No way, I am not listening- who has the time and energy to listen to one’s skin! There are innumerable pertinent issues that are more important on my ‘to do’ list, listening to my skin is surely not one of them!
You are not alone. Many of us just don’t pay heed to our ‘skin’s call’. We are more busy and caught up with things that are apparently closer and important to us. Those are the areas/ things to focus on- mind and body tells us!
Dang it! With time you feel and look haggard, have fine lines, pose quite a many wrinkles, have under eye bags, have dark circles, have hyper pigmented spots, look ashen and grey, look dull, lifeless and boring. You are showing yourself first and then the world around you on what a fine martyr you have been at the expense of your skin’s health.
You wake up from your deep hibernation and rush to try innumerable products, get carried away by advertorial brouhaha, go for treatments that promise you the most beautiful of skin and get caught in the vicious circle of spending thousands and millions to achieve beautiful skin!! Mind you, your self esteem, confidence and self image take a beating too 🙁
People, before you land down on Mother Earth with a thud there is ‘skin- hope’ for you. You need to first manifest in your mind and actions that your largest organ needs attention and TLC. Get into the habit of knowing the status of your skin, knowing its health, learning how to listen to your skin and act on what she needs. Its time to wake up from your induced inebriated, hibernated state and listen to your skin with the help of the dermograph.
