Balance Tip - Winter Sacred Cleanse
Posted on May 31 2016
Winter has arrived. The air is cold, the winds can be harsh and you expose your skin to extremes of hot and cold. This can be challenging for your skin and it may become dry, itchy and perhaps become flaky. Try this Bath Cleanse with Organic Coconut Oil to keep your skin soft, supple, healthy and moisturised.
Your bath time is a sacred moment in time to help soothe your body, mind and soul. Surround your bathroom with things that help you relax be it music, candles or plants. Before you get into your bath, give your body a gentle dry brush – If you do not have a brush you can use an organic cotton washcloth – this will gently remove any dead skin on your body and stimulate blood circulation for regeneration and glowing skin. Draw a warm bath (not a hot bath) and avoid soaking for too long. Use an organic coconut oil, rub it in your hands to melt it down and massage it into your skin with slow gentle strokes. Wash your body with the warm bath water and then pat yourself dry (not rub) with an organic cotton towel as your pores are open and you do not want harsh chemicals entering your body and bloodstream. Gently rub some more coconut oil into your dry skin you will notice immediately how soft your skin feels. This is a wonderful winter ritual to keep your skin soft and healthy.
