Macrobiotics: Calm and Clear

Posted by admin

by Amy Plouf

I am feeling a lot more calm lately. That is one of the purported results of the macrobiotic lifestyle. We still aren’t 100% macro around here, but we are enjoying the process. I am sure my kids are too!

In December, my face resembled that of a teenager. And I don’t mean the youthful, wrinkle free, even coloring. I was a mess of pimples.   In an attempt to rectify that, I am currently reading/studying Christina Pirello’s Glow.

In it she has a 30-Day Plan to Glowing Radiance. I am embarking on that path. So watch out, by late February I should be video blogging and wowing you all! Ok, please stop laughing.

My first step at her council is to avoid the use of chemical cosmetic products. We had already started this process, in an effort to eliminate synthetic ingredients that might irritate my children per the Feingold Program.

I also am trying really hard to become one of those girls who washes her face every single night no exceptions. This has been a lot easier since we have given up alcohol. I would get so sleepy and then personal care went out the window!

Last I am trying to use natural products to rid myself of my two vices: melasma and under eye circles. Almost every macro book recommends shiitake tea for under eye circles. My mushrooms are a soakin’ as I type. I haven’t found a natural cure for melasma yet, so for now I am gonna stop putting chemical gunk on there. You gotta wonder about a cream that can cause birth defects. Do I really want that on my skin? My mom has been telling me to nix that for years.

I am pretty sure going pure and natural with my food, cleaning products and personal care is gonna make a positive change in how I look and feel.

What do you do to look your best naturally? Are you calmer when you eat better?
I am starting to think milk really is just for baby cows.

If your skin contains too much pigment the laser could czuse your skin to overheat.
As a reminder, sunscreen is imperative when using these products
att all times. The DAT is administered with
the American Dental Association.

It’s been extensively advertised to be a less invasive, cheaper alternative.
Generally, 電波拉皮 is a method where drugs, vitamins, compounds and herbs are joined together in a fixed formulation and injected into the central area of
the skin (called mesoderm) to ruin cellulite and fat.
