Moon Days: Lunar Beauty

via
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,

Arizona Part 2: The Grand Canyon


The Grand Canyon was so so surreal. When we first got there it was so bright and sunny, the canyon looked like a painting; a vast backdrop of reds and browns. So amazing. As the day grew long, the wind picked up and clouds loomed overhead giving the canyon so much depth and shadow. Again, S.U.R.R.E.A.L. We climbed and explored for hours, and I took that little pine cone as a souvenir :) It is now on my altar.

I also had to put a picture of my handsome boyfriend up. This picture was too good to pass up. I am so blessed to be able to go on adventures with that loving soul of his.

Next time, we will go hiking in the canyon. I am so grateful for this beautiful earth we live on.

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter
