Keratosis Pilaris Tips

Keratosis Pilaris 1

Keratosis Pilaris Tips

For skin that suffers with bumps & dryness that can look & feel irritating.

Keratosis pilaris is often called ‘chicken skin’, which looks like many small, rough or red little bumps on the skin. It often appears on the upper arms, cheeks, buttocks and thighs, around the hair follicles. Normally dead skin cells flake off the skin. Whilst the cause of it is not totally understood, researchers believe that sometimes, the keratin formed around the hair follicles builds up or becomes twisted which causes the clogging the pores, resulting in the bumps. Keratosis pilaris is generally linked with other skin conditions like atopic dermatitis and eczema. It also tends to happen during childhood and adolescence, though whilst not always the case, it usually disappears by adulthood.

From Wikipedia, ‘Keratin’ is part of the fibrous structural protein family, otherwise known as ‘scleroproteins’ which is found in vertebrae. It’s responsible for making hair and nails, as well as our outer layer of skin. Keratin protects cells from becoming damaged or stressed, is extremely insoluble in organic solvents and water. It’s an essential building block for our skin, necessary for generating new cells.

Usually the condition can become worse during the winter months, as the skin tends to dry out more when the weather is less humid. Another factor seems to be the age of the person suffering, frequently appearing in childhood, reaching the peak during the adolescent years and vanishing by adulthood.

So what can we do to help treat the condition naturally? Here’s a few things we can add to our daily routine to help reduce the built-up keratin on the skin:

Dry Brush the Area – this technique can help remove the dead skin cells as well as unclog the pores. Gently and preferably on dry skin, you can use a natural bristle brush or loofa in sweeping movements, as though you were brushing long hair. The last thing you want to do is hard brushing to further irritate your skin’s condition. Once the dry brushing is done, wash yourself in the shower and ensure your skin is pat dried. Apply the moisturiser to your body to invigorate the newly brushed cells.

Exfoliate the area with Sea Salt – The key is always being gentle to the areas you are exfoliating to ensure you’re not further aggravating the skin. Sea Salt contains anti-inflammatory properties that help calm and soothes the skin, whilst removing the dead skin cells, encouraging moisture levels to be maintained. Pink Himalayan salt is also great for achieving this. Below I’ll share some additional homemade scrub and the previous blog of ideas that you can put together from home ingredients.

Mild instead of Harsh Soaps – Preferably made with natural and non-toxic ingredients.This will allow the sensitive affected area to be cleansed, preventing further irritation, redness, or build-up. Further suggestions will be added below.

Moisturising Your Skin – Using non-irritating skincare products which have beneficial ingredients that are anti-inflammatory, rich in vitamins, reduce redness, hydrate and soothe the skin is what you are looking for. The idea is to find a product that you can leave on your skin, containing ingredients like Avocado, Jojoba, Coconut which will give your skin this natural boost required to keep it feeling wonderfully soft rather than dry, rough or flaky.Suggestions for the body butters we make containing rich ingredients will be added below.

Humidifiers – can actually bring moisture back to your environment, especially during the cold winter months, when your skin feels its driest. This can be kept in the bedroom or the most central part of the living area to ensure the whole space has moisture. Other tips for keeping moisture will be added below.

Eating Foods that are Anti-Inflammatory – can help your body utilize the vitamins and minerals required for skin cell growth. Green leafy vegetables, colourful ingredients like carrots and beets, berries, salmon, and those rich in omega3 will all play their part. These anti-inflammatory ingredients provide antioxidants, encourage cells to repair, and reduce swelling too. Drinking water will also assist with flushing away toxins that may have built up in your system as well as keeping your body hydrated.

DIY Homemade Scrubs, Soaps, Body Butters, Vegetable Oils

A few suggestions to help improve your skin’s condition include making your own Homemade scrub combining:

Sea Salt, Raw Coarse Sugar & Olive Oil is quick and easy to mix together, great for removing any dead skin cells, especially from over washed hands;

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Raw Honey , which has natural skin-boosting nutrients, acids and feels wonderfully moisturising on the skin. Once made, apply in the shower to the area affected with Keratosis pilaris, gently rubbing into the skin.After approximately 15 minutes, rinse off with warm water;

Blend Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Vegetable Oils together. Suggestions include either Coconut, Avocado or Jojoba oils. Apply these to the affected areas and the rest of your body as they have natural skin-boosting nutrients and acids which feel wonderfully moisturising on the skin. Please ensure the base is a Carrier oil especially if you are planning to add Lavender or Peppermint Essential Oils to the mix. Note: Peppermint Essential oil is not suitable for expecting/nursing women.

Using Vegetable Oils , like Avocado, Coconut, Jojoba Oil are extremely rich in Vitamins. They allow the skin to absorb the benefits, reduce redness, allowing the skin cells to regenerate whilst keeping it hydrated. Below are the Essentially Lili Products that can help keep your skin hydrated;

Refer to the previous blog: What’s in your fridge for more suggestions.

Essentially Lili Range of Body Butters containing ingredients rich in antioxidants:
The Jazz Body Butter contains Avocado, which is rich in Vitamins A, which can help reduce redness and encourage skin cell support. The other body butters, Mint Body Butter & Geranium Hands & Body contain ingredients like Coconut, Apricot, Soyabean, Grapeseed & Sweet Almond which are also bursting with benefits for the skin’s condition. The scents with the particular essential oils are subtle, yet refreshing. If you love mint, you’ll be tempted to eat the product (not suggesting it though) whilst the Jazz has a gentle Asian Fusion of Lemongrass and Jasmine.

Adding a bowl of water to a dry room during the winter months can assist with maintaining moisture in the rooms.It’s also important to ensure the heating is turned down whilst sleeping, as this can also draw moisture from your skin, leaving it feeling super-dry the following morning.

Castile Soap can be used to prevent the Keratosis pilaris becoming worse. Traditionally made with Olive Oil, you can include Jojoba Oil, Honey, Lavender and Vitamin E to your blend to keep your skin softly treated whilst washing up. I’ll write more about Castile Soap in the future blogs.

To conclude, Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition affecting more youth than it does adults. The surface of the skin feels rough and bumpy, usually caused by clogged pores. The most effective way to treat it is by gently exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and encouraging the pores to become unblocked. Also, by keeping the area moisturised with natural products, avoiding those that are toxic or harsh to the skin. The ingredients to assist hydration should include Avocado, Jojoba, Coconut Oil, Sea Salt, Raw Honey, Lavender Essential Oil and Castile soap.

    Health Advice COVID19 Pandemic

    Influenza Mar2020

    Health Advice during COVID19 Pandemic

    How advice from Medical Experts can keep you well

    Firstly, I hope that all your family wherever they are located are safe and well.This current situation is surreal, as we watch the News shared around the world about how the virus is spreading, making people of all ages ill.

    My recent trip to Sicily via Rome had me wondering why there were so many people walking around the airports with masks on. Irrespective of China’s situation, travellers were out exploring and visiting locations, family and friends. On my way back from Sicily, I remember the air-hostess in Rome commenting out loud to her colleague,as we waited to board the bus to our plane, that flights from China were going to stopped. That was the 2nd of February 2020.

