Mindful Skincare

Do you just go through the motions of your daily skincare routine?

Why not instil the process with self- love, acceptance and relaxation.

Mindful skincare can destress and clear your mind whilst nourishing and caring for your skin at the same time. Stress has been found to contribute to a host of health problems, to potentially cause disease and accelerate ageing, causing us to look and feel older much earlier.

Applying mindfulness to our skincare routine improves our overall well-being.

So how do we instil mindfulness into our skincare?

1. Quality Natural, Cruelty-free Products

Choose natural, toxin-free products which are free of parabens, sulphates, synthetic fragrances and other nasties. Also go for certified cruelty-free, vegan and environmentally friendly products which are not only healthy for you and your family but kind to animals and the planet. You can then feel good about your product choices and minimise your “footprint on the planet”.

The raw beauty skincare range ticks all these boxes, being natural, vegan, certified cruelty- free and free of toxins.

2. Self nourishment

Rather than being distracted, take the time to make skincare the act of self- care and nourishment. Be in the present moment. Treat it as an important contribution not only to your beauty but also to your overall health & well-being.

3. Breathing

Take deep breaths and inhale the beautiful natural aromas of your products. This will create a sense or relaxation and serenity. Our raw beauty naturally products have a beautiful subtle yet invigorating lemon myrtle aroma. We use all-natural essential oils, synthetic fragrances are never added.

4. Massage

Rather than quickly applying your skincare product, gently apply and massage your skincare product into your skincare to increase blood flow promoting healthy glowing skin. Take a bit of extra time to really massage each product into your skin to allow for better absorption.

Raw beauty’s Kakadu Plum & Sunflower Body Lotion or our Lilly Pilly Body Butter are beautiful options for self -massage.

We are constantly on the go, so it’s important to take even just a few minutes a day to be mindful and really enjoy the present moment. Instilling your skincare routines with mindfulness can help you achieve this resulting in reduced stress and improved overall well-being.
