Thank you #gaiaherbs for creating a supplement for underactive thyroid. #levothyroxine has helped me since 2013 to be somewhat normal; decided to give #synthroid a chance this year and could not take the negative side effects! My prayer, hope, and belief is that one day soon I won't need anything to function other than God's presence in my life. For now, I'd recommend this brand. Check out @pharmaca if you'd like to try @gaiaherbs . #hypothyroidism is real. It's one of those invisible health conditions and millions of people are suffering. Here on IG we/I focus a lot on our skin, particularly our face but to truly accomplish a wholesome care and love for ourselves we have to address all areas of health. Here are just a few symptoms of hypothyroidism #dryskin #fatigue #sexualdysfunction #hairloss #depression #infertility . FROM THE Mayo Clinic: Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland — triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) — have an enormous impact on your health, affecting all aspects of your metabolism. These hormones also influence the control of vital functions, such as body temperature and heart rate. Hypothyroidism results when the thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormones. Hypothyroidism may be due to a number of factors... . . . . . #thyroidhealth #naturalhealing #healthfirst #loveyourskin #glow #immunehealth #skincare #thyroidawareness #healthiswealth
It's only October AND all the Christmas deals and steals are popping up. I'm proud to say I've been disciplined regarding #skincaresubscription boxes this year. @thedetoxmarket September box was my first box of the year. I'm enjoying all the products I currently own. 🥰 Especially this sub box. The carrot seed oil and calendula essential hydrating cream seem to be working great for my face. Even though there's a 6 months shelf life to these products once opened, I'm confident I'll have empties prior to expiration...@naturopathica is a new brand to me so I'll provide a review at a later time. . . . . . . #skincare #naturalbeauty #nontoxic #faceoils #psoriasiswarrior #detoxbox #apothecary #glow #subscriptions #30plusskincare
#oralcare is so important to our #selfcare , agree? Thanks to a friend who recommended #goodgums powder supplement to me. My gums are in perfect condition as of my recent dental exam earlier this month. Good-gums has baking soda, French grey sea salt, vitamin c, bioflavonoid complex, myrrh gum, peppermint, cranberry and cinnamon. It's worth a try. I love this addition to my nightly oral healthcare routine. 😬 Sometimes I use as a mouth rinse and swish for 30 seconds. Other times I brush my teeth with just a few drops. @goodgumspowder . . . #selfcare #oralhealth #healthygums
It has truly been some time since I've been active on IG. I've missed all of you! 🌹❤ Well, summer is almost over. Let me know below what was your go to summer product. 💦🕶🌻 #mychelledermaceuticals Sun Protection has been my absolute favorite face sunscreen for about 2 years. No irritation, no white cast! I did try out #juicebeauty Oil Free Moisturizer and it's a runner up. You really have to rub it in (about 2 minutes) to let it blend in with your skin--especially for someone like me who has brown skin.
Feeling bright today! Hey IG Fam! 🖐 Thank you everyone for sticking around with me 🥰. It's almost officially Summer, yay!!! 🌼These 2 lovely masks are great for traveling-- #beautycounter Balancing + Charcoal mask is gentle and kind to my skin. It has a 9 months expiration date which could be a con for some. I don't mind such short expiration time because it's a travel size product. #origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask helps with clogged pores and I've used this one for a few years. It has a 24 months expiration date which leads me to believe the preservatives are stronger than Beautycounter--correct me if I'm wrong. 🤓. Overall both masks leave my skin feeling soft and clean. I do have open pores from time to time and these work well to clear out toxins from my skin. 🌼Hope everyone is having a fabulous day! Let me know if you've tried any of the 2 masks mentioned here in this post.
Look at this beauty! 💜 I've been using this little beauty for more than a few weeks--the Gentle Rice Polish is a water activated exfoliator but it's so gentle I use it as a cleanser since I've been out of a cleanser. @tatcha has a different Rice Polish for every skin type: sensitive, dry, normal to dry, and normal to oily. I'm am usually normal to oily but decided to try dry skin formula--Gentle. I try to cater more to my #psoriasis symptoms so this is working out well for me. Can we give a 🙌 to Tatcha for its beautiful packaging. A little goes a long way as well.
💃Happy Tuesday IG fam!💃 As I sit here watching Prescription Thugs on Netflix, I can't help but think of the possibility of being prescribed one drug after the other for my immune related problems. As we know health and skin care goes hand in hand. There's no way I could care more about how I look than how I feel. Anyhow--I can't believe I've stopped taking #tumeric . In the past tumeric has helped me with inflammation--specifically swelling and pain in my fingers. I've never tried this particular brand and hope my body likes it. Quick Fact: More people die from prescription drugs than illegal drugs. 😢 ✋I'm curious to know if any of you take supplements for health--hair, skin, nails etc.?
