Enjoying a slower pace of living has numerous health benefits; research suggests it can even add years to your life. But in this fast paced world, can we really just switch off on our travels?
Whether it’s for your mental health or general wellbeing, taking time out of your day to focus on yourself is essential, why should it be any different when you’re on the go? These are Citizen Femme’s 5 wellness products to keep you calm while travelling – from products to help with meditation and down-time to skincare.
Nourish your skin
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm
Emma Hardie’s Moringa Cleansing Balm is the ultimate in skin nourishment. Your skin needs extra support when it finds itself in a new climate and this balm offers that layer of protection. Light and fragrant, it works on all skin types and is soothing enough for skin prone to redness and acne.
Use this balm in the morning and evening when travelling. In the evening, massage it into your face before taking a bath. The moringa scent is the perfect wind-down aroma to inhale before you doze off.
Calm your mind
Temple Spa Quietude Calming Mist
This mist has the ability to make you feel like you’re in a spa, wherever you are. Spritz it whenever you feel a little stressed, such as on the plane or in the airport. It instantly lifts the mood and cocoons you in a relaxing experience. The aromas, which range from lavender to frankincense, create a calming scent for stressed travellers. It can also be sprayed in the room to encourage a good night sleep.
Invigorate your skin
Bloomtown Botanicals Sugar Scrub
Bloomtown Botanicals is vegan, cruelty-free and palm-oil free. This sugar scrub is made from scratch and only contains natural exfoliants, which means that your skin is being treated with the highest quality ingredients. And with a bit of brand integrity thrown in for good measure.
When you’ve been in a different climate or environment, be that tropical sun or a busy city, it’s key to take time to exfoliate and restore your skin, because travelling can cause stress to it.
Cure home sickness
Unherd Co Handmade Soy Wax Candles
A true wellness experience wouldn’t be complete without a candle. There are many reasons to opt for soy wax candles over paraffin, but perhaps the most important is the cleaner burning. This candle’s aroma is so calming and knowing it’s non-toxic makes the experience even better.
The Black Fig scent is a mixture of earthy and zesty. The scent of amber makes wherever you are in the world smell cosy and inviting. This is a great one to take with you if you’re prone to home sickness.
Find comfort in new surroundings
KIEHL’S Midnight Recovery Concentrate
To feel calm the next day, a good night sleep is essential. But, it’s not always easy when you’re in unfamiliar surroundings. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate not only replenishes your complexion, its blend of essential oils aids with jetlag and with getting your beauty sleep.
This concentrate is a bit of a cult product with good reason; it gets to work within one night. It replenishes the skin with moisture – which is even more crucial if you’re travelling, and it’s 100% recyclable.
Now that you’ve got your skin and mindfulness covered, here are Citizen Femme’s best reads to improve your wellness.
