OMni aligns itself with the Slow Beauty movement … a philosophy that includes the use of natural ingredients, a gentle attitude towards ageing, being mindful and eco-friendly, and above all ... being yourself.
Originating in California a few years ago, it is an extension of the Slow Living and Slow Food movements, and is about adopting a natural and holistic approach to taking good care of ourselves.
It asks us to think deeply about the products that we feed our bodies and to consider the products we put on our skin and whether they’re beneficial to us (and our environment) ... after all, our skin is the largest organ on the body. Slow Beauty can actually work on your skin to produce softer, healthier skin over time.
Here are a few ways you can begin to adopt a Slow Beauty life:
A NATURAL SKIN CARE REGIME
Use natural and nourishing skin care products to feed and restore your skin and allow it to glow; search for the ones you love and build your collection, one special product at a time.
DAILY RITUALS THAT BRING YOU JOY
Practise mindful self-care that leaves you feeling happy, whether it’s your favourite cup of herbal tea, finding a moment of solitude in the sun, a walk in fresh air/nature, or playing your favourite song.
EAT, MOVE, SLEEP, WATER
Aim for a focus on balance and good nutrition to support you being in the best health you can be … eat fresh seasonal produce, find a movement/exercise you enjoy, get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water.
EMBRACE THE AGEING PROCESS
Be gentle with yourself as you age, treat yourself with kindness … love your grey hairs, notice your wrinkles when you smile, nourish your ever more delicate skin and feed and support it.
REJOICE IN BEING YOU
In a world so busy and full of expectations, it can be difficult to just be you. Love, nourish and nurture yourself, let your smile reveal your inner beauty, and rejoice in being YOU.
