The Wellness Beauty Connection
We often hear about the wellness/beauty connection. But what does that really mean? What is Beauty? What is Wellness? And is it different for everyone? What treatments can you do to increase your natural beauty?
We live at a unique time where beauty, health and wellness are rapidly converging in meaningful ways. The understanding that beauty is more than just “skin deep” is seeping into the global consciousness – a deep realization we can only be our most beautiful selves when we are in our most healthy state – physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, professionally and spiritually.
So what does wellness mean? And how does that relate to beauty? When we are taking care of ourselves on different levels, this visibly translates to our external state. When we are under extreme amounts of stress, our bodies and immune systems don’t function at their optimal states. Our skin lacks oxygen, our cortisol levels rise, and our bodies produce an inflammation response. Acne, rosacea, puffiness, sallow skin, bloating, fatigue and other inflammatory actions set in, and our health declines.
Beauty regimens and treatments that make us feel more relaxed, rested, connected and more in touch with our highest selves contribute to overall beauty & wellness. What treatments provide these benefits? Facials help to promote relaxation and skin health. Reiki Facials work on an energetic level to heal various ailments occurring in our energetic field. PRP facial works with our body’s own healing response to repair various skin ailments that keep our skin from functioning at its highest abilities.
Let’s discuss PRP in further detail and how that relates to beauty anti-aging and wellness.
You can embrace the aging process gracefully and still have a healthy and youthful-looking appearance. To do this, you don’t have to look further than your own body for a natural fountain of youth. You have inside of you the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of your body. Stem cells do this for you every day of your life. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation is a leading-edge procedure that harnesses the healing power of platelets and growth factors from your blood to stimulate a stem cell response. These stem cells help you to grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging.
Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of Cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual.
Does your beauty regimen help you to feel more powerful, more confident, more at home in your skin? Or does it hide something? Does it mask something? Is it keeping you limited to how others perceive you? Is your inherent worth spelled out by your connection to life around you, or is it spelled out by others opinions and reaction to you? I think it’s incredibly important to ask ourselves these questions, and to remain very open to the answers that arise. If in fact, we can answer that these beauty rituals are empowering us, then they contribute to an overall state of health. If they are, in fact, keeping our power hidden, then we will feel this in all areas of our life.
What is your belief about beauty? What we believe ultimately impacts what we decide. What we decide determines our outcomes in life. Sometimes we live life hiding behind “beauty” trying to cover something up, trying to be something different as opposed to examining our belief system and choosing confidence, and acceptance of who we are in order to live our best lives. I challenge you today to connect to your real beauty. To find the highest expression of yourself. Find what makes you feel most alive, most aligned and most empowered. You will not find these answers anywhere else, than at your very core.
