Give your skin, the love and time it deserves
Taking care of your skin is a perfect opportunity to build the habit of mindfulness in your daily life. Being mindful means being self-aware, being present, and aware of your thoughts, sensations, and the world around you. Being mindful is to activate your senses and observe your thoughts.
Mindfulness is a powerful way to cope with everyday life that benefits your mental and physical wellbeing. Small periods of being truly present and making conscious decisions are incredibly beneficial. The good news is that you don’t have to be a yogi and meditate for hours on end, to incorporate the benefits.
Let’s take a look, how you can be more mindful in your everyday life, by incorporating this into your skincare routine.
Transform your skincare into a beautiful energizing ritual by breathing deeply and quietly. Deep breathing will calm you down and get you ready for the day or help you retire and sleep better at night.
Take a few drops of your favorite oil on your palms and inhale the relaxing aroma before applying the synergetic blends to your face. Transform your skincare into an experience and an energizing ritual.
Slow down the application of your skincare. Take some time to go through the same activity with greater attention to detail, pay attention to the aroma of the oil, the sensation it creates when the oil touches your skin, and how that makes you feel. Be fully aware and present in the moment.
Instead of rushing through applying your products, slow down and make your skincare routine an act of self-love you look forward to at the beginning and end of the day. As you apply the products, pay attention to the texture, aroma, and the way it feels on your skin. Take some time to massage products properly into your skin. A good lymphatic massage can help your body in many ways. More coming on this in the next blog post.
Now that we have slowed down the application, take time to look at your skin. Observing changes in your skin before your routine and after you have finished, will help you understand your skin and what it needs.
When you are in a rush, it is easy to miss the subtle changes and understand what your skin is trying to tell you. Being mindful in your skincare, will lower your stress levels and improve the health of your skin.
Embracing a mindful approach also includes giving more thought to the products we use. So, make sure you look at the ingredients of the products that you use, today.
