This thing about you that you think is your flaw – it’s the reason I’m falling in love with you.
Love Your Skin
All human faces have some flaws, as nothing is perfect. This does not make them any less beautiful. Being human is beautiful and beauty really does radiate from the inside out. Knowing this and embracing this about yourself will make it so much easier to fall in love with your own skin. That said, it never hurts to give nature a helping hand.
It is your skin. Your face. Your image. Loving yourself and your skin will help you to have a better relationship with it. Taking care of your skin and helping it to look its best will assist your heart in moving toward loving it.
The Lesson of Narcissus
In this case, the idea of loving yourself is much better than the type of vanity and narcissism that is the thing of Greek mythology.
Narcissus was a hunter in Greek mythology, son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Liriope. He was a very beautiful young man, and many fell in love with him. However, he only showed them disdain and contempt. One day, while he was hunting in the woods, the Oread nymph Echo spotted him and immediately fell for him. When Narcissus sensed that someone was following him, Echo eventually revealed herself and tried to hug him. However, he pushed her off and told her not to disturb him. Echo, in despair, roamed around the woods for the rest of her life, and wilted away until all that remained of her was an echo sound.
Nemesis, the goddess of retribution and revenge, learned what had happened and decided to punish Narcissus for his behaviour. She led him to a pool; there, the man saw his reflection in the water and fell in love with it. Although he did not realise in the beginning that it was just a reflection, when he understood it, he fell in despair that his love could not materialise and committed suicide.
In that fable, the problem comes with loving yourself above all others, to the detriment of any other aspect of life. The reality is that it is good to love yourself. You only have one body to utilize and enjoy in this lifetime. When you love yourself you are taking care of yourself, your body, your mind, and your skin. Go to the mirror, take a look at yourself, respectfully fall in love and treat your skin like the royalty it is – exceptionally beautiful in the making.
Taking Care of Your Skin
Beautiful skin is healthy skin. It is this healthy skin that you will most easily love on yourself. According to VeryWellHealth.com, there are 4 distinct, but related, components:
- “Even color. Consistent color is a sign of youthful, healthy skin. Studies have shown that consistent, even skin tone is a key element of attractiveness. As a matter of fact, the consistency of skin color is considered more attractive than having a certain skin color. Unfortunately, even skin tone starts to fade with age, as accumulated sun damage starts to take hold and create age spots and other signs of unevenness.” To help prevent this from occurring, wear sunscreen on exposed body parts every day and use SABRINA Collagen Rx Plus face cream.
- “Smooth texture. Healthy skin looks and feels smooth. If you look at healthy skin up close, the surface appears to be regularly irregular. This means that the skin is not completely smooth like glass, but has tiny peaks around hair follicles and pores, and tiny valleys in between the peaks. These peaks and valleys are consistent throughout the skin, giving it a uniform appearance. Unhealthy skin, however, does not have a uniform texture.” Like with color, SABRINA Collagen Rx Plus face cream will help to give you the smooth and firm texture that makes your skin beautiful.
- “Hydration. Healthy skin is hydrated skin. You’ve probably heard that you should drink eight glasses of water a day. Drinking water is vital for good health, but you definitely don’t need to be drinking eight glasses of the stuff a day. A good rule of thumb to follow is to drink half of your body weight in fluid ounces. For example, if you weigh 130 pounds, you should try to drink at least 65 fluid ounces of water a day. This will help keep your entire body—not just your skin—in great condition.” Hydration also comes from moisturizer; SABRINA Collagen Rx Plus is the best moisturizer you can buy.
- “Normal sensations. If your skin is healthy, it shouldn’t feel like it’s there. You shouldn’t notice it unless you’re looking into a mirror. You shouldn’t feel any unusual or uncomfortable sensations. For example, has your face ever felt dry and tight after washing it? Dryness and tightness are unusual sensations, and in that case, those sensations were triggered by a cleansing product that is too harsh for the skin.” The antioxidants in SABRINA Collagen Rx Plus will feed your skin with the compounds needed.
It is also really important that you develop and maintain a good skin care routine. That should include cleansing with a gentle cleanser. Harsh soaps are not good for your skin and will not make you look or feel beautiful, so use cleansers that are made for your face. Exfoliate regularly, and moisturize daily. Adding collagen, antioxidants, and green apple stem cells will help you love your skin for many years to come – as you watch the flaws in your skin diminish with the use of this amazing skin care product.
