We're continuing our celebration of National Wellness Month by sharing a step-by-step self-care ritual that will leave your hair nourished, your skin glowing, and your body feeling light and energized. Ready to get started?
STEP 1 - MASK IT UP
Apply our UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque onto your hair, top it with a shower cap if you have one, then put on your go-to face mask or favorite sheet mask, and soak it all in. A cup of herbal tea or a glass of wine isn't required, but is certainly recommended.
Formulated to have 5X the essential amino and fatty acids for ULTRA repair, reconstructing, and restoral power, the UltraRepair treatment is a powerhouse for soothing damage, strengthening, sealing split ends, and preventing moisture loss, while protecting against future damage. It promotes healthy, shiny, and silky hair, and its scintillating citrus scent makes for a refreshing aromatherapeutic experience.
Our SmartBody Foaming Wash provides gentle cleansing while infusing essential nutrients to leave skin moisturized, smooth, soft and radiant. This amazing sulfate-free moisturizing cleansing foam is concentrated and long lasting, and is better for our planet when going down the drain.
Now is also the time to rinse off your face mask and rinse UltraRepair out of your hair. Follow with your favorite EVOLVh shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner (first thing out of the shower).
STEP 4 - APPLY OIL & GIVE YOURSELF A LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
In case you're unfamiliar with this wellness trend, manual lymphatic drainage encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. But it's no fad - lymphatic drainage massage has actually been a beauty secret among women in Latin & South American countries for decades, and has recently become popularized the world over thanks to health and wellness experts singing its praises and making it accessible to all. This affordable and straightforward method of detoxifying the body has helped many connect back to their bodies across all stages of their lives.
The benefits of lymphatic drainage are extensive, mainly in the transport and removal of stagnant fluids, but it also:
Stimulates blood circulation and tissue regeneration
Directs and increases lymphatic flow, promoting faster removal of excess interstitial fluid
Reduces swelling and water retention
Improves the immune system due to the important elimination of toxins
Minimizes the appearance of cellulite by reducing the amount of fluid that presses up against the cross-hatched fibers beneath your skin
Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be performed by a licensed professional in a spa setting, but is super simple to do as an at-home DIY treatment - all you'll need is a natural oil for some slip and a wooden paddle tool like this one.
Last but not least... envelope your body in a dreamy luxurious cloud of refreshing citrus. Our SmartBody Butter is a nourishing and moisturizing repair treatment that offers the highest concentration of unrefined shea butter (an anti free-radical super ingredient) to increase elasticity and circulation, while reducing the appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, acne, and scarring, all while evening out skin tone. It’s also non-comedogenic, non-greasy, and gentle enough even for those with skin allergies. All these benefits are punctuated by the light, clean, and divinely delicious, soft scent of grapefruit.
From here you can follow your usual skincare routine (or add some extra steps) and you'll be glowing from hair to toes in no time!
