Have your skin and soul been experiencing a summer slump lately? You may need a reset, and September is the perfect time. ✨
September can cause seasonal affective disorder (SAD) due to reduced sunlight, which can cause a drop in serotonin that may trigger depression. The change in season can disrupt the balance of the body's level of melatonin, which plays a role in sleep patterns and mood.
If you're feeling the funk, read on for three easy ways to reset skin, soul, and mind.
On the outside, I've always found that by this point in the year, I've acquired a fresh layer of sunspots that I need to address.
My skin reset involves:
The Cherry Collagen Peel encourages cellular turnover. Savor Beauty's collagen-rich exfoliating peel of cherry, pineapple, and papaya enzymes gently eat away dead skin cells. 🍒
Then, I gently massage in the Carrot Rose Serum with natural retinol to reset the skin. It helps prevent pore-clogging and dehydration caused by dead skin cells.
Carrot seeds are packed with vitamin A, which makes them a natural retinol capable of erasing hyperpigmentation, diminishing wrinkles, and smoothing skin texture. ✨
On the inside, meditations have become my non-negotiable self-care for mindfulness. This ensures that I can show up for myself, and those I love. Daily meditation can be effective in reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders, even if just five minutes a day!
I’ve created an “I Receive” guided meditation for you. It's helped me to go from pushing for outcomes to receiving and allowing.
Every 90 days, I also like to do a mind reset. You can find the full how-to in our Savor Beauty Planner, or simply ask yourself these three questions to remove excess “noise” from your life and start with a clean slate:
- What’s flowing?
- What’s not flowing?
- What’s the “gorgeous” in the chaos to focus on?
Here's to an easy, breezy, and soulful September reset!
