This past winter (among many other semi recent life happenings — moving across the country, starting my own business and then totally changing the direction of my business, etc.), took a major toll on my health.
Change can sometimes do that to you. Change forces you out of your comfort zone which is a good thing because change is a catalyst for growth; but at the same time, causes stress, which we know is detrimental to our health — and personally shows up on my face in the form of unwanted, uncomfortable and totally painful breakouts!
Not something I welcome with open arms, and despite my best efforts, was not something that a quick honey mask or a gallon of green juice could fix. It was much deeper.
It was getting my hormones back in check (they’ve been totally whacked out since getting off the pill in college), healing my liver (more on that to come), and diving way further into the healing power of plants.
During the few weeks my skin was at it’s worst, I stumbled across Alexis Smart — an absolute gem in the world of health and wellness. Alexis works with flower remedies, plant power that truly heals from the inside out.
Flower remedies, or flower essences, are herbal infusions that treat the mental and emotional areas of wellness. Rather than suppressing a negative quality or covering up a symptom, flower remedies work by bringing forth the positive aspects of our personalities and awakening our inner healing powers. This method was discovered in the 1930’s by Dr. Edward Bach, a renowned British physician and immunologist. Not to be confused with aromatherapy or essential oils, flower remedies are scentless and are taken internally in the form of liquid drops under the tongue.
Totally intrigued (and totally annoyed with my acne ridden skin), I ordered myself a bottle of Alexis’ Beauty Formula No. 8 which promises anti-aging benefits, brightening, cleansing, purifying, and magnetic beauty — guys, these are magic.
When I began the formula, my skin was a mess. It was broken out, red, itchy, just awful; and my self-esteem was non-existent (I literally wanted to remove every mirror in my house because I hated what I saw — although that sounds externally dramatic, it’s true! My skin had never been that bad!). But after just a few days I began to notice results, not just on my skin, but also emotionally, it was incredible.
After completing the bottle (one bottle lasts about 90 days), my skin looks better than it ever has. My confidence levels are through the roof and my skin is literally glowing. Now when I look in the mirror, I love what I see.
For anyone experiencing skin issues — this stuff is just beyond.
And Alexis, the luminous spirit behind the brand is an absolute love. Seriously, we’ve been emailing back and forth and her heart is gold. Needless to say I will be trying out every remedy she has (check out her full line here — Brain Drops are next on my list!), she even offers custom blends.
I highly recommend trying these out and experiencing their transformative powers for yourself.
