Make Your Skin a Priority

“Spend time on your skin,” Louise said. “When you apply products, spend time doing it and make it a ritual. It shouldn’t just be about product application. When you use a product, it should also be about the feeling that it brings to you too,” she explained. “Take a minute to take it all in and experience the moment. You can warm a product in your hand  then put it on your skin, smell it, take a breath and meditate.”

Sleep On Something Soft
