Bestow rituals are beautiful habits that support your health and wellness over your lifetime.
Bestow Beauty is a range of skin super-foods, but it is much more than that. It is a philosophy and holistic approach for total skin and body well-being. We promote wellness in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of people’s lives.
Bestow Beauty exists in the space where skincare meets self-care.
If your life is harried and stressed and characterised by negative mental patterns, you are unlikely to make the empowering choices that lead to health and wellness.
On the other hand, we notice that the women who take time to build healthy habits into their life enjoy greater health and more beautiful skin over the decades. This is why we embrace the power of rituals at Bestow. Rituals are beautiful habits that support your health and wellness over your lifetime.
Bestow super-food rituals
A daily smoothie boosted with your chosen Bestow super foods is a ritual that makes a real different to your skin over time. But there are many ways to incorporate Bestow products into daily food rituals.
Check out our ‘Five Ways’ video series and find a super-food ritual that works for you.
Bestow self-care rituals
Women often take wonderful care of everyone except themselves. This is why we encourage clients to embrace these three self-care rituals. They create moments of pause when you can tend to your own wellbeing.
TIME FOR TEA | TIME FOR ME RITUAL
Take time for you
Put the kettle on. Select a beautiful tea-cup to enjoy your tea in. Steep your chosen Bestow Organic Tea in boiling water. While you wait for your tea to steep, take 5 slow, deep breaths.
Put your hands on your belly and feel your belly rise and fall as you breathe all the way down. Sit quietly and sip your tea slowly, savouring this moment of blissful pause.
Go onwards with grace and gratitude.
NOURISHING FACIAL OIL RITUAL
Take time for you
Partially fill your hand basin with warm water. Immerse your Bestow Soaking Cloth, wring out excess water and press the damp cloth to your face. Take five slow, deep breaths. Repeat to ensure your skin is fully hydrated.
Apply any toners, mists or serums that you desire. Lock in all that precious moisture by using the tips of your fingers to gently massage 1-2 drops of Bestow Nourishing Facial Oil into your still damp skin. Go into your day or evening with grace and gratitude.
DRY BRUSHING RITUAL
Take time for you
Dry brushing your skin each day is a wonderful way to encourage detoxification and to promote soft, smooth skin. The Bestow Body Brush has a wooden handle and the bristles are made from natural, plant-based fibres.
Before showering or bathing, brush your skin for five to ten minutes using the Bestow Body Brush. Begin at your feet and move upwards until you have brushed your whole body. Brush towards your heart with a light pressure until your skin has a slightly pink, healthy glow.
Bestow soul-care rituals
We advocate soul-care in the form of cultivating a daily gratitude practice. Looking for the good, the lovely and the silver-linings in life creates an inner environment that nurtures physical health and wellness. A practice of gratitude helps to move your body into the parasympathetic nervous system mode which is all about healing, rest, repair and restoration.
BESTOW BLESSINGS JOURNAL
The Bestow Blessings Journal is a beautifully designed journal with inspiring quotes and blank pages on which you can record the things that you are grateful for each day.
- Gratitude is the art of paying attention to the many blessings that are bestowed upon us daily.
- Gratitude directs our entire being towards health. It is not going too far to say that our bodies listen to our thoughts. Paying attention to the simple things in our life boosts our immune system and promotes health and healing.
- Gratitude makes us emotionally resilient and mentally supple, better able to deal with the challenges of life.
- Gratitude is not a shallow happiness. It is a simple re-orientation that allows us to face fully into both the joy and sorrow of life, whilst becoming increasingly aware of the inherent goodness and love at the heart of the universe.
We invite you to become aware of the many gifts that surround you. Begin a daily ritual of remembering and recording your blessings in the Bestow Blessings Journal.
