If your skin could talk,
what would you hear?
how your skin feels.
You can listen to your skin talk by responding to its symptoms.
By hearing what your skin is telling you, you will be able to
proactively treat your skin conditions.
We all have symptoms. We just need to notice what they are
then pay attention to them.
Let me make it simple to understand what I mean by this.
A meteorologist uses a barometer to determine weather conditions.
is used for measuring barometric pressure in weather forecasting. They
know when a storm or "bad" weather is approaching the barometer is
falling and things do not look so good.
When the barometer is rising, they know that "blue skies" and "clear"
weather are usually expected and things look much better.
I am using the word barometer merely to make a point, so that you can
understand what I mean by symptoms. When your barometer is rising you
are probably using products with the proper ingredients and eating
foods that can nourish your skin and body.
When your barometer is falling it looks bad and you are experiencing
one or more
it is telling you that you are probably doing "bad"
things to yourself.
Your skin uses symptoms to talk to you.
The barometer is a visual way to explain what you are looking at. As
barometer tells the meteorologist what conditions are outside so do
speak to you of your condition inside of your body and on
When we are talking about your skin, what affects
your skin's barometer?
barometer is affected by what you are feeding your body, feeding your
skin and your environment. In the same sense as the symptom begins to
appear on the skin, we also know that something is wrong and that an
action needs to be taken.
It is quite simple. . .
For instance, if you have tight and flaky skin, it is a symptom
that may be telling you that the skin is not producing enough oils to
achieve the natural balance of your skin.
being the key word.
And why might this be happening?
Maybe from the products you are applying to your skin, or the way you
treating your body. Further research has shown that certain products as
well as many facial treatments could be part of the problem, depending
on your skin symptoms.
I am not aware of any one product that is going to do all the work for
you. My experience has shown that
it may take a combination of skin care products and foods and life
changes to treat your skin symptoms.
In other words, some products work like a "band aid" and simply cover
up the symptom.
What happens when you stop using the product and
the symptom returns?
Is it possible you could be making the skin symptoms worse or maybe
cause another symptom to arise? Relying on any one product may be a
fix, and may work for some symptoms, but has it really done anything to
treat the condition?
It seems to me that band aids were made to cover the surface, what we
are talking about here is much deeper than that.
Let's say you choose a product, and you use it
over a period of time
without any real results.
do you do then? Run for another product or try
another "quick fix"
to cover up the symptom? Or will you try to begin
another regimen that could in the long run only end up costing you tons
of money? Or perhaps you will be one of those who might spend sleepless
nights because you can't seem to solve your skin symptoms or produce
Instead of running out to
the store with little or no education, maybe it's time you stop and try
Maybe you can try letting the condition run its course for awhile so
you can understand the skin
symptom. Chances are you've been messing with the natural oils and the
balance of your skin and body for quite some time now. Consider it is
time for a change.
