From a routine to a ritual
What makes a routine a ritual? The way it makes you feel. Transform your daily skincare routine into a dreamy self-care ritual with COOLA. Delicious scents, indulgent textures, and healthy-for-you organic formulas give your skin—and yourself—the care you crave.
But where do you begin? We’ve got a morning skincare ritual that you’ll jump out of bed for and an evening ritual for a restful night of sleep. Plus, tons of ideas to keep you rejuvenated 24/7—like a yoga class, taking a bath, or just unplugging. Take some time to treat yourself!
In the AM:
Start the day the COOLA way. Our Rise & Hydrate ritual is one you’ll wake up for—pump on our Glowing Greens Detoxifying Facial Cleansing Gel to gently remove impurities, and then pat on our Vital Rush™ Skin Renewal Serum to add inconcentrated nutrients. Smooth on our Refreshing Water Cream to restore moisture and give skin a burst of hydration throughout the day with Refreshing Water Mist. This organic ritual with SPF removes skin stressors, mitigates the effects of bluelight and fortifies your skin's natural defenses.
Our other favorite ways to wake up…
- Fill your cup with warm tea or refresh yourself with some lemon water. Hydration is key in the morning.
- Take a few minutes to journal. Putting your thoughts on paper lets you clear your mind and start your day with a clean slate.
- Stretch a bit. Lengthening your body with yoga or just a morning stretch gets your blood flowing.
- Taking your vitamins or supplements in the morning with your breakfast.
- Throw on a happy playlist on Spotify. Singing along helps bring a smile to your face and gets those happy vibes flowing.
- Say your daily affirmations in the mirror. It helps set the tone for the day and puts you in a positive mind frame when you walk out the door.
In the PM:
- Our Repair & Reset ritual is the ultimate COOLA nightcap. Before you drift off to dreamland, prep and calm your skin for slumber. Wash the day (and dead skin cells) away with our Pacific Polish Gentle Sea Salt Facial Exfoliator. Restore tired skin by using our Facial Mask Brush with our Moon Silk Moisturize Recharging Mask. Finally, deeply nourish skin while you sleep with our fan-favorite The Great BarrierCream™ Fortifying Moisturizer.
Our other favorite ways to wind down…
- Take a walk. A walk after dinner with family, friends, your pup or solo is a great way to decompress from the day.
- Take a warm bubble bath. Enjoy some peace and quiet as the stress of the day melts away.
- Change to a silk pillowcase. The smooth fabric will feel like a treat against tired skin (plus, they help improve skin and hair hydration!)
- Unplug from technology. Give that blue light a break by turning off the TV and quitting the phone before bed. It’ll help you fall asleep easier.
- Read a book. Dive into a good mystery, autobiography, or whatever peeks your fancy before you shut your eyes.
Finally, don’t be afraid to mix it up. A ritual is habitual, but not set in stone forever.Find what makes you happy and go for it. Trying something new is often how we find what brings us most joy. What’s your favorite daily or nightly ritual?
