Have you ever gone anywhere or done something out of your normal routine and realized you have thrown your whole body out of balance? Maybe it was traveling food, or hotel shower water, but now your body, face, and skin are screaming help!!! Ok, no problem…. Nothing a little detoxifying face scrub can’t fix.
Currently, I am more of a hermit. You know I stay at home a lot and don’t get out of my routine, maybe its a more comfortable or more likely it’s 5 kids.
Well, a recent winter vacation had us heading south to escape the winter, perfect, I know, that’s what we thought too!
I guess the skin was in total shock, breakout city over here.
In my former days, I would have freaked out. Why is my skin breaking out… PANIC…. ugh….
Not anymore, those days are long gone. I understand my body a bit more now. My body is really for me, not against me. If I am willing to learn it will give me subtle (or not so subtle) clues. The question is then what are the clues? How do we read them, and most importantly how do we correct them?
Have you ever heard of Chinese Face Mapping? Basically, it is using the signs our skin is giving us to tell us where internally we need to focus on healing our bodies. Our skin is basically just the external signal for what is going on internally. So in a way, skin issues are our friends helping to guide us to healing our internal issues.
So with this knowledge, I can go to work healing any issue. Understanding what needs help, I can hit the ground running. Kombucha, fermented foods, a little extra FCLO and a little facial detoxing and I’m good to go.
