GET READY TO

Glow

Welcome to The Celebration Issue of our brand magazine, Glow by Tropic.

T

he last year or so may have left us feeling like there hasn’t been much to celebrate, but there’s no denying that it’s made us more appreciative for the everyday things that keep the spring in our step, our ability to adapt and still achieve things (even the small wins) and the people who lift us up when we need it. So, whether it’s toasting our health, our loved ones, ourselves, our incredible planet or everything in between, in this issue we’re getting the party started with a very celebratory theme. From the amazing green spaces we get to enjoy right here in the UK to why celebrating our pasts and the unique communities we surround ourselves with is so important, this latest issue of Glow delves into what celebration means for different people, in all its beautiful forms. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration issue without giving a very appreciative nod to the daily rituals that provide a spot of sunshine, even on the greyest of days. Whether

it’s a pop of colourful lipstick or a meditative evening cleanse, there’s much to be said about the celebratory power of skincare and makeup – and you may spot some brand new products in our line-up to help you enjoy just that! At Tropic, celebration is a big part of what makes us tick. We aim to celebrate our planet by preserving it for future generations, whether that’s through double offsetting our carbon emissions or supporting environmental organisations around the world. We also strive to celebrate and empower people from all backgrounds, providing support for amazing charities such as Young Women’s Trust, the Winnie Mabaso Foundation, the Trussell Trust and of course, United World Schools. Because celebration isn’t just about enjoying the moment, it’s also about generating change that can be celebrated for years to come. Often, that is the true beauty of celebration. It can happen anywhere and at any time, and the positive

ripples it causes can really be endless. The big parties and monumental occasions are, of course important (not to mention fun), but equally poignant are the kind words shared around an intimate dinner table, the ways we champion others who may not have had the opportunities we did, or the praise we give ourselves to motivate us to keep going. We all have something unique to offer the world and that in itself is the greatest celebration of all. And even if you’re still figuring out what your contribution is, that’s okay – get ready to raise a glass and enjoy some celebration inspiration along the way!

About Us

Our Infinite Purpose is to help create a healthier, greener, more empowered world. That’s the first thing you need to know about us because it influences every decision we make as a brand, from the products we launch and the ingredients we use to our certifications and charity partnerships. It’s a big goal, and one we’re very proud of, but like most brands, we started off a little smaller.

EARLY INSPIRATIONS

2004

Our Founder, Susie Ma, drew inspiration for Tropic from two sources. The first was her grandma, a medicinal chemist and toxicologist, who taught her that our skin needs feeding with nourishing, healthy ingredients just as much as our bodies do. The second was her upbringing in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, Australia, where fresh aloe vera plants and exotic fruit trees pretty much grew on her doorstep! This would later have a huge impact on the beauty products Susie created, and it’s also where we got our name from.

SUCCESS IN A JAM JAR

After moving to London as a teenager, Susie decided to start selling her favourite body scrub recipe to help her mum with the household bills. While most of us were smuggling our favourite snacks into the cinema at age fifteen, Susie was pouring her first batch of body scrubs into 50 jam jars to sell at Greenwich Market. While she was studying, Susie devoted nights and weekends to formulating recipes and making products – with her mum’s kitchen quickly turning into a makeshift beauty lab.

2011

BUILDING OUR FOUNDATIONS

You may recognise Susie from her appearance on BBC’s The Apprentice back in 2011. Lord Alan Sugar was so impressed by her products that he invested to become a 50/50 partner, and Tropic moved from Susie’s mum’s kitchen to our first ever Tropic HQ.

AW 2021 | ISSUE 3 | GLOW | 5


2013

OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Susie loved building personal relationships with her customers on her market stalls, and that’s one of the main reasons why we launched our social selling model in 2013, with just 400 founding Ambassadors. To put into perspective how much we’ve grown since then, we now celebrate a whopping 20,000+ Ambassadors.

Now

BACK TO THE FUTURE

Tropic has come a long way since Susie started out. We've been recognised by The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track as one of the UK’s fastest-growing skincare brands, and our award-winning product range has expanded to include skincare, body care, hair care, sun care and makeup.

OUR

Infinite Purpose

HEALTHIER

We strive to stay ahead of the curve in natural ingredient research, supercharging our formulations with ingredients such as plant peptides, encapsulated vitamins and plant ceramides. We also firmly believe that what you put on your skin should be as fresh as possible, which is why we freshly make products at HQ every day. We source our ingredients from tropical regions around the world to ensure they’re rich in antioxidants and nutrients.

GREENER

We aim to do as much as possible to minimise our environmental impact and create more sustainable options within the beauty industry. We’re a proudly

certified CarbonNeutral® company, which means we invest in conservation projects to double offset our carbon emissions, and we’re working on making even more of our range refillable. We’ve always been dedicated to animal welfare and stand with The Vegan Society and PETA as a 100% cruelty-free and vegan brand, now and always.

EMPOWERED

We won’t ever stop working to empower more people – and that’s inclusive of everyone.It’s why we launched our charity partnership with United World Schools, to ensure every Tropic purchase helps fund education for children living in some of the world’s poorest and most remote

To help create a healthier, greener, more empowered world. regions. It’s why we’ve donated to – and will continue to support – The Winnie Mabaso Foundation, which works with children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa, and Young Women’s Trust, supporting young women aged 18 to 30 who are living on low or no pay and want to build a better future. And finally, it’s why we’ve teamed up with Beam and the Trussell Trust, both charities that are dedicated to helping the poor and vulnerable members of our society. So, now we’re thoroughly introduced, we hope you enjoy this issue of Glow as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it for you, and enjoy some celebrations along the way!


