October is National Emotional Wellness Month! To celebrate, this week in the blog we are going to take a pause on our favorite makeup looks and focus on how to help take care of ourselves. Emotional Wellness teaches us how to adapt to life’s stresses and how to adapt to change and difficult times. Learning strategies on how to take care of your emotional wellness can only benefit you in the future, which is why this week in the blog we are going through our four favorite tips on how to improve your emotional wellness.
Something that is easy to overlook and ignore is getting enough sleep per night. According to various sleep studies, it is recommended that adults sleep between seven and nine hours a night. While this may be easier said than done, taking time to take care of yourself and get enough sleep will make you more productive the following day. Not to mention, sleep is good for beauty rest! Try putting on Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment to soothe and help replenish skin with vital moisture and ingredients while you sleep. Getting enough sleep *and* waking up with softer-looking skin sounds like a win-win to us!
Take A Pause
Life can be chaotic for us all. It is important to take a pause and a deeeep breath to help center yourself and take a minute for some me-time. One of our favorite ways to do this is with a face mask, particularly our Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel. This non-invasive 60-second miracle peel gently smooths and exfoliates with zero downtime. Taking a few minutes out of your day to help give yourself a healthy-hydrated glow is something to try to incorporate a few times a week.
Spend Time Outside
Getting out of the office building or stepping outside of your home daily to get some sun is extremely beneficial to our health! Sunlight is essential for health and wellbeing, making it extra important during Emotional Wellness Month. With the weather getting cooler out, spending even 15 minutes outside a day can help improve mood. But don’t forget sunscreen to help protect your skin! Our skin is the largest organ on our body, and we need to make sure that our skin is healthy and hydrated. Using SPF is an easy way to do this and is a good habit to get into. Our Correction Code Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 locks in hydration helps enhance skin’s natural moisture factor while protecting the skin from harmful UV rays.
The last emotional wellness tip we have to discuss is mindfulness. Mindfulness means to be aware of the present moment and *trying* not getting swept up in any stress or anxiety. One way we like to practice mindfulness is to slow down when you can, whether that be waking up a little earlier to have a slower morning or setting time aside for yourself at night. Taking time to check in with yourself is beneficial for your mental health. A time when we like to do this is when we do our nightly skincare routine. As you apply your Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum after washing and toning your face, take time to reflect on your day as Beauty Biome works to help reduce the look of uneven texture.
