The September Reset Pt. 2: Body Care

by

Swimming, hiking, sunbathing, food, and wine tasting: during the summer our body goes through a lot. Those amazing memories are precious, but they can result in a big stress for the skin...

That’s why it’s so important for us to dedicate the first half of September to cleansing and detoxifying rituals both for the mind and for the body. Active ingredients, potent formulas, and soothing ceremonies to purify the body and reveal a glowy, healthy appearance. Here is The September Reset Pt. 2: Body Care.

Try Intermittent fasting

After a summer of relaxing and indulgence it's easy to feel a little sluggish, bloated, and in need of a little detox. This is the best time to try Intermittent Fasting. If you're new to this practice, you must try Ancient + Brave True MCT Oil: this oil is clean, light and flavourless and entirely sourced from coconuts and extracted without the use of solvents and chemicals. MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are saturated fatty acids which rather than being stored, tend to be quickly absorbed, converted into ketones and utilised in cellular metabolism and energy production. An amazing fuel source for brain cells, especially during fasting.

Boost your Collagen Production
And what if we told you it is as easy as drinking a cup of delicious hot chocolate? Ancient + Brave Cacao + Collagen is a blend of luxury Peruvian raw cacao combined with glowing amounts of highly absorbable, hydrolyzed collagen peptides. With organic adaptogenic ashwagandha to help build stress resilience, nutrient diverse baobab, sweet earthy beetroot plus carob and cinnamon for a hint of natural sweetness. Each serving provides a rich source of fiber to support digestive function and gut microbiome and an excellent source of protein.
Fight the bloat
Create a routine of specific supplements designed to help your digestion and guarantee a healthy energy flow. Anima Mundi has created a natural way to detox your body called Viridem Elixir: A highly cleansing formula with some of the most iron rich greens. These superfoods are high potency mineralizers, with the power to oxygenate the blood, while expelling toxic build-up.The high chlorophyll content supports the Liver by digesting old fat, releasing bad oils, dispelling inflammation and bringing in potent nutrient chemistry.
Drink more
And you guessed it, sadly for the month of September, we refer to strictly water. But if you enjoy a little tasty treat, why not trying tea. Treat yourself to the gorgeous Susanne Kaufmann Tea Trio: Three selected teas for inner beauty, relaxation, and health, including best-sellers Acid Alkalizing Tea, Refreshing Tea, and Immune Tea.
Sleep better
I know, this sounds easy. But you won’t believe how much a regular sleep pattern can influence our overall wellbeing. A great way to unwind and get ready for bed in autumn is a warm, hot bath. The Susie Mermaid Sea Goddess Marine Retreat Bath Oil is a warm aromatic ocean-inspired treat. Detoxifying spirulina blends with mood-boosting rosemary and thyme, while nourishing safflower infuses skin with minerals, nutrients, and essential fatty acids for a therapeutic bath time retreat. For a Spa Feel, try Susanne Kaufmann St. John's Worth bath: delicate bath crystals that completely dissolve in the water and create a wonderfully velvety sensation on the skin. This light bath comforts and nourishes the skin while relieving the effects of environmental influences such as stress, dry heater air, or sunburn. 
 
Nourish your skin
Autumn is a great moment to incorporate some nourishing formulas into your rotation. After choosing lightweight creams and serums in the summer, in September we should stick to nourishing Oil formulas. Seed to Skin The Serenity is a super antioxidant, restorative body oil instantly absorbed by the skin. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids the oil leaves the skin nourished for up to 24 hours. And for a fuzzy, comforting feel, try Uka Body Hug Oil: with precious Cyanara oil and argan oil for fr a firm, radiant skin. The blend of ylang-ylang, black pepper, mandarin orange, and yuzu essential oil is effective for filing your heart with kindness or evoking the feeling you get when hugging a loved one or a pet.
