A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.
I truly believe that having a great Sunday really gets your week off to a positive start. A ‘great’ Sunday can mean anything and differ greatly depending on the person and how they are feeling. Sometimes a Sunday spent relaxing on the sofa is just what I need. Others, I like to head to the gym, get in a few hours of work, do some cleaning and then wind down in the evening.
In the lead up to Christmas things have been get a little crazy and very, very busy. When I do have super busy periods I like to get on top of everything on Sundays, so I don’t feel overwhelmed come Monday morning. As well as doing some work and prepping some food for the week, I also like to make some time for me; to relax and take a few simple steps that make me feel calmer and a little less stressed after a manic weekend (and with yet another busy week approaching).
Recently one of my favourite things to do as part of my Sunday routine is a little pampering; it’s a quick and simple step to add into my day, which makes me feel like I am taking the time to look after myself. Above all, it isn’t too time consuming meaning I can still fit it in around my other tasks.
I was recently send some fab products from Seatox; a vegan, cruelty free and 100% natural and organic brand. Seatox uses the incredible properties of wild seaweed to detox, rejuvenate, boost skin collagen regeneration and fight breakouts.
The first product is Kelp Help – a wild kelp face mask powder. It is incredibly powerful and high in Iron, Iodine, retinol Magnesium and zinc. Kelp has over 20 trace elements from the ocean and has been described by Jamie Oliver as ‘The most nutritious vegetable in the world’. It’s benefits include anti-ageing, detoxifying and skin renewing properties. I added some coconut oil and water to my powder to create a paste that can be applied to the skin.
The other product I received is Selkie Smooth – a wild seaweed bath soak. This bath soak is 100% Fucus Serratus seaweed, which contains extraordinary amounts of retinol (otherwise knows as vitamin A). This is also known as the secret to youthful and supple skin. Fucus Serratus is bursting with essential vitamins and minerals like Iodine, magnesium and zinc.
This comes just as you see here, basically seaweed in it’s natural form. I haven’t seen or tried anything like this before so it was quite a strange concept to be adding a plant into the bath with me. To use it, you rehydrate the seaweed in your bath, squeezing the natural gels over your body face and hair. Then Soak for 20-40 mins and let your skin absorb the powerful nutrients of the sea.
Overall I love the brand and the idea behind Seatox. The creator Tess set out to find natural and vegan alternatives to the synthetic and chemical additives in skincare products, and did just that. On top of that, Seatox donates £1 from every sale to Seal Rescue to support with conserving the marine ecosystem.
The products might not look as glam and fancy as some of the brands I have used previously, but they definitely work. I especially love the mask and my skin felt great after using it. The products are vegan, all natural and super affordable, so they make the perfect skin treat for yourself or for a loved one.
