With Valentine's on the way love is all around, channel some of that love to yourself and your skin!
Here are some ways to show your skin some tender loving care. ❤️
Give Yourself a Soothing Facial Massage
Massaging your face improves circulation and lymphatic drainage and the result is a smoother, firmer complexion. Before you start a facial massage make sure to wash your face and apply a moisturizer or facial serum such as our Rosey Cheeks Facial Oil Serum.
You can massage with either your hands or a tool for similar results. When massaging your face with your fingers be sure to start at the neck and and use firm strokes upwards or wide circular strokes always pushing skin up and out. Move towards the jawline, centre of face moving up and out and then in between the brows to the forehead.
Another option for facial massage is a Jade Roller
. The Jade Roller
reduces puffiness, increases blood circulation to boost collagen formation. It also enhances the penetration of products. Jade stone provides a smooth cold surface to glide roller back and forth over every area of the face and neck. While massaging with the Jade Roller
be sure to start at the neck, roll onto skin for at least 10 seconds in each area moving upward.
Don't Forget Your Eye Area
Massage an eye cream or serum around your eyes super gently as this area is thinner and more fragile than the rest of your facial skin. Show love to your eyes by investing in a soothing and protective eye cream such as our Eyewaken Eye Cream
Use the smaller end of the Jade Roller
under your eyes to reduce puffiness by helping to remove excess liquid and constricting blood vessels.
Give Yourself an At Home Mask Treatment
Masks have so many benefits - detoxifying the skin, hydrating and rejuvenating. It's also a great time to unwind and take care of yourself. Apart from the luxurious feel they create, masks revive your skin.
Love Yourself All Over
Soaking in a bath is a sure way to ease stress and improve the appearance of your skin. Bath salts hydrate and soften the skin and soothe inflammation such as eczema. Our Patchouli Vibes Bath Salts
are helpful in a self-love beauty regimen because they reduce aches and soothe muscles as well as ease feelings of stress.
Applying lotion is a great way to nourish, hydrate and appreciate your body - our Touchy Feely Body Lotion
is fast-absorbing with the lovely scents of lavender and rosemary.
As with every other gift in life, you should show love to your skin by appreciating it. After all, it is the only one skin you have. Learn to speak words of affirmation and positivity to your skin daily. You'll be amazed at how your beauty radiates.
Do you overlook the importance of self-care in your daily life? It is necessary to pause and take some time off to recharge and rejuvenate. What better time to start, if not now?
