HOW TO GET GLOWING SKIN
All wise mermaids know that skin condition is dependent on the state of general health and wellbeing. We believe that finding the balance between mind, body and spirit ~ starts from within, by nurturing ourselves kindly. Fantastic skincare products will not be as effective if you are not sleeping well, stressed out, eating processed foods, drinking lots of alcohol and not doing any exercise. Take a multi-tiered approach with your self-care, starting with the basics.
We all need our beauty sleep to rejuvenate and revitalise body, mind and mermaid spirit. Epidermal recovery takes place when we are snoozing, so make sure you are getting good quality sleep.
Do this by ensuring the room isn’t too hot
Your bed is the most inviting it can be with your favourite linens
Turn off devices an hour before bedtime
Feel soothed by candlelight
Read something lovely to take your mind away from worries
Listen to recorded sounds of waves
Soak in a warm bath with a few drops of our Sea Goddess Bath oil
to calm your mind and relax the body to prepare for sleep
