Ohana CBD, a plant based skincare company that puts your wellbeing first, has been collecting stories about love between friends, family and partners and sharing them on Instagram if you want to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit – go check them out here @ohanacbd.Here are their favourite ways to indulge in self love with skincare:
- Have a bath
Fill the bath up. Soak your feet and let the warmth of the bubbles, bath salts and oils aborb throughout your entire skin. Let the music play as you drift away.
Check out Ohana’s Chill Bath Vibes Spotify playlist for you to listen your way into relaxation.
Maybe light candles? Grab your favourite book? Pop on a recommended podcast? Enjoy pure indulgence.
2. DIY face mask for Tired, Dry Skin Winter time means dry, cracking skin. Here’s a recipe to restore and repair with full hydration:
- 1 Lemon (squeeze it up!)
- 2 Tb Sugar
- 2 Tb Olive Oil
Mix all ingredients together until it becomes like a paste. The lemony sugar combo will help to exfoliate the skin. Be careful of sensitive spots and your eyes! The olive oil is a natural way to deeply feed thirsty, dry skin.
Keep it on for around 15 minutes. Use a cloth and warm water to remove.
3. Try a jade roller
Jade rolling has long been thought to reduce skin inflammation and puffiness. A cold roller can stimulate the lymphatic system and blood circulation, which helps to brighten complexion. Check out some tips on how to use and practice – we love the quick videos @face.goddess.yoga provide!
4. Massage gratitude into your face
Indulging in a soothing facial massage is easy. Using a smooth serum like Ohana’s Daily Protect Serum, rub small circles around your face. Concentrate on any areas that may feel tense, like the forehead, jawline, and around the eyes. With each breath, exhale any tensions you hold onto. Use this time to inhale in appreciation and gratitude.
5. Schedule in a Virtual Spa Day
Time to treat yourself to some rest and relaxation! Book in a time to create an at-home spa. Soak in the bath with bath bombs or bath salts. Take a hot shower. Indulge in some ultra-hydrating moisturiser with a full body massage. Clear out your pores with some steam (boil hot water, place in bowl, be extra careful, an open up the pores!). Put on a face mask (maybe the DIY one!).
And of course, don’t forget the option for an ice bucket or ice cold shower. It’s thought to have various mental health benefits, including mood-boosting abilities, so don’t leave without braving the freezing cold splash.
6. Practice Face Yoga!
We put our eye area through a lot of daily stress, from applying makeup to dragging products over skin. Show your eyes some TLC today. Use your ring finger to apply products (try Ohana’s Night Repair Oil) in a dabbing motion and refrain from stretching the delicate skin. Check out our IG video for a 45 minute tutorial! Also, apply a few cucumber slices while you relax in the bath or just before bed to cool and soothe tired eyes – pampered peepers, indeed!
7. Make a superfood skincare smoothie
Treat your body well on the inside and your skin will glow. Blend up a smoothie containing nutritious ingredients for brighter, clearer skin. Here’s what you need:
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Lime
- 1/2 Cup of your preferred dairy-free milk (we love hemp milk!)
- A Handful of spinach
- A handful of frozen berries (the more blueberries, the better! Lots of antioxidants)
- A handful of mango (frozen or fresh)
- Ice cubes
Enjoy the delicious benefits!
8. Seek fresh air
Take advantage of days getting longer. When the sky is blue, use it as a reminder to get outside for some fresh air. Detox your lungs and detox that body. Trees and plants naturally cleanse the air, and by avoiding pollution and indulging in fresh air, your skin could benefit as well as your mental health. Taking a break away from the city smog, and getting outdoors, helps you get back to you. Your body, mind and skin will say thank you!
9. Focus on forgotten areas – the feet!
As a reminder of the body parts that help us to stay grounded, take some time to say thank you. Treat your feet to a soak and a scrub! Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to focus on those areas of the body that tend to be missed. Wrap your feet up in some thick, hydrating lotion before bed. Put some socks on to maximise absorption.
10. Declutter skincare for a clear mind
Too much clutter can be bad for the mind, so today, go Marie Kondo on your skincare collection. If you have gathered a number of products over time, go through each one and keep only what you need. Check the expiration date, too.
Instead of just throwing good products away, turn your early spring clean into an eco-friendly skincare-swap with friends. Then, treat yourself for V-Day to the products you actually want and need to help benefit your skincare goals.
Share the love!
