Checking your skin in the mirror every second doesn't help it heal faster. It just reminds your mind how crazy your skin still looks. Which then in turn probably stresses you out a little bit, consequently making it ...itch maybe?
Drop the mirror, stop getting up to go look at it. It's still there. I'm sorry it's still there. It was gone for almost 10 months with me and it came back. It still looks the same on my neck, has the same patterns throughout the day and low and behold when I look at it in the mirror I am much more likely to scratch it to pieces sooner.
I started an Ayurvedic cleanse; taking the herb mixture Triphala two times a day for 30 days. I know cleanses can exacerbate rashes or make sick like symptoms worsen so I figured now is it a great time to start.
Triphala protects the body organs such as the eyes, heart, and the skin. It is well-known for cleansing the body so that the energy present is channeled to all the organs. It helps the absorption of nutrients, it's packed with anti-oxidants, it cleanses and supports all three doshas. (Ayurvedic body types)
I am on day three and will keep you updated if any drastic change happens. Otherwise until then I am trying to read more, blog and journal more often, write yoga sequences, hula hoop, learning to play the banjo ukulele, basically anything to keep my little fingers busy and not scratching my skin. Plus lately I am on this creative kick, trying to hone in to my creativity.
Affirmations for the day;
I AM RESILIENT. I AM HEALTHY. I AM VIBRANT. I AM BEAUTIFUL.
I AM CREATIVE. I AM CALM.
