WEDNESDAY : Take care of your skin

Try something new with the EQ Love moisturising after-sun milk EQ moisturising after-sun milk . It’s light, cool and gentle texture , soothes and hydrates the skin while providing an immediate sensation of comfort and refreshment. With a base of aloe vera, argan and safflower oil, let it sink in for 10 minutes and then remove with a makeup wipe… it’ll leave your skin beautifully soft and moisturised without making it greasy!

THURSDAY : Yoga / Flexibility and balance

Now that you’re getting into yoga, you can go a bit further by combining poses, balance and improving your suppleness. Here are three positions that you can try today:

Take five deep breaths when you’ve got into each of these poses.

1 – Grand plié, knees rolled outwards, straight back

2 – Sideways plank pose, bend your upper leg and extend your arms.

3 – In a sitting position, place your left leg behind you (with your foot facing the floor to protect the knees), place your right leg on your thigh and hold your foot with your right arm.

If the third pose seems a bit too complicated, don’t force yourself – try the butterfly pose instead (sitting down, legs pulled towards you, knees rolled outwards and feet pointed).


FRIDAY : Reduce your impact on the environment

Today, we’re looking at our impact on the planet, focussing on two gestures that could change the world for the better if thousands of people implemented it:
If you don’t do this already, try sorting your rubbish into three separate bins (organic, glass and plastic rubbish) and turning off all electronic appliances that you’re not using at that time.
