In this blog I want to talk about another aspect of skin care: the sensory and pleasurable aspects.
Yes, we all want to take great care of our skin because it is the largest organ in our body, it has a protective function against physical damage and foreign bodies, it regulates body temperature, and the list can go on and on. In addition, our skin has another absolutely remarkable feature; it is a major part of our image. The first that meets the eye! It is part of our interaction with the outside world. Its glow, its tone, its color, its evenness, its smoothness, its …. They all can have a huge impact on our self-esteem and confidence.
But there is another aspect to skin that needs a blog by itself, the sensory aspect. The sensory nerves in our skin along with our olfactory nerves receive stimulation from outside and transfer the signal to our emotional brain. The brain processes it and labels it as a pleasurable experience or the other way around. One aspect of skin care products, that is just as important as the other beneficial aspects mentioned, is how it makes us feel! It can simply elevate our day. That is why self-care is so important for each and every one of us.
Imagine that …
You wake up in the morning. After a splash of water, you start your routine by applying a toner. The feel of the toner on your skin is refreshing, hydrating, with an amazing aroma of natural herbs that makes you feel like you are walking in a blooming garden. Yes, that is why we call our natural toner Bloom. No pun intended!
Next comes Pétale. A light silky touch like an orchid petal brushing on your skin, making your mind feel that you are nothing less than a precious, delicate petal of flower.
Then comes the moisturizer, gaining warmth between the fingertips, gliding smoothly over the skin with a lush sensation. Not to mention the intoxicating scent of Jasmine. This romantic flower sets the stage for the rest of the day.
No wonder those of us that are hooked are always in search of adding more to our luxurious skincare routine! Celebrate and enjoy this aspect of your skin and elevate your day with some exceptional sensory and olfactory experiences of your natural skin and hair care routine!
