Mindful Mantras: How Positive Affirmations Can Heal Your Skin.
This week, we are exploring mindful mantras that can be used in conjunction with your organic skincare ritual to enhance your inner AND outer glow. Why? Because in our experience, it works.
Often we rush through our skincare steps, viewing them as yet another item to be checked off on the AM & PM to-do list. What if, instead, we view taking care of our skin and respecting our bodies as a form of gratitude for the miracle of life? It’s not vain or indulgent; it’s the ultimate act of self-love, and a spiritual right that’s woven into the very core of our being!
Inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and rosacea are sometimes the manifestation of endless self-criticism and anxiety. Do you have negative thought patterns about your skin? Are you always putting yourself down or shooing away compliments about your appearance? Words are healing! Use these three simple mantras during your skincare ritual (think of them as a juice cleanse for the soul!) to transform old beliefs about beauty that are holding you back from truth, joy, and skin health!
- Speak these words (or play them on repeat in your mind with intention!) while applying Om Aroma & Co. cleanser in gentle circular strokes: “Every cell of my body is rejoicing and radiating health!”
- Use this affirmation while spritzing a Ph balanced alcohol-free toner. All of our Om Aroma & Co. toning mists have uplifting aromatherapy benefits. Choose the aroma that you feel most drawn to – Lavender, Lemongrass, Rose, Neroli or Tea Tree. You can either apply directly to skin in a gentle mist, or apply toner in upward strokes using a cotton round. Then, repeat after us: “Today I choose joy and peace.”
- Lastly, nourish skin with a beauty oil such as Om Aroma & Co. Raspberry Serum and repeat: “I am grateful for my healthy skin. My skin is beautiful and nourished.”
