Do you have a ‘Wellness Strategy’?

wellness_education_0

Do YOU have a ‘Wellness Strategy’ for 2017?

What is a ‘Wellness Strategy’? A wellness strategy is a plan of action to achieve personal wellness goals. For example; say your goal is to relax more, ask yourself “How could I accomplish that? What does ‘relax’ mean to me?”

A Wellness Strategy’s purpose is strictly to make accomplishing your goals attainable and less intimidating. To create a Wellness Strategy one must first decide what their wellness goal is. The next step would be to break that goal down into separate parts by asking yourself key questions.

  • “What does this goal mean for me or to me? Does this goal immediately affect my every day life or is it long term?”
  • “What could I do to accomplish this goal? What steps can I take to start?”
After asking yourself key questions such as these, one must then determine whether or not the goal is attainable and sustainable in their life. If your current lifestyle doesn’t allow the desired goal to be attained, how can you adjust your goal or your plan of action? How could you adjust your lifestyle to help make your goal attainable?
EXAMPLE: If your goal is to eat healthier
1st Ask yourself “What does that mean for me and my every day life?” Does this mean making more homemade meals with raw ingredients? Drinking shakes? Eating at home 3 nights a week?
2nd Ask yourself are these steps attainable and sustainable with your lifestyle. Does your work schedule allow time to shop for raw ingredients? Do you have time in the morning to prepare your day’s shakes? Are you home 3 nights a week to eat a meal?
3rd If your answer is no, your current lifestyle doesn’t allow for this to be attainable, then you must ask what you can adjust to make it attainable. Can you order your groceries online to be delivered to your home? Can you make your shakes the night before and store them in the fridge for the next day? Can you prep meals to freeze if you won’t have time to prepare them? If you can’t be home 3 nights a week, is there a vegan or all natural local restaurant you can eat at those nights?

No matter what your wellness goal is, your Wellness Strategy will help keep you on track to attaining and sustaining your goal.
Of course, SkinCatering® is here to support you with any of your wellness goals relating to treating yourself more kindly, reducing stress, and honoring what your body needs in order to maintain it’s healthy balance.

Stick this Where?!

Last week we introduced you to STORY TELLER™ Sports Gel. This week we present to you a new member of our Sports Line, BODY STICK for Body Sweat and Chafing.

Sweat builds in places you wouldn’t even think of. Especially if you’re a woman over 30, or a man of any age. This sweating is such a nuisance when you are hitting it hard at the gym, doing any physical activity or even sitting in that intense board meeting for an extended period of time. That is why we created the BODY STICK! SkinCatering’s new BODY STICK for areas that sweat and chaff is seriously so cool it doesn’t even need a name. We just call it like it is -BODY STICK – because you can use it ALL OVER your body.

First hand experience from the formulators

Our amazing Esthetician, Kim, uses the body stick as an all over deodorant.

“I have been using it every day. I used it in the 90 degree heat this past week on my vacation to South Carolina. I love that I can use it as an effective deodorant WITH OUT clogging my sweat glands like regular deodorants do!”

Dori, our Office Goddess, was starting to notice her husband complain of sweating and chafing while working at the lumber yard. She gave him the BODY STICK to help relieve the chafing and rash he experienced between his thighs from standing and walking in a hot warehouse all night. He was elated that the chafing lessened and the rash diminished after just one night using the BODY STICK. She herself uses the BODY STICK to help relieve under-boob sweat through out the day.

Thats right ladies! The BODY STICK can be used for that pesky under-boob sweat that we all hate!

These are just a few examples of the many areas you can use SkinCatering’s BODY STICK. It also comes in a convenient TRAVEL SIZE. Pop it in your purse or your backpack to have it with you whenever you need it.

Made with only all-natural ingredients, BODY STICK warms to your skin and glides on for a lasting, SOFT finish. Because the BODY STICK isn’t a regular deodorant, it may need a few seconds to warm to your skin before gliding on like butter. With only 7 pronounceable ingredients that will help save your skin from the torture that is sweating and chafing in those odd places!

