Kate Somerville: Color Balance
This year, my summer travels have taken me to the gorgeous islands of Fiji and Hawaii, where it’s all about color!
Nature has always been my inspiration, so the islands are the perfect place for me to unwind. From fiery sunsets and gold-laced clouds to the vibrant green of lush vegetation, the color and beauty constantly remind me to slow down to enjoy every detail and just . . . breathe.
When I get back from vacation, it’s easy to slip back into a hectic pace and get wrapped up in day-to-day tasks. That’s why I’m loving bursts of color right now. They not only brighten my mood, but they also serve as a reminder of my time on the islands. They can be as simple as a fun nail polish color, a bright sandal, or a swipe of vibrant lip gloss. I am a huge believer in the impact emotions have on your skin, so it’s important to take the time for little things that positively affect you.
Another way I seek balance is by reconnecting with nature. Taking time for a hike in the hills early in the morning is one of my favorite ways to quiet my mind and nurture myself. Relieving stress and re-balancing should be part of your skincare routine. Try different options like meditation, yoga, exercise, and massage, and see what method you respond to best. Be consistent, and practice your method frequently . . . & not just in times of greater stress. You will see the positive results of a regular routine on your skin and your entire state of mind.
