About three years ago, I developed pigmentation on the skin of my face, on my cheeks. And though I am not overtly bothered about aesthetics, these dark patches bothered me enough for me to do internet research on getting rid of them.
OMG. Bleaching. Laser.
Being the coward that I am, I was frightened off and decided that I had to live with it. It was very likely to be hormonal, I thought, as I was around 46 years old by then. Maybe menopausal, I thought. As I also had other challenges and issues in my life then, the patches faded into insignificance in my life.
Then bang, cancer hit. As the cancer I had was linked to my high oestrogen levels, those patches on my face could well be due to hormonal imbalance. November 2015 was when I was rebirthed. I overhauled my life completely, and today, months after my all-clear and living a much happier, blessed life once more, I was surprised (maybe not) to find that my patches have faded quite a bit. My skin looks a lot better, glowing even, though my diet has not changed at all – I always ate healthy. And I am now older too 🙂
This is nothing new or ground-breaking. There is this age-old wisdom which says that much of health, well-being and even glow comes NOT from medicine, good genes or good food, but from peace in the mind, peace in the heart and peace in the soul.
