2 Overcoming your Shopping Addiction

The Guide to Beating your Addiction to Shopping and Ending the Shopping Addiction Cycle

I am not someone who has to shop or even likes to shop and spend money. But I do not mind going to the mall and window shop. But I think if I had money I might have a problem with shopping and it could turn into a addiction as there is so many things I want for both Charlie and David as well as I. Some of it is things we need but more than that it is items we all just would like to have.

So with this I thought it would be a good thing to read this book so I would not get into the habit of wanting to spend money we do not have. Plus I could share it with my friends who does shop and should not as they do not have the money to. So as I read the book I did learn things I did not know that will not only help me but my friends as well.

So after reading this book I know what triggers some of the things I do and my friends do and I have found out how I can change things and how I can stop this bad behavior so I am now hooked on this book and I will be purchasing it not only for my friends but also my family as well.  All in all this was a huge hit to me and I will read it again and again and again and I hope you do as well.

Product Description

You’re about to discover proven steps and strategies to help you better understand the underlying causes of compulsive spending and develop the right approach needed to effectively combat shopping addiction.

Addiction to shopping is arguably the most socially reinforced among all the known forms of behavioral disorders. In a highly consumerist society, spending is seen as a key exercise in validating your worth, so it is not surprising to see the act of shopping being equated with personal happiness.

But therein lies the biggest challenge: when left unchecked, excessive shopping has the potential of spawning serious emotional, financial, and even physical problems. In fact, similar to other forms of addiction, getting hooked to shopping can also extend beyond the self and pose significant challenges to your relationships with other people.

It goes without saying, therefore, that anyone keen on getting rid of this disorder should be equipped with the proper mindset, motivation, and attitude needed to keep it from wreaking further havoc into his life.

Joyal Beauty Super Brightening Vitamin C Serum Review

Product Details

I am someone who is not aging  gracefully. As I am asked more and more if I am Charlies grandmother instead of his mom. I hate hate hate this. So I am always looking for ways to combat this. I would spend every penny I have to stop this as I do not want to embarrass Charlie in any way as he gets older. Plus David and I are the same age and people never ask him if he is his grandfather. So I am on a mission to change this. No matter what I have to do as I want to be a “MOM” Charlie is proud to be seen with.

So in November when I turn 50 I want my skin to not be sagging and full of wrinkles so I have started to use the Joyal Beauty Super Brightening Vitamin C Servum and I have seen some difference. I now it will not happen over night and so I have pledged to use if for 6 months and once I start I am not going to say anything to anyone as I want to see if they notice a difference.

If people do I will be ordering some for my sister as well as she has lost so much weight her skin is sagging and making her look a lot older than she is. Even though she does not say anything as her sister I can tell you it bothers her. So with Christmas right around the corner I can purchase some for her for her Stocking.

If you have not read the description this also protects agains sun damage and since Charlie thinks we should live outside I am glad I found it as sun damage can also damage our skin. So this is something I will be using on the days Charlie ask me to go outside and play with him as we usually spend most of the day outside.

It  is easy to use as I take my shower and wash my face. Once I am done I just apply this and I am ready for the day. No one can even tell I used anything. It is not greasy. I have started to massage my skin as well and it does make a difference. So if you have not tried it I hope you try it out soon.

