In the perfect world that I imagine, the seasons fluctuate between late spring and mid-summer and back again. You know, those times of the year when it’s easy to look and feel both beautiful and inspired. Those warm seasons that cause your skin to glow, you’re sun kissed, and all things wonderful seem possible. But alas, we have four seasons and we have to deal with each accordingly.
Back to life, back to reality, it’s winter. During this season one primary routine is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. During this season my skin can have the tendency to feel dry and look ashy. So I pile on my Anu’s Body Butter and chuck down lots of skin boosting supplements. Mulit-vitamins, extra A and E vitamins, Omega 3 Fish oil capsules and sprinkle on the flaxseeds.
I try to keep it positive. I make an effort to refrain from talking bad about the winter. I try to minimize the amount of times I say I’m cold. I wear skin clinging thermals, wool socks and layers of clothing and of course think warm thoughts. I carry lotion in my car and my handbags.
I know there are people that actually like and enjoy cold weather and the winter season. That’s beyond my realm of comprehension. I’d like to know what do you do the stave off the winter blues and it’s effects? Let me know.
I am the owner of Khamit Kinks Natural Hair Care Salon located in Brooklyn, NY. Working in natural hair has been an amazing journey that has lead me to interests in other things natural that promote both health and beauty.
I especially enjoy helping women feel and look beautiful. Consequently, I have always had an interest in health. I am not a professional health provider or doctor. I have just always believed in the incredible power that we all possess to influence our own health and well being. We're all aware that true beauty comes from within and I believe that on some level health and beauty are inextricably connected.
I have studied Chinese Medicine and I am a certified Hatha Yoga instructor. I make an effort to do my daily practices of yoga, aerobics, meditation. Some times it's easy and other times it's a challenge.
I love my sisters, my sister friends and I appreciate sisterhood. Women inspire me. My mission is to continue to inspire them and give them the best of what the universe has given me.
