Fragrances:
invisible and yet so powerful. Our everyday life is full of scents that accompany us throughout the day, and that have the ability to subconsciously influence our mood or trigger emotions. Starting the day with a pleasant smell in your nose may therefore not only indulge the senses, but also set the mood for the day. So why not take over the reins of your emotions and boost your spirits by consciously integrating the power of fragrances to your life? 

An easy and effective way to do so is diving into the world of cosmetics, as they make us feel comfortable in our skin by cleansing, moisturising, peeling and beautifying it. Besides from the clothes we wear, our favourite beauty products may further act as an invisible veil covering our skin and senses. Hence, one may have a closer sniff at the large choice of nicely-scented creams, lotions, soaps and perfumes out there. 

Of course, choosing personal care products simply by the way they appeal to one’s nose should not be the decisive factor when it comes to finding the appropriate skin care for one’s skin type. But if we like what we smell, our skincare routine can easily turn into a daily wellbeing treatment.

Natural fragrances like citrus, lavender or vanilla are especially effective for activating our sense of well-being. So next time you feel tired, stressed or uneasy, you might want to give these scents a try:

  • Citrus scents: The scent of fresh oranges, lemons, grapefruit or mandarins is the perfect choice for an awakening kick-start into the day.
