3 Daily Wellness Rituals For Self-Care
Nowadays, daily wellness rituals are a necessity more than a luxury. It is so essential to take time for balancing your energy and caring for your well being. You can add wellness rituals to even the most hectic schedule. Here are three simple routines to prioritize self-care every day.
Dry Body Brushing
What’s great about dry body brushing is that it takes very little time. You can do it before showering, while the water warms up. It is so simple, yet has a ton of benefits. The skincare benefits include exfoliating dead skin cells, stimulating lymphatic drainage, increasing circulation, unblocking clogged pores, and even breaking up cellulite.
As if that wasn’t enough, the process of body brushing is very relaxing and soothing. You can slow down and get into a calm state of mind to start or end your day. Do you know the rejuvenating feeling of walking out of a spa? You can have that right from the comfort of your own home. You can read more about the tremendous benefits of dry brushing here!
All you need is the right brush, and we have the perfect one right in our shop.
A Simplified Skincare Routine
Skincare is self-care. A skincare routine is something to do every morning and night that you can use as your “me time.” Sure you can simply wash your face and go, but why not take one extra minute to really nourish your skin? You may notice your self-confidence increase as your skin becomes healed and glowing, which is the ultimate reason to add this ritual every day.
The basic skincare routine that works for every skin type is a cleanser, then a treatment product like a serum, then a moisturizer (yes, even oily skin needs moisturizer). We love to use facial oil rather than a traditional moisturizer, and you can ready about why in this blog post!
Here's an example of our simple four-step routine: Dampen your skin and apply our Sugar Maple and Aloe Leaf Gentle Cleansing Milk to your face and neck. Pat dry and apply our Rosehip and Willow Bark Vitamin C Serum. (Serum is important to treat your skin with concentrated ingredients).
Allow it to absorb, then apply a facial oil to protect and balance your skin. You can choose between our Rosehip + Calendula Facial Glow Oil if your skin is combination or normal to oily, or COQ10 + Jasmine Intense Hydration Facial Oil if your skin tends to be drier.
And that’s it! Three steps for an easy daily ritual.
If you have even ten minutes to spare each day, you should use it for meditation to clear your mind, step away from stress, and refocus on wellness.
The best way to meditate is to set an intention. Maybe you want to release a negative emotion that’s been weighing on you. Maybe there’s something you hope to manifest in your life. Our New Moon Manifesting Mist can assist with creating the blessings you desire, while our Full Moon Surrender Spray is wonderful for letting go of negativity. Spray it on or around yourself and allow the scent to heighten your meditation.
Crystals are another wonderful addition to your meditation practice. Choose one that’s energy resonates with you, and hold it in your hands while thinking of your intention.
You will feel refreshed and in a much better headspace with these wellness practices. What are your daily rituals?
