Your skin is like any other organ in your body is a blessing. When things are going well on the inside of your body your skin will reflect that in an outer flow. But when your inner body is unhappy and unhealthy and in need of some tender love and care, your skin will be one of the early signs to show that you need to slow down and pay more attention to your body's needs.
It's time to feed it healthy vibrations and good nourishment. Our skin can physically show us how we are feeling, it has the natural ability to express our emotions and get in touch with our own needs. Thus being said, the occasional pimple or outbreak can be celebrated as it means that we can become more connected with our physical needs in a spiritual way. How amazing that our body shows us exactly what we need? Show yourself a little more love and listen to your body's needs and watch how your self-care practice can improve self-worth, reduce stress, and even increase motivation.
One simple way to improve your physical and spiritual health is to have a sacred beauty bath, this simple ritual will help you literally wash away all your negative feelings and gives you time to connect to your inner self. It's time to invest all of your energy into being fully present and start to think of this bathing ritual as a meditation. By this I mean, show up for yourself, focus on being fully present, and being aware of your breath, your movement, and your thought patterns.
After this, enjoy taking a few moments to slow down and tune into the moment, relax your skin with a gua sha facial.
WHAT IS GUA SHA FACIAL?
Gua Sha is an ancient traditional Chinese healing technique that is used to stimulate the lymphatic system and relax the muscles, which can have a wealth of benefits including a clearer and smoother skin complexion.
This traditional tool has been used over centuries as a gentle facial that is the perfect tool to activate the skin's natural ability to heal itself. Gua sha can be used over the entire body but normally focuses on the face.
Sweep the Gua Sha in an outwards and upward motion around the face and watch the results as it reduces puffiness, eliminates toxins, and improves circulation. Gua Sha essentially re-patterns repetitive muscle movements, unwinding tissues, and relaxing your face into its natural state.
