It’s happened, September is here and the days are shortening, will soon grow cooler, and the season to gather and harvest is upon us. Transitioning between seasons is a natural process, however it requires some adjustments both from our body and mind that we often take for granted but that impact more than we imagine on our overall wellness. This is particularly significant when switching from the warm weather and abundance of light in summer to the first chills and the longer nights in autumn.
Trees will soon begin to release that which they no longer need and nature will become quieter and turn inward. Some nickname this month Stresstember because of all of the changes that it brings, all around us. Summer holidays ending, darker skies, school beginning, leaves changing colors and falling… a somewhat abrupt end to the laid back days and a theme of busyness casts its shadow. Daily schedules get busier and many of us experience lack of sleep and overall feeling of fatigue and tension, due to our muscles tightening up and our heart rate increasing as a response to the external demands.
Squeaky clean skin is GOOD
NOT Squeaky clean disrupts the protective acid mantle and can make skin sensitive, itchy, red, possibly with breakouts. Be Gentle, Use Gentle
Hot Water is Good for Your Skin
Washing or showering in hot water actually removes oils and natural moisturizers from your skin. This can cause redness/dilated capillaries and leave skin dry and itchy.
Pores Open and Close
Pores do NOT open and close. Heat will soften the sebum in the pores making the pores look larger. Another reason to avoid heat.
Tanned Skin is Healthy Skin
NOT Skin tans in order to protect itself from the sun. Tanned skin simply means your skin has been injured
Indoor Tanning is Safer Than Being in the Sun
Same, or more UV/UVA damage as the sun-and faster! Just say No.
Sunscreen Lasts All Day
If you’re going to be outside for several hours, you should plan on reapplying sunscreen every 2-3 hours. Then Get Out of the Sun.

Lack of sleep can make you cranky, foggy and lose focus. You might not be aware of the effects it may have on your sexual life, memory, health, appearance, or even on weight management.

Here are 10 surprising and serious effects of what loss of sleep can do to your body.
My goal is to be your Age Management Retreat. Ladies, I speak your Age! I'm 60 (!) and have encountered, or will soon, the aging skin issues we 'd like to avoid.
