Cozy Self Care During The Winter Season

Cozy Self Care During The Winter Season

Just that 2 word little phrase, “self-care” can trigger many of us. I’m just going to jump right out and say it. Self-care is not selfish. In fact, it’s a requirement. ALWAYS, and I mean always, take time for yourself, especially during the holidays when things can get nuts! I like to use the analogy of the instructions your flight attendant gives you during the pre-flight safety demo. You are told to put your oxygen mask on FIRST before assisting other passengers. This is a great example of how necessary self-care is. Otherwise, you will be of use to no one, including yourself. Here are some cozy self-care rituals to try during the chilly winter months: Winter Weather Skincare Routine Make taking care of your skin a priority! This is easy to do and only takes a few minutes, pinky swear! Your skin needs a little more TLC during the winter months, when the weather tends to be more drastic. Be sure to wash your face morning and night. But, make sure you use a face wash that doesn’t contain ingredients that will irritate or dry out your skin.  Also, keep the water warm—you don’t want it too hot or cold. Kudarat has 2 great face washes, depending on your needs. Whichever you choose, your skin will be left thoroughly cleansed and naturally hydrated. To save time, you can wash your face while in the shower. And speaking of…don’t forget that skincare is from head to toe. A natural and moisturizing body wash is the way to go. Avoid formulas that contain sulfates and other harsh ingredients. Not only...

Avoid Petroleum and Mineral Oil in Your Skincare Products Like the Plague!

Avoid Petroleum and Mineral Oil in Your Skincare Products Like the Plague!

Do you ever think about what you are putting on your skin?   Truth be told, I never did, until I had to… Most people shop for their skin care based on packaging, advertising, or out of habit from what they’ve always used, but they rarely actually think about what they’re buying or what they are putting on their skin. Believe me, I’ll be the first to admit guilt. I used to be like a cat with a shiny object, going for the prettiest package that I was drawn to because I really didn’t have a clue otherwise. When comparing labels, they all looked pretty much the same to me. So, no judgement from me at all. But, before we dive into the controversial subject of mineral oil which is contained in a lot of those pretty products, let’s take a quick minute here to break things down.   Why you should avoid petroleum and mineral oil in your skincare products like the plague!   Our skin is our largest organ and it serves a very important duo of functions—to breathe in oxygen and to release toxins. You might’ve heard that certain chemicals and toxic ingredients that are probably in your skin care are harmful if ingested, but they can’t penetrate your skin, so you have nothing to worry about. That’s not necessarily true. Mineral oil is a great example. Okay, so that now brings us to mineral oil, which you might recognize as petroleum jelly (Vaseline)… It can show up on ingredients labels as mineral oil, petrolatum, liquid paraffin and paraffin oil. Regardless of what it’s called, there...
