Just like hair, a girl's skin is one of those things that can make or break your feel good factor for the day.Wake up in the morning with a clear glowing complexion? perfect. Wake up with dull, tired looking skin, or god forbid a spot or two, and most women will be left feeling not so fabulous.
I have to say that I have always been pretty lucky with my skin. As a teenager all I suffered from was a few spots here and there, and I have never had acne. I take very good care of my skin, I never sleep with my makeup on (EVER), I cleanse and tone twice a day and I use sunscreen on a daily basis. My skin is very oily, but most of time that does not really bother me as it's not very hard to handle. I have however, noticed that as I have gotten older, my skin is starting to have some more "grown up" skin issues.....such as dryness. Yes ladies, oily skin can be dry too! No matter what I do, my skin has it's dry patches (under my eyebrows and on the sides of my cheeks n case you were wondering) and I suffer from pigmentation from past sun damage (back when I was not as sun aware) and if I ever have a break out, the scar will stick around for life. I use to have an issue with the size of my pores too, and while thy are not 100% invisible, they are no longer huge thanks to my daily use of the clarisonic.
I think as a beauty blogger and YouTuber, you end up becoming a little more obsessed with your skin than your average woman, because you know so much about it, and I must also point out the skincare is my weakness.....sure I love makeup and nail polish, but my true passion is skincare. I love everything about it, and I truly enjoy the process of taking off my makeup, cleansing and giving myself at-home facials on a weekly basis. I am looking for the perfect skin as I think it's so important and the base of everything else, but I can't seem to be there yet.....
How do you feel about this topic? what are you skin issues?
