Just like any relationship the one we have with our own skin isn’t always rosy. It’s something that needs work, commitment and upkeep before you can reap the benefits. But what is so important is to love the skin you’re in and look after it from the inside and out.
Do all things with love:
We all have things we would like to improve about our skin whether it’s lack of firmness, uneven tone, or stubborn blemishes. The first thing to remember is that you are not alone and that everyone (and we mean everyone) has their hang-ups. Whilst you may not be happy with your skin’s current condition it’s important to face up to your issues with love and care and not let yourself continually focus on the things you are unhappy with.
SELF LOVE TIP:
A good daily practice to show yourself a little more love is when looking in the mirror work on accepting where you and your skin are right now. Mentally note a few things you like and appreciate what you see rather than jumping straight to the issues you’d rather weren’t there.
Take the time to note progress and treat your skin with love not only with the products you use but by how you apply them. Use gentle motions on application and always aim to sweep up to improve circulation. When applying serums be sure to press them in gently rather than rubbing then across the skin not only is this a more therapeutic experience but your skin will absorb the ingredients better and you will see the benefits quicker.
Consistency & Patience:
No two skincare regimes are the same. What works for someone else may not work for you and it may take longer than expected but consistency is key. Now perhaps we don’t all have time to indulge in a full pampering regime every day but it’s important to engage in self-care daily to feel radiant inside and out.(one of the reasons behind our ice therapy).
There are no overnight fixes when it comes to skin so it’s important to exercise patience and give yourself the time and love you need to feel your best self. It may be easier said than done but don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others; everyone’s journey is different.
Treat yourself often:
This is a step we’re sure you can all enjoy: Treat yourself! It’s important to take time out whenever you can and treat yourself to some pampering.
Indulge in a Sunday (or any other day for that matter) radiance ritual and give yourself some time to relax and rejuvenate. We suggest enjoying a long shower or bath with some aromatic bath and body products.Then nourish your body with indulgent body oils or creams using long upward strokes to massage the product in.
Then choose your favorite mask and take a moment to read a book or catch up on Netflix (we love The Crown). You can also refresh using our ice therapy as an added boost.
