Your beauty regimen has the power to do more than just improve your skin. It can also replenish your spirit.

Being fully present while washing your face can bring a whole new level of power and renewal to your beauty ritual. Practice keeping your mind free of any thoughts except the pleasure of the product you are working with. Notice the fragrance of the cleanser. Close your eyes and feel the texture of the product against your skin. Imagine your cells being bathed in light. Feel all of your anxiety and stress disappear as you gently and consciously wash your face.

Next, apply a facial masque. Notice how beautiful the color is as it goes onto your skin. Imagine your cells repairing themselves and gaining strength. Feel your energy increase as you work with this product. Add water, and as the water activates the life force in the product, feel your own life force growing stronger. You are renewing yourself.

Being fully present with yourself while holding an attitude of love for your body is a powerful way to reverse the aging process. Love can truly help your body grow younger and your spirit grow stronger.
