Is it the moist in the air that favours the naturally dewy complexion.

Over the years the colour of skin and fashion have changed. Before the industrial revolution and payed holiday leave, being tanned was for the  lower class,  the workers who were outside or in the fields. Being pale was considered a sign of high society status.

e443767e3177d833e04a0ef8456365e63ee6bfcbThis is still the case in Asia.

Now being tanned is a way of showing off that we can afford a holiday in the sun.

Skin color is due to melanin, a pigment produced in the epidermis to protect us from the sun’s potentially cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) rays. Dark-skinned people produce more numerous and deeper-colored melanin particles. However we can really see the positive effect of moist in Northen countries where skin is not so  exposed to the sun, we  learn that those thin and microscopic bubbles of water are what it takes to keep our skin from drying up. I always look for water in my creams since the oil trappes the water which is then released on our skin.

Skin is the biggest organ in our body, it weighs around 4 kg and measures around 2 square meter for an adult. It is 8 times thicker under our foot than it is around our eyes.

W/O Emulsion and O/W Emulsion

In every emulsion there is a continuous phase that suspends the droplets of the other element which is called the dispersed phase. In an oil-in-water emulsion, the continuous phase is the water and the dispersed phase is the oil while in a water-in-oil emulsion the oil is the continuous phase.

 

SWIMMING IN FREEZING COLD WATER

14069386880_8d2df89f32_z-2SWIMMING IN COLD WATER

I have been swimming in cold sea water from 18 degrees to 15 now every other day for the past month. The results are spectacular, whether for the morale, the energy level, toning, accelarating the metabolism, results are amazing.
Cold water stimulates your parasympathetic system, it triggers the release of dopamine and serotonin. Along with the effect of endorphins and adrenaline from the plunge, ice swimming is packed full of neurotransmitters that are vital to keeping us happy. This is a natural substitute to anti-depression medications so if you are near the sea, or a lake jump in or if not, try standing in a cold shower a few minutes a day.

Natural benefits and advantages of ice swimming:
More vitality
Improve memory performance
Reduces pain associated with fibromyalgia, rheumatism, or asthma
Increases your defense system
Gets your blood pumping
Enhances your sex life
Burns calories.

Is an all-natural high

Winter swimmers talk a lot about the ‘HIGHS’ they get from cold water – a feeling of wellbeing that’s so encompassing that it becomes quite addictive

The cause? Endorphins.

GET YOUR BLOOD PUMPING

Being cold sends blood it to your organs and make you feel ALIVE……

ALSO: Economical, ecological, free ant-depressant.

We all have the power to chose to consume or not, we all have a voice through the choices we make every day.

Before After   

THE PRESENT MOMENT

The present moment brings us back to the source. Live HERE and NOW. Awareness of the present moment is when you stop your mind from wondering. Your mind is only focused on what you are doing HERE and NOW. Using breathing as a support, with a bit of every day practice, you can within a second stop your mind from wandering from one thing to the next. The more you practice the easier it gets to let go and to achieve calm and inner peace you can then communicate with your true self and find innocence and peace.

                                                                                             Meditation is freedom.

Our real self, is perfect and free. Meditation is the way and a process of re-centering our awareness in the principle of pure consciousness which is our essential being. By sitting with closed eyes and letting the mind become absorbed, observing and experiencing the movements of the breath we enter into the consciousness and awareness of the present moment.

Play attention to your breathing, and listen, from the moment you start to the moment your breathing becomes deep, be attentive.

1) Sit upright, pull your spine up, shoulders high, comfortable and relaxed, with your hands resting on your knees or thighs.

2) Close your eyes gently to remove visable distraction.

3) Close your mouth, relax your jaw and mouth.

4) Inhale and exhale slowly and deeply three or four times, feeling the inhaling and exhaling, your breath moving in and out through your noze.

5) Now breathe naturally and easefully, keeping your awareness.

6) Keeping your awareness, observe the sensation of the breath moving there throughout all your inhalations and exhalations.

7) Let your awareness rest gently on the breath. After a while it may feel as though the breath is flowing in and out, continue focusing and listening to it , in and out the focus of your attention should be only at that point of listening–

8) Let the breath be as it will. . Let the breath be natural and unforced, and just observe and experience it.

In time your breath will become more subtle and refined, and slow down.

9) In Breath Meditation we only focus our awareness on the breath. However, as you meditate you may use this in every chore throughout the day just concentrate on the present moment of what you are doing, keeping centered.

10) Thoughts, impressions, memories, inner sensations, and such like may also arise during meditation. Be calmly aware of all these things in a detached and objective manner. Let them come and go as they will, but keep your attention centered . Meditation produces peace, awareness and quiet joy.

11) If you find yourself getting restless, distracted, , just inhale and exhale slowly and deeply a few times, feeling the inhaling and exhaling breath moving in and out through your nostrils, at the same time feeling that you are releasing and breathing out all tensions. Relaxation is the key to successful meditation practice.

12) Keep in mind that Meditation basically consists of being AWARE. That is all!

13) At the end of your meditation time, keep on being calmly aware of your breath moving in and out as you go into the make up ceremony. In this way you can maintain the calm and clear state of mind and awareness throughout every movement.
