Looking After Yourself

Your New Year Habit – Looking After Yourself!

It’s that time of year again and there’s something about the new year that makes us re-assess and put in place some new healthy habits, such as looking after yourself.

While sleep, diet and your beauty routine are vitally important there is one more thing you should be thinking about and that’s your wellbeing. How you feel about yourself. When you’re working hard, looking after your family and running around after other people it’s easy to forget you need looking after as well!

That’s why you should always give yourself some ‘me’ time. It might only be a precious 30 minutes, but, if you can take 30 minutes to do something just for you, then you’ll feel a whole lot better. 

What Can I do in 30 minutes I hear you say? Well how about:

A relaxing bath

Fill the bath with steamy warm water. Fill it with your favourite bath ingredient and then relax. Listen to a story on the radio, flick through your favourite magazine or listen to music. Leave your phone in the bedroom and tell anyone at home you don’t want to be disturbed. You can explain to them that it’s only going to be for 30 minutes so anything they have to say can wait that long.

Read a couple of chapters of a book

If you don’t have a book you haven’t read at home then spend your first free 20 minutes in the library or the bookshop and pick out a new novel. If this is a habit you’ve fallen out of, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to get back into. Switch off the TV for an hour, find a quiet corner with your book, or, if you don’t like reading try an audiobook or listen to something on the radio. 

Treat yourself to a Microdermabrasion session

We were obviously going to make this suggestion, weren’t we? But seriously, in 30 minutes you’ll not only feel fabulous and relaxed, but your skin will be rejuvenated. Microdermabrasion takes away dead skin cells and leaves your face looking fresher. The treatment also encourages better blood circulation and collagen growth, so over time your skin will be firmer and fine lines will be reduced.

Microdermabrasion treatment – What is it?

Microdermabrasion, meaning literally ‘small skin wearing away’ is an intense exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff away the very outer layer of skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment also benefits from a vacuum action which stimulates the micro-circulation and increases blood flow to the treatment area.

How to manage acne in the warmer, summer months…

We all suffer from acne breakouts from time to time, regardless of age or sex. One thing we are often asked about is why acne symptoms are worst in summer. While there can be many contributing factors, one key reason is that people with oily skin tend to suffer more heavily with acne, and oil production is at its highest in summer, hence – a higher likelihood of acne. In this blog, we explore how you can prevent outbreaks during the warmer, summer months.