    The following week was Ski Holidays for the Swiss and European countries, so thousands would have head to some part of Switzerland, Italy, Austria, and France for their vacation. We took off to Madrid Spain to have a family reunion with my brother who flew in from Australia, enjoying the historic beauty, foods and social vibe of this amazing country. People were everywhere, in queues, in the squares, embracing, sharing, taking in what the city has to offer.Further north, workers in the northern parts of Italy who work across the border in Ticino Switzerland would have carried on a daily basis.Without realising, travellers, workers and those of us carrying on with our daily lives have been passing and transferring the Coronavirus COVID-19 virus from country to country.

    These numbers are astounding – I can’t even imagine all of these people in hospitals, isolated, on ventilators and fighting for their lives.The harsh reality is that not all of the patients are elderly.The statistics include younger people, some with pre-existing conditions making their bodies vulnerable when trying to overcome this battle.For Switzerland, apparently places like Verbier became the incubating hub for the Coronavirus, as skiing holiday makers from all over Europe and beyond went there for their vacation, before returning home with the contagious virus.

    People Need to SELF-ISOLATE when returning from holidays and travels for at least 14 days.Preventing the spreading of the virus is absolutely important.

    To check the data and progress of the virus, use this link: Worldometers Info Coronavirus. The information below is from this source dated 25th March 2020 and shows countries all around the globe that are affected.

    The first 3 cases were reported in Italy on the 15th of February 2020 but by the 23nd of March, they have 69,176 cases, with the highest reported new cases on 21st of March with 6,557 and a toll of 6,820 citizens.

    The first case was reported in Switzerland on the 26th of February 2020 but by the 23nd of March, they have 10,456 cases, with the highest reported new cases on 20th of March with 1,393 and a toll of 145 citizens.

    The first 2 cases were reported in Spain on the 15th of February 2020 but by the 23nd of March, they have 47,610 cases, with the highest reported new cases on 24th of March with 6,922 and a toll of 3,434 citizens.

    The first 9 cases were reported in UK on the 15th of February 2020 but by the 23rd of March, they have 8,077 cases, with the highest reported new cases on 24th of March with 1,427 and a toll of 422 citizens.

    These alarming numbers are to give perspective on how quickly the spreading of the virus has happened, and with our ability to travel in and out of numerous destinations, we unknowingly have been taking the contagious passenger with us.When comparing these to Singapore with only 2 deaths out of the 558 cases it is clear that their actions to check citizen’s temperatures and encourage social distancing have paid off for the small country.Containment, control and vigilance from the authorities and the people of Singapore have been able to limit the spreading of the contagion.

    ” Safety isn’t Expensive, it’s Priceless ”.Unknown

    What do we know about these kinds of viral infections?

    I have found an interesting and informative 5-minute video put together by Nucleus Medical Media explaining how influenza functions particularly with the H and N strains.
    See Video here: Influenza Video

    Without having to type out everything that is explained on the video, it explains the H and N spikes that allow the influenza virus to latch onto our healthy cells, multiplying and overtaking our bodies.
    Influenza (or flu) virus is an extremely contagious viral infection that attacks your nose, throat, and lungs, which can cause fever, runny nose, coughs, sore throat, chills, fatigue, and muscle aches. The flu virus is extremely small visible via electron microscopes.Inside the virus is genetic material containing information that generates additional copies of the same virus.

    The genetic material is surrounded by the protein shell, providing a hard protective enclosure. This allows the virus to travels between animals and people it infects.The outer envelope allows the virus to infect when it merges with the outer membrane of the cells. Projecting from the envelope is protein molecules spikes which the flu virus uses to get into your healthy cells, creating more cells. The ‘h’ spikes become keys that latch onto cells in the body, whilst ‘n’ spikes allow copies and free the viral to move around to infect more cells. There are 17 ‘h’ and 9 ‘n’ spikes that are known and used by Scientists to name other strains of flu viruses such as h5n1 otherwise called Avian influenza or ‘bird flu’.

    The virus remains on surfaces and objects which can be passed when we touch these items.An infected person coughs or sneezes, sending droplets which are carried from an infected person can enter our mouths or nose, and into the lungs.Once inside, the influenza virus comes into contact with the nose, throat and lungs cells.The ‘h’ cells find the receptor molecule and latch onto this healthy cell membrane, like a key fitting into a lock, which allows the virus to penetrate into the cell.

    Travelling inside the sack made by the cell’s membranes to the nucleus, the viral sack and membrane sack are connected.It gives the viral genetic material ability to leave the sack and access to the cell’s nucleus, overtaking the material and energy whilst creating thousands of versions of itself. Some move out of the nucleus, attaching itself to the protein building parts of your cell, called Ribosomes.These use the genetic material and make other viral proteins such as the ‘h’ and ‘n’ spikes, which are the packaging structure called Golgi apparatus carrying the h and n spikes in vesicles that merge with your cells’ membrane.All that is necessary to create new virus amalgamate beneath the cell’s membrane, allowing a new virus to group and spread.The new virus locks onto the membrane receptors ‘h’ spikes whilst the ‘n’ spike cuts it free from the receptors.New influenza viruses are able to infect other cells in the body, causing the flu to develop.

    Anti-viral drugs assist to speed the recovery process.The medication’s task is to block the viral and spike from freeing the virus.This is to cause them to remain stuck to the surface of the cells, preventing them from escaping and infecting other cells.Taking the flu vaccine injection containing dead versions of varying types of the influenza virus or a nasal spray with a few weak but live forms of the virus are methods of preventing the viral attack.This method of being exposed to the influenza virus which is too weak to cause infection, but strong enough to stimulate the immune system to respond to it.Within approximately two weeks, the immune system would have created markers called ‘Antibodies’ which are specific to the types of flu contained in the vaccine the body was exposed to.These antibodies attach themselves to each flu viral ‘h’ and ‘n’ spike, preventing these from attaching to your cells, as well as connecting to other viruses, allowing them to clump together.The body’s immune system responds to the work of the antibodies, collecting, destroying, and removing the clumps of viral infections.If in future you are exposed to the flu or these kinds of viral infections, they’ll be recognised by your body and destroyed, preventing you from developing the flu from these strains.To prevent being affected by new strains, the vaccine would have to be taken every year.Courtesy – Nucleus Medical Media.

    Some advice that the Medical teams have been sharing from their experiences whilst dealing with, trying to help and save those suffering from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).Recently an audio recording was distributed, and this is what was shared.

    ‘The Chinese now understand the behavior of COVID19 virus from autopsies they have carried out.The virus is characterized by obstructing respiratory pathways with thick mucus that solidifies and blocks the airways and lungs.Discovered in order to apply medicine, the airways need to be opened unblocked so that the treatment can take effect. However, it takes a number of days.Remember to safeguard yourselves during this time.’ Please this information is to help keep you and your family safe, not to frighten you. :

    • Drink lots of hot liquids, coffee, soups, teas, and warm water.Also, sip warm water every 20 minutes keeps your mouth and throat moist, as it helps to pass any of the virus to your stomach where the gastric juices will neutralize it before it can get to the lungs.

    • Gargle with antiseptic in warm water with lemon saltwater or vinegar every day if possible.

