It’s been a struggle to get back into writing since mom passed away (almost two months ago). I’ll attempt to write this post well, if I fail I apologize in advance.

I’ve read- scanned through more accurately- the blogs mentioned above and I’ll only add this: Christianity more times than not made me feel inferior, weak or rebellious as a women, the “world” as christians call everyone other than christians made me feel mostly vulgar, a sex object or unfit one way or another. So what’s the answer for being or feeling worthy? Focusing on ones dreams, caring for others, keeping healthy -health and cure are two different issues I’ll talk about in a future blog- and living peaceful. How do we do that? I’ll tell you how I do it, and hopefully you’ll find your way. I listen to that inner voice far more than I listen to the outer voices and when necessary supply myself with good advise from people who actually prove they care about themselves and others. Sounds selfish, right? Taking care of you first? What happens when you don’t? Slowly you break down, and those needy people find a way to get what they need someplace else meanwhile you may be left alone, in the dust, trying to heal or find a cure. I don’t speak of isolation, without a healthy support system, you’ll never make it. I speak of wisdom, ask questions, read, rest, stop judging, stop fearing, trust wisely, smile, laugh, the world is beautiful. But I digress, I’m here to talk beauty, outer beauty for today, specifically creams:)

I believe that not only those fighting some horrid diseases need to keep their beauty products non-toxic, but everyone should. It’s true- just like all other products- many organic, vegan, non -toxic products may not give you a certain look of a certain celebrity but you should try to look like yourself anyway.

Below are the products which help me along as I walk towards the inevitability of old age.

I LOVE!!!!! creams. I’m not a make-up person, can’t stand the feeling of a cake on my face, or some oily mask I can mess up with one touch or a good cry (laugh-cry). I’m one of those women who cares about the quality of my health and beauty from inside out and when needed I add make-up lightly. I love a natural sun kissed look:) I’ll talk about make-up some other time, it will be a short post for sure:)

1.The cellfood oxygenating skin gel is a new product for me (B-day gift from my in-laws:) but Ioved it right away. Whenever I start with a new product I usually apply it on half of my face to see the difference- if I can see one- and I try to avoid the jokes Chet makes about the possible unpleasant results. This brown looking gel resembling jello consistency made my skin feel like it was breathing RIGHT AWAY. I just got a facial scrub, blood flooding to the surface for few minutes, feel. I don’t use night creams because I believe in letting my skin breath at night, but this one is better during nigh-time. To use it: tap lightly with your fingers the jello consistency as if to wet your fingers –don’t dig in-then rub it in your skin. If you put too much it becomes a mask. https://www.amazon.com/Cellfood-Skin-Care-Oxygen-Highest-Quality/dp/B0015B2RAO/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2OYDUJ1F08LMZ&dchild=1&keywords=cellfood+ox

2.The rose restoring facial serum has a golden oil like look and feel, it comes with a dripper so it’s easy to apply to face and neck. I have a mixed complexion, dry on the edges and oily in the middle, and this will feel a little oily for an hour but eventually it absorbs. I love how quickly it hydrates and makes my skin look even and radiant. It’s also inexpensive:) https://www.amazon.com/Dr-Organic-Restoring-Facial-Organic-Extract/dp/B07X1RJHPB/ref=sr_1_2?crid=58S51J1UXCS3&dchild=1&keywords=dr+organic+rose+serum&qid=1616802359&sprefix=dr+organic+rose+%2Caps%2C339&sr=8-2

3. I love Andalou Naturals brand but not all of their products work for me. The Probiotic+C Renewal Cream Brightening is one I does. I don’t use it everyday, I prefer the first top ones over this one. https://www.amazon.com/Andalou-Naturals-Probiotic-Renewal-Cream/dp/B0052P10P2/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3M0C1WUOGIXJG&dchild=1&keywords=andalou+probiotic+c+renewal+cream&qid=1616798738&sprefix=andalou+probiotic+c%2Caps%2C228&sr=8-5

I love three other products (not pictured here):

4.Avene PhysioLift Smoothing Emultion, just amazing! https://www.amazon.com/Eau-Thermale-Av%C3%A8ne-Physiolift-Smoothing/dp/B0163MIU8W/ref=sr_1_6?crid=1FGJM1HI89009&dchild=1&keywords=avene+physiolift+day+cream&qid=1616801116&sprefix=avene+physiolift%2Caps%2C251&sr=8-6

5.Aroma Actives Lift and Firm Skin care. https://www.amazon.ae/Aroma-Actives-Serum-Fluid-Ounce/dp/B01MXJ29AM

6. Om Pur Pomegranate Vitamin C repair serum. This one is my favorite. I love the smell and the feel of radiant skin this product gives me but it’s hard to find:( I hope Om Pur will start production soon as all their products are out of stock.
