Christmas and your health

Christmas is often considered the most wonderful time of the year, but our health and beauty frequently suffers during the festive season.

Dark mornings and evenings, cold snaps and temperature changes impact our immunity and most of us end up fighting off colds, coughs and other health niggles. We want to sleep more but December usually means late nights spent socializing, an overindulgence on alcohol and rich food – and somehow amongst all this we need to keep looking our best!

At the root of all these issues is inflammation. The trick to surviving Christmas, be it a hangover, lack of sleep, not looking your best or fighting off the office super bug, is addressing inflammation on a daily basis.

The Hayo’u Method is here to help. Just a couple of minutes a day means you can enjoy the delights of Christmas and keep everything else in balance too. All you have to do is take two minutes in the morning and evening to help your body using our simple one minute rituals.

The Beauty Restorer Ritual: Look radiant after a late night
Health and beauty are intricately linked. So if you’re looking worse for wear the morning after the night before you need to reach for our Beauty Restorer™. Using this jade tool for just one-minute engages the circulatory system, flushing the area with nourishing blood for a true inner glow that no other skin care product can match. By press stroking the skin with the jade you stimulate microcirculation, which increases oxygen and nutrient levels and boosts levels of collagen and elastin. This action simultaneously improves lymph drainage and helps eliminate toxins to leave you fresh faced and hangover free.

The Body Restorer Ritual: Keep colds and coughs at bay
Regular practice of the Body Restorer Ritual will help boost your immunity during the colder months. How? Gua sha has been shown to exponentially increase blood flow to the surface of the skin, which helps disperse toxins by increasing circulation there. Then as the blood is reabsorbed by the body it promotes an enzyme (HO-1) which is anti-inflammatory and boosts immunity.

The first sign of a virus is often an ominous tickle in the back of the throat. So use the Beauty Restorer™ to gently Gua sha down the neck. If you do catch a cold, use the Body Restorer to Gua sha your upper back – this is a traditional Chinese Method of tackling colds that is astonishingly effective.

If you’re struggling to resist the mince pies, practicing the Hayo’u Method can help! Calorie rich foods tend to have an acidic ph which causes inflammation in the body. And did you know that inflammation is one of the underlying causes of weight gain? Combine that with other causes of inflammation such as insufficient sleep, stress and infections and your little black dress isn’t much of an option.

So given that dieting, sleeping and relaxing aren’t really on the cards right now, it’s really important to decrease inflammation in other ways. The good news is that Gua sha has been proven in studies to do just that. Simply practice the Hayo’u Method morning and evening using the Body Restorer ™, supported by the Rescue breath and Reset one-minute rituals and you’ll be able to have your mince pie and eat it.
