What are the derma rollers!? 

The Chinese derma rollers made of jade – or other gemstones like rose quartz are basically a stone roller (same principle as a paint roller) but small and with a gemstone. This product has taken the beauty market by a storm.And there’s must be a reason why influencers all over the world are recommending the use of these devices and massaging your face. But how do they work!? And, do they really work!?

The science behind…

Dermatologist Melissa Kannchanapoomi mentioned in Marie Claire’s interview says: “Jade facial rollers have been used to massage the skin since the 17th century in China, jade rolling can increase blood circulation, which, in turn, can temporarily give you a brighter flush”. Other dermatologists on the same interview also mentioned that they are not a magic wand, that rollers will not get rid of skin conditions….however they do acknowledge that “rolling a cold stone on your face can be relaxing, which, in turn, can indirectly improve stress-linked skin conditions, such as rosacea and acne.”  But don’t get discouraged, even though they don’t do magic… in the end, it’s all about how it makes you feel. We believe this could be a great tool for the day before the wedding, a nice and relaxing facial massage would do miracles for your skin.

The mystical Cenotes of the Riviera Maya- a great place to begin your married life!

The beautiful Turquoise Ocean and white sand beaches make the perfect venue for a wedding, but we shouldn’t forget the Mayan jungle and its mysterious Cenotes.

The word Cenote comes from the mayan “tz-onot” which basically means water hole or abysm . Cenotes were very important for the Mayans, because it was their main fresh water source. Mayans also believed that Cenotes were the “passage” or connection with the “underworld” .

Cenotes were also important ceremonial sites, Mayans believed that Chaak the good of water inhabited those sites. Mayans would bring offerings to ask the god for rain during drought periods.

No wonder why Cenotes are so powerful, so much mystery and magic. When you swim in a Cenote you definitely feel this spiritual connection, with life , water, and we even dare to say that you will feel renewed spiritually, mentally and physically.

Cenotes are becoming more and more popular amongst the Riviera Maya brides, some brides are moving the ceremony from the beach – to a cenote ceremony with a Xaman!! , more and more brides are taking the plunge and doing TTD (trash the dress ) shootings at the Cenotes.

After the wedding day, what better way than going to a Cenote for a dip to capture the beginning of this new life chapter – the beginning  of married life and the end of being single. Let Chaak the god of water guide your new path and bless the marriage to be a very fruitful and prosperous one, lust like the Mayan jungle!
