Springtime is when we think renewal.  It’s when we clear away the last of winter’s vestiges and prepare for the new.  Our bodies, like the earth, spontaneously begin to cleanse whether or not we encourage it with a spring detoxifying program. Think the purifying March winds and April Showers.  More than the usual number of our customers report their skin blemishing this time of year.  Part of the spring ritual at JoiaBeauty!  After all, the skin is the largest organ of elimination.

And, into this freshly cleansed and prepared “soil” we plant our new intentions and practices.  Without the cleansing process the remnants Of our old habits inhibit the new from taking hold as robustly.  This cycle of letting go of what no longer serves us and embracing the new is as basic as our inhale and exhale. It is replicated in our morning and evening skin care ritual, in the succession of the seasons.  When we plant the new seeds, habits & rituals in the spring we are linking ourselves to the natural momentum of the life cycle and are strengthened by this connection.   What new and renewing practice do you want to plant?