READY TO

refill

As part of our Infinite Purpose, we offer a Refill Returns Scheme for a number of our products that are a bit trickier to recycle at home. To qualify for the scheme, you must send back five of the same products to receive a free product of the same type, and they must be sent back to us together. The exception is our sun care range, where you can return any five empty sun care products to receive a free mini Sun Day! This scheme is currently only available for certain products in our range, so as you’re browsing through your copy of Glow, look out for the icon below which indicates if a product is included in the scheme.

Refill Returns Scheme is available for selected products only. The five products returned must all be the same type and returned together in order to qualify for one free product of the same type. This excludes sun care, where five of any empty sun care product can be returned for a free mini Sun Day. A lot of our refillable products aren't automatically part of the Refill Returns Scheme because they're easily recycled at home. Always look out for this icon which indicates if a product can be refilled, and this icon to see if the product is part of the Refill Returns Scheme.

OUR GREEN ROOTS:

FROM TROPIC HQ,

to everything we do

Tropic aims to be a force for good beyond beauty, keeping our Infinite Purpose at the heart of everything we do. It not only defines our brand DNA, but guides each and every business decision and product launch. Here are just a few ways we implement our Infinite Purpose at Tropic HQ.

02 01

Each formulation is created in Tropic’s Innovation Lab at HQ, harnessing the best in green skincare science. For freshness, products are made on-site. With thousands of orders placed every day, it’s important that our beauty is green. All the energy at our HQ, where we manufacture 98% of the products we sell, is from 100% renewable sources. This is so our customers – that's you – can be proud of supporting every single component of what we do.

Our HQ is home to more than 200 plants, which are watered from a supply of rain run-off. In fact, all of the numerous water-saving initiatives that we’ve implemented at HQ

03

save over half a million litres of water a year collectively. In 2020, we recycled 122 tonnes, which equated to 65% of all our waste. Anything we can’t recycle is repurposed into an alternative fuel (that replaces fossil fuels) to power homes and businesses.

We want to conserve our oceans and the marine life that lives there, which is why our entire SPF sun care range is Protect Land + Sea certified, making it completely reef-safe. As well as this, 10% of the profits from our newest serum, Ocean Dive (p24), are donated to the Reef Restoration Foundation in Cairns, Australia.


AWARD-WINNING BEAUTY With more than 250 prestigious awards and accolades, recognising everything from our product range to our brand ethics and achievements, here are a few of our top award-winning moments from the past few years.

04

Since becoming a CarbonNeutral® certified company, we've delivered over £2 million worth of value to households, infrastructure and biodiversity through double offsetting our carbon emissions. Through this initiative, we’ve funded conservation work in the Amazon Rainforest and helped to protect 65,000 hectares of forest from unsustainable palm oil conversion in Indonesia.

05

We’ve been ethically accredited for four years and are independently endorsed by the The Good Shopping Guide, with a score of 100/100 which covers a wide range of criteria. This includes animal welfare, human rights and the environment.

WINNER

06

Tropic’s entire makeup and sun care ranges comprise refillable, recyclable or returnable (for free) products. We’re also helping our customers to live a lower-impact lifestyle, with a packaging returns initiative that's available for many of our products. Our game-changing Colour Palette is also completely refillable, minimising waste from your beauty routine. Its innovative design has prevented more than 15 tonnes of plastic waste from being generated, when compared to our previous makeup collection.

celebration

THE

CONVERSATION

I sit down with Susie to discuss the multifaceted meaning of celebration in her life, from her favourite Tropic event to her thoughts on bringing smaller moments of joy into our day-to-day lives. By Callum McManus Celebration. It’s the invisible thread woven through the tapestry of our lives, from its earliest appearances as we’re showered with more gifts than our pudgy newborn hands could ever know what to do with, to the assorted family gatherings we have come to know and love. When I begin my conversation with Susie, I know why I believe in living a life full of celebration – it’s an excuse to eat copious amounts of food I haven’t paid for – but I suspect she might have a more thoughtful answer. I’m proven correct almost instantly. “We get one life, and there is so much to celebrate if you look for it. Celebrate who you are, celebrate those around you. I believe we have so many holidays and traditions simply because we’re looking for any excuse to be close with the ones we love, and there’s really nothing more wonderful than that.” That celebratory spirit of togetherness and connecting with those most special to us was there on day one when Susie officially launched Tropic back in 2011. “I called everyone I cared about and then I had an amazing meal with my mum that night – I wish I could remember what I ate, but I do know that I was just so beyond happy to be sat there with her.” It’s safe to say that in the decade since, Susie’s kept celebration front and centre at Tropic, from the yearly summer and Christmas parties to the legendary Ambassador vacations. I ask her if there’s one particular event that’s stood out. “Carlton (Tropic’s Director of Operations), Connor (our Brand and Social Responsibility Manager) and I were lucky enough to go to the opening of the school we’ve funded in Cambodia through our partnership with United World Schools. That evening, we got to celebrate with the locals and it was an absolutely unforgettable experience. We were in the middle of this remote town dancing with the residents all night and eating delicious, freshly grown local foods. That’s one of those moments you just know will stick with you forever.” Of course, those big, seminal moments are what our minds immediately turn to when we hear the word ‘celebration’,

