CONSTANT CHAOS OF THE HOLIDAYS
We are in the thick of the holiday season with Christmas only a few days away now. The cold temperatures have hit, and the chilly winter air outside has everyone bundling up to try to stay warm. If you need some winter skincare tips to help fight against dry skin, check out our Winter Skincare Guide we posted last month.

While some people have already completed their holiday shopping and have presents wrapped and neatly tucked under their trees, the rest of us need all the luck we can get to brave the stores as we wrap up Christmas shopping. If you’ve been to the stores lately, you’ve noticed it’s a madhouse everywhere you go now. Everyone is frantically combing through isles to find something to buy for the last few people on their list. All of the holiday shopping chaos can wear you down, so make sure to check in with your own needs too. You can’t keep pouring from an empty cup.

GIVE YOURSELF A TIME OUT
It’s easy to get overwhelmed while you finish holiday shopping, wrapping presents, sending out Christmas cards, and baking for the school holiday parties. Keep the anxiety at bay by etching out a couple minutes each day to do something to take care of yourself. You’ve been working so hard non-stop to make all the holiday magic happen, and that’s a lot of work. If you need some resources to help with the stress of the holidays, check out our blog from last month for some quick and easy calming techniques that you can incorporate into your daily routine.

READING SKINCARE LABELS
Some simple self-care can go a long way to help take a break from all the busy-ness of the holiday season. While you wind down at the end of the day, cleanse your face and begin your evening skincare routine, take a second to read the labels on the skincare items you’ve been using. Many people think to look at food labels, but that’s not the only ingredient list you should be reading. When it comes to what we put on our skin every day, most people forget to check out those ingredients as well. Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and what you put on it matters.

SIMPLE INGREDIENTS YOU CAN TRUST
It can be intimidating at first glance if you’re not familiar with reading skincare ingredients, but we’ll help break it down for you. One easy thing to look for is a simple ingredient list that’s not a mile long. If you take a look at the reHEMP’s RENEW nighttime face oil, for example, you’ll notice it only contains 6 simple plant-based ingredients: Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Broad Spectrum CBD Extract, Organic Reishi Extract, Organic Lavender Essential Oil. It’s comforting when you find that you’re already familiar with most (or all) of the ingredients on a label. If you’re new to CBD skincare and want to learn more about it, check out our blog about CBD Skincare Game Changers.

CONCENTRATION MATTERS
It’s important to note that the ingredients are listed in order of concentration. The first 5 ingredients are what makes up the bulk of the product. After that, ingredients listed towards the bottom of the list have lower impact on the overall efficacy of the product. So if you notice a chemical-laden ingredient list with a bunch of hard-to-pronounce items at the top of the list with only a few natural ingredients towards the end, that should be a red flag. To learn more about what ingredients to avoid, check back later this month, and we’ll dive into the Dirty Five ingredients together.
