"Something natural would be munching on fruits! It's a big MUST that I eat at least one a day. I also like making fruit-infused water for me to drink. Aside from the natural benefits of fruits, I always swear by is argan oil! It hydrates both the face and the body so well to the point that I don't even have to use moisturizer at all!"
Angelique Manto (@angeliquemanto), 20, University of Santo Tomas
"I make sure I wipe my face with either a makeup remover or micellar water before hitting the sheets and of course, the age-old beauty secrets, to drink lots and lots of water!"
Vivien Nelsen (@viviennelsen), 20, De La Salle University
"I don't use a towel to dry my face since I have normal to dry skin. Instead, I use my hands to pat the water into my skin. It keeps my face more hydrated and softer than drying it with a towel! I also leave green tea bags in the freezer and use them to de-puff my eyes in the morning."
Arianna Cowper (@yannacowper), 21, De La Salle University
"BB cushions are my secret to getting the perfect no-makeup makeup look! You don't need to put anything on your face after, it doesn't take up much time, and I love how it gives me the perfect dewy skin without it being too oily. I went to a K-beauty event a few months ago and ever since then, I got obsessed and hooked on these cushions. They work like magic! It's a must in my everyday make-up routine."

"I swear by Clinique's Ultra Surge moisturizer. It's the only product that succeeds at giving me the perfect amount of moisture without causing oiliness! And also, Glossier's perfect skin tint!"

"Whenever you work out, make sure to always use a clean towel for your face and wash your face right after to avoid pimples and whatnot."
Carmela Fortuna (@carmelafortuna), 21, Ateneo De Manila University
"Massaging your face with essence/moisturizer every morning and night. Plus apply two thin layers of sunblock every morning before leaving your house!"
Chesca Campos (@chescacampos), 21, De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde
"My beauty secret is exercising regularly! It keeps my skin healthy, radiant and glowing"
Sandra Riccio (@ricciosandy), 22, De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde
"For skin care, yeppunonnie ph is the way to go! They have so many varieties for skin care and they are all so good! I recently tried Belo Sun Expert Hair and Scalp Protection from the sun and it's the bomb.com! As for foundation, Makeup Forever HD foundation! It's a little too pricy, but it's amazing!"
Bianca Simeon (@biancasimeon), 20, University of Asia and the Pacific
"Don,t skip the sunscreen and always moisturize! I use Celeteque's Moisturizing Sunscreen and Glossier's Priming Moisturizer for this. Invest in good cleansers and the like. I'm a huge fan of Glossier's Milky Jelly Cleanser because it's mild and it removes all the dirt from my makeup and from Manila's pollution. I also love Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Facial Cleanser because it always always feels like it's able to reach the depths of my pores."

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
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?
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!
