There is no better word to describe the past few weeks than - intense.
Many of us have been feeling stressed, overwhelmed and worried for the future as we learn to navigate the new normal amidst a global health pandemic.
It hasn’t all been bad though! We’ve noticed more people enjoying family time and prioritizing self-care. People are finally finding the time to do things they were always too busy to do.
With all the extra time many of us have on our hands and the potential effects stress and worrying has had on our skin, read on to find out how you can spend your time in isolation getting the best skin of your life.
CLEANSE YOUR SKIN
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to cleanse your skin daily, even if you aren’t wearing makeup or leaving your house.
Throughout the day, dirt, pollutants and dead skin cells build up on our skin and it is imperative to your overall skin health to wash off all that dirt and grime at the end of the day!
The Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm from SEEH Skincare effortlessly dissolves makeup and impurities and gently cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Forget the makeup cleansing wipes because this will be your new go-to cleanser. This luxurious cleanser is great for all skin types, but especially those with dry and sensitive skin.
For extra glow-y skin, we’d recommend using an exfoliator once or twice a week to get rid of any stubborn dead skin cells and stimulate blood flow.
Our number #1 tip? Sprinkle some of the Exfoliating Facial Polish from SEEH Skincare into your cleansing balm to create your own exfoliator! Make it as scrubby or as gentle as you like, depending on how your skin is feeling!
ADD A TOPICAL PROBIOTIC TO YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Sure, we’ve all heard the health benefits of ingesting probiotics, but in skin care?
Yes! In skin care!
Like our gut, our skin also needs a balance of good and bad bacteria. When our skin’s ecosystem is out of balance, you’ll notice issues such as inflammation, sensitivity and breakouts.
The SEEH Skincare Refresh Balancing Hydration Mist contains active concentrations of leuconostoc, a natural probiotic derived from fermented radishes. Aside from keeping your skin healthy and balanced, this facial mist also provides an immediate hydration boost. We love using this as a toning mist before our moisturizer!
(JADE) ROLL ALL YOUR PROBLEMS AWAY!
The jade roller is THE skincare tool of the millennium. Every YouTube beauty guru and Instagram influencer has shouted its praises from the rooftops, and for good reason!
This facial massaging tool is designed to relieve tension in the facial muscles and boost circulation and stimulate blood flow.
It’s the perfect pick-me-up for days when you’re feeling a little stressed. Our pro tip? Put your jade roller in the fridge before rolling your stress away.
GET LOTS OF SLEEP
Aside from feeling well-rested, 8 hours of sleep also has enormous benefits on our skin.
It reduces inflammation, encourages skin cell rejuvenation and repair, removes toxins and re-balances our skin cells.
An increase in inflammatory cells can lead to a breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are the molecules that make our skin look healthy and plump.
A good night’s rest is necessary to allow our bodies the time to repair and re-balance, so get those hours in.
Simply put, stress is not good for your skin.
It leads to inflammation, breakouts and dullness.
As such, we encourage all of you to put time aside in your day to do something that relaxes you. Whether it’s journaling, writing down the things you’re grateful for, going outside for a walk or calling your mum for a chat, make sure to schedule time for yourself (and your skin).A MATCH(A) MADE IN HEAVEN!
The Japanese have been drinking matcha for centuries for good reason!
Matcha is a powerful antioxidant which aids in reducing inflammation and preventing free radical damage.
Unlike brewed green tea, matcha is made from grinding tea leaves into a fine powder. This high-grade powder is then directly mixed with hot water to create a warm drink or blended into your skincare product, like the Matcha Clay Mask from SEEH Skincare. This means that it is the actual leaves, rather than a diluted infusion, that come into contact with the body.
Its benefits to your skin?
Anti-inflammation, oil-control, brightening and anti-aging. Need we say more?
Okay, we’re off to put on a Matcha face mask, jade roll our skin and curl up in front of the TV with Netflix on (our mindful activity of choice)!
