Stress is something that gets us all. Whether we consciously realise that we're dealing with it or or are struggling with it to the point we can't see a way out, it's there for all of us and finding a way to tackle it is something we should all be aware of. We all work so bloody hard and with the constant demand of our day-to-day jobs (don't even get me started on life admin) it can be easy for it all to pile on top and become a bit too much. If you can address stress head on, it means you're more likely to live a healthier life - better quality too and become less ill all the time.
Chinese medicine can have a bit of a bad rep, which was why I was a little sceptical about The Hayo'u Method when I first heard about it, as it is just that. But scam perception aside, in actual fact it's a concept that's steeped in centuries of effective traditions and long-standing practice - and where The Hayo'u method is concerned it very much takes that in it's stride. It isn't accupuncture-esque - no needles involved here like my first thought may have been. It is in fact a speedy ritual, that you can add into your daily routine with very little effort. It's relaxing, and it gives you a moment for 'you' in your daily routine, which for me is incredibly important.
When I met Katie Brindle, a Chinese Medicine Practitioner and founder of Hayo’u my eyes were completely opened up to the world of Chinese Medicine and how quickly and effectively a simple movement have an effect. It's deeper than the usual 'just take a paracetamol' outlook we all generally have on life. By following the Hayo'u method, just for a few minutes a day it can help to cleanse and make your body, generally, a more happy place.
For detailed information on the rituals Katie recommends, head to The Hayo'u Method but today I want to delve a little deeper into the product they have on offer.
I'm giving you a chance to win The Hayo'u Glow and Go set worth £98! The set includes the Beauty Restorer Jade Gua Sha Massage Tool, £35. This stone is my absolute favourite. Use the stone to press gently across the face to draw out tension. It plumps and boosts radiation - and it is my absolute go-to for cooling puffy under eyes.
The set also includes the Hayo'u Treat-Rite Face Oil, £33 which is my favourite oil to use when using the Gua Sha. It hydrates, illuminates and has an incredibly calming scent which makes it a favourite of mine for calming down in the evening.
Finally the set includes the Hayo'u Bathe-Rite Shower Minerals, £28. First things first, this smells incredible and is so relaxing like the Face Oil. The body wash is a concentrated formula of himalayan pink salt, lotus flower and frankinsense to de-stress the body. If you combine the use of this, with a quick one-minute breathing ritual as detailed on the site you'll come out of the shower like a new Woman. I am hooked.
