Keep it Local

Support Small Businesses While Social Distancing
Social distancing has required adjustments from us all as we work to stay safe and healthy. Those adjustments include working from home, postponing trips, and generally limiting interactions with others. In many ways, social distancing can feel like distancing yourself from the things and people you love.
But that doesn’t have to be the case! You can use social distancing to your advantage by supporting the people and businesses that were always within arm’s reach—even if you can’t be within arm’s reach currently. Some of the greatest employees, entrepreneurs, and budding business leaders probably reside in your community. Now is the time to use social distancing to bridge the gap between you and them, and here are three ways you can do that!
Buy-from-Local-Shops
Buy from Local Shops
Large retailers have proven themselves to be trusted sources supplying food and products you and your family have used for years. However, your local deli or corner store—as well as the employees—may be in greater need of your patronage these days. Consider picking up your essential items or takeout order from the business right around the corner. We’re confident they’ll appreciate it!
Hire Local
Hire Local
Where’s your next Employee of the Month? He or she could be a few blocks over. Whether you’re a manager at a large company or an ambitious start-up, social distancing makes traveling long distances impractical. So, while a global candidate search may have been your organization’s plan a month or two ago, it probably isn’t viable in this moment. However, a local candidate search doesn’t mean you’d be settling. An incredibly talented candidate who may have slipped through your screening process may be just the person you need to invest in your company’s mission!
Support-Multi-Level-Marketers
Support Multi-Level Marketers
The most hard-working and ambitious entrepreneur and business leader in your life may live right next door! MONAT VIPs and Market Partners are either supporting or building a small, local business every day. If you’re a VIP, each purchase supports the dreams of the local business leader who enrolled you. Plus, you’re also supporting them when you introduce new VIPs to MONAT with Refer-A-Friend!
Also, Market Partners are not only earning income and expanding their own businesses. They are also helping new prospects establish and find success as local business owners. It’s a beautiful thing, and we can continue supporting these entrepreneurs and leaders while social distancing.

Pamper Your Pet

Show Your Pooch a Little Extra Love with a Spa Day
Doggy day spas? Yep, that’s a thing!
Rather than dish out tons of cash to have a stranger pamper your pet, why not create your own at-home spa for your furry friend? All you need are a few good products and some go-to activities to turn a regular day into your pup’s best day ever!
A-Clean-Pup-is-a-Happy-Pup
A Clean Pup is a Happy Pup
Humans aren’t the only ones who love a good bubble bath! Lather up your dog and rid them of all the dirt and grime that can build up within their fur. We love pH-Balanced MONAT PET™ Gentle Cleansing Dog Wash—because a clean pup is a happy pup!
Pawdicures
Pawdicures
And of course, don’t forget the pawdicure! How can you tell if it’s time to trim your dog’s nails? When it sounds like they’re walking around the house in your favorite pair of heels! Avoid the click-clack by trimming nails regularly. This will also get your pup used to having their paws handled, making visits to the groomer less stressful. At home, invest in a good pair of dog-specific nail trimmers to keep their nails healthy and on-point. You may also want to have a pair of small scissors handy to trim any extra fur and an emery board for smoothing jagged edges.
Unwind-Outside
Unwind Outside
A little time in the sunshine is a great way to let your furry friend release all of their pent up indoor energy! Plus the vitamin D and fresh air can benefit them, just as it does you. Hit the beach for some playtime, explore some local nature trails, or simply lay back on the lawn with your fur baby for some well-deserved R&R. A little outside unwind time together is always a great way to spend an afternoon. Once you head back indoors, freshen up Fido with a touch of MONAT PET™ Freshen Up Deodorizing Spray.
Exhale-&-Chill
Exhale & Chill
Despite their go-go-go attitudes, most dogs love a good nap! Be sure your dog’s bed stays in tip-top shape so that they benefit from some solid rest. Vacuum the bed regularly, and if possible, wash it in the washing machine to keep germs and odors at bay. If it won’t’ fit in the washer, spot clean any trouble areas and set out in the sun to dry. A clean, comfy bed will give your dog the best ending to one of their best days yet!

4 Essentials to Support Your Hair Health!
Love styling but hate daily shampooing? You aren’t the only one dealing with this age-old haircare balancing act. You already know that clean, healthy hair is essential to creating the best styles. Using products that keep your hair looking fresh and healthy is critical to managing this balancing act. Check out the four essentials we love to support your hair health, so that you can style without daily shampooing!
MONAT-STUDIO-ONE-The-Champ™-Conditioning-Dry-Shampoo_blog-march-2020_v2
A great dry shampoo is your best friend to avoid daily shampooing. Infused with REJUVENIQE™, The Champ™ leaves your hair feeling fresh and clean while knocking oil out of your hair. Expect The Champ™ to be part of your daily styling routine in between wash days.
Clarifying Shampoo_blog march 2020
You’ll need a deep cleansing shampoo if you want healthy-looking and manageable hair without daily shampooing. Our Clarifying Shampoo is one of fave go-to options! Clarifying Shampoo is formulated to lift surface impurities and rebalance hair oils while offering a deep sense of clean. Best of all, it also washes out any excess product buildup from the daily use of dry shampoos. Use it once per week for the best results.
Charcoal-Gelée-Hair-Masque_blog-march-2020
Hair masks are essential to maintaining your hair health and styling—especially if you’re avoiding daily shampooing! Our Charcoal Gelée Hair Masque also lifts impurities away while gently conditioning for optimal hair health and beauty.

