We're all about cruelty free beauty here at Depths, and vegan products in particular are finding their spotlight in the natural beauty space, matching the current rapidly increasing  rate of people who associate with a vegan lifestyle.

WHY VEGAN LIPSTICKS?
  • Certified Vegan lipsticks mean the brand is not testing on animals - so our little bunnies, guinea pigs and mice are safe
  • Many mainstream lippies derive colouring from our animal friends - like carmine, a bright red pigment from the cochineal beetle, or lanolin, from sheep’s wool
  • Vegan lippies are incredibly nourishing, using yummy ingredients like shea butter, jojoba and natural oils like olive and coconut, to ensure our lips are super kissable. Plus, they taste yummy too! It’s a win-win!
OUR FAVOURITE ANIMAL-FRIENDLY LIPPIESClove + Hallow  - Lip Velvet, Glaze and Creme

This beautiful brand offers all vegan Peta certified and clean cosmetics - when Peta backs a brand, you are onto a GOOD thing. These lippies are straight from the US, and available via The Well Store here in Aus:

  • Founded by a professional makeup artist, so the product really performs
  • Ingredients include coconut oil, shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba offering hydration, soothing dry lips and long lasting performance
  • A variety of shades and finishes available from bright and shiny to neutral and matte

Inika Certified Organic Vegan Lipsticks

You guys know how much we love the entire Inika product range, and their vegan lipsticks are no exception!

  • Featuring certified organic argan, avocado and jojoba oils
  • A beautifully creamy application, nourishing and hydrating for the lips
  • Colours range from creamy nudes and pastels to richer winter shades
WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING VEGAN...

Remember: just because a product is vegan, doesn’t necessarily make it 100% naturally derived.

Key carcinogenic/toxic ingredients to look out for in your lippies include:

  • Artificial colouring
  • Silicon
  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Anything difficult to pronounce or with a number code stuck to the end of it
WHY WE LOVE THE WELL STORE

Not only is The Well Store an incredible online hub for all things natural beauty, BUT their VEGAN search tab makes it SUPER easy to find products that are certified vegan - they do the thinking for us, and feature some of our favourite vegan brands, including:

  • La Mav

While Winter can be a challenge to some (ahem, Team Depths!) being able to snuggle under your favourite blanket with a hot cup of tea is certainly one of its perks.

Herbal teas come with an array of benefits depending on the herbs and spices they contain, and are also a fabulous (and easy) way of ensuring you keep your water intake up during the colder months.

It’s important however that we choose a good quality, organic tea packed full of nourishing ingredients.

Why Organic?

Let’s consider for a moment just how we brew a beautiful cup of tea – we literally boil and steep the tea to extract all of its content. If the chosen tea is not organic, along with extracting all of its goodies, we are also extracting a bunch of harmful pesticides and herbicides.

To avoid this, we want to ensure the tea we choose is organic, so remember to keep an eye out for the Australian Certified Organic stamp when making your selection.

HERBS TO LOOK OUT FOR...Tulsi  
  • a potent immune supporting herb
  • great for fighting infection and promoting healing
Yarrow
  • a great herb for fighting bacteria and viruses and alleviating allergies
  • assists digestion and detoxification
Echinacea
  • one of the best immune herbs
  • reduces your chances of catching that yucky cold or flu
Elderberry
  • fabulous for soothing a sore throat, cough or cold
  • antibacterial properties to help fight off the winter flu
Ginger
  • supports circulation, improves metabolism and reduces inflammation
  • promotes digestion and fights infection
Licorice
  • a wonderful adaptogen, helping us to deal with stress
  • supports the adrenals
  • anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and a demulcent meaning it soothes the digestive tract alllll the way from the mouth downward
Lemon myrtle
  • helpful in treating the cold, flu, bronchitis and digestive discomfort
Chamomile
  • beautifully calming
  • helps fight stress and anxiety and promotes relaxation.
  • Supports digestion and relieves congestion in the respiratory system

At Depths, we believe that growing old is a privilege, we love smile lines and think there is nothing more beautiful than embracing our skin and bodies as we mature. There are ways however, that we can protect our bodies and skin against oxidative stress to slow this process down and ensure we are feeling our absolute best and that our skin is in the best possible condition it can be in given the huge amounts of free radicals we are faced with daily.

 Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative stress is the inability of the body to counteract free radicals with antioxidant protection. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can interfere with DNA and can cause cell damage. When this happens to our skin cells we notice changes in skin elasticity, texture and vibrance so they key youthful looking skin is keeping these cells healthy and happy.

 

Antioxidants?

This is why the word antioxidant is thrown around SO much! But what does it mean? Antioxidants are basically what protect our bodies and skin from oxidative stress caused my free radicals. They protect cells from damage and can even repair damaged cells.

Here are some of the best supports for preventing oxidative stress and boosting the body with antioxidants for youthful, glowing skin!

Clove
  • Super high in antioxidants
  • It has an ORAC value of 300 000 compared to blueberries who have 6000
  • They are also antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal
  • Great for tooth and gum health too
Frankincense
  • Can protect skin cells because of its high antioxidant profile
  • Antimicrobial and antibacterial
  • Can reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and skin irritation
  • Applying topically may improve the texture and elasticity of the skin
OreganoChaga Mushroom
  • An adaptogen that can reduce stress in the body which is a key cause of skin cell breakdown
  • Antimicrobial and antiviral
  • Contains enzymes called Super Oxide Dismutase which protect the body against free radicals and oxidative stress 
Cinnamon
  • Very high in antioxidants so again great for protecting skin cells
  • Helps to balance blood sugar levels which can also reduce stress that can cause skin cell damage
  • Anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial
  • Due to its anti-inflammatory qualities can promote skin health through topical application too!

Sleep is our number one (and most underrated) portal to optimum health. It almost sounds too simple right?! Snooze your way to better health?! Yes, please! And it's true! Making sure we are getting enough sleep is the first step but then, even more importantly - making sure we are getting QUALITY shut eye- this is where the magic lies! Read on to for our best tips for optimum shut eye...

WHY GETTING ENOUGH SHUT EYE IS SO IMPORTANT:
  • Research has shown quality sleep can lead to reduced signs of skin ageing and faster recovery from a variety of environmental stressors
  • Lack of sleep can cause long term mental and emotional health implications due to an excess of cortisol in the blood stream
  • It can help alleviate stress levels
  • Supports maintaining vital and positive energy
  • Gives you the best chance at a rocking libido
  • Prevents disease including heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes
  • Works well in managing mental illness including depression and anxiety
A SLEEP EXPERTS TOP 3 TIPS FOR WINDING DOWN...

As told by Sleep Expert Rachel Holm from Hanako Therapies:

  • Create a sanctuary for yourself and create some mindful rituals. When you arrive home from a day of work let yourself relax. Get comfy, keep the lights dimmed, create ambience with candles and place some relaxing essential oils in a diffuser to set the tone. Take a nice hot bath with a dreamy bath soak to destress the mind and body or take a hot shower and drop a few drops of Lavender pure essential oil on the floor and breathe deeply then wear all white when you get out, you’ll instantly feel lighter and brighter and feel yourself physically, emotionally and mentally unwind.

  • Create a sacred hour before bed where you take time to do something for yourself that is relaxing and chill. Honour this time. Keep negativity to a minimum, this means know thyself…. If you know social media, blue light from the screen or emails are going to set you into a spin then set a time limit to this activity and do it in the early hours of the evening, if at all. Then or instead, try reading a feel good, mindful or uplifting book, or, begin a journal for dumping thoughts, emotions and ideas. Don’t read it back just use it to creatively express yourself and all that runs through the mind at the time. Dump, dump, dump, and let it all go.

  • Meditate using Left Nostril breathing. This activates our Ida energy, our Moon energy. The moon energy is reflective, calm and cooling. Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight. Place the left-hand palm up on the left knee. Lift your right hand to the nose, with your fingers outstretched, gently block of your right nostril with your thumb. Breathe in through the Left nostril for a count of 4 and exhale out through the left nostril for a count of 4. Try this exercise for 3 minutes then see if you can build to 11 mins. This Meditation will encourage deep and full relaxation for a better night’s sleep. You’ll also feel clearer and focused.
