Glowing Skin Is Always In

Glowing Skin Is Always In

January 19, 2021

The combination of winters cold temperatures, harsh winds and low humidity levels can take its toll on skin by drying out your face and stealing your precious glow.  To help combat the effects and win the fight, try adding these five hydrating ingredients to your daily skin care regimen.  

My go-to skin care line is Tula.  It’s formulated with probiotics and superfoods, feeding my skin the good stuff it needs. Creating a successful skin routine requires the same careful consideration that we use when selecting the foods we choose for fuel and programs we follow to strengthen and shape our bodies.  There is not a one size fits all recipe.  Experiment with different products to find the ones that work best for you.

Remember, there is no substitute for proper rest, hydration, eating whole foods, having a daily sweat sesh and incorporating emotional fitness habits into your daily lifestyle.

Ceramides

Ceramides hold skin together and form a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage from environmental stressors, which helps prevent dryness and irritation. They are especially useful in eczema-prone individuals by helping to repair a poorly functioning skin barrier.

Ceramidesare most often found in moisturizers.

 

Best Value - CeraVe daily moisturizing lotion $12

Luxury - 24/7 moisture by Tula $52

 

Apple

Packed with antioxidants and rich in vitamin C apple will help protect against ultraviolet radiation and lead to younger and more radiant looking skin.

Apple extract is found most commonly in serums.

 

Best Value - The Ordinary Buffet Serum $15

Luxury - Dew Your Thing by Tula $48

 

Watermelon

Full of antioxidants such as lycopene, vitamin C and vitamin A, watermelon helps to neutralize free radicals and as a result slow down the signs of aging. Vitamin A will also encourage the growth of collagen and elastin cells.

Watermelon extract is used in illuminating serums and mists.

 

Best Value - Earth to Skin Super Fruits Watermelon All Over Serum $9

Luxury - Rose Glow & Get It eye balm by Tula $30

 

Squalane

This natural organic compound helps to balance out oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. Squalane oil also has powerful anti-aging properties and anti-inflammatory benefits that will help the skin to age gracefully.

Squalane is typically found in “anti-aging” products like wrinkle treatment or creams

 

Best Value - The Ordinary 100% Plant Derived Squalane $8

Luxury - Wrinkle Treatment Drops by Tula $68

 

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles by retaining moisture in the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn't busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper, more youthful-looking skin cells.

Hyaluronic Acid can be found in moisturizers and intensifying serums.

 

Best Value - Neutrogena HydroBoost Hyaluronic Water Face Gel Moisturizer $8

Luxury - Signature Glow refreshing & brightening face mist by Tula $34

5 Simple Hacks For A Healthier 2021

January 3, 2021

With the New Year upon us its the time we start thinking about resolutions - and promising ourselves that this year we will stick to them. In 2021 instead of thinking of resolutions as a win or lose checklist we encourage you to approach them with a new outlook. Choose health and fitness goals with the mindset that they will enrich your quality of life and make every day better. Our 5 hacks won't make you sweat or spur cravings, rather they will help keep you on track and a create a foundation to build on.

1. Nutrify Your Water

Given the fact that most Americans are deficient in micronutrients and under consume water, combining the two will give your body the healthy hydration it needs to perform daily.  Popular brands like NUUN, Republic of Tea, and Skratch labs offer a variety of options that will turn basic water into a fancy infused health drink.

 

2. Perform A Daily Mind Dump

Emotional fitness is imperative to attain your physical and performance goals.  When your mind gets noisy and stress levels begin to elevate, pull out a pen and create a mind dump list to release some of the mental strain.  Let your thoughts flow, inking all of your daily to-do’s, stressors, goals,time-lines, appointments and anything that is currently causing brain clutter.  You will find increased daily productivity and more restful nights sleep will follow.

 

3. Oats Aren’t Just For Breakfast

Since this superfood is so easy to make and can be served hot or cold we are huge fans of consuming oatmeal around-the-clock.  Commonly served with sweet toppings like fruit and honey we tend to think of oatmeal as a breakfast only food.  Well, savory oats are a delicious trend that make the ideal “briner” – or breakfast for dinner.   Check out social media, and the web for mouth-watering recipes that include cheese, truffle oils, egg, avocado, cracked pepper and even bacon.  

 

4. Power Down Before Bed

Winding down and hour before bedtime is key for a sound and restful nights sleep.  Making a habit to power off smart phones, tablets and limiting blue light will help settle the mind and lower your heart rate.  Taking a warm shower or bath before bed, stretching or including meditative breathing will all help you achieve a recovery rich sleep.  Check out free sleep apps like Calm or go one step farther and track your recovery, training and sleep with the industry leading Whoop Strap.

  

5. Take A Health Hiatus At Work

This one seems simple enough but the majority of us don’t do it. If your job is primarily sedentary be sure to add in a brief five minute break about every hour to get up and stretch, move around or take a lap around the office. If your fitness levels are a bit higher then add in some push-ups, a short yoga pose series or mobility exercises.
