While many people start New Year’s resolutions in January, you can create a new routine and change things anytime. What better time to start a new routine and spring-clean your health than this month? It’s the perfect time to incorporate new habits into your daily routine to help you look and feel your best.
Look after your gut
Spring is the perfect time to incorporate more fresh fruit and vegetables into your diet. Add as many colourful vegetables to your plate along with lots of leafy greens packed with vitamins, minerals and micronutrients your body needs. Don’t forget about your gut. That’s where your healthy body and skin can start. Keeping your gut flora in balance is essential because if it’s out of balance, you may see breakouts on your skin and develop skin redness, dermatitis or stomach and digestion issues.
PlantYourDay by Hush & Hush is a plant-based vegan protein powder for optimal gut health and balanced skin. It gives long-lasting energy and a dose of fibre and is easy to digest. It doesn’t come with any negative effects typically found in other protein powders, including bloating, cramping or an upset stomach.
As the weather changes and the temperatures increase, your body can lose more moisture through sweating compared to in the winter. Staying hydrated is vital to avoid issues like fatigue, headaches and low energy. Try keeping a water bottle with you at all times, either in your bag or on your desk, that you can sip from and refill throughout the day.
While drinking water can hydrate from within, so too can SkinCapsule Hydrate+. This is formulated with clean clinical plant-based ingredients, including vegan hyaluronic acid, which will help to hydrate and plump the skin; aloe vera locks in moisture, Korean red ginseng hydrates and decreases inflammation levels, and CERAMOSIDES restores the skins ceramide content and increases the skin’s hydration and elasticity. SkinCapsule Hydarate+ also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in a month, plumping the skin for a more youthful look.
During spring, the days are getting longer and brighter, and it’s a great excuse to get outside more. Try going for a walk on your lunch break rather than sitting at your desk for your entire lunch break. Or, in the brighter evenings, get outside for a walk or a run. As the days get longer, so can your walks, so you can start with 20-minute sessions and build from there. Not only will this clear your head, but it will help to increase your endurance and stamina.
Protect your skin
With brighter warmer sunnier days on the horizon, it’s only natural that we’ll be outside more. We’ll be soaking up more vitamin D, which is good for bone health, strengthening the immune system and helping to boost your mood too. It’s essential to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays daily, even if it’s cloudy, so wear an SPF on any exposed skin and reapply every couple of hours if you’re out and about or sweating.
Have a good sleep schedule
In the lead-up to your bedtime, as tempting as it might be to scroll, try to put your phone away. Step away from all the screens and read a book, relax, unwind or try journaling.
A regular sleep routine can help you get good quality sleep to refuel for the day ahead. If you find that your mind is full of chatter as you’re going to sleep, writing out your To Do List in a notebook beside your bed can help along with taking Hush & Hush MindYourMind. This melatonin-free supplement relaxes the mind and body, helping you to fall asleep and stay asleep. It contains time-tested sleep aids like tryptophan, valerian root, holy basil leaf and magnesium. And because this has no melatonin, you won’t feel groggy the next morning, just well-rested and ready for the day ahead.
