Your face…your profile…it is a work of art. Hand-crafted by the Master Artist, GOD
Genesis 1:27 (KJV) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
You have been created in GOD”S IMAGE!
As a cosmetology student we have learned a huge amount about skin care. One fact they have hammered in school is whatever you put in your body will show up on your outer appearnace. For instance, if you tend to eat a large amount of greasy food then your skin will be more oily and greasy feeling. Then, you will eventually begin breaking out more. CRAZY, right! Watch what you eat and keep your face clean!
Physical health is extremely important, but tending to our spiritual health is also a nessescity! Like the verse says in proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he..” What ever you allow to fill your mind and heart will reflect on your outward appeance. Your facial expressions, tone of voice, and attitude. Keep your mind and heart filled with the Lord so that others may see Jesus shining through you!
Just like a pimple! You can try to cover that thing up and it will not show for a while, but eventually that blemish will get bigger, redder, and you wont be able to hide it any longer.
This is why it is so important for us to keep our spiritual and physical skin clean. Yes, we will make mistakes and we will have some scars, but with every scar there is a story, and behind every story there is a lesson.
Verse to think about…
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Challenge yourself to think on these specific things! Allow God to overflow you and watch your attitude change, your facial expressions will reflect joy, and your tone of voice will be positive. The closer your relationship with God is the more His personality begins to rub off on you!

Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner here is a fun Pumpkin mask you can do with your mom, sister, daughter, or friends! It may sound crazy, but pumpkin is actually filled with vitamin C, E, A, zinc, beta carotene, antioxidants, and potassium! With that being said, it acts as a GREAT exfoliate, soothes irritation, redness, calms breakouts, and makes the skin appear more bright.
The amazing thing about this mask is that it only takes 4 ingredients!
- 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon milk
Mix the ingredients together then apply to face! It is easier to apply with a brush, but a spoon or hands will be just fine.
You might want to warm up the mask a little before applying if you you don’t want it super cold. Then, leave it on until the mask it completely dry. It usually takes around 20 minutes! After it has dried take a warm wash cloth to remove it!
