NOURISH THE SKIN YOU'RE IN
Today we ask the delightful Gul Bains-Khosa owner of Beaut-ology her top tips to nourish the skin you're in.
1.What do you do as part of your regular routine to look after yourself?
I try to meditate, do yoga and switch off from all distractions created by social media! I also love to read and restrict how much TV I watch. Currently I am training to do a walking marathon for charity and I have been exploring the countryside which creates a positive mindset for me.
I religiously removing my make up every day and always cleanse, tone & moisturise my face. I am a firm believer in using natural skincare products.
2. What are the key things you have found that nurture self-nourishment?
I have started growing some herbs and vegetables in the garden and having access to this makes it easier to nurture self-nourishment. It’s very handy to make a fresh dressing or pick fresh mint for my tea. Anything that helps you to develop a positive mind set such as yoga & meditation also helps. I have created an area in the garden where I can get some quite time and often mediate there.
3. What could you do more of to nourish the skin you're in?
Moisturise my body more, I am very lazy with this and as a result I have very dry skin. I should also drink more water, do more yoga, & exercise.
4. What top tips have you got to give others around your working life to stay on top??
Having my own business can be tough so it’s important to believe in yourself and your abilities. Continue to learn and expand your mind. Currently I am learning Italian which is loads of fun and although I did not take this up because of my business, this skill helped me when I did some work in Italy a couple of weeks ago. Do what you love and take risks. Be kind to yourself by listening to your body and not working every single hour your physically can. I think a lot of business owners are guilty of this!
5. What are the things you couldn't live without that are key to your happiness and nourishment?
My husband, family, friends & Lilly my dog! Oh yes and music!
