The day the voices stopped

In this book Ken Steele tells us of his life with schizophrenia. The first seven chapters are really harrowing. He tells us of all his ups and downs with his illness, the dreadful stays in mental hospitals, and the people taking advantage of him in his life outside of them.

The day the voices stopped

Every winter without fail, I get terribly dry skin on my face. The day after the we turn on the furnace for the first time in the fall, it starts. My face — especially in my T-zone — gets itchy, dry, and flaky.

Why I Stopped Using Coconut Oil as a Skin Moisturizer - Red and Honey

After my shower, it feels tight and awful, like that feeling you get when wearing a face mask that has dried and is ready to wash off. I do not appreciate this facet of my undeniably otherwise-flawless beauty. Remember how Windex is the cure-all?

Same idea, less hilarious and more natural. It is often touted as the Awesomest! I also tried jojoba oil for a while holy expensive, batman.

It was better, but still not awesome. My life was forever changed when an email landed in my inbox from Hannah at Wilder Supply Co. Wilder was formerly called Taproot Farms. Same great company, different name. I am totally not kidding, friends!

This completely blew my mind. I was all like, OK, sure, sounds fun. Little did I know that my face moisturizing routine as I knew it was about to be forever changed. I tried a few different products: I LOVE the silky smooth feel of it. Then… I tried the Moroccan Argan Oil. Coconut oil is a very light moisturizer that sinks in quickly, which appeals to a lot of people.

It works well for some, but not those with very dry skin as it does not moisturize deeply enough. Conversely, coconut oil is considered to be fairly comedogenic.

I dab a few drops on my driest areas right between my eyebrows, forehead, around the base of my nose and massage it in. It literally only takes a few drops, and my skin drinks it up thirstily.

It is especially effective if I give my face a quick, gentle exfoliation first. In the shower, I just gently scrub my face with a washcloth and it works great.

At the risk of overstating my case, to be honest, I am utterly blown away and thrilled with this product. Now, not only does it work well and not cost me an arm and a leg, but consider these amazing factors as well: Argan oil is one of the rarest, most highly valued oils in the world.

It is a plant-based oil that comes from the Argan tree, which is exclusive to Morocco. Every part of the plant is utilized: The process of extraction and selling this oil is done in a sustainable fashion. Almost all Argan oil is distributed by local co-operatives of women in Morocco.

To this day, the most efficient method of extraction is hand-pressing the kernels, which provides valuable jobs to women in the country. The industry often adds synthetic versions of these things to products to be able to market them as anti-aging and healing, but of course, the natural non-synthetic version is far superior.

Argan also contains active ingredients called phytosterols, which may have anti-tumor effects, reduce inflammation, and which also have cell stimulation properties. They also value sustainability and top-notch service, which pretty well makes them my ideal company.
