Cosmetics and well-being in harmony with the moon. For thousands of years, people have been using the moon and its cycles to help them identify the best time for certain activities. The lunar calendar is based on the moon’s orbit around the earth. Depending on which constellation this takes place in, the moon can also provide guidance on the best times for your skin care and health care routine.
When the moon is full, regenerative and relaxing activities are recommended. These include soothing baths, whole body and head massages, oil hair masks and nourishing facial masks.
When the moon is new, the body’s detoxification ability is at its highest. Therefore, you should plan deep-cleansing rituals into your beauty routine during this period, such as peeling masks, baths and body wraps. This is also the ideal moment to pay special attention to blemished, greasy skin and large pores.
The best time to start a diet is when the moon is waning. Body wraps, baths and full body peels are the ideal beauty treatments during this period. They have a more thorough deep-cleansing effect.
As the moon waxes, the absorption ability of the body and the skin increases. Therefore, during this phase you should opt for an intense programme of pampering and care with essential oil massages and masks.
