Spring Reset Ritual

 

Rituals help us slow down, and find happiness in the smallest of things. To welcome in spring, I’m starting with a simple ritual that’s both exfoliating & hydrating, using my dry brush and favorite ZENTS products in the scent SUN. 

 

The idea behind dry brushing is to get your lymphatic system moving, which helps improve the body’s circulation, digestion and helps get rid of toxins. By slowing down and taking time to care for the body through a simple practice like dry brushing, we help to rejuvenate the nervous system. A dry-brush routine is also great for skin exfoliation too, slough off dead skin and unclog pores. Here’s how the ritual goes…

With a dry brush, gently rub the brush in circular, upward motions, followed by longer, smoother strokes. Tip: spritz a bit of Body Oil before brushing if your skin is a bit sensitive.

Begin at the ankles and brush upward towards the heart (the lymph flows towards the heart, so it’s important that you brush in the same direction.) Move up to the lower legs, thighs, stomach, back and arms. *Be cautious of softer and sensitive skin around the chest, and never brush over inflamed skin, sores or sun-burn.

When you reach the chest and back, brush down toward the heart.

Next I use the UNZENTED body polish for a little extra exfoliation. To get the perfect polish, I apply a thick layer of Body Oil to the skin as a base and glide a small amount of the Polish over the oil, followed by a shower to rinse off dry skin cells and impurities.

[NOTE: People with open or inflamed skin, including people with eczema and psoriasis, should avoid dry brushing over the inflamed area. Avoid sensitive areas, including rashes, wounds, cuts or infections. If you have a skin condition, you should speak with your doctor before dry brushing.]

I add hydration back into the skin after showering with the ZENTS Luminous Cashmere Body Oil in the scent Sun. For extra nourishment follow it up with the ZENTS Probiotic Lotion!

Lastly, I apply the roller ball Attar on my wrist, then rub my wrists together to heat up the oils. Bringing my hands and wrists up to my nose for 3 deep breaths. This simple ritual, and skin care practice allows me to slow down, pour some time into caring for myself, and enjoy the aromas of spring. 

I hope you have an abundant spring season. ~With loving kindness, Shayda

  1. Love this! So great!

    My favorite way to use the polish is all over the body. The body polish is a thick, hydrating shea butter paste with sugar and salt infused in it. It doesn’t have that thick layer of oil on top like others that is so messy and makes you slip in the bath tub. With that said, the key for a full body polish is to pick your favorite ZENTS or UNZENTED body oil and do a thick layer on your dry skin. After this, you place a little polish over the oil and you get an incredible age defying body polish. After the polish is done, I turn on the water to the shower and rinse it all away leaving my skin baby soft and new. I always finish up with a combo of our probiotic lotion and oil combo for age defy and the concreta for my hands, feet and neck. Hope you all love it as much as i do!

  2. I love this journal entry by Shayda. Thank you for sharing. It’s nice to read how other people enjoy this lovely line of products.

    I have used Zents products for well over ten years and it is the one part of my life I can not do without. When I first began using Zents I thought of it as a treat. However, it didn’t take me long to realize using the beautiful Zents line would become a necessary and essential part of my life. I use one form or another of Zents products every single day and every two weeks I have what I call my own spa night. I start by taking a bath using a Zents bath truffle. (I alternate the fragrances and love them all!) I always feel so much better after bathing with the Zents truffles..it is the only bath product that actually does what it claims to do. When I get out of the bath I apply the polish all over my body and step in the shower. I rinse off the polish, shower using the delicious Zents bar of soap and then I apply the Sun bath wash and rinse. Once I dry off I make a little mixture with the Sun body oil and lotion and apply all over and especially target any areas that are a little achy. I finish off by adding the concreta to my feet, elbows, hands and wrists and even a little in my hair. Then I dab on the attar, put on my favourite pj’s and my spa night is complete. All there is left to do is relax (which comes pretty naturally after the products I have just used) and enjoy the serene feeling and delicious scent. I am so grateful to have found this beautiful line of products and would like to thank Zents for making my life better. I think anyone that is an avid Zents fan will understand how it’s possible to feel a line of body products can improve your life!

  3. Hi Donna! This is so unbelievably sweet of you to share, it almost deserves its own post! We love having you as a part of the ZENTS family and are so happy to hear we are a small part in your every day life making it just a bit sweeter. Thank you so much for being such a loyal fan!
