The hustle and bustle of life and its obligations can lead to burnout, keeping us distracted from operating on all our powerful wavelengths.
The Summer Solstice is a wonderful time to reevaluate our habits and daily activities to reconnect with nature, self, and spirit. And nature’s botanicals are a beautiful way to embrace the natural world as you fold them into your self-care routine during this special time.
Why Summer Solstice is Significant
The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year. It’s a symbol of awakening, positivity, and potential. Spiritual availability is important during this significant season — when you revitalize and open up your spirit, you can connect to your desires, begin to manifest what you most want, and gain momentum towards a positive, fruitful future.
Your Skin, Organic Botanicals, and the Summer Solstice
Your skin is your biggest organ, providing the perfect opportunity to lavish love and health upon your physical self. The simple act of taking care of your physical body can have benefits for your holistic well-being, too. Slowing down and consciously attending to your health can be spiritually and emotionally uplifting and reenergizing.
We’re sharing a luxurious skincare routine to help you cleanse, protect, and hydrate your skin while opening up your many senses and spiritual side to celebrate the Summer Solstice. You’ll harness the summer’s powerful potential — and look amazing while doing it!
The Summer Solstice Sacred Skincare Routine
The radiance-enhancing Mist of Immortelle carries the illuminating and hydrating powers of botanical Corsican immortelle, frankincense, and blue tansy deep into your skin.
Although the act of misting is quick and convenient, we recommend you take a moment to feel the cool mist on your skin in summer heat, and take a few deep breaths to inhale deeply the scented magic of neroli aromatic waters. Imagine it penetrating
deep into your skin and plumping it, activating your inner radiance.
Then… take one more deep breath.
The classic rose is a sumptuous botanical with incredible health benefits to your skin and spirit — including the power to shrink those unmistakable signs of aging, and open up your heart chakra with its romantic floral scent.
Radiant Rose Glow Serum is an absolute delight for the senses and the skin! It helps regenerate skin-enhancing collagen and elastin production and keeps skin looking firm and radiant. When
combined with a facial massage using the Radiant Rose™ Gemstone Toolset, this skin nectar supports a healthy inflammatory response, creating a smooth, even-toned complexion and a noteworthy reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
The cooling rose quartz tool stimulates pressure points, offering beneficial mind-body effects, moving stagnant energy throughout the body and stimulating circulation.
Keep your rose quartz toolset in the freezer and take it out for this ritual.
- Dab a generous amount of rose serum under your eyes. Take the cool quartz tools and gently smooth them out and up, starting near your nose, bringing them in a sweeping motion towards the tips of your ears. A minute or so of this gentle sweeping motion with the serum and cool quartz will reduce bags and puffiness under your eyes and invigorate your skin.
- Apply rose serum around the corners of your mouth. Take both tools, and simultaneously press them at the corners of your mouth and make small circles, up and away from the mouth. This will not only reduce those fine lines and hydrate and plump the skin around your lips, it will help you smile, which uplifts your mood.
- Dab a small amount of serum near the corners of your eyes. Repeat the circular motion from step 2 above, for one minute — up and out in tiny circles.
This gentle but powerful facial routine focuses on acupuncture points to provide whole body benefits. Get the set here: Radiant Rose™ Gemstone Facial Collection.
Hydrated skin is happy skin. And nothing restores, hydrates, and illuminates like Immortelle Perfecting Crème.
This indulgent facial creme, though luxurious, is not heavy or greasy. Its precious plant butters are deeply nourishing, and restorative, and help the skin restore elastin and produce collagen, which can firm, plump, and activate cellular regeneration. And its deeply comforting aroma is divine – soothing and settling for both the complexion and mind.
After your facial massage with the rose quartz tools, use clean hands or your tools, to distribute and gently rub the Immortelle perfecting cream on your face, neck, and decolletage. As usual, inhale deeply to enjoy this botanical blend of Corsican immortelle, blue tansy, and frankincense.
