If you are above the Ecuador, it’s Winter Solstice. If you are below the Ecuador as I am, it’s Summer Solstice. In any case, today is a Solstice’s Day. I must confess that only recently I have become fond of Solstice Celebrations. And I also confess that I don’t know much about it regarding the spiritual meaning of it, but for me, it has become a day to clean, detox my house (in this case my body, mind and soul), nourish it and set the vibe for the new set of seasons. Focus on what I want to bring to my reality and let it go whatever no longer serves me.
Having said that, as far as I have heard, this particular Solstice’s Day (December 21st, 2020) marks the beginning of a new era: The Aquarian Age, supposedly a kinder, more compassionate, collective, equal, fraternal age. And I really would like to think that something like that is on its way. But if it’s, it’s gonna take a very long time to actually begin, indeed. If there is one lesson that this whole Pandemic illustrate very clearly to all of us is that people in general, in its majority really don’t care as much about caring for one another. People care up to a tiny little point if that much. People are so locked in their selfish bubble that I cannot see a better world from this perspective. At least not now or anytime soon.
Still, I am really happy for this Solstice that will bring the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, something pretty rare and pretty amazing because they as one will shine as Christmas Star. And I hope that from now on, Aquarian Age or not, we can bring more light to our lives as an I, as much as a We. Drop by drop, one little small step at the time, but always towards the right direction. So one day we can be one. And shine all together.
If you are washing your hands more often and using hand sanitizer more than ever due to good practices to prevent getting and spreading the Covid-19 virus, you probably noticed this terrible side effect: extra dry hands. And for those like me who have a thin skin this is even more of a problem. And honestly, using a regular hand moisturizer all the time (or as often as I could remember) or even some body oils to address the problem didn’t prevent nor worked to treat the dryness, cracked skin of my hands.
And after considering a Dermatologist to help me out on that, I remembered about this product I had used once to treat the extra dryness of my hands a few years ago. And boom, game changer. The product is O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Cream. And it’s a miracle cream because within a few days my skin went from extremely dried, totally cracked to a smooth looking (and touching) one. No kidding. There are still some roughness in my hand’s knuckles, but it’s so little that I can hardly feel it. For me it’s good enough already.
I only used it before bed every night for about 3 days and that was enough to reverse the damage. But you can use it as often as you like. Now I keep on using the cream so I can keep it like that, hopefully. Because it’s very unpleasant to have extra dry hands.
The cream has no fragrance, it doesn’t make your hands greasy after using it, but leaves your hands highly moisturized and protected. I do recommend it.
And just to disclosure: this is not a paid post. It’s totally my experience with the cream and the dry hands problem that I wanna share with you.
