Can your mood really affect your skin?
The answer - we believe - is a big, fat YES.
(And vice-versa too… your skin can affect your mood big time! We’ve both had our fair share of skin battles Aaron’s eczema and Phoebe’s acne - so we’re all over this one.)
We wanted to ramble about something pretty important today. It’s important because it has to do with how you feel about yourself, and how happy you are just being you. Here goes… The idea of perfect skin is a myth. What!? Yup. We know. That’s the last thing you expected to hear from a skincare company, right?
Alrighty. Let’s stop what we’re doing and take a big, collective deep breath. There’s something in the air right now that is poised, waiting to send everyone into a perfection-seeking frenzy. Or maybe the frenzy has already got you? (Like it got us??).
So it's Saturday afternoon, I'm sitting at the Happy Shed all on my own. It's farrreeeezing. Aaron is at home with the boys and I'm rugged up, typing as quickly as I can so my fingers don't freeze. But then inspiration strikes... I need some of my elixir... No, not a bottle of rum. I need my turmeric latte.
Your skin can take a real beating from air conditioning, heaters, dry air, blistering winds and humidity. Cue: flaky skin, new lines, dullness, breakouts, or even yelps of pain! Sound familiar?
Happiness is the best thing in the world. It’s a feeling that’s instantly transforming, empowering and uplifting. It’s a feeling that inspires the deepest belly laughs and the brightest of smiles but as much as we wish it was, it is not always permanent.
Febfast, Dry July and Ocsober have now made one quarter of the year dedicated to giving up booze. The big reason behind it all is raising money for worthy causes, but there could be some fringe benefits for taking part.
Sting was definitely before his time. The whole wearing-sunglasses-at-night-thing says it all. We’re hearing you ask… “Why on earth would I want to wear my sunglasses at night?” Well there’s a good answer, and it has to do with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs).
