I’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.

Lately, 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 🙂
