The Practice of Intuitive Skincare
When we think of nourishing our bodies, we may think of the food we eat, the amount of water we drink, or even what kind of thoughts we are filling our minds with. The skin being the largest organ of the body, everything we do on a daily basis directly affects optimal skin health. Our skin can speak to us in many ways and it usually takes self-recognition and a lot of courage to listen.
Intuitive skincare is about harnessing the inner voice that resides within all of us. It can take some time to unlearn any habitual opinion we may have of our physical appearance. Trusting your instincts when it comes to inner and outer beauty can help embrace the transitions you experience throughout your skincare journey. When a skincare concern arises, you can easily tune into what the root cause may be. A great way to begin this journey is to focus inward on your emotions, stress level, exercise, and diet. Am I consuming the right amount of nutrients? How is my breathing? If there is a lot of stress present, are you breathing shallow? Has a recent life event changed your normal routine? Take a look at the overall picture of your life and how you are treating yourself. Like nature, we cannot control everything around us. We can only peacefully transform into the next stage of our being. Offering compliments to yourself can sometimes be the positive affirmation you need. When dealing with blemishes, understand that this is a way for your body to heal. The more negative you speak to yourself, the longer the skin issue will persist. Speaking kindly and patiently to yourself can accelerate the healing process of your skin.
After reflecting within, it is only then you can consider certain products and facial massage tools. With so much available in the beauty industry, it is quite easy to become overwhelmed with ingredients. A lot of products contain endocrine disrupters, parabens, unnecessary dyes, and harsh chemicals. There are many non-toxic options that have emerged in the industry. It is always best to consult with a licensed skincare professional about which products can offer the most effective results while not compromising your health. Essentially taking it step by step will be the most beneficial. You do not want to overwhelm yourself in the process of choosing the best topical skincare products.
Luminous skin is the result of a balanced mind, spirit, and body. Listening to your intuition and learning to trust yourself will always produce your greatest results. Through these mindful practices, may your skincare routine turn into a beautiful ritual honoring your highest self.
