Monday Musings // Quote of the Week



Happy Monday readers!

Today, I wanted to share little or shall I say big and annoying challenge that I've had to deal with my own skin for about 7-8 months... Peri oral dermatitis! Mine has developed on my laugh lines (the area between the nose and mouth)

I sit here writing this, and I question this darned thing that has happened to my skin. I am an esthetician and so incredibly passionate about skincare, health and beauty... and I get this weird condition! All I know is that I got it for some reason, and I am getting to the bottom of it.

Peri oral dermatitis affects a lot of young women. Specifically women in their 20s to mid 40s. 
A lot of links of POD relate to toxins in self care & beauty products, hormone changes, sun exposure, diet and more. There really isn't a definitive cure or clue to POD.

However, I wanted to just share with the world of women that are suffering from this skin challenge that you aren't alone. I will post a blog article soon on my own personal journey with POD and how I take care of my skin and more. That's to come later. For today, just remember you are beautiful. No matter if you are struggling with peri oral dermatitis, acne, eczema, wrinkles or sunspots. You are glorious, just the way God made you. Remember to let your skin breathe and love yourself.
