In this month's blog, we'll give you two words: self-care. Before you cringe, consider this statistic from the U.S: 67% of those surveyed prioritise taking care of others over themselves, while 1 in 3 feels guilty for taking care of themselves.
At Aldha, true to our brand commitment to personal holistic wellness, health & well-being, and sustainability, we are all about self-care. In our hot, balmy weather, self-care is even more important in Singapore. In this post, we'll talk about how you can pamper yourself this December.
It's well and easy to say, buy some great products and lather it on your face to call it 'self-care. But do you know that skincare ingredients can irritate you if you are not careful? This December, we recommend switching from mass-manufactured synthetic products to organic skincare to care for your skin effectively and naturally . Usually, mass skincare products use parabens, sodium laureth sulphates, synthetic chemicals, dyes, preservatives, fillers, petroleum-derived ingredients or artificial colours and fragrances. According to Singhealth, these chemicals cause allergic reactions, inflammations, or irritations. So most people choose organic to avoid harsh chemicals.Organic skincare products typically are free of such ingredients. If an allergic reaction does occur, it would most likely be due to a natural ingredient(such as peanuts or strawberries), which is easier to identify.
To gently nudge you on your organic skincare journey, try our star pick. The Bema Organic Nature Up Facial Cleansing Foam is an ultra-light cleansing foam enriched with organic grape skins, Sicilian lemons, organic wheat bran and Trentino apples, all extracted by bio-liquefaction. This foam will leave your skin clean, oxygenated and even skin complexion. And when you're done, finish with our second star product, Bema Organic Water Gel (Antioxidant and Moisturising) (30ml), to add a layer of gentle moisture. By the way, this stellar product won 'Best Gel Moisturiser', Cleo Beauty Award 2020.
If buying new products is too overwhelming for you, book a facial and let the Esthetician take care of you. Our Bema Organic Nature Up Essential Facial is now at $118.00 (Usual Up $180.00). Using natural products from the Bema Organic line, this 75 minutes facial is suitable for all skin types. It will help you relax and renew your skin with the unique new Nourishing Pumpkin Mask. You're in good hands since this facial is a Winner of Best Organic Facial in the 2020 Harper's Bazaar Spa Awards.
In all, pampering your skin is an excellent way to start your self-care routine, but only if you choose the right products to make the real difference.
Hot and humid Singapore means frequent washing of our hair. What are some recommended tips for hair care? Apart from skipping the heat treatment and dyeing it less often, if you notice your hair looks limp and lifeless, it could be a silicone buildup.
Silicone is a common ingredient in hair care products. Healthline states that silicone can build up on hair over time, resulting in weaker hair that is more prone to breakage.
This month, to start your haircare self-care routine, take the opportunity to try the shampoo, conditioner or treatment masks from the Bema Organic Bio Hair and Hair Pro lines, with all products now up to 30% off. Whether you are concerned about dandruff or getting fuller hair, there is something for all hair needs.
Bema Organic hair care products have a lot of benefits, but most importantly, they are formulated without Silicones and Synthetic Preservatives. The products use natural and organic ingredients from plant extracts, no chemicals, no synthetics, and certified ICEA Organic. For people with sensitive scalps, you can use them too as these products are dermatologically and microbiologically tested.
Finally, take a look around your work from home set up to boost your self-care. For most of us, it's been a long two years of working in our home offices. Even if you head back into the office, sprucing up your home will boost your mood.
We didn't make this up. Psychological studies show that home elements can elevate your moods. You are choosing the aesthetic to make you more productive. One pro tip we have is to search on Instagram or Pinterest for home trends you like and save them.
To start, perhaps revamp an essential part of our lives first: the way we drink water. Flaska Glass has water jugs and even fruit bowls for your office and home to restructure and transform the water you drink to healthier spring-like water. And now it's 20% off!
Skin, hair, home - when you take care of all these, you'll feel better, and it helps you take care of other people better too. After all, you can't pour from an empty cup. If you want to nudge someone (maybe Mom, Dad or your spouse?) on their self-care journey, the products above make great gifts. Aldha is also offering a gift with every purchase over $150 and other selected items. Check out our store now.
