In the past, I’ve made many mistakes that teenagers will usually make as they step into the world of makeup. Now that I am older and more knowledgeable in this aspect, here are 3 valuable pieces of advice I have for the younger ones.
#1: Don’t pop your pimples
The most satisfying but worst thing to do is to pop your pimples. Everyone knows that its not good to pop your pimples at home as it will cause unsightly scars. Trust me, I’ve been there. But don’t worry, the pimple will subside in a few days. You can use the Clear Love Kit to help fight off the acne bacteria on your skin. You can even give facials a go to deep clean your skin! Although the pimple might still be visible for a few days, it sure can’t compare to living with those scars for the rest of your life, can it?
#2: Confidence comes from within
It is important to understand that confidence comes from within, regardless of your appearance. Beauty standards are temporary, your body is forever. Occasionally, the world decides that certain features make you more attractive. Thin, low-arched eyebrows were all the rage back in the 90s, but today, thick and straight eyebrows are the in thing.
Since beauty standards are ever-changing and there’s no way to keep up with it, why not own what you have? If your confidence comes from within and is not built on your appearance, nothing can take that away from you.
#3: Start your skincare routine early
There’s no harm in taking care of your skin at a younger age. In fact, there are benefits to it. As teenagers are more prone to having pimples, using a serum that will help unclog pores and regulate sebum production is important. Using a moisturizer, especially one with balancing properties, would help to hydrate and keep your face clear. Having parched skin might lead to signs of ageing making their appearance sooner.
Prevention is better than cure. The sooner you take care of your skin, the longer your clear skin will last.
I wish someone gave me this advice when I was younger, but I guess it’s never too late. Now that you have this advice, be sure not to commit the same mistakes as I did!
