Self-care is today’s buzzword. It’s a broad definition, as it involves caring for your entire being; from your mind, to your heart, to your soul, to your skin. Self-care involves meditation, exercise, therapy, relaxation, reading, writing, and unwinding. What about moisturizing? Exfoliating, cleansing, and taking care of your body’s largest organ: skin. Most of us have morning rituals, which may or may not involve proper skin care practices, which is a shame, because if our skin feels good, we feel good. Our diet contributes to the way our skin feels and looks. A healthy balanced diet will make your skin glow, while a deep-fried diet will give your skin a greasy shine, no matter how many creams you apply. Self-care, and skin-care are difficult to do well, luckily companies like Plushura exist to help you navigate through healthy skin care practices.
What Does Plushura value?

All their skin-care products are natural, paraben-free, and vegan, with no animal testing. Their ingredients include plantain extract, burdock, apple cider vinegar, green tea extract, apricot oil, and aloe vera.
“They are judging me.”
“I’m not beautiful.”
“My skin hates me.”
“I’m not good enough.”
If these self-talk statements sound familiar, you are not alone. Plushura founder, Triana Shaw shared the same insecurities before starting her company. She struggled with acne throughout her teens which led to negative self-talk and a lack of confidence. Her largest organ was her most complicated problem. She ate an all natural plant-based diet, exercised, de-stressed, and managed essential self-care practices, but her acne did not disappear. She turned to traditional Chinese medicine & herbs, but they were ineffective. Dermatologists prescribed medications and topical ointments, which helped at first, but lead to further complications such as sun sensitivity, chapped lips and dryness.
Change your mind, change your skin
Triana turned to one place no dermatologist would venture: her mind. She changed her self-talk. Focused on staying positive, building her self-confidence, fixing her need for perfectionism, and managing her stresses at work and at home, which were factors contributing to her acne. Triana prioritized mindfulness to create a beautiful complexion from the inside out, and that is Plushura’s mission.
