Skin & Body Self-Care Tools For Valentine's Day

Posted

Valentine's Day is upon us. It’s time to schedule some me-time. Here is our guide to the ultimate self-care home ritual with skincare care, body care and organic beauty tools. 

Body Brushing

Quite possibly one of the most frequently documented wellness practices and for good reason. This technique, performed dry, stimulates the lymphatic system by activating and speeding up the transport of oxygen to the body's cells and tissue, aiding lymph nodes, ducts and vessels in the detoxification of the blood.

Brushing tip: Always brush towards the heart using long, smooth strokes and remember to rehydrate post brush to assist the body’s detoxification. Use a sustainable loofar oSanctum Body Polish. A dry scrub with coffee and salt particles. The unique, gentle infusion of salt, ground coffee and crushed macadamia nut shells will effectively remove dead skin cells and help improve circulation. Immerse yourself and reveal your smoother side


Magnesium Bath

The benefits of magnesium baths are vast. Soaking in magnesium salts has been shown to improve skin hydration, accelerate wound healing and decrease inflammation, as well as being hugely effective in aiding detoxification, stress-relief and of course, relaxation.

Soak instructions: Simply dissolve one to three cups of the magnesium flakes into a warm tub and soak for 30 minutes or more. Follow with Sanctum Body Soothe, for certified organic, post-soak hydration.


Self-Massage

There is no greater expression of self-love than self-massage. The much overlooked nerve-calming, lymph-moving, circulation-boosting practice is something we can all schedule into our busy lives, and it really is as simple as it sounds. 

Take a moment post-bath or shower when the skin is still supple. Massage Sanctum Body Balm into your limbs, using long, rounded strokes to hydrate the skin, applying pressure where needed.

Jade Roller

Keen to add on to your self-massage experience? Invest in a Jade Roller. The popular beauty tool acts as drainage by way of encouraging the lymphatic system’s natural detoxification process and brightens by boosting the circulation and blood flow beneath the skin.

Jade is also said to be a cooling stone that provides a firm, smooth surface allowing access into muscles and tissues with a pressure.

The trick is to work around your facial contours, with a little pressure and without forgetting the neck. Cleanse the skin first, and always apply Sanctum Moisture Concentrate post-roll.
