be found in oranges, blueberries, acai berries, apples, broccoli and spinach.  They can also be found in green tea, red wine and dark chocolate. Yes, if you’re ever in doubt: your nightcap is good for you! (in moderation, of course)   So, why are anti-oxidants good for you? Anti-oxidants help repair your skin by reducing oxidative stress and the over-production of free radicals, which hinders your skin’s ability to rejuvenate and repair itself.

Undressing My Skincare Routine

Undressing My Skincare Routine

      I have been using the same skincare products for almost 5 years. My mentality has always been “if it works, why change it?” Recently, my regular moisturizer was discontinued and I was forced to come out of the skincare rock I lived under in search of new hydration. To my shock, skincare has transformed from Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize to a 1073*#&$^@$ product skincare routine including pre-cleanse, oil-cleanse, regular cleanse, exfoliate, essence, toner, sheet mask, eye cream, SPF, serum and sleep mask. Give or take a step or two ;)   Other than the massive array of products that have...

  Is it worth the ‘trouble’ when no one’s watching?  Real talk, how are you?  The quarantine period has got us and our lives - plus, our beauty routines - on pause. With everything that has been happening in the world, a lot - if not all - of us are putting our conventional habits on hold as we navigate the changes brought about by what the media has been referring to as the ‘new normal’.  Our once flawless, strict to the T X-step regimens were now most probably cut short.
