Skin Updates

I was always blessed with skin that couldn’t break out no matter what. I ate a lot of spicy food, sometimes had bad sleeping habits and I never really took skincare seriously. Even puberty got nothing on me and my skin. however, just like anything in life, if you don’t take care of it, it will go bad. This past year I have had my ups and downs with my skin and I want to share my tips with you all. Hopefully it’s helpful!

I got a part time job at a sushi restaurant in December 2014. This is when my skin started breaking out badly! For starter, I got put on a crazy schedule working 35 hours a week for just a part time job! And my hand constantly touched food, cleaning detergent and what not. I did have a very bad habit of touching my face often, which worsened my skin as I transferred all of the bacteria onto my skin! Also, my manager was giving me a hard time at work so I wasn’t happy working there. In short, dirty environment and stress contributed to countless pimples on my face 😥 For the first time in my life, I understood how people felt about acne.

Fast forward to January. I moved to another sushi restaurant to work and I couldn’t be happier. Even though the stress at my new workplace wasn’t apparent, I still broke out. I then figured that maybe it was the food I ate at the restaurant. Oily and greasy food with least amount of vegetables contributed to my breakout. Now after 2 months of constant breakout, I decided I needed to do something about it to change my skin health!

I took 3 weeks off work, I started to invest in skincare products (reviews coming soon!) and my skin couldn’t thank me enough for it! 🙂 Even though I still have some blemishes from the breakout, my skin is very smooth and bright. I also don’t break out anymore, hallelujah! ❤

In conclusion, when your skin isn't behaving as you wish, you have to pin point what activities you do on a daily basis that contribute to the problems, and you have to be brave enough to break that routine or actively seek for a solution!

Have a great week, my awesome readers! I can't wait to share with you more tips and tricks on beauty :*

Much love,

Carol ❤
