Hello guys. I just want to thank you for your continuous kindness and support. I know that my blog isn’t a joy to read or anything. I’m really just ranting most of the time.. But the fact that you guys take the time to read and comment means so much.
I’m really trying to work on getting past my anxieties and insecurities. I always tell myself that it’s just not possible. That the only way I’ll feel better is if my outer appearance changes. I’m a perfectionist and this isn’t the face or body I would have chosen for myself, if that makes sense. This isn’t how I want to look. And it’s still hard to get over.. I try to focus on other things – school work, cooking & baking, talking to friends & my sister, and just doing things that I *somewhat* enjoy. But I still feel so down on myself all of the time. It’s very consuming of my time and energy and everything.
Anyway, I wanted to update you guys on the fish oil I started taking about 2 months ago. It has made a big difference in the health of my hair. It’s shinier and softer and easier to manage. So I’m very happy about that. I’m not sure whether I’ll continue taking the pills once they run out or try to incorporate fish into my diet.. I still eat vegan besides the fish oil so it would be a big change.
Another healthy oil that has really helped me is coconut (virgin to be exact). I started putting it on my face and some in my hair after reading that Amanda has gotten positive results from doing so. My skin looks and feels much better. It’s really quite amazing. No other moisturizer that I’ve tried has come close to this. I think that I have chronically dry skin, so finding something that actually absorbs into my skin and repairs it is a miracle. I definitely recommend using a bit on your face and hair. It hasn’t caused breakouts for me either which I was definitely afraid of.
But anyway, definitely consider incorporating fish oil and coconut oil into your everyday routine! These healthy fats have certainly worked wonders for me. Now I just wish that I hadn’t spent so much money on expensive moisturizers and hair care products.
Do you incorporate any healthy oils into your diet or skin and hair care?
I hope you all have a nice weekend!
