Kill the ZIT!

Kill the ZitOh zits! They plague many of us as teenagers and unfortunately can reappear in our 20’s, 30’s and beyond! I remember as a teen looking at one of my zits and thinking- “I just want it KILL it!” (The bacterial – that is – that created the monstrosity!)

My parents took me to the dermatologist where I was put on a steroid drug called Accutane. It was a miracle drug with terrible side effects. Dryness that sucked the life out of you so bad it made your lips bleed, a predisposition to suicidal depression and a -by law- mandate to be on birth control because it deformed a fetus. It was (and still is) pretty bad.

Of course, we didn’t know that then. It was a ‘quick fix’ to gorgeous skin.

Well, I’ve learned a lot since then. In my 20’s I started researching herbs and essential oils as a means to find something natural. Today, I still research, but certain remedies I found I have continued to use and this is one of them!

Here are some raw facts of these 3 ingredients pertaining to the skin:

Coconut Oil:
– It is a proven, safe moisturizer for dry/ sensitive skin. (1)
– It is an effective sunscreen, blocking out 20% of ultraviolet radiation. (2)
– The Lauric Acid (the fatty acid in coconut oil) is a proven antimicrobial and kills bacterial. (3, 4)

Lemon Essential Oil:
– It devolves sebum and may help reduce the amount of sebum in your skin. (5)
– It is a proven antibacterial and antifungal. (5, 6)

Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia):
– A proven anti-inflammatory. (7)

– A proven antibacterial. (8)
– Proven to kill bacteria associated with acne. (Propionibacterium acnes 9, 10)

Together, these oils make for a VERY potent serum to fight off evil zits! So stop the war of acne on your body! Don’t Pop – STOP! And KILL THE ZIT!

Let me know what you think!

Mardi Gras 2015_THIS

Ty Herndon is Steamy!

Ok! A few minutes ago my sister texted me that Ty Herndon came out…of the closet! My first reaction? Finally! I can’t count the number of friends (and family members) I have in my life who struggled with their true identity. We ALL know someone.

Now, why should I care that another celebrity came out? Because I was lucky enough to be a dancer in one of videos back in the day! (1999 to be exact!) Were there questions about his sexuality? Yes. Did we care? NO!

All I’m going to say is that he was FANTASTIC to work with! Such a great individual and all-around nice guy! And SO TALENTED!! So to Ty! I’m sorry it took you this long to be comfortable to openly discuss all this, but I wish you even better success in your life and career!!

Karmyn’s Song List…

I wanted to share my song list from last Wednesday’s show! It went really well! The rain kept some folks away, but the right people were able to be there! 😉 Funny thing, I’m typing this while recovering from a cold! Yes, my husband came home 3 days BEFORE the show with a nasty cold and was worried I’d catch it. Well, my body wouldn’t let me catch it until 3 days AFTER the show! (Thank you Jesus!) This weekend was rough but thankfully I taught online lessons yesterday…that kinda virus can’t spread over the interwebs!

I am VERY excited to see the show myself! 🙂 My parents were not able to be there, so we decided to record it, and thankfully the fantastic Jim Vern was able to film it for us!!! WOOT!!!

The show is about coming to NYC. From the time I saw my first Broadway show in 8th grade, pageants, learning the songs that shaped my love of music, moving to Los Angeles, marrying and moving to Manhattan. It ran a little over time, but we will know for next time!!

The AWESOME thing is this: I now have a show that can run again for people to come to see! A dream come true for me!! My goal for the next show is more instruments: bass and drums specifically! 😉 A few more…special plans in the making too, but I can’t share until I’m 100% sure!! Thank you Daryl Kojak in advance!!

One theme that was prominent throughout the show was my amazing mother who had NO clue she was encouraging me to fall in love with American Songbook songs! A gift that I will be FOREVER grateful for!! If you don’t already follow my Mom’s Facebook…well you should! She’s a funny, loving, God-fearing woman who loves her family and loves helping people!!
