Just another sleepless night… (a random rant)

Published

on

As I lay here on my bed, I’m on my phone. It’s 05:56AM right now to be exact as I’m typing this. I can’t sleep. What is keeping me up at this hour? Well it’s thoughts about my life. I’m twisting and turning, can’t find a comfortable position to sleep in… but it’s the thoughts. It’s the overwhelming pressure of keeping up with everything. How am I going to do this? How am I going to do that? How am I going to face them? What if everything turns out wrong? I’m just so anxious. I can’t stop worrying. It’s cold too. And my head hurts. I can’t stop thinking about certain things. I’m in a constant state of worry right now! My heart is racing fast. By the way, I rarely stay up this late. But tonight is different. I had a deep conversation with myself about my future. I’ve been evaluating my entire life today, throughout the entire day, from early morning til now. Perhaps it’s the build up of that, which has put me in a sleepless state? Maybe. Anyways, I’m still typing right now and it’s 06:04AM. I’m trying to think about the positive side of things but there’s just some things I can’t get out of my mind. I’m stuck. I feel stuck. I don’t know what to do. I’m trying to be brave and strong. I’m trying to stay calm. I also just put my headphones on and a calm meditation track is now playing. It sounds peaceful. Maybe this could be my remedy to fall asleep? Well it feels good, my body feels like it’s resting but my heart beat is still fast. I want it to sync with the beats of this track. And I’m lying on my back. My pillow is flat and my head feels like it needs a lift. So maybe I’ll just get my third pillow and place it underneath my head to give myself that uplifting feel. There, I just did. Now I somehow feel more relaxed. But I’m still thinking, and I don’t know, I have no idea if what I’m typing right now is making sense (LOL), but typing all this is like therapy to me. I love words!😂 and I think I’m in a relatively calm state to fall asleep properly now. I will end this mini rant in the hope that you enjoyed it (if not, I’m sorry, I know it’s random) and I will now try to get to sleep. It’s 06:12AM now and it’s still dark. I should fall sleep before the sun comes out… goodnight!

Is Skincare Really Important Before Makeup?

Published

on

By

There’s a common saying, “makeup is temporary, skin is forever” which is something we should all deeply think about because it’s inevitably true. For example, you can change your eyeshadow and lip color but no matter how much foundation goes on a face, it’s hard to cover up dry, bumpy, or neglected skin. We are born with the skin we have and just like our bodies, we should treat it like a temple. If you’re still not convinced skincare makes a difference, here are a few things to consider about the importance of having a good skincare routine:

1. Better Skin, Less Makeup Product

We use makeup to change our flaws and highlight our best features. With a skincare routine your better features will begin to show more, creating less of a need for makeup; and we all know that less make up means healthier skin in the long run. The same advice goes for pimples! If you have a bright red spot appearing in the morning, you can apply colour correcting creamer instead of “more than the usual amount” of foundation.

2. Flawless Makeup Application

Your face is a canvas for the masterpiece that is you. Think about an artist applying a base coat of paint, it is easier on a smooth surface over a bumpy one. If you take care of your skin and stick to a skincare routine before and after your makeup application, your chances of having that flawless masterpiece is higher and not to mention, easier!

3. Less Product

Over time as your skin begins to clear up, you’ll notice yourself using less and less foundation. Why cover up such perfect and flawless skin? Its an endless cycle of less product, healthier skin, and less money spent! But of course, that doesn’t mean to say that you can’t apply as much makeup as you want for fun (because I do it too sometimes) – because you can! You just have to take some time to think about your skin for the long run just to boost your self esteem.

4. Feel More Confident

You now have glowing skin, your blushing pink cheeks are natural and your under eyes are no longer dark. It feels good to wake up every morning knowing you only need the bare minimum on your face. It’s a huge confidence boost knowing that you are doing the best for your skin!

5. Makeup shouldn’t stay on your face 24/7

Whether you like it or not, your face can’t handle having makeup on all day and all night. Of course, its always good to take the precautionary steps if you know you’ll be out all day, like using primer and a hydrating mist- but it still has to come off at some point. Makeup over time can be damaging to your skin, lips, and eyelashes. Foundation can leave the face feeling dry and can infect pimples over time. Mascara dries and chips off, taking your eyelashes with it when you’re rolling your face around in the pillow.

Therefore, cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin ensures that there is no more product left, and if you’re wearing heavy makeup, double cleanse!

When you get into a skincare routine, you will gain a better understanding of your skin’s needs! This knowledge can even help you pick out the right makeup for your skin as you learn more about your skin’s “flaws” and why they appear. I hope this was helpful and remember, treat your skin like a temple!
