Chill! – Ways to Rest and Relax

We’re all people, and we’re no strangers to pressure.

Long days, stressful traffic, you get the idea. After a long night out, or when the entire week is done hanging off your shoulders we’d want to kick back and just let it all loose.

But how?

If the days were spent doing complicated things, it’s usually better to keep it simple. Here’s a list of things we’d like to do during our free time.

Reading

  • Cheesy chick reads? Sci-fi? Spy novels? Sign me up! Depending on what you read, it could help with rebalancing the chemicals in your brain from imagining the stories that happen in books!

Sitting in bed

  • Set up the incense or essential oils(lavender’s my fave) and let the aroma take over the room. A few drops would be just enough.
  • Turn down the lights. Bright lights can be stressful on the eyes and prolonged exposure contributes to migraines.
  • Whip up a coffee/hot chocolate! Foam is good.

  • Enjoy!

Turn off electronic devices(just for a while)

  • It’s hard getting any peace during your free time when you’re constantly connected. Take a break!
  • Turn off the TV, cell, computer and walk for a little. You’ll realise how much liberty is at your disposal. It helps with the destressing!

Sing

  • No better way to get in touch with yourself better than to sing. Pick a song, turn it up and let it out. Besides, you’re at home.
  • It’s okay to read lyrics, we don’t judge. 😛

Play an instrument

  • Something that requires a little focus and learning takes a little while to get used to, but after a while you’d learn to tap into your inner musician.
  • By tuning the world out, you learn to tune in too! Play away!

Meditation

  • When there is noise all around you, take a seat and clear your mind. Like an instrument, you learn to focus on what matters(like what’s for dinner) and your environment will appear before you in a fresher perspective.
  • Deep breaths, tuning it all out, all of which will improve your mental health by reminding you that there is more to life than what is in front of you.

There are many ways in which you could help yourself relax in the face of stress, just remember that you are your own master, and that you decide what’s best for your health, both in and out.

The Thing About Sheet Masks

In this day and age, South Korea is known all across the modern world for their upkeep of pretty women(and men) that appear in their music videos and media, and it has got people wondering, what is their secret to beauty?

Hmm…what could it be?

South Korea has been hard at work, developing numerous beauty products across the spectrum for one of the most demanding markets in the world in a race for perfect skin. Fun fact: a majority of Korean women are super picky on what beauty products they use,

think of them like quality-control in South Korea. The ladies keep high standards when it comes to putting anything on their faces.

Sheet masks are but one of many products developed, bearing some of the many features that attribute to a major fanbase who love a fast-paced lifestyle, seeing a major growth in popularity ever since it has been introduced to the west.

Today we’ll be featuring our brand, Mediheal, as it’s one of the most popular and accessible masks in South Korea.

A single full-faced sheet mask has enough nutrients and hydration to keep a skin glowing for days, with good masks being able save time by packing an almost complete facial experience.

Read on for an effective method on using a sheet mask!

Today we feature one of our popular products

The typical sheet mask is made of cotton fabric(the best ones being made from hydrogel and biocellulose, more to come!), folded and packed into a handy package, and soaked in a potent, skin-nourishing serum.

Mmm…skin food.

Regular users typically cleanse and prepare their face before unfolding and applying the mask, allowing the pores to have a good soak for about 20 – 25 minutes.

The rest of the serum is not wasted, as every drop from the packaging is applied onto open skin besides the face.

After 20 – 25 minutes, the mask is discarded, and depending on the user’s skin type, they may choose to wash off any excess serum. At this point, a newfound radiance should shine right through.

As an added advice, masks should typically be used once every few days to avoid wearing out your skin, since sheet masks are technically skin food, it would be wise to have just enough of a good thing.

If this sounds like a good way to pass the time and clock in the extra glow, we’re more than happy to help!

Til then, happy masking!
