Top 5 Tips to Win Dry January

Top 5 Tips to Win Dry January

How are you jumping into the new year? Whether you have a list of resolutions or are abstaining from an unhealthy habit, we want to help support you.

Dry skin is NEVER in style! 

I totally understand the point of “Dry January”. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. There is nothing sexy about being dry. Nothing! As desert dwellers, there is nothing we like less than dry skin. That’s why all our products are made to provide constant hydration to body, hands, and lips.

This month needs a rebrand. How about Juicy January? Wet January? Or, dare I say, moist January? Nope I’ve gone too far. Juicy January it is! 

Let’s talk about “Dry January”.

Are you kicking off the year with Dry January? This time of year, a lot of us commit to a month in pursuit of a zero-proof lifestyle.

This health challenge originally started in 2012 as a public health initiative from the British charity Alcohol Change UK. It is now a worldwide phenomenon.

Heavy and long-term alcohol consumption is linked to a bevy of physical and mental health risks, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, digestive problems, various types of cancer, depression, anxiety and more, per the CDC.

Here are our Top 5 ways to make hydration part of your ritual:

  1. Sip an Alcohol-Free Drink
  2. Find New Modes of Decompression
  3. Curb Sugar Consumption
  4. Enlist a Support Squad
  5. Fill Up Your Calendar with FUN

The Most Hydrating Ingredients on Earth

Replacing your version of happy hour with another mood-boosting activity can kill cravings you may have during Dry January. Consider a small change in your skincare routine and add in some succulent skincare to double down on moisturization.

When you make this small change, it can help with each of our Dry January tips. Indulging in your inner spa maven will help to decompress your stress. If you bring your spa crew into the mix, you can book a ton of fun as you do a tasting of every faux-se!
