Balance is Key | Skincare Struggles Pt. 3

IMG_3387

Remember in Pt. 1 of #SkincareStruggles I mentioned how your daily way of living has a huge impact on everything? And how I really wanted to adapt new lifestyle changes?

First things first, in order to stay hydrated I had to increase my H2O intake. Yes, that simple! An enjoyable and beneficial way to cleanse the body is by infusing water with fruit. There are a variety of “recipes” and fruit combinations that serve different purposes. Currently, I am loving cucumber and cucumber + pineapple water! Both have a positive effect on my skin and body since each ingredient serves as a detox.

Recently my skin had a brutal reaction to a skincare product (a one-time use but with my sensitive skin I pay the price within hours). The cucumber water is helping tremendously by clearing out redness, breakouts, and dryness. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious and refreshing it is too! My goal everyday is to drink more than 6 refills, including in between meals.

Another lifestyle change I’m in desperate need of is balance. Ahh, what we all strive for in life. Back in July, I attended my first yoga class ever at a local studio near my house where I was introduced to vinyasa yoga. Ever since, I was immediately obsessed with yoga, the meaning behind the practice, and all of it’s benefits. As of last month, yoga slowly became a daily ritual for me. I can’t begin to explain how much it is helping not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well.

I am grasping how to focus my energy on the things I have control over, as opposed to overanalyze and be angry with situations that are outside of my reach. The connection and understanding I now have with my intuition is even more powerful. Point is, I am able to overcome stress and not allow it to cloud my vision anymore. I am still a beginner and I go at my own pace, but there’s truly no better way to get my yoga fix than in the morning. It totally sets the tone for the day, it is motivating, powerful, and not to mention my sciatica has been tolerable. I encourage you all to give it a try at some point.
