Spring is a time for renewal. To make this time of year extra special, create your owner personal Spring Detox Ritual. What you put in and on your body, and the environment that surrounds you, sets the tone for how your step into Spring. A few healthy tweaks to your routine can make a world of difference!
Develop a Healthy Morning Routine
How our start your morning sets the tone for the whole day. Developing a new healthy habit takes time—Give it a full 21 days to stick.
Here are a few of our morning favorites:
- Drink Warm Lemon Water upon waking
- Dry brush before your shower
- Make a morning green juice or smoothie
- Develop a meditation or yoga practice
“Feng Shui” Your Environment
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system that seeks to harmonize individuals with their surroundings. In Feng Sui principles, clearing clutter is the first step towards improving your wellbeing. Here are some great places to begin. Give away old clothes.
Clear out the kitchen cabinets.
Spring clean your home office.
Set up a system to handle mail.
Sort through and toss old papers.
Handle all your electronic clutter by clearing email in boxes and setting up smart folders.
Empty that junk drawer. Toss the junk and add a tray to organize the things you want to keep.
Freshen the Air
Shake out the rugs, open up the windows, and refresh stale air with Eucalyptus Shower Mist—a pure aromatherapy treatment for your room or shower. To enjoy all the benefits of a spa steam room at home, mist a few spritzes into your shower before getting in, or spray directly into bath water.
Take a Virtual Walk in Nature
If confined to the concrete jungle, take a virtual walk in nature with Tree of Life Forest Bathing Oil. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of Shinrin-Yoku (literally Forest Air Bathing), which encourages spending time in forests for the health benefits that brings, this luxurious blend of native forest oils includes calming Frankincense and Sandalwood, Bergamot and Sweet Orange. No bathtub? Add to pressure points such as wrists and ankles to breath in Spring every day!
Prepare your skin for warmer weather
As the season changes to spring, you can develop a lackluster complexion from a buildup of dead skin cells. Exfoliation followed by the replenishment of moisture is the solution. Exfoliation can be physical, like a scrub, or chemical, using acids such as lactic, glycolic or retinols.
We suggest booking a professional facial at the change of every season. Your daily program is paramount, but a facial at a spa or dermatologist will take your skin care program to the next level.
