Magic of Meditation
Meditation counteracts stress hormones, which can lead to acne flare-ups, rosacea, psoriasis and other skin conditions. It’s also one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to improve nearly every aspect of life, from sleep to handling stress. Just a few minutes of daily mediation can have transformative results. Start with just five minutes: Close your eyes, sit up straight and inhale from your diaphragm for five seconds. Count to five, then exhale through pursed lips for five seconds. Try the RESPEKT: Beauty Meditation App
Rest and Reset
Getting the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep can have tremendous effects on your body, mind and spirit. Your body not only repairs itself during sleep, but your brain prepares for the next day. Sleep increases immunity, metabolism and strengthens the heart while lifting your overall mood. Functioning with less than seven hours of sleep decreases reaction time and quadruples the chances of getting in a car accident. If you’re struggling to get the recommended hours of sleep, avoid supplements and sleep aids.
Aside from the obvious benefits of massage therapy—relaxation and stress reduction—massages can help eliminate cellulite and wrinkles. Cellulite massages help reduce cellulite by breaking up fat deposits, while facial massages relax tense muscles that cause wrinkles. But that’s not all—massage therapy also improves circulation, stimulates collagen production, detoxifies the skin and stimulates new cell growth. Fullbody massages are recommended, but to combat wrinkles at home, try a daily three-minute facial with the help of the Facetory App.
