Eeek, I feel really bad admitting this. I feel like I have been leading a double life, but that is the reason to come clean (pun intended). One of my most sacred values is being real, even on social media. Just search my hashtags #RealFacebook #RealLife
So here it goes.
I don’t wash my face at night!
Shock, horror! The girl that sells skin care doesn’t look after her skin!
Ok, it’s not that big a deal, not in grand scheme of things. But it does matter to me because I like to like what I see in the mirror. I got started on this whole network marketing thing because of my skin so I feel I am betraying my back story if I don’t sort it out.
It all comes down to habit. And in my defense it was because I had started another really good habit that this one slid away.
I always cleansed my face before bed every night, even if I didn’t have make up on, I would do it to remove the dirt from the day and then to use some great night creams which I knew would do my face so much good.
But then I started a mini workout regime just before bed, lifting some weights. It was to help my arm muscles get stronger for synchronised swimming. I was going to bed later and later and although I was keeping up with my weights habit, the other one slipped and I stopped cleaning my face at night.
Then the other day I looked in the mirror and I didn’t like what I saw. I might have beautifully toned upper arms and I know they help me immensely in the water, but my face was not good. Wrinkles round the eyes, dark spots and the thing that bothered me most, large pores and therefore greasy skin.
It isn’t vain of me to think this way. Far from it. Liking what you see in the mirror is a huge part of loving yourself which is vital. Enlarged pores and wrinkles may not bother you in the slightest but they bother me. And that is fine.
So I’m on a mission to break this bad habit and start a better one. I have put photos of my bare face, enlarged pores included on Facebook (click https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fevanskimberley%2Fposts%2F10161060184045387&width=500“>here to see!) and have been updating my Inner Nourish group with daily pictures of me actually doing the thing.
I’m sharing this for 2 reasons. I wanted a bit of accountability to make me actually do it to begin with. But also to spread the important message that yes, beauty is more than your appearance, but if you are not happy with what you see, then it is totally ok to do something about that.
I stand for happiness and adventure. If your skin is holding you back from achieving either of those things then do something about it. There is a solution for every skin problem, you just have to find the right thing for you and the person who knows how to help you properly. That person might just be me! Get in touch and let’s get you smiling again!
