Health is not just about fitness, but rather ultimate beauty. Well-being becomes the foundation for everything else running smoothly in your life. I was lucky enough to learn this at a young age from my family. Your habits at home set the tone for a lot of things in your life. One precedent my mom always taught me was to take care of my body, feed myself good food, sleep when I felt I needed to sleep, sweat each day and most of all take care of my skin. Skin is the essential determination for health. What has she always used on her skin? Vichy Normaderm for sensitive and acne prone skin! You know what they say about mom's always being right.... I figured I would share her favourite skin regime here with you all because I love it too!
Their three step process is used to hydrate, purify and clear the skin...
Step 1: Cleanse
Step 2: Tone
Step 3: Treat
Let's get a bit more personal on my skin….. I have been through a lot of skin ups and downs my entire life. I believe skin’s reaction is 80% based on what you eat, however the products you use play a big part as well (especially on clearing any damage from what you ingested - like toxins from bad food!). I have gone from veg, to vegan, to pescatarian, back to veg and so on... so to process and change of food on my system has always caused my skin to react… (and not to mention being on and off the pill is a whole other story... right ladies).
What your body digests and does not agree with, it will have to excrete either through your digestion or skin. I always try and stay in tune to what my needs are and understand the process. Its a long road to testing out what works with your body and skin (especially if you're highly sensitive like me!). I recommend Vichy Normaderm for anyone with sensitive or acne prone skin. It clears your skin and leaves it feeling smooth. Fresh faced is the best way to start any day. And as you route the problem whether digestion or otherwise, clearing what has come from your reaction is the best start!
I love using this three step process not only because it works but because it reminds me of eternal health and care for my body that I was always taught at a young age. Yes, some things like acne and scrunchies are better left in the past, but what you learn from your family roots never should be!