    • Virus attaches itself to hair & clothes, including beards for men.The detergent will kill it but you must wash when you get inside from the street. Avoid sitting down anywhere, just go to the bathroom and wash yourselves. If you can’t wash your clothes daily, hang them in direct sunlight which also neutralizes the virus.

    • Wash metallic surfaces very carefully as the virus can remain viable for up to 9 days. Take note and be vigilant about touching handrails.Clean the surfaces etc.

    • Don’t smoke.

    • Wash your hands every 20 minutes with any soap that foams, wash them thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.Avoid constantly touching your face, mouth and eyes, especially if you haven’t washed your hands first.However, it has been advised to ensure the soap contains alcohol and disinfectant.

    • Eat fruits and veggies, try elevating your zinc levels not just your vitamin C.

    • Animals don’t spread the virus, it’s a person to person transmission.

    • Avoid getting common flu as it makes your system weak, and avoid eating & drinking cold things.

    • Discomfort in your throat or sore throat coming on, attack it using the above suggestions.The virus can enter your system, remains for 3-4 days within the throat before going to the lungs.

    Additional advice which has been given by varying medical experts in other countries:

    • SELF ISOLATE FOR 2 WEEKS ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE BEEN TRAVELLING.This is in case you are carrying the virus and to prevent you spreading beyond your home.This is not a punishment but a life-saving caution which can help stop the vulnerable getting ill.

    • The virus does not discriminate – it doesn’t care if you’re rich, intelligent, in a high powered job, what your food choices are, whether you’re a Vegan/Vegetarian.It has been affecting the elderly more than the younger generations, but they are not exempt for being infected.

    • Losing your sense of smell can be a sign of infection. Please refer to the attachment above from the British Rhinological Society.

    • Do not take Ibuprofen as it can make the condition worse.Paracetamol is suggested instead.

    • Ensure you check on your elderly and vulnerable neighbours by phone or from a distance to prevent spreading the virus to them.For instance, get their supplies and leave it at their door for them.What we have seen in Italy is that family members were socialising and bringing the virus whilst visiting relatives, making them ill and spreading the disease.

    • Going outside means in your immediate surroundings, not for a play, hiking and strolling around the parks and neighbourhoods. This virus is unseen, so you don’t know what is infected, increasing the risk of picking up and transferring it to the vulnerable.Where we are in Switzerland, we have seen so many out socialising and not keeping their distance, allowing the virus to spread unnecessarily and despite the lockdown instructions of the Governments.Remember if this was a different kind of threat you could see, you would be inside to protect yourself and loved ones.

    • The Medical Doctors, Nurses & Experts are exhausted and working around extremely long hours to help those who are affected, at their own risk.We can help them by staying in the comforts of our homes, with our loved ones, taking care of our health whilst they fight to save those in the hospital.All they ask is that ‘WE STAY AT HOME’.

    • And for those who are still a bit ‘unsure of the consequences of the lax approach in Italy’, I have included a link to Giada Russo’s Blog talking about life in Italy during the crisis, and How Does Italy Deal with the COVID19

    Things you can do:
    * Check on your friends and family, remaining connected via Social Media;
    * Watch some fun Films on Netflix with your family;
    * Play Games – so many suggestions on my private page – Scrabble, Monopoly, Escape-Room, Uno;
    * Engage in conversations with your kids, laugh & allow yourselves to enjoy this precious time together;
    * Love and make yourself comfortable at home;
    * Take the opportunity to study and improve your skill-set;
    * Finish off tasks you never got around to and plan for the rest of the year;
    * Use the time to appreciate your health, well-being and the life you have.
    * We are in this together!Care for your neighbours at a distance and follow the advice of Medical Experts working hard to save those who are ill.

    Health Beauty & Wellness Awards

    Health Beauty Awards

    Health Beauty & Wellness Awards

    How does accepting this validate your accomplishments and journey for success?

    Many of you recently took part in Voting for Essentially Lili’s Health Beauty and Wellness Awards. Whilst I had never been nominated for anything before, I was beyond ecstatic when you all jumped in to vote for both my business and me as a person.You have NO idea how delightful it is to receive and read the screenshots, comments and testimonials.You made me feel validated, as the Magic Pot creator who has a purpose for helping you feel confident about yourself!

    On the 9th of March, the deliberation by the panel was to take place. Later that evening, the quick announcement was made! ‘Best Online Skincare & Wellbeing Retailer Switzerland’ had been awarded to Essentially Lili.

    You can ask my kids, I read it out loud, arms in the air ‘YES’, so happy and excited.I mean, seriously, that’s amazing right? I took a copy of the announcement and shared it with my family and closest before posting it on Social Media. How exciting to receive this award! I felt like my hard work had been recognised, first and foremost, by You, my Clientele, and then by the Selection Panel.

    This is where my Integrity becomes the foundation of who I am, and what I represent about my Brand – being honest and true for what I make, what I do, how I price and take care of my customers. I was over the moon about receiving an Award.I loved my clientele’s testimonials, votes and Goodwill

    When I asked you to vote for my business and your products, it’s not something that anyone just does without wanting to. Providing your testimonials and reasons why you love the products, explaining how these made you feel, whilst sharing your personal experiences is exactly that – intimate and special to you and me.

    ” All Our Dreams Can Come True If
    We have the courage to pursue them”.Walt Disney

    And for this reason, I want to celebrate YOU for your votes, all 115 of them, the email messages of support, encouragement, and appreciation which were received with happiness and extreme humility on my part. These are some of the screenshots and posts that were shared by You with me. Sent from Switzerland:

    • Yes definitely! I would wholeheartedly vote for you! I have been sharing the love for your products – sharing is caring! – Anete B

    • Every night when I look at what’s left of my Evanesce Balm, I think, “I have to respond to Lili and make another order.” … And I wanted to let you know that I did vote for you! – Christine G

    • Best natural skincare products as my skin feels and looks its best with #essentiallylili products. Loyal customer for over 2 years for myself, a 40 yo female (no hormonal breakouts with using these products), a teenage son (controls any acne with magical serum) and a preteen daughter with very sensitive skin that loves sunflower cleanser and youth balm to keep her skin from never drying out! – Diana F

    • Hi, done! All the best!!!! You deserve to win! – Judith C

    • I have done it. Most welcome. My favourite products, I am happy to do it (vote) – Suma P

    • Can I refer to the Go Molly product or would it not fall into the beauty category? This one literally saved my sanity, but I can also refer to the hand cream no problem! – Karolina P

    • I have been using Lili’s products for close to 2 years. They are simply amazing. I use the Nourishing Face Balm, Geranium Hand Cream, Lime Foot Repair, Renew Balm and Mandarin Lip Balm. They are made of all-natural ingredients, and they make my skin super soft. My favourite is the Nourishing Face Balm, and I will never use any other face cream again! Apart from being soothing and effective, I love the way they smell… it’s so invigorating to put them on, and I feel like I’m getting spa treatment every time. I can only recommend Essentially Lili products. Hope you win!- Kamali W.

