The benefits of plants in your home and your skin health
Create your ultimate environment
it’s no surprise that anti-pollution is leading the field of anti-ageing treatments, to combat the damage of exposure to environmental elements that can cause ageing, accelerated-ageing and premature ageing.
Anti-Pollution doesn’t just come from a Home Kit, Serum or Cream. You can DIY your work and living environment to Live your healthiest life, and eliminate some of the high risk triggers when it comes to skin and pollution induced ageing.
Introduce Negative Ions
Negative ions come from the environment, and are, naturally, the antidote to positive ions - the ones created by technology, and the absence of nature. If you don’t have the luxury of living near a waterfall, the ocean, or in nature rich areas, you can create your own energising space to encourage positive feels and all the natural benefits.
If you love candles in your home, pick up a Himalayan Salt candle and place a couple around your home in your favourite rooms, and where you spend most of your time, and in the tech-hubs of the house - office, living room. Himalayan Salt candles can recreate the benefits of mechanical ionisers. Himalayan Salt contains up to 84 minerals and trace elements, making it a healthy natural source of negative ions.
If you prefer water elements, indoor water features - small fountains, can give the air around them the same benefits as a waterfall (in smaller doses!).
In the 1980s NASA discovered that plants were able to remove chemicals such as benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde from the air. If you live near a main road, dense city, or regularly have the aircon flowing in your home, a healthy addition of plants might be just what you need to live in a cleaner space.
If you spend a lot of time at the office, or your home revolves around time in the study, a healthy work-space will increase productivity and happiness according to studies from the University of Technology, Sydney. Studies found that with the introduction of plants into the workplace, there was a 37% decrease in tension and anxiety, a 44% decrease in anger and hostility; and a 38% reduction in fatigue… Meaning you’ll work better, happier.
