Achieve a healthy glow
Here at Look & Cover, we're all for prioritising wellness. When we take care of our health, we can feel more emotionally and physically resilient, which makes us better equipped to manage the challenges that life throws at us. So when we decided to partner with Wunder Workshop to provide a full-size healthy Golden Glow turmeric blend in our packages for a limited time, we were excited to help give that extra glow to our newly kitted-out Look & Cover lovers.
To “glow” is more than just having wonderful skin, it is about having a radiance that goes beyond just how we look, and that is often affected by our mood and alertness. So we decided to put together some top tips to maintain a healthy glow, year-round:
Give yourself some "me time"
Try not to see "me time" as a guilty luxury you cannot afford. Look at it as a daily essential that not only you, but all those around you will benefit from. As one wise individual out there once said "Make yourself a priority once in a while. It’s not selfish. It’s necessary."
Commit to a daily cleansing routine that you can stick to. For the bare basics, invest in a non-drying cleanser, along with a gentle exfoliant. Use them to cleanse twice a day – morning and night - to switch your skin brightness up a notch or two.
Environmental factors like the sun and pollution can damage skin daily, which is why it's so important to use SPF in your skincare routine. Sun exposure is the biggest baddie when it comes to ageing skin and making it look dull, so make sure you’re wearing at least factor 30 on your face and neck daily.
Give your face some love
Massaging your face a few times a week is a great way to keep fine lines at bay. The more you stimulate your skin, the more it wakes up. And more blood flow means increased collagen production, plumping up skin for a natural, healthy glow.
Streamline your shower
Long, steamy showers and baths might feel luxurious at the time, but they can strip the natural oils from your skin. Quick, cool showers are much better for your face.
Try a sheet facemask
Sheet facemasks essentially provide a cover to trap moisture and encourage the serum to soak deeper into your skin. Whether it's Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask or a budget buy, stock up on your favourites to give your already exfoliated skin a mega moisture boost. Plus it's the perfect excuse to throw on your Look & Cover pyjamas and have an hour of "me time."
Maintain a healthy diet
It’s not just what you do to your skin, but what you feed it, too. Dehydration causes more wrinkles than we’d like to think about, so it's important to drink plenty of water through the day. Eating as many fresh veggies as you can is great for good skin so load up on steamed or juiced greens for your vitamin fix, plus oily fish like salmon (which is packed with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D) to max out your glow potential.
Add Golden Glow to your beverage
Wunder Workshop's Golden Glow blend incorporates adaptogen herbs, which are a unique class of plants that promote hormone balance and protect the body, especially from excess stress. In addition to boosting immune function and combating stress, research shows that these adaptogens can:
- Improve thyroid function
- Lower cholesterol naturally
- Reduce anxiety and depression
- Stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels
- Support adrenal gland functions
That healthy glow starts from the inside and Golden Glow is a versatile blend that can be enjoyed at any time of the day in juices, smoothies, lattes as a nutritional supplement. We wish you a lifetime of having a healthy glow.
