The Skin We Are In

At this stage of the game, we all have some kind of skin problems whether it be brown spots, wrinkles, crows feet, blemishes or sagging skin. No amount of creams, lotions or any outside remedies can correct the problem, yes you can get a temporary fix but that only lasts for a minute.

The real fix is healing from within! If you remember my first post was about the skin. You have to heal from the inside and you will see the results on the outside. I am a firm believer in this, I love herbs because they help clean out the toxins in your body and replenish your cells so that your skin appearance improves, you will be amazed when you start seeing your skin change. Due to the damage, the sun does to the skin during the summer months the fall is a good time to repair and replenish your cells. Right now I myself am repairing and replenishing my cells. I will give you a recipe to get you started to clear your skin and help get your glow back. By getting rid of the toxins you will also realize you will shed A few pounds also.

Fall Fashion

Fall is here, Its one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is awesome, not too hot and not too cold
Living in Florida we do not really get a cold winter, but we get a chill winter as I call it.So it’s not necessary to bundle up like the northerners, but we are still able to indulge in Winter Fashion. We Floridians do get to wear white after labor day!! Florida Perks. So what would our winter gear entail? Well for starters light sweaters, jeans maybe some scarfs, boots, leather jackets. You will see a lot of Athletic Wear during the winter months here, it seems to be the Trend during the cooler months. And of course to finish your look A nice Pocketbook to Polish the Look.

Loving Life in Your 50’s

To all my Women of “Age”…Most of us are going through it….We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair, extra pounds….we see the pretty 30-year-olds and sigh….But we were once 30 too just like they will one day be our age. What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we come to the table with our wisdom, experience, and good hearts. For all we’ve been through earning each grey hair….be it raising kids, paying bills, illness and whatever else life brought us over our 50 + years….We are Survivors….we are Warriors…..we are Women…..Like a classic car….or fine wine….while our exterior may not be what it once was…it is traded for our spirit….our courage…and our survival to enter this chapter of our lives with grace and pride for all we’ve been through and accomplished.
Never feel bad about aging. It is a privilege denied to many.

Skin

So I guess you are wondering why I picked the Skin as a topic well, the skin is our outer shell and its the first place you start to notice the change, the wrinkles start appearing, crows feet start crowing, lol!! skin starts sagging, etc etc.
Many of us spend lots of money trying to correct these things in the form of lotions, cremes, vitamins, some even go as far as having surgical procedures. Yes, these can somewhat help, but if you do not correct from the inside, what you do on the outside won’t last. You have to get right from within

SKIN

The skin is the largest organ on our bodies.It measures about 20 square feet, The skin is our layer of protection against the environment, it covers our internal organs, so therefore it plays one of the most important parts of our lives.The skin is made up of 3 layers, The Epidermis which is the outermost layer, it provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. Beneath the epidermis is the Dermis which contains tough connective tissues, hair follicles, and sweat glands. The Hypodermis is the innermost layer of the skin, it is made of fat and connective tissue. It is important to take good care of our skin as it protects our bodies, Protecting your skin is not only an outside thing but you need to maintain your skin by nutrition and vitamins and of course water is most essential in keeping our bodies hydrated and helping flush toxins from our bodies. water is essential for circulating nutrients in our body. Your bodies are composed of about 60% water, which also regulates our body temperature and aids in digestion.I will delve into this more in my next article.
