Make 2014 Your Healthiest Year Ever
Not to worry, Scents of Serenity Organic Spa can help you get a jump start on making 2014 your healthiest year ever! There is no time like the present to establish new positive habits, and here is a quick guide to start:
- Reduce Stress: Easier said than done! Stress is dangerous on many levels, both physically and emotionally. High levels of stress can impact your circulatory system, which can elevate risk for heart attack and high blood pressure. Regular massage therapy is a natural way to relieve stress. When you experience stress, your body increases its production of certain hormones, such as cortisol, which left unchecked, can lead to inflammation, further impacting your body. Massage therapy increases oxygen flow throughout your body, helping flush hormones and inflammation from impacted areas.
- Detox: You have most likely heard a lot about detoxes, and have even planned to do one, but when the time comes, you have not mentally or physically prepared for a detox, and end up postponing it indefinitely. Here at Scents of Serenity, we offer doTERRA certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils, and incorporating essential oils into your daily life is a simple way to begin the detox process with small simple steps. The easiest way to drink doTERRA citrus oils in your water every day. Lemon is very good for detoxifying your cells, cleaning cells from the inside out. Grapefruit is great for kidney cleansing as well as an appetite suppressant. Add additional oils, such as Cilantro, to increase the cleansing benefits. Cilantro is great for cleansing heavy metals from your system. doTERRA Essential Oils are very powerful oils, so before you begin any cleansing program, please consult your healthcare professional first. Like anything you eat, drink, or apply to your skin, it is important to know the purity, so come by the spa with any questions about using doTERRA.
- SPF: It can’t be stressed enough how important SPF is for your skin year round, not just in the summer. A great face moisturizer is Eminence Organics Red Currant Protective Moisturizer with SPF 30. Eminence is the world’s #1 organic skincare line, and the Red Currant line is overflowing with protective anti-oxidants that will nourish your skin while it moisturizes. Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen has an SPF of 32, which is the perfect SPF, anymore is unnecessary.
- A facial: Your skin faces environmental stresses, from heat and humidity to windy and cold, every day, and your face takes the brunt of it all. A facial from one of our Master Estheticians will not only provide a thorough cleaning, masquing, and moisturizing, but facial massage techniques will encourage new collagen production tightening the skin and reducing dark circle, as well as reduce inflammation eliminating puffiness. All of our Organic Facials incorporate Eminence Organics, so your skin will receive a boost of anti-oxidants and nourishment every time you come in!
