Let’s take about skin care. A lot would ask: How to keep our skin healthy and young-looking? And I think almost all dermatologist and skin care experts would agree that proper nutrition and skin care routine is necessary.
I had acne breakout back in 2003, and it took a while for me to get rid of them. My self-confidence was really low. And, even if I am past that breakout, I haven’t faced a full body mirror. I mean, I rarely look in the mirror. When I passed by a boutique with a wall mirror, I somehow felt dismayed. When I got home, I decided to really take a good look at myself in front of the mirror. I was in disbelief that my skin looks older than they are. I look older than I am.
There was even a time when I bumped into a co-parent and after few minutes of talking to her, she exclaimed that she thought we are of the same age. But I am in fact seven years younger than her.
I realized that stress and irresponsibility caused me losing that “beauty”… that “glow”. As it has been said, age is just a number but if its seen in your skin, then it’s a problem!
