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
Prioritise staying hydrated by drinking a lot of water! Not only will it help cleanse your system but it will wake your body up and flush any toxins out. Remember, 6 – 8 glasses of fluid a day is what you’re aiming to drink.
Get Moving
It’s time to refocus on your motivation and factor 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 lots of activities that can be done safely outdoors, as long as the weather allows, such as kickboxing, running, and yoga.
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 minimal processed foods. Try filling your plate with a spectrum of colours 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 go to sleep. 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!

Your New Year Refresh!

Give your body, hair and skin a fresh start in 2021!
After all the splurging during the hustle and bustle of the festive season, the new year offers the perfect opportunity for a fresh start.

Total_Greens_blog_january_2021_v1
Refresh Your Body
So we just spent the last six to eight weeks indulging in treats, sweet drinks and scrumptious dinners. Whilst we wouldn’t have it any other way, season festivities often leave us feeling sluggish in January. Starting the day with a glass of warm lemon water is a popular cleansing technique to get your day rolling. Adding more fruits to your diet is another way to give yourself a fresh start to 2021.
Purifying_Vinegar_Shampoo_&_Conditioner_blog_january_2021_v1
Refresh Your Hair
Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp! Environmental impurities cling to our hair and scalp throughout the year. That’s why giving your hair and scalp regular purifying resets are essential to any haircare routine and January is the perfect time to begin. With the launch of our NEW Purifying Haircare Line featuring Purifying Vinegar Shampoo and Scalp Purifying Scrub, you have the scalp cleansing products your hair craves! This high-performing scalp scrub and shampoo is formulated with apple cider vinegar, superfruit AHAs, and vitamin B6 to offer you the ultimate new year refresh!

Refresh Your Skin
January is also the ideal time to cleanse your skin of environmental impurities, toxins, and dead skin to leave you looking refreshed and renewed!
Of course, you’ll want to cleanse your skin daily, and we offer two options depending on your skin type to help ensure the effects of your cleanse last. Add Be Balanced™ Foamy Cleanser to your routine if you have normal to combination skin or Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser if you have oily skin.
You’ve earned a fresh start to 2021, and we hope these quick tips get you on toward your best year yet!

Here’s To Your Health!

Four tips to stay healthy this festive season!
The festive period is 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 four tips to stay healthy during the festive period.
Drink-Plenty-of-Water_v2
Drink Plenty of Water
Cooler weather combined with Christmas get-togethers means dehydration is calling. Festive options like fizzy drinks and alcoholic beverages makes drinking water all the more vital in order to ensure you stay hydrated and glowing throughout the festive season.
Total_Greens_Blog_24_December_2020
Support Your Immune System
A diet incorporating a healthy mix of fruits and vegetables will help you feel more energetic and avoid the extra weight that tends to creep up at this time of year. Try incorporating your daily serving of fruits and veggies into your Christmas diet to avoid that sluggish post Christmas feeling.
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 festive season is 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 favourite book, or indulging in a special hair treatment. You’ve earned your time to unwind after a long year!
We hope you find these tips helpful! The festive season is a special time, and we want everyone to be happy and healthy alongside their loved ones.

Happy, Healthy Festive Hair!

Four haircare tips to look your best this winter!
The festive period is here…and that means a few of our favourite things are in season: festive decorations, catchy carols, cosy clothes and gift-giving! Naturally, you’ll want to look your best all season long, and using the right winter haircare routine is essential to achieving your festive glow.
As always, we’ve got you covered! Here are four haircare tips to help you look your best this winter.
Restructuring_Hair_Care_Collection_DEC_10_2020_v3
Trim & Treat Those Ends
Regular hair trims are a great way of keeping your hair looking healthy. A good plan is to trim half an inch off every four to eight weeks to reduce your chances of developing dry, split ends. If you’re looking for additional help in addressing breakage and damage, add our Restructuring Hair Care Collection to your routine.
MONAT_STUDIO_ONE™_Heat_Protectant_Spray_DEC_10_2020
Limit Heat Styling & Damage
We love creating hot styles using hot tools during the festive season! 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 round, 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 a 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 festive season.
We hope this helps you achieve the happy, healthy looks you deserve this festive season!

