Celestial Balance: This Weekend’s Spring Equinox
You don’t have to be an astronomer to take delight in Sunday’s Spring Equinox – one of only two times a year when day and night are equal in length. At an equinox, the Earth’s two hemispheres receive the sun’s rays equally.
In the Northern Hemisphere Sunday’s Equinox signals the beginning of Spring— sunrise is earlier, sunset is later, daffodils are sprouting! In the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn begins. Talk about perfect balance: twelve hours of night and twelve hours of day. Half the Earth heralds Spring, the other half, Fall.
Afraid you’ll miss it? Don’t worry! You can celebrate our favorite equilibrium-deliverer every day of the year. Our Hydrating Day & Night Cream is the moisture cream equivalent of celestial balance for your skin. Smooth it on your face in the morning (even under your makeup!) and at night before you go to bed. Use it with our Illuminating Face Serum for a well-matched, double dose of balance. Your skin will look youthfully radiant no matter what time of day it is or what hemisphere you’re in.
