Acupressure Self Massage

I am a firm believer in facial massage. You have a great opportunity twice daily to do a little lymphatic or acupressure self massage. This is help create better circulation of blood and lymph, reduce congestion and puffiness and keep skin looking amazing! So, while cleansing or applying your serums morning and night – take a couple extra minutes to massage the product and reap the many benefits!

Here’s an easy and fast acupressure massage routine to get you started:

You Should Be Taking Tumeric

Turmeric is such a wonderful ingredient with anti-microbal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Taken internally with a bit of coconut milk, honey or black pepper, turmeric can boost vitality and decrease inflammation internally. It will also help support liver health! I also really like using it in my facial masks with a bit of yogurt, lemon and honey. Turmeric will aid in softening and brightening the skin, and reducing any redness or inflammation topically!

Here is a great summary of the basic benefits found in turmeric powder and recipes to incorporate it into your diet:

The Skin – Brain Connection

I have known for a while that stress negatively affects the skin. It can exacerbate acne or eczema and cause rosacea flares in many people. I focus on relieving tension and stress in my facial treatments because it can allow the skin to release more toxins and aid in breaking up gristled collagen in the skin. It’s also important for aiding in lymph movement and reducing muscle aches / headaches.

However, this article takes this concept one step further. There is strong evidence that suggests many inflammatory skin conditions are connected to emotional or stress related issues in the mind. Getting to the root of these emotional stagnations can do a lot to help with acne breakouts, scarring and inflammatory skin disorders of all kinds. The key to holistic skincare is combining internal nutrition, emotional wellness, stress reduction and topical stimulation and nourishment!

Get to Know Carrier Oils

Carrier oils, or base oils, are plant based oils used to dilute essential oils for topical use. They can also be used to make body scrubs, face masks and used for hydration and massage in general. There are soooo many to choose from, so how do you know which will work best for your needs? here ya go! This is a great place to start in learning about carrier oils. A wonderful resource for naming the main constituents, vitamins, thickness and useage for popular plant based carrier oils. My favorites are still coconut for body and rosehip, tamanu, grapeseed, jojoba and avocado for face!

Physical Wellness is Connected to Emotional Welless

Our minds govern our physical bodies. We become what we thing, focus on and suppress. I love how this simple chart shows just some of the many ways our emotions are manifested physically in our bodies. This is one of the main reasons I do so much massage and practice mindfulness in my treatments.

Enjoy! Now, go meditate and get a massage!!