The crown jewel of the MONAT haircare line should also be one of your essentials. REJUVENIQE™ is an amazing pre-shampoo treatment, so we recommend using it before your weekly Clarifying Shampoo wash. Apply a generous amount to your hair before washing and wrap a warm towel around your head for 15 minutes. REJUVENIQE™ nourishes by delivering essential oils to your hair, and the warmth of the towel aids this process.
The key to achieving great styles is a healthy hair routine that suits your needs. Your hair needs a healthy and clean environment to look its best, and this doesn’t require daily washing if you use the proper products.
Let us know if you’ll be trying this approach to cleansing haircare—we’d love to see the results. Tag your photos on social with #MONATstyle!

Come Together for International Women’s Day!

Connect & Celebrate With Your Girls!
March 8 is International Women’s Day, and we’re buzzing from all the good vibes we’re feeling right now! Let’s face it, the closest women in our lives are more like sisters than just friends—and the best thing about family is that they come together to help each other do amazing things. Ultimately, MONAT is all about that, too!
Whether you’re a Market Partner spreading the word about an incredible opportunity or a VIP sharing haircare and skincare advice with your besties, MONAT is all about bringing out the best in each other! Let’s take a look at a few ways to connect and collaborate for International Women’s Day.
Support-a-Women’s-Charity
Support a Women’s Charity
We love charities committed to empowering women and the families they lead! Their efforts truly make a positive impact on women and the communities in which they live. Our MONAT Gratitude team frequently partners with local charities like Miami’s Lotus House Women’s Shelter to empower women in need. These visits provide women complimentary products and MONAT makeovers. Days like this are always empowering for all involved!
Share Your Beauty Secrets
Share Your Beauty Secrets
Sharing haircare and skincare secrets can form lasting bonds. In a way, passing on your beauty secrets is like sharing a part of yourself and what makes you stand out. We took this concept on the road with our Healthy Skin Revolution tour and hopped aboard an eye-catching pink truck to introduce people throughout the United States and Canada to MONAT Skincare last fall. The tour was about more than an introduction to a brand-new product line, though. It allowed everyone in attendance to spread a little bit of their beauty to someone else!
Celebrate-Each-Other’s-Success
Celebrate Each Other’s Success
It’s easy to celebrate your success, but celebrating the success of others is truly special. Nothing says “I care” more than showing genuine happiness when your friend does something special. Whether they’re purchasing their first home or mastering a new hobby, be sure to show them how much this means to you. Recognition and celebration are essential to MONAT, and we make sure to spread that positive energy at every event!

Healthy ambition is key when working toward goals! Unhealthy ambition on the other hand, can lead you straight down the road into Burnout Town. Not only mentally, but physically. It’s always best to avoid unhealthy behaviors in business—because chances are, this will only lead to failure and even burnout.

Tame Your Mane, Man

4 Essential Haircare Tips for Men!
The healthy hair revolution isn’t just for the ladies. Guys, we know most of you don’t spend as much time worrying about haircare and styling as the women in your lives, but keeping hair clean, conditioned and healthy is essential for everyone. That’s why we’ve put together this rundown of 4 Essential Haircare Tips for Men!

Don’t-Shampoo-Everyday

Don’t Shampoo Everyday
If you’re like most men, you probably wash your hair every day. However, this common practice can be a one-way street to drying your hair out. This is especially true if you’re someone with naturally dry hair. So take a cue from the ladies in your life and rock some “second day hair” on occasion!

Black-Shampoo-and-Conditioner_blog_feb_13_2020

Use Conditioner
Many men choose to shampoo regularly in lieu of using conditioner. Or, in many cases, don’t even consider purchasing shampoo at all, which is hard for us to even think about! The right conditioner leaves your hair moisturized and looking shinier. If buying and toting multiple haircare products around is not your thing, a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner may be the best option for you. Consider MONAT BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner to treat your hair in one easy step.

MONAT-Black-Groom-Styling-Clay_blog_feb_2020

Invest in a Good Styling Product
Now that you’re properly washed and conditioned, you should also consider investing in a good styling product. The right styling product keeps your hair in place and helps your clean, lustrous hair pop even more! MONAT BLACK Groom Styling Clay is a good choice if you want to create a variety of modern looks without weighing your hair down.

Find-a-Good-Barber

Find a Good Barber
A great haircut is to a man what a new dress and pumps are to a woman. But you’ll never truly experience the full effects of a great haircut without a great barber! A great barber can help you create a hairstyle that best suits you and your chiseled silhouette. And once you’ve found the right barber, you should schedule a visit every two to three weeks to maintain your look.
Will you be using any of these products and tips? We’d love to see it! Share your look on social media with #MONATstyle!
