It’s Women’s Health Week and we’re celebrating all week long by giving you back your pink tax with 10% off sitewide and daily giveaways on Instagram. Before we jump into all the fun, here we’re sharing our seven top tips for improving your overall health. From exercise to self-care, we cover all the bases to help you look and feel your absolute best.
Get your workout on
You’ve probably heard this a million times before but it’s so important that it’s worth repeating: Exercise is an incredible health booster. It doesn’t matter if you hit up a hot yoga class or just blast Beyonce and dance around your living room, just move your body! You’ll feel amazing afterwards. Pro tip: Cool, stylish workout gear from brands like Onzie will give you that extra spark of inspiration you need to get moving.
Use natural feminine care products
Traditional feminine care products are chock-full of toxic ingredients that you definitely don’t want to be putting in your body every month. Switching to natural feminine care products, like our Organic Pads and Tampons made with 100% certified organic cotton, is an easy way to uplevel your health.
Volunteer and give back
Volunteering and giving back gives you a big sense of joy and fulfillment that is great for your physical and mental health. There are so many different ways you can do this and every little bit makes a difference. If you’re in Los Angeles, we invite you to join us on Saturday, May 25 at our packing event with #HappyPeriod where we’ll be packing menstrual hygiene kits for homeless women. Prepare to leave feeling all the good vibes.
Take care of your mental health
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. If you struggle with depression or anxiety, we highly encourage you to first and foremost get the professional support you need. There are also little rituals you can practice daily to keep your mental wellbeing in check such as meditating, journaling, or using a chic Vitruvi diffuser to infuse your space with the healing energy of essential oils.
Track your gynecological health with a birth control app
Knowing and understanding your cycle is a major part of being in control of your health. Apps like Natural Cycles make it super easy to track your period and how you’re feeling too. This is also a great option if you’re looking for a natural, hormone-free birth control method or want to know what days you’re fertile in order to conceive.
Stay out of the sun
As we dive into the warmer months, it’s so vital for our health to practice safe sun. Avoid being out in the sun as much as possible. When you do go out, be sure to slather on the sunscreen and protect yourself with a big (and stylish!) hat. Luckily, you can still achieve that sunkissed glow without harming your skin with products like Farmacy Beauty’s Golden Hour. If you do happen to get some sun exposure, use our Vitamin C Sheet Mask afterward.
Self-care is becoming a big trend and we’re totally digging it. One of our favorite ways to unwind is by indulging in all things beauty and skincare. Hormonal acne is a real thing that many women deal with every month. When it’s that time of the month (or anytime, really), get your pampering on with natural and organic skincare products like Honey Belle’s jade facial roller and Green Tea Matcha Facial Scrub or our Microneedle Healing Patch and Tea Tree Sheet Masks.
