Ode to rest

A few days ago a publication circulated on the networks that made us think. The post I was reflecting on the current system and how you feel guilty and punish yourself every time you feel that you are not being “productive”.

You have to see what it costs us to be aware that rest is not a whim! It is not just that it is bad, but quite the opposite.

Burn it on fire. 

Enjoying the pleasant sensation of being on the loose foot and the “five more minutes” does not mean that you are lazy, and, in addition to tasting like glory, it increases your physical and mental stamina, reduces diabetes and regulates stress. Come on, it's not just a pleasure, but we're talking about health.

Rest affects the entire body, including the skin. Because yes, your skin needs to rest too. 



Just as you go to sleep to regain energy for the next day, the body also uses these hours to regenerate. And with it your complexion.

If you are an observer and you know yourself, you probably already know that a routine in the schedules, eating light and nutritious dinner and respecting circadian rhythms benefit your skin. 

Rhythms ... what? Much simpler than it seems, it is about matching your activity and your rest to the cycles that light and dark mark.

Your internal 24-hour cycle is determined by the shift change between the sun and the moon. As a human species, our organism has evolved to adapt to the rotation of the Earth. 

That is, the Cardiac rhtyms They are the culprits that you have an internal biological clock that regulates the times of sleep and eating, your production of hormones and temperature.

It is this internal timer that asks you to rest when night falls and warns you that it is time to get going in the morning. 

The same happens with your skin. It is normal that at night I ask you for more dense and unctuous products such as oils and lighter textures to go out on the street. And in the same way, you have to listen to your instincts. 

The night is the time to feed your skin, because while you rest in a horizontal position, your skin is nourished. When all is quiet it is time to calmly absorb all the nightly beauty ritual.

Although there is a trend that advocates not applying any product to let it breathe, experience tells us that it is not the skin that fulfills this function, but the respiratory system that performs it for the whole organism. The skin does not breathe, it regenerates. 



Here all three layers of tissue come into play: epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. The latter supported by adipose and connective tissue, made up of a succession of cells that multiply during their useful life creating what we call skin. And this happens to a large extent while we sleep.

You just have to see the effects of a good night's sleep. Dark circles disappear and your skin is brighter and firmer. 

So we got down to work to take advantage of rest and its benefits for your skin. We wanted to create something nutritious that would hold up to head turns and pillow rubbing.

In this way our Jasmine Absolute Night Repair Balm. Once again, it was Celia, who is such a fan of vegetable butters for that, who was in charge of achieving the perfect texture after a long process in the laboratory and testing it on the skin of different women between 30 and 75 years old.




Without a doubt, the perfect product for those who find it difficult to find time to take care of themselves in their day-to-day life. Have you tried it? We would love to hear your opinion.
