Global Day of Wellness is an opportunity for you to breathe, relax and take care of you. Laboratories Surface-Paris, a Parisian cosmeceutical cult brand, has chosen to share with you their valuable advice on wellness. We sincerely believe that these moments make it possible to take the time to focus on yourself. Find out how with our selected tips!
Tip # 1: Exfoliation, the first step towards relaxation
Regular exfoliation helps your skin boost the cellular renewal process and also allows your skin to look visibly younger and brighter. When is the ideal time to exfoliate? In the evenings, rub an exfoliating product in circular movements to cleanse and tone the face. Take the time to truly relax. The ideal frequency? If you use a gentle exfoliating product, the magic number is two to three times a week. If you have sensitive skin, once a week is just right.
Tip # 2: The perfect targeted skin treatment in just 15 minutes
Succumb to at-home mesotherapy to achieve a glowing complexion and strengthen your skin from the first application. All in only 15 minutes! Laboratoires Surface-Paris created the first two at-home protocols inspired by Mesotherapy, MESO-BRIGHT and MESO-GLOW. Adapted to the lifestyle of active women who lack the time to visit an aesthetic medicine clinic, these 5-week treatments offer results acclaimed by the press. Journalists from Vogue, Paris Match and Grazia, agree that the MESO treatments are a breakthrough in skincare.
The application takes only 15 minutes and allows you to take care of yourself. The concentrated serums revitalize the skin through its many benefits, and it boosts your morale because the results are visible after the very first session.
Now the only question remains, when is it your turn ?
Tip # 3: Give yourself some ‘me time’
We firmly believe that giving yourself some well deserved ‘me-time’ allows you to relax and unwind. Why not fall asleep in the company of a good book, after drinking some white tea? Reading at least 15 minutes before going to sleep helps ‘turn off’, reduce anxiety and helps you to fall asleep quickly.
In addition, white tea is one of the best anti-aging drinks. It has antioxidant properties far superior to those attributed to green tea and is known to fight against skin aging. A study in England, white tea inhibits about 90% of the collagenase enzyme which acts against collagen levels in the skin! This score is two times that of green tea.
Tip # 4: Choose healthful drinks that work for wellness
Green juices and smoothies are insanely popular and something tells us that it is not ready to stop! Made with fresh, nutrient-dense ingredients, raw juices help cleanse and detoxify the body. In addition, nutrients are quickly absorbed by the body and the effects on our skin and energy levels are felt almost immediately.
Here is an easy DIY smoothie recipe that you can make at home. Among its many benefits, it will stimulate your digestion and also work for your skin. Filled with vitamins and fibers, this smoothie will boost your inner beauty and leave you with a glow. If you’d like to drink this magic potion, you’ll need:
- Half of an avocado
- Half a bunch of asparagus
- Two oranges
- A sprig of basil
- A squeeze of lemon juice
Mix all the above ingredients in a blender. Add water if necessary to achieve the desired consistency.
The Round Up:
Take care of yourself more often! It is important to be able to focus on yourself and have a little ‘me-time’ each and every day.
Disconnect from everyday worries, especially at night, to sleep better and increase energy levels. Start an evening wellness ritual: drink a cup of white tea, slip into bed and read a good book.
And don’t forget to add green juices and other homemade smoothies to your diet, to detoxify your skin from the inside out!
