Jasmine Tookes On Her Stress-Busting Tricks
Have A Positive Mental Attitude
When I wake up, I try to think of something positive to jumpstart my day. I strongly believe that your mind has so much power and positive thoughts really help to set the tone for a stress-free day. It’s a simple, but powerful trick that can make a real difference to how you feel.
Top Up Your Hydration
Drinking enough water every day helps me feel and look better. If my skin is not it’s best and I want to protect it, my first thing I do is think about how much water I’ve drunk.
Invest In Your Skin
Having a daily skincare routine helps me to regroup and rebalance. I've been using the new Hourglass Equilibrium Rebalancing Cream Cleanser, £24.00. They just launched skincare and I'm obsessed with the line. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, but still ultra-hydrated. I follow that with the Hourglass Equilibrium Restoring Essence, £64.00, both day and night. I see the difference in how it balances my skin and adds radiance without making it feel dry or tight.
Kora Organics Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum, £63.00 and Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil, £23.00 help to give my skin an extra boost in the evenings. Before bed every night, I use Hourglass Equilibrium Intensive Hydrating Eye Balm, £78.00 – it’s amazing. I love how rich and soothing the formula feels. After just three days, the area under my eyes looked and felt smoother.
Have A Back Up
Every once in a while, though, stress gets the better of me and will make my hyperpigmentation flare up. When that happens, I reach for Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro, £465.00. I'll use it at night before bed to help even out my skin tone, and also right before my menstrual cycle when my skin is more prone to breaking out.
Take Two Minutes Out
My advice to anyone who is feeling stressed is to just take a second and slow down. Do something for yourself that you love to do, even if it’s just for two minutes. Also, remember that there’s some things you can’t change… just take each day moment by moment with a smile on your face.
