In these challenging times, we could all use a little pick-me-up. Today, we bring you four easy ways to bring your spirit up and make your day better.

Set The Mood: Upbeat Playlist

These tunes are keeping our spirits up during lockdown and some of them have us dancing around our kitchen!

 

 

 

Home Workouts: 

Elite trainers all over the world are motivating us to stay fit with great at-home workouts. Here are some of our favorites!

Unwind: 

  • It starts with the breath. ‘Inhale for four, exhale for four and don’t worry if you have some thoughts – just keep coming back to the breath.’ Lauren Wolk-Goldfaden
  • Take time before bed to unwind, pamper and recharge. Switch off your phone, slip on a pair of luxurious silk pajamas, light a relaxing candle and dive into that book you’ve been meaning to read for months.
  • Epsom Salt Baths – take 15 min for yourself and soak into a hot epsom salt bath to relax your muscles and calm your nerves.
  • Drink hot water with Lemon: It helps detoxify your body and it’s soothing at the same time.

At-Home Facial: 

This is the time to spend on YOU! Learn how to enhance and maximize your at-home regimen and view our virtual workshop, At-Home Beauty with GOLDFADEN MD!

You can watch the video, listen to the audio, and check out the complete product list in Holisticism’s Liminal Library.

Since we are not going to get our regular facials, our Doctor’s Scrub + Doctor’s Scrub Advanced are our go-to right now to keep our complexions glowing.

The best skincare routines and being diligent about proper daily cleansing is key to glowing skin, but if you’re not aware of some of the most common daily habits that could be running your skin, it does not matter what you put on. We’ve dug deep to highlight these common daily skin busters that could be the culprits that lead to those unwanted breakouts.

Gym workouts are beneficial for your overall health, but the machine surfaces and ground are filled with acne causing bacteria. Try not to touch your face during your workout and wash your hands immediately afterwards.

Tip: We love these Yes to Carrots new all-natural fragrance-free antibacterial wipes – they should be part of every gym bag!
You may not be lactose intolerant, but dairy contains hormones that trigger the oil glands to go into overdrive, causing breakouts. Try going dairy free for a few weeks and watch your skin become luminescent.
Tip: Supplement your dairy with Almond Milk-based products; they’re delicious and lower in calories.
Cell phones can carry a lot of bacteria because they get put on many dirty surfaces. Every time you hold your phone to your face that bacteria is transferred onto your skin.
Tip: Invest in headphones and these Bose headphones are one of our favorites.
Think your foundation is causing you to break out? Think again, dirty makeup brushes carry bacteria that leads to breakouts. Make sure to clean your brushes regularly and wipe off the top layer of your foundation to ensure that you are keeping it bacteria-free.
Tip: The Beauty Department featured this recent post that we now follow – featuring an all-natural DIY brush cleaner that is super easy and extremely effective.
Think again when you want to grab those tweezers inside your drawer. They carry loads of acne-causing bacteria that spreads like wild fire when using them to pluck those unwanted hairs.
Tip: Disinfect your tweezers with rubbing alcohol right before you pluck your eyebrows, and do it every single time.