The *NEW* STORY TELLER™

You’ve already seen the big announcement naming STORY TELLER™ as the new ‘HERO’ due to trademark rights. (Need a refresher on what the amazing benefits of the former ‘HERO’ are? Click here)

STORY TELLER™ GEL is a Sports Gel for Sore Bodies. It differs from STORY TELLER™ cream in that it is a fast drying concentrated gel, it is easy to transport, and it doesn’t melt! Perfect for those who love to hike or work outdoors! This gel comes in a full 8oz bottle or a travel 2oz bottle, perfect for tossing in your bag.

This concentrated sports gel uses an Aloe base that we make on site so there are NO PRESERVATIVES. When you use this gel you get all of the inflammation and soreness relieving benefits of STORY TELLER™ cream in a cooling, fast drying gel.

We all love STORY TELLER™ cream and massaging it into the skin for fast relief, so we are very excited for this easy to use gel that requires no massaging whatsoever!

Teen with Severe Gluten Allergy uses THIS for Pain Relief

For 15 year old Mary-Kate, her Gluten allergy prevents her from being able to use pain relievers such as Ibuprofen when she experiences pain and cramps from Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Looking for a Gluten free product safe for her to use to relieve her cramps and other symptoms, Mary-Kate turned to SkinCatering’s all-natural SkinCare product, ‘Iron Maiden‘.

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 1.51.51 PM

According to the Mayo Clinic, more than 3 Million people in the United States alone are told they have a Gluten allergy each year. This is an allergy that is not curable and can last a life-time. You really don’t realize how many things you consume or use each and every day that contain Gluten until you can no longer consume it. There are also substances that may make symptoms of Gluten intolerance worse, such as anti-inflammatories and pain relievers.

Gluten allergy or sensitivity is similar to Celiac disease with the main difference being that Gluten sensitivity does not permanently damage your intestines. However, Gluten sensitivity does enflame your intestines and cause irritation. When you take an anti-inflammatory or pain reliever it “increases intestinal permeability allowing for [food particles] to access the immune system…” If you already have intestinal irritation stemmed from a Gluten sensitivity, taking anti-inflammatories and pain relievers such as ibuprofen will only worsen your symptoms.

Mary-Kate talked about her Gluten allergy and Dairy allergy in her testimonial video.

      “… I can’t use Ibuprofen or anything like that… I’ve used Iron Maiden… and it actually does help with everything. It’s very calming and just helps with the cramps [from PMS] because I can’t use the alternative.”

Have you found yourself in the same situation as Mary-Kate and are still searching for alternative relief? You can find ‘Iron Maiden’ here. SkinCatering SkinCare ships internationally so don’t fret if you aren’t in the United States! Everyone can have access to our amazing SkinCare alternatives!

 

 

How your phone can help you feel more peaceful

I often use my phone to relax.
Whether it’s a light game to decompress, listening to music that soothes the beast, or reading a book on the kindle app, I appreciate using my smartphone in a positive way.

Here’s a note from my friend Courtney:

YogaPLUR

Feeling stressed, frustrated, or angry during your day? Surrounded by people and cannot go scream or punch something?

Pull out your phone and check out the Huffington Post’s GPS For the Soul App. This app measures your stress level by instructing you to place your pointer finger in front of the camera lens. It measures your heart rate and BPM. It will generate a color variation of your stress level. Then, you can watch one of the many guides that include nature scenes, music, and affirmations. It also has a breathing pacer that regulates your breath.

Simply stopping to breath can help do the trick for me, but when I am feeling stressed or angry it is hard for me to stop to breath. Someone telling me to ‘just breath’ can frustrate me more. Now, I can just pull out my phone and have pictures to focus on and something…

Social Spa trends

“It used to be that people went to spas to get away from it all and from each other. In recent years however spas have evolved to also cater to more social clients and serve as more common venues for bachelorette parties, book clubs and other get -togethers.”

–  American Spa March 2014

Looks like Skin Catering is spot on with its trends.
