Love your skin
You know that feeling when you feel fresh and rejuvenated on holiday? When you have some time from life and obligations, and you feel rested and at ease? Ever noticed how your skin looks a little calmer, clearer and more invigorated? This is the mind + skin connection in action.
Psychodermatology is the rapidly evolving discipline in skincare science which shows that our mind and skin are inextricably linked. Beautiful, healthy, and radiant skin is a question of balance, and this kind of balance can only be achieved by giving both your mind and skin a little extra love, restoring harmony to both.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’re sharing our five top tips to elevate your skincare routine and give your skin the extra love and glow it deserves.
1. TAKE YOUR TIME
Rather than rushing through your skincare routine, use the time as a self-care ritual by applying your products more mindfully. Enjoy the textures, scents, and sensation of the products on your skin. If your mind wanders, gently refocus on the process.
2. MULTITASKING WITH FACEMASKS
Make the most of your facemask time by multitasking with activities that contribute to your overall wellbeing. Listing to a calming guided meditation, reading a chapter of your favourite book, or practicing gratitude while your mask is working its magic not only enhances your mental wellbeing, but also turns your skincare routine into a moment of self-love and self-care.
3. EXFOLIATE TO REVEAL A BRIGHTER COMPLEXION
Use a physical or chemical exfoliator to gently buff away dead skin cells and reveal smoother, glowing skin. Aromatherapy Associates’ Resurfacing Exfoliator combines the best of both, with upcycled Blueberry and Raspberry Seeds as well as AHA Fruit Enzymes. With the addition of a calming hand-crafted essential oil blend, skin is left smooth and nourished and the mind is calm and de-stressed.
4. BOOK A FACIAL
