Hormonal health in your daily routine

We’re always told to take care of our bodies but there’s a lot that goes into it beyond eating your veggies and getting your 10k steps in. We need to talk about hormonal health! Our hormones influence every part of our body, from the brain to our mood and all the systems (organs, fertility, hunger, etc).

Nurturing your hormonal health is fundamental to a healthy body and we’ve put together easy steps to do so in your daily routine:

Here at Uqora, we know how hormones can drastically affect all aspects of our body including our urinary health. Changes in our estrogen levels play a direct role in the urinary tract.

In addition to taking your Uqora regimen consistently, Blume shares other lifestyle tips to keep hormonal health top of mind.  

Tips to put your hormonal health first

Regular routine exercise:

Doesn’t mean the workout is routine but the practice should be! Mix it up with all the fun YouTube workouts, stretches and guided meditations available or have fun with it and workout with a friend IRL to boost endorphins!

Monitor your sugar intake:

Simple but a tough one, especially for our sweet-toothed friends. Substitute your soda with an iced water with lemon! Trust us, it’ll be worth it.

Manage your stress levels:

Stress can feel all too real, especially in 2020. Track your stress levels in a journal or on your phone to see what triggers it and dedicate a daily routine (big or small) to practice some self care whether that’s skin care, your fave Netflix show or a quick clean up of your space.

Get enough sleep in!

What day of the week is it?! Allow yourself 15 mins before bed without the phone and try to get 8 hours of sleep in a day and let that work its magic. This will help your body rest, reset and regenerate the hormones in your body for a new day ahead.

When selecting products for our hormonal health, it's important to be mindful of ingredients. Uqora and Blume both prioritize using ingredients found in nature.

Clean beauty:

Self care should be good for your body and the environment, not disruptive. You want to find skin and body care products with transparent ingredient lists you can trust and we love Blume’s line of natural self care products to do all that (and more). Blume focuses on smashing taboos of very normal experiences like puberty, acne, periods and sex ed.
