CLEANSE YO’ SELF BEW.
Hey loves! Welcome back for another “WCW” and today’s article is definitely fitting of the “WCW” title. How many times have you seen others that you admire and think wow I’d like to look like that or have that type of spirit? I’m sure we’ve all done that at some point in our lives. Everyone wants to look good and feel amazing!
All of that is cool, but I believe that glow derives from within and has to be developed over time. See, the body is your temple and it encompasses the mind, all of its functions and the spirit. Many times we neglect cleansing ourselves from the inside out and then grovel over what we see in the mirror. Yet, how can one expect to receive the best of its body if it is being ignored? So, today I’d like to explore the deepest depths of
Baptize you with a little glow water and get you to see yourself as your own #WCW.
Get up! Girl, wash your face.
These were literally my mother’s words (well…kinda but shout to Rachel Hollis for making them famous) when I was thirteen and in middle school, with emotions out of this world going through my awkward stage. She’d tell me how important it was to take care of the body (temple) God gave me, and how good I would feel if I did. Now, she may have taken it a little
I love my skin! I enjoy talking about skin, inquiring about skin, sampling new skin products. I am all about SKIN! SKIN! SKIN! Personally, I think skin is your God-given accessory, it should be soft and radiant no matter how light or dark or in between it is, give that baby tender love and care. I remember getting my first facial when I was nineteen at Chateau Elan in Atlanta, Ga. My esthetician was from London and asked me what I used in my skin regimen. I didn’t use anything at the time but good ole’ soap and water. She informed me that the girls in London start their skin regimen at seventeen. Immediately, I dived even deeper into skin care. Throughout the years I have found products I absolutely adore and a regimen that never fails me.
Currently, I’m using the Apple Rose line for cleanser, moisturizer
Now, on to the body… Find a great scrub for your skin type along with a loofah and once a week, scrub baby scrub (softly) and purify that skin! Follow up with a body wash that excludes a lot of harsh chemicals. I like to use the brand Jason, you can get them from your local Sprouts. Lastly, keep that door closed honey, we wouldn’t want the steam to get out and oil/lotion up good. Any oil is good, presently I’m using apricot oil and I like to get my oils from Sprouts as well. They’re all 100%.
PLANTS & AGUA.
This article is titled baptism for a reason, it’s the purification of one’s self. How you gonna do that without water? 😂 Water is the essential key we need to survive. I mean it’s really a big deal! Like, have you ever noticed when you’ve had one too many drinks the night prior and you get up in the morning feeling like death. You drink water and it’s insane how revived and alive you feel. Same, with a shower. When you’re full of anxiety and maybe even bearing a bout of depression when you finally get up and get in the shower there is something about the water that is rescuing. I love
The older we get the more difficult it may become to stay active and workout. In high school maybe you were apart of a sport and they had you working out every muscle yet you didn’t know it because you were participating in something you love. Now, in your twenties or thirties and someone has to drag you off the couch and beg you to workout. But, it’s a must. A pain in the ass, but a must! What I’ve found is if you stay consistent you will begin to love the after effect and start to enjoy the process of the gym more. Working out gives you great endurance, energy, spiritual enlightenment (connection to oneself) and all around good mental vibes. There is nothing better
cleanliness is next to GODLINESS
Pretty much. So stay clean Queens. That’s from the soul to the flesh. Stay connected to the source (God) and be your own WCW. Keep inspiring and sharing what you know.
