Are You Comfortable in Your Own Skin?

Are You Comfortable in Your Own Skin?

Being comfortable in your own skin means you have a certain degree of confidence in yourself and your abilities. And that belief plays a crucial role in the development of self-love.

Being satisfied with the way you look is important. But do you know what else is equally important? Being comfortable in your own skin. Loving yourself right where you are in this moment is EMPOWERING and life-changing. But it is not always easy. So how do you get there?

Being comfortable in your own skin doesn’t mean that you are complacent with yourself or your place in life. It doesn’t mean that nothing about you needs change or improve. What it does mean is that you have a certain degree of confidence in yourself and your abilities. And that belief plays a crucial role in the development of self-love. When you feel good about yourself, you stand taller, look better and act accordingly. And that confidence shows in your actions, personal demeanor and interactions with others.

Learning to love who you are means a certain degree of acceptance of your flaws and your weaknesses. It’s OK to embrace your imperfections. Those characteristics are what make you uniquely you. If everyone was perfect then the world would be incredibly monotone and BORING!

Be kind and stop comparing yourself to the unrealistic beauty standards set by society. Social media brings out the worst of these unhealthy comparisons. But so much of what we see on social media is an illusion. So find the best parts of you and show them off without thought to how they rate next to someone else. Flaunting what you have and feeling proud of yourself is very important. Break away from the shackles of unrealistic beauty standards and appreciate what you offer to the world.

Simple Steps to Becoming Comfortable in Your Own Skin:

  • Build Your Own Self Worth
  • Stop Seeking Validation from Others
  • Honor the Body You Have
  • Maintain a Positive Spirit
  • Surround Yourself with Positive People
  • Tune Out Media Ideals
  • Practice Gratitude

Once you decide to be comfortable in your own skin and accept yourself, stick with it. Try telling yourself two things every morning: 1) I am enough.  2) I am not everyone’s cup of tea and I’m OK with that.

Make a promise to stay true to yourself. The more you choose to do you and be you, the easier it will get. Soon enough being comfortable in your own skin will feel natural. Being you will be enough. And it should be because you are MORE than enough.

The Vampire Facial: Not Just for Hollywood

The Vampire Facial: Not Just for Hollywood

Who Should Get One

There has been a lot of hype about vampire facials lately. So-called “extreme” facials have become increasingly popular recently. They bring a lot of attention to thirsty celebrities trying to rack up the likes on social media. But honestly, the vampire facial is incredibly beneficial. It helps minimize the appearance of specific signs of aging. This treatment helps repair the skin, smoothing wrinkles, reducing dark spots and improving texture.  You’ve probably heard about Kim Kardashian getting one and thought, WTF? But hear us out.

What It IS:

A Vampire Facial combines microneedling (also known as collagen-induction therapy) with topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood. Also known as a PRP facial, this skin rejuvenation treatment creates an overall improvement in skin texture and tone. It can also reduce scars, correct hyperpigmentation, tighten lax skin, smooth fine lines and minimize the appearance of large pores.

What It DOES:

A Vampire facial works in two ways. First, microneedling creates tiny fissures in your skin, triggering a wound-healing response that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. Then, to further boost skin cell regeneration, the growth-factor-packed PRP penetrates the skin through the microchannels created via microneedling.

The PRP from your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets that contribute to essential growth functions and healing. The growth factors in PRP contribute to cell proliferation and differentiation. The PRP amplifies collagen production, increases cell turnover, and spurs growth of new blood vessels, resulting in longer-term rejuvenating effects.

You will see increased radiance within days of your treatment, and benefits increase over four to six weeks as the production of new collagen increases.

Studies show that microneedling and enhanced PRP treatments like the Vampire Facial can improve everything from sun damage to acne scars.

Pros

  • The treatment is fast (typically taking less than an hour) and requires little downtime.
  • The Vampire Facial maintains a high praise from those who receive it, with many praising their results especially after multiple treatment sessions.
  • It’s suitable for all skin tones and types. Still, to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation, providers may more shallowly microneedle and/or pretreat patients who have olive or brown skin tones.
  • There’s little chance of an allergic reaction, since PRP comes from your own blood. In a review of several studies on PRP for skin rejuvenation, no adverse events were reported.

Cons

  • Even with numbing cream, the treatment can be mildly painful.
  • Several monthly treatments are recommended, to see full benefits, followed by maintenance sessions every six months.
  • You’ll have some restrictions on exercise and other activities for a few days following your treatment.
