It is almost Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the sun is coming back to the Pacific Northwest! With the lengthening of the day comes the opportunity to work and play outside. With its' return come profusions of flowers, green grass, and days that feel more full of promise than before. As the clouds lift, kids go skipping by, and I hear the sound of someone whistling!
Sunlight & Vitamin D
Being outside in the sun is important for skin health, as our skin naturally synthesizes Vitamin D when exposed to UV light. However, we also need protection, even in these early days, in the more sensitive areas of our skin. This is why we have a natural SPF 30 rating in our Botanical Eye Cream. Not only will it leave your skin feeling incredible, it will protect it too.
One of the best and free things you can do for your body and mind is a gentle stroll through the forest. Japanese people use the term shinrin-yoku for this kind of experience, which translates as "forest sinking." We love to spend time in the early spring, roaming the woodlands and looking at what is growing. Get a plant guide book, and the things growing all around will suddenly have names!
What do you plan to do in the nice springtime weather?
