I’ve titled this blog ‘Top 5 Skin Essentials To Take Anywhere’, but in truth, I am the worst for keeping my wallet, keys and phone together on me, let alone anything else. So as you read this, keep in mind that what I really mean is ‘Top 5 Essentials I Keep at Home, Work, My Car and in my Gym Bag’. Then I’m covered.
As the weather is colder, it’s important to keep your lips hydrated. Avoid soreness, redness, and dry skin by having lip balm at hand. Even during the warmer months, air-conditioning can dehydrate you. There are few things less attractive than dry lips, so do yourself a favour here. I prefer an SPF balm so that I avoid damaging UV rays.
Reusable Water Bottle
Keep yourself hydrated! It’s important for clear skin to ensure that you’re well hydrated. Keeping your water intake up is good not just for healthy and clear skin, but also for energy, concentration, digestion and general wellbeing. Keep a reusable water bottle at hand, which means a BPA free bottle designed to be reused, not a plastic disposable bottle that you continually refill. These pose a health risk over time as UV light and repetitive rinsing and washing breaks down their plastic.
Snacks – healthy snacks!
Keep a tub of unsalted nuts at work, or home, for an easy and light snack. They’re a great source of fibre, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids and are a flavoursome and guilt free option! IF you’re anything like me, you’ll be a grazer, and so it’s good to ensure you at least have a good option to enjoy when you can’t resist some food.
Need I explain why? I’d suggest keeping one at work, but then if you’re in an office job like myself, it probably wouldn’t be conducive to productivity. However keeping one at hand for a break probably isn’t a bad idea. I’m lucky enough to have a bean bag in my office that I can throw myself into at times of despair, and a stress ball wouldn’t go astray at these times.
A surprising and wonderful side benefit of SkinB5 Supplements, besides clear skin, is that it can help to reduce stress. This is achieved by balancing hormones and providing essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
