I have a confession to make.
A couple of months ago I was getting really bummed about my skincare regimen. Tell me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure we all get tired of our "stuff" for one reason or another.
For me, it's often because I'm enticed by something new and improved, something with prettier packaging or the thing I'm tired of just isn't serving it's purpose any longer. That last reason alone is certainly a valid reason for replacement, wouldn't you agree?
But what happens when that thing you loved, the thing that just doesn't seem to be serving it's purpose any longer. . .is something you want to believe in and truly still care a lot about?
Well, surprisingly sometimes you cut your ties and move on.
Here's what happened.
The reason I wasn't happy with my Pure Haven skincare turned out to be that I wasn't using them properly. All of a sudden, no matter what I did, my skin was just really dry. Flaky dry!
The healing of my dry skin was one of the top reasons I had fallen in love with Pure Haven Essentials almost a year ago, making this predicament especially disappointing.
So, I thought, "I'll take matters into my own hands. I guess "natural" can't banish these dry skin blues for me any longer."
So I set out to use a new moisturizing face mask, a different cleanser and a handful of times I tried a new exfoliator. None of these were natural, non-toxic or organic, however, they did helped me.
Then my face became itchy and then broke out.
I think that because I'd used chemical-free skincare exclusively for over a year, these fancy and expensive products products I decided to try again were now especially irritating. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Let me ask you a question, dear ladies (and gentlemen), "do you think it seems fair that we ask our bodies to get used to chemicals?"
While the answer is clear, I admit I had a lapse in good judgement. I thought it would be alright. So I kept on for a month until my skin was worse off than before and finally. . .
My dry skin had been trying to tell me something from the start. It was telling me to give it more moisture.
Yes, a simple cry for help. So I switched back to using solely Pure Haven Essentials and worked on adding more moisture in the the form of, well, more moisturizer.
I DOUBLED the amount of cream in both the morning and night and my issues resolved within two days if not less.
It was amazing! More is more!
More moisture is more moisture and as I wrap this up I have one more thing I want to be clear as day with you about. . .
I have a video on my Youtube channel where I explain how I conserve my product use so that I don't have to buy it as often. I willingly have shared this tip with clients, as well. After all, the Pure Haven collection in our shop is very pure and very potent. I've found that a little truly does go a long way.
But! While I continue to stand behind "less is more," today I have to let you know that sometimes, in fact, more is more.
