While the beauty industry markets an abundance of products intended to make us look and feel our best, they are only scratching the surface. In fact, looking and feeling your best can start with healthy habits that have nothing to do with the shampoo in your hair or the lotion on your skin. Little things that you do every single day can have an impact on how you look and feel. Then you can use your favorite natural beauty products, like our collection at VoCe, to amp up your beauty routine.
Healthy Habits To Get On Board With
First, you can start by taking control of your natural beauty with these six healthy habits to kickstart your own beauty routine.
A Full Night’s Sleep
Getting a good, full night of sleep does wonders for your body--especially the appearance of your face. Sleep deprivation can easily lead to
- Puffy, blood-shot eyes
- Dark under-eye circles
- Wrinkles, wrinkles, and more wrinkles
- Droopy eyelids
The science behind getting a good night of rest? When you are not sleeping enough, your cortisol levels rise, and that results in a loss of collagen. Getting a full 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep is crucial to make sure those cortisol levels stay low, and your collagen stays intact.
Did you know that exercising even just moderately can improve the appearance of your hair and skin? The key is finding an activity that you love and sticking with it. Whether you walk three times a week, attend a daily yoga class, or spend an hour a week jogging, you are doing your body wonders.
Protect Yourself From the Sun
UV rays are damaging on a number of levels and affect the appearance and texture of your skin and hair. Your hair is especially sensitive to the rays as your scalp is easily exposed to the elements. Not only that, but UV rays can lead to discoloration on dyed or treated hair, as well as dryness and a lack of shine on all hair types.
Protecting yourself from the sun’s UV rays is important. Wear sunglasses, cover up your body, wear a hat, and reapply sunscreen liberally on your skin. Staying in the shade from the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. is crucial to protecting your skin as well. During these hours of the day, the UVB rays are at their most intense.
Hydration is important for your body to function properly and for your skin, hair, and everything else to stay looking its best. Hyaluronic acid, found naturally in your skin, is a moisture magnet. When you are hydrated, it is great at holding on to the water you ingest from food and beverages. This makes your skin firmer, fuller, and healthier.
However, when your body is dehydrated, the water goes to other organs instead and leaves your skin feeling thirsty and lackluster.
Your Hair Needs Hydration Too
From heat tools to scalding hot showers, your hair can easily get dehydrated and dry as well, especially during the drier months of winter. Some hair types, such as curly and wiry hair, are more prone to suffering from dryness.
Hydrating your hair is just as important as hydrating your skin, but your hair may need more of a boost than a simple glass of water. Our Hydrate collection is just what your hair needs to soak up that extra moisture and feel its best.
Happiness Is Everything
Stress can be a natural killer of your beauty. It affects how we feel, what we eat, how we react, and more. Also, stress allows your cortisol levels to rise and does a number on your collagen levels. Try spending time you need to keep your stress levels minimal.
Some great ways to keep your happy levels up and your natural beauty shining are:
- Daily meditation
- Treating yourself to a spa day
- Going to the salon for a deep conditioning treatment
- A vigorous workout
- Going for a walk
Skin cells turn over constantly, but sometimes, due to environmental conditions, they need help to fully remove themselves. Assist your skin by exfoliating a few times per week. Keep it natural while you do it! A simple mixture of salt, sugar, honey, and coconut oil will do the trick!

While creating healthy habits is one approach to natural beauty, there is also the use of natural beauty products that create a luxurious and comforting vibe. As we saw in 2020, the importance of hygiene and self-care has been essential. This shift has reshaped the cosmetic and beauty industry and focused on at-home, salon-grade care.
Self-care at home is a beauty trend that is going to go well beyond this past year. With the closures of many salons throughout COVID-19, there has been a growth and demand for high-end, at-home beauty options. Coupled with the shift towards natural beauty, brands like VoCe are finding a place in people’s homes as they indulge in hot baths, home spa nights, and self-applied hair and face masks.
Having premium products that the clean beauty consumers can get behind is crucial to carrying these natural beauty items and trends far into the future. Being able to indulge in your favorite products and feel good about them is a trend we will continue to see. So, being able to compete and help our customers look their best is key.

Trending: At-Home Hair Care 2021
Why are haircare and styling dominating the fashion and beauty industry right now? Well, everyone wants to know how to get results from their home. Whether in natural beauty or just the entire industry as a whole, looking and feeling our best at home is crucial to getting through the months of isolation many of us have been feeling.
Low-maintenance and at-home haircare are game-changers right now, so making sure we can deliver natural beauty to consumers searching for at-home methods is important. Luckily, brands such as VoCe take the consumers' needs into consideration and deliver optimal options that are sure to be on your trending radar when it comes to the clean beauty industry.
Trending: The Need to Know
In addition to really getting at-home results from our haircare products is the consumer’s desire to know what is in their products. Natural beauty is taking a front-row seat, and it is here to stay! The pandemic brought an increased awareness of health and wellness across all aspects of life, and the beauty industry was not immune to this.
Consumers are looking for products that put their needs first—the need to have simple, non-toxic products that effortlessly and effectively help them look their best. VoCe is listening. We also want to know what is in the products we are using, which is why the products we sell are curated to meet your every need for optimal beauty and wellness.
Our philosophy is to help you care for your hair so that you love your hair. We believe the greatest versions of ourselves are deep within, but a good line of beauty products will help bring that inner beauty out.
To get the most out of our beauty routines, we need a combination of healthy habits and products to carry us. Healthy habits have to be part of our routine to help us reap all the benefits of our own bodies before we can even begin to use skincare or hair care products to enhance those characteristics.
In 2021, the trend seems to be focusing even more on self-care grounded on natural beauty. Consumers are not looking for quick, cheap, and easy when it comes to what they are using on their bodies. Ingredients matter now more than ever, so the beauty industry needs to take note and make changes to stay in the game.
With the aid of VoCe products, you can feel great about what you put on your body! From washing your hair to protecting it with masks, VoCe only has your best interests at heart.