    From Abroad:

    • Both Miriam and I have voted for you of course. Your products should be in all the shops! -Irit P

    • I have nominated you earlier. I mentioned the products and how I’ve moved from Estee Lauder and how it’s improved my skin. Good luck lovely. – Claudene S

    • I have known Lili since she was fighting her own personal battle with sensitive skin way before she set up Essentially Lili. She was then, as she is now, totally committed to finding the answer to problem skin. She is passionate about natural products and the healing/benefits of using them. Essentially Lili is an extension of Lili herself, making wonderful soothing products for herself and her close friends, who were going nowhere with conventional treatments…. Adding, You’re very welcome Lili, You deserve it, I only said what I know to be true. Rose R

    • I have voted for you and praised your products to the rooftops – Dave

    • Not only is Lili a beautiful soul, but she is also passionate about her natural beauty products, helping anyone with whatever skin issues they may have.

I have used multiple products and absolutely love them all.I wholeheartedly vote and support Lili @essentiallylili – Lili Z

    This is what I want to remember about the whole Health, Beauty and Wellness Awards Experience. Whilst for me it was and still is important to feel validated, the most important people for what I do is You.When your kids select my product over the other choices at home, or when you tell me you need to stock up in case I take a break, your request for my brand and loyalty are so much more than anything else. Your wonderful messages that encourage, support and push me to keep doing what I do, knowing that one more person is feeling great about themselves with the products chosen to overcome skin concerns.

    If you Wish It, Dream It, Love It – Do It.

    This has been the quotation and moto I loved from the beginning, in 2015, when I first found it on the boxes that became part of my market stand. This resonated with me, assisting the push to keep trying, experimenting, creating, sampling, collating feedback, sometimes scrapping and starting again. I felt compelled to study and learn, to expand my knowledge, to become the expert and know my ‘stuff’.I want customers to feel confidence when coming to me for help – this is part of the essence of what I do, day in and out.

    My goal is to continue making the products that you and I love, to be part of your journey of confidence, self-love, and ultimate well-being. Whilst I could harbour on my initial disappointment, the Award you gave me and how you made me feel validated is worth a whole lot more. For that, I am eternally grateful.

    When Stress Overwhelms Your Mind

    When Stress Overwhelms Your Mind Feb2020

    When Stress Overwhelms Your mind

    Lately, stepping out of one’s comfort zone can cause
    a staggering effect on our thought process …

    The topic of overwhelming stress has been cropping up in my personal and business feeds quite a lot lately. I had been reflecting on what life was like when I was single in the 90s. I used to travel a lot solo or with work, to various locations around the globe, with confidence and a little bit of angst about the unknown. I would research the places I was about to discover, collating as much information about what I wanted to see and do.

    In 1999, whilst based for work in Houston Texas for 3 months, I used my 12 weekends to explore surrounding areas, both near and far, making the most of my limited stay in the US. Grabbing a small bag, I’d drive to various places in Texas, or catch a flight to New Orleans for my 30th, Miami or head to the Mexican border. I had very little fear and almost everything was so much fun!

    From 2000 to the beginning of 2003, I was based in the UK. I spent many weekends exploring not only the UK but headed off with my ‘Lonely Planet Europe Book’ to discover different cities on the mainland. Enjoying the history and so much of what Australia didn’t have, I spent time locating long-lost family members who I reconnected with their cousins back in Melbourne! I was often asked, ‘What’s in that city you’re going to visit?’… My reply was, ‘Tell you on Monday when I get back!’ These were the days of city maps, internet cafes and 36mm film in your camera!

    It might sound really dumb, but lately, this aspect of planning and booking has become something my husband has done since we got married in 2004. I can’t believe how ‘lost’ I feel, trying to find the right deal, or plan ahead. Whilst I have loads of ideas, I am often overwhelmed by doing it all myself for the family.

    As mentioned in the newsletter, I recently went to secretly visit my Uncle for his 90th birthday in Sicily. I was about to book the trip when my husband found a better deal than I would have otherwise missed. But once it was reserved, I suddenly realised that there was no public transport on a Sunday morning, and the panic set in. As stupid as it sounds, the logistics became my stress – and it consumed my mind, thoughts and sleep. Totally crazy, right?

    The reality is that often something that seems so silly or insignificant to others is what throws you off your own game. It makes you feel weak, incapable, unsure and questioning your inner strength. Should I accept the role as ‘guest speaker’? What would people think of me at an Exhibition or event that I’ve been asked to attend? How do we overcome these feelings, step out of our comfort zone into our fears and take the ultimate plunge?

    Whilst I was having my moment about the trip, I reached out to my Sicilian friend and another connected with Sicily, asking for their advice and help. I felt bad imposing myself on my relatives to take me on the 2+ hour journey back to Palermo airport. I considered driving a car, but again my fear of being alone and behind the wheel in Italy was so consuming that my brain went into overdrive: ‘What if they have snow, what if there’s no snow-tyres on the car, what if I get lost, what if …?’ My husband found a ‘Get Transfer Service’ and booked the trip back on a Sunday morning, and suddenly my fears of being lost, stranded and driving alone all vanished.

    ” Sometimes we just have to be brave enough to ask for help and admit that we are scared in order to be reassured, encouraged or find an alternative solution.”

    I recently spoke to a dear friend of mine who shared this story with me. Lesley was invited to guest speak in the USA to over 400 women. She explained how anxious she became, to the point of not wanting to step onto the plane in the first place. She just wanted to turn around and go back home, but instead, she proceeded. At her UK stopover, the fear came back, and Lesley tried to convince herself that remaining was better than completing the flight to LA, as this apprehension increased. She went and succeeded in delivering her speech to the 400+ women!! This feeling of fear can be also used as a sign that you are ready to move, and as a sign to take action. It becomes your body’s way of telling you to push outside your comfort zone and expand your limit line.

    Quoting from Lesley’s Instagram page:
    ‘When you feel the chaos and overwhelm, know that your next move is still a choice you get to make. The darkness inside is not to be avoided or hated. That within it there is a gift. It is your soul calling you to courage. Through it there is a strength in you that you haven’t even met yet. A desire for greatness that is pulling you through. Breathe. You Will Make it!’

    What powerful encouragement – we need to be in tune and listen to our own inner voice and gut instinct. It is usually right and steers us where we should be heading.

    ” Trust Yourself, You Know More than You Think You Do.” Lesley Calvo

    Lesley mentioned that the concept of stepping out of our comfort zones can make us feel uncomfortable, self-doubt and scared. It can cause hidden feelings from our past to resurface. This overwhelming nervousness can cripple us into non-action, provoking and deceiving us into thinking that ‘we’re ok to stay put or make no alterations to what is necessary for change’.

    If we take our health as an example: When we know we are not well, our body will constantly tell us we have pain or discomfort. Instead, we pretend, make excuses, ignore the warning signs that stop us from changing old habits which could eventually have longer-term and detrimental effects. Imagine if we all made small changes that could actually improve and extend our Healthy Life Expectancy? Here are some words of advice:
    1. Be honest with yourself and admit you are unable to do certain things on your own;
    2. Seek out those who can genuinely help you reach your goals, even if it’s one small step at a time;
    3. Be kind enough to give yourself the time and space to reach what you’re capable of doing; and
    4. Notice how much stronger, braver and capable you are of becoming.