Product Description

  • ★Joyal Beauty Super Brightening Vitamin C Serum is a powerful concentrated delivery system for the highest form of active, stabilized, bio-available Vitamin C boosting collagen production and increasing elasticity and firmness. It is also enriched with vitamin E, ferulic acid, pure vegan hyaluronic acid and many anti-aging formulas to plump skin cells and restore cells. Our potent plants-derived ferulic acid incorporation into the topical solution of vitamin C+E improved chemical stability of the vitamins C+E and doubled photoprotection to solar-simulated irradiation of skin from 4-fold to approximately 8-fold as measured by both erythema and sunburn cell formation. This antioxidant formulation efficiently reduced thymine dimer formation. This combination of pure natural low molecular weight antioxidant provides meaningful synergistic protection against oxidative stress in skin and powerful for protection against photoaging.You will definitely see amazing radiant glow with your complexion within 4 weeks!
    ★This Serum contains the most active and stabilized Vitamin C— which is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Vitamin C is powerful in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. Stabilizing your skin’s levels of vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production. It is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines. Applying our vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally.
    ★Joyal Beauty Super Brightening Vitamin C Serum Is An Innovative Advanced Natural and Organic Solution For Your Beautiful Skin! This Serum Contains The Most Effective, Stabilized, Healthy Natural Ingredients Such As 20% Vitamin C+Vitamin E+ Hyaluronic Acid+Ferulic Acid+ MSM+Much More, It Gives Your Skin Brightening And Younger Look! Dramatic Functions— ☛Provide amazing eight-fold small molecular weight antioxidant protection. ☛Proved reduce and restore sunburn cells up to 96%. ☛Prevention of the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin. ☛Fade sun spots and discoloration right away. ☛Refine skin texture and reduce wrinkle formation. ☛Plump skin cells and increase elasticity. ☛Provide deep moisture protection on the skin. ☛Prevent and treat UV-induced damage. ☛Brighten and restore the skin cells to its natural radiant glory.
    ★This Serum contains the best plants-derived Ferulic Acid to DOUBLE the function! — Ferulic Acid is a potent antioxidant found ubiquitously and at high concentrations in plants. Ferulic acid is a potent antioxidant with synergistic interactions with Viatmin C. It readily forms a resonance stabilized phenoxy radical which accounts for its potent antioxidant potential. Ferulic acid protected membranes from lipid peroxidation and neutralized alkoxyl and peroxyl radicals. It protected against iron-induced oxidative damage. Its incorporation into a topical solution of vitamin C+E improved chemical stability of the vitamins C+E and doubled photoprotection to solar-simulated irradiation of skin from 4-fold to approximately 8-fold as measured by both erythema and sunburn cell formation. This antioxidant formulation efficiently reduced thymine dimer formation. This combination of pure natural low molecular weight antioxidant provides meaningful synergistic protection against oxidative stress in skin and should be useful for protection against photoaging and skin cancer. Ferulic acid not only provides increased stability to a solution of vitamins C+E, but also adds a substantial synergistic photoprotection, essentially doubling its efficacy. Moreover it provides additional protection against thymine dimer formation that should prove useful for prevention of skin cancer. These studies support the hypotheses that UV radiation produces apoptosis by triggering the caspase cascade in both epidermis and dermis, and topical vitamins C, E, and ferulic acid can protect against caspase activation.
    ★Joyal Beauty Serums carefully choose dark amber glass pump bottle as packaging instead of dropper bottle to avoid the active ingredients exposure to air and light. Since we know all antioxidants, including vitamin C, are vulnerable to deterioration in the presence of air and light, the smartest choice is definitely dark container with pump so that light and air don’t degrade them quickly. With pump bottle you do not need to open the serum cap every time when you apply, while opening the dropper serum usually increases possibilities of some ingredients exposure to more air and light. Also pump bottle is easier to control the usage compared to dropper bottle and avoid waste of serum.Indications
    This Serum can be applied once or twice daily,AM and PM. This Serum is the first product that should be applied to the skin after cleansing and toning (if no toning, that is fine). Apply the serum with one or two fingers (so as to avoid wasting the serum on your hands) and massage gently thoroughly into the skin. A sunscreen should be applied over the serum in the morning and a moisturizer appropriate for an individual’s skin type should be used over the serum at night. Serum can not replace moisturizer if you have dry skin type, you still need to apply your favorite moisturizer after apply serum. However, if you have oily skin type, you may find applying this serum alone without other moisturizers makes you feel more comfortable. It is up to your feeling. Feel it, and find the best way to use it.Ingredients
    Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C),Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM),Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid),Organic Herbal Infusion,Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe),Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel),d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E),Carbomer,(2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin,Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil),Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.Directions
    1. Apply small amount of serum to your face twice daily (morning and night) after cleansing and toning.(If you do not use toner, apply serum immediately after cleansing. If you only use once daily, use in the morning for better sun protection.) Our serum can even be applied to the sensitive skin around eyes. But avoid contacting directly with eyes. 2. When applying the serum, you may slightly massage your face using circular motion with fingers for 2-3 minutes for better results. You self facial massage should be especially soft and gentle around your eyes. The act of massaging will stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation and also the nutrition ingredients present in the serum will be able to penetrate deep inside the skin. 3. Then follow with moisturizer. Vitamin C Serum is good for all skin types. Remember it is not moisturizer.You still need moisturizer after applying serum: —If your skin type is normal or oily or combined, after applying serum, follow with a non-greasy light moisturizer is suitable; —If your skin type is dry, simply using deep moisturizer mixed with or without high quality facial oils will help. You can also add to apply our Ultra Hyaluronic Moisturizing Serum after apply Vitamin C serum, then follow with moisturizer. Using air humidifier in your bedroom at night is also very good since humidifier adds moisture to the air, and our serums containing hyaluronic acid attract moisture efficiently, thus benefiting your dry skin. 4. Our vitamin C serum can be used daily, morning and night. Can be used under any moisturizing cream,sunscreen and makeup. Do not forget to apply sunscreen to avoid the sun damage at day time. Remember vitamin C is not a “sunscreen” because it does not absorb light in the UVA or UVB spectrum. However, vitamin C limits the damage induced by UV light exposure. At night time, applying the serum and moisturizer before bedtime and getting enough beauty sleep.
