This Is How A Yoga Teacher Integrates Mindfulness Into Her Beauty Routine

“It’s about surrendering to the need of that moment.”

“Beauty and wellness to me is more about how I feel,” describes Gabriella Woodward, who, as a yoga teacher and the founder of Infinite Yoga, knows a thing or two about mindfulness. “If my spirit feels open; I know my body and mind are healthy. Trusting and honouring my spirit is what’s important to me.”

Woodward is a wealth of knowledge about connecting with one’s spirit and listening to the push and pull of the inner voice. “The practice of yoga for me includes asana, pranayama and meditation and, I have to say, what I love most would be that I am able to incorporate all three and align my practice to what my spirit needs each time I practice.”

“Some days are slow, some days are strong and it’s about surrendering to the need of that moment.”

It’s a mantra Woodward carries into her beauty routine too. A long-time fan of French luxury skincare brand, L’Occitane, Woodward recently discovered the brand’s cult serum, the Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum, which allows her skin to rest and reset when needed. “I have used L’Occitane hand cream along with their bath and body products in my home for many years, so to start using their skincare, in particular, the Immortelle Reset Serum, was really intriguing for me.”

Listening to her body and her skin, she started by applying the L’Occitane Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum only every second evening. “I started to introduce the serum every couple of days into my nighttime routine.” Letting her complexion guide her, she soon began using the serum nightly. “I decided to increase the frequency to daily use, due to the noticeable difference on my skin with fine lines, hydration and brightness within a week of starting.”

It’s no wonder L’Occitane sells an Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum every minute worldwide—and now, three years after the serum’s initial conception, it’s being relaunched with a new and more powerful formulation. The new formula includes organic Immortelle Essential Oil, sustainably sourced and now 10 times more powerful than previously. It’s nature at its most powerful: this serum is packed full of natural-origin actives to soothe and restore the skin. The Immortelle Essential Oil is a powerful and natural antioxidant, which is combined with Marjoram extract and Acmella Oleracea extract to smooth the skin and leave it glowing.

Suitable for all skin types, the Immortelle Reset Serum is designed to be applied to freshly cleansed skin and gently massaged in, which is how Woodward applies it each evening. In a moment of serenity and mindfulness, she applies the serum before retiring to her bedroom to rest her body and her mind. The results? “I feel hydrated and I’ve noticed my skin is visibly brighter,” attests Woodward.

L’Occitane’s Immortelle Reset Serum proves that nothing resets like nature, which is exactly where Woodward is most in her element: meditating in nature. “Meditation surrounded by bush overlooking the ocean near my home is my ideal reset in nature as I can dive deep into my senses and really experience the “unwinding” effect,” she says.

After all, for many of us, looking after our skin is part of the ritual of resetting and restoring for the day’s ahead.
