beauty world (cha cha cha)
Warning: Trip down memory lane coming ahead. Proceed with caution.
When I was younger, I used to be very unhappy with the way I looked. I had really bad skin and combined with puberty and the angst that comes with being a teenager, I used to think I was the ugliest person in the world. I’d even hate to look in the mirror, and there were times when I would not want to leave the house, preferring to hole up at home rather than go out and be stared at by other people (or so I thought). It was really quite traumatising, and it seemed to me that all my friends had such perfect skin compared to me. Those were dark times!
Well, fast forward about 10 years, and I can safely say that I’m no longer that self-hating person. I don’t have perfect skin still, but I guess as you grow up, not only does your skin naturally improve since you’re no longer a teen with raging hormones, but you start to learn that diet, exercise and good skincare start to play an important part when it comes to having good skin. Also, I do believe that as I grew older, I became more comfortable in my skin (haha, pun fully intended), so I’ve become accustomed to the fact that I don’t have perfect skin and hey! that’s ok! 🙂
So anyway, I got to thinking about this because today I read in an advertisement in the paper about a new moisturiser from Vichy that’s meant for people with oily or blemished skin, and there was a promotion so I bought it!
It’s called Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care, and supposedly capable of reducing imperfections (duh) and controlling sebum in 4 weeks. So anyway, it came with some other products as well. I figure, no harm trying! (Note: This is not an advertorial, I’m just a sucker with these kinda things.)
Anyway, here’s how I look like today:
Oily skin? Check!
Break-outs on the side of my face? Check!
Large pores? Check!
Ding ding ding! We have a winner! 😛 Well, here’s hoping there’s an improvement to my skin after 4 weeks – my birthday comes then so it’s either I look better or I look terrible! No pressure eh?
Anyway, here’s something random, in the photo above you can see my reflection on the left, I find it kinda spooky but cool! Hahaha. Ok random.
Ok I’m excited to use the new moisturiser (is that normal?), so here I shall end. Goodnight folks!
