moisturizer product

little I knew about the effect of a decent moisturizer on my health, until I smothered my first moisturizer on my desert dry face during a very critical time in my life, it was 5th relapse in my mental illness journey and having a face routine wasn't one of my interests or even a necessity. dealing with an illness that makes you not know the difference between what is real and what are just exaggerated figments of irrational thoughts that may never happen but leave you anxious and home bound for months and sometimes years. after my sister insisted that my face needed to be rescued as it was as flaky as an abandoned dry dough on a kitchen counter, I went and bought a moisturizer from the pharmacy as there I could get a consultation from the lady working there and boy I was happy with her recommendation. the minute I put the serum on my face I started hearing birds singing , children playing , couples laughing , I felt human again! it was soo soothing, it was as thou my skin was thanking me for this heroic act that I did ! the act of putting on moisturizer ! that act of self love! the act that showed me I am good enough! I am worthy! and by the way this silly act of self care led me back on the road of recovery and healing too! now I can never live without putting on moisturizer ,and or even larger acts of self love like going to the salon for a mani and pedi. I am not saying don't take your meds and don't go for therapy just put on moisturizer and you will be fine! its an act of balance. take your meds , go for therapy , and put on your moisturizer cause your worth it !
