The White and Elm Woman Profile: The Yogi


by Devon Ost October 06, 2015

While you are all, or at least have the potential to be, a White & Elm woman, we know we are not all the same!

We’ve shown you a Day in the Life of the “average” White & Elm Woman, but now we’re going into specifics! This post will be profiling a day in the life of the W&E Yogi!

I wake up early and greet the day with gratitude and a positive affirmation to set my day up right.

I roll out of bed and set out into my mindful meditation practice right away. It doesn’t take much to center myself; I meditate for ten minutes and feel ready for whatever the day throws my way.

I hop in the steamy shower and immediately reach for my Sweet Almond Foaming Cleanser. As I gently massage the cleanser on my face it awakens my senses and refreshes my mind.

I’ve been vegan for a few years now so I don’t consume any animal by-products but that also means I choose not to use any products that are not vegan either. That’s one of the reasons I love White & Elm, they are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, so I can rest easy.

I grab a green-juice on my to work. After work I head to the studio to practice some hot yoga to relieve myself of today’s stress.

Later on, while my dinner is cooking, I mix up a Spirulina Superfood Mask which I follow up with the Rosehip and Argan Antioxidant Serum to protect and revive my skin.

I fall asleep, grateful for today and all the days to come.

The Key to Making Healthy Skincare Rituals
The Key to Making Healthy Skincare Rituals

by Devon Ost May 07, 2017

Creating a daily skincare ritual for yourself gives you an opportunity to experience the moment. By committing to a ritual we not only see the immediate benefit for our skin, but we also begin to see patterns that evolve. Much like in yoga when your asana feels different from day-to-day. Only when you begin to see patterns can you begin to understand your skin.

Exfoliation: What is it and Why is it important?

While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.
