Don’t spend all your time spring cleaning your home, make sure to spring clean your body, too! After winter, we are usually feeling a little sluggish, our skin and hair are dry from the cold, we might be combating some seasonal depression, we could use a healthy dose of vitamin D and we may have been neglecting our razors. (Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us!)
Our contributor, Jenna Wohlwend, is here with some amazing treatments that will help blast away those winter blues and make you feel brand new!
LED Light Therapy
This amazing light therapy was originally discovered by NASA scientists during plant growth experiments and is now used to generate skin health. It is often a part of many top-of-the-line facials. Whether it’s for aging or acne, LED light therapy will give your complexion the boost it needs by penetrating the skin at different depths, stimulating collagen and reducing inflammation.
Dermaplaning is the best exfoliation for your face. With a small blade, an esthetician will go over your complexion removing all dead skin and hair and leaving you feeling smooth and brand-spanking new! This will brighten your skin and get off all that winter gunk that’s been piling up from makeup and dirty pillowcases that your face wash just couldn’t get!
This ancient Japanese therapy is completely unique and awe-inspiring. A Reiki master channels your energy and essentially cleanses your body. Sound a little kooky? Maybe, but people who have experienced it claim remarkable wellness benefits, like stress, anxiety and tension relief.
This ancient Indian massage mostly uses Ayurvedic oils and long strokes along the body to clear out the lymphatic system and penetrate deep into your skin for an experience that is not only stress-relieving, but healing as well.
It’s a classic feel-good treatment that will leave you feeling clean and feminine. The extra pop of color is also the perfect welcome to spring, so make sure to pick a fun, bold polish or pattern. Don’t forget to add on an extra few minutes of a massage to really get the rejuvenation you’ve been craving.
No matter what it is you choose, just make sure to prioritize your wellbeing, both physically and mentally. The winter can really take a toll on our bodies in both ways and it is important to check in with ourselves, listen to our bodies and take care of what we need for our wellness.
