Combating Eye Bags This Morning!
Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Latoya. I am one of the founding ladies of Natural Bliss. If you have ever written to us before; you may know me as the one who mostly responds to your emails.
Today I decided to write to you, because I slept terrible last night. What??? Please give me a chance to explain.
My husband is currently out of town, so my three boys are always in competition over who gets to sleep with me. Well, last night I allowed my nine-year-old to sleep with me. For some reason, I tossed and turned all night. I woke up drowsy and with eye bags.
After dropping my kids off to school; I was determined to get some more rest. That was, to no avail. Ok, so I jumped into the shower to wake me up and put on one of our face serums. Wow! Not so puffy eyes.
I started thinking, I need to share this. So, I started snapping some photos. Although, I am terrible at selfies.
Now, let me tell you about my skin, starting with past. I had combination skin with a very greasy T-zone. I remember how I would constantly wipe my greasy face all day. In the summer, forget it. I used to wear foundation just to absorb the grease off my skin. I never really suffered break outs, but having greasy skin would always drive me crazy. I tried different remedies, like using rubbing alcohol on my face. Unfortunately, it only made my skin greasier in the summer and completely dry during the winter.
The best thing I ever did for my skin was put oil on it. Now you must really think I’m crazy, to put oil on a greasy face. Yes, because oil balances oil. Let me clarify, the right kind of oil balances oil.
In 2008, I was liberated from my greasy skin by using our face serum. Not only does it balance my natural skin oil, but it also keeps my complexion bright. I have never suffered from puffy eyes, but today I learned that it also helps that as well.
Today I used the Mature/Dry Face Serum. I tend to switch up which face serum I use. I chose the Mature/Dry Face Serum because of the puffy eyes (aka eye bags) and I was excited at what it did for me. Let me add, although it is formulated for Mature/Dry skin it is not greasy. Also, that slight minty tingly feeling was refreshing.
If you have doubts about using a Face Serum, please listen to my personal testimony. I promise that it is not greasy, this is coming from a person who used to suffer from greasy skin.
My my skin is still combination and my T-zone is still more oily, but not greasy. I cannot lotion my whole body with my nose and cheeks any more. Let me mention, I have not worn foundation in almost ten years and have been make up free for almost seven.
Think about it, children do not need to powder their nose. And don’t they still look beautiful! So why do we feel compelled to cover up our skin? Let it breathe, let it free. Trust me you will feel a sense of freedom when you do. Also, let’s be realistic, no one has completely flawless skin. There is always going to be an unwanted guest that suddenly appears from time to time. Maybe you have teenage acne scars or that mole you just never felt comfortable with. But that’s okay, perfection is not the definition of beauty.
I look tired, but no more eye bags!
Once your skin is allowed to breathe, you will be surprised at how fast scars heal. Those puffy eyes (eye bags) will diminish, making way for youthful and bright skin. Believe me, I am a little older than you think. :)
Well, I hope that you enjoyed my mini drama story. The saga continues…
