A magic trick for your skin 🌟

A magic trick for your skin 🌟
πŸ€” Most people turn to skincare in hopes that a product will eliminate the symptoms they are having with their skin. πŸ’« But here's the thing...when you eliminate a symptom without addressing what it is that is causing the symptom, what happens is this: the fundamental imbalance that created it is still imbalanced and is still creating new imbalances. πŸ’₯ Sure, you have eased the symptom you were dealing with, but what's happening beneath that is actually that you are making the problem worse. 🌈 A symptom is a signal that something is off. In order to heal, it's important to respond to signals. The only way to heal anything is to address what's causing it. Any other solution only masks problems. 🌟 I bring this up in the context of skincare because I see so many people out there looking for a product that will eliminate their symptoms, and the truth is...even if you find one it won't help you. πŸƒ So now you may wonder...what will help? πŸ’— To truly care for your skin it's about supporting a state of balance. It's nourishing, caring for, and ultimately being completely open to it. πŸ™ŒπŸ» It is the openness that allows us to hear what it really needs. When we look at our symptoms as a helpful clue we can learn so much more from them. Befriending our skin and everything it goes through is a huge step toward transformation. πŸ¦‹ I've got a little trick to share that I use in my personal regimen. It may sound silly to some of you but think about this... 🌲 If a tree out in nature is not getting enough sun, every fiber of its being will reach higher and higher and strive until it is immersed in the exact perfect about of sunlight. 🌞 That drive that pushes it higher will not cease until it is in balance. πŸ€” The same is true for our skin, our bodies, and our minds. You may not consciously be aware of an imbalance you are having, but some part of you is already fighting for it. 🀭 It's really only our minds that try to take things in a different direction. πŸ‘πŸΌThe answer is found in letting go of the part of the mind that wants to control the situation and being totally open with what your body is naturally telling you. πŸ₯° Try this: put your hand on the part of your body that is suffering, and ask openly...what do you need? Once you've asked the question, give it up. Walk away, do something else, and forget about it. Don't wonder when it will come or what it will be. Know that the answer will come. (This really works!) 🐻 I hope this leads you to greater insight and adoration for your skin. It is truly your best friend. Kelly

Sensitive Skin Tips

Sensitive Skin Tips

βœ‹πŸΌ Do you have sensitive skin?

πŸ’‘ Here’s something you gotta know…

🀏🏼 When you use an ingredient on your skin a relationship happens.

🌟 The relationship is how that ingredient interacts with your body - It’s either helpful, harmful or neutral.

😌 Our goal is, of course, to use skincare products that are helpful and form a symbiotic relationship.

🌿 To do this, it’s important to observe the impact of what we use.

πŸ₯ It’s similar with food - If we notice that every time we eat bread we get brain-fog, we can eventually make the connection that it’s likely gluten causing this feeling so we eliminate it from our diet.

🧐 What’s important to consider is that there needs to be a way to make the connection in order for us to discover it.

🚨 Now can you imagine if you had a skin rash and when you go to ask the waiter what was in the food you just ate he lists 67 different things?

😳 It could be nearly impossible to figure out what has caused it.

🌸 Skincare works in a similar way.

πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ¦° If your skin is showing signs of trouble, it’s because there is a relationship with something that is causing trouble.

πŸ™ŒπŸ» To resolve this is a very simple matter of observing, identifying the culprit, and eliminating it.

πŸ™ƒβ€¦.Only this becomes very complicated when you use a lot of products with a lot of ingredients. (The average person puts 168 chemicals on their skin per day)

🀭 You end up with no idea of what’s causing what.

πŸ₯₯ It’s much easier to understand when you minimize the number of ingredients and products you use.

πŸ’— My greatest skincare advise is to just watch how your products impact you and make sure you only enter into good relationships.

πŸƒ If you try a new product use it consistently for at least a month. (Skin does not like it when you switch up products and routines all the time).

⚑️Anytime you do something new watch the impact. If something causes trouble eliminate it.

🌞 To be in a vibrant state is really not so complicated. It’s about symbiosis. Healthy relationships. Understanding the impact things have on each other on doing your mark to make sure they are positive.

Skin Talk...

Skin Talk...

βœ‹πŸΌ Let’s talk about skincare...

πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ¦° Our bodies are an interconnected self-maintaining system.

🌿 Every person, every animal, & every tree has its own rhythm and internal system.

🌟 So do the stars, the planets, the moon, and the clouds passing by in the sky.

🌎 There are vastly complex systems interwoven and interdependent with all of life.

🌞 Each are filled with countless functions and processes that make up the whole.

🐝 When the individual components are aligned, the system works in unison and it thrives.

πŸ₯¦ When a tree gets the right amount of water and sunlight it can grow tall and yield fruits.

🐢 When a dog gets a healthy diet, enough exercise, and play, they find balance.

πŸš— When all of the components that make up a car are functioning properly and in unison with each other, the car can drive.

🀏🏼 This is the same for our bodies & our skin.

πŸ˜‰ There is a unique system of functions and processes that govern how our skin works.

πŸ’— When that system has all the proper components that it needs to thrive, it will.

β›‘ If any of the components don’t properly support the whole, your skin will fall out of balance and troubles will appear.

πŸͺ’ To fix this is only a matter of restoring the balance.

πŸ’§When we look to nature for answers on how to do this we see that there is always a natural attempt in life to restore balance.

πŸ”₯ Notice how a forest regrows after a fire comes, or how our bodies respond to a cold, or what happens if we become obese.

😌 Life is always fighting for equilibrium.

🧐 This implies something really interesting for skincare…

🌈There is a natural attempt for life to be balanced.

😳It’s only our fighting against a perfectly cohesive system that throws something off.

🚨When something is thrown off, it’s not that there is something β€œbad” or β€œwrong” with our skin.

πŸ‘πŸΌ It’s just that we need to stop doing whatever it is that we are doing that has it all thrown off and allow life to do what it naturally needs to do to thrive.

πŸ™ƒβ€¦More on this subject later as it goes much deeper….
