As February unfolds, a month traditionally associated with expressions of love, it's the perfect time to redirect that affection towards the one constant companion you have—your skin. This February, let's embark on a journey of self-love that transcends the superficial and delves into the science of nurturing your skin. Here's why dedicating this month to loving your skin is not just an indulgence, but a meaningful act of self-care.
A Symphony of Cells:
Your skin is a remarkable symphony of cells working in harmony to protect, regulate, and rejuvenate. Taking the time to love your skin isn't just a cosmetic endeavor; it's an acknowledgment of the intricate biological orchestra playing a crucial role in your overall health.
February often brings cold, dry weather, which can take a toll on your skin. Embracing a loving skincare routine tailored to winter conditions helps to combat dehydration and prevent common winter skin issues. Moisturising, gentle exfoliation, and maintaining hydration become essential acts of self-love during this season.
AHA Cleansing Gel – gentle enough to be an everyday cleanser but the AHA’s work to exfoliate the skin leaving it looking brighter and healthier.
RHA® Serum – deeply hydrating, featuring an exclusive combination of antioxidants and anti-ageing ingredients to transform skin in 14 days.
Advanced Filler Dry – RHA® technology preserves and maintains lasting hydration for the skin to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles whilst nourishing with shea butter.
Deep Repair Balm – A soothing balm designed with the optimum balance of RHA® and soothing ingredients to comfort the most irritated or sensitive of skin. After 15 days of using Deep Repair Balm, skin is efficiently soothed and hydrated.
Stress, Skin, and Serotonin:
The connection between stress and skin health is more than skin deep. Chronic stress can contribute to inflammation, exacerbate existing skin conditions, and even accelerate the aging process. Showcasing love for your skin involves managing stress levels, contributing not only to skin health but also to the release of serotonin, the "feel-good" neurotransmitter.
Tips for reducing stress levels can be as simple as taking some deep breaths whilst waiting for the kettle to boil, or going for that walk you keep putting off, or taking extra time with your cleansing routine.
Consider February as a time to focus on feeding your skin from the inside out. Opt for nutrient-dense foods rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. A well-balanced diet contributes not only to your overall health but also to the vitality and radiance of your skin.
Try adding blueberries to your oats, sprinkle a few almonds on your yogurt or swap a meat dish with a rich plant based meal for one night of the week.
Skin Booster: Teosyal® Redensity 1 is a non-invasive skin redensification treatment that is perfect for revitalising and moisturising the skin, targeting skin concerns such as sun damage, smoking, external pollutants and, of course, the signs of ageing. The treatment is injected into the surface layer of the skin and can be used in the face, neck and décolleté, and not only leaves your skin feeling hydrated and smooth, but also can help prevent the formation of new wrinkles.
Mindful Sun Protection:
Even in the midst of winter, the sun's rays can impact your skin. Incorporate a broad-spectrum sunscreen into your daily routine, showcasing love for your skin by protecting it from harmful UV rays and preventing premature aging.
UVA Shield - A sun care with a very high UVA and UVB protection to prevent UV-induced photo-ageing and the appearance of dark spots.
96% feeling of comfort 95% invisible finish on the skin 87% more even complexion 96% hydrated skin
Unplug and Reconnect:
Digital detoxes and moments of unplugging can significantly contribute to both mental and skin health. The blue light emitted by screens has been linked to skin damage and accelerated aging. Dedicate moments to disconnect, allowing your skin—and mind—to rejuvenate.
Swap your phone screen to a book, be mindful and take 5 minutes away from your desk every hour even if that means you’re offering to make the drinks round in the office, it will give you a break from the screen! Plus it will earn you some brownie points with your colleagues… win win!
Loving your skin is more than a thematic gesture; it's a holistic approach to well-being. From the biological intricacies to the seasonal challenges, expressing affection for your skin is an investment in your overall health. So, this February, let your self-love journey radiate through thoughtful skincare rituals, nourishing nutrition, and a deeper appreciation for the incredible organ. Embrace the journey, and watch your skin flourish from the love it deserves.
