Toxic Tuesday – I’m Divorcing You, Acne.

Oh Acne!

Psst… it’s true.  Junk food causes acne, at least based on my personal experience.

 Last week, it wasn’t even a struggle to say NO to every single cake, donut or chocolate which was right in front of me. I’m sure you can relate to it, it was just one of those days you want to eat everything and anything.

 So this happened after I savored every single delicacy for the whole week…

 I’ve been trying to find ways to clear my skin up but the thought of just looking at it is pretty demoralizing.  Hiding my imperfections under a good concealer sounded like a perfect idea but I refrained from doing so as I feel it will only make things worse.

So here’s a list of things I’ve trying to do to get back on track

  1. Consuming copious amount of plain water
  2. Limiting my sugar/junk intake
  3. Trying to exercise even if it’s for 15 minutes (The sweat helps, a lot)
  4. Rinsing my face with organic lemon juice once a night
  5. Leaving Manuka Honey on my face overnight

You know how everything these days is related to YOLO, well you only have one skin, in the words of Tim Gunn, “Make it work!”

Perfectly Flawed Vitiligo Project

Hey gang!

I’ve been up since 8am today and if I’m up at that ungodly hour on a Saturday there had better be a damn good reason.

Well, today, there was such a reason. Today, I participated in a video shoot for a project called “Perfectly Flawed Project” that focuses on raising awareness about the skin condition vitiligo and also helping others embrace their uniqueness.

I am so proud to be a part of this movement created by Telisha Gibson and I honestly hope I can get involved with more projects like these. The shoot was relaxed and comfortable. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see and meet two girls who I follow on instagram and also have vitiligo.

(then I asked for a photo like a normal person would)

It was a great experience to hear each person share their own stories on vitiligo from when they first noticed loss of pigmentation to how they coped and everything in between. Each person was strong and there was even a little 6yr old girl who was interviewed. She was such a cutie pie and also very brave to talk about how she felt when people teased her at school. Yet, when asked if she knew she was beautiful, she proudly responded with a “Yes”. :’)
