IN MY SKIN
Wherever I go there I am. This I know for sure. Taking great care of my skin is an intentional part of my beauty regime. And often like the best things in life its simple. I want to feel great all the time and that starts with having healthy skin. My friends here are my 3 Holy Grail skin regimes. I hope this gets you excited to be comfortable in your own skin. And speaking of being comfortable in your own skin, there is nothing more important than the dialogue you are having with yourself. I share with you how I am rethinking what I am thinking ... keep on reading.
Drink 8 glasses of water a day! Who has the time? Can it really be that important? I never thought drinking water was necessary until about two years ago when I made a commitment to get in as much water as possible in a day. Instead of reaching for that soft drink, I started to grab a bottle of water. Now I am up to drinking about 1/2 a gallon of water every day. My skin soaks it up. Immediately I feel refreshed. My cravings for that oh-so-good junk food isn't really there anymore. My makeup goes on flawlessly because my skin has no blemishes. Drinking 1/2 a gallon of water each day has really changed the radiance of my skin.
"If it ain't broke don't fix it". Uh huh. I have been using this body soap since forever ever ever and ever. For me nothing feels as good first thing in the morning or late at night then this fresh and unscented Dove bar soap scrubbing away everything that has found its way onto my skin. I love its simplicity. That it doesn't irritate my skin. That it doesn't leave my skin dry but naturally moist. I love its no smell smell. I love that after each shower all I feel is me.
This is my go to. I have been using this specific NIVEA since my roomie at the model apartment in Cape Town told me it was the best thing ever. I often get compliments that my skin glows and this really is a key behind it. It is SO HYDRATING yet doesn't leave your skin greesy to touch. I love that its scent isn't overpowering. It gives me moisture that lasts all day.
My intention is to live life. Really live. To exist in the reality of all that I am. This a life long, moment my moment commitment. And I am choosing to have fun with it. There is no pressure. Life has a way of taking care of anyone willing to say yes to its invitation. Some moments I feel on track and some moments not so much. Thats okay. Intention will create the right path for me.
Mornings with Deepak are nice. I find that everything I wish to build will only blossom if I am planting on fertile ground. Its nice to be nice. Its nicer to be nice to me. My wish for you is that you do the same. If you are open to it here is it on amazon. I downloaded it on my phone through the app store so often when I am roaming the streets of NYC its with Deepak.
My mind is always hungry. And right now she is indulging in Richard Carlson's "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ... and its all small stuff". It is an easy read. Its wisdom at its best simple and uncomplicated. A book of short 100 lessons. Today I am chewing on LIFE ISN'T AN EMERGENCY. I am learning that I need to work with the flow of life; allow her the room to create the things I ask for and having the courage to receive them. I hope this book is as much of a gift to you as it is to me.
