With each New Year comes an opportunity to set those well meant New Year’s resolutions, be it a reflection on the past year motivating changes or a more recent over indulgence through the festive period. Health and wellbeing is often on the top of people’s lists motivating a desire to cleanse, detox and rejuvenate inside and out.
On The Face Of It.
Skincare can often be at the top of people’s list and if you’re not 100% happy with your existing skincare routine it’s always worth seeking some professional help from a beauty therapist. They can provide useful knowledge on skin types and care routines that can make a huge difference to the effectiveness of products used and the longevity of the results. Dead Sea mineral skincare products are great all-rounders as they naturally address the core staple health requirements of skin, leaving it younger looking, more even toned and soft to the touch. Magnesium promotes healing and increases cell vitality whilst Potassium balances moisture levels ensuring skin is plumper and smoother. Many bacterial problems are also relieved by the presence of Sulphur. The effects are not purely superficial, Calcium strengthens bones and nails, Bromide minimises stiffness, and Iodine that is vital for the correct functioning of the body’s metabolism and thyroid gland. The healing powers of Dead Sea minerals can also be seen through their application to skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis, the symptoms of which can be greatly reduced, sometimes permanently. All great news in the winter months when cold harsh weather can exacerbate even minor cases. If you aren’t already using a cream cleanser switching to one such as the Gentle Cleansing Cream, which includes Dead Sea Minerals and Vitamin E boosts the repair processes needed after drying, dehydrating environmental conditions have taken their toll.
Finding Your Inner Wellness.
Even just some small lifestyle and dietary changes can make a big difference to you health and wellbeing. Spice up your life by using more spices in your cooking, these boost your metabolism and accelerate the fat burning process. Increasing fibre intake will provide much needed roughage and also help suppress appetite if weight loss is desired. The use of essential oils such as Grapefruit can positively regulate appetite and fat metabolism. Grapefruit Oil can be found in most Make Me Dead Sea Mineral Body Wraps that are designed to create optimal skin health whilst facilitating weight loss.
Whilst most people know they should drink more water many still find it difficult to elevate their daily intake to the recommended 1.5-2 litres a day. This is a massive help for weight loss as drinking water before eating initiates prime rectors in the stomach. These send fullness signals to the brain; which can encourage the desire to ingest smaller meals and therefore fewer calories. If it’s a little over facing to hit the optimal water intake straight away start by drinking what you can and aim to reduce some of the daily coffee/tea intake and replace these with herbal teas. The ingestion of more “healthy fats” such as polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are actually vital to bodily functions and can give a sense of hunger satisfaction, again promoting smaller portion ingestion and less snacking. Of course we can’t leave out the need for beauty sleep, always aim to get at least 8 hours a night. During sleep your body carries out essential maintenance work healing/repairing blood vessels, damaged cells and boosting the immune system. Some studies have shown that sleep deprived individuals are also more likely to have greater appetites and therefore consume more calories. With everyday stresses in our busy lives being relaxed enough to fall into a deep sleep can be tricky. Try a hot bath (not boiling) before bed to relieve stress and relax muscles. There’s no reason why this can’t be a beauty regime booster, try adding some Dead Sea mineral bath salts to sooth mind and body, skin will be left nourished and healthy whilst the day’s aggravations will melt away.
Good Luck And Remember Any Achievement Is A Success.
So initially this can potentially look like a lot to do but do not be disheartened. Even achieving a few small permanent changes can make a big difference to how you look and feel. If you don’t achieve all your New Year’s resolutions just be proud of what you did accomplish and remember there’s always next year to hit the other goals.
