Recently we wrote about the Slow Beauty Movement, where beauty, health, and wellness intersect. Pioneered by Shel Pink, founder of SpaRitual, a Certified Organic, vegan, cruelty-free beauty brand, one of Slow Beauty’s characteristics is its practice of rituals. Pink believes that morning rituals set a positive pace for the day. As we conclude Earth Month, we share one of these rituals from SpaRitual.
The Morning Hand Ritual begins with SpaRitual’s limited-edition, Spring 2017 Passionfruit Agave Vegan Nourishing Sugar Scrub. Infused with a mix of nourishing ingredients, including blue agave, goji berry extract, and pomegranate extract, the lightly- scented, antioxidant-rich, formula repairs and protects the skin from free radicals, as it soothes and slows the effects of aging. Recommended twice weekly, the ritual begins with a generous amount of Sugar Scrub to the hands. Raising the product to the face, deeply breathe in the all-natural passionfruit agave aromatic extract blend, while closing the eyes. Exhale slowly. Exfoliate the hands, concentrating in between the fingers and on the knuckles, and raise the elbows for a deep stretch. Finally, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and then apply moisturizer.