    What other techniques can we apply to help us overcome the stress that consumes our mind? There are a few things we can do to assist the improvement of our overall well-being:
    1. Take on a relaxing form of exercise, like Yoga or Pilates. This can help release endorphins in the brain which not only lift our mood but act as natural pain-killers.
    2. If you’re able to take on more, do dance-related exercise which will increase your heart rate and improve your overall fitness;
    3. Some find meditation and prayer their personal choice for a peaceful mind, as well as dealing with anxiety and stress;
    4. For those willing to try Acupuncture, this technique can free blockages to the energy flow in your body;
    5. Having regular massage can assist with releasing knots and built-up tension, particularly the neck, shoulders and lower back;
    6. Ensure your diet is full of the necessary nutrients, which will help your brain deal with stress, and assist your body’s total functionality;
    7. Seek techniques like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help deal with stress and depression that can have a negative effect on your body;
    8. Write your thoughts and feelings in a diary to keep track of what is causing stress;
    9. Connect with people, friends, nature, taking time out to be around and with those that make you happy;
    10. Use your blends and essential oils to improve your overall well-being, reduce the feeling of anxiety and stress on the body.
    11. Stress can affect our whole body, from digestion, skin and hair loss too.

    Writing lists is something I have been doing for a long time, and I found that it frees my mind from stressing or over-thinking particularly whilst I sleep. Eating healthier and slower, being more conscious of what is consumed can also prevent your body from overworking and becoming sluggish. The food awareness tends to go out the window whilst we’re socialising, travelling and in company with others, enjoying what life and adventures have to offer, though the reconnecting element can be a wonderful key element to overcoming stress.

    Pampering yourself with deep tissue massage can release built-up tension and relieve knotted areas. Speaking to friends who know you, offering words of encouragement and support during your time of anxiousness can be a huge step towards a peaceful mind.

    Be aware that stress affects our bodies. Our hormones can become imbalanced as the blood flow to our skin, hair, teeth and throughout the body is hindered. A common reaction to stress is Eczema, Acne, Hives, Psoriasis, Rosacea, gum disease and hair loss. Trying to get our body back in control will help overcome this. Often, simply controlling the foods we eat can have a tremendous result for our body’s recovery process.

    And for those that enjoy the natural things in life, there are the Essential oil blends I make, that can clear a congested nose and aid with breathing to allow a decent night’s rest. For the children, there’s the Kids Breathe Easy Concentrate, whilst for grown-ups, Adults Breathe Easy Concentrate. For headache sufferers, there’s the Blissful Minds concentrated serum, together with the Anxiety Pick Me Up inhalers. All of these products are made using 100% natural ingredients, containing no hidden nasties or chemicals in the blends.

    This year I have decided to do some things differently. I will update you in the coming months, but for now, I’m writing my lists, seeking the help of those who know better than me, asking for advice, and taking one day at a time. I hope that 2020 becomes a different kind of year and that you all get to be part of it, right here! It’s time for me to overcome those fears and just go with it. Watch this space and keep you posted.

    Testimonials 2020

    Testimonials Jan2020

    Testimonials 2020

    Starting the New Decade with Your stories & the love for your Pots of Magic.

    I hope you all had a wonderful start to the new decade, 2020. With so many events both good and bad happening around the globe, I wanted to begin our Newsletter year with happy testaments and reviews.Sharing your story with me is one of privilege and honour, especially since these are personal struggles, frustrations and persistence to reach your goals. If there’s one thing I can encourage you through this Blog is to Never Give Up.

    I’d like to share some new Testimonials that have been sent to me over the past year, when I wrote the last Testimonial Blog.Starting with the Nourishing Face Balm and Frankincense Face Serum , this dynamic duo are so wonderfully soft and hydrating, that seriously one or two drops is sufficient for your whole face to feel uplifted.

    Snippets of glee commenced coming in from various locations in Switzerland, starting with this:
    ‘My pots of pure goodness have arrived. #natural #handmadecosmetics #youngandbeautiful. I have Nourishing Face Balmand samples of products I haven’t tried before.’

    For the Frankincense Face Serum a lovely lady shared this:
    ‘I never believed anything external applied on the skin could work. But Essentially Lili has changed my belief.I have been using Frankincense Face Serum and it has worked wonders for me.My skin has a glow and looks healthy and nourished now.Thank you, Lili for such wonderful products.’

    I Love this Testament regarding Cool Eyes :
    ’I am a working mom of 2 young children with lots of stress and not enough sleep.That makes my eyes look tired all the time. I was desperately looking for products to help my eyes and feel fresher.And then I was finally advised to try this product. The Cool Eyes was Love at first smell!When I applied it, I immediately knew this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.Since I started using Cool Eyes I feel so much better during the day.If my morning gets too stressful and I forget to use it, I don’t feel as well in my body.I am addicted.I feel like it’s a product originally invented for Aphrodite And what I also love about it is that I know that it does not cause any harm to my skin.I do not need to worry about the ingredients because it’s all from Mother Nature.’ What a gorgeous post, definitely made me feel very happy for my customer.

    For the Over 50’s classy modern woman, I created Diamond Era Balm with the Diamond Era Serum.
    The ingredients chosen not only hydrate the skin, but give it an additional boost, especially if you’ve spent many hours out and under the harsher conditions of the sun. A customer writes:
    ‘I am really amazed by your balms, in particular the Diamond Era Balm.Honestly, I love cosmetics and like to think that I am pretty knowledgeable in that area.But your products are simply amazing.’

    My friend from the U.K took a chance with the Mens Aftershave Care bundle.He shared this:
    ‘The Hydrating Face Balm and Aftershave Serum are lovely.After a shave, I apply both and it’s nice and leaves the skin full of moisture all day.’

    What about for our youngsters, who are going through their hormonal changes, feeling a little anxious about how their skin is behaving and appearing?The products I suggest for this age group is the Youth Face Balm, Sunflower Cleanser and the Magic Serum as this combination not only cleanses the skin which is usually clogged, but helps re-balance and hydrated it too.I love when parents take a chance, based on the comments and feedback of others, or simply from the Testimonials given by you.It didn’t take long to receive these wonderful reviews, from other parts of Switzerland.

    ‘My gorgeous son was so embarrassed about the slight imperfections on his forehead. Lili has come to our rescue.Using Essentially Lili products daily for 3 weeks, my 13 year old son is so excited to wake up every morning for a view and review!He’s been using the Youth Face Balm, Sunflower Cleanser and the Magic Serum.His 12 year old sister is now sneaking in on the act.Thank YOU for proving products that are natural and are so easy to use.Do yourself a favour – buy / support local products that bring sunshine and health.’ The Aussie in Switzerland!’

    Another well-known Global Photographer based in Switzerland shares:
    ’I wanted to wait a few weeks or so before submitting my review, but the results were so fast that I felt compelled to write this review as soon as. We’ve bought some of Lili’s Essentially Lili’s products – the Youth Face Balm and Magic Serum Not only did Lili provide us with the instructions on best use but also how the product itself will work.In no time at all we noticed a clear difference.For what it does for the skin and psychologically for young impressionable minds, it is certainly value for money and we cannot thank Lili enough. I would highly recommend looking through her product range and seeing what will meet your needs or just give her a call.Not only does she deliver good products her service and personality matches. Such a great combination and I will continue to buy her products and enjoy her services. Thanks Lili.’

