How Life is Better (and Healthier) with a Pet by Your Side
Owning a pet can be a big responsibility, but there are some significant health benefits to opening your home to a furry, feathered, or fishy friend! Here’s a few ways how life can be better (and healthier) with a pet by your side.
Pets-Help-You-Stay-Active
Pets Help You Stay Active
Calling all dog lovers! Dogs are one of the top pets that require daily exercise to stay fit and healthy. Walks around the neighbourhood or playtime in parks keep their bodies in shape and their minds sharp. That’s good news for them—but even better news for you! When you join your furry friend on a walk, you’re also burning calories and raising your heart rate. And don’t forget when it’s time for a post-play bath, consider a sulfate-free dog shampoo. We love MONAT PET™ Gentle Cleansing Dog Wash.
Owning a Pet Has Proven Health Benefits
There are positive benefits to owning a pet that go well beyond a walk or a run. Research has shown that owning a pet helps reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Watching your pet at play or just spending time with them helps you feel calmer and less stressed. The sensation of petting your dog or cat can reduce levels of cortisol—a stress hormone—while raising levels of serotonin, the chemical in our brain that helps us feel good. Isn’t that awesome?
Pets-Offer-Companionship-&-Can-Make-Us-More-Social
Pets Offer Companionship & Can Make Us More Social
It’s often said that pets offer unconditional love and can forge an unbreakable connection with you. In fact, both cats and dogs are legally defined as “companion animals”, which speaks to how much they can enrich our lives. They really are our best friends! Owning a pet also offers opportunities to get out and be social. They give you additional points of contact for conversations, and create opportunity to build connections with other pet owners. You have a lot of things in common, anyway! Whether you’re exchanging training advice or sharing happy moments, your experiences with your pets offer new ways to connect with others, which is a big boost to your emotional health.
Pets Teach Us to Be Better People
You pet’s well-being depends on the level of care and attention you give them. That kind of responsibility can give your life meaning and purpose. The daily routine of caring for a pet may feel like a chore at times, but it allows you to create structure and stability. While cats and dogs are the most popular types of pets, any domesticated animal from birds and lizards to horses and rabbits, can increase our emotional, mental, and physical health. Share your life and your love, and you’ll reap the rewards.

Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen

Listen up…and we can’t stress this enough. Get yourself familiar with a quality SPF because you will be applying it every single day. Yes, sir.

Get Your Healthy Living Journey Back on Track!

Simple steps to feeling your best in 2021
Now that we’ve kissed 2020 goodbye and welcomed 2021 with open arms, it’s time to officially get back to feeling your best, both mentally and physically. We’ve got just the right steps to create a lifestyle that centres on health from the inside out as you make your way into 2021.
Drink Up
Prioritize staying hydrated by drinking a lot of water! Not only will it help cleanse your system and get you turned around in the right direction, but it will wake your body up and get any toxins flushed out. Remember, 64 ounces of water a day or half your body weight in ounces daily is what you’re aiming to drink.
Get Moving
It’s time to refocus on your motivation and work exercise back into your healthy living routine. Start with three to four days of exercise a week to get your body moving and back on track. No need to stick to the boring ol’ treadmill either. There are tons of activities that can be done safely outdoors such as kickboxing, running, and yoga. To add a little more fun, there are socially distanced group classes available, too. Plus, exercising with a friend is a great way to stay motivated and accountable for sticking to your plan!
Opt for a Rainbow of Foods
Fruits and veggies and nutrient-dense foods, oh my! Dr. Agin, MONAT Scientific Advisory Board member, advises to eat a balanced diet: hydrate yourself and eat nutrient-dense foods (with the greatest amount and variety of nutrients) and minimally processed foods. Try filling your plate with a spectrum of colors found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Think fresh leafy greens, deep blue and red berries, and bright veggies. Better food choices like this will help you get glowing again from the inside out.
Catch Your Zzzs
Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep! To ensure your body recovers, heals, and functions at an optimum level, do your best to not only tuck in early, but be sure to turn off all devices, screens, or other distractions about an hour before you plan to lay down. This allows your mind to start calming down and unwinding from a day of constant activity.
Getting back on track in the new year is easy. With a little bit of commitment and planning, you’ll be on your way to your healthiest, happiest you in no time!

Here’s To Your Health!

Three tips to stay healthy this holiday season!
The holidays are here—and that means you’ve likely spent the last few weeks eating, drinking, gifting, and being merry! While this season is certainly something worth celebrating, all the hustle and bustle often causes us to develop some less than healthy habits. Rather than correcting these choices after the new year, why not incorporate a few healthy practices into your daily routine now? Here are three tips to stay healthy during the holidays.
Drink-Plenty-of-Water_v2
Drink Plenty of Water
Cooler weather combined with holiday parties means dehydration is calling. Holiday options like soda and alcoholic beverages makes drinking water all the more vital in order to ensure you stay hydrated and glowing throughout the holidays.
Make-Time-for-Exercise_v2
Make Time for Exercise
Get up and get moving! Use the few quiet moments you have during the day to incorporate a bit of exercise. Consider doing sit-ups after you wake up in the morning and before bed. You could also break your cardio sessions into two, 15 minute runs rather than one 30 minute run to make it feel less daunting.
Treat-Yourself_v2
Treat Yourself
Serving others is what the holidays are all about. But don’t feel guilty for taking some time to treat yourself to some self-care this season, too. Try meditation, reading your favorite book, or indulging in a special hair treatment. You’ve earned your unwind after a long year!
We hope you find these tips helpful! The holidays are a special time, and we want everyone to be happy and healthy alongside their loved ones.

