How to Transform Skincare into a Self-Care Ritual
Skincare is not only beneficial for your skin but also beneficial to your mood. Skincare is about more than just your face. It's not just what you put on it, but also what you do to take care of it. Your skincare routine should always be beneficial for your skin.
The importance of skincare is often overlooked. We tend to focus on how our hair looks or what clothes we are wearing, but neglect the health and beauty of our skin. Skincare should be a self-care ritual that you do for yourself every day, not just when you have an event coming up or if your skin feels dry or tight.
A facial massage will kick start your skincare routine. Use gentle strokes on the face with both hands (one hand will be on top of the other). The bottom hand should start by cupping the chin then moving up towards the forehead while using circular motions. The top hand should start by cupping either side of your nose then move down towards your neck using circular motions. Repeat this process for each section of your face until you've reached all areas.
Facial massage improves circulation in your skin which leads to a more even complexion. It also helps with muscle tension that can cause headaches or migraines. It's great for people who experience stress because it releases endorphins in the brain, which are responsible for reducing pain and boosting moods. Massaging your face stimulates natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid; all three substances contribute to youthful looking skin.
A mask can do wonders for your skin. It will help you feel refreshed and relaxed. One should be sure to choose a facial mask that suits their skin type and individual needs. While the mask is doing its own job, you can practice some deep breathing. You could even try a quiet meditation or put on your earphones and listen to some relaxing music.
Under Eye Masks
Eye masks are used to help with dark circles and tired eyes, as well as wrinkles around the eyes. Selfcare Social’s under eye masks are great for those who work long hours on their computer or generally tired and puffy eyes which results in dark circles. They are formulated with high-quality, all-natural ingredients that deliver effective results. Packed with avocado seed oil to soothe the skin around the eye area, which can help reduce dark circles and puffiness. The hyaluronic acid offers deep hydration and intense moisture while the hydrolysed collagen increases new cell growth leaving you with a smooth and radiant under eye area. And let's not forget vitamin C to brighten and wake up tired, dull and dry looking skin leaving you looking refreshed and ready for the day! (or night)
It's a good idea to have music playing as you do your skincare routine. It can help you relax and enjoy the process. Listening to music while doing your skincare routine is important. It's proven that music can help with many things – from lowering stress levels and blood pressure, to improving moods and cognitive performance.
In order to keep up with the demands of work and family life, we often neglect ourselves and our needs. It can be tough to take care of your skin when you're constantly on the go or dealing with stressors in your personal life.
