Genucel By Chamonix Supports Women While Empowering Contributions Help Build Confidence

Friday, February 1st, 2019

 

Once a woman experiences any type of abuse, the typical result is lowered self-worth, diminished self-esteem, and even self-inflicted violence. Although the violence is mostly physical, the internal dialogue that victims of abuse experience include an ongoing thought pattern that can be just as bad, if not worse. Therefore, it’s vitally important that those individuals use self-care methods to not only find ways to increase their personal worth and value but to also find tangible ways to bring out the best in themselves. It is a practical way for women, who have suffered immense abuse, to overcome post-abuse symptoms, which can remain dormant and show up when least expected.

When a woman, who has suffered from abuse, is able to channel the negative energy and feelings of inadequacy into creative expressions, such as through dance and art, it has resulted in an effective self-care routine that improves upon those feelings. Additionally, it’s important that they make a concentrated effort to focus on maintaining a healthy body, by using proper hygiene methods on a daily basis and develop a regular exercise routine. Mental health professionals, as well as survivors of abuse, highly recommend these types of self-care methods for achieving an improved physical and emotional well-being, after an experience of systemic abuse.

Genucel, which is a subsidiary of Chamonix, has provided support for many of the women of abuse through “beauty bags,” which include items such as toiletries and Gunucel products that are intended to improve a woman’s self-image. These items were earmarked for Women Aware as support of the organizations’ ongoing services. Women Aware was founded in 1981 and provides food, shelter and recovery programs for abuse victims. Not only are Genucel by Chamonix products useful in helping victims rise up from their state of depressed feelings and unworthiness, but the products provide the right formula for reducing the appearance of age-related wrinkles and damaged skin.

Through a patented PhotoCellTec technology, Genucel has been successful in using the Malus Domestica plant to reduce age-related wrinkles, as well as divots within the skin, which both are often much more visible when continued abuse occurs. Furthermore, after the use of the products, a victim’s confidence rises, which typically takes a huge toll from the abuse.

In addition to providing monetary and product support, the company actively participated in the first “Moving Beyond Abuse 5K Race and Charity Walk.” It is the intent of Genucel to further assist Woman Aware with continued products and help restore the self-esteem of women and children everywhere.
