Mostly Tryin’: Holistic Skincare

I am guessing I’m not alone in emerging from the strange sanctuary of lockdown resembling something of a bleary-eyed troglodyte, but I think I may have found a remedy to our skincare woes.

I had heard much chatter as to the restorative properties of Osmosis Frequency Enhanced Water, “a revolutionary technology which provides frequencies to the cells to recalibrate and balance disruptions caused by environmental toxins”, sounds impressive n’est pas?! A few drops on the tongue helps to clear blemishes and harmonise inflammation.

Despite my fickle eye for a beauty bargain, I always return to Caudalie and their much-lauded Vinexpert dietary supplement. High in grape-derived anti-oxidant action, there is a reason this supplement has been daubed the “French Paradox in a capsule”! Lastly, but certainly not least, The Organic Pharmacy Beauty Drops are a hard-working dual-purpose supplement helping to energise both skin and body. A few drops of this magic little elixir can be added to your favourite serum for extra hydration and an immunity hit which may just come in handy in these perilous times…

Skincare Cocktail

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to do the wrong thing? I don’t mean pulling the wings off flies but rather failing to looking after oneself even though you know better.
For example, I currently have a fridge full of plumpcious fruit and vegetables, cupboards brimming with nuts and protein rich delights and yet somehow I find myself inexplicably drawn towards the remnants of the Christmas “naughty draw” where all manner of chocolaty temptations reside.
The funny thing is, I’ve never been a particularly big fan of chocolate, I can generally take it or leave it. It’s the salty indulgences which tend to hold my attention. Perhaps this question goes much deeper than whether or not we choose a wholesome or unhealthy snack but I often wonder why it is so much easier to do the wrong thing despite knowing better. Is it perhaps an unconscious desire to rebel against the constant and dare I say somewhat tiresome images of Instagrammers savouring “smashed” avocado on toast, Chia pudding and the like?

This New Years I made a quiet decision to do better if I know better. I have to admit, it hasn’t always been easy (or successful) but you know what practice makes… x
