Moon Days: Lunar Beauty

I really try to follow the Moon phases for my beauty routine. The Moon really affects our bodies through each of the different phases, so take note how She affects you. I hate to generalize, as everyone is different, but try this out for month and see how it works for you! I would love to know!

New Moon: This is a great time to start a detox or new diet or lifestyle change. The sun and moon energies are aligned and the New Moon marks new beginnings. It will be easier and your body will respond more. Get out your dandelion tincture and start adding it to your tea!

Waxing Moon: Our bodies absorb the best during this time, so drink lots of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, and apply the lotions and potions for maximum efficiency. Want your hair to grow faster? Cut it during the Waxing moon to stimulate more hair growth. Also, I try to incorporate more movement and exercise during this energy of growing movement.

Full Moon: The Full Moon is the peak of the cycle, so this is the best time to have a facial, and applying face masks for extra potency. Be careful though, it is also said pain is heightened during this time and we are more likely to bleed more, so do not opt for surgery or painful beauty treatments.

Waning Moon: Purifying and detoxing treatments are best during this phase. Whip out your bath salts, get in a sauna, do some hot yoga, and create your own facial steams right now. Dye your hair during this time too, as it should last longer. And since hair growth is slower, pluck your eyebrows and get any waxing treatments done now too. You are less likely to bleed as much.

Astrology signs play a role too! Water signs < Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer> help absorption; Fire signs < Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries > are better for purifying; Earth signs < Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn > nourish; and Air < Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius > are more stimulating. Keep these in mind!

I hope these little beauty tips help! Luna is always a great guide :)

Love and Blessings,

  1. This reminded me I had a book about Lunar regimes and what to do when, unfortunately it seems to have been lost in transit but this is a great reminder. Thanks for sharing it.
