Dry Leaves Means Self Care
It's not just the crunching of leaves beneath our feet at this time of year... Our skin and hair also feel the loss of moisture. Today I would like to remind you that now is the time to be gentle with yourself. Our bodies are reajusting to the cold and with that often comes dry air. This is the time to plan some self care...
In the Vintage Bugle today I am sending you a vertual hug ...
Healthy Living Journey
I am still using Pahla B's plan. I am counting calories and am finding this much more conducive to my lifestyle. I will be honest in saying that some of my choices may not be the very best, however they are allowing me to live a more normal life. I, for instance, made Epicure cupcakes over Thanksgiving weekend and was able to have one at the end of my day. It was small but because I could allow myself enough calories to include it in my day, I did not feel deprived.
I can tell the days when my choices were not the best health wise as I end up with not very many calories left and still feeling a bit hungry. BUT I managed to get through the rest of the night okay. I actually think my choices have been pretty great, it's just that my tummy is bigger than I would like and so it will take some time for the food I am able to eat to fill the space. The stomach has to shrink so the food will be enough... if that makes sense.
So, what do I do to get through these moments? I drink tea! My favorites are PC Winter Chocolatey and Peppermint, Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice and Twinings London Creamy Vanilla Earl Grey. All of these teas are fantastic and have helped me through my hunger. Did you know that Cold water quenches thirst and Hot water is satiating? It's science and it works!
The cold weather seems to be creeping in... see what I did there... creeping... tis the season to use words like that! LOL
Is this you?
Are you the type of hair that gets extremely staticky in the winter months?
Do you have dry itchy skin during the colder seasons?
Now is a great time to book yourself a relaxing appointment with me for a "Hair treatment" or a "Scalp and Hair treatment".
How do you know which Treatment you should book?
If you are the person who gets only static on the hair, then stick with just the "Hair Treatment"
If you get itchy and find you get flaky skin along with staticky hair, book a "Scalp & Hair Treatment"
Scheduling yourself a regular treatment appointment during the change in seasons will help your hair to remain healthy and you are giving it some kindness to stay moisturized. After such an extremely hot summer (and Fall for that matter), this is a great gift for your hair, and yourself! It is a long relaxing appointment that will make you feel pampered and relaxed. It is one of the most underrated things you can do for yourself.
I use Kevin Murphy hair and scalp Treatments at the Parlour and they now have a TAKE HOME kit that you might also enjoy! What a great gift for someone you love! Maybe that someone is YOU!
Or you can have me pamper you and book yourself some time here at the Parlour with me!
