How To Be Mindful About Self-Care This Festive Season

Stay thoughtful with belif and BEYOND

It’s easy to go all-out during the holidays — it’s the perfect excuse to go overboard and splurge especially when you make an excuse that it’s for self-care. But it’s still important to practise mindfulness when it comes to gift-giving — for yourself and for your loved ones — during this season. Guilt-free giving is what we’re after! If you’re unsure of how self-care, holiday gifting and mindfulness can go hand in hand, here are picks from belif and BEYOND that are just right for this purpose.

Clear intentions, clean beauty


It’s the season to show love and we definitely need lots of it considering how trying this entire year has been. Still, it’s important to know that anything in excess can be bad. You want to express your gratitude and affection — but not smother your loved ones (and yourself). Keep it simple, clean and mindful with belif and BEYOND products.

All products from belif are created with the brand’s philosophy of Naturality, Efficacy and Honesty. They’re made with the purest ingredients and are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, mineral oils and ingredients of animal origin. Meanwhile, all products from BEYOND are plant-based and formulated with organic and natural ingredients — all meant to be kind not just to your skin and hair but also the earth. They also adhere to a commitment to help the environment through recyclable and reusable packaging and minimal waste in production.

Be present and nourish your skin now 


It’s perhaps the first thing you see and think about when it comes to self-care, and rightfully so — it’s the biggest organ in your body. So give your skin (and your loved ones’ too) a little more lovin’ without going overboard with the belif Ultra-Nourishing Bomb Set (now at SGD75, worth SGD109).



It consists of the nourishing Aqua bomb sleeping mask that rejuvenates and refreshes dull skin with the help of its unique memory formula that wraps hydration around the contours of the skin, and one of these Bomb of choice: the cult-favourite The true cream - aqua bomb that’s been clinically proven to increase the skin’s hydration levels by 70 per cent, the all-time favourite The true cream - moisturizing bomb that keeps the skin moisturised for 26 hours, the The true cream - water bomb that’s formulated with Water Mint to help lower the skin’s temperature while giving it a burst of hydration, and the Stress shooter - cica bomb cream that’s infused with Centella Asiatica extract for a soothing kind of moisturisation.

Envision a renewal with thoughtfulness 


belif Peat Miracle Skin Revival Set


Give the gift of skin revival and anti-ageing with the belif Peat Miracle Skin Revival Set (now at SGD120, worth SGD194). It contains the supercharged Peat miracle revital serum concentrate that’s packed with 20 per cent concentrated peat extract for a boost in skin’s turnover rate — renewed, radiant skin? Yes, please. It also has the Peat miracle revital eye cream that’s been clinically proven to boost collagen production by 30.41 per cent for eyes that look bright and awake.

Focus on things that go unnoticed 


Mindfulness is not just about being present but also noticing the things you usually don’t. If you’re not giving your body’s skin as much attention as you do your face’s, this is your sign to do so.
