If you are thinking about embarking on the journey of attaining a holistic lifestyle or simply trying to clean up your lifestyle habits. Let’s take a little dive into what exactly holistic wellness even means and how all natural skincare products can add to the success of attaining that goal.
What exactly is “holistic wellness”? Holistic wellness is actually an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illnesses or specific areas of the body, this ancient approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with their environment. It emphasizes and cultivates space for the connection of mind, body, and spirit.
Personally, I’ve been on a holistic health and wellness journey for almost two years now. Along the way I’ve learned & unlearned many habits that have honestly changed my life, health, and mindset for the better. I have to admit, it’s truly been a journey of highs and lows. Spans of weeks where I’m very disciplined in my eating, spiritual practices & self care routines. But to be transparent, there is also weeks of lows where my mental & emotional states are literally roller coasters, my self-care isn’t even scratching the surface of decent.
What I have undoubtedly learned on this path is that the journey to holistic wellness is a test of character, will power, and the desire to want a better quality of life. The balancing act of the physical, mental, and emotional aspects in our lives can be challenge. Especially when we’re doing them consciously. Choose to positively invest in healthy habits that essentially make you feel and better, starting with your skin care.
Your skin is your largest organ and it needs to maintain the correct balance to function optimally. The overall health of our skin depends on many factors – from the ingredients we use, through our lifestyle choices, environmental stressors, to our emotional and mental well-being. In the case of skin care, a holistic approach means to nourish your skin with the right ingredients.
Stay away from harsh, stripping products. Try a natural oil cleanser to preserve the absolutely vital barrier function of the skin. Use good vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients that are actually proven to work. Always wear SPF. Establish a fixed skin care routine, and give it the care it deserves every single day.
