Weekly Skin Care Tip from Dom

Today’s Topic
•Teenage Acne•
If you have a teenager in your life, chances are good that he or she will struggle with breakouts and we have all been teens right…UGH

The American Association of Dermatology estimates that 85% of teenagers will have acne at some point.
It all seems too unfair–just when kids are hypersensitive about their appearance, acne shows up, wreaking havoc on their self-esteem and confidence. For young people especially, the benefits of clear skin are undeniable. Unfortunately, acne is one of the trickiest skin disorders to treat. But, if you have all the facts and a variety of realistic options, you can help your teenager greatly reduce or even eliminate breakouts.
Here’s what you need to know to put together an effective, easy-to-follow skin-care routine that addresses all the causes of acne. And as your skincare consultant, I am here to help and guide you and your loved one every step of the way. Your teenager, believe it or not, will thank you!
Why Do Teenagers Break Out?
Mostly because of raging hormones: During the teen years the body produces excessive amounts of hormones, especially androgens, which trigger oil production. The more oil produced inside the pores, the more likely the pores will become clogged and rupture. Bacteria, called Propionibacterium acnes, begin to multiply, resulting in inflammation and causing a red, swollen, and unsightly pimple.
Not cleaning their face twice a day: Although dirty skin is not a cause of acne, if you have acne and you don’t cleanse your face twice a day, there will be a build-up of dead skin cells that will clog pores and cause breakouts. For girls: Not completely removing your makeup at night will definitely make matters worse.
Applying pore-clogging moisturizers, facial masks, foundations, or concealers: Many girls pile on the makeup, especially concealers, or they use cream moisturizers with pore-clogging ingredients. I can help your teen select products that are far less likely to cause irritation.
Inconsistent skin care: The secret to clearer skin is to stick to a consistent, effective skin-care routine.
Hair products: Heavy application of styling products to the hair that falls on your face can cause breakouts in those areas. Keeping the hair off your face can help a great deal.
How Can I Help My Teen Establish a Skin-Care Routine?
Streamline their skin-care routine: It doesn’t take a multitude of skin-care products and a complex routine to combat acne, and for teens such a process is probably too elaborate for them to follow anyway. All they need to do is use a well-formulated cleanser, toner, exfoliant, and topical treatment, plus a sunscreen every morning and possibly a lightweight moisturizer at night.
Help your teenager set realistic expectations by discussing what is and what is not possible from skin-care products.
Don’t forget their fragile egos: Peer pressure is brutal for teens, and their desire to fit in dictates a lot of their behavior and choices. That’s why acne breakouts can deliver a devastating blow to your teen’s self-esteem. Acne is difficult at any age, but for teenagers it is tormenting. For teens, a pimple is not merely a pimple.
If your teen or loved one or someone you know is suffering from acne, I’d love to help them find the best products to help with this life altering issue.

2 Months (Almost ) of Miracle Mornings

The 15th will mark 2 straight months of waking up earlier for my Miracle Morning. On weekdays this means 5am! (Read Hal Elrod’s Book Miracle Morning )
My routine is still the same 1) Meditate/pray for 5 minutes-This is the hardest step for me but Im learning. 2) Affermations- I have 30 affermations I read ouf lout ie “Im enough! I deserve goid things. My business is exploding. Im financially free.” 3) Gratitude Journal- I write 10-15 things Im grateful for. 4) Personal growth reading 15-20 minutes- right now I’m reading The Secret and a leadership devotional by Zig Zigler. 5) I envision what I want my life to be like and use my vision board as a guide

My vision board or part of it at least.
I choose to do my exercise at a different time of day.
In two months my team has grown. My income has grown. I have grown!  I will definitely continue this practice and can’t wait to update soon.

Fear of Chocolate

As everyone who becomes an intuitive eater does, you start facing and accepting “bad” foods.
Last week I met a client at an ice cream shop!!! I was so anxious freaked out. I couldn’t even choose a flavor.  I hadn’t had any processed sugar since May! I asked the girl scooping the ice cream her favorite flavor and asked for a small dish of that….I ate it and didn’t die. I had a sugar headache and knew next time maybe Ill only need to eat a bite or two.
Today I conquered another fear…chocolate

image

I ate some Hershey chocolate and I am ok. Im not craving more. I gave myself 150% permission to eat some and moved the heck on.
So fears are being abolished. Food is being put in its proper place and Im feeling free!
