We live in a world where the term self-care has become distorted with all sorts of societal judgements and expectations from ourselves and others. For some self-care comes with ideas of selfishness, indulgence and the unnecessary. For others it comes with a sense of peace, relief and an understanding that without taking some time for self-care we risk burn-out, anxiety, depression and overwhelm. What self-care looks like is different for each individual. What is self-care to you?
Using a facial roller and Gua Sha has several physical benefits, but we love how taking that time for yourself in your day is an opportunity for connection, ritual and mindfulness. An opportunity to be present. To slow down. To take a moment to truly be with yourself.
There is evidence that the facial roller and Gua Sha were used by Chinese royalty and other high society members as early as the 17th century to achieve and maintain a naturally beautiful and youthful appearance. Using a facial roller and Gua Sha can
- promote lymphatic drainage + blood circulation
- tighten + firm the skin
- brightening in complexion minimisation of pores
-prevent + reduce the appearance of fine lines
- reduce puffiness
- reduce dark circles under the eyes
- relieve and relax the muscles while firming them without tension
- can support clear skin, improving issues such as acne and rosacea
- lighten and minimise age spots and other skin discolouration
While all of these are fantastic benefits, we encourage creating this daily ritual for a connection to self, a nurturing of your own wellbeing and time to swim in the yin energy of "being", while still "doing" something for yourself and self-care.
There are also several meridians, used within Traditional Chinese Medicine, that begin and end on the face or flow through the face and by stimulating these you connect deeper with your energetic system and encourage a more positive flow of energy at the same time.
We combine the use of our facial roller and Gua Sha with our Nourish - skin drink. As someone that has sensitive skin, I am very mindful of what I expose my skin to. This has been overwhelming at times to decide on what the best options are and how to avoid ending up with a 12 step skin care regime that just isn’t appealing or sustainable for someone like me on the daily.
However, I do understand the importance of taking care of my skin from both the inside and the outside. And so I have made every effort over the years to keep my skin care simple, clean and effective while bringing in some extra magic and tools so that it creates an invitation for me to connect with myself, nurture myself and be present in the moment without having to take an hour each morning and night. The outcome was the Nourish Skin Drink.
This blend was crafted to nourish the skin and create balance without requiring the use of 5 different creams with a list of ingredients that even my science living brain couldn’t pronounce. Bringing moisture and protection, while healing and soothing the skin without exposing the body to harmful chemicals.
We absorb chemicals through our skin directly into our blood stream. We are already exposed to so many things we can’t always avoid and so it is important to limit harmful and toxic exposure in the areas we can. Skin care is one of these areas and that’s why we keep our skin drink simple.
We chose to use the highly restorative and nourishing calendula oil as our base as it has been used for many centuries across all sorts of traditional therapies from Ayurveda to Traditional Chinese Medicine and is now Commonly found in mainstream salves and creams for soothing and nurturing the skin.
Calendula holds remarkable anti-inflammatory properties with ample antioxidants and provides a soothing and cooling experience for the skin leaving it feeling rejuvenated. The high concentration of antioxidants resists free radical damage which is related to premature ageing of the skin, early wrinkle formation and loss of skin elasticity which has made calendula very popular in many facial products. Calendula can also help regulate the oil production of the sebaceous glands, ultimately preventing breakouts and help in the healing and repair of any current breakouts, wounds or dry skin.
The essential oil blends has been chosen to support the physical balance of the skin as well as create a sense of emotional and energetic harmony and mindfulness.
