Learn to appreciate your Body!
ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?" God holds us accountable for what we do, eat and how we treat
our physical bodies. Remember you have only one body, and it is yours for your lifetime, take care of your body, so
that it can take care of you!
A.) Set aside time for pampering! Ladies give yourself a facial
at least once a week. If you can't afford to have it done at a spa, do it for yourself with some simple home remedies.
a.) For your eyes: peel some cucumbers and place them over your eyes while
relaxing in a warm bath, or resting. Allow at least 10 minutes.
b.) Vitamin E tablets, especially the gel is very good to rub over
the skin and facial areas.
c.) Cleanse your face, if your skin is not sensitive, use baking soda for
scrub and to cleanse your facial pores, be extremely careful around the eyes, use a cotton ball. There are facial scrubs
that can be purchased for under $2 that you can apply that are made with fruits and herbal substances.
d.) If you have dry skin, be sure to keep your face and body well
moisturized. Basic products such as baby oil, vaseline and olive oil applied directly to the body can keep those dry
itchy patches away, and make your skin glisten.
B.) Give yourself a manicure and pedicure. Although it may not
be summer time; keep those feet soft, smooth and pretty. When the boots come off, and you're out for that special evening,
you want your feet to feel and look good!
a.) Soak your hands and feet in some warm water, with lemon peel, if you're
not diabetic, Epsom salt will work wonders for tired feet in a hot foot tub.
b.) Just don't polish your nails, but keep those cuticles trimmed and nails
trimmed. Change your polish to match your outfits for those special outings, ladies be sure that your polish for hands
and nails match!
C.) Wash and cleanse your hair! You'll feel and look better.
If money is tight, get some herbal shampoo, get in the shower and "wash that dirt, right out of your hair!" Hair is
a lot more easier to manage when it is clean and smells fresh.
a.) Avoid using a lot of heat on your hair. Too much will make it
dry, brittle and easy to break. You can always cut it, your hair will grow if it is healthy and treated with TLC.
b.) While weave looks good, all that glue is damaging your scalp and hair. If you
must put a weave in, get it professionally done and ask them to sew it in. Be sure that you have it taken out professionally,
or by someone who will take the time to do it right and not just yank out your natural hair! Continuous use of glue
on your scalp will prevent your hair from growing in those areas and may cause hair loss in patches in the future. So
think twice, what you do today, you may have to live with tomorrow!
