Day And Night Skin Care Mistakes You're Guilty Of
Every girl has a beauty routine that she totally swears by, whether that's the traditional cleanse-tone-moisturize skin regimen, or the trendy Korean skin care routine. Apart from sticking to your go-to skincare habit, watch out for these tiny slip-ups that may be sabotaging your journey to a picture perfect skin from day to night.
NIGHT: Shutting your peepers with makeup on
While forgetting to remove your makeup for one night can be forgiven, it simply cannot be a habit. Sleeping with your makeup on can be tempting after a long day, but this could lead to clogged pores and oil glands, and causes your skin to age prematurely. Yikes!
Nivea Gentle Cleansing Wipes
Solution: Keep a tub of makeup wipes on your bedside table for a quick cleanse after a long day before dozing off.
DAY: Over cleansing
Assuming you followed the cardinal rule of never ever sleeping with your makeup on, save some time during the day and skip the morning cleanse. While the evening cleanse helps remove excess dirt and oil, during your sleep the skin produces oils that are hydrating and balancing which is good for your skin. Over cleansing can strip off these natural oils and can dry your skin out.
The Face Shop Clean Face Mild Toner
Solution: Wash your face with water and if you must, use a mild toner afterwards
NIGHT: Tugging on the under eye area too harshly
Playing with eye makeup is always fun, but carelessly removing it at night by rubbing and tugging can result to puffy eyes, wrinkling, and sagging.
Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover
Solution: Show your peepers some TLC by taking some time to be extra gentle with it. Pour some water-based makeup remover on a dry cotton ball, and leave it on your eye for thirty seconds before gently wiping your eye makeup away.
DAY: Splashing on hot water
It's extremely tempting to splash your face with hot water to slowly ease yourself for the day, but it can be problematic for your skin. Hot water can dehydrate your skin which isn't exactly how you would want to start your day.
Solution: There is no need to splash your face with extremely cold water. Instead opt for lukewarm water for better rinsing.
NIGHT: Loading up on skin care products
There is a common misconception that at night is the perfect time for one to slather up on skin care products. But too much of everything can be harmful for your skin, too. The more products you add on the less effective it will be.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Solution: After your cleansing routine, use a facial serum at night when your skin is most receptive for healthier and fresher looking skin upon waking up.
DAY: Moisturizing your face alone
When it comes to taking care of one's skin one tends to focus on the face alone, and forget about the rest. But the neck is one of the most sensitive parts of the body, and is often the most neglected one as well.
Etude House Pure Water Baobab
Solution: Don't forget to lather up on the moisturizer from your face down to your neck area to keep your skin glowing for the years to come.
NIGHT: Putting on eye cream
The skin around the eye area is a lot thinner so when you apply eye cream before sleeping you'll tend to wake up with a puffy set of eyes.
The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Eye Cream
Solution: Applying eye cream during the day should do the trick of correcting dark circles under your eyes and preventing wrinkles.
DAY: Relying on SPF infused makeup alone
Whether it's the summer season, or the rainy season your BB cream which boasts of SPF protection is definitely not good enough to protect your skin from the blazing rays of the sun.
Nivea Protect and Moisture Sunscreen Lotion SPF50+
Solution: Apply a teaspoon amount of sunscreen to your face, your neck, your chest, and the top of your hands daily for enough sun protection.
NIGHT: Sleeping on cotton pillowcases
Constantly pressing your face against your pillowcase can cause trauma to your skin, and this is further aggravated by the friction against your cotton pillowcases.
Solution: Switch to silk pillowcases instead! Smooth silk minimizes friction which minimizes creases on your face, too. Plus silk pillowcases are also better for your hair. #DoubleYay

Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
Poetry #2: YOUR VOICE
When you talk, your voice brightens my days. You provide me comfort in all the little things that you do. Your deep and mellow voice sends a tingling feeling inside me that makes me want to keep you in my life. I love talking to you every time, every day, every night and every minute if I could. You're someone just simply amazing.
