Greetings and Happy New Year!
To begin the year off, I’m working with the theme of Body, Mind, Spirit for 2008. I'm doing this as a result of life actually is wholistic (my distinctive spelling); it’s composed of the entire of who we’re: physique, thoughts, spirit. And the similar is true (actually!) For wholesome pores and skin.
Without wholesome way of life habits (that are managed by your thoughts), spirit or nature in your life (to feed your soul), and naturally wholesome skincare habits (physique), you’ll probably not take pleasure in wholesome pores and skin … or not for lengthy.
Do you’ve got a PLAN for your pores and skin in 2008? How about attempting to sort out simply ONE factor. And one in every of the most necessary issues you are able to do to enhance your pores and skin, now and thru the year, is to EXFOLIATE!
Exfoliation is solely eradicating useless pores and skin from the floor of your face, and this may be carried out a number of alternative ways:
1. Using Yonka-Paris' great Gommage (303 or 305). This is my FAVORITE exfoliator, and one I like to recommend utilizing at the very least a couple of times per week.
2. A facial scrub is a standard option to exfoliate. Less efficient than the gommage, it would nonetheless eliminate a layer or two of useless pores and skin. Use it in the bathe to keep away from an excessive amount of mess.
three. My least favourite, though very talked-about, are AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) merchandise. My concern is they’ll trigger redness in the pores and skin.However they do take away useless cells with out having to do rather more than apply the product.
No matter what you select to make use of, exfoliate extra usually! This will assist with the hydration and texture of your pores and skin all year spherical!
Starting new way of life habits is synonymous with January 1st of any year. No matter when you find yourself beginning or ending habits, I like to recommend going SLOWL Y. Why? Neither deprivation nor overdoing it really works, traditionally. Is not that true for you?
If you aren’t ingesting sufficient water, for occasion, don’t go for eight glasses day-after-day at the begin. Try doubling what you’re doing to begin with- and even even much less. If you’re ingesting two glasses of water a day, attempt to get in 4. If you drink 4, strive for six.
Sometimes you’ll be able to graduate to the ranges you need in your day by day life … whether or not including or subtracting habits. Going slowly will give your physique time to regulate to the (wholesome) change. And your thoughts is not going to really feel prefer it's having to make drastic adjustments when you're making new decisions.
Spending time outside, in nature, is a vital element to wholesome physique, thoughts AND spirit.
The primary cause I moved to Boulder this previous September was to be near the mountains … near nature. Truly, "nature" is all over the place. So you should not have to stay in the mountains and go mountaineering day-after-day to take pleasure in being outdoors.
Being outside …. out of the confines of the workplace, house, or wherever inside, is as necessary to your well being as being inside shielded from harsh environments. You should not have to train out in a snow storm, however do attempt to get out and luxuriate in the nice outside … even in climate that isn’t picture excellent.
If you should not have numerous time, attempt to get outdoors for even 5 or 10 minutes. The extra recent air you will get, the higher, and … one thing is best than nothing.
Are you sensing a theme right here? Selecting only one factor to vary at a time, altering slowly to make sure a behavior of success, and do one thing relatively than nothing, even when it’s not as a lot as you'd love to do.
Taking smaller steps could also be a greater approach for you to reach making the adjustments you’re looking for in 2008.
Wishing you ALL THE BEST IN 2008! May happiness, well being, knowledge, and many love observe you thru the new year and past!
wholesome pores and skin … for a lifetime
