Complex Problems with Complex Solutions

Hello all, it’s been a while!

I am an accomplished adult these days,

up for a promotion at work.

 

Life is so fast, I can’t believe it. Tomorrow is James and I anniversary. I was originally going to stop blogging on that day (my hilarious one where I was going to post every day), but instead I have failed that like a pro and will continue to blog about things that are awesome when I have time.

I will update on my reading list at the end of next month (August), when summer is over. So far, it’s going badly, I’ve added some books and started about three and not finished any of them because I hated them. I decided I would let myself not finish them because they are terrible and make me not like reading.)

So, for today I want to touch on a subject that I have heard about time and time again (not just from family members but from people at work two).

That subject is an issue of skin (as usual).

Skin is the largest organ in the body, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the same all over. Skin can create calluses, thin hairs, thick hairs, big pores, small pores, dryness, oiliness, flakiness, redness, psoriasis, eczema, etc ALL on one human body. There are a million reasons for skin getting this way and that, most commonly pollution, the brightness of the sun, intake of hormones, balance (or lack thereof) in diet, intake of water, extreme weather, and, you guessed it, PRODUCTS.

Even if you are being healthy and only eating good things and not being out in the sun much, your skin still has a genetic predisposition to be on the oily or dry side. On top of that, it is constantly aging. Even if you do everything, it’s still going to age, it’s just going to age slower. It is impossible to stop aging. And it is (sorry) impossible to REVERSE aging (for good).

Anyway kids, all I mean to say is you can google ingredients all day, but you have to be satisfied at some point. Whether it be coconut oil (yikes) or Tom Ford, if you are satisfied with the way your product is working for your skin, don’t change it and keep with it.

If you aren’t satisfied, maybe allow yourself to try something new and search among things that people with similar skin have loved. Sometimes dermatologists who spend millions on research have a kind of good idea about what might be okay for your skin sometimes.

Complex problems with our skin take complex solutions. Things can’t always just be solved by coconut oil.

 

Post on eye creams coming soon.

  1. I mix coconut oil with Basic H and Windex to create an all-powerful cleaning product and cure for every ill (including colic, athletes foot, and my crippling social anxiety), does that count?

    Love the post, keep it up.
