🌜The moon is waning, about to start moving through the showstopping Lion’s sign…🌛 But it’s Virgo Season – a time to be helpful, to assist others, to think selflessly… ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ It can be mighty confusing, understanding the difference between letting our light shine and being caught up in our ‘selves’, in ego. ✨ Sometimes we must dim our specialness, so as not to disturb others or feed the green-eyed monsters! ✨ We’re forced to play small, so others can feel big, but in the end neither person wins. ✨ Over the next couple of days own your talents and feel at one with a sense of pride – moon in Leo urges you to get in the game and dazzle like the star that you are. ✨ Then, as the moon moves into Virgo – for the new moon this weekend – it will be time to analyse, to consider, to contemplate worth. ✨ How best can we use our special gifts to be of service and help others? ✨ From Leo’s lair to Virgo’s realms…….. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #twinkletwinkle #mooninleo #moongoddess #dita #shinelikeastar #moon #crescentmoon #leomoon #goddess #virgoseason #waningmoon #mooncycle #moonphases #burlesque #moonlight #starlight
Just like the moon, our skin does its best work at night.
There’s so much going on behind-the-scenes while we sleep; the body enters into “regeneration mode” to repair and protect itself on a cellular level. And since the skin is the body’s largest organ, a lot of this regeneration work affects the skin cells.
I always have trouble falling asleep when the moon is waxing or full (anyone else?), but a few weeks ago, I started experiencing some major insomnia. I would wake up multiple times during the night, not be able to get back to sleep, and eventually, reluctantly roll out of bed at 5:00 am to start my day.
As a skincare junkie, I knew this was wreaking havoc on my skin–and I could see it, too.

Lunya Sleep Mask Review
I ordered their Washable Silk Sleep Mask in the shade Eclipse (of course) for a few reasons.
One, it’s big enough block out any and all light.
Two, it’s fluffy enough to be seriously comfortable.
Three, it’s made of silk, a naturally hydrating material that keeps moisture close to the skin. Kind of like a wearable silk pillowcase.
Lunya’s Sleep Mask is designed to help you “find total darkness”– which is not as scary as it sounds! Since I’m a light sleeper, the fact that this mask blocks out light without being too tight or irritating is a huge help.
It makes it that much easier to drift off into sleep, allowing my skin to produce more collagen (AKA, less wrinkles) and lowering my stress-inducing cortisol levels (less stress, less skin issues).
The Washable Silk Sleep Mask has become one of my nightly must-haves. I love the feeling of soft silk against my skin, and I really do think it’s improved the quality of my sleep (at least, until the next full moon).
Buy yours here to say bye-bye to puffy eyes and dark circles.
