Welcome to Blessed Health

 

Hi! I’m Sarah a wife and mother of 4 beautiful children.

 

I am passionate about wholesome food, juicing, smoothies, and the bible.

 

I love the beach, sunshine and chocolate fudge cake.

 

I qualified as a beauty therapist  in my 20's and have been researching health and fitness ever since.

 

A few years ago i suffered with really bad cystic acne, and have been researching a cure for this. Now i have been clear faced for around 6 months!

 

This is now my way of sharing the knowledge and experience I’ve gained over the years with people like you, who are just as passionate and enthusiastic about a healthy lifestyle, with a slice of cake on the side!

Too little sleep makes you look and feel tired. One of the first places lack of sleep shows up is on the face, with dark circles and bags under the eyes, and sagging skin.

A lot of people don't have enough sleep due to giving in to the ways of the world, and staying up late to watch their favourite TV programmes or movie's, or its maybe that you are feeling stressed due to family situations or work.

But the only way to help gain a more youthful appearance naturally is to reduce your stress levels and this in turn will help give you a younger appearance.


But how is this achievable? You say “it’s simpler said than done!”

These are some ways people deal with stress, as a coping mechanism but are very unhealthy, and cause more damage in the long term:

Smoking

Drinking too much alcohol

Overeating or under eating

Zoning out for hours in front of the TV or computer

Withdrawing from friends, family, and activities

Using pills or drugs to relax

Sleeping too much

Procrastinating

Filling up every minute of the day to avoid facing problems

Taking out your stress on others (lashing out, angry outbursts, physical violence)


Below are some healthy ways to relax.


Go for a walk.

Spend time in nature.

Call a good friend.

Sweat out tension with a good workout.

Write in a diary/journal.

Take a long bath.

Light scented candles.

Relax with a warm cup of herbal tea.

Play with a pet.

Work in your garden.

Get a massage.

Curl up with a good book.

Listen to music.

Watch a comedy.

For me I find that the best way to reduce my stress is to fully put my trust in the all mighty Yah and pray. I read his words of wisdom and guidance in the bible to help gain that inner peace and strength.

And I know if you take up this strategy you will gain lots of health benefits and you will be a step closer to that younger looking less stressed you.

For the past 2 years, more or less i have been suffering with acne. I have tried so many different concoctions and herbal medications to help cure me of this.


Nothing helped to eliminate this fully, but some things helped me a little. But for the past 2 weeks i have been using raw black soap on my face acne. And do you know what? It is doing a great job! I have read reviews talking about the soap drying out the skin, and to a certain extent it has slightly, but what i do is, cut it down with water and use coconut oil afterwards. This has not only worked wonders on my acne but also the dark scars caused from the acne.


So why not give it a try and leave me a comment, on how you use this, and how it has worked for you.