It's about time I participate in #texturetuesday LoL @inlight_beauty Super Food Mask and Line Softener Intensive Balm smell, look, and feel amazing! I believe these are from a sub box I received last Nov. Excellent shelf life so will be testing this year. These are so earthy and I love that I can read and understand the ingredients. I can't wait to give a full review! Xoxo . . . Have you guys tried any products from InLight Beauty? Any favs? . . . . . . . . . . . #organicbeauty #parabenfree #igbeauty #subscriptionbox #beauty #beautyobsessed #igskin #glow #selfcare #selflove #psoriasis #pmroutine #skincarecommunity #skincare #naturalbeauty #nontoxic #botanicaloils #luxuryskincare #iloveskincare #skincarethread
Anyone here love Kombucha? It's always a hit or miss for me when I try a new brand or flavor. I was hoping for the ginger to come through for me but it didn't with this one from @healthade 🙈🙉🙊If you're curious #kombucha is fermented tea, rich in probiotics, and is good bacteria for the gut. I can't attest to its benefits such as digestion and anti-inflammation because I don't drink this on a daily basis. . . . Side note: Self care is not only trying to keep the bumps and sagging skin at bay but it's a balance of my mental, spiritual, and physical health. I wish I knew this back in 2013 when my immune system spun out of control. I truly want everyone to take time to love themself a little more each day. To be kind, gentle, generous, and loving to YOU. You are the best person you've got! . . . Side note pt.2 lol: I'm still going to my acupuncture appointments and while I may seem all over the place with my health challenges, I believe it's possible to be healed. I have no choice but to keep pushing and trying new things. My dad did mention #acupuncture is temporary healing which feels like it is, but guess what? It feels good to feel good for a few days out of the week. Also--the one thing I haven't given 100% try is God. I have had the hardest time getting reconnected in my religious world and I do know for sure sometimes God will use situations to get your attention. But come on Lord, why me? That's what I will ask! Perhaps everything is connecting me to my purpose, perhaps I need to spread a message? I don't know. But I need get praying! ☺ . . . . I'm currently loving all the products I purchased last year and I will have to catch up on my skincare posts soon!!

My #thyroidsupport oil blend: #lemongrass #frankensence #myrrh #clove #fractionatedcoconutoil . 🦋I'm currently using this blend 3x a day to boost my thyroid. I'm becoming more and more informed and educated regarding #homeopathic treatment for overall health. If you have an underactive gland then you know the struggle. 🚫Always consult with a knowledgeable person when using essential oils. When in doubt always dilute with a carrier oil like almond or coconut. 🙏Thank you guys got following my journey and reading my posts. I will have another update soon regarding my acupuncture journey. #staytune . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #selfcare #thyroidhealth #autoimmunedisease #skincare #homeopathy #essentialoils #selflove #psoriasis #pmroutine #instaskin #365inskincare #30plusskincare #health #naturalhealing #healthyliving #acupuncture #tcm #yourbody #wellness #hormonebalance #holistichealth
Wow we are already in March! 🙀 Time really flies, and I'm thinking of Spring 😎😁. Tonight I opened this #herbivorebotanicals Orchid face oil. I'll keep you all posted on this beauty. . . . #acupuncture #update 💃 I have had 3 sessions so far! I wanted to go back because I believe in second chances within reasons. I felt rushed and brused off the very first time but my last 2 appointments went well. Post session I immediately feel relaxed and sometimes sleepy. My energy did spike on the third visit. I incurred some pain and bleeding but nothing too serious. My 2 index fingers are still stiff and painful. My energy and focus improves for 2-3 days then I begin to fall into my usual self--tired, sleepy etc. I'm really curious about acupuncture and Chinese medicine and I will go 2x a week for the next 2 or 3 months to see if this improves my #thyroidhealth I decided not to purchase the #jingjie tea at $78 for 6 days (this herbal based tea helps with inflammation, itching, swelling). Apparently the #treasureoftheeast brand are only sold to the acupuncture practitioners. I did find it on Amazon but it looks and smells different and I'm scared to drink something that might not be of quality. I will try some alternative--doing my research now. Thanks for reading! 😘💖 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #health #naturalhealing #hypothyroidism #psoriasis #naturalmedicine #chinesemedicine #inflammation #immunesystem #hormonebalance #thyroidhealing
Hello IG Fam! I apologize about my boring photog job! Lol. I've been enjoying this tea and it does not make me crash. Here's some info from @iherb, where I usually buy teas, oils and other self care products. This tea leaves are fresh, pure, and certified organic. Made of Organic roasted chicory root, organic lemongrass, organic orange peel, organic licorice. What is Vata-Dosha? In Ayurvedic principles, Vata governs the principle of air and is the energy of movement in your body. Vata can also be seen as our life-force or in yoga terms as 'prana'. Vata is the impulse to act and react. Vata-Dosha Imbalance A Vata imbalance can have some of the following indicators: Very dry skin, poor circulation, feeling easily anxious and afraid when under stress, muscle twitching and spasms, moving and talking quickly. Balance with Vata-Dosha When Vata is in balance it allows for