I finally purchased a new IPhone case...
my other one was chipped and the coating was peeling off
every time I looked at it it made me cringe so why it took me so long to find a new one is beyond me.
I'm experiencing disrupted sleep
it is most likely stress
like many women of my age
who frequently find that our sleep wake rhythms change
the nights feel rather long when one lies awake
listening to the ticking of the clock
I am trying to come to terms with these new sleep patterns
but it is not easy.
In the morning when I wake up and look in the mirror
I see that my eyes are puffy
and my skin has creases on the side of my face
from lying on my pillowcase.
I googled "wrinkles on the face from sleeping" and to my surprise discovered that if one uses a satin or silk pillowcase that these wrinkles will be reduced.
I was really skeptical
but with several leading dermatologists endorsing the product
I thought that I better give it a try...
after one night of sleep
I am thrilled to tell you they really do WORK!
I did not wake up "Feeling Glamorous like the box indicates
but I woke up and was happy to see that the deep creases were not imprinted on my cheek!
I also have introduced a healthy product into my skincare regime
At bedtime after cleansing my skin
I apply a small amount of coconut oil on my face.
It is super emollient and feels so soft in the morning.
This large jar was under $10 and it will last a long time...
and you can use it all over the body.
I am taking life one day at a time...
seeking small comforts and snippets of beauty
where I can find it in my daily round...
it is a lot harder to find than it used to be
if I had a magic wand I would wave it and erase all the bad stuff in our world.
I will continue...
to do my best.
taking care of my husband
offering support to our family
tending to our cats
sharing random acts of kindness
Cocooning and recharging....
behind closed doors.
Its also the time of year when I like to replace some of my lingerie
so this is on the top of my list of things to do
perhaps I'll get around to it this week.
Have you got a long list of things to do this month?