10 | GLOW | ISSUE 3 | AW 2021

but I also want to know Susie’s perspective on how we can all find little ways to celebrate ourselves on a more regular basis. “Controlling every single aspect of our lives is completely impossible, but I think that we get to choose how we see the world. Take time to prioritise the things that make you happy, even if those are only small moments each day like listening to a song you like on repeat, cooking a meal you love or wearing clothes that put a smile on your face. Just doing what you love is really a sign of celebrating yourself.” I’m intrigued to hear how Susie herself celebrates life while moving through difficult times, and she tells me, “I’ll close my eyes, visualise myself from far away and think ‘What’s the worst thing that can happen? Will it matter in five years?’. If not, I don’t give it more than five minutes’ thought. We can have tunnel vision on such minute details of our day-to-day lives and really lose sight of what’s important. Keeping the big picture in view is so helpful in allowing me to just celebrate living in the here and now – well, that and dancing around my kitchen to all of my favourite songs.” So ultimately, we come right back to where we started; home, family and celebrating those we love the most. “There’s one person I really love to celebrate, and that’s my mum. Every year on her birthday, I take her on holiday to places I know she’ll love, where we can enjoy relaxing and spending time together. Each one of those trips holds such special memories for me, because they’re with the person I care about most in the world. My mum is the kindest, most spectacular person I know. She’s my rock.” And after that perfect ending, I can’t resist asking Susie to humour me with one final question... if she had to celebrate right now, how would she do it? “With cake. The softest Victoria sponge cake with fresh strawberries and maybe even some coconut flakes on top. It’s either that or a coffee and walnut cake, with plenty of coffee cream in the middle.” I thank Susie and make a mental note to head to the nearest bakery. After all, such a successful interview deserves a celebration!

HOW TO USE

Here are our top tips to help you get the most out of your skincare products! 1. If using Smoothing Cleanser, gently steam your skin with our Bamboo Face Cloth. Place the warm cloth over your face and breathe deeply. 2. When wiping your face with the cloth, be as gentle as possible and avoid any tugging or pulling. 3. Keep your cloth clean! Wash it daily with a pH-balanced product such as our Signature Hand Wash. 4. When applying your Smoothing Cleanser, treat yourself to an uplifting massage. If second cleansing, add a few drops of water to your chosen powder (Clear Skies or Clear Slate) and gently massage around the face, focusing on the T-zone and oily areas. 5. Always apply Skin Feast in an upward motion on your neck and face to help lift the skin. 6. If you’re adding serums, oils and balms to your routine after cleansing, always apply in order of the most water content to the least. So for example, toner, serum, moisturiser, oil and then balm. 7. Apply your mask only where your skin needs it, for example, you may choose to only apply our Clear Skin mask to your T-zone.

pore-clearing serum

£42 | 30ml

With 31 Free Bamboo Buds | PPLB Without 31 Free Bamboo Buds | PPL • Exfoliating • Blemish-preventing • Purifying Our first ever serum designed to be used on targeted areas using the accompanying Bamboo Buds. Wave goodbye to excess oil, individual blemishes and clogged pores as this potent product works its magic. • Who ever said three’s a crowd? This serum combines a potent trio of fulvic, lactic and salicylic acids at the optimum percentages for oily areas of skin to help unclog pores and kill the bacteria that causes acne and blemishes. The reason these acids work so well together is because while fulvic and lactic acids are effective in clearing surface buildup of dead skin cells, oil-soluble salicylic acid is able to travel deep into pores to unblock them from within. • A powerful antioxidant, ocean-born blue algae provides your skin with a defensive shield against free radical and pollution damage, while also working to keep your complexion hydrated. • Charcoal works harmoniously alongside all the acids in this product to draw out impurities from deep within pores, effectively removing blemish-causing bacteria. • The accompanying Bamboo Buds are made from sustainable cotton and bamboo fibres and are completely biodegradable, so you can just pop them in your compost or food waste after use!

• Blemish-preventing • Smoothing • Pore-refining The skin’s microbiome is a hot topic in beauty because the healthier it is, the clearer your complexion. That’s why it makes sense that those with blemish-prone skin have a less diverse microbiome. • Coming to the rescue with all the ingredients needed to nourish your microbiome back to good health, prebiotics and bioflavonoids are served up alongside vitamin B3 and zinc, to help slow sebum production and refine pore appearance. • Copper PCA, malachite mineral extracts and blue spirulina soothe and nip redness in the bud. Feisty flare-ups will become a thing of the past.

Tamanu oil aids healthy skin growth and reduces the appearance of scarring. • Green coffee is full of fatty acids and vitamin E to provide protection from skin damage, so this oil is basically a superhero cape for your complexion.

• Brightening • Smoothing • Pore-refining When a serum smells like holidays, there’s no excuse not to slather it on your skin! This exfoliating, resurfacing serum carefully gets rid of dead skin cells and dirt, leaving you with an all-round brighter complexion in less than 24 hours. • Using an exfoliating trio of alpha, beta and polyhydroxy acids from fresh fruit, adding this to your routine will refine the texture of your skin so it feels just peachy. • There’s more to this serum’s fruity powers though, with papaya enzymes working to dissolve keratin protein – which can cause skin to be bumpy – as well as loosening dead skin cells. • Lime pearl extract contains an additional helping of citric acids to brighten and even your complexion.

