The concept of mindfulness is a hot topic as of late – the idea of being aware in the present moment holds the potential to unlock a more peaceful, rewarding daily life. To dig a bit deeper, the experts at Psychology Today put it this way:
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you carefully observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to your current experience, rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future.
While mindfulness is sometimes categorized with meditation, it differs in that it can be applied to every moment in your day. Here at Actifirm, that got us thinking: How could your skincare regimen be improved by applying mindfulness to the practice? Consider the following acts of mindfulness in enhancing your daily skincare practice:
- Choose Quality Products. A simple, natural regimen with proven efficacy is the logical path when practicing mindful skincare. Our Natural Basics Kit offers a stress-free way to try a complete and balanced regimen – and in August, you’ll receive 10% off your next purchase when you buy this travel-sized set.
- Make Skincare an Act of Self-Nourishment. Don’t think about skincare as a task to hastily check off your list – take your time and think of it an important contribution to your health, wellbeing, and beauty that requires careful attention. This shift in perspective can make all the difference. After all, as the body’s largest organ, your skin deserves a little TLC!
- Use Skincare Time for Positive Thinking. Rather than running down your to-do list or thinking about that fact that your bathroom sink could use a scrubbing, use the few minutes you take for skincare each day for positive self-reflection. Celebrate your accomplishments, think about the meaningful connections in your life, and reflect on your inner and outer beauty. You’re worth it!
