After putting away our dancing shoes post New Year’s Eve and finishing off the last of the Christmas food stash at Balance Me HQ, we’re taking time to think about how to bring some balance to our well-being routines. We’ve put together our top tips on how to get super healthy, glowing skin the natural way. A small change can definitely make a big difference…
#1 Go back to basics and moisturise!
A good moisturiser is a skincare staple and finding the right one for you can make a huge difference to your skin. Keeping skin hydrated will help keep skin smooth and protected throughout the wintery months. It’s a great idea to take some time to discover the perfect day moisturiser for you; nourish oil-prone skins with our lightweight balancing face moisturiser, or for some deep hydration try our moisture-rich face cream (which leaves skin perfectly primed for make up!). Mature and very dry skin will benefit from the plumping hyaluronic acid in our intensive wrinkle repair cream.
#2 Drink plenty of water
Glow from the inside out and sip water throughout the day, rather than occasionally glugging a few glasses in one go. We aim for 6-8 big glasses a day to help keep skin smooth and clear.
#3 Use an eye cream and take time to apply it
The perfect wake up call for your peepers on dark winter mornings! Lightly tap the wonder eye cream with your fingertips just under the brow (in an outwards motion) and then in towards the nose along the edge of the eye socket. Keeping this delicate area hydrated will brighten and revitalize, whilst helping to visibly improve the signs of ageing. We find applying our wonder eye cream is also a relaxing way to soothe eyes after a long day, so it’s a wonderful, calming skincare ritual to start and close the day.
#4 Opt for natural
We combine high grade essential oils with powerful natural actives to produce innovative, hi-tech formulations. Make 2014 the year you get tangible results the natural way! Check out the % natural we proudly stamp on each of our products. Read our blog on natural ingredients here.
#5 Try an oil – it’s the wonder treatment for all skin types!
Leave behind reservations about using an oil – those beauty editors and bloggers really are onto something! Ideal for even oily skin, facial oils help to balance your skin. Oil-prone skins can be brightened with our radiance face oil; just massage a drop into skin for a replenishing evening treatment. If your skin is sensitive, opt for our new rose otto face oil. Its slightly lighter texture is perfect for strengthening and protecting sensitised skin whilst olive squaline gives the oil an indulgent, glossy texture to leave skin with a sophisticated, radiant finish.
#6 Get brushing
Liven up a slothful circulation by body brushing in the direction of your heart. This helps to wake up the body, so it’s a great way to start the day. If it sounds like a bit of a chore, Balance Me director Clare recommends using two brushes rather than one to save time! Follow up with our invigorating spa-inspired super toning body oil massaged into skin to help combat dimples and dry areas.