"This is by far the best exfoliator I’ve used, and I’ve tried a few. It feels smooth and 3-4 drops are enough for the whole face, as it quietly does the work. Recently, I started using Fruit Peel on my husband’s face too and can see the effects already! Fewer spots and more refined pores. Really great product." AGA, TROPIC CUSTOMER

lthough our skincare products can be used by everyone, we’ve created a range of products that are specifically tailored to male skin.

What’s the difference, we hear you ask? Well, generally male skin is thicker, it’s far more oily, men have larger pores and their skin ages at a different rate to female skin. • Men have more active sebaceous glands, and therefore more pores, than women. Both the glands and pores also tend to be larger on men than women.

• Adult males are less prone to dry skin than adult females. • Regular shaving tends to mean that male skin can be more stressed and disrupted than female skin. Specially formulated for skin that’s sebum-rich, has visible pores and is generally oily (or for anyone who shaves), these products are designed with men in mind. However, they can be used by anybody with an oily or non-dry complexion.

Flirty, playful and pout-enhancing, Patsy O’Neill has shown Shauna’s lips a shade of red that brings a bold touch to this bronzed look. When asked what she likes to celebrate about herself, Shauna told us she’s pretty proud of her “good, thick, Irish hair!” We can’t disagree with her there...

‘THE TEMPTRESS’ ON LAURA Laura’s lush pink lips and smoky, red carpet eyes give off a real ‘too glam to give a damn’ aura. By enhancing her natural smile with a pastel shade and tying it into the cheeks, Dani Guinsberg has given Laura an approachable yet dazzling demeanour that will make everyone want to get up and dance with her, day or night! When asked what she likes to celebrate about herself, Laura told us, “I feel comfortable in my own skin, which is something that just gets even better with time!”

Fresh-faced and fancy-free, Emily Wood’s look on Harry only worked to enhance his heartthrob hair and piercing eyes. “When you’re applying the lip liner,” Emily told us, “use your finger to brush round the perimeter of the lip to give a more diffused look and create the illusion that you have bigger lips, yet don’t have a lot of product on there.”

Silver Linings NOTEBOOK

Why practising gratitude and celebrating what we have is the mental health hack we should all make part of our routines.

By Elizabeth Kennedy

W

hen we think of celebrations, our minds tend to settle on exuberant parties, room-filling applause and monumental milestones. However, while all of these celebrations are, of course, important – and not to mention pretty novel after the year we’ve had – there’s definitely something to be said about the power of the smaller celebrations, or the petite parties if that’s more your vibe. Appreciating the small things (the ones we sometimes take for granted) each day is an exercise that can be peacefully meditative and grounding, help us to feel more present and and send our mindset in a more positive direction. As a naturally glass-half-full type, I’ve always felt I’m fairly appreciative and positive in my mindset, but

96 | GLOW | ISSUE 3 | AW 2021

even the peppiest among us often struggled to see the silver linings when we were thrust into a nationwide lockdown, a few times over. The parts of my life I was most grateful for – seeing my family and friends (in person), travelling to new places and going to my favourite restaurants – were no longer available to maintain the spring in my step. It was after many of us were told that we couldn’t see our families at Christmas that my celebratory supplies ran empty. It didn’t feel like there was much to celebrate, and the festive season felt distinctly, well, un-festive. Feeling uncharacteristically low, I decided to try my hand at gratitude journaling, something I’d previously unfairly, and rather cynically, dismissed as belonging in the same realm as crystal healing and

tarot reading (although if I’m honest, I’d have given those a fair go too). And although sticking to writing in my journal each day had a shaky start, as is often the case with new habits, I soon found that taking three minutes at the end of the day to celebrate what had made me smile, laugh or feel comforted was something I really cherished and looked forward to. There’s never anything too elaborate, and more often than not it’ll be a sunny morning, a phone call with my sister or a coffee that hits just right, but this daily ritual of celebrating the small moments of bliss has become an essential part of my mental health maintenance, even after normal life has returned. On some level, we all know that being grateful is a good thing, saying thank you is one of the


A BRUSH OF POSITIVITY Saying some positive affirmations to yourself while brushing your teeth in the morning, such as “Who I am is more valuable than what I own”, sets you up for the day feeling positive, and it’s easy to remember because you do it alongside an existing step in your morning routine.

A GRATITUDE STRETCH

first social etiquettes we learn as children, but why can it have such a positive impact on our brains when practised regularly? Psychologist Dr Audrey Tang explains that: “positive psychology (the study of what makes people more likely to thrive, even through adversity) has been a growing field since the 1980s. Over the years, it’s been found that a positive mindset can be linked to greater life satisfaction, a higher cheerfulness rating, lower reports of depression, a greater sense of wellbeing and also physical health benefits such as lower blood pressure, longer life expectancy and a lower risk of cardiac events.” And even better news for those who err on the side of glasshalf-empty, Tang explains that we can “retrain our brain to behave more positively, taking advantage of its neuroplasticity, or in layman’s terms, repeated positive exposure can help it behave in a certain way.” So, when considering why something as simple as a repeated morning walk, evening yoga session or gratitude journal entry provided such a break from the more negative thoughts during lockdown, Tang explains that: “through doing more of these activities, you stimulate ‘happy hormones’ or ‘happy neurotransmitters’ which results in more positive pathways being built and the negative ones being dampened. Savouring the little wins on a regular basis is one simple way to improve our mental health overall.” So, we’re sold on the benefits of celebrating, but how do we stick to it? Although journalling was my personal introduction to celebrating the small things, Tang suggests that while this is effective, it does involve some preparation and can therefore be harder to stick to. Here she recommended some more informal alternatives that can be easier to work into a daily routine.

