7 Skin Care Tips You Need to Know Before Turning 20
Most girls are blessed with smooth, great skin at a young age. But as you grow older, the skin grows older, too! That's why it's important to take care of your skin even if it doesn't show any signs of dullness or worse, aging. To make sure that your skin looks amazing as you enter adulthood, we're listing down the skin care tips you need to know before turning twenty.
Don't just focus on the face!
One common mistake that girls make when it comes to skin care is that they spoil their face, but forget to take care of the rest of their bodies. While most of the skin care products are targeted for a glowing face, you have to make sure that the rest of your body's skin is soft and healthy, too. Spoil your skin with body butters and lotions for moisturizers and loofahs for a good exfoliator.
The simpler, the better.
The beauty about being young is that your body is still actively regenerating and self-healing. That means that you don't really have to use a ton of beauty products to maintain its glow. More often than not, the classic cleanse-tone-moisturize skin care regimen is already enough, but a dash of serum is always a great idea.
Water does wonders!
Whether you splash it on your face or drink eight glasses for the day, water indeed does wonders for your beauty game! So keep your skin hydrated all day long with a glass of H2O.
Even if you religiously apply your moisturizer and eye cream on your skin, what you put inside your body is just as important as your serums and acid toners. Remember, nourishing your skin does not only apply to skin care products we use topically. What you eat matters, too!
Have a skin issue you can't seem to fix? Give your usual skin care products a break and go natural! Want to fix dark spots? Try coconut oil to fix the issue. Need to remedy irritated skin? Aloe vera will get the job done easily!
Use cold water in the morning!
An easy tip to achieve great skin is knowing when to use hot and cold water—especially when you're heading to the shower. Cold water is best when showering in the morning, since it wakes up your system and the cold water against your skin will give you a rush of endorphins! A happy morning indeed! Plus, it tightens your pores and keep dirt from getting absorbed, too!
Shower using warm water before hitting the sheets.
While it's tempting to turn on the heater every morning, warm water is best used at night because it relaxes your entire body, preparing you for sleep. Plus, it warms up your pores and allows your skin to absorb the skin care products better.

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