The REJUVENIQE® Story

Get to know our flagship products!
October is REJUVENIQE® Oil Intensive’s sixth birthday, which makes this an ideal time to share the science behind the product that started it all for MONAT!
Did you know that Abyssinian Oil was the first ingredient we selected to create REJUVENIQE®? Plus, it is our exclusive ingredient. Here are some cool facts about this incredible oil!
  • Abyssinian Oil comes from the Crambe Abyssinica plant, native to the Mediterranean and East Africa.
  • Abyssinian oil is a 100% natural, non-genetically modified product.
  • This eco-friendly oil is fully biodegradable and free of any harmful additives and features a molecular structure that is not found in any other naturally occurring oils.
  • It features Omega 9 fatty acids, which are composed of Erucic Acid, Oleic Acid, and Linoleic Acid, Palmitic Acid and Stearic Acid.
This unique blend of ingredients offers a replenishing experience suitable for use on your hair and skin. REJUVENIQE® Oil Intensive launched the Healthy Hair Revolution in 2014, which is still going strong today, especially after the launch of REJUVENIQE light by MONAT™ in 2019.
REJUVENIQE_light_Blog_Oct_2020
A Lighter Touch
Whilst REJUVENIQE® Oil Intensive offers a wide range of benefits for the skin and hair, there was a need for a lighter formula for those with delicate, fragile, fine hair and oily-to-combination skin.
This new formula is feather-light, nutrient-rich, and has been designed to offer the same benefits as REJUVENIQE® Oil Intensive but with a lighter touch. Like its predecessor, REJUVENIQE light by MONAT™ is fast-absorbing and versatile enough to offer head-to-toe nourishment.
REJUVENIQE_light_by_MONAT™_Blog_Oct_2020
How To Use It
No matter which version of our oil intensive you prefer, REJUVENIQE® has several uses that can be incorporated into your healthy living lifestyle. Here are a few ways we recommend using our signature product.
Haircare:
Pre-Shampoo Treatment
Apply a generous amount to dry or damp hair and scalp. Leave on for 15 minutes, rinse thoroughly, shampoo and condition.
Intensive Hydrating Treatment
Apply a generous amount to damp hair and scalp. Place a warm moist towel around the head and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly, shampoo and condition.

Apply a small amount to hands and apply to hair after styling, concentrating on the middle and ends.
Skincare:

Capture Your Autumn Glow!

Four Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin!
With autumn upon us, 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 a 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 will need a thicker moisturiser, 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 is designed to be used before moisturising. The result? Instant hydration, protection and improved texture and tone.

Protect Your Lips
Start moisturising now to prevent dry, cracked lips, Dr. Ross advises. Gently exfoliate your lips and apply a moisturising lip balm that’s petroleum free.

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 moisturisers. Adding a nightly cuticle cream can also help your hands get a head start on colder weather!
Now you’re ready to face the autumn with glowing skin!

Get Your Luxurious Oils

Rejuvenating your hair and skin begins with luxurious 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 realise the unbelievable rejuvenation the right oils offer to your hair and skin. Now, let’s take a look at the benefits that using oils have on your hair!
REJUVENIQE_Hair_August_2020
Strong Hair, Don’t Care!
Great hair is well moisturised and soft to the touch, whilst being resilient. The beauty of adding oil to your haircare regimen is that it enriches your hair with softening and moisturising properties that it needs to look its best.
The following are just some of the benefits of using oils in your haircare routine:
  • Protection from heat damage: Oils add a layer of protection that keeps heat damage at bay.
  • Hydration: The fatty acids in oils protect your hair from losing the moisture it needs to look its best.
  • Promotes hair growth: You need hydration and strength to grow healthy hair, and oils add essential hydration and strength.
REJUVENIQE_Skin_August_2020
Nourish the Skin You’re In!
People often associate oily skin with break outs. Whilst it’s true that oily skin is prone to spots and breakouts that 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 ageing by addressing sun damage and adding moisture to help improve elasticity.
REJUVENIQE_and_REJUENIQUE_light_August_2020
The Luxurious Duo
REJUVENIQE® 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!
REJUVENIQE® Oil Intensive is formulated with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants designed to nourish your hair, scalp and skin without greasiness. If you’d prefer a lighter touch, REJUVENIQE light by MONATTM offers delicate nourishment for fragile, fine hair and oily-to-combination skin.