Tang suggests “stretching each morning when you wake up and thinking about the people you’re grateful for, the things you’re grateful for and one thing you’re proud of yourself for.”

CELEBRATION STEPS

On a short walk, or it could even be when climbing the stairs, say a thank you after each step or as you get to each tree or marker of choice. It could be thanking your body for getting you there or anything you want to celebrate, but matching your positive thoughts with movement creates a childlike sense of fun, explains Tang.

PICK A WORD, ANY WORD

Choose a word at the start of your day such as kind, warm, helpful, self-disciplined, focused, flexible, balanced, pleasant, tolerant, open, honest, trusting etc. and focus on being it today! Tang suggests that it’s even better to go for one that’s a bit more unusual for you, as the sense of achievement and celebration is more rewarding.

So, if you are a more negative thinker, are there any top tips for making a change towards the positive a permanent fixture? Well, Tang explains that change has three zones. “The comfort zone, the stretch zone and the panic zone. Understandably, we don’t particularly want to be in the panic zone, but the stretch zone can actually feel pretty nice.” By doing something each day that places us in the stretch zone, be it walking a little further or taking the first steps to learning a new skill, we ultimately push our panic zone, and therefore our more negative feelings, further away. However we choose to celebrate the small positive aspects of our lives, it’s apparent that the benefits can be huge. And when I flick back to January in my notebook, a month where many of us felt there was very little to be joyous about, and see that I wrote: “blue skies, coffee in bed and starting a new book” in my gratitude list, I still get a little kick of positivity. And surely that in itself is something to celebrate. Start celebrating! Write down one small thing you’d like to toast to below:

ENJOY THE MOMENT It sounds like an obvious one, but Tang explains that if you find yourself enjoying a moment, take time to maximise that enjoyment. Take a few more deep breaths and savour it, even if you feel like you have a busy day ahead.

younger self A LETTER TO MY

If you could send younger you a postcard from your time in the future, what would it say? By Malak El-Gonemy


H

ave you ever reflected on a difficult time and wished that you could go back and tell yourself that you will get through it, no matter how impossible it might feel? Wish you could say to yourself that these periods of adversity, and surviving these times, can lead to a greater understanding of yourself, your strength and your resilience? It’s often only after we’ve been through something that we’re able to contextualise it and view it from a different perspective, one that has the benefit of hindsight; ‘Another year older, another year wiser’, as the proverb goes. Well, we’ve researched behaviours we can nurture every day to help change how we relate to and even celebrate our past, present and future. You can thank us later!

IT’S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY

If there’s one thing our younger selves would have benefitted from hearing, it’s that there will be periods where we feel low, and that’s okay. We spoke to Clinical Psychologist, Dr Powell-Jones, about the importance of accepting our emotions and the experiences that trigger them, and not just the ones that make us feel good. We need the full spectrum of emotions to survive, Powell-Jones explains, referring to the positive function of emotions like anger in eliciting vital social change, anxiety in keeping us safe, and grief and loss signalling our meaningful connection with those we love. A study conducted by researchers Jonathan M. Adler and Hal E. Hershfield demonstrated a strong correlation between mixed emotional experience and psychological welfare, with the participants who reported feeling both positive and negative emotions demonstrating an improvement in wellbeing over those who didn’t. It’s unrealistic to expect to be happy and content all the time – highs and lows help us to feel human, but it’s all about learning to ride them out.

THE ART OF LETTING GO (AND WHY IT’S NOT AS SIMPLE AS IT SOUNDS)

The message seems to be that we should try to allow ourselves to feel all the feels. But, with painful memories and emotions, this is easier said than done. Nobody likes feeling upset or stressed, and these memories and experiences can be anxiety-provoking. So, how can we practice this in a way that will promote better mental health? Powell-Jones explains that it’s all about accepting our emotions: “Emotions are like little signals generated by the body to let us know that we’re feeling a certain way. Socalled negative feelings are usually a signal of an unmet need.” For example, if you’re feeling sad, it might be that you’re craving connection or comfort. Frustration can be a signal that you seek validation or a need to be heard. “Notice an emotion and be curious about it. Ask yourself what the feeling is, what it’s telling you and how you can try and fulfil that need,” she says. If you’re struggling to identify how you’re feeling, she recommends checking out Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions. This notion of acceptance is the basis of mindfulness, which is very much at the core of acceptance and commitment therapy. “We talk about letting go, but what’s really important is letting go of the struggle to let go,” says Powell-Jones. This involves accepting the things that have happened to us and the emotions they have triggered. In time, we will come to regard them with a healthy curiosity and see them as an opportunity to grow and learn. But, in a culture where we’re often encouraged to ‘put on a brave face’, this can be really challenging. There is the temptation to turn our backs on any negative emotions and the experiences that trigger them in the hope that they’ll go away. This is actually counterproductive. “The more we try to avoid our emotions, the more they’ll manifest themselves,”

attests Powell-Jones. It’s a phenomenon known as Ironic Process Theory, or The White Bear Effect, first coined by Fyodor Dostoevsky, who said: “Try to pose for yourself this task: not to think of a polar bear, and you’ll see that the cursed thing will come to mind every minute.” (Yes, all we can think about is a big white polar bear now too!)

