Soulful Beauty - How to Get Started
We hear about clean beauty, functional beauty, but what is soulful beauty?
It is indulging in and savoring in mindful self care. An intentional approach to beauty. Its being aware and connected to what you put on your body. It is the kind of beauty that radiates from being nourished and balanced physically, emotionally and spiritually. The belief that outer beauty and inter beauty and intimately interlinked. It is a devotion to putting extra effort for yourself, your body, your mind. Basking in the sun. Letting things flow. Always evolving. Always improving. Communion. It is the antithesis to vanity, distraction, perfection and mindless routines. It is soul nourishing.
Soulful beauty is reframing what the beauty industry has taught you for years. Its stopping yourself from yearning for the magazine cover look, unattainable beauty standards and perfection oriented results.
Here is how you can get started on your soulful beauty journey
1. Routines vs Rituals - transform a mundane and mindless routine into an intentional ritual. Have a conscious connection with your body and mind and be aware of what you are doing and why. Be internally motivated and focused on the process as opposed to the outcome. It is the ultimate act of self-love.
2. Skinimalism - take a minimalistic approach to skin care, stripping back a x step routine in favor of a more intentional approach - whether that means reducing the number of products and active ingredients or simply wearing less foundation to allow our real skin to shine through. It’s about harnessing the power of multitasking products and embracing a more sustainable approach.
3. Alchemist of your own beauty - be deeply connected to what you are putting on your skin. Use ingredients only as building blocks. Let your intuition guide you, mix and blend our oils with other ingredients. Indulge your senses, set an intention and anoint yourself.
