A mindful skincare ritual can work wonders for mental health; by setting aside a few minutes of your day to nourish your skin, you are devoting time to caring for yourself and diverting your energy away from negativity and external pressures.
What is ‘Mindful Skincare’?
To understand the meaning behind this term, it is important to first grasp the concept of “mindfulness”. The history of mindfulness goes back hundreds of years, where the term “mindfulness” originally comes from the Buddhist concept of “Sati,” which is a concept of slowing down to be present and aware of thoughts, physical sensations and the world around us.
Today, mindfulness has merged into many aspects of our lives, including walking, eating, exercising, working on a task, spending time with your loved ones, and of course skincare! As mindfulness is about being present in the moment and acknowledging your senses, the concept of “Mindful Skincare’ works around creating a space where you give yourself time to reconnect with yourself and show loving attention to your skin.
