Beauty Q&A: I Have A Lot Of Whiteheads On My Nose. What Do I Do?
Acne, blackheads, and blemishes are just some the most common beauty problems that girls face, but whiteheads are also prevalent among girls of all ages, too.

But whiteheads can be just as pesky as your modern acne and can cause your skin problems, too. Read on to find out the causes of whiteheads and how you can finally get rid of them!
Q: Why do I have a lot of whiteheads on my nose?
Dr. Raissa: We all have the greatest density of oil glands on the T-zone of our face—the forehead, nose, and chin. During puberty, hormonal changes cause these oil glands to be more active. Oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria can block pores and cause blackheads and whiteheads. Sometimes these can get infected and cause bigger pimples. But don’t worry because whiteheads can be removed by using products with salicylic acid, glycolic acid or retinol. After a few weeks of use some of the whiteheads will dry up on their own. For the remaining ones, try exfoliating with a gentle once a week scrub. Never pick at whiteheads with dirty fingers since these can get infected. For stubborn ones, manual extraction with a comedone extractor can be performed by your dermatologist.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