PUTTING PEN TO PAPER

Much of Sarah’s practice in nurturing acceptance over avoidance involves the use of compassion-focused therapy. An exercise she finds incredibly fruitful is letter-writing, where she encourages her clients to write a letter to themselves. “We have lots of different selves,” she explains. “There’s a younger self, a vulnerable self, a professional self, a not-goodenough self…the list goes on.” The way we speak to our younger self is especially important and it’s crucial that this is done with kindness and compassion. Writing a letter to our past self can promote healing and help us gain clarity, and, in turn, have an impact on how we face present-day hardships. Here, Dr Powell-Jones shares her top tips on writing to your younger self: Be compassionate: This is no place for criticism. Be empathic: Validate your experiences and the emotions they trigger. Be courageous: You have more strength and wisdom than you did back then. You have survived a lot and you can stand up for your younger self now. So, grab your pen and paper, and get started on one of the most important letters you’ll ever write. We’ll be with you every step of the way!

SKINCARE

orking as a beauty editor for well over a decade, it’s been my job to test products, review treatments and interview beauty experts from around the globe – and unsurprisingly, I’ve loved every minute. The maintenance of my skin took a village, but with the UK’s top facialists and aesthetic doctors on speed dial, I was in good hands. But when the pandemic hit, life changed and lockdown meant a rethink of my beauty routine, and it did for all of us, it also meant uncertainty, fear and stress. The first few weeks felt like a blur. I lived in my dressing gown and there were days when I didn’t even wash my face – yes, I comitted this cardinal skincare sin repeatedly!

after my skin, and essentially show myself some love and attention, had far-reaching effects. Aromatherapist Simone Stevens believes what’s inside our skincare has a part to playa part to play in that department too. “Essential oils and extracts, when inhaled, can have a positive impact on our emotions, when the scent of your favourite skincare is inhaled,

HORMONE THERAPY

So, just by giving your skincare a sniff you can boost your feel-good hormones, and you can activate them even more by spending a little extra time on your application method. I discovered this when I started practising the many massage techniques I’ve written about in countless articles, but never felt the need to try myself – since I spent so much time in the hands of experts. When we repeat an action we enjoy, our brains are flooded with dopamine. “The more we repeat said action – a facial massage, for example – the more we want to repeat the action, and the better we feel,” explains psychologist, therapist and author of wellbeing guide, A Manual for Being Human, Dr Sophie Mort. And that’s not the only hormone that’s released when we use our skincare. “When we’re touched by others or even when we touch ourselves, our brains release oxytocin. Known as the ‘bonding hormone’, oxytocin stimulates the release of other feel-good hormones and reduces the stress hormone cortisol, leaving you feeling cared for and connected, which automatically lifts the mood,” adds Dr Mort.

STRESS LESS

My beauty regime of old had relied heavily on others, and had never really been focused on self-care, so when I decided to take back control of my days and my skin, what I didn’t expect was how much joy and balance my new self-sufficient skincare regime would provide. BACP-accredited counsellor and psychotherapist Katerina Georgiou, however, is unsurprised as she shares that “our minds and bodies are inextricably linked. How we treat our bodies impacts our emotional health and vice versa. This means self-care in the right doses grounds us, makes us aware of ourselves and our bodies, encourages self-love and gives us a purpose. Whatever else is going on in the world,this remains a constant and can encourage feelings of calm.” The calm I can attest to. I double cleansed, masked, toned, serumed, massaged and moisturised each morning and night, I started to notice how I felt far less anxious. For around 30 minutes, twice a day, I got some respite from the butterflies that had camped out in my stomach during those early weeks of the pandemic, and I was hooked.

SMELLS GOOD

What I realised pretty quickly was how skincare regimes are truly a celebration of our skin and ourselves. I felt more positive as a person, as the sheer act of taking time out to look

The likes of eucalyptus and rosemary, found in Smoothing Cleanser, will help you feel focused and mentally relaxed, while the scent of creamy shea butter in Eye Dream Age-defying Overnight Butterbalm will have a comforting effect. And you’ll find the citrusy scents in Face Smooth Brightening Polish have mood-boosting abilities too.

BIG BENEFITS the molecules travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the limbic system – the part of our brains involved in our behavioural and emotional responses. There, they can trigger the release of endorphins and serotonin, better known as feel-good hormones,” she adds.

So, from stress reduction to improved self-esteem, our skincare routines have far-reaching benefits that go way beyond ‘good’ skin. By taking care of your skin, you take care of yourself both mentally and physically, and I for one won’t let my few moments of skincare bliss drop off my daily self-care schedule ever again.

OUR

perfect planet (and the lush landscapes living on our doorstep) By Florence Reeves-White

Snowdonia National Park

P

ut your hand up if you’ve pulled your walking shoes on and pottered around in the countryside over the past 18 months more than you ever had before... *raises arm* In fact, an NFU survey has found that 45% of people now feel as though they have a greater appreciation for the great outdoors, after exploring it more during life in lockdown. But how does that translate to the way we’re treating this perfectly formed planet? Will the time we took to stop and listen – to seasons changing the shape, feel and fragrances of our local spaces, or to the never-noticed nuances of different birdsong – change the trajectory of our climate crisis? In our ‘Celebration Issue’ we want to stop for a second and throw some positivity into the melting pot of conversation about the conservation of our planet – to reflect on the awe-inspiring landscapes and abundance of life all around us. If we cultivate a closer relationship with the natural world, surely our empathy and persistence in protecting this harmonious home of ours will follow suit. Let’s celebrate some of the most stunning sights that our luscious locale has to offer and consider how we can truly take care of them. We owe it to the generations to come to keep the little party that we call life going for as long as possible, and that all begins with protecting our planet.

