Sensitive or sensitized!? Sensitized skin is often mistaken for sensitive skin! A lot of you have witnessed my facial expressions when you have come in saying my skin is sensitive! Most cases it's not! It's the self harm you have caused it! Sensitized skin is the result of your environment, how you took care of your skin in the past (or not take care of it at all) your diet and your habits! Many people experience irritation and facial redness to topical ingredients due to pollution in the air, poor diet, alcohol consumption or improper or overuse of certain topical products. You can't say your skin is sensitive when you are using incorrect/ or harsh products like alcohol-based/ perfume filled skin care that strip the skin and dehydrate it which irritates the skin resulting in a sunburn-like sensation! Your skin today is a presentation of your past! Your skin has accumulated all the neglect in the past! Your skin is dehydrated, stressed, pigmented and sensitized not because of your last trip to the beach but from all of last summer and from last years summer and the year before that and the summer that you spent whilst in Europe in 2016 2015 and so on and so on.. Guys it's really important that we focus on strengthening, improving and restoring barrier function of your skin! My advice in short; make sure you have a healthy balanced diet, make sure your using a good hydrator avoid too much direct sun exposure and most importantly #SlipSlopSlap!

PLEASE READ! 🧠
Committing a dietary transgression and then proceeding to go on an eating bender in which you ingest everything but the kitchen sink is called “counterregulatory eating” in the scientific literature. It’s more commonly known as the “what the hell effect” — as in, “ah, what the hell, I may as well finish this off and start fresh tomorrow/next Monday/next month/next year”! How many of you have done this before? I know I have back in the day. •
This may seem backwards, but a lot of times, the stricter you are with your diet and the more you see foods in black-and-white, good-and-bad, the more likely you are to self-sabotage. Adopting a flexible mindset toward your nutrition can help tremendously with feelings of guilt or remorse and moderating portion control. After all, one 150 Calorie cookie is far, far preferable to several thousands of Calories’ worth of extra food, is it not? •
Finally, make sure that your nutrition program is realistic and sustainable. Do you enjoy it? Do you allow for the occasional indulgence? If you don’t like and if it doesn’t make you feel good, then you’re not going to adhere to it for long, after all. •
And remember: nobody ever got fat from ONE cookie! Enjoy the hell out of your treat and move on.
