Healthy luminous skin comes in two parts.
First is a good skin care routine, second is internal.

When you take the time to de-stress, it will show on the outside!

For centuries, the Japanese have relaxed in mineral-rich onsen (natural hot springs) which are renowned for their skin restoring capabilities. These benefits were previously limited to Japan. Until now!

5 steps to rest, relax and de-stress

#1 Light some candles

Getting the right atmosphere is the first step. A softly lit room will give your eyes some rest from staring at bright screens all day.

#2 Take a bath

The heat will relieve tension in tired muscles. Try adding a handful of epsom salts, half a cup of baking soda and some lavender oil (how much comes down to personal preference). This combination will draw out toxins, lower stress-related hormones and re-balance your PH levels.

#3 Pamper yourself

Use those luxurious lotions that you have been saving. Maybe try a face and/or hair mask. Or take the time to give yourself a mani/pedi.

#4 Drink green tea

Green tea contains theanine- an amino acid that promote relaxation. Green tea is full of antioxidants which protect your cells from damage from free radicals (which plays a major role in aging). It also improves blood circulation and lowers cholesterol.

#5 And finally take a moment and appreciate the simple things in your life and your what you have achieved thus far. Because you are strong and beautiful, both inside and out!
