Wow! Only two posts since I’m here…shocking! Not really, though. I’ve always been the kind of person who never finishes what she starts. This is no exception I guess. Remember the days when you were a kid and everything seemed possible? I do, and I know what my dreams were. They were grand, and I was sure as hell I’ll make them come true. It’s so easy being a kid – your whole life’s ahead of you. One minute you’re 16 and you know one day you’ll become exactly what you want to be; the next minute you’re 24 and you see you’re not even close. Now, before you say I’m an idiot because I’m still young and what not, understand that my age is not the issue. The issue is the years went by and I did absolutely nothing to TRY and achieve what I always thought was my “destiny”. I always thought I was talented, smart and capable of great things. Somehow, though, none of those “characteristics” were proven plausible. Not in my case anyway.
The scariest part for me is the feeling I have that says I’ll always stay the same. Sure, I’ve changed a lot since I was a kid, but the truly important parts about myself that I needed to change I didn’t. Why is that? I know what they are, why is it so hard for me to just say “snap out of it you big coward!”? When will I start fighting for what I want?
Ok, so I’m ready for post #2! Probably because this is the first thing worth reading since I started this…journey? Well, I have had problems with my facial skin for a looooong, long time now and I finally discovered a remedy that works perfectly! I wish I listened to my mother sooner and started with the natural remedies right away. Eh…puberty, am I right? Anyway, to cut a long story short – acne is what I’m talking about. Thankfully, I never had a very severe case, but it was enough to make me hate myself while growing up (being an insecure adolescent that I was). Acne are different than common zits, as those of you who are reading this (if anyone) will know. These tend to leave scars even if you’re able to control yourself and NOT touch them. I’m in my mid-twenties now which means I’m pretty sick and tired of them already and I can’t believe I didn’t turn to natural remedies sooner. I wonder why I refused to believe nature can help me.
I’m blabbing too much so here it goes – rose hip seed oil. I couldn’t be happier with the results even after just one week of usage. I read somewhere that it can too heavy for certain skin types when used alone, in which case it should be mixed with other natural oils. However, I wanted to try it on its own just to see how my skin would react. I apply it once a day in the evening, as it is quite oily (duh!) and by the next morning my face is just as it should be, fresh and moisturized. After about 3 days of using it I could already see that my skin is not inflamed and red anymore. The scars are still here but I swear I see them becoming less and less visible. The best part is that not a single new zit appeared in the meantime. I can’t vouch for it to work on everyone, but it’s worth a shot if nothing else worked. Actually, I would first try this and only if it didn’t work I would move on to something else. Also, a common misconception among us acne sufferers is that oil will make your skin even worse. I don’t know where we got that The truth is the skin needs hydration, which is accomplished through the use of moisturizers. Dehydration of skin is something you don’t want happening, so don’t avoid skin moisturizers! This rose hip seed oil is exactly what my skin needed and I hope it will help you in your struggles as well!
This is my first post and, to be honest, I have no idea what I’m doing here. I think I’m stuck in a rut and am very close to a very heavy meltdown. Writing about it might do me good so…here I am! I’ll try to be positive and not let my anger and insecurities dominate my spectrum of emotions. In order to achieve tranquility I think I must first gain control over my emotions and only then will I be able to see things clearly. How do I do that though? Every time I try to get a hold of myself, it seems to be working for a while. However, after some time I realize I’m back where I started – nowhere – and I don’t even know how it happened! I’m trying to avoid that from happening again so I’ll use this blog as a tool that will help me transform from who I am now into someone I see myself becoming in the future (hopefully all goes as planed!).
