The Right Temperature

The Right Temperature

Listening to our body is one of the kindnesses we owe ourselves. Our skin, for example, has so many things to tell us. It alone knows how to speak to us in this way.

Probably because complexion is a reflection of our soul.

The Japanese like to immerse their bodies in very hot baths, a purification rite if you will, but for the face, a delicate area for which they recommend in-between - lukewarm, the “clair-obscur''. Century-old beauty secrets tell us that water that is too hot can cause wrinkles to appear.

Start with lukewarm water and cool down gradually. By the time it feels slightly cooler, you have reached your ideal temperature. Then feel the water flow over your skin. She holds the keys to the realms of gentleness.
