a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.
I take much pride in formulating perfect blends to fit each and every lifestyle and skins needs, being mindful of every ingredient that will be helpful to YOU!
It is with this care that I hope you take the time for yourself to not only reap the benefits of all the fresh ingredients, but also creating a ritual that will deepen your connection with each floral scent and take you on a mini mediation of self care and love.
Below is a morning Cleanse Ritual that I hope will find you well and at peace to start your day with good intentions!
Before you get started:
* Take the Time to Breathe deeply with every step, allowing yourself to be present and awake.
* Each Personalized MALA formulation is mindfully hand crafted with your desired scent profile to give you an extra aromatherapeutic experience.
* Use warm comfortable water and/or a soft washcloth for rinsing ritual
* To give you an added home-facial experience, fill your basin or a bowl with warm water and add 4-5 sprays of your Hydrosol Mist or 1-2 drops of (organic) essential oil- use this water for your rinsing.
* It is also very important while you are reflecting in the mirror, you are affirming good thoughts and lots of self love
Step One: Cleansing- Add a dime size of Facial Cleanse into palm with a bit of warm water or Hydrosol and rub your hands together to mix, cup hands over nose,
Breathe in 3 deep breaths, massage products into face, neck and décolletage, using upward circular motions for one minute.
Step Two: Rinsing- If you have filled your basin or a bowl with warm water, use washcloth or hands to wash off Facial Cleanse.
Step Three: (De) Compress- using your washcloth, rinse off excess cleanser and ring out water. Place warm washcloth over your face and breathe in 2-3 deep breaths.
The warm water helps with opening pores and assists with deeper cleansing. Dip washcloth into water, ring and repeat breathing steps 2 more times.
Exfoliation- (1-2 times a week) Sloughing off dead skin, deep dirt and oil can only be done through exfoliation. But that doesn’t mean with harsh scrubs, chemicals and brushes that can scratch delicate skin and harm skins natural protective acid mantle. Abrasive techniques over time cause skin irritation, sensitivity, inflammation, and even rosacea.
Our Gentle jojoba beads Exfoliating Scrub is gentle enough to keep everything intact while being a very effective, which also encourages cell regeneration- an anti-aging must!
Step Four: Apply a dime size of exfoliant to palm and massage into face and neck, using gentle, circular motions, keeping away from the eye area. 1 minute.
Repeat Step Two, rinsing well to make sure all product is removed, making your final rinse with fresh warm water.
Moisturize! Now that your skin is well exfoliated, it is more receptive to absorb all beneficial and active ingredients from your serums plus added hydration from your moisture cream. If you have an array of my Treatment Serums, you can customize what your skin is in need of for that day. For specific areas to be treated, it is best to apply serums to those areas first. i.e. hyper pigmentation, spot acne treatment, then moisturize on top.
Step Five: Apply a pea size of Moisture Boost Créme to palm and add 1-3 drops of Treatment Serum. Mix well with finger and rub hands together for another inhalation, slowly massage into face, neck and décolletage, using upward gentle strokes.
Final Step: Mist face with your favorite Hydrosol Mist while getting in one last positive affirming breath.
Now your skin is fresh and awake as well as your brain receptors and calmed nervous system.
You are ready to start your fabulous day with good intentions, bliss and beauty!
