- Behind the brand
Thank you so much to everyone that participated in our UMA All-Natural 7-Day Challenge. One week later and we're feeling great about starting the year off in such a healthy way! We'd like to give a special shout out to our influencers that helped spread the word and got so many of you involved. With 527 #UMAallnatural hashtag mentions and nearly 60 participants, we'd say the challenge was a huge success!
All month, we've been celebrating the real, natural ingredients found in our products. We wanted to start a dialogue and encourage you to consciously question what you're putting in and on your bodies. Throughout the last week of January, we'd like to invite you to join us in our effort to live more naturally with easy, actionable steps and a chance to win an UMA Detox Bundle!
Steps to Pure, Natural Lifestyle
- Day 1 (1/23): Try oil pulling with coconut or sesame oil first thing in the morning to promote oral health rather than using mouthwash packed with cancer-causing chemicals.
- Day 2 (1/24): Trade your daily cup of coffee for a metabolism-boosting, antioxidant-filled cup of herbal tea. Not only will you get a steadier energy boost, but you’ll be doing your skin a favor with tea’s inherent compounds that are great for skin elasticity and circulation.
- Day 3 (1/25): Only eat non-processed food all day. Try one of our recipes if you need ideas!
- Day 4 (1/26): Use only beauty products with ingredients you can pronounce.
- Day 5 (1/27): Detox your body with warm lemon water in the morning to improve digestion, support liver detoxification, and reduce bloating. Have a spoonful of flaxseed oil before bed to flush out toxins and get a boost of omega-3 fatty acids.
- Day 6 (1/28): Pre-shower, stimulate your lymphatic system and boost circulation with dry brushing. Dedicate 3-5 minutes to massage the body with firm, small strokes in a circular motion towards the heart, starting from the feet and working your way up to the neck and face. At night, give your body a rub down with the oil that best suits your dosha. Discover yours via the link in our bio.
- Day 7 (1/29): Meditate for 5 minutes with the help of an essential oil. Sandalwood, frankincense, and chamomile are especially soothing. Any of our Wellness Oils will do the trick, especially our grounding Gorgeous for Good blend! Essential oils will help you reach a meditative state and promote focus, clarity, and relaxation. Not quite ready for meditation? Just try switching out your perfume for an essential oil with luscious scent notes to reap the benefits all-day long.Commit to the all-natural life with us! Each day of the challenge, we’re asking you to take an actionable step towards a healthier lifestyle. Let’s hold each other accountable and start treating our bodies better together.