Trim & Treat Those Ends
Regular hair trims are a great way to keep your hair looking healthy. A good plan is to trim half an inch every four to eight weeks to reduce your chances of developing dry, split ends.

MONAT_STUDIO_ONE™_Heat_Protectant_Spray_DEC_10_2020
Limit Heat Styling & Damage
We love creating hot styles using hot tools during the holidays! But hot tools can damage your hair, so you’ll want to limit their use. Instead, allow your hair to air dry whenever possible to reduce damage. If your winter style requires straightening or curling with hot tools, make our MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Heat Protectant Spray your go-to product!
REJUVENIQE™_Oil_Intensive_DEC_10_2020_v2
Oil Treatments
Oil treatments offer benefits all year, but they’re particularly important during the winter as the cool weather saps your hair of its moisture. REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive offers the essential nourishment your hair needs during winter’s coldest days. If you prefer a lighter touch, use REJUVENIQE light by MONAT™ to treat fragile, fine hair.
Replenish_Masque_DEC_10_2020_v2
Hair Masks
A great way to address dry hair during the winter is by using a hair mask once per week. Hair masks help reverse the signs of damage from dryness and offer the protection you need as the weather cools. Our Replenish Masque offers the hydration damaged, parched hair craves during the cool holiday season.
We hope this helps you achieve the happy, healthy looks you deserve this holiday season!

A Lighter Touch
While REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive offers a wide range of benefits for skin and hair, there was a need for a lighter formula for those with delicate, fragile, fine hair and oily-to-combination skin.

Capture Your Autumn Glow!

Four Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin!
Fall is in full effect…and we’re ready to adjust our skincare regimen to adapt to the cooler weather. We checked in with Dr. Amy Ross, MONAT Scientific Board Member, and came away with four tips for glowing skin!

exfoliate_autum

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Start your week with a full-body exfoliating session. Dr. Ross explains that gently exfoliating the skin once per week helps remove dead skin cells and leaves your skin smooth and renewed. Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they both exfoliate and hydrate.
MONAT Berry Refined Scrub™ is an easy-to-use option for anyone who wants to buff away dull skin and reveal their natural glow!

Use-Creams-

Use Creams & Oils
As the air becomes drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer, Dr. Ross says. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they both reduce water loss from the outer layer of the skin and provide hydration to the inner layer of the skin at the same time.
If you’re opting for oil, REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive is made of Abyssinian oil combined with a blend of 13 unique ingredients and designed to be used before moisturizing. The result? Instant hydration, protection, and improved texture and tone.

Protect Your Lips
Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips, Dr. Ross advises. Gently exfoliate your lips and apply a moisturizing lip balm that’s petroleum free and contains sunscreen with an SPF 20 or more

Elbows-Hands-and-Feet

Don’t Forget Your Knees, Elbows, Hands, and Feet!
Your knees, elbows, hands, and feet always are in need of some TLC. Dr. Ross recommends gently exfoliating these areas with rich, creamy moisturizers. Adding a nightly cuticle cream can also help your hands get a jump on cooler weather!
Now you’re ready to face the fall with glowing your skin!

Get Your Royal Oils

Rejuvenating your hair and skin begins with royal oils!
Healthy hair and skin are in—and they always have been! So what’s the key to rocking soft, healthy locks and stepping out into the world with youthful, glowing skin? Adding oils to your haircare and skincare routine is a great start!
Many people don’t realize the unbelievable rejuvenation the right royal oils offer on your hair and skin. Now, let’s take a look at the benefits using oils has on your hair!
REJUVENIQE_Hair_August_2020
Strong Hair, Don’t Care!
Great hair is well-moisturized and soft to the touch while strong. The beauty of adding oil to your haircare regimen is that it enriches your hair with the softening and moisturizing properties your hair needs to look its best.
The following are just some of the benefits using oils in your haircare routine offers:
  • Protection from heat damage: Oils add a layer of protection that keeps heat damage at bay.
  • Hydration: The fatty acids in oils protects your hair from losing the moisture it needs to look its best.
  • Promotes healthy hair: You need hydration and strength for healthy hair, and oils add essential hydration and strength.
REJUVENIQE_Skin_August_2020
Nourish the Skin You’re In!
People often associate breaking out with oily skin. While it’s true that oily skin is prone to the pimples and breakouts we often associate with our awkward teenage years, oils are often the missing ingredient in skincare regimens!
The right oils nourish your skin, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and so much more! The following are just some of the benefits of adding oils to your skincare routine:
  • Hydration: Dry skin is an obstacle for many. Oils offer your skin the moisture it needs to appear brighter and softer to the touch.
  • Shrinks pores: Large pores are another common skincare issue. Using oils can help reduce the appearance of large pores—even making them look much less noticeable!
  • Wrinkle reduction: Wrinkles are a problem for us all! Adding oils to your skincare routine can help prevent the signs of aging by addressing sun damage and adding moisture to help improve elasticity.
REJUVENIQE_and_REJUENIQUE_light_August_2020
The Royal Duo
REJUVENIQETM Oil Intensive is our flagship product and has been a staple of our haircare and skincare routines for years. REJUVENIQE™ is a magical multitasker that offers a balancing, rejuvenating haircare and skincare experience for all!
