Mindful tips and insight into our latest relaxing retreat! Unwind this week with some easy mindfulness to destress and centre you.
Be Self-Aware, Love Your Body, & Make A Positive Change. They Don’t Call Us Superwomen for Nothing #GirlLove
A large part of Studio One’s ethos is making a healthy lifestyle available for all our clients. Today we will improve your education on feminine hygiene. Why you should be kinder to your vagina, how to access proper care, and ending this wacky taboo on “no working out during your menstruation.”
Why You Should be Kinder To Your Vagina?
When it comes to skin care and food, buying organic has become a trending topic. So, if we are so concerned about what goes on our faces and into our bodies then there should be no excuse in abandoning our vaginas! After all, the skin of the vulva is the most sensitive part of a woman’s body.
In today’s consumerism, there is a wide range of feminine care available. So much so that it’s easy to get lost in what goes into all these products.
Unless its stated otherwise, most feminine care brands are filled with harsh chemicals and pesticides. This is due to helping the cotton grow and keeping pest aside to stop destroying the growing process. Additionally, conventional tampons are also bleached to get that super white look. All these chemicals remain in the product soon after distribution.
One of the major problems is when these tampons shed inside you, causing small cuts that can be filled with bacteria and become further inflamed. This can lead to irritation, itching, and major discomfort.
Plus, you can’t rely on just reading the ingredients, as tampon manufacturers don’t have to disclose the ingredients used in their product. So, what are you really putting inside you?
I’m putting in TOTM 100% organic cotton tampons! A company that strives to protect you while helping the environment. TOTM’s products don’t contain any toxins like parabens, harmful chemicals or bleach. I would recommend any women who Is concerned about their health to give them a go!
Because your intimate health is delicate, investing in a product like TOTM should be a no brainer. You can rest assure, knowing that you are getting a quality product while avoiding the risk of potential harm.
You might also simply choose TOTM to be kinder to the environment. As plastic waste is a growing problem today. Did you know it takes up to 800 years for normal pads to biodegrade? TOTM’s 100% biodegradable tampons dissolve naturally in landfills, so you don’t have to be worried about your DNA hanging around for so long ;)

TOTM is a UK-based company that also delivers worldwide. Not only do they make tampons but also offer a range of pads, and liners to suit your cycle.

No Working Out During Your Menstruation
Now let’s end this crazy taboo once and for all! After hours of research we can confirm that working out during your period is fine, in fact it can even be better?
Working out can help you relieve menstruation pain that makes your period so troublesome to begin with. Anything creating less heavy, less cramping, and less pain we are all in!
Exercise also takes your mind off the discomfort while releasing multiple endorphins. Best work out during your period? HIIT! As this hormone shift creates fuel more accessible to your body, allowing an increase of calorie burning.
Not feeling high intensity workouts? Then just a relaxing Vinyasa Yoga will have you feeling better in no time. As this will help blood flow and reduce inflammation around the body. We encourage you to come to Studio One during your menstruation to relax, unwind, and recharge.
Goodbye Coconut oil, I have a new go-to!
As a Londoner, I can’t seem to get away from the cold, crisp weather that’s stripping my hair from its natural oils, creating dry and damaged locks. My hair goes through constant struggle just to get through the ever-changing seasons.
Therefore, I’ve been on the lookout for an all organic hair gem that does not cost the environment while taking me from sad dead hair to healthy beautiful locks!
As one of my Studio One Change Challenge, I’ve decided to check out Alchemy Oils.
A brand based of oil/serum which works to smooth fly-always, add shine, heat protect, and encourage hair growth to create the long luscious locks I’ve always wanted.
Over the past weeks, I have Integrated it into my beauty routine, and now it’s become an absolute staple!
Don’t get me wrong, I was first terrified to try oils on my hair, the last thing I want is greasy hair… Not attractive at ALL! However, I was pleasantly surprised by the light weight texture of the oil. It worked wonders, penetrating deep into my skin causing my hair to not only look nourished but feel silky smooth.
Within four days of testing these oils, I notice an outstanding change in both feel and strength.
How I Use It
Before I shower I usually massage Amla Hair Remedy into my scalp, and slowly working it down through the tips of my hair. Once my hair is covered in hair gold I wait around for one or two hours, perfect time to catch up on emails! Then I shower, life has never been easier.
For Damp Hair
Place a few drops of oil on the ends of your hair, then let air dry or blow dry. Style as usual and enjoy that summer grapefruit smell all day long!
Overall the oils are wonderful, I can wake up without the fear of questioning if it’s going to be a good or bad hair day. As an all vegan, cruelty free, no parabens, organic brand I’m a proud supporter of Alchemy Oils, thanks for introducing me to hair goals!
Did we also mention they will be at our first Fit Friday Event, come try them out and see the hair magic for yourself!
A nourishing blend of 5 super oils to improve the condition of and strengthen your hair from within. No chemicals, parabens, sulphates, just oil.
As I sit here with Lani oil in my hair and my face smelling of gorgeous Neroli flower (from the oodles of Brit Oil) , I may sound a state but I am having the time of my life. What else is January for if not a bit of indulgence?
As a city worker, new mum and modern gal, I totally abuse my skin. I don’t have a lot of spare time and as a result my skin care suffers. In line with The Studio One Method Change Challenge, one of my small changes for the new year is to make sure that I not only looked after my body but also my skin. First step….find the best products
