How to stay healthy this summer

Apply your daily SPF (sunburn isn’t fun for anyone & no one wants funky tan lines!). Embrace “healthier” braais & get togethers. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Travel light. Eat breakfast daily! Last but not least, avoid over-intoxication…

Foods to consume to get your skin’s glow on!

Eat these foods to get your glow on: blueberries, pomegranate, spinach, parsley, turmeric, coconut oil, almonds & kefir. A logical step towards beautiful skin is having a clean biology. If you have healthy digestion & functioning detoxification of the liver & kidneys, it will show. (Constipation = bad skin!) It helps to consume water, fibre & probiotics & even better: live a sugar-free lifestyle.

Toner vs no toner

Apply a hydrating toner before you moisturise. Have you noticed how a wet sponge picks up water so much better than a dry sponge? It’s the same thing with skin. “Wet” your skin first (with toner) and it will draw in more of whatever you put on next. This is also why you should apply skin care products right after cleansing, while your skin is still moist. Try Decleor’s Essential Tonifying Lotion!

Motherhood is stressful… Help!

If mom isn’t healthy, then family isn’t healthy. As a mom, practice accepting help. One of the most damaging myths of motherhood is that you should be able to do it all & it’s a weakness to ask for help. Putting ourselves first often feels as though we’re being selfish. Selfish = ONLY caring for yourself, where “wisely selfish” = putting yourself FIRST.
