I know, I know: resolutions are “out” this year. We’re all about being mindful of our energy and setting ourselves up for success, so you won’t hear us encouraging you to smash your goals or anything like that… unless you want to, of course. This year is all about understanding what works best for you!
That said, you know that we believe strongly that an efficacious and mindful routine that helps you start and end your day feeling nourished and revitalized can pay dividends throughout your day. With that in mind, here are two impactful ways your routine can support whatever you’re working toward this year!
1. Your skincare routine can help you get organized and focused.
When you have a personal care routine that is clean, uncluttered, delightful and strongly suited for your skin, then you are better able start and end your day on the right foot. It sets the tone for everything else you do that day!
If your routine feels like it’s a little scattered or cluttered or simply not addressing your needs, let’s fix it! Start by assessing what you want from your am/pm skincare, and get rid of the pieces that aren’t helping you get there. Next, think about what you’re missing. What items do you need to add in so your routine is complete and serving you just what you need to start and end your day on the right note. Ps: don’t forget the pleasure and sensorial elements of personal care!
2. Your skincare routine can help you get grounded.
We spend the majority of our day working towards the goals of other people, whether it’s at work or at home. It can leave us feeling like we barely have time for ourselves, much less pursuing personal growth!
Having moments of our day where we stop and focus on ourselves helps to reinforce that we in fact do have time and deserve that time - practice makes perfect! The positive mindful impacts of cleansing our skin, massaging our face, gently applying a mask with a soothing, delicate brush, and breathing deeply with an aromatherapy blend, can’t be understated!
All these tactile and sensory experiences help us to drop in and reconnect with our thoughts and our breath, resulting in improved presence of mind. A lovely routine also helps us to simply find moments of delight! Little moments of happiness and enjoyment - creating time for ourselves to just feel good is truly so therapeutic. Bring it all together and you’ve got a happier nervous system that is ready to tackle whatever comes next, and pursue all the growth you look forward to this year!
If you need help creating a routine that serves you better, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We are always so excited to help folks on their skincare and wellness journey 💕 Whether you’re pondering New Years goals or just wanting to enjoy your rituals more, we can help you find just what you’re looking for.
Wishing you a happy skincare routine!
