Did you know that the pimples popping up on your skin today actually began to form approximately 90 days ago?
It takes about 90 days for a pimple to form. It starts as a microcomedones in the pore and can take 3 different paths: a whitehead, a blackhead or a pustule, depending upon the presence of bacteria and inflammation.
There are many consumers that go to great lengths to avoid chemicals due to toxicity concerns, however there is a toxin that is far more dangerous and has far reaching effects.
This toxin is called STRESS.
I find one of the simplest pleasures for reducing stress is to give yourself a facial. Nothing relaxes you like a pampering mask. It makes you feel better about yourself and raises your good feeling hormones.
Meditation is also magic.
Next time you feel stressed ask yourself is this worth getting upset about? I find too often people becoming upset over the most trivial thing. Their stress levels are triggered so easily.
So this weekend do your skin and genes a favour and relax!
