Comments Off on Skincare Resolutions – Are they still relevant?

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Do YOU still even think about New Year’s resolutions?  Those things some of us promise we’ll revolutionize in an amazing way about life, love, work, and everything in our personal universe?  I’ve noticed that it seems almost passe to host this New Years resolutions mindset in 2019.  Talk of resolutions has gone into hiding.

In it’s place, there’s a lot of talk about commitment to new ways of looking at things.  Or, thinking about how we want to feel?  How we want to care for ourselves to help us to feel the way we want to feel?

Is this the same thing as resolutions with a new spin, or does it truly inspire something more innately successful at motivating, with the secret potential to motivate in a way that resolutions fail to do?

What do you think?  Do you love writing down a to-do list of resolutions, or would you prefer to dream about how you’d love to feel in an ideal world of your making, and then take baby steps, or jumps if you like, into creating that world?

Whatever works for you – jump in, let’s shake things happen, make some dreams come true in 2019!

If resolutions work, super!  If a new mindset (committing to wearing new glasses, so to speak), looking at your life from a fresh perspective or reflecting upon how you want to feel, and then taking actions to make you feel this way seems intriguing, why not try it on?

However we choose to think about our lives in 2019, why not toss our skincare routine into the mix?

How we look is more than skin deep.  It’s indicative of our overall health, and expresses to the world how we feel about ourselves.  Let’s make it absolutely F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S, dig in, and have fun!

THIS YEAR, before we chat about skincare mindsets or making a list of how we’d like to feel, and a list of ways in which we can help ourselves to feel this way (yes, I’m going with that), a few mindful words:

Celebrate the beauty of who you are, inside and out. Be compassionate with yourself, how you look and feel, and all else will fall into place. → Read more

Comments Off on Holiday Stress and Your Skin

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Want to shine, shimmer and dazzle this season, but feeling like you’re sliding into overdrive?  Thanksgiving travels, or family in from out of town?  Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday,…what’s next…marketing names and games to get you out of the house and into the stores (or on-line) for uber holiday shopping.  Entertaining family and friends, and parties sweep you away on a magic carpet of energy and excitement. You love all this, but it can also leave your head spinning and your skin fatigued and stressed out.

Skin, the largest organ of your body will show the first visible signs of lifestyle imbalance including excessive dryness, inflammation, acne, eczema, itchiness and irritation. Beautiful skin, at its foundation, begins with healthy lifestyle choices. Your skin is effected by every thought, feeling, emotion and action. If you are stressed out trying to do it all (in a seemingly effortless manner), chances are, so is your skin.

By the way, your mind can be comfy in de-Nile, but your skin will tell the truth.  Listen to your skin.

10 Ways to reduce and manage stress naturally this holiday season with healthy lifestyle choices (we’re talking big rewards for just a few common sense easy ideas, no major overhaul):

Comments Off on Time Out for Stillness and Reflection

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Amidst all the spiritual gratitude, bliss and goodness we share with our family and friends at this time of year, our holiday schedules begin to rev up, responsibilities to others pile up, and potential chaos can quickly send our heads spinning, creating stressful or anxious feelings which we know are not good for our skin. Stress has been shown to be at the root of many chronic illnesses, and can not only result in skin sensitivities, irritations and eruptions, but is a primary cause of premature aging.  Who wants any of this?  Not us!

Our skin, the largest organ of our body, reflects what is going on below the surface physically and emotionally.   If you notice your skin acting up, don’t panic.  Maybe it’s just time to take a look at your lifestyle choices this time of year.  Your skin is your best friend, and she’s trying to tell you something important.

Comments Off on 3 Fragrances to Recharge Mind, Body and Spirit

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

You’ve had a wonderful busy week, and now it’s time for YOU.  

Halloween costumes for my daughter, myself and our dog (what can I say, HomeGoods had an irresistible canine cow costume, which I promise wasn’t the reason I went there –  it was a tablecloth which I couldn’t find, but the costume had our dog Sugar’s name all over it, in my vision, if not in Sugar’s), bags of Hershey’s, Nestle Crunch, Snickers, Red Licorice and Starbursts  (that should be anywhere but on our dining room table within my reach – I’m chewing a lemon Starbust as I write this – yumm…),Frankenstein’s illuminated head and hands rise from his grave of leaves along our walkway…

Squirrels know it’s over.  Our large oak tree sends acorns spilling everywhere, bounty for a bevy of bushy-tailed hearty squirrels who quickly discover our outdoor pumpkins every year.  They’ve make considerable progress taking apart my daughters ornately carved, painted and decorated pumpkins, pull off the wooden witch head inserted at top to make room for mucho nibbling.  They’ll eventually make a total mushy mess of no longer recognizable Jack O’Lanterns, and only then will I remove them from the stoop. Right now, I let the viewing and feast planning to gain momentum.

I adore the only holiday that encourages you to transform  yourself into someone else for a night.  It’s primal.  It’s creative.  It’s dreamy.  It’s freaky.  It’s whoever you are or want to be, just for a night.  Like fragrance, they’re memories that I want to linger.

Sometimes, my m.o. is why not flow from one holiday to the next?  Abrupt transitions imply that one can’t wait to be rid of something that brought joy just a short time ago.   I leave old Frankenstein’s head and hands crawling out of the ground out there, long after Halloween is over.  He makes me smile.  Why not make more days feel like holidays? The calendar may say one thing, but allow your heart to feel whatever it desires.  How about you?

Okay, back to YOU TIME and fragrance chat.  We promised.  We’ll deliver.
