Let’s examine the link between qi and skin health!
Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine and traditions, qi is a belief that’s still held to this day. Qi can be most easily defined as life force energy that exists all around us.
Qi is abundantly found in nature and within medicinal plants. It remains one of the most powerful, yet mysterious concepts of traditional Chinese medicine.
Qi can be used to assist in rising from a low vibrational state (fear, jealousy, anger) which can lead to an attraction of high vibrational energy (love, abundance, compassion).
Being mindful of qi, or energy states, can help us to better align with our true selves and heal past trauma.
What does qi have to do with skincare?
Qi is tied to skincare as our skin is our largest organ in our body. Being in a low vibrational state can cause our skin to suffer over time.
Stress, sleepless nights, and anxiety can irritate or dull our skin’s radiant shine over time.
In a high vibrational state, our skin responds by appearing more healthy.
Living a life full of joy, peace, and love can impact how we appear on the outside too.
When we’re in a high vibrational state, our qi is in sacred balance.
This is a time when we simply look and feel our best and become magnetic!
Ultimately, our skin is a reflection of our inner being. It reflects who we are not only physically but also spiritually inside of ourselves.
How can I start to embody a high vibrational state?
While we may understand the importance of achieving a balanced qi, it can be more challenging than it sounds.
Incorporating self-care practices in addition to effective products can be a great way to shift your energy to a high vibrational state.
Here are a few ways you can balance your qi or life force energy:
Take time to find what helps you feel restored, rejuvenated, at peace, and balanced.
For some, a stroll in nature may be a great self-care practice that brings peace. For others, taking the time to reach out to a loved one may be a way to feel loved.
- Sleep: Adequate sleep is a great way to recharge after an exhausting day. Don’t take sleep lightly in your journey to balance your qi energy.
- Movement: Moving your body (especially in nature) is a great way to work to find peace and work toward a high vibrational state.
Listen to your body as you perform your exercise or movement through the day and make sure that you’re breathing properly as you do!
- Energy Work or Practices: Research or try some traditional energy work or energy practices to help move toward a higher vibrational being. This includes practices like qi gong, tai chi, reiki, and yoga.
Focusing on your breathwork during these energy practices is a major key to transitioning to a higher vibrational state.
- Gua Sha Facial Massage: Using the right gua sha tool for your energy type, a facial massage is a great way to restore qi energy balance.
