Calming and healing skincare and treatments
Of course, these treatments can be applied on any day. But let us focus today on our routines and spend a tiny bit of time updating/improving them.
Apply calming, healing, and nourishing skincare products, especially during the Waxing Moon.
If you suffer from very dry skin, eczema, broken lips, hard skin on your feet, dry elbows, or even psoriasis then do something about it. Other problem areas are acne, overactive oily skin, and teenage (hormonal) skin problems.
If you suffer from pigmentation problems you may also consider treatment today.
For ongoing problems you need of course see a doctor or skin care specialist.
Your skin is your largest organ and will show up any imbalances before organs get ill. Do listen to these signs.
Read your face
Skin irritations, hyper-sensitive skin, prone to allergies, excessively oily skin, and spots are signs that your body craves extra care and attention. Here are a few signs to look out for:
Spots near your temples:
this is a sign that your gallbladder and liver are overactive.
Breaking easily into a sweat, especially between nose and mouth:
This is your heart. It often happens after a large meal or when stressed (ignore if it is purely down to heat exposure like a sauna).
Spots in the chin area:
This is hormonal and often happens just before or during menstruation.
Losing hair, especially around your face: Again a hormonal reaction, most common during pregnancy. Don’t worry your hair will come back even stronger during breastfeeding.
Spots/dry patches/imperfections on the apple of your cheeks:
This shows a weakened stomach/spleen or pancreas area. Go easy on sugar for a while and try to eat a more alkaline diet by adding lemon water in the morning instead of tea or coffee.
Very dry, pale skin, especially in the outer cheek area towards the neck and ears.
This is the lung area. Add more exercise in the fresh air, extra deep moisturizing procedures, and drink lots of water.
Rings under the eyes:
This is the kidney area. Be kinder to yourself, drink and sleep more.
Blocked sinuses, puffy face/eyes:
usually indicates some kind of food intolerance, especially lactose and gluten. Get a food intolerance test done or cut out food for a week at a time and keep a food journal to see if it makes a difference.
