New Year, New You!

With the 2019 party season now out of the way, we look forward to the promise of a new year to turn over a new leaf and achieve new goals.

2020 skincare goals

I'm not sure about you, but I'm trying to continue three basic skincare habits this year. These are: 

Hydration from the inside out - drinking a minimum of two litres of water per day and three litres on gym days and warmer days.

Exfoliating - once or twice per week (I need to cut down on this one)

Mask - twice per week (I need to increase this one) 

Why these skincare goals, you ask?

Hydration. The skin is our biggest organ and drinking enough water goes a long way towards preventing our skin from becoming dry, tight and flaky, which sets the scene for ageing. By staying hydrated we help the digestive system to flush out toxins, leading to clearer, more balanced skin, plus we have a better base on which our skincare products can work. 

Exfoliating. I love exfoliating and I probably exfoliate too much at about 3-4 times per week, so my goal is to reduce this to just once or twice per week to prevent counteracting its positive effects.

Masks. Masks are a must do for me. I find them fantastic for reducing my pores and balancing my skin but I tend not to do them enough! So this year, I will be applying a mask twice per week.

Recently, I've been discovering more about the positive effects of Hemp products on the skin and have been testing some of our Dr. Botanicals Hemp products on my skin, which I'm finding is helping my skin to look less oily and feel more balanced throughout the day.

If like me, you find it difficult to prioritise taking time out to apply a mask, a better product for you and I would be the Dr. Botanicals Overnight Repairing Stress & Anxiety CBD Mask 60ml.

This is because we can apply it at night instead of a night moisturiser and sleep with it on. Two birds, one stone! Aren't we getting efficient in 2020!?!

I look forward to sharing more about Hemp and CBD in upcoming emails.