    The other products used for Acne, or Acne/Rosacea are the Evanesce Balm , Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm, Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm, together with the Magic Serum and either of the Cleansers.

    One of my first customers shares:
    ‘I’ve been using Lili’s products for almost two years now.I’ve seen a huge change in my skin, the first products which have helped my skin long-term. My husband is now using the Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm too.He’s a runner and this cold weather is harsh on his skin, combined with a busy job, his skin wasn’t great, though he’s seen a huge improvement! Effects were noticeable after a few weeks and continues. Keep up the good work.’

    I was so glad a Blogger shared her testimonial, writing:
    ’ I love these products. The Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm is one of my favourite products to use.I have been using this for about two years now. It keeps my skin nourished and feeling fresh all year long, but it feels especially nourishing during the cold winter months. On top of it, being all natural and amazing for your skin, it is great value for money. One container lasts so long!!’

    “A Satisfied Customer is the Best Source of Advertisement.”

    Another product is the Sun Kissed Balm which was created for Sunspots and discolouration, but not freckles. A customer shares:
    ‘I recently bought the Cypress Cleansing Balm and Sun Kissed Balm. Oh Wow, so good. My skin really loves them.I still suffer a break out in spots when my cycle comes around, but your potions really help to calm it all down.So thank you!’

    Another fantastic message from a woman using the Sun Kissed Balm:
    ‘Lili, I kept meaning to message.I love the Sun Kissed Balm , and think it is improving my sun damage slowly. It also seems to be somehow drying up oily spots which I have had on my temples since Spring. I love the smell and feel of the balm.

    A few months later, she wrote again, and this was definitely worth the wait:
    ‘On the first application I noticed how nice the product felt on my skin and smelt lovely.There was an improvement in the appearance of the sun-damage after a short time.I also noticed that the spots I had had all summer on my temples and hairline disappeared overnight. I thought might be coincidence from not using sun-cream any longer in the cooler weather. This week I noticed the spots had reappeared after using sun cream again. Applied the Sun Kissed Balm and they disappeared overnight! No idea which ingredients in the balm are responsible for this but know this will be my go-to product this summer!! Thanks Lili and sorry I did not spread the word sooner!!’

    The Coloured Clays work well as a weekly pampering session for your skin.Choosing between the Red for Sensitive, Green for Problem or Oily, and White for Sensitive skin, this easy to mix and apply treat helps deep cleanse your skin. This definitely beats spending a fortune on methods that can actually cause further damage to your skin. A happy customer not only uses her products with her teens, she wrote after using the Red Clay:
    ‘My skin felt so amazing all day long. It was such a treat using the Red Clay and love that it’s so easy to have pampered myself at home knowing it’s so good and natural for my skin.’

    Babies are our pride and joy, and nothing breaks our hearts more than when our little ones are suffering with their skin. With this is mind, I wanted to make skincare for kids that was not only gentle but effective for keeping it hydrated and soft all year round.Recently, my customer wrote to me about her baby girl:
    ‘I really love the products I have seen so far from you. The real only concern I have, what IF you move away some day, or for who know what reason, you stop producing?What will one do then? Returning to what we used before?Oh my god, my little 2.5 year old is already in love with the Natural Baby Moisturising Oil. Every time when I try to give her another crème, just to finish off the bottle rather than trashing it, she says, ‘Mama, No, this is not nice. I want the blue bottle body lotion.’
    Don’t you just love it when kids tell you their truth?Thanks so much sweetie, I’m really pleased you’re happy!

    Other Products in the Kids Range include for specific conditions like Chicken Pox, Molloscum Flying Warts and Bug bites / stings. A few different mums wrote about their experiences:
    ‘We used the Pox Potion , Amazing stuff!’

    ‘After dealing with these troublemakers, flying warts, I got hold of this amazing product, Go Molly . We were applying it regularly for a couple of weeks and they were going away.It was a big battle but we won.My girl suffers from low immunity and unfortunately now and then, there is a new one popping up.
    I keep the product on hand and when you catch it at the beginning, they disappear within a few days. It’s Magic!’

    ‘I love the Mozz Off , spray as it feels so much nicer on my skin than the chemical versions you can buy.I have a young daughter and I can put it on confidently knowing it is good for her skin.Also it works!!No bites since I have been applying it.Thank you Lili! ’

    For Concentrates and Inhalers , I received a few messages from happy customers:
    ‘The Anxiety Inhalers are great.My youngest loves the Kid’s one, using it when he feels stressed, and me too, actually, I love the Adults one!’

    Whilst another Mum wrote:
    ‘Hi Lili, he is doing amazingly well.No more Eczema with the Renew Balm and has no more congestion, thanks to the Kids Breathe Easy Concentrate!

    For me, no matter how old the person I’m helping is, getting the result is the ultimate goal. And these messages always make me the happiest.

    What about that irritating skin condition, Eczema.I absolutely detest it, how it makes your skin feel, irritated, dried out, swollen, cracked, bleeding, itching and so utterly annoying.The other condition similar to this is Psoriasis which can have flare ups just as bad on the skin. These both should be resolved at source, finding out why the condition occurs in the first place. Don’t ever hesitate to book the Consultation session to fast track your steps to wellness.

    Testimonials for Eczema & Psoriasis:
    ‘I often get heat rashes on my face and upper chest area. I asked Lili if she had something I could apply on it. Lili asked me if I had already moisturised after my shower and when I told her I applied Nivea, she asked me to wash it off first. Then she applied a tiny amount of Renew Balm to the areas covered in redness. A few minutes later, the rashes in the various places had all gone. I had to get myself a pot of this magic before leaving for London! Thanks so much, Lili.

    ‘I’ve had psoriasis on my scalp since I was 14, but my elbows and knees got really bad after having my first son. So for 9 years I’ve been trying all the lotions and potions from the doctors/internet/amazon etc and nothing had ever really worked. However within a couple of days using Lili’s Oasis Balm for Psoriasis. I noticed a huge improvement with less itching and then over the weeks a massive improvement in the appearance of the plaques. You only need a tiny bit of balm each time, a little goes a long way. I’ve just ordered some more!’

    ‘We started using Oasis Serum for Psoriasis on my mum’s head and she feels less itchy already. Fingers crossed that it works for her, where other medication hasn’t been able to get rid of the irritation.’

    What Your Face Reveals About You

    Acne Face Map Dec19

    What Your Face Reveals about you

    As the skin maps out your body, telling amazing truths.

    History & Genesis of these techniques:

    Whilst not exactly established in modern science, the ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine used Face Mapping to determine the individual’s health based on the acne patterns.This practise is over 3,000 years old and is otherwise known as ‘face reading or mien shiang’ which is based on the flow of energy along specific meridians throughout the body.Disturbances to this flow of energy affects the ‘Qi’, which then manifests on the face with breakouts, redness, spots, or other issues.

