What Happens When Life Isn’t Fair?

            It feels like we're falling down the proverbial "rabbit hole", getting lost in dark feelings that keep us from living a life filled with gratitude and love.       It's a question we all ask ourselves at one time or another in life...

31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge – Day 23

    Day 23   "Commit To Clean Eating For 14 Days"           It's no secret to anyone what it takes to make wise food choices  and what it means to our overall health.  Many times if feels daunting though to truly educate ourselves  in creative ways of making tasty meals that everyone likes.    I've been on a clean eating journey for many years and I still have so much more to learn. What actually started my food overhaul was watching my older sister live with RA. This debilitating  disease  has taken most of the joy out of her life.  She has been bedridden for over 8 years and depends on others for her basic needs in life.  When I started to notice career related stiffness in a few joints...

31 Day Skin Care Re- Boot Challenge – Day 22

  Day 22   "Get 7-8 Hours  Of Sleep A Night For 7 Days"                 Depriving yourself of the sleep you need effects your skin in ways you might not think. "Poor sleep can lead to increased stress hormones (cortisol) in the body that increase the severity of inflammatory skin conditions such as acne or psoriasis," says Jessica Krant, MD, assistant clinical professor or dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and  founder of Art of Dermatology in New York.   Chronic  insomnia  can make someone look decades older due to stress induced changes in facial tissue. Increased symptoms of insomnia disrupt sleep and create a vicious cycle with skin  conditions.                 Not getting enough sleep, here's how it effects you :   Worsens existing skin conditions- increases  inflammatory  responses in the skin A...

31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge Day 20

  Day 20     Commit To Removing Your Make Up Each Night       Who hasn't done it, late night out having to much fun or just plain exhausted from working and taking care of the family. Going to bed with make up on, is it really that bad?  How bad could it be?           Having been involved with skin care for over 30 years I have talked to many women who go to bed without removing their make up almost every night, some with only minimal side effects, but for others the side effects are undeniably taking a toll. After years of  hands on experience and ongoing education , I know there are definitely side effects of routinely sleeping with a face full of make up and environmental pollution.         Judge for...

31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge Day 18

    DAY 18 Oil Pulling- Ancient Detoxifying  Ritual in a Modern World         The first  time I heard of "Oil Pulling" I was intrigued, I had a vague idea of what Oil Pulling was from books that I  read about Ayurvedic remedies.  Oil Pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic ritual that was introduced to the modern world in 1992  by Dr. F. Karach MD. Oil pulling has many health benefits. I have to admit I don't do it as much as I should, my hope is that writing this post  will put my "rear" in gear to make it a habit. It's not a magic bullet, just as any therapy, alternative or mainstream isn't. I have talked to many friends who do it on a daily basis and swear...
