Autumn calls for a skincare ritual that not only exfoliates but rejuvenates the skin and your soul. In this autumn ritual, we'll introduce you to Maison Apothecare's Magical Maison Exfoliating Mitt and the Charcoal and Sage soap bar, which play a vital role in grounding you by releasing and detoxifying your skin. Plus, we'll incorporate journal prompts and self-massage techniques to create a holistic experience for your mind and body.

Step 1: Gather Your Tools

  • Maison Apothecare Magical Maison Exfoliating Mitt
  • Maison Apothecare Charcoal and Sage soap bar or any soap of your choice
  • A comfortable and peaceful space
  • A towel
  • A journal and pen

  • Step 2: Prepare Your Mind 

    • Inhale a few deep breaths and set a positive intention for the day. 
    • Take a moment to think about what you want to let go of and what you want to invite into your life during this season.

  • Step 4: Cleanse with Charcoal and Sage Soap Bar

    • Allow your pores to open with hot water and steam by heating the shower for a few minutes before entering for the steam to begin to rise and soften the skin, or soak in the tub before applying the soap. 
    • Cleanse your skin with Maison Apothecare's Charcoal and Sage soap bar. This natural soap is infused with activated charcoal to detoxify and sage to soothe your skin. It's perfect for removing any remaining impurities and invigorating your skin.
    • Wet the Charcoal and Sage soap bar and lather it in your hands.
    • Gently apply on your body while enjoying the refreshing scent and luxurious lather.

    • The Magical Maison Exfoliating Mitt is designed to remove dead skin cells before your eyes while improving circulation, leaving your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
    • With the soap lathered on the body, gently massage your body in a circular motion, starting from your feet and moving upward.
    • Pay special attention to rough areas like elbows and knees.
    • Rinse your body thoroughly and pat dry with a soft towel.

    Step 6: Reflect and Journal

    As you continue to pamper your skin, take a moment to reflect on your autumn intentions. Write down any insights or feelings that arise during your skincare ritual. Here are some journal prompts to get you started:
