Lovely Bright Eyes That Smile

Your eyes are surrounded by very thin, delicate skin. In fact your eyes area's skin can be compared to the thinness of an onion. The area beneath your eyes contain few oil glands making it vulnerable to fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles can't be prevented but the aging process can be slowed down and enhanced with natural ingredients. Definitely shop for paraben-free and fragrance-free eye cremes and serums. Avoid exfoliating to close to your eyes.

Your eyes actually can say a lot about you. Your eyes can show stress, poor diet, and lack of sleep. When these issues are present the eyes may show dark circles, swelling and puffiness. Dark circles can be a sign of dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of water. Try drinking cranberry juice to reduce dark circles. Cranberries contain vitamin K as well as dark green veggies. If you are experiencing swelling and puffiness, use spoons chilled in ice water and press them around the eyes. For a quick home remedy try a few drops of Vitamin E, Castor Oil or Olive Oil around the eye area.

New at Norabloom: Yoga Therapy with Jen

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy:
A healing modality that combines supported yoga postures with introspection, dialogue and present-moment awareness techniques. A session is non-directive and open-ended with regard to outcome. In bringing awareness to and verbalizing what is happening in each moment, clients can experience a deeper connection with internal guidance, and are able to process and release old 'stuff' that may no longer be serving them. This work can support you in dealing with physical illness, emotional trauma, difficult life changes, self-inquiry, feeling 'stuck', and pretty much anything else you'd like to explore! No knowledge of yoga is needed, as you will be guided and supported throughout the entire session.

Additional information on PRYT and a description of what a session might be like can be found here:

Cherry Angiomas

Red moles? Nope these are Cherry Angiomas. Cherry Angiomas are cherry-red to purple colored benign skin tumors of unknown origin that appear most frequently after age 40. They are the most common vascular lesions to appear on human skin. They are made up of clusters of dilated capillaries on the surface of the skin, which accounts for the cherry-red or purple color. No one knows exactly what causes them. Cherry angiomas can occur almost anywhere on the skin, but most commonly on the torso.

No fear ladies... I can treat these!
