What a year we’ve had in 2020 – but it’s nearly behind us, and with that comes all of our New Year’s resolutions and the kickstart of new health and fitness goals…. So, if like me, you’re sitting there saying “It’s a new year and I’m going to look after my body better in 2021” – then, you’re probably also asking where is the starting point for some easy things to adopt in your daily wellness routine? Read on….
Adopt water as your bestie!
The power of drinking water has been spoken about for years, but the merits in fulfilling your 8 glasses of water per day, also lend themselves to improved skin, better organ function, clearer concentration and focus, as well as flushing out toxins to alleviate the pressure on your system, regulating your temperature and helping maintain blood pressure. Commit to starting your day with a glass of water and squeeze some lemon in it to really kickstart your system and get a little Vitamin C boost, as the lemon is alkalising, and will also help detoxify your body, which in turn will help your digestion.
Vitamin D Boost
We’re all so sun-smart and savvy, conscious of harmful UV rays, but vitamin D deficiency is actually becoming more and more apparent in our community and with it comes many ailments…. We weren’t designed to live in the shadows!!! So, as part of your “new year, new you” routine, try and get 15 minutes of early morning, or late afternoon sun to help boost your vitamin D levels. Obviously, always wear sunscreen when out in the sun with an SPF 50+ factor, but don’t shy away from the sun’s rays, as vitamin D helps with hair growth, bone density, skin healing, back pain, wound healing, depression, immunity, and of course overall body wellbeing. Get some sun as part of your daily routine, and see if you get a cold in 2021 – it’s not called the sunshine vitamin for no reason!
Start drinking Collagen infused Tea!
You may have heard about the incredible health benefits of powerful antioxidants and polyphenols and the anti-ageing properties of tea for your skin and your overall wellbeing. Well, imagine a tea that is super-charged with the stimulatory effects of hydrolyzed collagen peptides to boost your skin, hair and nails! A great choice is Fusspot Collagen Beauty Tea, www.fusspottea.com with 11 formulated organic beauty teas infused with collagen and developed specifically to support your body and your skin. Adopt this daily routine as part of your everyday beauty regime morning and night, and if you haven’t heard about collagen at this point in time, you really need to get on the bandwagon! Collagen is the latest beauty buzz, which supports improved skin, hair, nails, gut health, tendon and joint health, and overall wellness – truly!
Another great beauty routine to adopt in the new year is regular exfoliation and even dry-body-brushing. The benefits of body and face exfoliation are many. Firstly, your skin is your largest organ, so look after it, and one of the most efficient ways for your body to get rid of toxins is through the skin, so slough off that rough, dead skin so your skin can breathe better. When you stimulate it with either an exfoliator or a dry-body brush, (and even with the motion), your skin is able to do this more effectively, especially if you sweat more from daily exercise. Find an organic exfoliator with ingredients that stimulate the skin like honey, cinnamon, coffee or oatmeal, and find a body brush that is made of soft hairs to massage the skin. Exfoliating and dry-body-brushing help to break down cellulite, cleanse the lymphatic system, aid digestion and strengthen the immune system. It makes your skin look and feel amazing, too – who doesn’t want smooth skin?! Get this into your weekly beauty routine and you’ll definitely notice the difference!!!
