How to cope with Looking like Freddy Kreuger?
1) Reading others blogs going through the same situation-not that I wish this on anyone, but misery really does love company and it helps to know I am not alone.
2)Dead sea salt-this has been the ticket for me as far as redness and inflammation are concerned. My skin is always notably smoother and less dry after a dead sea bath. I have tried epsom, but dead sea has been WAY more effective for me personally, and you can't use epson salts in the long term, but dead sea salts you can!(I actually plan on jumping in the bath right after writing this)
3)Having a Motto-"Don't make long term decisions based on short term circumstances" "this too shall pass"-whatever floats your boat, but you will need some sort of one liner to hold you through those HELL flares.
4)A search for inner beauty- I thought I was a pretty humble gal, didn't think the media really effected me much...ha what a joke that was! The second my skin started to get iffy, I was ready to jump of a balcony (a one story one of course! LOL) The only way you will get through looking like a nightmare is to find real beauty within yourself. And sadly real beauty is what many of us are lacking in this shallow world. Real beauty is exemplified in acts of kindness good character, inner joy and a love for life and people. I think out of all my suggestions-this one rings home the hardest.
I am off for the weekend! I hope everyone enjoys themselves, and try to live a some what normal life this weekend! You will be glad you did! xoxox
