Fresh Clear Skin No Matter What Color You Are
WITCH HAZEL = Clean, Clear, Fresh Skin
Here’s a simple basic beauty tip I want to share. For fresh clean clear skin no matter what color or complexion you are try witch hazel. If you want that fresh crisp look no matter what age you are, keeping your skin clean is a must! I believe in looking your best no matter what age you are?
Good clean skin starts with moisturizing yourself from the inside out. Drink plenty refreshing and wonderful H2O! The recommended amount is at least 8, 80z glasses of WATER per day! I always order water when eating out and ask for extra lemon slices. Lemons give your water a fresh taste and are also a natural appetite suppressant. Water also flushes out the toxins. Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruit!
Each morning after showering and in the evening before retiring try this. I use a clean jumbo cotton ball saturated with Witch Hazel to thoroughly cleanse my face and neck area. It wonderfully cleanses, refreshes and tones your skin. Witch Hazel; also known as Hamamelis virginiana is a natural astringent! It contains no artificial ingredient or dyes. It is produced from the bark of this North American shrub that was widely used by Indians who passed this information on to the settlers. It has additional therapeutic remedies. As an extra perk its good for after shave, minor swelling, insect bites, varicose veins and minor cuts & bruises!
I recommend drinking more water and less soda. More natural fruit juices and less wine and alcoholic beverages.
Witch Hazel is also Dermatologists tested and recommended! A real beauty essential! So ENJOY!!!
Whenever you are amidst spiritual warfare or when a crisis arises, it is important that you seek and learn to “BE STILL.” Being still does not mean that you are unconcerned or oblivious to what is happening. You are not simply just doing nothing. Nor is it a delusional state of unconsciousness rendering being in denial. You are not having erroneous illusions of grandeur. You are not being self-centered. Quite the contrary. You are God centered! Your spiritual awareness is actually heightened. It is a non combative state.
During spiritual warfare or a crisis, usually there is much stress. People often respond in ways that are counterproductive. One will tend to make hasty decisions and become easily angered. Over indulgence in drugs, alcohol, or some other substance or unfavorable activity is not advised. You may even become passive since there is a lack of coping skills. Instead it really is very important to be responsible. Instead strive to be more attentive. Be alert to your surroundings as well as those about you. Learn to become flexible and resilient, so you will not get towed along. Being still is a state of mind that helps you remain focused. Staying in a cognizant preferred chosen calm state of tranquility. Not walking in weakness, but making a sincere attempt to submit to a disciplined practice of walking in “meekness.” Here your faith and trust is rooted and grounded in the Lord.
You seek to be led by the Spirit!
It helps sometimes to also keep a sense of humor about it all. Just know, a bit of appropriate laughter is a good antidote for the soul. Laughter helps to keep things within a healthy responsive balance. Readily enlist earnestly the opportunity to “pray unceasingly.” To be aware that the often orchestrated situation at hand, really wants you to “act out” or respond in an unseemly, improper or inappropriate carnal manner. Which really only wants to cast you in an unfavorable light to simply mar your testimony.
Take a few moments of personal Worship and Praise!
Having the Lord within your life truly does make all the difference in the world! It is quite splendid! As we grow in His grace we learn to respond or not respond by embracing the Fruit of His Spirit! You care more, but react less impulsively. Your desire is to please Him as well as your commitment to Him increases as well. You learn to incorporate “Praying without ceasing” into all areas of your life. This conscious state of being keeps you connected to the Lord. You choose to focus on the Lord rather than get pulled away from your center.
Know that there is always spiritual warfare all about us even in the midst of corporate worship!
One must learn to depend and call upon the Lord wherever we may be. This is often in an inaudible way, momentarily and meekly inwardly bowing, knowing that your heart becomes an immediate altar. Since we cannot avoid crisis learn to invite God into the messiness about you. It is possible as the Word says; “to be angry and sin not.” Trusting and knowing that God knows your heart and always hears your cries. Remember Psalm 27; “The Lord is my Light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid…” In His time He can and will deliver you from any and all evil! Ephesians clearly tells us to “Finally be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on your spiritual armor of God so when the evil day comes, you may be able to stand your ground…….” Ephesians 6
The Greek word for crisis is krinein, which means “to decide.” Crisis and spiritual warfare can come at unexpected moments. Usually the decisions that you have to make are life changing. decide to take some time and “BE STILL.” Know that God is always near. See this as an opportunity to put in practice what it means to exercise “patience.” His Blessed Assurance can truly be experienced, once born of His Spirit! Always keeping in mind that God knows and has everything under His complete control really helps.
Once you become a child of God it is important to get to know Him. Draw close to Him. Your ongoing up close, personal and intimate relationship with the Lord is more important than anything or anyone! Absolutely nothing can take God’s place in your life He has embedded deep within each of us a place that only He can fill. One must avidly commence to daily seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Without Him we are merely walking breathing shaped dust.
God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives. We are to read, ponder, digest, and dwell upon His Word and implement the principles therein. Our desire should be to respond in a way that pleases Him. To know the difference between the “works of the flesh” and the “Fruit of His Spirit” that is discussed in Galatians 5. We need not make excuses for sin but readily repent. Sin separates us from the Lord. His Word truly is meant to be our Life Manual! It is essentially, imperative to keep in mind that the people, situations and scenarios presented really did happen. He has given us fabulous examples. There is a plethora of wisdom in the Scriptures. So much so to a degree, that it can boggle your mind. This is why it is important that we ask for His promised Comforter to fill us, to illuminate our understanding while journeying through its tasty, appetizing, palatable pages.
