This month it’s all about LOVE. Loving yourself, in your skin, and embracing your unique beauty. We’ve rounded up all our current obsessions and a couple of awesome recipes for you to try out at home. Let us know your thoughts on social media!
What we’re listening to
Abcdefu by GAYLE🎶
Valentine’s Day can be a hard time of year if you’re single or have recently ended a relationship. Everyone can relate to this break-up song whether you’re going through one now or just reminiscing about the one who broke your heart years ago. It’s the perfect song to scream sing in your car on your way to a Girl’s Night Out with your friends.
Rom Coms 🎞️
Hard to avoid leading up to Valentine’s Day and oh so loveably predictable. Rom Coms are the Hallmark Christmas movies of February where you know the two leading characters are going to get together in the end but you still want to watch and see how it all unfolds. Tonight we’re cuddling up with a hot herbal infusion and watching our favorite stars fall in love. Which romantic comedy is your favorite?
It’s the stereotypical gift of Valentine’s Day…that heart-shaped box of chocolates that Forrest Gump so famously compares life to. Chocolate boosts the chemical transmitters in our brain that make us feel happy and calm but it isn’t always the best for our skin health. Full of dairy and sugar, chocolate can aggravate skin and cause unwanted blemishes. If you’re a chocolate lover like us, but you’re worried about a post-V-day breakout, stick to dark chocolate which has less dairy and sugar than other types, or even better try the superfood raw cacao nibs which are packed with vitamins that are beneficial for your skin.
What we’re sipping
Champagne with fresh berries or Berry Mocktail
We love the bubbles and burst of berry flavor by tossing a few fresh strawberries or raspberries in our favorite glass of champagne, but if your dry January turned into sober February then try this Sparkling Berry Mocktail instead!
Sparkling Berry Mocktail (serves 2)
- 2 fresh strawberries
- 10 fresh raspberries
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 can cold sparkling water of your choice
Muddle the berries and sugar together until you get a paste-like jam and add evenly to the bottom of each champagne flute. Pour the sparkling water over top and garnish with a fresh berry. Enjoy!
Post-workout Cleanse 🚿
Recently we shared some of the skincare no-nos so many of us are guilty of making at the gym. Basically, if you’re not immediately cleansing your face post-workout then you’re not doing your skin any favors. By letting sweat dry on your skin, the impurities and toxins released through your pores sit on your skin causing irritation and odor, and can even be reabsorbed causing blocked pores and nasty breakouts. Our favorite way to combat this is by gently blotting sweat and dirt away with a clean 100% Cotton Dry Wipe throughout your workout, and then properly cleansing post-workout to avoid acne breakouts and future skin issues. Even if you don’t shower post-workout, cleansing your face is a must! Kubwipes 100% Natural Cotton Dry Wipes are the perfect wipes to take with you on the go to cleanse your skin from anywhere and our cute Mini Box is the perfect size to throw in your gym bag to replace your dirty gym towel.
Galentines Get Together 🎉💘
Whether you plan a chill night in with the girls or decide to have a fun night out on the town, spending quality time with your friends is a great way to boost your mood and recharge. It’s very common for people’s happiness levels to plummet in winter when it’s cold and dark and they say laughter is the best medicine. Rather than sending memes and updates to each other in your group chat, have some quality, in-person conversations and reconnect this weekend!
