Monday morning vibes are going on over here. Feeling super motivated this morning as I head over to the salon to tidy and begin the prep to return to work in…. drum roll please…..2 WEEKS TODAY (Boris pending). Feeling super motivated is not something that always comes naturally to me. I sometimes feel that life runs away with me. Can you relate? After the 12 months we have had, we have all had to adapt in some way to the new normal. For us in the hair and beauty industry this means we have been in and out of work like yoyo’s. It’s hard to keep motivated through times like this and self care really is something that needs to be at the top of the priority list.
If you are not feeling very motivated and need some help from within, Why not consider a natural supplement. This weeks product spotlight is on one of my Neals Yard Favourites….

Our skin isn’t just a surface, it’s the largest organ of our body, acting as a protective barrier between us and our environment.
The skin consists of two layers, the underlying dermis and the surface epidermis, which is constantly renewing itself, taking about 20 days to refresh. As well as looking after the surface of our skin by applying nourishing skin care, the key to healthy, radiant skin lies in providing the essential nutrition that it needs to renew, maintain and repair.

Cleanse from within

Foods for Dry Skin
Omega oils or essential fatty acids help to balance sebum in our skin. When taken with food they’re often referred to as our internal moisturiser because of the link between gut health and the skin.
Among just some of the ingredients, I wanted to highlight Hemp and the benefits of this alone.
Hemp seed oil – How does hemp oil benefit your skin?
There are a number of skin care benefits that you can get from using hempseed oil, either topically or by consuming it.
Moderates oil production
Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturise without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Dryness can also cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. Hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil.
Moisturises and soothes inflammation
One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.
This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturised.
Treats atopic dermatitis
Part of what makes hempseed oil so beneficial to the skin is that it’s rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Consuming these nutrients can help to treat skin conditions like atopic dermatitis.
One randomised, single-blind crossover study found evidence that dietary hempseed oil reduced the symptoms and appearance of clinical atopic dermatitis after 20 weeks.
Has anti-aging properties
In addition to moisturising and soothing the skin, hemp oil has anti-aging properties. Hemp oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging from developing.
The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in hemp oil can’t be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-aging, so they’re important nutrients to add to the diet.
