Pilates, yoga and meditation are my workouts of choice this time of year, okay maybe all year round but there’s definitely something about this time of year that makes me want to slow my body down and be mindful. I love beauty products and want to introduce you to Content. “Content is a boutique organic skincare store, naturopathic clinic, beauty salon and website at the forefront of the move towards organic and natural skincare and complementary therapies.” I asked Imelda Burke from Content to share her top 5 natural beauty products for Autumn workouts. I love number 5!
Imelda Burke of Content Shares Her Top 5 Natural Beauty Products for Autumn Workouts
With chilly weather fast approaching and grey skies becoming the norm, you may find your energy levels dipping and exercise the last thing on your mind. When you need a motivational boost for your workout nothing does it better than a little plant power! So I’ve put together a selection of my favourite organic beauty lotions and potions to assist you before and after your practice:
Lotus Wei Energy Mists: One of my all-time wellbeing essentials are these clever little mists. Made with therapeutic essential oils, flower remedies and gemstone essences, they enhance your state of mind. Mist some on your mat before a pilates or meditation session to clean your mat and ‘clear the air’: the Inner Peace Energy Mist is a perfect choice to deepen your practice
Lotus Wei Anointing Oils: Whilst the Lotus Wei Energy Mists are class and desk staple, I always carry with me the Anointing Oil versions in my handbag, which are more concentrated. They’re perfect to wear throughout the day and apply to pulse points when I need a little mood-altering boost. A favourite is Inspired Action for focus and motivation – perfect before an intense workout! As a tip: try combining both the oil and the mist variant for a powerfully transformative effect.
Tata Harper Soothing Muscle Gel: An all-natural alternative to Deep Heat. This gel is packed with organic ingredients including Arnica Extract, Lemon Peel, Ginger and Turmeric, which help reduce aches and pains, while, the refreshing scent of Blue Cypress helps you relax. Instant relief!
Weleda Massage Balm with Arnica: Treat yourself to a deep muscle massage with this aromatic oil. Thanks to therapeutic plant extracts of Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil of Arnica flowers and Birch, it provides an all-natural recovery balm and will restore and uplift you in no time.
Mantraband Bracelets: It’s been proven that mantras and positive affirmations are beneficial for wellbeing. So what better way to remind yourself of your favourite mantra, than actually wearing it? These mindful bracelets are cute reminders to ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’ or ‘Enjoy The Journey’ (amongst others). I’m currently wearing ‘Live What You Love’ but the collection is rapidly growing, as it’s fun to mix and match between silver, gold and rose gold versions.
