Recipe for Your Best Skin

D1197BEC-9508-4DF9-8D2E-8261F17CD89FRecipe for Your Best Skin

There are many factors which affect how your skin appears. Some are not in your control, but many are. Your exposure to the sun is one of the main risk factors for skin damage and aging. Limiting your skin’s exposure can be augmented by using sunscreen liberally. Smoking also causes microvascular damage that ages the skin and should be avoided. A healthy diet with lots of water and one that avoids processed carbohydrates and unhealthy fats seems to be best for the skin. Stress reduction with plenty of rest also optimizes skin health. These things along with good daily skincare are critical to having your best skin. My fun job is with Rodan and Fields Skincare. Our products are number one in North America and Australia and will soon launch into many other countries. This skincare has changed my skin and inspires others to use our products. The great part is that I can have my best skin and have residual income while helping others have their best skin.

Faith

EC19608F-2DE2-43F8-995E-54E2D0400741“He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Faith
Today it is gorgeous in the mountains of Virginia; and, as I sit on my deck and look at a view similar to the above painting by my daughter ( http://www.sincerelysarahstudios.com ), I reflect on my own Faith and how much it has grown and still needs to grow. Truly just as a tiny mustard seed grows with the proper environment over time to be a huge plant, our Faith can grow so strong over time that nothing is impossible.

Abstract

7F1D28E6-8BEB-4CB8-991F-3B6B5E5E329C“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭14:33‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Abstract is defined as not associated with any specific instance. It can be interpreted in many ways, dependent on the observer. For example, the painting above will be seen differently by each person. While forming an opinion on art is a fun and benign thing, not all abstract concepts are so light-hearted. Recently we have witnessed what we think is child abuse, but the parties, in question, will certainly have their own story with an entirely different point of view. We think that their attorneys have already shown how twisted they can make reality. I always suspect The Master of Confusion when black and white suddenly turns gray.

Paradise

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Paradise
As humans, some days will be dark and dreary.  I know that as I pass through the years, there are many great times, but naturally there are bad times as well. We have to take them as they come and know that we are being prepared for Paradise, where every moment is perfectly Divine. When you are assured of this destiny, bad times are more tolerable.

Contentment

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.””
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Contentment

One of my biggest concerns is my self-realization that I am never content. I always feel like I should do better, have more, accomplish more…blah blah blah. And, though I have been blessed far beyond any reasonable expectation, I still view myself as not worthy because I have not achieved that certain goal. Perhaps societal pressures have left their mark on me—I have forgotten what really matters in this life. And then I remember God loves me regardless, and I praise Him for peace.

Old Age

D9FEFD59-F469-47E1-ACA1-EBA2D7058AB4Old Age
There are many terms to describe people of older age: elderly, geriatric, senior citizen, golden years, etc.
What exact age is old is somewhat arbitrary and depends on one’s perspective. In our general population, we do not have proper respect for our elderly, in my opinion. We tend to focus on our youth and discard our seniors. But the essence of the elderly is wisdom—they have lots of experience and could offer extremely helpful advice. I have always enjoyed the elderly and have learned much from them.
