How often do you think “I’m so busy! I wish I had more time for myself!”, “I need more hours in the day!” or “I can’t make time for body care. What does a skin care routine even mean!?”
The combination of work, running round after your kids (or partners!), socialising, and looking after yourself can be extremely challenging, and it is difficult to find a balance. Leading incredibly busy lives, we often find ourselves putting others first and our own well-being at the bottom of that long list of ‘To Dos’!
“Me-time” allows us to de-stress, unwind and rejuvenate whilst restoring your energy and peace-of-mind levels.
Of course it is difficult to find time to solely focus on yourself, but it is worth highlighting the importance (and benefits) of it…for both your mind and your skin. In this blog post, we explain the easiest and best ways to make some ‘me time’ in your daily routine, even if it is just for 20 minutes a day!
- Run a bath
Shut yourself in your bathroom and wash your troubles away in a lovely warm bath. Pour a few drops of our Moisturising Oil into the water and delight in the soothing scent of Verdure. Aromatherapy oils can be a powerful tool for elevating your mood. More than just a fragrance, the essential oil of patchouli can transform your mood and your productivity. The warm, musky scent of patchouli helps reduce tension, insomnia and anxiety, while uplifting your mind.
- Pamper yourself
Once you’re thoroughly clean and relaxed, massage your whole body using our Moisturising Oil. This light oil will glide over your skin as you fully unwind. Not only will this help improve circulation for collagen boosting, but it will also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks and improve lost skin elasticity…two birds with one stone!
- Stay mindful
Just before you go to sleep is the perfect moment for a spot of mindfulness and aromatherapy. Start by spritzing our Verdure Room Mist 30 cm away from your pillow. The fine mist will double up as a pillow spray. Once you’re comfortable, take 5 deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. The warming fragrance of patchouli essential oils helps relieve stress, tension and anxiety symptoms, thereby relaxing your body into a healthy night’s sleep.
Consistency leads to greater results. With this skin care routine not only your skin will begin to glow, but you will also feel fantastic inside and out.
