Skincare Routine & Calming Ritual
Daily skincare routines such as cleansing and moisturizing your face every day is a great way to care for your mind and body. And while routines are more a matter of repetition and organization, turning it into a calming ritual requires conscious effort, commitment, and an intention to uplift an otherwise ordinary act. Here are some easy ways you can turn your daily skincare routine into an uplifting, calming ritual. (1) Set the scene. Light some candles, listen to music or tidy up your environment to help you unwind and relax. (2) Apply your skincare products with intention, which can help you identify your goals, wants, and needs. (3) Listen to your skin. Don't ignore the signs your skin is trying to tell you. For example, if your skin feels dehydrated, amp up the moisture. If it's looking congested, try an exfoliating product. (4) Shift your perspective. Think of skincare as a time to self-care and enjoy a sensory experience.