lightness, creativity and a feeling of contentment. Our Vata tea blend is a combination of herbs and tea to help you feel grounded and relaxed. Ayurveda (Pronounced Eye-Yer-Vay-Dah) in Sanskrit means "knowledge of life." It is the art of holistic living and the oldest (5000 years old) medicine system in practice today. Ayurvedic philosophy indicates that everything in the universe is made up of 5 elements; fire, air, water, earth and space. These elements are combined under 3 "energies," known as 'Doshas' (body constitutions). The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha and represent the "subtle energy" that combines and balances the characteristics of the elements it influences. This force has to often combine and balance seemingly contrary forces such as fire and water under pitta. Vata combines air and space. While kapha brings water and earth together. The principle of balancing the body is done by first determining your Ayurvedic constitution or dosha type. When we recognize this, we can begin to create balance for ourselves in our health and lifestyle. . . . . . . . . #health #holistic #wellness #plantbased #organic #mindfulness #lifestyle #peace #skincare #beautyobsessed #selfcare #tealover #glow #energy #naturalhealing #balance #selflove #iherb #naturalbeauty #nontoxic #organictea
I had my very first #acupuncture consultation and treatment yesterday. It wasn't what I had expected. I thought I would be asked 20 questions and then have 50 plus needles all over my body for 30 minutes or so. Instead, I was asked a few questions and had 10 needles inserted in different parts of my body with a total time of 45 minutes. I visited this particular office because she combines Chinese medicine with acupuncture to treat autoimmune conditions. I have #hypothyroidism and #psoriasis. I didn't feel a true connection with the doctor and she kept getting annoyed when I asked her to repeat herself--her first language is not English and that's absolutely fine. My only concern is that she gave me this tea which was $78 for a 6 day supply and I'm not sure if I will have to keep purchasing this every visit. I was so relaxed and partially delusional post treatment that I didn't get a chance to ask more questions. After my own research #jingjie will help blood circulation so that stiffness and swelling in my fingers will decrease. There are other benefits but does not apply to me in my opinion. I really want to complete the process and I'm thinking of trying another office since I would have to get treatment 2x a week for 3 months then drop to 1x a week and so on. By the way, I'm one of those people who will try almost anything the natural way before going to traditional western medicine. I will keep you all posted on my acupuncture experience. 💕 . . . . . . . . #herbalmedicine #skincare #health #naturalhealing #chinesemedicine #healthissues #heal #healyourself #psoriasishelp #autoimmunedisease #psoriasiswarrior

#henneorganics Nordic Berries Lip Exfoliator keeps my 👄 super soft and moisturized! Made with sugar, coconut and jojoba oil, raspberry, shea butter, blueberry and natural flavors. It smells like sweet sugary berries and isn't abrasive on the lips. Very gently and effective. A little goes a long way! . . . Side note: My no buy year is going great! I plan on picking up anything I need in the months of May and November/December. I feel like I'm finally enjoying my products. I'm able to really test out different brands of products I received from my subscriptions last year--I think the #mariekondo is in full affect in my skincare lol. HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS--ARE YOU ON A NO BUY YEAR?? Let me know in the comments. 😎😘
Thank you @paiskincare for creating the Comfrey & Calendula Calming body cream. You guys truly understand sensitive skin. I do love my body oils but for these cold months I need a body cream which will not dry out my already scaly legs. 😅 #dryskin sucks! But with the right diet and skincare it's manageable. . . . . . Hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday! 😘 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #glow #skin #plaquepsoriasis #bodyproducts #beautyobsessed #winter
THANK YOU @linanatlife AND @tearadotech for this beautiful gift! I absolutely love my Productivitea Bottle and the Sustainable Mate Set (stainless steel infuser not pictured). How cute is this drawstring bag?! 😍 I will be keeping my eyes on what's next with TeaRado. ***I manage my hypothyroidism using prescription drugs but anything natural that will boost my energy I'm all for it!!! Will keep everyone posted on the Mate (it smells amazing) and if it makes a difference for me. In fact I'm going to switch things up and begin sharing other health related things I do to manage my immune conditions. Tea can do so much for our health--cramps 😢, diabetes ☹, immune support 😎, energy 😜, AND so much more! . . . . . . . . . . . . #winner #teatime #energy #loveyourself #skincare #glow #tearadotech #holistichealing #naturalhealing
One of my top 3 brands of 2018😻 Thanks to @sunshynecm for introducing me to @beautycounter 🤗 The Volume & Shape shampoo and conditioner are my favs because they work! I used this travel friendly set on my cruise in November and I love everything from the box. Only downside is that I slather too much moisturizer on my face and the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion is almost empty. Boohoo. . . . . Happy Christmas eve to everyone! What are you guys up to? I'm just spending time with my nieces and hubby. He's cooking gumbo and I plan on eating at my sister's house tomorrow. She's such a great cook! . . .
