The Ultimate Self-Care Ritual



Give yourself permission to practice self-care rituals that prioritize your own standards of happiness. In today’s busy, over-stimulated world, taking the time to slow down can often feel overly indulgent and unproductive, but it’s actually the opposite. Allowing yourself the time and space to rest and revive is one of the best ways to stimulate clarity and increase an overall sense of happiness.

Take moments to take care of yourself, physically, emotionally and spiritually. To make the most of your me-time, create a ritual of consistent practices—routine habits that are nourishing and motivating and can be realistically sustained.

To get you started, we’ve curated the ultimate self-care ritual, specially designed to soothe and improve. Plus, a few of our favorite products.

Skin Brushing. A morning moment, dry brushing offers energizing qualities while improving the look and feel of your skin. Just 3-5 minutes will buzz your body’s connections. Skin is the human body’s largest organ, and skin brushing helps us keep it detoxified with a tantalizing and awakening effect. A healthy, invigorating way to turn sluggish and dull into bright, smooth and glowing. For travelling, we love the Dry Body Brush by EcoTools. (EcoTools produces 100% cruelty-free and vegan synthetic makeup brushes, sponges, applicators and bath accessories that are both stylish and eco-friendly).

Oil Massage. Follow skin brushing with nutrient-rich, organic body oil for a calming, soothing effect that replenishes dry skin—locks in moisture and ensures glowing softness, firmness and radiance. We opt for pure jojoba oil, as it’s the closest molecule to our natural skin.

HD Infrared Sauna Blanket. Perfect at-home or on-the-go, our sauna blankets provide a slimming, detoxifying and mood-heightening experience—using radiant infrared heat to relax and revive the body. Reduce stress and anxiety, purify your system and trigger a feel-good dose of your brain’s happiness chemicals: dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins.

Face Mask + Hair Mask. A nice, gentle way to enhance quiet, calm reflections. Face and hair masks put you into total spa mode and boost confidence in appearance. To save on time, let your hair and face masks set while soaking in your sauna blanket. Infrared heat raises your core body temperature, opening your pores to better absorb face masks. Also, the heat from your scalp will help activate and enhance nourishing hair masks. For the face, we love Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify & Nourish by Origins—formulated with bamboo charcoal, this purifying mask deep cleans and draws out deep-dwelling pore-clogs, impurities and debris, while golden wildflower and fermented honey nourish the skin. For hair, we look for castor oil, which stimulates natural hair growth while restoring and moisturizing damaged strands and nurturing the scalp.

Breathwork + Meditation. Where consciousness and subconscious meet. Focus on slow, intentioned, mindful breathing to encourage deep emotional, psychological and physical cleansing. We can participate in our breath and immediately feel the effects. Enter into meditative states, letting go of unhealthy thoughts, embracing clarity, establishing positive control of energies…effective and endlessly beneficial, regardless of busy schedules and limited spaces. Tip: if you’re new or prefer to practice with guidance, we recommend zoning out with headphones and the 1 Giant Mind app—a great support for learning, growing and developing your self-practice.
