The Importance of Relaxation

Relaxation...its good for your overall health

Pretty in Pink Spa Halloween Party
It seems these days we are always on the go. We’ve got to go to work, the grocery store, get the kids, take them to practice, go to their games, get to the gym, cook dinner, prepare lunches, the list goes on and on. It almost seems selfish to think that we deserve to relax.
Well I am telling you, you deserve to relax and here is why: Stress can lead to a whole bunch of different health problems. 
 Our bodies were not designed to be as stressed as they are these days. Think about it, the only time our caveman ancestors were stressed out is when they were threatened by a predator. Their bodies would enter “fight or flight” mode, meaning their normal organ systems were shut off as adrenaline spiked to get them out of the stressful situation. Once they found safety, the stress response would turn off and all would go back to normal. This is not the case these days. Since we are always so stressed out, our bodies never fully come out of this “fight or flight” mode which compromises our digestive system, our detoxification functions, as well as our immunity. When our body is busy trying to get itself out of the “stressful” situation, it doesn’t have time to fight off the flu or even the common cold!
Stress can cause:
  • depression/anxiety
  • acne
  • wrinkles/fine lines
  • stroke
  • high blood pressure
  • obesity
  • diabetes
  • many others
Have I convinced you yet?
Good.
Here are 5 ways to start incorporating more relaxation into your life:
  1. Have a hot bath at the end of the day with some epsom salts, a candle and maybe even a glass of wine!
  2. Go for a massage. Release the tension that has built up in your muscles.
  3. Sip a cup of herbal tea.
  4. Meditate. Use an app such as Insight Timer if you need some guidance.
  5. Aromatherapy. Put a few drops of some lavender essential oil into a diffuser and feel the stress melt away!
Taking some time for relaxation is not only the least selfish thing you could do for yourself, it is also going to help you be your best self.

Day Two of SpaMas~Kim’s Favourite Picks

I am all about having Smooth, Glowing Skin!

Pretty in Pink Spa Halloween Party

cloud balmI absolutely love the new Fitglow Beauty Cloud Balm. It has plant-based hyaluronic acid, cloudberry and meadowfoam in it which intensely hydrates my skin. It is a smooth, whipped formula that feels almost like a hug for my skin, yet it absorbs quickly so it doesn’t feel too thick. 

 

 

firmskinacaimasque_5in_hrÉminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is a must in my skincare routine as it gently exfoliates my skin while providing added benefits that leave my skin glowing. It cleans my pores while nourishing my skin. That is what I love about Éminence Products, they do what they say they do and more!

 

In addition to my home skincare routine, I also make it a point to go for facials on a regular basis. I understand the importance of doing so in order to give my skin a deep cleanse and healthy glow. I recently discovered Éminence Facials on the spa menu at Pretty in Pink Spa. From all the spas I have been to over the years, this has by far been the most enjoyable experience to date. I highly recommend them!

Day 2 of Spa-Mas – Shauna’s Favourite Picks

I can’t live without my Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant!

Pretty in Pink Spa Halloween Party

strawberry_rhubarb_dermafoliantI can’t live without my Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant! I start each day by adding a shake of the gentle daily-use scrub to an Éminence cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling luscious and prepped for maximum results from my morning skincare products, and especially smooth for an even all-day makeup application. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to add the Éminence Citrus Lip Balm to anyone’s stocking as a perfect pout primer in the morning and as a treatment at bedtime. I would also add in glo-minerals suede lip crayon in demure – the perfect winter neutral that is matte but also moisturizing! Then layer overtop the Glo-Minerals Cream Glaze lip crayon in Heirloom for subtle shine.

firmskinacaimasque_5in_hrIf the stocking still has room, I would definitely toss in my favourite moisturizer of all time – the Éminence Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer and Masque. This leaves my skin feeling so nourished all year. In the Summer, I emulsify with Éminence Stone Crop Mist for a soothing light finish. And in our harsh Canadian Winter, I add a drop of Éminence Rosehip Triple C + E Firming Oil for deeper hydration. 

As a Co-owner of a Chiropractic and Natural Health Clinic, I think very seriously about how I treat my body, what I put into my body, and as an extension of that, I also take very seriously what I put on it, too!  I love these products because their ‘pure’ values are so aligned with my health goals. It is simply the natural choice for radically healthy beauty. 

When I shop I like to invest in quality over quantity – so I really like that Sonia has selected products that are beautifully sourced, but also results driven. You don’t need a lot, when you find what’s right for you.

When I started using customized products from Pretty in Pink, I was so excited when my thoughtful beauty choices got noticed, and people were starting to comment on my new ‘glow’.
