Skincare is not just for the betterment of your skin but also for your soul. Mornings can be spiritual if done the right way. This is why mornings and skincare are the perfect nexus for feeling more zen and relaxed.
Soothing your soul is not as easy as applying a moisturizer to your face. However, focusing all your attention on self-care can make it that easy. As long as you are mindful of your routine and concentrate step-by-step, it will begin to feel like a meditative experience.
There are also some relaxation techniques that are part of this morning routine that may help to soothe your skin and soul.
Relaxation Techniques for Morning Skincare
1) Face Wash and ASMR
ASMR is an incredibly popular technique that can increase relaxation tenfold. The philosophy behind ASMR is to concentrate on quiet sounds. These sounds can produce a variety of sensations, such as tingling.
Incorporating this technique into the first step of your routine could set the perfect tone for your morning. Pour Majestic Pure Acnea3 Scar Wash Foaming Cleanser into your palm. Hear the bottle make a clicking sound as you open it, then close it shut. Listen closely to the sound the cleanser makes in your palm. Then, rub it onto your face slowly, paying attention to the sounds this motion produces.
2) Serum and Breath
Breathing is an essential part of relaxing the body. Sometimes, we are not mindful of our breathing and forget to do it deeply. In this relaxation technique, you will be required to be mindful of the length and depth of your breath.
While you are applying Majestic Pure Vitamin C Serum, inhale and lift the belly up. Hold the breath in your chest, and then exhale slowly. Repeat this cycle about 7 times as you apply the serum to your face. Feel free to close your eyes and inhale the citrusy scent of the serum to increase relaxation.
3) Cream and Facial Massage
A facial massage should be done with the utmost care. This is because the skin on the face is extra sensitive. Due to its gentility, the facial massage is the most soothing massage, and it is the epitome of self-care.
For a facial massage, a cream is necessary. Apply Majestic Pure Retinol Cream to your fingertips and gently dab them onto your face. Start with the forehead, then the temples, working your way to the cheekbones and the T-area (nose and chin). In gentle, circular motions, massage your face. This helps to cool the face as well, providing a soothing sensation.
4) Gua Sha
This is an excellent way to distribute the products evenly over your skin. The gua sha stone is typically made of jade which has profound benefits for the skin. It reduces the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, giving you a youthful and well-rested look. The gua sha stone technique also gives your skin a natural glow and radiance. The stone is meant to be used with a gentle hand so as not to pull the skin too hard.
It has been used for centuries by the ancient Chinese dynasties for therapy. The ancient Chinese sure knew what they were talking about and who knows? Maybe it’ll be therapy for you in the morning too! This is the perfect way to wrap up your skincare routine.
