Have you heard of #BlueMonday? It’s the third Monday in January (that’s today! Can you believe it?) and the day that we feel most miserable – likely because the fun of the holidays has long faded, we’ve possibly already broken our New Year’s Resolution and even though we know it’s not true, winter seems to be here to stay!
I know more than anyone how the blues can suck you in, and once you’re under, boy is it ever hard to get out. But there’s hope. Here’s a mini-survival guide to help you perk up your beauty routine, fight those winter blahs and skip the blues this year!
Sit & soak
Take some time to de-stress after the holidays are over and focus on relaxing with a candle-lit bubble bath. Add your favourite essential oil to your bath water and play spa-inspiring music in the background to help you enter a total state of Zen.
Give your body a boost with a healthy beverage
Keep your immune system protected and your body energized by drinking hot lemon water in the morning for a calming start to your day. Consider a healthy smoothie with extra fruits and veggies for a lunch-time boost!
Keep your smile fresh and white
Everyone feels more confident with whiter and brighter teeth. A true multi-tasking beauty product, Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Toothpaste will help you achieve a radiant smile in just 5 days!* You can also take deep cleaning to a new level with the Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Battery-Powered Toothbrush for 100% more plaque removal versus a manual toothbrush, whitening and the ultimate freshening experience!
Thank your skin this winter
Just because it’s the middle of winter doesn’t mean you should give up on your sense of summer. After all, Noshember is done and gone. I realy on easy, fast and ready-to-use, new Nair™ Wax Ready-Strips to give me that summer feeling even when there’s snow on the ground. Put on a movie and get to waxing – ready-to-use, no warming or rubbing required** and beyond! Your skin—and your bed buddy—will thank you for all the silky smoothness.
Go to a hot yoga class
Getting in a good workout is a great way to jump-start your week. Take five from your day, grab a girlfriend and focus on your mind, body and spirit at a hot yoga class. You’ll sweat out the stress, stretch out dormant muscles and leave feeling rejuvenated to face the rest of the season! Can’t stand the heat? Any yoga class will do. Trust me, the zen I get from an hour long namaste session has saved my sanity.