    Face Mapping technique observes the person’s complexion, whether there is colour, dullness, breakouts, as well as checking the expression and the health of their tongue.With Ayurvedic methods focuses on the person’s body type (Dosha) whilst Chinese medicine involves manipulating the body’s meridians.When the main organs are not functioning properly, it can affect the overall health of the body.For example, increased redness, inflammation and breakouts could be the result of poor liver health and a build-up of toxins in the liver.Other digestive organs that could cause problems include the spleen, intestines, kidneys and stomach.Skin health is also subjected to diet, lack of sleep, use of medications, emotional anguish combined with high stress levels.

    This process is similar to Reflexology.In the 1930’s, Eunice Ingham, a physiotherapist for Dr. Joseph Shelby Riley, became an advocate for Zone Therapy which she studied and used on her patients.She found that the feet responded well to the therapy due to their extreme sensitivity.Applying pressure to varying trigger points which corresponded to an area to the feet, her patients were able to feel less pain.This Body Mapping onto the feet became the Genesis of Reflexology.

    In the early 20th Century, publishing about Zone Therapy was done by Dr. William Fitzgerald, who showed how applying pressure to certain parts corresponded to other parts of the body.Dr. Edwin Bowers, his colleague, validated this theory using dramatic demonstrations. Whilst administering pressure to the area in the hands, a sticking pin was entered onto the face, corresponding to the area being treated, without causing pain.This ‘Acupuncture’ process is closely linked to Reflexology and Face Mapping, where it assists relieving the flow of energy throughout the body.Executing pressure to the trigger points related to the various organs in the body allow for the meridians to be released.

    What’s fabulous about Reflexology is an alternative therapy is that it can bring relief to so many areas, when performed correctly.
    • It can help unblock tensions built up in the muscles and organs, releasing deposits, knots and other hindrances;
    • It can assist the whole body’s natural flow and progression, from digestion to increased blood flow, allowing for nutrients to be circulated and carried throughout the system; and
    • It can work as a natural pain killer by releasing endorphins.

    Modern Uses of Face Mapping Techniques:

    Today it is generally used for helping with problems like Acne, because the flare ups tend to happen in the same locations like the chin and forehead. It can also be used to treat puffiness, lines, wrinkles, redness and rashes caused by food allergies. The face is zoned out, just like the feet in Reflexology, to help indicate what could be the underlying problems for the skin:

    • A stressed or poor functioning liver or imbalanced kidneys, stomach, bladder or spleen can result in breakouts, lines or wrinkles between your eyes and eyebrows, or the nose area;
    • Breakouts on the forehead could be related to how the small intestine and bladder functions, in conjunction with poor digestion, stress levels and lack of sleep;
    • Acne around the mouth, jaw or on the chin could be related to the stomach, large intestine and colon, as well the reproductive system being imbalanced;
    • The whole digestive system, spleen and kidneys not working efficiently, or building up toxins could result in acne appearing below the lips and on the lower chin;
    Gut related problems or inflammation of the small intestines could result in breakouts near the nostrils;
    • Spots or pimples around the cheekbones could be the result of immune issues, allergies, respiratory concerns or smoking;
    • These could also be due to hormonal issues, stress and the reactions to our immune system.

    The condition of your face and skin can determine whether or not you’re consuming plenty of vegetables, are prone to high blood pressure, drink too much coffee, don’t sleep enough or lack the vitamins required for your body to function healthily. Treating the root causes can ultimately assist with achieving an acne free life, irrespective of your age.

    Science, however believes that the ancient methods are not as useful or exact for everyone.Looking closely to the skin, asking about lifestyle and the environment you work and live in will determine a better understanding for resolving issues:

    Our lifestyles are more demanding and stressful, impacting our facial skin and its appearance;
    • Changes in the ingredients and how our foods are made, together with high levels of processing;
    • Our gut health could require re-balancing with probiotic bacteria to help eliminate the toxins clogged in the intestines;
    Imbalanced or increased production of androgenic hormones, like testosterone, can over create excess secretion of sebum, which can drastically affect how our body reacts;
    • The accumulation of sebum and bacteria inside the pores can become infected or inflamed, causing clogged skin cells, pimples or cystic acne;
    Dead skin cells can also cause blockages, creating whiteheads, blackheads and varying kinds of acne;
    Poor hygiene, sweating or not cleaning excess oils gently can affect our skin;
    Immune or allergic reactions to modern skincare, makeup and hair products can create irritations to our skin;
    • We tend to sleep less or have poor sleep habits;
    Family history and genetics can determine the time process for new skin development and likelihood of acne breakouts;
    • For some, the environment they are exposed to can cause the pores to become blocked and prone to acne breakouts;
    Exposure to the sun can irritate the skin for some; and
    • Other health issues like diabetes and poor circulation can also have adverse effects on the skin.

    Some of the above mentioned factors will have nothing to do with the results of Face Mapping and the condition of one’s internal organs.It does give an overall guide for where to begin the process for well-being, a way to promote natural health products which may not necessarily address the actual cause for the acne breakouts.

    “Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes”. Quote By Sophia Loren.

    In all things, common sense should be applied first and foremost.Start with the basics:
    • Cleanse your face with gentle products at night time, to remove environmental pollutants from your skin;
    • Remember that these can cause a build-up of dirt, accumulation of sebum which could become infected;
    • Protect your skin from the sun during the day with a decent sunblock;
    • If you have any skin infections, treat these with products that will soothe and balance the skin;
    • To prevent transferring bacteria to other parts of your face and body, try not to touch your face and skin throughout the day, unless your hands are clean;
    • Look more closely at lifestyle and diet, making changes where necessary, especially if you notice reactions or allergies to foods, drinks and other commercial products;
    • Eating a more balanced healthier diet should assist in achieving the results you want;
    • However, if the symptoms carry on despite good hygiene and healthy eating, it would be worth seeking the assistance of a consultant specialising in Face Mapping.

    In conclusion, whilst the concept of Face Mapping has been used for a long time by the Chinese and Ayurvedic practitioners, the results may not necessarily be as black and white as believed.
    A combination of poor organ functionality with lifestyle stresses, environmental and diet related issues could also be the culprits to the lack of healthy glow of your skin.Be sure to look at your overall health in a holistic way. Try to deal with stressful situations and lifestyle concerns which will ultimately make you feel better in the longer term.Take care of your skin, consume the right kinds of foods and drink water to help flush the toxins from your digestive tract.

    If you are seeking Product to help resolve Acne concerns:
    • I would recommend cleansing your skin only at night time, to remove pollutants and environmental build-ups in your skin.This allows the pores to be cleared and impurities removed.New skin cells are generated whilst we sleep, so cleansing in the mornings will remove these, which we don’t want to do. Cypress Cleansing Balm which is made with Beeswax, Butters and Essential Oils or the Oil based Sunflower Cleanser.
    • The Frankincense Face Serum is gorgeous on the skin, and has Ylang Ylang to help combat the occasional breakout;
    • However, the Magic Serum helps treat more problematic Acne prone skin;
    • For Acne/Rosacea prone skin, we have Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm and Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm if your skin needs more tender loving care due to irritation or damage;
    • For treating Acne alone, Evanesce Balm;
    • For Youths who only have Acne breakouts, Youth Face Balm;
    • For hydration, there are a few varying products: For men over 30, there’s the Hydrating Face Balm;
    • For women over 30, there’s Nourishing Face Balm; and
    • For women over 50, Diamond Era Balm.

