Humidity impact on skin

Be aware of the humidity changes in the climate because that has an impact on your skin’s needs. The colder the temperature, the dryer the air. This means that during cold weather the skin tends to loose moisture when it evaporates into the cold air. To prevent this moisture  loss it's important to use an oil, that locks in moist into the outer layers of the skin. When weather goes into spring, or warmer climate, the humidity levels increases in the air. This is why our skin feels less dry in warmer, more humid climates. Then adapt your routine to decrease the amount oil used. In daytime our soft Make My Day. This cream is excellent during sunnier times as the Algica in it acts as a uv filter. This one does the trick by itself, in warmer climate.
Many of you choose to use the cream during the day and the oil over night.
Just keep some attention to what your skin is telling you it needs and adapt the amount of oil contra cream according to what feels is giving you the most comfort. 💚

Glowing healthy skin naturally

Glowing healthy skin is not an overnight miracle.
It’s easy thinking that piling on all the makeup products in the world will help. To achieve natural radiance that makes your skin look healthy and flawless we need to treat our skin at its core and adopt good habits.

Always remove your makeup. Leaving it on clogs the pores which may cause blemishes. Your skin needs to breathe while it’s in repair mode. Double cleanse.

Apply sunscreen also in the winter that blocks UVA and UVB rays. A longtime exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, age spots and more serious skin problems.

Eat fruits, vegetables, greens, protein and vitamins. Cut down on sugar

Exercise regularly to stimulate your blood circulation. If you don’t have time with anything else, take a brisk walk around the block. Notice the glow on your face.

Try to get at least 8 hours sleep

Make time for “me time” and try to avoid stress. Ever notice that you tend to break out more when you are stressed?

Drink water

Do a facial massage when you apply your cream. I mix Make my day cream with Face it serum. Making sure not to pull the skin.

Use gentle skincare products.

Use a face mask like Sea me mask twice a week. It really gives you a noticeable glow and is a true Cinderella mask. Packed with organic ingredients, chlorella and antioxidants that will really make a difference to your skin.

Remember beautiful skin is not a sprint it’s a marathon.

Protect your face from harsh weather

Walking may be the simplest and most underrated form of exercise.

There is a lot of information out there about the positives of running and lifting weights, but the simple activity of walking can provide a whole host of benefits too.

Walking is simple, free, and nearly any able-bodied person can do it.

As well as burning calories, studies show that brisk walks may help to reduce the intake of high calorie snacks by half. Walking increases bone strength, every step counts. People who walk at least 1,5km a day have a higher bone density than those who don’t.

Walking is just as effective as running for fighting major diseases.

Regular brisk walking may help to maintain a healthy weight, prevent various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Improves your cardiovascular fitness level, strengthens bones, muscles, and improves muscle endurance. May improve your mood, sleep, balance, and coordination. Builds up your immune system and reduces stress. Researchers found that walking for 30 minutes, 3 times a week for 3 months had the same mood boosting result as antidepressants.

As for myself, I have a dog who is a very fast walker, come rain or shine, I’m out there walking. I have noticed that my normal winter lows are not as bad since I got my dog Spencer. If it’s very cold or harsh weather I protect my face with All you need is me balm. Since it contains no water but let’s your skin breathe, it’s perfect for protecting the face. My best ideas and thinking also happen out there on the walks.

See you out there :)
