When you care for your skin, it’s healthier, rejuvenated, and more beautiful, and our exclusive line which combines traditional Chinese medicine and modern skincare technology allows you to care for it in the most effective way possible.
A balanced life, on the other hand, comes in physical, emotional and spiritual forms.
Our body rejuvenates and feels refreshed from a balanced life, which results in healthy glowing skin.
However, achieving a balanced lifestyle requires commitment and making the choice every day to live in a way that’s healthier for your body, your mind, your spirit, and of course, your skin.
#1 –Practice meditation
Meditation can not only restore harmony to your spirit, it can also address the underlying causes of your skin problems. The process of meditation brings prana (or energy) into your body to calm stress and promote youthful cellular repair, while the focused breathing you do during meditation enhances oxygen delivery to all of your tissues for a vibrant glow.
That’s not the end of the benefits meditation can bring to your lifestyle and your skin…
Research has also shown that meditating increases the “feel good” chemicals, dopamine and serotonin, in your brain to boost your mood. And, when you feel better, your happiness shines through.
#2 – Practice self-care
It seems like the world around us is only moving faster, and we feel we have to move faster just to keep up. For many of us, that means we don’t take time out of our day to exercise, get a massage, or even just take a warm, relaxing bath while reading our favorite book.
Unfortunately, burning the candle at both ends raises your stress level, ruins your sleep, and can leave harsh signs on your delicate skin.
Make a point to take time to care for yourself. Even small things count, such as taking five minutes to rub a soothing oil into your skin, spritzing on your favorite natural perfume, or allowing yourself a few minutes each day to rest and listen to rejuvenating music.
#3 – Embrace minimalist living
Minimalist living is the art of clearing out the clutter in your life in order to make room for what’s truly important to you. This allows you to rid yourself of the things that create added stress and live intentionally.
You can embrace a minimalist lifestyle in your skincare routine by tossing out the piles of products you’ve accumulated that are packed with toxins and instead choosing only the few that are truly good for your skin.
This type of living also includes decluttering your home, eliminating toxic relationships that add stress to your life, and even cleaning up your diet. Ask yourself, “Do I need this in my life? Does it add value?” If the answer is no, allow yourself the freedom to live without it.
#4 – Choose natural over toxic synthetic products
There’s an old saying…
“Good in, good out.”
And, it’s definitely true when it comes to the products you use on your skin.
When you slather on beauty products that are laden with toxic chemicals and those chemicals seep deep into your pores, your skin health will suffer. It becomes inflamed and irritated, and your aging can accelerate.
Instead, switch to organic and natural beauty products that deliver rich nutrients and skin benefits without those toxic chemicals.
This will ensure that every time you apply the products, your skin will become calmer, healthier, smoother, and more youthful-looking.
#5 – Reduce stress
Like the chemicals found in so many beauty products on the shelf, stress is toxic to your skin, negatively effects on your health, and contributes to aging.
When you feel stress creeping in, take a moment to focus your thoughts on the cause, and then slowly release them along with a cleansing breath. This mindfulness will benefit your body, your spirit, and your skin.
Many of us hold our stress behind our eyes, resulting in those raging headaches that can keep you in a locked room. For a quick stress buster, massage a soothing eye oil using the tips of your fingers in a circle around your eyes. This can help combat the tension as well as the signs of aging it can cause.
#6 – Get plenty of sleep
Every cell in your body, including your skin cells, repair themselves while you sleep. So, if you’re not getting enough sleep or enough high quality sleep, premature aging can be the result.
To ensure you’re cells have the repair time they need, go to bed and get up at the same time every day, eliminate sources of light from your bedroom that can keep you from sleeping deeply, avoid consuming caffeine late in the day, and get out in the bright morning sunlight to reset your Circadian clock.
#7 – Eat a healthy, balanced diet
Beauty is more than skin deep, and it all begins from the inside. In order to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin, you need to feed it the antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients it needs through a healthy, balanced diet.
For gorgeous, glowing skin, get plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, and green tea in your daily diet.
#8 – Maintain good hydration
Your skin is an organ, and its cells are made up of water. So, without sufficient amounts of water, your skin cells won’t function as well and your skin can become dry and wrinkled.
In order to keep it healthy, you need to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, which will help to flush out toxins, and keep your skin firm and glowing.
#9 – Stay positive and be joyful
One surprising secret for achieving more beautiful skin is to focus on happiness. Staying positive can help you appear younger to those around you, while also lowering your stress levels and ensuring you age gracefully.
A few ways to stay positive and embrace the joy in your life include spending time with positive people, keeping a “gratefulness” journal, and setting attainable goals for yourself.
So, if you’re ready to achieve true beauty, use the nine tips above to balance your life and care for your skin the Laloirelle way. You’ll see the results of healthy, glowing, gorgeous skin every time you look in the mirror.
