Taking care of our skin and body goes far beyond products and treatments. No matter how meticulously you plan out your skincare routine, adopting a ritual is always better. If you’re asking yourself, what’s the difference between rituals and routines, I’ll get to that. Read on to find out more.
The difference between a ritual and a routine is not necessarily the action, but the attitude that goes alongside. For skincare, while you may be using the same products for a ritual as you would a routine, the results can be very different.
More often than not, a routine becomes a chore very quickly. For example, we wake up every morning and get dressed, brush our teeth and apply our skincare essentials. It’s not a meaningful part of our day, but we do it anyway. Because of this, it becomes a chore.
Rituals are the opposite. Rituals are much more meaningful practice, which allows us to take out of our day. Often, a ritual gives a real sense of purpose, making it perfect for skin care.
As I’ve said before, having great skin doesn’t just happen overnight. It also doesn’t happen purely as a result of using the same products religiously. While they certainly work, we should carve out the time to adopt a ritual.
Our environment plays a huge part when it comes to our skin and overall health. From stress and lack of sleep to our diet, there are many factors we need to consider. Sometimes, taking just 10 minutes out of every day to spend on ourselves and our skin can work wonders.
While finding out what works for your skin and your mind is a very personal process, I’m on hand with some tips to consider when you’re crafting your very own ritual. Remember, this isn’t just about the products you’re using, but the environment you’re using them in, and the time you’re taking for yourself.
Remember to incorporate tips and products that you’ve learnt from your skin care specialist. If you’re not sure which products are good for your skin, I can advise you. For skincare rituals to truly work, you should have a good understanding of your skin conditions and the products you need to combat them. Once you’ve enjoyed a course of treatments with me, you’ll walk away confident enough to continue your rituals in the comfort of your own home. After all, we deserve to show ourselves some love every day.
