With Covid, the Presidential elections, racial injustice, quarantine and being a small business navigating through uncertain times, I feel like I’m on an emotional roller coaster going 100 MPH non-stop. Anytime I feel overwhelmed I usually meditate or go on a walk. However lately, with all the chaos happening all over the world, I needed an extra boost, so I’ve also been taking Joy Organics Hemp tincture(45 mg per serving) as a way to calm my mind. I definitely have the time, so there’s absolutely no excuse to for me not to be more mindful of my mental, spiritual, and physical well-being. That means taking vitamins, exercising more, sticking to a healthy diet and maintaining a skincare routine that’s naturally effective and safe for sensitive skin.
I have seasonal allergies that causes me to break out at the beginning of the winter and spring season, so I’m very cautious about what goes on my skin. When the seasons change, I usually switch up my skincare products—at the recommendation of a friend I decided to try something new. Cygalle Dias, founder of Cygalle Healing Spa, started a mobile concept spa in 2006 with notable clients such as Kate Hudson, Helena Christensen, David Blaine, and Rosario Dawson to name a few.
The mobile concept was such a success that Cygalle decided to expand into the spa management space where she launched, designed and managed the spa at Casa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic. The spa was voted one of the top spas in the world by Vanity Fair in 2009. Aside from launching a successful spa, she also has a holistic luxury beauty brand with an impressive line up of natural skincare products. Cygalle recently launched a line of Hemp products aimed at promoting a healthy mind, body and spirit—three really important qualities needed to achieve a balanced, fulfilling, and healthy lifestyle.
I’ve been using Cygalle’so2 Defense creamday and night for about a week and love the results! The texture is super light—with a little going a long way. I also love that its packed with natural ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, mango butter, chamomile and of course Hemp. It literally melts into the skin within seconds leaving no residue or oil behind. In fact, the Defense cream contains dry oils made to nourish skin that absorb quickly.
Using Hemp in everyday beauty products possess tons benefits especially if you have acne. Hemp contains anti-inflammatory properties, which is also what makes it such an effective pain reliever. (I did tons of heavy lifting at my previous job and have had to rely on Hemp to relive pain in my back, neck and shoulders). This reduction in inflammation translates to skin care through its ability to assist in calming the skin. Calmer skin equals fewer breakouts. Other benefits to using Cygalle’s Hempo2 Defense creamare its anti-aging properties. Since Hemp contains antioxidants that help reduce visible signs of aging, it could potentially help diminish visible issues such as skin dullness, reddish skin tones, and wrinkles. I can say that using the defense cream has definitely reduced the fine lines around my lips and eyes and has worked wonders on my sensitive skin. Over all the results were more than I could have dreamed of and I’ll be using Cygalle’s o2 Defense cream for years to come.
It feels weird thinking about my own needs while the world is suffering, but self care can not be overlooked. When my mind, body and spirit are aligned, I’m more focused and able to make better decision for the well-being of myself, my family, and my community.
