Simple ways to start being healthier
Whether you have made it a New Years resolution or not, becoming healthier is something we should all be striving for. And the key to reaching any goal is to break it down into small steps. Trust me, cutting out everything ‘bad for you’, all at once, will only leave you crying into a bunch of kale.
So why not start by making the switch to natural beauty products, or adding a health boosting supplement into your diet? Those changes are easy enough. Here are some other simple ways to turn 2015 into your healthiest year yet.
Products that live in the bathroom are typically the ones you use most, so it’s the best place to start if you want to go down a more natural route. When it comes to everyday goodies like hand soap and body wash, you’ll want something that’s not only gentle on the skin, but hydrating and nourishing as well. We like Natural Instinct Hand Wash, because no matter how many times you need to wash your hands (damn that ‘drink more water’ resolution), they’ll stay nice and soft. For body wash, we couldn’t be more obsessed with Natures Care Organic Vanilla Ylang Ylang Moisturising Wash – the smell is delish.
Oh, and did you know that even your wax can be natural? Yep, the new Waxaway Aquawax Roll On Kit is made with an all-natural formula AND it’s vegan friendly. Follow your wax with a slathering of GAIA SKIN+BODY Body Moisturiser and your skin will feel silky smooth, minus the nasties.
Why does the new year have to kick off at a time when ciders and sliders in the sun is all the rage?
If you’re struggling to get back to your pre-silly season self (nobody can say no to a beach burrito), there are a few healthy tricks you can adopt in the kitchen to save you from falling off the bandwagon completely.
We recommend drinking a glass of water with NuZest in the morning. This will ensure you get your complete recommended dietary intake of fruit and veggies – all before leaving the house!
And regardless of whether you’re a masterchef or mix-it-and-go kind of gal, Isowhey’s range of wholefood superfoods will have something for you to bake, create or simply throw in the blender (#fitspo snaps optional).
The next time you clean out that never-ending hole us ladies call a handbag, spend some time ‘detoxing’ it. Once you’ve ditched the fun-size Snickers bar and twenty bobby pins, try swapping out your dusty lip-gloss for Natralus Natural Paw Paw Ointment. It will not only keep your lips completely kissable, but it’s also handy for emergency insect stings, rashes and sunburn.
Finally, meet your new on-the-go beauty staple: a tube of Glasshouse Kakadu Water Lily Hand & Body Crème. It smells divine, has a powdery finish and its packaging looks so good, you won’t even be embarrassed the next time you trip and spill your handbag contents, a la Carrie in Dior Paris.