    There will be something for everyone who wants to help deal with how their skin looks and feels.

    Hands Need Tender Loving Care

    Hands Need Tender Loving Care

    Hands Need Tender Loving Care

    In all aspects of life, they are connecting us to ourselves and each other.

    Goodbye summer and hello weather changes in the Northern Hemisphere. Whilst my family and friends are gearing up for their Spring and Summer festivities in Australia, the end of their school years and a Christmas BBQ’ing at the beach, we’re preparing ourselves for a cold one!Snow has already started to fall on the nearby peaks of Zurich Switzerland.

    The heaters in our homes and shopping centres tend to do us more harm than good. Constantly taking off our warm winter woollies in order to browse the overheated shop, before putting everything back before stepping into the chillie weather. I remember doing this when visiting my cousin in London last year … it was so frustrating taking your jackets, scarves, gloves off whilst shopping on Kensington High Street, only to have carry it whilst browsing, and put it back on before leaving the store! Do you find this annoying too?

    My advice to those who feel their skin drying out during the winter periods:
    Stay hydrated by drinking water or herbal teas. The recommended daily intake of water is based on specific age groups: Children from 5-8 years of age should have 5 glasses or 1 litre, 9-12 years of age should have 7 glasses or 1.5 litres, and from 13+/Adults, should drink 8-10 glasses or 2 litres of water.This will help flush out toxins and keep your skin looking fabulously fresh ;
    Be Gentle with your skin all the time, irrespective of what you’re doing – cleansing, shaving, moisturising. Avoid using really hot water against your hands or body as it can also dry you out, and
    could make sensitive skin blotchy. It’s better to use tepid or lukewarm water, which will prevent breaking the small veins on your face ;
    Wear breathable fibres like 100% cotton when staying warm. This will prevent unnecessary irritation, sweating, sticking or itching to your skin and body, which normally happens with synthetics, polyester and other non-natural garments.
    Keep a bowl of water in your room at night time to allow that to be evaporated instead of the moisture contained in your skin. Ensure that your heating is also turned down whilst sleeping at night;
    Leave the diffuseron with your either blend ofBreathe Easy Concentrate or Blissful Minds ;
    Apply your choice of Hand Creams and if necessary, wear your cotton gloves to keep them from dehydrating whilst you sleep.

    Product selections:
    • For Hands, choose from Geranium Hands & Body, Rosey Hemp Hands or for hands that are cracked, use Renew Balm.;
    • For Children, apply Natural Baby Moisturising Oil which is gentle enough from their faces to their feet.
    • For the Concentrates, choose from Kids Breathe Easy Concentrate and Adults Breathe Easy Concentrate or Blissful Minds.

    These Concentrated Serums are made in a Carrier Oil, making them safe to add to the bath or diffuser. They help with Congestion, coughs and headaches.
    • Ensure your body and feet are also moisturised after showering to keep the rest of your skin feeling soft.
    • Other products to keep your skin hydrated can be found in the Body Eyes Feet Hands & Lips category of the webpage.

    These Winter tips will help keep your skin feeling wonderful soft all winter long. As stated in the Newsletter, I’m discounting the Hands Products this month so that you can get your Pot of Magic and take care of your hands during winter. Your hands need Tender Loving Care.

    There is nothing more beautiful than a vulnerable heart in open hands. – ‘Goodreads.com’

    The Essential Oils contained in our all-natural Hands products include Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis Organic), Cypress (Cupressus Sempervirens), whilst the Rosey Hemp Hands contains Rose (Rosa Centifolia) Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martini).
    The Benefits of these concentrated essential oils include:

    Geranium is non-irritating, non-toxic which is wound-healing with its antiseptic properties.It helps improve circulation whilst assisting and improving the health of your skin;
    Sweet Orange is ideal for dry or problem skin types, as it’s a wonderful skin tonic that helps to decongest and removes built up toxins on the skin. Being rich in antioxidants, this promotes natural regeneration of cells, minimising the signs of ageing;
    Cypress has antiseptic properties which helps to improve tone and assists in treating varicose veins, spider veins and broken capillaries;
    Rose contains antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory compounds which make this a fabulous ingredient especially for dry or ageing skin.It helps refine skin texture and tone whilst managing irritating skin conditions like Dermatitis and Psoriasis;
    Palmarosa has skin healing and hydrating properties, which improve the condition of dehydrated skin.

    These all-natural ingredients have been carefully selected when creating the products for your skin, as their benefits are so amazing, allowing for an accelerated process for regenerating and hydrating the cells. The Essential Oils Gallery includes: Geranium flowers, Geranium & Rosey Hemp Hand Products, Rose Flowers & Cypress.

    What do I see with Touching Hands?

    In the newsletter, I added a picture of a group of hands and felt there was such a strong bond and connection with those touching each other, that it was more than just about applying a product to make it feel soft and wonderful. Lately, this has resonated so strongly with me. Perhaps this is because I live so far away from those that I consider is important to me and my family.

    What I see when I look at that picture: Love, Friendship, Assistance, Diversity, Inclusion, Help, Connections, Healing, Belief, Encouragement, Compassion, Faith, Hope, Family, Strength, Teamwork, Ability, Willingness, Listening, Guidance, Reassurance, Perseverance, Togetherness, Participation, Unity, Appreciation, Edification, Building, Communication, Trust, Security, Gratitude, Self-lessness, Humility, Sensations, Charitable, Confidence, Safety & Bonds. This list is by no means finished, but it’s huge when looking at only ONE picture.

    So what’s the fascination with physical touch, the first sensation, and language we learn. For a mother and her baby, it strengthens the attachment, encouraging security and safety. Depending on the kind of touch that is given, it can create either positive or negative emotions. As our kids get older, touch as a sign of affection is necessary to help reassure and build up their confidence. When we share our lives with another, touch becomes an important aspect of communicating, whether it’s transmitting the feeling of comfort, or more intense sensations which can cause the heart to race from excitement. We want to make sure we’re using touch as a powerful form of communication to keep us grounded and bonded together.

    However, in life lately, I have noticed that there is only a handful who are willing to reach out, grab and hang onto your hands, especially when life or situations become tough and stressful. The journey we strive on is often challenging, it can be lonely and isolating. We sometimes forget about those that helped us when we almost lost everything, or had nothing and struggled to get back up onto our feet, making it easier to reach a higher potential. I look back at some of the hardships we faced and remember with fondness those who were there, despite distance and international time zones.

    To those who have been an element of strength and compassion for my family and me, we are humbled with gratitude and appreciate your words of encouragement. You helped us believe in a bigger picture that we were unable to see during that crisis, whether it was from exhaustion or fear of the unknown.

    What I have also noticed and learned is how being proud, self-centred, lacking gratitude or appearing better than others just encourages narcissist behaviours which will cause rifts and ultimately break off those wonderful and beautiful relationships. The world is big enough for many characteristics, and I’d rather keep my eyes focused on the greater good in others, hoping that they too can assist those around them by lifting, building, strengthening bonds and making the life we live a better one.

    Always try to be the best version of yourself and let the world see Your Own Kind of Beautiful.
