Our skin is beautiful. It is living. It is our protector. It is our healer.
Did you know our skin tells a story? When we are at our healthiest, our skin radiates an undeniable glow with just minor imperfections. Although, we can develop irritations and sensitivities due to the environment, internal imbalances, and even topical products. That is our skin's way of saying, "Help!". Overuse of irritating products and those that are not proper for our unique microbiome (Yes! Our skin is super complex!), creates a breakdown of our protective barrier. Our skin's bacteria call us home and protect us from invading pathogens by communicating with our immune system. We must maintain our microbiome so they all continue to work harmoniously to keep us healthy. Inflammation, breakouts, itchiness, and burning are just a few symptoms that speak loudly by saying there is something wrong. Our body sends us an invitation into understanding imbalances and these messages say there is an inner and outer disharmony. This creates a challenging yet deep understanding of ourselves and how we need just the right type of attention. Little clues our body gives us are important so we can tap into our needs. Sometimes it doesn't necessarily feel luxurious but as we surrender and tune in, we begin to feel more like ourselves..a gift that we can only give ourselves.
Just as flowers bloom within the perfect environment, our precious skin needs the perfect balance to be its healthiest. Lots of water, beneficial bacteria, nutrients from the earth (topically and internally), and gentle sun exposure creates and maintains a harmonious balance for our best skin ever.
