Tips to a Successful Beauty Routine

It’s the beginning of a new decade, a fresh year ahead, and a great time to commit to a facial routine that will support,  rebalance and help transform your skin to its most radiant state.

Here are my tips for success:

  1. Seek professional advice – Seek the help of an esthetician to get your skincare off on the right foot.  We specialize in skin care and can make the process easy.  Selecting the right skincare for your skin isn’t easy to do alone. At Wildflower, we offer complimentary skin care consultations – book online at www.wildflowerbeautybar.ca. There are so many products to choose from that it can be overwhelming.  Don’t waste your time or money by making the wrong choice.  An esthetician will guide you to products that are appropriate for your skin as well as provide guidance along the way.  We are also there to suggest products and home care techniques to help transform your skin to its most balanced state.  Clients often tell me they have drawerfuls of product they don’t know how to use or “what they’re for”.  Make 2020 the year of skincare sustainability by investing only in products you need and skipping the items that will live in your junk drawer.
  1. Keep it clean and green: Choose skincare items that support and help transform your skincare. When buying products, skip the ones that are full of parabens, phthalates, drying agents etc. and opt for non-toxic beauty products. We offer 2 non toxic skincare lines Laurel skin – an organic, 100% whole plant based line and Osmosis Holistic Beauty.
  1. Incorporate holistic practices and rituals that improve your skin’s vitality and glow: Include facial massage into your skincare routine such as facial gua sha and jade rolling.  Skin conditions are manifestations of internal imbalances.  Daily detox & de-puffing can be as easy as jade rolling every morning.  If it’s vitality, glow and lift you’re after, try incorporating facial gua sha. At Wildflower, we offer a tactile skincare consultation called the instant glow where we assess your skin with face mapping & perform a mini treatment with suggested skin care so you can experience the products before you bring them home.
  1. Keep it simple – Skincare takes commitment, but it doesn’t have to be burdensome. A good routine can be as simple as 3 easy steps that take 1-2 minuets of your time per day.

I believe skincare is synonymous with self-care.  You should incorporate a routine that’s beneficial, sustainable and a joy to do.

Honouring Yourself Ritual Pedicure

Historically I’ve not been one to make a New Years resolution as it felt rule bound and constrictive.  Last year I was introduced to the idea of choosing a word as a point of focus and guidance for the year.  A word to guide the year’s goals and decisions and inspire a better version of oneself.  I liked this idea instantly and have found it extremely helpful and inspiring throughout the year. 

This year I decided on the word ‘release’.  I’ve recently found myself clinging tightly to the way things are, fearing change or what may come.  I realize that doing so has caused me to over-work/over-extend myself and has slowed my personal and professional growth.  So in an effort to release stress and the habits and ideas that no longer serve me I’m going to work on releasing my grip.  I feel challenge in this word but also freedom and I look forward to how I will grow and what I can create this year. 

With the idea of resolutions and a new year ahead,  spiritual healer Amelie St Pierre of Liberate your True self  suggested the theme of honour.   I find this fitting for the beginning of a new year.  A great time to contemplate on honouring yourself & your goals paving the way for a fulfilling year ahead. 

In this month’s ritual pedicure you will find:

Scolecite and Amazonite stones to help increase frequencies of honor.

Scolecite is a good gemstone to increase the cohesion of self. It assists one in accessing the root of a problem and helps one transform trials into love. Scolecite promotes self-control and the actualization of what is preferred in one’s life.

Amazonite is a stone of self-confidence, respect and grace. It helps one take action through inspired thoughts. It balances the feminine and masculine energies, balancing doing and being.

Essential oils blend of Rosemary + Orange to uplift, energize, boost the immune system, help reduce anxiety & promote clear thinking

Lotus Wei Truth Teller flower essence blend to magnify fearless speech + authentic expression and dissolve anger + frustration 

Our Ritual Pedicures include extended massage times, a warm facial compress and lots of TLC
