hi! what’s up? today i’m going to be sharing some tips on how i manage to keep my skin clear (for the most part). before we get into this post, please remember that i’m not a dermatologist or anything like that.without further ado, let’s get into the post!believe it or not, packing on less makeup does a wonder for your skin. like all living things, your skin needs some time to breathe and by layering powders over it, your skin will get irritated. this summer i’ve managed to not wear anything heavy over my skin because, 1. i’m too lazy to even try, and 2. my skin feels so much better. since the beginning of the summer, i’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin.okay, i’ll admit it. i’m not the cleanest eater all the time. i like the occasional candy bar or bag of chips, but for the majority of time i try my best to not eat a ton of junk food. when you fill your body with artificial colors, sugars, and oils, it’s bound to react negatively. so if you’re looking for a quick way to help your skin out, cut back on the bad food.i know that you can’t exactly control how much stress you’re out under, but you can minimize it. find a way to eliminate the problem or to cope with it. when you stress, your body freaks out and causes your acne to go haywire. now that it’s summer, you finally have some time away from tests and stressful exams (unless you’re in summer school).this is one that i struggle with SO much. it’s just a really bad habit. when i’m bored, i touch my face. when i stress, i touch my face. it may seem hard to break out of this habit but i promise that when you do, it’ll be worth it. your hands carry millions of germs and bacteria and smearing it all over your face is a recipe for disaster.i hope you guys enjoyed this post and that it helped you out! like i said, i’m not an expert but from experience, these have helped.have a great day!
When we were little kids we admired our older siblings. They were allowed to go out, were allowed more freedoms and they had more of a say in what went on in their life. And you, poor little you, had to abide by your parent’s rules and agree with them. We dreamed of the day we would be able to walk into the doors our middle or high school, excited for the liberties that came with being a teenager. We all thought that 8th-12th grade would be a piece of cake, just like in High School Musical. Sure, we may have been scared, but all those fears were hidden behind a facade of brand new shoes and a fresh haircut.
But after we finished the first month (I died after the first week), we realized just how much of a hell being a teenager was. We didn’t get straight A’s (I actually failed a couple of tests) or even get to have a crazy life. No, we were just tossed more chores and given tons of responsibility. However, we have to realize that disappointment is a huge part of growing up. We won’t always get everything we want and we have to learn to accept that and move on.
This year has been an absolute roller coaster. I went from being a dependent 8th grader to a slightly less needy 9th grader. In the matter of a couple of months, I have changed so much. I have learned that procrastinating is ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE and fudges up your whole life (but I’ll probably still do it next year). So please, as a former wanna-be “grown up”, use your time wisely and make smart decisions. I know that most of the people who read my blog (I love all of you very much) are in middle school or high school already, but I still wanted to get my message across, regardless of your age. But despite me making growing up seem scary and just a big hassle, you don’t have to be worried. The pros outweigh the cons by a landslide. Sure, there is acne, crushes (those absolutely suck), and mountains of homework but it’s all worth it in the end. Growing up is a part of life (literally) and may seem tough, but we’ll make it through.
If you made it to the end of this, thank you so much. I know this was WAY different than my usual content, but I was just in the mood for this. I’m sorry if it gets a little off-topic, I don’t regularly write like this.
