Yesterday, I was listening to our Skin Expert talk about some of the results that her clients have from regular dermaplaning. I found it fascinating to learn that a babies skin cells are renewing around every 8 days and ours is more like every 28 days. The dermaplaning gives your skins a quicker renewal of cells which is when you get the baby skin look and feel. More plump, glow, and overall newness.
This was incredible to me to learn this and made me say, hmmmm, I better start doing this more regularly. Can you imagine having a look and feel of a baby face instead of aging with the rest of our cohorts? Sorry, 40s, I am not going to just settle for your "natural aging process".
Then I read that brown spots are not really liver spots or sunspots, they are aging spots. Like stop it! The article stated that age spots can cause a person to look 20 years ahead of their time. Okay, I got the message and am getting my dermaplaning on the books regularly. The next time you see me, you just might have to card my id because you won't believe it. The key is consistency and so looks like I'm getting a baby face over the course of the next few months.

I'm thrilled to recently discover the pain that my face and ear had been experiencing can be controlled by the way that I sleep at night!!! I am a cozy side sleeper by nature, but my ear and face had been hurting me the moment I woke for some weeks. I have been diagnosed with TMJ, but that doesn't mean I will keep that forever. I choose to let it go from my being and not own it.
In my research to relieve this, I discovered and experimented with becoming a back sleeper. I had to mindful and consciously change this. I am happy to report that I do not experience the severity or am even nearly as bothered as I had been since.
Here's how I achieved and am continuing to master this habit as my new auto-pilot sleep position.
Here's to you changing your habits, even while you sleep!

Anxeity is defined as, "a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome." In psychiatry, "Anxiety is defined as a nervous disorder characterized by a state of excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behavior or panic attacks."
Anxiety is not new and is definitely something more people are recognizing within their own being. If you've ever experienced anxiety or an anxiety attack it is not a fun feeling at all. I recall, when my sister, Jane, died that I felt like I was having a heart attack. My arm became numb and I just remember thinking that my parents cannot have two of their children die within a week. Luckily, I am schooled in the symptoms and knew that it was an overwhelm of fear, anxious, worry, panicky thoughts. I was able to slow my breathing and talk myself to a more normal state of mindfulness.
Because it can happen to anyone the ideal situation is to keep your mind and body in an abundance of relaxation state. In other words, before you experience a traumatic experience or even a nightmare you want to pre-treat yourself with the following tips:
1) Receive Reiki-Reiki is an energy healing practice that is usually done by placing the hands in a series of positions over or slightly above the body. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level. Schedule your session @ either La Palmera Spa location 337-451-5864 or 337-740-7422
2) Neck stretches-look down with chin to chest, take 2 deep breaths then slowly roll your neck from right to left until you did a full circle.
3) Strike a Pose-Just stand in a warrior pose and stretch as far as you can go
4) Journal-let your thoughts flow. The hand to paper ritual releases tension and allows you to slow your thoughts.
5) Get Organized-start small and take on 1 project at a time.
Stopping anxiety is a process. Give yourself the time, attention, and love by being patient with yourself and happy that you are taking control of your being.
