Last minute Christmas shopping. And I swear, it's not because I'm last minute...it's because I couldn't go out to buy all my gifts till today. Going pay check to pay check for gas in my car is no fun. And today is the payday, soooo it's time to buy all the presents! :D
If you're reading my blog, you've probably noticed I don't wear make-up very often. It's because I prefer keeping my face clean of dirt and oil. I reallyy hate when my acne flares up so I'd much rather wear nothing on me than risk more acne on my face. :P Even foundation messes with my skin! I've had quite the journey to acquire clearer skin from my teenhood years. Like many others, I used Acutane as I got it from my dermatologist. I tried many other topical solutions and pill solutions beforehand, and this was what worked for me. But it's not a miracle cure for all acne. You still have to maintain with topical solutions when you do flare up from the environment and etc. With stress from school and all nighters, you can imagine the toll it takes on my skin....I've also got dry patches every now and then as a result of the Acutane. But I use CeraVe lotions (google it's like $12) on all over to make sure everything is moisturized.
Most people get really reprimanded for not wearing makeup especially in a incredibly visual world, but I've found just being in my skin with minimal make-up really is just fine. I can be confident with a little bit on me!
