Beauty Secrets8:00 PM
I grew up believing that the less you put on your skin and your body, the more you'll age with grace. My mom raised me with that kind of thinking because as a doctor, she advises me to go all-natural. Before I sleep, I just take a bath, wash my face (just to remove make-up and dirt), brush my teeth and that's it.
Yes believe it. The more I try to apply lotion on my body, my skin gets irritated and itchy. Whenever I apply moisturizer or anything on my face, it just breaks out. The best thing that works for me is when I leave it as it is. I care less what soap my mom buys from the supermarket or what shampoo is on the rack. This is maybe the reason why you won't see any beauty and wellness products here in my blog simply because I don't use anything in particular. Haha. Plus, I don't even go to skin clinic centers. Na-ah (nevah).
I'm just so thankful that I have a regular skin, one that's not too picky when it comes to cheap or expensive products and my face occasionally has around one or two zits only (I have one now), but so far no hardcore acne yet. Whenever I have a pimple, I just put a pimple gel on it and leave it until it dries out. At times I put toothpaste on it (a myth that works for me), haha.
Definitely I don't have the perfect skin; I have a lot of qualms about it but I just shrug it off. Despite my huge facial pores, oily nose, dark knees and elbows, scars and bruises acquired from my dance training, I'm happy with the way it is rather than putting tons of products and end up ruining it by the time I'm 50.
Here is my challenge for you: Leave your body and your skin product free. Eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise and be happy.
