The art of “cocooning”
Here we are: January! Holidays are over, the weather is cold and we need some good “cocooning” time.
This is the right time to reset our system and our skin. We might have indulged in food and drinks during the festive days and now we can experience a general sense of bloatiness and dry skin.
Let’s keep faith to our new year’s resolutions and start 2024 with a cleaner and lighter diet to help our body regenerating from the inside.
Yes to fresh veggies juices, celery is a good option to clean up and remineralize the system. Fennel, eaten raw or in juices, helps to get rid of bloatiness. Citrus are a very good source of vitamin C that helps to prevent seasonal ailments and gives glow to our skin.
Opt for steamed seasonal veggies with whole grains and pulses: a nice dressing to drizzle over veggies can be a life changer. My favorite dressing always includes fresh lemon juice: from the most quick and easy lemon-evoo-tamari to lemon-tahini-garlic which is creamy and very satisfying (my favorite!).
In the evening choose a “cocooning” soup: it will warm you up and it will give hydration to your body.
Speaking of hydration: do you drink enough water? In the cold weather it’s easy to forget to drink water but heaters, wind and extreme cold are dehydrating factors for the body and the skin. So keep your water bottle on your desk, in your bag, in your car.. and sip plenty of water during the day.
It is very important to protect our skin from the elements with the right products, to avoid the water loss. Le Blue Balm by Odacité is the perfect place to start, its pleasant melting texture, its relaxing aroma and the precious ingredients make it the perfect “cocooning” face treatment.
