why skintimacy matters so much to me...
I want to alter the way you look at your skin. because oh, your skin is so much more than the look of it.
your skin is that which connects your inner to your outer world, your skin is that which holds everything within.
your skin protects you ánd shows you to the world.
and I see we can relate to our skin much deeper than we are taught to do; the relationship to your skin is deep, so profound...
It is easy to get confused...
by all the products to choose from,
conflicting messages of what is good, how to take best care of her...
navigating the many messages of skin conditions, conditioning and what society tells us about our skin
confused by what I should look like, what I should cover her with, how to hide her...
confused by aging, by the concepts of beauty,
confused by the feelings in relation to my skin
my skin acting differently in different times of the months, responding to different substances, foods...
so I questioned, deeply...
and found my answers
finding your answers...
for a long time I have been raising my awareness into holistic ways to take care of the skin that I am in
I've been exploring the beauty standards and cultural notions around the looks of skin
I have found the skin to be one of the most interesting and intriguing parts of my human body
I see the cultivation of an intimate relationship with my skin as part of my daily practice; physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually
your skin is the portal that connects your inner
with your oouter world
