The full moon. So beautiful. So mysterious. So mesmerizing.
But have you ever wondered why we all just seem so attracted to a full moon? Well, as it turns out, it doesn’t just look lovely, there’s also a pretty interesting reason for it.
This might get a little science-y, but please bear with me.
A full moon happens only once a month. And it happens when the sunlight is fully reflected off the surface of the moon – since the moon doesn’t radiate light itself. This is the time when the moon shines its brightest and fullest. You can typically see a full moon for about three days.
So that’s the scientific aspect of it, now let’s look at its spiritual aspect.
Whether you realize it or not, we’ve all been living by the lunar cycles for a very long, long time. It’s believed that the moon represents our inner spirit and energy. And by connecting to these inner powers, we could feed a sense of grounding and synergy with the Universe. This time period represents the peak of our spirituality and energy.
As it marks the end of a lunar cycle, the full moon is the perfect time for us to cultivate and reap the results of all the efforts we’ve put out throughout the month.
This is when we get to reflect on our past efforts, recognize the positive results of our actions as well as coming to terms with what’s no longer working for us. This is the perfect time to tie up loose ends and let go of things that no longer serve our purpose.
This was also part of the inspiration behind our Fullmoon Serum – everything from cultivating the ingredients, to packaging and naming the product.
As you may have known, the powerhouse of the serum is an ingredient called moth bean extract (aka. a retinol alternative). And true to its name, this ingredient helps strengthen the skin barrier, encourage collagen synthesis, and reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. It’s truly a multitask ingredient.
But at Graydon, good things don’t come by itself. The Fullmoon Serum is also formulated with other amazing ingredients such as peptides and hyaluronic acid to soothe, smooth, and protect your skin.
It is our hope that by using this serum, you’re setting your skin up for a new, better start. And that every effort you’ve put into your skincare will come back tenfold with positivity.
We believe that skincare is self-care. And having good skin would help you feel more in tune with yourself and sense of confidence - giving you balance from both your inner and outer state.
