How Badly Do You Want a Clear & Healthy Skin?

27/01/2018

how to naturally get healthy glowing skin. How to get clear skinI’m writing this post at 6 am. I was sitting on my bed at 5 am watching “The Bachelor” and wishing I could just get up and fold my laundry rather than lay by it in bed – #RealLife. As I sat there, I somehow rubbed my face and realized it wasn’t smooth. I was “shook”. Then it hit me, my skin isn’t as healthy as it was just 10 months ago. I have been dealing with breakouts. You may have read this on my blog before but I never started breaking out until last year. My skin has been as smooth and clear as can be. So when I started breaking out, I just didn’t know how to handle it. No matter how many “how to get clear skin” posts I read, things weren’t changing.

As much as I love skincare and have a huge section of blog designated to skincare, I sometimes don’t even take good care of my skin. I wear makeup (foundation & lipstick) on Sundays when I run most of my errands and meet more people so that is naturally a very exhausting day for me. This means that by the time I get home, I am knackered and don’t feel like washing my face. As much as I read “don’t sleep with makeup”, I still somehow slump on the couch with makeup on. I wake up the next morning promising to do better. That’s the cycle. This and some other disastrous habits are some of the things I do that have hurt my skin.

how to get clear and healthy skin naturally. How to get clear skinLately, I’ve been feeling the need to wear complexion products to cover some blemishes that I have. After recovering from my Hyaluronic Acid experience, I have been having major hiccups with my skin. I can’t seem to pinpoint what the problem is (well, sorta). Idk if Vegan Acne is really a thing but my skin has been off since I started eating plant-based. I won’t entirely blame it on my going plant-based tho. I know that I do truly make some major skincare mistakes and need to do better. So I want to rectify this

Asking my self “how badly do you want a clear & healthy skin” was a reality check. I have asked myself this question before but today, it really hit me when I felt just how textured my skin had become. I know I want a healthy skin, I want the skin I once had. At this point, I am willing to do whatever It takes to get my skin back to being healthy and clear. So as badly as I want it, here are some skincare resolutions I personally will be making to get my skin back to that point. Let’s just call it….

There you have it. I want a healthy skin badly enough to commit to everything in this post. I wrote this post as I was seriously thinking about my skin. Good thing I wrote this down. It makes for a good blog post and I hope someone finds it useful.

PS: I’d love to do this with others. If you’re interested, I could turn this into a fun skincare challenge for us and hold each other accountable 🙂

Don’t forget to share this post! It only takes a few seconds and it means a lot for my blog 🙂

  1. I love what you say about the complexion hazards of being a skincare blogger; you hit the nail on the head so articulately! With so many products in rapid rotation, it can be hard to tell what’s working and what’s not, and like you said, you never know how different products/ingredients may interact. Great post and hope you’re seeing progress!

    Increasing water intake definitely helps. Water flushes out toxins from the body and improves blood circulation which inturn has positive effect on skin. Lemon + water is an efficient combination to purify blood and weed out toxins faster.

    Yes, I’m definitely down for a skincare challenge! I’m trying to be minimal and consistent with my skincare routine as well. Asking yourself how badly you want clear skin is always an eye opener and energizes you to take adequate steps towards it 🙂