Isle Of Skye


SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK, WALES Home to Wales’ highest mountain, Snowdonia National Park is one of Britain’s best breathing spaces. Biodiversity in abundance blesses both the grassy greens and the jagged cliffs of the fourteen conservation areas within the park. A fifth of the site is protected because of its wildlife and geological interest, in order to sustain the rich and unique life that’s able to flourish there (snowdonia.gov.wales). Due to its location on the western edge of Europe, Snowdonia is swept by warm, wet weather, making it an ideal home for thousands of species and their habitats. Breaking up its harsh cliffs and sky-blue lakes, 23 miles of coastline and sandy beaches play a part in enriching the biodiversity of the area, which houses many native species that are seen nowhere else in the UK.

“One way we can help to care for the rich life structures living in areas such as these when we visit is to travel during low season.”

ISLE OF SKYE, SCOTLAND The Island of the Mist, or ‘Eilean a’ Cheó’, is famous for its dramatic rockscapes and visionary vistas, with ethereal tales twinkling in ‘fairy pools’ and majestic memories reigning over mountainous, crown-like cliffs. The turquoise pools in question sit at the foot of the formidable Black Cuillin mountains, and legend has it that ‘selkies’ – seals by day and humans by night – would come here to bathe by the light of the moon (scotsman.com). Mythology aside, the Isle of Skye sustains an astonishing array of wildlife, and with that knowledge comes concerns about the large scale of local tourism and treatment of the landscape. One way we can help to care for the rich life structures living in areas such as these when we visit, is to travel during low season (October-March), so less pressure is put on local resources and habitats by hordes of tourists all flocking to the region at once (lonelyplanet.com).

THE GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, NORTHERN IRELAND The Giant’s Causeway is one of the UK’s most magnificent geological trophies, with the 40,000 black basalt columns protruding from the sea being a globally-renowned phenomenon. Some 50-60 million years ago, when volcanic activity meant molten lava was occupying this very spot, hexagonal columns were formed as the lava began cooling at irregular rates (bbc.co.uk). Today, the rocks – and the pools they cuddle inside them – are home to a vast array of marine life. However, at Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you may feel as though you’re following in the footsteps of giants, a poignant message hits home – if we continue to fill the big boots of those who’ve caused destruction in their wake before us, intricate and fascinatingly-formed sites like this one will be washed away under the sea for none to see. According to UNESCO “changes in sea level or an increased frequency of storm events may, in the future, affect the degree to which the causeway is accessible or visible.” Mitigating the damage of global warming might just be the only way to keep these monumental structures from becoming a drowning, distant memory.

WE’RE PLANTING A FOREST!

Rydal and Grasmere

RYDAL AND GRASMERE, ENGLAND As Wordsworth’s former watering hole and home to hundreds of orange-hued tree species, it’s no wonder that people have been noticing the natural beauty rife in Rydal and Grasmere for centuries. More than most other valleys, Grasmere, Rydal and neighbouring Ambleside show off a diversity of landscape, offering an undiluted and exquisite example of everything the Lake District has to offer. The National Trust tells us that “the conservation link is strong in the valley, too. Wordsworth had protested against the extension of the railway from Windermere, and since then this legacy of looking after this locale has lived on.”

“If we continue to fill the big boots of those who’ve caused destruction in their wake before us, intricate and fascinatingly-formed sites like this one will be washed away.”

The unparalleled greenery, grassland and gorgeous rock and coastal formations found in the far reaches of the UK are a fundamental reminder of the rich and robust ecosystems that exist on our doorstep. While we (responsibly, please) rest our worn-out minds, retreat to the countryside to celebrate these awe-inspiring spaces and soak in the best that Mother Nature has to offer, it’s important that we take stock of the magic of these naturally flourishing spots. Along with the everyday reminders that we encounter – changing seasons turning the colours of the leaves in local parks, the billowing of a gentle breeze caressing our skin, birdsong poking through the cracks of urban cityscapes – untouched natural landscapes remind us that this beautiful planet operates so perfectly. Each and every organism is reliant on another for survival in some capacity, but with that interlocking dependency comes such fragility. The best thing we can do for those that come after us, and for the Earth, is to cultivate our bonds with nature and look after our home, together. AW 2021 | ISSUE 3 | GLOW | 107


