Long time no talk! I started my summer class a few weeks ago and needless to say that has been keeping me plenty busy so forgive me! Anyways, today I wanted to come on here and share my nightly (and sometimes mornings too) skincare routine since it was a routine that really worked for me. So first, let’s start with the base product that cleared up my skin a good amount…BIRTH CONTROL. Now this might not work for everyone, but the type of acne I was getting was hormonal so the birth control really helped a lot, especially with my chest and back. Next step is once I get in the shower ( I shower at night) I exfoliate my face using the St. Ives apricot scrub and right after that I use a gentle facial cleanser which is usually different every time, but right now it happens to be one by clean and clear. The next step is once I get out of the shower, I use a 100% witch hazel toner which is AMAZING, it really helps to get any leftover junk out of your face. The final step is the key to nice skin…. MOISTURIZE!! I personally use coconut oil and it really helps to hydrate my skin. That’s all there is to my skin care routine and hopefully this might help someone who has yet to find their perfect routine!
First off, I want to say congratulations to all the recent grads out there, but this post is mainly focused on the recent high school grads. Congrats, you’re done. Most of you will be going off to some sort of college this fall and will be starting a whole new chapter in life. Don’t get me wrong, graduating high school is something to be proud of, but something you will soon realize is that it’s not everything you imagined it would be. College is a whole different ball game than high school, you’re finally on your own and while at first it might be cool, you will come to realize that a part of you actually misses living at home. Another thing about college is the classes. For one, they’re harder…a lot harder. Secondly, it’s weird walking into a class of 200 people and not really knowing anybody. You will start to miss that connection you made with your teachers and classmates back in high school and how everybody knew each other. If you start to question yourself sometime throughout college wondering if you’ll ever graduate or if what you’re majoring in is actually what you want to do, don’t worry, that’s normal and you’er not alone, you’ll figure it out along the way. I guess what I’m trying to say is that going off to college will be different, it will be scary, it will be sad, but it will also be a million times better than high school. You have so much more responsibility, so much more freedom and so many more opportunities. Live it up while you’re in college because the tough stuff comes once you graduate college. Congrats again and I’ll see y’all in the real world.
