Holistic Skincare Rituals

We’re at the end of January which means the new year is in full swing. I’ve never been a big of term resolutions as it relates to planning for the new year, you can read my thoughts in my Anti-Resolutions post. However, I always find the new year is a good time to reevaluate things: finances, personal goals, health, fitness, eating, self-care routines, and how we spend our time.

I’d like to propose that you reevaluate your skincare rituals. With anti-aging gimmicks and products containing toxins and forever chemicals on the rise, I want to ensure your self-care routine encompasses holistic practices which will go beyond prioritizing the appearance but also support the overall health of your skin. Holistic skincare goes beyond topical treatments; it involves nourishing your skin from the inside out. Today, we'll explore some natural skincare tips and rituals to promote healthy, radiant skin.

1. Hydration is Key: One of the simplest yet most effective ways to promote healthy skin is by staying hydrated. Ensure you're drinking an adequate amount of water daily to keep your skin well-hydrated and supple. Herbal teas and infused water with a couple drops of lemon essential oil or slices of lemon can add an extra dose of antioxidants. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, MetaPWR Metabolic Blend or any cirtrus essential oil 

2. Nutrient-Rich Diet: Beautiful skin starts with a balanced and nutrient-rich diet. Include foods high in vitamins A, C, E, and omega-3 fatty acids. Berries, leafy greens, nuts, and fatty fish are excellent choices to support skin health. Consider adding a daily dose of collagen-rich foods like bone broth to enhance skin elasticity. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Lifelong Vitality Supplements, doTERRA Greens, MetaPWR Advantage with Collagen + NMN
3. Digestive Health: A healthy gut contributes to healthy skin. Practice mindful eating, chew your food thoroughly, and consider incorporating probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut into your diet to support gut health. doTERRA Product Recommendations: PB Restore ProBiome Complex, PB Assist+ ProBiome Gut Complex, TerraZyme Digestive Enzyme Complex, Peppermint Softgels
4. Gentle Cleansing: Opt for natural and gentle cleansers that don't strip the skin of its natural oils. Consider oil cleansing using plant-based oils like castor, jojoba or coconut oil to remove impurities without disrupting the skin's balance. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Fractionated Coconut Oil, Verage Cleanser, Body Oil Carrier Blend

5. DIY Facial Masks: Treat your skin to homemade facial masks using natural ingredients. Ingredients like honey, yogurt, aloe vera, and turmeric have soothing and rejuvenating properties. Create a weekly ritual of pampering your skin with these nourishing masks.
6. Sun Protection: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by incorporating natural sun protection. Use a mineral-based sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Additionally, wear a wide-brimmed hat and seek shade during peak sun hours. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Detoxifying Mud Mask, Yarrow|Pom Active Botanical Nutritive Duo, Reveal Facial System
7. De-Stress: Stress can take a toll on your skin. Incorporate stress-reducing practices like meditation, stretching or deep breathing exercises into your routine. The mind-body connection plays a significant role in maintaining healthy skin. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Adaptiv System
8. Quality Sleep: Prioritizing a good night's sleep is essential for skin repair and regeneration. Create a calming bedtime routine, limit screen time before sleep, and ensure your sleep environment is conducive to rest by paying attention to light, sound, temperature, and aroma. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Serenity Sleep System
9. Stay Active: Regular physical activity promotes blood circulation, delivering essential nutrients to the skin. Aim for a mix of cardio and strength training exercises to keep your skin and body in optimal condition. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Deep Blue Stick + Copaiba, Athlete's Kit

10. Holistic Products: Choose skincare products with natural ingredients. Be mindful of what you apply to your skin, opting for products free from harsh chemicals and toxins. Consider incorporating essential oils like frankincense, rose, lavender, and tea tree for added benefits. doTERRA Product Recommendations: Verage Skin Care Collection, Essential Skin Care Kit, Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend, Correct-X, Yarrow|Pom Collection: Capsules, Body Renewal Serum and essential oil blend

Incorporating these holistic skincare rituals goes beyond achieving a radiant complexion; it's about nurturing your skin's health and vitality. Remember, consistency is key, and these rituals are an investment in the long-term well-being of your skin.
