Skincare Goals 2018

I have been obsessed with skincare ever since I got my first zit and it's one of the topics that I talk very enthusiastically about. If we were to have a meal together, it is very likely that I begin with "So, what has your skincare routine been like?". Kind of like a walking, lol. (ؑ‷ᵕؑ̇‷)◞✧

Anyways, after years of informal interviews with people, I, finally at the grand old age of __(insert age)__, have finally realised and accepted the fact that good skin is really all about having a healthy lifestyle. Sure, pile on your beauty products because they promise so much and make you feel so good. But ultimately, the skin, being the largest organ of the body, is really a reflection of what goes on inside.

Hence, here are 4 habits which I would like to adopt this year. (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و ゙

  1. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
    Exercise works wonders for my body. If I don't exercise, I fall sick real easily. Unfortunately, life gets pretty tiring and well, there's this thing called laziness... Heh. So here's the plan. Exercise at least 3 times a week. This includes running (Which I have stopped ever since my London trip. 😕), my 'lazy' routine* and Muay Thai sessions (Once the gym is done with renovations.). On the other days, it will be 50 crunches and 50 push-ups right before I sleep or I'm thinking of 12 Sun Salutations or 50 burpees (LOL. Who am I kidding.) in the morning. Hmm...

    *My 'lazy' routine: Jump rope x1000, crunches x100, push-ups x100 and some other random exercises. If it sounds frightening, it really isn't!

  2. Drink plenty of water.
    I usually only drink water and tea. Nothing else. And it's always one cup of water that starts my mornings.

  3. Sleep early c'monyoucandoit.
    Ugh, gawd. I know this is super important for my skin. When I sleep late, I get more blackheads and clogged pores but ughhh, there's just so much I want to do. Well, not really. Aimlessly scrolling the Internet or Instagram is not doing anything at all. Trying very hard to cut those down. Discipline, Char. Discipline.

  4. Shower in cold water.
    London's cold air, along with its high humidity, was sooo good for my skin. And gosh, really. Most Londoners have good, poreless skin. While there's no legit Science to this and it's very possibly due to genetics, I like to believe that it is really the cold air working its magic. Hence, I've been turning the temperature dial down whenever I shower. There are just some days when I really miss covering myself in a blanket of warm water though (Like whut right? In Singapore. Go figure.)...
