Life is all about balance. At least for me it is. I can give up a lot of things, but there are those things, that I just can’t ever let go of.
Maintaining my health and beauty are a couple of those things.
Seriously, I can be backpacking through the jungles of South America, or trekking across Africa with only a few changes of clothes in my backpack – but I will always have my stock of health,wellness, and beauty supplies. They will always be of the most top quality as I can get my hands on as well.
Yes you could say, I tend to always over pack on these products.
When you are backpacking a third world country, the chances of finding what you want is, well, let’s just say, not going to be an option. Plus I love to share, so having extra is always good for that.
I believe that if you don’t have your health and feel incredible in your own skin, you can never truly enjoy the splendors of life to the max.
Quality of life doesn’t mean being surrounded by riches. Quality of life comes from the value you place on yourself and your body, from feeling your most amazing.
Which is individual for everyone, and your current state.
Feeling amazing becomes addicting. The more amazing you feel and the brighter you shine, the more you have to share with the world and the more light you can bring to other peoples lives. What is life, health and happiness if not shared. Enriching other peoples lives is what makes life rich, and you can only bring people as high as you are in life.
In other words, if you are low, you can only bring people to that place, if you are in you a middle energy place, then you can only bring others to that place, and if you are in a very high energy place, then you get the absolute joy of bringing people to that place.
I love to see people shine, and to bring out their light from within, it is what sets my soul on fire.
That all being said, everyday I take steps.
Whether small steps, or big steps, I take self care steps. I do this to give gratitude and appreciation to my body and all it does for me. It has gotten me around the world, and healed itself time and time again from random illnesses that not only we travelers face, but we humans. The gentler and more nurturing we are to ourselves, the more efficient our bodies can heal and work with us rather then against us.
One of my new favorite self care/beauty tools that I love and that will fit perfectly in my back pack or suitcase, is the Jade Skin Roller. It is exactly what it sounds like. A piece of smooth round jade stone on a handle. There is a small one on one end for the delicate under eye areas, and a large one on the other end for rolling your general facial area.
I also love it because its a stone, and I am all about grounding and connecting with the earth and nature. So this way I am rubbing nature all over my face. Sounds weird I know. It just feels so darn good though!
The jade stone always maintains a cool state, so it has a very relaxing and cooling effect on your skin.
There are many positive effects claimed to take place from using the Jade Skin Roller. From increasing blood circulation, decreases pore size, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and promoting lymphatic drainage.
Now as I am am sure because it gently massages your face, that for that reason it would help with those things. Massage does increase blood circulation, promote lymphatic drainage, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. However being a natural tool, it will not transform you overnight.
When you use it to roll on your skin products it will help your skin to absorb the products much deeper and much quicker then without. It’s important to use quality skin care products as well. I use Celavive from Usana.
Made from botanicals, with no chemicals or preservatives, it works on a cellular level.
By unlocking your cells and promoting renewal and communication you literally grow younger week after week, and your wrinkles and uneven skin tone dramatically disappear. You can learn about celavive right here! Very exciting stuff.
Jade rolling would be what I call a small and easy step in your health care journey, but something that for myself feels absolutely wonderful! And I personally do feel a relaxing healing energy from doing it.
I mean, why rub your face with your fingers when you can use a jade roller?!
Beauty on the go, its a marvelous thing.
