Purple Power

This week with Fiorente winning the Melbourne cup it got us thinking about the colour purple and its significance. When you think Skinstitut you think purple mania, but what does the colour purple really stand for and why do some people go crazy over it? Have you ever noticed that some people dress head to toe in the colour purple and the older we get the more inclined we are to like purple (think old ladies with purple rinses and purple hats)?   Colour is a form of non-verbal communication and an important part of our daily lives. Colour evokes underlying emotions and these colour connections have been cultivated since birth and vary depending on age and gender.  Colour affects our mood and how we feel, and some research even suggests that it may have a physical effect as well by influencing the hormones that control our emotions. It is therefore no myth that purple is the colour of perfection.   According to the psychology of colour, purple is symbolic of people seeking spiritual fulfilment. It is thought that if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind – mmmn perhaps that’s why us folks at Skinstitut are so calm and laidback!   Purple has been used as a symbol of magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of warm and cool colours, red and blue, purple is believed to be the ideal colour.   Purple Trivia –

  • Purple was the favourite colour of Egypt's Cleopatra.
  • Children love the colour purple. A purple room can boost a child's imagination. Too much though, like blue, could result in moodiness.
  •  Purple is the colour most favoured by artists as it boosts creativity.
  • Thursday's colour is purple.
  • Purple is the colour of meditation and calm. Lavender oil anyone?
  • Purple represents trust and loyalty.
  • Purple is the colour of purpose.
  • Purple is associated with the Crown Chakra connecting us with the universe.

So there you have it , purple is THE colour for keeping calm, spiritual, successful , creative and motivated plus today  is Thursday, the perfect day for purple mania. Keep calm and keep purple!   MM x
