HOW TO BUILD A SKINCARE RITUAL
In this challenging time, most of us are still adjusting to working from home lifestyle and staying indoors as much as possible. Let’s not forget to keep the little ones entertained for the entire day. As women and mothers – we are constantly putting out energy. We pour our heart and soul into caring for our loved ones and before we know it – we are exhausted.
Don’t have time for a long home spa ritual or putting a long list of skincare products on your skin? What if we tell you that a beautiful skincare ritual does not need to be complicated and long at all?
Jan Fay, an organic skincare formulator and founder of Nami Naturale says it shouldn’t be. A strong believer in the power of wellness rituals and the importance of self-care, Jan encourages adapting a wellness ritual, especially in these trying times.
“I am a mother of two and I understand how challenging it is to find time to look after ourselves – that’s why I created a skincare line that will help you achieve the best skincare results without over-complicated skincare routines.”
While her organic skincare line exudes decadence when it comes to green beauty, Jan’s mission is simple – she wanted to create natural skin care rituals that will help create everyday moments of bliss through a luxurious yet minimalistic skincare routine.
“The power of intention is huge. A beauty ritual is more than about your skincare. What is it that you want to gain and achieve? When you step in an intentional moment of committing to self-care and start paying attention to yourself for a moment, you nurture your skin from the outside and nourish your soul from the inside. When an intention is placed behind a routine – a routine then becomes a ritual. Rituals are a sacred time where you can honor your skin and open up yourself to the healing power of love.” – says Jan.
Take a peek below on Jan’s best tips for starting a meaningful self-care ritual during these stressful times.
TAKE A BREAK
Most people would like to get over their cleansing and beauty routines quickly. The key here is to take a break and let go of your worries. Learn to take time out for yourself and focus your energy on taking care of yourself even for a moment.
Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. Studies also show that using specific products with your skincare routine helps alleviate stress so remember to breathe in those calming aromas of your skincare.
INDULGE IN THE POWER OF TOUCH
Be in the moment and revel in every second of it. Slow beauty starts with the way you take care of your skin. Take time to caress your skin. The power of touch is important to reconnect the body, mind, and spirit. Massage your skincare treats to your body as this also helps increase blood circulation and encourages lymphatic drainage.
WORK WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT
Jan says a simple skincare routine at home can constitute as a wellness ritual. She explains that it’s not about the hours you spent or the long list of skincare products you put on your skin. It’s not about whether you have five minutes or fifty minutes to spare. It all comes down to making the most out of what you have and putting an intention each day to focus, take care, and connect with yourself.
Ingredients are critical to empowering you to build a skincare ritual that’s personal and effective. But it is not a shortcut to achieving radiant skin. The key is to commit to the power of a ritual and daily practice of taking care of yourselves.
CHOOSING FOR A SKINCARE RITUAL
While at home, take the time to truly invest in yourself and your skin. We recommend using a minimalist high performance or aromatherapeutic organic skincare range (or a combination of both) to achieve healthy, glowing skin while supporting your inner wellness. To start shopping click here.
