Whether by the sea, in the mountains, in the countryside or any other destination, each of us is projecting ourselves towards a more than deserved rest period. So here is a firm and careful analysis of what this season should be for everyone. How to get the best out of it and above all recharge your batteries after a long year of work and hardship!
Here then is the Black Friday in the summer to fill up on shopping for your holidays, of whatever nature they may be!
Aromatherapy and Soul
Summer has among its advantages to free us from many obligations by providing a moment of rest and tranquility. It’s the right time to meditate or simply reflect.
Aromatherapy is a good starting point, in fact paying attention to the fragrances of the products you buy is the first step towards harmony.
The elegant line of Vivian Gray offers a range of pleasant fragrances to choose from, such as gel shower and the hand soap with amber and neroli.
The first aroma has the great advantage of reducing stress and anxiety, as well as having a positive impact on mood by inducing optimism and helping to eliminate negative energies. While the second, delicate and flowery, instills hope. Even in Ayurvedic medicine it is believed that its greatest quality is to heal the cracks of the soul.
Longing for the Sun
Tanning is the awareness of experiencing a moment of rest and carefree, the clear signal that the body and mind are well. All this is thanks to Vitamin D , but there are also other little tips that can help you be healthy and beautiful!
The production of melanin , for example, is a process that can also be activated starting from the table. In fact, beta-carotene accelerates the production of melanin. Together with bioflavoids and Vitamin E , also precious allies in this process, they are found in foods such as: oranges, avocados, grapes, melon, mangoes, apricots, carrots, papaya, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, peppers and watermelon. Even better if they are paired with foods rich in Vitamin C such as: parsley, lemon, citrus fruits, kiwi, chilli, cabbage and spinach .
To then enhance the result, I recommend a good, but natural, bronzer . The best? The pearls of solar earth of Avon! And to avoid the annoying shiny effect on the face, it’s essential matting wipes of Dermacol.
Two make-ups made with the “Disney Storybook” palette by I Heart Revolution
Among the best activities to enhance your cognitive abilities , but in the meantime relax, are writing and reading .
Picking up pen and paper, instead of electronic devices, helps you learn and remember better. In fact, a study published in the journal “Frontiers in Psychology” showed that the results of the encephalograms of the 24 volunteers showed less intense brain activity when they typed with the keyboard.
In fact, writing with the pen provides the brain with more holds to which memories can be hooked. Therefore, keeping a travel journal, for example, will make the memories of your vacation more vivid and exciting.
But reading is also important, especially if you choose titles that can reach the soul. Better if the book is real and not digital, to immerse yourself in the scent of paper and get lost in the ink of words.
An original idea is to pick up fairy tales again, rediscover them with the wisdom of maturity, to understand their true metaphors and thus let your inner child learn to be surprised again.
Taking a cue from the face palette of I Heart Revolution, with bright and lively colors great for the summer, inspired by “The Princess and the Frog” I decided to find the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale from which it was taken and turn it into my book of the summer!