BETTER

A

s I introduced myself to a new colleague on a team call – characteristically talking far too fast for her to actually take anything in – I noticed another new face in my line of vision. “Is that a fox in my neighbour’s window?!” my now distracted brain screamed at me. Once the meeting finished, my curiosity drove me downstairs and out the door for a closer look at number four’s newest resident. Neighbours gathered and baffled passers-by slowed to a halt, as an eclectic congregation stared in disbelief at the incongruous creature in the window, all feeling a real sense of belonging, a shared purpose – to free this fox from that first floor flat. Eleven hours of sharing knowledge, sourcing materials (it turns out that ladders can only get you so far before trespassing laws rear their heads) and feeling sorry for the kindly neighbours whose curtains had been torn to shreds by our furry ginger friend, and the police eventually broke in to let the poor fella out. As we watched it scurry down the street, the dog-like detainee finally free from its unconventional domestic prison, why did disappointment – much like the fox and that curtain fabric – thrash around destructively, tearing holes through the threads of my elation? Well, it’s pretty straightforward. When groups of people with similar interests, ambitions and passions rally together on a joint mission, their force is not only naturally so much stronger than that of the individual, but being part of something simply feels good. I mean, have you ever sang until your voice cracks at a concert, a shared thirst for fun and the music pumping through your bodies drawing you – like ends of a magnet – closer to these hundreds, or even thousands, of other humans? There’s something about a crowd moving and singing and dancing in unison that feels electric – community gives us energy and makes us feel charged, alive and present. If it weren’t for our ability, as a human race, to forge connections and establish communities with common hopes and wants and loves, where would we be? Being part of a community is said to help us avoid stress, and it’s even been suggested that having a strong social network is a crucial key to living a longer life. In his book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari claims that the actual survival of the human race (and its prevalence over other species) can be accredited largely to our unparalleled capacity for communication and community building. About 70,000 years ago, an evolutionary mutation meant that we were able, for the first time, to cooperate efficiently in large groups using a unique and complex language. “Ants and bees can also work together in huge numbers,

CELEBRATING OUR COMMUNITIES


As we begin to unfurl our sofabound bodies and flex our social muscles once more, let’s think about how our communities have never felt more important, why we find it so reassuring for people to rally round us and the potential power we can unlock should we use our communities as a force for good. By Florence Reeves-White

but they do so in a very rigid manner and only with close relatives,” explains Harari. “Wolves and chimpanzees cooperate far more flexibly than ants, but they can do so only with small numbers of other individuals that they know intimately. Sapiens can cooperate in extremely flexible ways with countless numbers of strangers.” He suggests that our capacity for language, gossip and storytelling has fostered an ability to bond not just as small groups living in geographically close quarters, but as monumental swaths of people sharing a collective purpose. Whether it be religion or competition or adoration – think Helen of Troy’s face launching a thousand ships – we all have a longing for belonging to something bigger, to have something magnetising in common drawing us closer, forging connections for us. But the power of community isn’t always used in a way that should be celebrated. It originated as a sport which unified the working classes, and (whether you’re a fan or a cynic) it’s undeniable that the energy bounding through the streets after a momentous football match is true testament to togetherness, but the occasional fury of its fans provides evidence of forces of community that shouldn’t be celebrated. The reaction in the UK to the Euros 2020 final result showed us that two hugely powerful communities – football fandom and the internet – could band together and create barbaric results. Vogue columnist and Instagram inspiration, Raven Smith noted that “football is a bit like religion, both are based on goodness (offering community and camaraderie), yet atrocities are performed in their name.” So, how can we ensure that we’re channeling feelings of togetherness to create a force for good? As much as one single person can and has instigated real, effective change even in our lifetimes – eighteen-year-old Greta Thunberg isn’t shy of saying it louder for the people in the back – if we come together with our communities, whether they be virtual, familial or seemingly dysfunctional, we can achieve so much more. They say ‘it takes a village’, but a village of people itself doesn’t warrant much remark, were it not for the way they unite for a shared purpose, join forces and dish out their love, care and attention to whoever needs it most at any time. Our willingness to put others before ourselves is what sets us apart from other species. We’re stronger together, that much is clear, but imagine if we only channeled that communal energy into repositories of positive change. Ryan Holiday in The Daily Stoic states that “civilisation and country are great projects we build together and have been building together for millennia. We are made for cooperation (synergia) with each other.” Community is our purpose, so rather than tear people down, let’s use it to build a better home.

SHOPPING WITH A

personal touch

We now have more than 20,000 Tropic Ambassadors who help share our products with a personal touch, but our family started off a little smaller...

S

usie started our social selling business model primarily to continue to sell our products while maintaining a real connection with our customers, just like she experienced on London’s market stalls as a teenager. Alongside this, it enables us to keep our products as fresh as possible because they’re not sitting on shelves in retail outlets, and we also get to give people across the UK the opportunity to grow a business, in whatever way works for them. That’s why our products can only be purchased directly from our website or from a member of our Ambassador family. The majority of our Ambassadors join Tropic because they love using our products (93%*), it’s as simple as that.

They find themselves recommending products to their friends and family, and then it naturally grows into a business from there. We’re very proud of our business model and how we’re able to connect with our customers on a personal level every day, thanks to our Ambassadors. Just like our products and ethics strive to lead the way in the beauty industry, we want the way our business is run to do exactly the same. That’s why when you shop with one of our Ambassadors, you know that you’re supporting an individual's business. You’re also receiving a personal shopping service tailored to you. Your Ambassador isn’t allowed to hold stock, so they’re helping you to choose products that are truly right for

your skin. And, like all of our orders, it’s double carbon-offset and helping to fund education for children living in some of the poorest, most remote communities in the world. So in a nutshell, it’s not just social selling, it’s social shopping. In fact, it’s even better than that, it’s sustainable shopping, and when we’re working towards creating a healthier, greener, more empowered world, we’re pretty sure that’s the best way to keep your beauty bank topped up!

*External survey independently conducted in November 2020 with 4,551 Ambassador joiners’ responses.
