Have you heard the expression, Old ways won't open new doors? As we prepare to enter a new month, and the third quarter of the year, it's a wonderful time to reflect on which old ways we can move on from, and which new doors we'd love to open in the coming weeks, months, or years. 

Making plans (and taking action on those plans) to change your habits and thought patterns may sound daunting, but as with all things, small steps often amount to big shifts. This month's Skincare Blühprint builds on last month's focus on trusting your intuition, and is intended to help you shift from old ways that aren't serving you, to something better! Trusting that you know yourself best, think about what you'd like to do, think, or see differently. And then start moving through those new doors, one step at a time.

A few new doors you may want to open:

  • Learn a new skill, or deepen your knowledge in a particular area: There is no age limit on being a students! Take an online class, visit a local museum, or listen to podcasts or TED Talks that appeal to you. Don't overlook learning opportunities available at your local public libraries and community centers!
  • Meditate: Believe it or not, meditating regularly -- even for just a few minutes a day-- can help you develop new thought patterns (and if you're looking for a new skill to learn, put meditation on the list!). It's the perfect tool for getting "unstuck."
  • Take up coloring: Yes, as in coloring books! There's a reason we all loved doing this as children. It's a low-stakes, low-energy creative habit (there's truly no wrong way to color) that may prompt you to take up other artistic pursuits.
  • Bake for friends and neighbors: Experimenting with new recipes is a fantastic way to shake up your life, and menu! Sharing with loved ones only sweetens the deal. 
If you're of a certain age, you may have grown up thinking oil was the enemy In skincare. Certainly oil would make your skin more oily, right? Our May Skincare Blühprint features three oil-forward products that will have you rethinking those old myths, if you aren't already! Oils can work with your skin type to revive, replenish, and nourish. The oils in our formulations gently and deeply penetrate the skin to deliver all the benefits of our carefully curated Bioactives, and are easily incorporated into your current skincare ritual. 
  • Nourish and balance with our award-winning Cleansing Oil. Our formula is crafted with a nourishing blend of organic oils and active botanicals that melt away makeup and the daily build-up of impurities. Gentle but deeply clarifying actives decongest pores while restoring your skin’s natural balance, resulting in a clear, radiant complexion.
  • Firm and repair with our award-winning Antioxidant Face Oil. Indulge your skin in the ultimate youth reboot with an infusion of this potent cocktail of essential fatty acids and protective antioxidants.18 nutrient dense oils including wild harvested Australian Kakadu plum and Snowflower rapidly absorb to help repair, activate cell regeneration and restore optimal hydration to the lipid barrier. Your skin is left plump, firm and luminous. 
  • Soothe and nourish with our award-winning Active Relief Body Oil. This potent treatment oil integrates cell nourishing fatty acids, phytoceramides and powerful antioxidants with herbs used in plant medicine for centuries. Methodically formulated to boost hydration, improve skin tone and bring soothing relief to overworked muscles.

I can't wait to hear about the new doors you'll be walking through soon! As always, I am so grateful that you are part of this community.
